Why are some planets an empty circle and others a full circle in the Galaxy Map. Does this relate to the type of mission (ground/space) or what? I see some of the massive battles are squares, but I can't figure out what is with the planet circles.

Thanks for posting this. I was wondering the same thing myself.

One more bump for A) Science, and B) I know there is an answer out there.

I've been asking for a map key for ages. Does no one have any better info? I thought I'd figure it out from context eventually, but no such luck.

/bump.

I also am very curious.... As a suggestion, does it seem tied to whether you have a mission in the sector? That would be super convenient, but it seems like I noticed the full/empty circles day one before I had many missions.

I saw someone post this, and it might be true, though haven't really tried confirming it yet, but the empty circles on the Sector Map might be systems you haven't visited/explored yet.

I've been under the assumption that it related as to whether or not any game content had been created for that system yet - as clearly not even system has a mission in it.

Good theories, but I think I have always seen a mix of both on the map (so that rules out places I have/haven't been) and I think I have landed on both circles. Client patching now, or I'd check.

Edit: Possibly a Lore thing? Big planet/small planet?
