Antiliae => Antliae
I'm 90% certain that it should actually be "Antilae" – I suspect the wiki itself is wrong here.

No, it's Antliae. Checked in UQM Smiley

...Okay, that's odd. I'd be inclined to say UQM is also wrong, but I looked it up; Wikipedia was unhelpful (both spellings appeared), but Wiktionary revealed that you are, in fact, correct.

There might be more, but those were what I could find at the moment. Smiley

Hah, you know, I was certain it was Microscopii, too, but the wiki said Microscopi.
Fixed that on the wiki now. Smiley

Microscopium is the name of the constellation, Alpha Microscopii is the brightest star in the Microscopium constellation.
In Latin, microscopii is genitive case for microscopium.

Hey guys, its been a little while since I've posted a new iteration of the map... You can view it here: http://www.speakeasy.org/~schmerge/files/uqm.png.

This version doesn't contain any of the spelling corrections that y'all have been so kind to find for me (or some that I've found myself), but it *does* look quite a bit more like the original SC2 map.

Since I've come this far in reproducing the original map, I think I *am* going to try to make a faithful reproduction of the original map.

Here's a list of things I think that I still need to do:

* Move some of the greek letter designations around
* Change the style of the spheres of influence
* Fill the bottom of the map with the original map description (I'm a bit hesitant to do this for copyright reasons)
* Touch up the Giants & Super-Giants to have a white core
* I would *really* like to find a nicer looking 'The Ur-Quan Masters' label
* Add some white noise in the background

Again, any feedback you have will be appreciated. Please post any suggestions you have.

*Also*... If any of you have the time or desire to create a better UQM logo, I'd love to slap it on the map. I've made a couple of attempts at creating my own, but have not been happy with them... I'm thinking something kind of reminiscent of the SC2 logo on the original poster.

Thanks again for the feedback.
