The Galaxy Map.

Can importing a new galaxy map be done?

 

Wouldn't it be cool to revise the galaxy map, especially now that there appears to be an 'official one' (>source: The Star Wars Encyclopedia published by DeAgostini). Aside from enlarging the galaxy, we could perhaps have two new inclusions (mainly involving the tactical battle): First, the grave yard of Alderaan as a system (not that you can do much on it though, besides perhaps having mines in the asteroid fields....)

Second, how about the concept of 'deep space' where you can hide fleets. The tactical picture could be a picture of the galaxy (> like the end of The Empire Strikes Back). Perhaps deep space systems would be randomly placed systems across the game map, or buffers inbetween every inhabital system...(my mind is harking back to an old role-playing game called 'Traveller' in the 80's with it's cute hexgonal map. For every star system there were four or five empty regions of space).

We talked about this somewhere else, though i can't remember where. We could see if it's possible to create new sectors, and hence planets, then we could not put a planet in and leave it blank. By increasing the number of these we could have say half the map as totally blank but you could still send a fleet there? I don't know if that can be done, i'll give it a try over the weekend.

In the Strategy.dll I successfully changed some bmp to make a certain planet type loook like an asteroid field. In Rebed I changed some systems to be asteroid fields, I substituted Ghorman with Alderaan, and removed the colonized check, it will s till have resources but no population, still in tactical battle there will still be a planet not an astoroid field...

What happens if you go back to a system where you've already blown up the planet? And then end up having a battle there? What do you see in the tactical screen instead of a planet?

...emmmm........emmmm.....good grief, it would seem in all the long years i've been playing Rebellion I don't think i've ever had a battle at a destroyed planet. Now i'm real curious..... if there is an asteroid field, there's a DLL somewhere; if so, there's an image to exploit.... :twisted:

Come on guys, how cool could this be, battling in front of an asteroid field, with a DS in for good measure. I don't have multiplayer capability, so please let me know asap!!!

It would be pretty cool if the maps were a little bit more true taking in consideration the PT plus any other EU sources. Considering from some of the characters are EU, there is more room to play around a bit.

Is it just me, or are there huge discrepancies between the "map" used in SWR and other (official) galaxy maps out there?
