This Thread is kind of unintentionally? supporting what I'm trying to do with the Forum Battle thing. Hopefully I can make a campaign out of it and all these political factors can have an impact on alliances or vice versa. We'll see.

If you'll permit it 501st then I think it would be a nice idea if you could all include (by editing your original post) a (as in ONE) picture of your Empires Troops and/or a link to you army thread if you have one. It will make it easier for me to find your stuff (for copying refrence for battles) so I don't have to a) bother you with PM's, b) get bored searching for stuff or c) Profit).

Sounds good. I will get mine up- i just want to throw together a SHIP first. Multi-Colored and a giant brick, but god damned, it gets the job done.

Ugh - Imageshack fails so hard - I managed to find a decent enough sized galaxy map to put peoples empires onto, and got photoshop going with enough layers to accomodate the whole thing - and then imageshack refuses to accept a single 5600x4800 image . . .

Alright, I've mocked up a map in Paint. Bet it's nowhere near as cool as yours, Scyth. Please don't anyone say anything about relative scale...

I'm going to link it, it's rather large.

Galaktik Map

I've got it up in Paint- it's expandable, and I consider myself a good enough hand in Paint to add everyone's territories. If you would post how many territories you have (DO NOT be ridiculous. The Assriyans have about 10, to put it in perspective), I'll place your empire on the map.

Errrr, about one of the galaxys in the circle sector in the bottom left.
In the scale of that map, i own about 4 pixels of territory...
I don't mind too much which one.

Thing is guys, scale isn't relative. I'm just trying to throw a map out there- which means that a small empire would take up one territory, a medium one would take up three, and large ones would take up five.

Call the "territorys" sectors, and then have "sub-sectors" inside them, line the sub-sectors using green, have them small, like 1 to 2 galaxys small!
So a really small faction can still exist along side a massive one and both can be seen on a scale.

You mean 'Galaxies' or 'Systems'? *confused*

This is what I have currently- Map. Should I stick with that or turn mapmaking duties over to Scyth?

I assumed they where galaxys!

Each one is supposed to be star. Ignore them. They are just a backdrop. The whole point of the map is to get a place of reference in the galaxy.

The wiki now has a page for this, here. 501st, you could add that to the intro post if you want. I'll update the list with each guys faction when I get his faction on the map. So tell me what you want!

AHH, i think a better way would be too remove the "sector" lines, and for us to change the colour of the stars depending on which faction holds it, and the territory would be outlined around those.
I think the location of stars is Very important to the territory since a piece of territory with 1 star has less territory than one with 100.

I've saved the map and i have marked the stars that i imhabit in yellow.

Your taking this a little too far muffinman. it's a rough map. we don't need to go psycho about the coloring of stars. besides, if you zoom in, there's a bunch of stars you couldn't see in every sector. and the lines work fine.
