Science Fiction Setting – Historic Map circa 3600 AD, WIP#4

Thought I’d post an update: I’ve progressed 300 years into the future, relative to the last map. As I work on the “renaissance” of human space, I realize just how BIG this thing is. And I think I probably need to slow down the initial colonization of human space by a few centuries. However, I am not going to do that now – one of the worst mistakes one can make, in my opinion, is to go back and edit something before one is done with the basic version. That way lie inconsistencies and madness.

As you can see, the Terran Federation has had a few centuries of a head start over Empire; however, Empire is young and eager to expand. Expansion of the TF has slowed down considerably, as the TF consolidates its territory. It’s mostly driven by some strategic operations, and between 3600 and 3700 it will mostly concentrate on closing the gaps between the “arms” of its territory.

I’m actually creating these maps at century intervals – I should have done the same with the initial colonization. That’s a lesson learned for the future.

  1. I love the thought process that is evident. Even better is how you take the time to explain it and dance around the writing landmines. Advice from from the Grand Redditer 🙂
