I need your approval, if you are the author, for to use this image and to modify a part of it into a map with few scenarios for a game similar with Risk turn based type games, like AoC4 (age of conquest IV). It would be very exciting also for you to play my scenario made by me on this map, but before to publish it I need your approval. Then I invite you to play it and to see my modding scenario. Obviously, it may be promoting your game too.
Sorry, I didn't know about copyrights. I'm awaiting for your approval for the use of this map.

Man, a template for the symbols of the star system development index on a transparent background -- instead of a complexly textured one on a dark background -- would be amazing.

Damn lovely.

Can I ask where did you get the base map?

I've exactly the same question :) Very interested to have it or if it is available somewhere...

Still one of the best goddamn Star Maps on the internet.

I really wish I could make one as good as this!

Dawn, how many light years across is human territory here? How many light years do we cover?
DistantLightz Featured By Owner Oct 22, 2016
A bit late, but if what the internet tells me is right, and if this shows the entirety of the Orion Arm, then we cover an area 3,500 light years across and 10,000 light years long.

Hah, even equivalent of my area is here and damn, I'm practically on the very edge!!!
Really, fantastic work right here, I'm curious just how long did it take You to come up with all those names and locate them? Not to mention the graphics job. In the past I fooled around a bit with making up my own maps (just for fun, nothing serious) and I know it isn't as simple as randomly throwing names around, lest it doesn't look natural.

Loved SoaSE; great map and ideas!

Thank goodness this was not (Entirely) dead. It was an interesting alternate history military science fiction scenario to read about, with considerable effort put into world-building. When development of the Sins of the Solar Empire mod was cancelled and the wiki was taken down I was quite disappointed.

An interesting concept and I really like how you made this map. If I may ask, what program did you use?
DawnofVictory2289 Featured By Owner Jul 28, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
Photoshop, Illustrator and After Effects.

Thanks mate. And also, is the Democratic Federation essentially a union of the nations within the blue borders, like a United Federation of Planets for this universe?
DawnofVictory2289 Featured By Owner Jul 30, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
more like NATO or the United Nations, but yes.

I love this map. I made a (much shittier) alternate history star map based on DoV. Dawn of Victory 191

Hah, I remember seeing that awhile ago and being very confused.

What an amazing map, I love the use of earthling names as a legacy of each culture :)
