Overview Edit

In the deep regions of the DarkOrbit galaxy, we have managed to find various parts and pieces to create what we call an official space pilot Map guide, that will assist any player (old or new) in finding their way through the orbit. When the word map is used, it simply means the "area" which we fly our ship in. All areas are separated by numerical order depending on the company that owns that area or map. An example is the company MMO, whose home map is 1-1. In that area you will find a base that is capable of letting players trade ore, switch equipment, or even jump to another galaxy by creating a unique portal near the base.

To find out where each alien is found, please visit the Location of aliens page.

The Maps Edit

Any map may or may not have the following, depending on the map:

Below you can see the different sections of the maps broken up to better understand the start system:

Lowers Edit

X-1, X-2, X-3, X-4

A lower map is one of four maps that a company has that is usually a good starting area for new players since there are demilitarized zones and such.

For more information, please visit the Lowers page

Uppers Edit

X-5, X-6, X-7, X-8
An upper map is a section of the start system after passing through the PvP / battle map areas. These consist of much harder aliens to fight, as well as higher level requirements to even access the upper maps.

Battle maps Edit

4-1, 4-2, 4-3, 4-4
Battle maps

A battle map is where PvP (player vs player) is enforced by not having any demilitarized zones, making them more difficult for any new player to enter without being prepared.

4-5 Edit

Another extension to battle maps, 4-5 is not really fit for PvP, mainly because it have various Uber and Boss type aliens that are known to swarm and deal lots of damage to passing players.

Pirate maps Edit

5-1, 5-2, 5-3

The pirate maps are a new added section to the initial star system that contain Pirate type aliens and Palladium.
