[TC] Yet another X3:Terran Conflict sector map - Updated 23/06/2009

Post by Nicholas Kabourakis » Sun, 2. Nov 08, 04:29

Hi all,

This is "yet another" sector map for X3: Terran Conflict.

The style and feel is derived from my older map for X3:Reunion, but this time there are a couple of improvements:

- Derelict ships have their own icon for easy spotting on the map. On the legend page, you can find detailed information about the sector coordinates each ship is, the type of the ship, and also it's position within the sector.

- Super shipyards have their own icon too.

- Company Headquarters have their own icon as well, and on the legend page you can also see the names of those corporations and the sectors their HQ is in.

Also, due to the fact that Terran sectors tend to overpopulate the map, and in order to minimize the clutter caused by sector connections, I chose to represent some sector connections by altering the border color for those specific sectors. For example, the already known (from X3R) connection between Family Whi and Shareholder's Fortune instead of being represented by a line, now is represented by red border color for both those sectors. The side of the sector that hosts the gate that connects them, is a dotted line (i.e. Family Whi: east side, Shareholder's Fortune: west side). For those who don't have access to a color printer, there is a full list of sector connections in the legend page.

Other feature, carried over from the X3:R map include:

- Different icons for Shipyards, Equipment docks, Pirate bases, Special facilities.
- Differentiation between border and core sectors for all races.
- Pretty good readability on grayscale printouts.

As before, the big plus of this map is that it can be printed on a single sheet of A4 paper and still be able to make out all the information you need.

Well, that's it, hope you like it, and *please* if you spot an error or omission, let me know!

Nice :)

I can only spot one thing: It's Duke's Haven, not Heaven.

I need to get some new printer ink soon...

Thanks!

I was wondering if you meant to say MERCHANT HAVEN (not Duke's, teladi) at location 20-8 ???

Cheers

Definitely Duke's Haven... easy enough to confuse :) since it's in a sector right beneath Heaven's Assertion.

And props for the free ship listing... looks like I missed a few.

Thanks, Nicholas! This just became my preferred map, mostly because of the stated fact that it is still legible as one A4.

Now I'm just waiting for my new color laser printer to arrive, and after that I'll wait for the 1.3 patch before restarting TC from the beginning :)

Just spotted that you haven't put in the symbol for the shipyard in Rhonkars Trial. I think it has an Equip Dock as well, but not sure on that at the mo'.

Oh, and cheers for a handy map BTW!
