Created a new Sector Map:

Larger than the older one and a little easier to read. It is at the bottom of the Map page in the Knowledge Base.

Well, your system is at coord x=65 coord y=74 so on this map you go 6 over to the right and seven down to box 6,7. It's just a reference system.

Nice.. i was thinking about it also, Galactic Sectors but more like the sectors on a dart board, could be useful if it were a working thing so we would be able to select stars in a particular sector for reasons of creating empires/areas of control for the different races using the star search option on Galaxiki, like, click on a sector, zoom in and check the stars in the area. Maybe it could be something for a future version of galaxiki.

Using the Galaxiki Map ( https://galaxiki.org/cgi-bin/local/perl/galaxiki/account.pl?community_screen=custom00&device=computer ) you can already zoom in on labelled sectors, sub-sectors, etc.

LOST!

Hi all,

New tenant in my system. Question, maybe I've missed it, but how can I locate my particular home star and system with the map and it's zoom function? Every time I think I have it, I lose it. Also, how does one know if there are any inhabited systems (I mean systems that are owned) near mine?

(Not a jerk question, just trying to get around this site, it's a little frustrating.

Thanks for your time!

If you go to your System's page (in your case: https://galaxiki.org/cgi-bin/local/perl/galaxiki/wiki.pl?mode=star&id=1814202&level=3&coord_x=62&coord_y=61 ), the numbers at the end are the Sub-Sector location of your system. Here, X=62, Y=61 puts your system in Sector 6,6. When using the Galaxy Map Browser, as you hover over the map with your mouse, you can read the appropriate sector number in the hyperlink, typically displayed at the bottom left of your screen. To find neighboring systems, from your System page, just click on the "Neighbors" tab.

As an aside, not all Systems are displayed on all map levels.
