Star Wars Map: 11/17/2015 15:02:21

There needs to be a good Star Wars map in recognition of the new movie coming out. I have seen support in the forums for a Star Wars map.
--Is anyone willing to help create this map?

--Does anyone have any ideas?

This will hopefully turn out to be a large scale project, that gets a map put into Warlight that you players and gamers will genuinely enjoy. Thanks for the help ahead of time. I hope to see some posts about this, ideas, and maps (projects). Have a good day, and have fun on this forum.
Please and Thank You,
meowing_panda

(P.S. There can be and probably will be more than one map coming out of the work put into this, put forth some effort so we can see some progress...)

What sort of size would you want this map to been? Several hundred territories?

Have you ever made a map?

What sort of thing would you include in it? (planets ect)

Anyway I'm happy to give ideas but I not sure I would like to make a star wars map unless I got really enthusiastic about it (got another map In the works I'm trying to complete )

I don't think Star Wars has much recognizable geography that could be made into a world map... perhaps Coruscant or maps showing specific battles like Endor or Hoth could be interesting? A map based on the schematics of a ship like a star destroyer, nebulon-B frigate, or one of the death stars could be fun as well.

You'd probably need to make a solar system type one. Basically like the space map on the Battlefront game. EDIT - it is galactic conquest mode

The other option would be for a specific major battle. Like Hoth or Endor.

Proper Star Wars galaxy map is one of the maps I'd really like to see. I can already see lots of "historical" bonuses in it, distribution modes, one territory bonuses for major planets, trade routes, Unknown Regions as hardly accesible part of map, etc.

I like this map: http://img3.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20130325041255/starwars/images/1/10/MainGalaxy.png

Some of the other maps:

One downside is that SW universe is post-reboot and all the maps are void now... but I'm not really buying into it and sticking to old. ;)

In my opinion this one is perfect:

https://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/Star_Wars#/media/File:Galaxymap_p1.jpg

It shows all major systems as well as the galactic regions (inner rim, outer rim, etc..)

I started a star wars map once, and get inspired with the same links Cata sent earlier, I found them and I started it one year ago then gave up, unfortunately the link of this map was in my former account (the retired one), I may have kept a file in my computre, if you guys are interested I can send you an example of what I did here.

A Star Wars map is something I really would like to see, but create this kind of map is far too compplex and would require a collaboration.

Sorry, I will not be making the map. I don not have the proper equipment to make the map. I would love to "hire" someone who could do it for me... I also like my map better, yours is a little to close together, but or course there can be more than one.
-EDIT-
Now that I think about it, I do like yours because it has already been started...

Meow (I will call you that way since its very confusing with my own name), planets are very close because this universe is huge: hundreds of planets have to be taken in count. If you noticed and paid a little attention about the Star Wars Galaxy maps already, you would see planets are just small points, so to render it as a playable map for warlight is quite a hard work.
Actually, I would need some help and advices for this.
Some planets are bigger: Mon Calamari, Korriban, Naboo, Corruscant, why? because I planned to also draw territories in this very famous planets, whereas it was pointless to draw territories in some minor planets (one territory is enough for most of them) because people never heard of them even in the Star Wars stories, movies, etc.

I highly need some fans here because despite the fact I am myself one I would like to make it as close as possible to this universe's reality. And at the meantime make a very nice playable map allowing people to play an infinte possibility of scenarios (My master is Dameon here, and I am glad he one year ago taught me a little about how to draw a correct map, he is the very guy that made the most successful fictional map that is Game of Thrones maps and motivated me to create this map)

Now some explanations:

    * picture 1) here represents the left side of the map, you have STAR WARS written and below it, it actually would represent the Galactic parliament.
    Im not sure yet how to render it correctly, but I have an idea and I would actually do something close to Dameon's works in the Game of Thrones map: he had the idea to render the small council of the seven kingdoms into his map.
    I would like to do the same thing for Star Wars, here each circle would represent one seat: one galactic sector. Consequently, I intend to make it a very nice galactic diplo map where many scenarios could be created, something never done before.
    Below the Galactic parliament, you have the Jedi temple and the Sith one, to distinguish the duality of the force, I also want to make something possible if people want to make a scenario opposing Jedis and Siths.

    * picture 2) Here is only the North East sector of the Galaxy I started to draw, you would notice as I said earlier the greater planets by importance (Korriban, Mon Calamari) as possible capitals of sectors. I also draw the trades routes between planets, respecting the original map, I also added some 'funny' posibilities to skip the galactic routes, adding some 'black holes' or gates (think about Stargate), that way people would not have to take forever to conquer the entire Galaxy.

    * picture 3) another screen capture, showing you the original map, I think personally this map is the best I found, as some are incomplete and others too big or irrelevant and erroneous.


    Now I really would have hoped more contributions or answers here... As I told you I would like that people contribute if possible, and if some of you are huge fans of Star Wars, I need you, so dont be shy :)

Last but not least, if you are interested to collaborate with me (I will certainly not finish it alone), PM me or post a message here, if many people are motivated I may create a chat later, where I will upload the updates.

Again I can send you my file and I have an idea how to make a collaborative work (I dont know if this was ever done for the previous maps in WL), through google drive or any websites where we can share files.

Hoping this map would be (almost) finished when the next Star Wars is released (one month... thats gonna be hard)

Okay...
In picture two you mean wormholes right? They are the ones that bring to a different place in the universe (galaxy). In the end it is the builders choice to decide. Personally I would love to see picture 2 finished. Are picture 1 and 3 the same? I would like them all to be finished, but you do not need to do all of them.




I, meowing_panda , am in charge of this whole operation, pulling it together, and keeping everyone up to date.

*open* is an open spot for being in charge (creating) picture 1

angry_panda I am putting you in charge of picture 2

*open* is an open spot for being in charge of picture 3

Priority List
  • Finishing Picture 2
  • Getting a creator for Picture 1
  • Finishing Picture 1
  • Getting a creator for Picture 3
  • Finishing Picture 3


Note that this does not have to be done in order, this list just shows which item on the agenda gets top (the most) priority





Who would like to make Picture 1?
Who would like to make Picture 3?




I also need more clarification on which map Picture 1 is and which map Picture 3 is.




DEADLINE is December 18, 2015




Thank you for your support everyone, I am enthusiastic about our pursuit on finishing by the deadline. You know me,

You tell me what you would like to do. The monopoly was pretty great, but simple. Why don't you work on map #3, it is the easiest one and is in no hurry to be completed.
Also if you want I am starting a new project for a violin map. Would you like to that instead.

Well I'll come back in 2 week (When my second map should be done) then we can start to talk about what can be done. (Its better to push the star wars map back a few weeks than make a bodge job of it.)

Also are you creating the Violin map yourself?
