But the schock came when I compared it to the other well known maps. Not only seem many planets misplaced, but also the whole galaxy seems to be bent and changed somehow. It fits with the previous locations book maps, but not with the NJO maps or Insider and Fact Files galmaps. And I do NOT mean the different perspective on the galaxy. that I already analysed. It has nothing to do with some major errors. Planets are close to planets they should be close to, but not at the right location or distance from them. instead of next to a world they are now above it or the unknown regions seem much smaller and other regions bigger than on the other maps. some examples, just to name a few: The locations maps are divided into quadrants. applying the same quadrant shematic to the fact files or njo galmaps (I used navcomps great one based on these for that comparison), the quadrants arnÂ´t quadrants anymore. it insnÂ´t symetric at all. The quadrant boarders near Thule and Quermia f.e. are on other maps closer together. also rishi and kamino seem to be now above geonosis and tatooine instead of at their side. again a note: it canÂ´t be explained with a different perspective, already checked that. So... why so many differences? which map is now accurate? is the one in the essential chronology that is upcoming based on the factfiles map, that navcomp used for its design or another design? questions over questions. and how to solve and explain the differences now? hm.. dunno. What I want and need is a galaxy map, seen from above, with exact quadrants and coordinates. but based on the factfiles maps and others. just with another perspective.
