Umm, im not sure if I get what you're meaning, so I'll just try to go through it step by step, do point out to me were I'm wrong.

The largest sphere is Tryuespace. You travel on the inside of this sphere, but only on the actual sphere, like running around on the inside of the globe. you can't fall into the middle, you stay on the surface all the time.

The smaller sphere inside the bigger one is hyperspace. Again, you can only run on the inside of it, the area so tto speak. Now, since the the larger sphere has a larger radius and therefore a larger area, going from A to B there would require to travel further than going from A' to B' on the smaller sphere (A' and B* being the corresponding spots where you can fall down or go up) Also keep in mind that "jumping" into hyperspace requires no travel whatsoever, so you're only travelling the distance on either the smaller inner sphere or the larger outer sphere.

Regarding quasispace I can see your point. Perhaps, inside of Quasispace, you can move in 3D thus allowing you to "float" to any hole you want. Make Quasispace small enough, and It'll work....

But getting from one sphere to another is instantenous, seeing as the "3D" map is just another way of painting it as well. I mean, you don't fly your flagship upwards to go into hyperspace in sc2 either, or drive it downwards to get to the system, even though we clearly see that there's a hole there, you just fall down, and tadaa, your in the system. So to get from one sphere to another, all you have to do is activate your hyperspace engnes, or enter a gravity well, and your there. Thin kof it not as distance, but an energy difference like between different electrons. apply more energy, and suddenly your there!

Anyway, it's just a nice way of simulating.. I think it'd look nice though Smiley
