Galactic Map

Galactic Map

The Galactic Map uses a simple coordinate system: A 360 degree system is combined with a simple linear distance system, enabling people to use coordinates like 21:60, where 21 stands for the degree, and 60 stands for the distance from the core, measured in Avery (1 Av = ±536.4 ly). For three dimensional coordinates, coordinates like 21:60:-05 are used: the -05 stands for the vertical distance (in Avery) from the 60Av-line. In this case, the last number is negative, meaning that this location is slightly below the 0-plane of the Milky Way.

The Milky Way, more commonly called the Gar-Aerith, has also been divided into a number of sectors. An example of a sector is Faros Dotat-B: the map below should be self-explanatory.
There are a total of 12 Ros-lines (like Faros and Geros): the inner Ros-line is Core, the outer Ros-line is Laros. In very short messages, these sectors are often abbreviated even further: Faros Dotat-Beta becomes FDB, for example. Note: Caros is abbreviated as C, but Core is abbreviated as Co!



On this map, individual Aerithii (planetary systems) are marked with small coloured dots. The current list is:

- Gar-Aeroix, Green, Geros Etnet-A
- Hyzilfos Aeroix, Blue, Geros Etnet-A
- Sycentia Aeroix, Purple, Deros Botat-G
- Sol Aeroix, Red, Haros Fentat-A

The good thing is, it finally allows us to write coordinates that actually make sense in our messages!

My only complaint is that it does not get divided further Razz

I've actually wanted to update this map for a long time, and your comment reminded me of that. I've now uploaded a new version of the map, which divides every sector into Alpha, Beta, Gamma and Delta sectors, and added it the the OP. I've had to use a different image of the Milky Way for this version, which led to the systems being moved around a bit. The Gar-Aeroix and Hyzilfos Aeroix are still in the same sectors, however.

I like the update! It has a more professional look to the previous one, which was good but was starting to feel just a tad outdated (mid-2000's maybe?). This one feels modern, 2011-2012, with that pristine, HD, crisp look. I hope that makes sense, what with resolution and all.
