What is the largest an Armada 2 map can be? And is there a way to endrun any limitations? I use alot of large maps because my station and planet scaling has been jacked up. Also I tend to want alot of space for alot of ships to mix it up in. So if anyone knows the upper limits to the maps and also if there is a way to circumvent them if there is a limit.

I'm not sure about the exact size numbers but pretty big, having learned this making my first file for upload in A2files several months back, the maximum size of the map is contrary to just how much load your graphics card can handle(anything beyond that and your game will start to lag).

Yea, if your system can handle it, go for it. The largest map I have is 80000x80000

What map is that Jetfreak? I'm a big fan of the large maps and would love to have a copy of it. The largest one I have is Alpha Quadrant which is 38400 x 38400.

I'm also looking for a map called "Battle for the Alpha Quadrant". I used to have it but lost it. If I remember correctly, it was a 6 player map at 50000 x 50000. Does anyone know where I can find that one?

Sorry man, my huge map might not be compatible with your personal a2 install. It has some tailor made stuff made to suit my a2.
