    Default The Runaround

    I have looked ALL over, and downloaded about 15 star wars maps, and only 2 or 3 seem to be consistent. Some dont have planets listed. I can't seem to find an all inclusive planet listing, other than the ones that just say what a planet is, but not showing it on a map. Attempting to make my campaign as accurate as I can, is there anyone that can get me out of this ratrace runaround?

    Thanks,
    McKizz

    I can't think of one off the top of my head, though I would recommend a site search (on your right-hand side of the screen) for "Galactic Maps" and see what you find.

    McKizz, there is no all-inclusive galaxy map. Such a creation would have to include hundreds, if not thousands of worlds described or just mentioned in Canon and Official material. Now granted such maps exist in the real world for real places, the simple fact is most people don't care enough about fictional worlds to bother mapping them out in their entirety. There are exceptions, of course, but most of those deal with a single specific planet. I sincerely doubt there are any instances of well-populated space opera settings with complete star maps. Even Joss Whedon's Firefly, with only roughly 73 inhabited worlds spread out across a single immense star system isn't fully charted.

    Probably the best (most accurate) Star Wars galaxy map on the Internet is at nav-computer.com...many people around here consider it the gold standard. How much that has to do with the fact that it was created by fellow forum member, cartographer, well....

    The "New Essential Chronology" book also has a well-detailed map of the galaxy, though it's missing any planets introduced after "The Joiner King."
