|This is a map of the Star Wars galaxy, based on the 'Star Wars: Essential Atlas.' As a medium-sized map, nearly 170 planets & ships of relative key importance made their way onto this galactic chart.
Full guide here: https://www.warlight.net/Forum/125010-new-star-wars-galaxy-mapguide. Most planets are worth 2 each, while some are worth 3. Most fleet ships are worth 1 each. Coruscant is worth 4. All other regions or route bonuses are labelled & color-coded in game. More info in the link to the guide provided.
Scenario distributions exist for every major era of Star Wars. For FFA games, selecting the proper distribution at the beginning according to how many players there are is important to keep the map balanced from the start. Standard FFA distributions are labelled according to number of players for ease in creating games.
Note: This map may not work on some mobile or tablet devices because of its size and detail.

Loved it! So many interconnected routes makes it very difficult to defend

It's a very pretty map, but it's kind of hard to understand. Bonuses for individual stars are not shown, and some of the connections are very long. Plus, all of the bonus colors are the same. But anyway, I think it was well done, and I would recommend to all Star Wars fans!

Thanks for the feedback! Planets that are part of a region do not glow that color as it would be redundant; all the region bonuses, using routes, are color-coded, so regions should be clear. As for the bonuses for the planets, they are specified in the guide to the map now created and linked in the description. Putting them in the actual map would have been extremely cluttered. It is a different game than much of what Warlight offers -- the long connections are made for a reason, in respect to the Star Wars universe and actual routes used. It is my hope that many Warlight players can enjoy and appreciate this different style of gameplay which is faithful to the Star Wars universe. In addition, thank you for your kind words.

Astonishing artistic quality.
Review by Tarhani on 12/20/2015.
Planets and Ships all look the same. It is not easy to see, which of them is worth 1 or 2 or even 3 points until you take a close look. That could be done better.
Not a top ten map, but playable.

Ship connections are not only color coded, but dotted, surrounded with ships, and labelled nearby by the Fleet text. Even beyond that, all given fleet ships are highlightable by clicking the Fleet bonus sign, and each ship spot is actually slightly smaller than a planet spot. As for how much each place is worth, the overwhelming majority of planets are 2 and the overwhelming majority of ships are 1. Any other exceptions to this are dispersed evenly through the map, and all of them are specified in the description's link to the short guide here on Warlight. Honestly, without changing the nature of the map, nearly everything is there and easy for players to understand if they care to look.

Nice map. Very elaborate and true to the nature of Star Wars. Very original design 10/10

Pleasantly convoluted. Kind of like realising you are inside one's intestines during a lovely sunday brunch, only to find that you are not alone. There are a thousand other small fragments around you. You are food.
