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:
- Quests to complete
- Ore or Boxes to collect
- Aliens to attack
- Galaxy gates or portals
- No demilitarized zones
Below you can see the different sections of the maps broken up to better understand the start system:
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
For more information, please visit the Uppers page
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.
For more information, please visit the Battle maps page
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.
For more information, please visit the 4-5 page
5-1, 5-2, 5-3
