Description of the Nearby Systems Tables[edit]

The current description text is incorrect.

Improvement proposal: "This original feature has also been updated, to indicate the focused system's closest neighbors. The resulting table contains the larger of the following two lists:

  • the 20 closest systems
  • all systems within 60 LY

in ascending order of distance." --Gruese 08:18, 18 January 2020 (EST)

Scope of Project Phase 3[edit]

are we going to go all the way back to Age of War? I for one would love to see that but I must confess I have to backtrack on the pre-2571 map data. When Bad_Syntax and I started compiling the data we removed the borders and legend sections of the PDF pages to see what systems appear under those objects, but according to an official statement by TPTB, if they don't appear on the map they don't count. Until I can get that sub-project completed (well, restarted first, then completed) I think it's best we delimit the scope to the beginning of the Star League. --Volt (talk) 19:40, 19 January 2020 (EST)

Q about the source code[edit]

This is more of a question for Gruese than a bugspot or feature request: will you be putting the mapgen scripts up on github like the ones you made for your webmap? I've been looking for a press-button-receive-map method to refine some projects of my own, and this is basically everything I've been looking for. --67.165.196.215 23:59, 1 February 2020 (EST)

The code will be on github, MIT-licensed. It's going to take a little bit though - I am cleaning it up and porting it to TypeScript. The current script has grown somewhat organically and is messy as a result. Gruese 05:45, 2 February 2020 (EST)

Existing Inner Sphere and Periphery Maps[edit]

Is there any complete maps showing the IS and/or Deep Periphery in the style of this project on site or for download, even if in beta? Would be really handy to have.

Hey, I am not a member of the project team so do not know what is in beta but maybe Groueses interactive map of the Inner Sphere circa 3025 could be of use.--Dmon (talk) 06:50, 16 February 2020 (EST)
