    Jalan is an Empire loosely based on Midevil Japan.

    Here is a typical downport, so far. 1000 pixels wide of a 1400 pixel map. No effects.

    That's neat! Doesn't look like it needs much in the way of effects, maybe just something to make the rivers look a bit watercolory?
    The vertical text is a nice touch.

    That annual has effects that do that. But since my Win 10 computer is more a cheap laptop that looks like a desktop, I have to leave the effects off until last.

    Definately needs more detail, like forests, roads, etc.

    Annual 110, Empire of the Sun.

    i have been thinking of tossing in a few things like Monks temples and Samurai quarters. This empire isn't all futuristic.

    I am intrigued as to how such a society where you blend spaceships with medieval life would work. It sounds like a very interesting culture clash here.

    I have GURPS Classic Japan and GURPS Classic Imperial Rome books in pdf.

    Jalan will be Classic Japan with Traveller Classic and The Empire is Imperial Rome with Traveller Classic. I have the CT books to.

    Most 'slaves' in both are robots. Instead of gladiatorial races in The Empire, it will be Car Wars.

    I read many years ago a story about knights in armor who took over a starship that landed on their basically 1200s AD planet. Some of it seemed off to me, but it might work.

    The real problem will be the Insectoid systems.

    Rumor has it that the Orkin Army is very effective against insectoid systems.  ;)

    Here we go, with effects and some additional labels.

    I don't think I can add much more without removing the generic usage. 1,000 pixels reduced from 1,400 pixels.
