Agreed on all points. Current Sector Space feels like we're flying a toy around the holodeck. I can't wait to see what you guys have come up with.

The defera sector is the only sector that actually came out really nice.


I hate the borg sector, especially the "tile" green texture at the floor of it. It looks terrible.

Surely, you know the 'net rule of "picts or it did not happen"

The Exploration Sectors need the most work, IMO. I hope they overhaul them completely. Flying around in a box? Feels even more like a holodeck toy.

But it's a 'fake' sun...after all, it's smaller than my ship!

Fantastic! I commented back on the Tribble forum when I saw the new design for the first time back when Season 2 came out, but I have to reiterate, I love the new design, and completely agree with you about the sectors that were out for launch. (Seems like a lot went cartoony-stylized back then, I'm totally psyched about the apparent change in art direction. -- This coming from a graphic designer/3d modeler. )

Incidentally, I've noticed that lately I seem to be seeing more people in sector space, and the Deferi sector specifically, where it looks like there are a lot of folks around, yet it doesn't seem crowded. Good balance, I think.

I must admit in the new Orellius and Pelia sectors that have the new sector space layout i do love the lighting and especially the glow my nacelles etc..now have, very cool.

Gamma Orionis uses the 'vanilla' scheme not the new scheme. The two 'new' sectors are Oreillius and Pelia.
