Two Bajors? Art Issue
 
Which planet represents the actual Bajor?

This Bajor (as featured in the mission "Cage of Fire"):

Or, this Bajor, as featured in the Bajor System (the actual system, diplomatic mission and the system pop up image in sector space etc):

I know that personally, the first one, as seen in Cage of Fire, looks a lot more like the verdant world of Bajor than that dusty old dead chunk of space rock. Furthermore, the show also showed Bajor as being rather verdant, as seen on the memory alpha entry page (screenshot there).

Hopefully this can be corrected.

Thanks.

p.s. BOff pathing in the firecaves (2nd last room) still needs some work.

I reported the dusty version as a bug over a year ago. :p I certainly agree that the planet model from Cage of Fire should be standard for Bajor on all of the maps. I don't recall if the Cage of Fire map does so, but, it's also worth displaying the moon of Jeraddo as habitable. As that was the case in the DS9 episode, Progress.

Ya, I agree. Not sure how it happened (wasn't here), but I'm not happy with how the Bajor System looks, and am hoping to get some time to address it this week. Not in time for Ep 1 launch, but hopefully in time for Ep 2.

My goals: Bajor should be blue and green, much like earth. Represent several of Bajor's moons, especially the two you can see from the ground . . .

i though that was one of the moons, and the planet bajor wasn't on the map. fleet retreating behind a moon made sense to me. could just change the name of that map to reflect that

i always thought that when the game launched somebody made cardassia and accidentally stuck it in the bajoran system.

there is also some asteroids and things that seem out of place. A simple black and white background with some moons, will do just fine i think.

I was thinking it was some other planet in the Bajor System since we've gone to three locations so far.

Bajor 7 (Crack in the Mirror)
Bajor itself (Cage of Fire)
Bajoran planet in "Standoff/Second Wave"

I'm always surprised that when I visit Bajor, it never seems to look like the one from the "Cage of Fire" mission.

I'll check out those missions when I get to this task. Are all of those missions supposed to take place around the Bajoran Homeworld? Or are those missions supposed to be on other planets in the Bajor system?

Either way, I will likely unify them all with the DS9 skyfile/sun I made for the FE, and then for the actual Bajor system map, put in some of the moons (but probably not all of them.)

It's meant to be Bajor itself, at least that's what the mission text states.

Thanks for trying to look into this Tumerboy. Hopefully it will get corrected before the release of the social zone.

p.s. It might also be an art idea to add some sort of geothermal power plant to one moon as was the motivation for the Deep Space Nine episode: Progress

p.p.s. Would it also be possible to add in some generic spaceship traffic in the system. This is a frontier Federation world afterall... and when you get to it in its current form.. the only life are a fleet of Cardassian Galors! (dip mission)... At least a few ferengi ships if you can pass the word along.

Thanks
