WARP POKER

Recommended Posts

I seem to recall 10+, but it is challenging to look through all the data to be sure.  In any event 9 is a large number.  The only consolation I can offer is that more than 50% of them are probably dead ends if it follows the patterns I have seen over the years.

So far I've been graced with a system having 9 warp points, a system with 6 warp points, and 2 systems having 5 each. I cry with joy upon finding a system with 2 warp points and will probably stroke out at finding a dead end. 

If I had to actually redraw the map by hand on paper, such as it was way back when, I'd be doing socially unacceptable things!

I have got one 10 and two 9s. But an average of 4 appears to be the norm. Dead ends? what are those?

 

WOW! Thanks! I think I'm feeling better now.¬†ūüėé

I draw my map in a spreadsheet., with circles representing each system and lines linking them for the warp points. Then all I need to do is drag systems around when the map needs to be re-arranged. Also, I write my fleets onto the map so I can quickly search for them.

Use Smartdraw. Not free, sad face here. But works. And yea, fleets are shown on map. 

Remember the Starweb days of redrawing the map over and over again by hand as connections were discovered.

I actually bought a program called "AstroSynthesis V3.0".   You can download a 14 day version and try.

Until the map gets too big I use Excel with shapes and connectors.  I also use a map that uses Graphviz, NEATO and SVG viewer.  This is out of the findpath program.  The main advantage to this is that I can create a map in just a few minutes, I can incorporate a number of mdb's  of different positions and it has never been wrong.  The downside is that it is different every time and I can't make any annotations on it.

 

Connecting one system at a time when you discover it is not old.  it happens every turn.
