Hi, Ok as you can see I have far too much time on my hands lol I have completely changed the layout again, it uses all the ideas above but the look is 100% Different (I started over from scratch), the image size is just over 3 megs (shrunk from 25 megs) Now when you first look at it (especially if its not full size) You'll think it looks chaotic and insane, but once you look at it in its 1:1 ratio (its 4500x4500), you will see its pretty cool (at least I like it) anyway this is a alternate version I thought you may like..

It includes all 15 Cortex Relay Stations and all 9 Deep Space Stations, and accurate orbit locations.
It took me a long time to make this version and has a much better "space" feel to it, Im rather proud of this version smile
(See if you can find Serenity)

Let me know what you think:

I'm sure your new layout is great but readers are lazy by nature and it would be a shame not to show them your work; this is why i took the liberty to download the huge picture and post here a reduced version.
If people want to see more of your work, they will take the time to download the bigger picture you linked to on your post.

Ok Thanks!

EDIT: Updated link above (I should be done now) No need to re-download unless you want the changes (all minor) image above still shows the general idea..

Changes:
1. replaced 4 of the suns with different images
2. Added ships flying around (alliance and reaver), but only one of each (didnt want to over do it) Changed the Serenity image as well
3. I hated those ugly grey arrows, so changed them to fit in better
4. Changed the Automated Cortex Relay Stations so that you can see the asteroid in the atmosphere to better show what they are, also gave them a blue glow so they dont look so static. Named one where Mr Universe lives.
5. many other small little changes here and there.
6. added credit to QM studios for the mini systems

EDIT: Changed the white Border to be a bit bigger to clearly show the Alliance Border.

Thanks again to The Savior for his work that inspired this.

@The Savior, Thanks for the great idea that my work is based off..

TheSavior has taken a break from the Summer Glau Wiki in order to work on a professional project (hope he will be back soon).

Knowing him, i'm sure he would have appreciated the excellent work you've done.

Wow, it looks great, especially in full size!
I"m amazed by the details you've managed to put in the graphic. You've certainly improved the version TheSavior made for the Summer Glau Wiki.

Good job!

Big Cosmetic Update!

Hello, all links in post above (post 38) have been updated.

I replaced around half of the planet images, I wanted to make sure all were unique and I replaced all the crappy planet images.. Many had just looked like colored balls, now they all should look like planets (for the most part)

I also added shadows to many of the planets.

I changed New Canaan to a ring world as that planet has a ring around it.

Final Update *Its Really Done Now*
(sorry for all the updates)

Fixed a few more planets, Made another ring world I missed (was a normal planet before).
I couldn't let it go as final until I fixed all text to be clear (left over from when I was saving it wrong) all text is now crystal clear (re-did all white sun and most red sun text)

Post 38 updated for the last time.

It is 100% Finished! (For real this time lol)

I'm sure he would have been proud that his work inspired you.

Since your map is a continuation/improvement of his Firefly 'Verse map, there is no need to create a new thread; it would be confusing for the readers and it's easier to promote one single thread than two.

Side note : sorry i couldn't help but your mastery of the Firefly world is way beyond the average fan. Good job!
