This overlays a grid over the galaxy map, to make communication in multiplayer games a little easier.

It was inspired by the big map in the War Room in the Series Babylon 5, I’ll post a overlay that looks more like the one from the series in a bit.

Edit: Updated for 2.2.*, old but unchanged version for those still on 2.1.* can be found here: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1586728968

Shoutouts to Dwaine who created the fantastic Immersive Galaxy Mod and the submod Astronomical Objects, Quadrant ( https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1445669234 ) and to Agamidae who simplified&fixed it in Quadrant_fixed ( https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1506078758 ), Agamidae was also so nice to help out with compatability between our two mods (so yes, you can run both at the same time to have rings AND hexes).


PS: I would like to make this able to swap the overlay programmaticly via mod-menu integration (so there can be more overlays in a MP sessions and players can select the ones they like best, if any). If anyone has a pointer for this, hit me up!

PPS: Smaller version for Tiny & Small galaxies: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1596934542
