In my previous games i always bought sector maps from NPC's, just to reveal stations i haven't mapped or the new ones GOD has placed. However, in X3AP maps i buy never reveal undiscovered stations.


Am i imagining things or was it always been this way? Laughing

It has been like that for a long time. Since TC at least. No idea why that is a thing but yeah i've noticed that too.

I, too, don't remember ever buying a map even remotely "complete". I think the main purpose of these transactions is to give the player jumpdrive access directly into a sector without having to enter it "on foot" first. This can be especially useful if you buy a "map" for a sector of interest to you that happens to be several jumps away - now you can get into it immediately, without exploring out to it first.

Ill stop buying those maps, but i could have sworn they were still useful even after you mapped entire universe. Man, so much to relearn!

Hi,

it would be a nice addition to the game if those "special" stations would require a purchased map to be found and not just appear on the long range scanner.

Especially if those stations were really special - like the one selling space fly eggs in X2. But basically they are not relevant and not interesting.

Since my pilot fly using slow ship often, which move from sector to sector using jump drive, then above maps (even old) are useful to him. I understand, that some cartographers had been in those sectors long ago and had not updated their maps.

I buy them just for the reputation bump. I typically don't even look at what I'm buying. In fact I was jumping around the universe in a relatively new game just last night and found myself wondering, "How is that sector a valid jump destination, while none of its connecting sectors are?" I must have gotten it from a sector map purchase.
