3D area map for space?
 
Since the space areas are 3 dimensional, it gets kinda annoying to have only a 2d map to work with. This isnt a real problem for the asteroid belt map that is more or less on a singular plane, but in the asteroid fields i have no idea where i am in height. The minimap is fine, im just asking for when you pull up the area map to have a starchart or a hologram or something
And what's that ship in the header to the forums where is says Star Trek Online?
Thanks

the shipis the vulcan d'kyr class cruiser. and a 3rd dimension to the map in space will help, ie lighter colour icons is above, darker is below, normal is same level plane.

I would hope that this thread would include the sector space map aswell. I noticed a drastic decrease in the quality of that map when Season 3 came out. It now looks like a bad out of focus picture with no definition at all. I'm not sure what caused this, maybe it's not able to read the new sector information?

I would hope a kind Dev (hint hint poke poke) would take up these small requests to improve the quality of all maps sector and system/asteroid belts. It just doesnt look right. Maybe something similar in appearance (If not function) of Stellar Cartography as seen in Generations perhaps?

It's a minor detail but a commonly used one. I'll beg if I have to :)

I hate the galaxy map as well , with all the flashyiness thats happenening to the game the galaxy map looks oddly out of place and real tacky and low par.
