Does this Universe have some kind of border? I went on my navigation window as far as X 100 000 / Y -100 000 at distance: 138304.2 LY away from me and still no sign of something wrong with the software…! I have never seen posted some coordinates from that region.
That is more than 4610 days travel with normal speed, or 461 days (1.3 years) only jump-speed (w/o time for recharge)!!!

Maelstroem, is it really already programmed so big, or it’s creating new sectors when someone flies in?

in the german version, someone did reach the edge of the universe...
they went so far west that it would not let them go further (about -20000 i think?) he posted it on the forum, and maei "extended" the universe (by placing more systems) as most of this journey was through empty space

Here is a picture of the galaxy with its spiral arms:


(just ignore that "You are here" text Smile)

Not all starsystems are established yet, as it depends on the number of active imperators.

Bye,

Yea, I see - the space is BIG place...
I personally like the idea about spiral galaxies - this would make the game much more interesting... And of course the Universe is composed by many different Galaxies! Wink
I see that we are close to one of the arms - hey, emperors with big maps - do you see something like that out there?

any chance of a picture like that with some sort of scale? ^^
it's hard to know if the middle "circular centre" of the spiral is 20k, 10k, 30k or whatever in size

In .de, from the center through empty space to the spiral arm on its left its about 9000 ly. Depends on where you are and if you fly straight left/right or if you make some curves or moving diagonal.

Here is the part of the universe I could see during my career. You can see the border of the center area and the beginning of a spiral arm in the lower right part.

Hey, Merthos - you have half of the central region of the Galaxy posted there! Wink
But please, be so kind to tell me where is this "there"? Which major houses are seen on your map and around and where? Just give some orientation, please!

roughly the middle section was the final handuro area
if i say that before that, trurl and triac were once members of handuro, all of the agnari and underverse areas were in ex-handuro area, and dreistigkeit / facerider were past members

if you see a planet named "wohi" search => middle top
that was merthos's HP and he posted the coords of it in his goodbye post

kesh is up from the north on most sides, northeast of O_o_T, agnari make up a lot of the southeasterly prong (with underverse afaik)

Maybe you should place a black hole in the center of the galaxy, like the model built by most physicists.

What we really need is a scale. How big is 10.000 LY on this map? Alphabravo is right- that would give us useful info.

It's about 9.000 LY from the innermost to the inner border of a arm.

Pending on where you are exactly, the closer you are to where the arm seperates from the core, the shorter the distance is. If you are on the left border of the core and on the height of the "you are here" arrow and you want to fly to the left arm, its perhaps several hundred lightyears more then if you are on the southern border of the core and you fly to the southern part of the arm.

The lower arm of the galaxy splits off at about xpos 1890 and ypos 1530. That is about 2432 ly away from (0,0).

I am assuming that the upper arms split off at -1890, -1530.
