I love globes and they are awesome! I love running around with them and exploring.
Could we have a flat map though?
Globes are great, but they:
- Can only view the whole planet as they slowly rotate off world, making it hard to see the whole planet and decide where you want to build.
- Only rotate Off world…so there is no world globe when you are on-planet. You can just see around you…which makes it hard to chart a course to somewhere.
- Globes can be put on shelves, but Maps could be posted allowing you to see your builds coming together all at once. (especially nice for Sov worlds)
I would love to see my planet and watch it get built up on my map! I am a visual person and struggle to use Globes for navigation…they confuse me and I can’t always see where I am going. So I have to go Offworld, let it spin, find out where I want to go, then figure out N/S/E/W of my current location, then go ON world and head that way until it pops up on the globe.
A lot of steps to just try to get from here to there. With a flat map I could see the whole world at once! That would allow me to figure out where I am going much easier!
Globes - great for resource gathering
Maps - great for navigation (and maybe you can mark on them? to make then different then Globes?)
Just my 2c <3
