View Full Version : Sector map not showing unvisited sectors post win

Before winning a galaxy, if I accept a quest that is located in another sector, that sector appears on the Sector Map. This is very useful for estimating where the relevant starlane or wormhole will be located.

After winning a galaxy, any sectors that I have not visited are no longer shown on the Sector Map, even if they were previously shown, and even if I already have accepted (or newly accept) quests located in those sectors. Or at least, I think that's what is happening. So I have no idea which direction to travel in. :confused:

(Sometimes I like to complete quests after winning if I'm getting good xp or enjoying that galaxy. :cool:)

.....

Hmm, in the next galaxy it seems to be working fine. So maybe I am mistaken or there are more variables than just pre-win vs. post-win.

This is still happening. Here are a couple of screenshots to show what I mean.

I have a quest to kill Enforcer in a sector called Promirab.

But Promirab is not showing on the Sector Map. (I tried scrolling too - it's not out of the visible area.)

Earlier in this same game/galaxy, Promirab was appearing on the Sector Map. Now I have won the galaxy it no longer appears. :confused:

Maybe if you accept quests after winning, the quest location is not being updated on the Sector Map. Is anyone else noticing something like this happening?

Are the Lithosoid enemies? If so, a while back enemies stopped telling you quest locations.

Ah they may well have been enemies. Thanks Shadow, I didn't realise that was the case. That would explain why I notice it happening after I win, as by that time I usually have made a few enemies!

Does that also explain why Jump Gates are available for purchase early in the game, but later in the game they're not listed on the trade screen? Do races only offer to sell them to you when you're not at war?

(Maybe I gotta make more friends in the galaxy. :D)

That is correct. The races won't trade jump gate activations to you when they are at war with the Drox.

I told the Forums before about how funny it was to be able to buy Gate Activations from my Enemies, then use their Gates to more quickly get to them to blow them all to oblivion... funnily enough, soon after this, the next patch afterwards, (or the one after, one of the 2) my War Enemies suddenly realized how stupid it was taking my money to 'unlock their front door' to my invasion! :p

Thanks Shadow. Sorry I thought it might have been a bug. :o

Hehe maybe I'll just buy all the jump gates at the beginning. Then I can easily pay everyone a visit, whether they turn out to be friends or foes. :D

... Why didn't I ever think of that...? :eek:
