Announcing the Starmap. It shows where your planets are across the SkyLords galaxy. Access it from the Planets page by selecting "Starmap" in the left menu. (If you speak Lithuanian, I would love translations! ).

Let me know if it's not useful or if you have any tweaks to improve it quickly. Larger feature requests should probably use the ticket system, and I'll get to prioritizing them once the code is stable. I started this a couple years ago, and EL gave me the final push to get it working tonight.

Hope you enjoy it :).

Nice Iiri! Thank you.

Didn't expect by the mention of it you would give up 4 hours last night but I appreciate it.

Thanks Iiri! Is it a lot of work to make it movable? Like where you can click and drag it or zoom in so you can get better views?

@Dire Wolf - I'd have to change the rendering engine to something other than a static image. If you know of any good JavaScript graphing libraries which support 3D scatterplots using a canvas element... It's feasible.

Turns out there is one. I've updated the starmap to the JS graphing library, and fall back to the static image if JavaScript is not available. That better for you?

Nice - can you add an option to change the display from coord to planet name?

Each star there is represented by up to three planets. Which planet name?

Star and planet is not the same

@Volciok Thank you. I've updated the link and page title with the StarMap translation since it does show stars instead of planets. I chose stars so the static image didn't overlap circles and bars and thus make some appear closer than they were.
