For the 1.7 metaverse, 7 systems are being added. The seven maps thare are being added have been pulled from old sources, but due to their age, names are all that survive in a easily usable format. So, you get to (re)build a new(old) map.

The Rules

  1. You get 1 submission and that's it. Pick one system and make a map for it.

  2. Your map submission must be named in the following format: [SYSTEM NAME] - [@YOUR ID NUMBER]. Example: Andosia - @14362

  3. Each map may have NO MORE THAN 13 planets. Stars dont count. Nebulas dont count. Asteroids dont count. This means you'll have to pay attention to the names list for each system, because a few of those have more than 13 names.

  4. Ideally, each map should include all listed names, except where there'd be more than 13 planets.


Winning
Chosen maps will be randomly selected from available entries for each system that 1) meet the above requirements and 2) dont totally suck.
Chosen maps will also likely be tweaked slightly for things like distance, especially if you didnt bother checking your math and just threw a bunch of random dots on a dartboard.
If your map gets picked, you'll of course have the satisfaction of having your map in the metaverse. You'll also get a pile of credits, 14000 of them.

Template
You can get a map template right here, but since these maps are intended for the metaverse, you dont need to include a map description or objective.

Can we rename the planets? My main concern is the Ross 348 system, where it seems to start at Ross 7, but nothing before that... The number system is off.
Also, can we make extra submissions that don't count?

how big can we make a map? and i noticed we can make a xml sheet with x,y coordinates on this map, isnt it kinda hard to picture that map that way?

think ill make an easy paint file to make the map first then estimate coordinates from there.


edit: got it, Ross 448 - @207510




Edit2: okay ty Doran ill fill in the spreadsheat later. just think its best/easier if the maker also post some kind of picture he/she had in mind, better to envision the map when its drawn, even in the simple paint form.

for size, probably want to keep it inside of roughly 30k square for the large ones. smaller maps can be in the neighborhood of 10-15k square
for examples of how big that is, tetra's about 30k across, and dres-kona's between 15k and 18k (its a little rectangular)

maps do need to be submitted in spreadsheet form. they do include an x,y scatterplot graph to show where each planet is relative to another (if not, one can be easily created in any decent spreadsheet program). granted, it wont show orbit paths that way, but thats what we have to work with (and nothing a little photoshopping cant fix)

348 is a known..thing. id prefer to have 348's names left as-is for now, but it'll very likely get a new set of names before it's added to the metaverse. havent quite decided how i want to handle that yet, maybe ill contact the chosen mapper for a batch of names. maybe not.
but use the existing names.

The .odf file will only let me input jumpgate, terran, nebula, and star. How do I fix that?

edit:nvm, fixed.

Easy fix. Highlight the cells you want to change, go to "Data", click "Validity", uncheck "Show error messages when invalid data entered"

For some reason this locks it to only existing data in that column.

Ross 338
Hopefully this works... Let me know if it doesn't.

Note* Didn't put any jumpgates. Didn't think it was required.
NoteII* I don't know the diameter of the planets anymore. Its been a while since the days of the old editor. You'll likely have to adjust the numbers anyway.

Also did Williams 22, I can post it if you guys want another not-counted submission. Let me know.

If it needs another JG add it below the star around 5kgu.

Bump. We need maps folks. Don't miss out on a chance to add to the game.

You cannot have OBJECT-B orbiting OBJECT-Q, unless OBJECT-Q was added before OBJECT-B

dont u mean other way round? Like..sun is added first, object orbit sun.

2nd in list prolly a sun or gas giant. object B. many planets later object Q comes into play, a planet. and now u say object Q need to be added first?

I assume u just mean list suns and gas giants first, and ur assumption of what object b or q is, is different from mine


well finished spread sheet that fits with earlier post of paint file map:

https://www.dropbox.com/s/hrtl0j52q7tyz7b/ross%20448.xlsx?m

ive added notes to try explain the basic intention of placements a little bit, tried to keep it short.

its a heirarchal order, you can have something lower in the order orbiting something higher up, but not the other way around

put it another way, the king's at the center, queen revolves around the king. rook, bishop and knight all orbit the king and queen, and the pawns orbit outside everybody.
darkspace will throw a fit if you try to have the queen orbiting a knight (we call that the lancelot effect, and the king's none too thrilled about it either)
