I think the name is gonna be a source of some confusion.  :blink:

Interesting name for a map.  But  I think Stardust might have something to say about it.

The reason why I called it Stardust was that it vaguely reminded me of stardust and the Fleetops member Stardust somehow. No other reason :P

Edit:
So if anyone cares to test this map online... I'd really really love to get some feedback on it.

Just play tested the map.
Here's what needs to be changed, indicated by some players.
- Add some darn scenery! it's sooo empty (I concur).
- Move the bases a bit closer to eachother

Anything else?

In that case, maybe I'll make a map called Haemoclysm...

lol. It wasn't meant as a referal to a player. Just reminded me of him a bit.
Anyways. I need to change a lot more.
I'll update you guyz when it's finished for another round of play testing

First post now has the new and improved version. I hope everyone like it  :innocent:
Basicaly what I did was move the starbases closer towards the middle, added some scenery and moved the main expansion back and closer together a little.

So, by all means, please playtest this map

Updated and Modified the map:

I moved the starbases back a little to create more distance between the bases and their main expansion.

I shortened and moved the center left/right asteroid/nebula ribbin, raiding should now be easier for cloaking races.

Added a damaging nebula in the center of the map and deleted the dilithium moon at the center of the map.

Fixed Start Location Positions on the selection mini map

Enjoy  :thumbsup:

So did anyone try out this new map? I really would like to know if you guys like(d) it or not.

I like the setup. Its a good Duel/Duel 2 alternative. I think the devs should make this stock. B)

I really like it! Nice possibilities to expand and some great open spaces for fleet maneuvering. I'll definitely play it!

Played this today - did like it. Heres my thoughts.

The bases seem a little too far from each other, maybe move more toward the center but not too much. Or maybe add something to wanna take the center.  maybe a single moon.

Other than that really nice map keep it up!

I did put a moon there previously. But it was to easy to take the center, and once taken the player can raid any expansion at his discretion without fear of real retribution. Hence the removal of the center moon and a blocking addition to disuade players from taking the center.
I did try to move the bases closer together, but it felt like that they were a to close to eachother then.
Hence I put those back a little. The map as it is now is how I would intend it.
So to your suggestions, I tried those out already, in a number of settings and possibilities, none felt right.

But thanks for your input and your thoughts.
