Map Name: Zarkon 7
Previous Draft: Zarkon 7 [04/23/2012]

Number of Territories: 33
Special Features: none
What Makes This Map Worthy of Being Made: It looks interesting, and it has an easy to understand layout.

I've made these changes:
-Added texture to planets
-Omitted the spaceships
-Moved Hiragally so it is more obvious which zone it's in

Would anyone like to second the changing of the font for the sector names? I really like the font, so I'd like one more person to ask me to change it if it needs changing.

I am interested in the +1 for each planet. How should I show that?

green2337, some official things first before the map.

Can you update your first post to show the current draft. Place your first draft (and any subsequent ones) into spoiler tags.
Your thread title needs to include what draft you are on and what page it can be found on. Lastly, replace the date when you update the map so we know how long it has been between drafts.

Map.
I like the textures which you have used but only the 5 and 7 bonus regions work. Both of the 3 bonus zones do not work at all. The earth type one is just a copy of the same image so this needs variation. The gas giants just do not work at all. Try to cover the whole planet with the same texture.
You have given each planet its own name. The first letter of each is in a bolder font apart from Carinthus. Why?
Why not use just one name like this for the whole bonus zone as you have territ names.

This is coming along great.

I kind of liked the direction I thought your first draft was going...I.E. this draft's 'realistic space' in terms of textures and no spaceships instead of the thematic playground of space the earlier draft was.

But I still will probably like this map either way.

very nice map. I like both versions, the texture gives to map realistic view. but you need change colour of names - the white ones are bad readable somewhere.

If the mapmaker wants to continue with the map, then one of the Foundry Moderators will be able to help put the thread back into the Foundry system, after an update has been made. ;)
