We should make like a crude map with circles. Big red circles for systems and small blue circles for planets perhaps?
And a small indication who is in a system and importance.(faction wise)

Hmm. Yes, that could work; though we'd need some indications on what is where :D

Personally, I don't think that this should be all that important. Our project doesn't need marketing and I don't think that it should be what draws users to Starfarer. Rather, they should be drawn to the game play and the excellent community. I think that if we were to promote Starfarer, then by extension, we will also market our project. In my opinion, the progression through Starfarer should be a few days with campaign, poke around on the forums for a few days, find a mod (our mod) they like, and use it. This project is an expression of our strong forum community, but I don't think that it is an accurate expression of what vanilla Starfarer, and ultimately the entire basis of this project, truly is.

Fair point, that's why I only go to the youtubers who have finished the campaign :)

Well, it isn't that big of a deal, now that I see it.  But on the bright side, the more the merrier! ;D

and someone else on the coding side, especially one who makes some missions and the faction files

also i was just thinking, but i think this should be our list of action:

1: intro/test mission

The independent can almost field a good whole convoy, 2 ships still need coding, but the rest is ready for implementation and polishing. And either the Simus Dim or the Pirates could be the attacking side. I dont know how they are on the way, but i already saw some sprites.

2: factions and their lore:
We need to get straight how many factions there will be and their lore and stance against the other factions. Hardly is doing a good job on it, but i only saw like 5 factions, and not all yet complete lore wise.

3: Map of the Sector,
