If map sizes are comparable between GalCiv2 and 3 then I'd like the largest map to be at least 4 times the size of GalCiv2's immense maps.
Map sizes larger than Immense? I just checked GC1 and GC2 and the largest map size went up one size between the Ultimate versions of each, from Gigantic to Immense. With the change to hex tiles in the map, I am wondering how sizes will compare with GC3. Are we talking about apples and Oranges here?
Another question: With the size names already up to "Immense", and "Gigantic" already in use, would SD like some recommendations for how to name larger map sizes? The names for the larger maps already have the sense of grandiosity, so maybe for GC3 StarDock needs to re-think about size names, perhaps using more names in the middle range to make room for larger sizes.
I just checked the map sizes in GC1 Ultimate and GC2 Ultimate, and sizes of the same name are not the same size. Here is the chart I made:
Size GC1 (all sectors are 12x12 tiles) GC2 (all sectors are 15x15 tiles)
Sectors tiles Sectors tiles
Tiny 4x4 48x48 3x3 45x45
Small 5x5 60x60 4x4 60x60
Medium 8x8 96x96 5x5 75x75
Large 10x10 120x120 8x8 120x120
Huge 16x16 192x192 12x12 180x180
Gigantic 27x27 324x324 18x18 270x270
Immense N/A 22x22 330x320
I am guessing, but wasn't "Immense" only available after "Dread Lords"?
