    Well, guys, I finally put a lot of effort done in finishing a 100-map list for my renewed tournament season ready to go. Some of the familiar maps have its layout changed (some slight but others substantial), but the majority of the new ones are also jaw-dropping gorgeous. They're all up to date to fit with 4K resolution screens. You should check it out at some point if you're only just looking at the various map choices I made. :3

    If there's ever going to be a chance for an Abyssal Fleet Event 3 by answering @Backlash's question whilst we're still sheltered here, I would say very likely, and it is all thanks to two major updates in a short span of time on Azgaar's Fantasy Map Generator that allows us to simulate battles of all kinds, define the year and era, better diplomacy, better map generation, and more. The only thing I have to do now is trying to set up a map that looks familiar enough to Kantai Collection, Azur Lane, Warship Girls, etc. Due to the new RNG factors in place, it may involve more than just exclusive sea and air battles, it might include something else, too.

    When I have it all setup and I don't know when, I'll rename it from Abyssal Fleet Event 2 to 3 and I'll teach my friend on how to use it correctly. No more relying on individual shipgirls when you can have whole fleets and air units shown on the map. It would be just as close to the actual game itself, almost. It would take place just right after the decisive battle of Midway, from the canonical American perspective that the US manage to seal off the early phase of Japanese victories, and will not spoil the details past it.

    However, because my planet is long dead, this would probably mean that the second-half of the recreated events surrounding the Pacific War Theatre will be non-canon on my end and would only serve to make my friend feeling a bit relieved.

    I learned a lot over the months and probably played a long enough time with NMS  that I'm confident enough to try the final difficulty level and perhaps the final achievement in the game solo and live the life of an honorbound pilot destined to give away one's life. I'll try to see if I can start in a random Vy'keen system, because somehow from the way I learn from the five languages, it kind of shares similarities once I gotten the hang of it within hours. I'll document everything I can, record all transactions and earnings, and map my movements using a paper, but I'll also keep myself under other people's radar trying to minimize the accidental visits of their planetary systems until just before the three late-game missions. If I can make it in one piece, I'll have the chance to craft the Remembrance orb and access to some of Telemon's work across glitched worlds.

    Travelers, the Anomaly Race (Can exchange appearance, do missions, do community research with the Space Anomaly, and in extremely rare cases arrange PvP fights) - Speaks the language of the user's current geographic region

    Korvax, the Convergence Consciousness Race (Was enslaved and almost exterminated by the First Gek Spawn, but in a desperate plea to survive, used Nanite Clusters to make them submit to the Atlas, they currently worship the Atlas without question with near total loyalty. Always willing to expand their knowledge and aid the Travelers in doing so, due to their advances in science, complex mathematics, and engineering) - Speaks somewhere close to that of some European languages and even Russian but with phonetic translation with its own mix, but the actual speaking is just robotic noises, sometimes gnarly or gurgling noises. When fighting against pirates in their systems, often they wish to end their suffering, trying to act like space versions of oni in showing them a world where there isn't life.

    Vy'keen, the Time-Honoured Defiant Race (Fighting a never-ending losing war with the Sentinels, originally the Aerons, who worships Hirk the Great, doesn't like Nal and his acolytes, wants to aid the Travelers according to their honorbound code despite calling out passerby Travelers of low prestige as "interlopers" and trying to make them look weak. A very small percentage of them will try to flee from their inevitable extermination for their slights, the name of their race sounds similar to the ancient Vikings, but the names of their fleets, ships, and systems sound close to that of Japan) -  Speaks in grunts, by shouting, groaning, and their famous word "Grah" is a universal word as to bellow, laugh heartily or incite. Research long enough into their language, and the player will come across a few tiny memories that they even know Yuudachi, youkai, their longing to return to their families as "wife" despite not having any females present at all, and a little ninja magic. When encountering pirates, they force the player to act honorably by encountering them in battle, and complying or bargaining them makes them feel dishonored, but in one instance, complying them thinks that they'll contact them later if a potential contract is made but it is just used as a vocal distraction

    Gek, the Once Disowned Empire that is now an Intergalactic Corporate Federation (They were the ones responsible formerly a dominion who used their early-age space technology to come out of the center of every galaxy and exterminate nearly all the Korvax, even destroyed their homeworld with a planetary-wide thermonuclear bomb. That was the ancient past, now thanks to the Atlas' desperate rescue operation in saving almost all Korvax, they're turned into PresentGek, forcing them to become happy with every passing individual with unwavering determination and refusing to reveal their hidden war crimes to anyone who dares doing so) - Speaks in memetic reptilian noises, it might resemble an integration of Western powers. It doesn't matter where the player goes, even among pirates, they'll try to convince the player thinking they're friendly so they can let the Traveler pass, otherwise they'll fight

    Atlas, the Almighty Omnipresent Deity of the Multiverse (It watches over everyone and acts like the artificial Creator despite what the Vy'keen, some Travelers, Nada and Polo thinks otherwise, it has no emotions whatsoever, only insisting that whoever is deemed chosen shall seek it out through its path quest and in the main storyline at key points stops the player traveling about for committing questionable acts. Gives those deemed worthy the power to create new systems and to travel to other galaxies while it lives) - Initially speaks in their own tongue but as the story progresses, it learns the localized language of the user, and in very rare instances whilst using Pulse Drive one can find an anomalous object in space representing as emissaries of the deity itself

    After much testing with the new Azgaar's update, the military numbers seem to be unrealistic but proportional to the size of the respective burgs they represent. When I hover over every regiment that was procedurally generated, it gave out names that represent the burg they come from, fleets don't have their own names, they just say the number and then "Fleet" but can be renamed. Also on the legend of such regiments and fleets, they form unrealistically way earlier, going as far back as the Warring States period using the era name that I inserted in the Options tab, so I just ignored it. I then used the 1939 census and shrunk only the most important nations' populations down to around 400 million, it rounded up to 401 million when looking at the "States" box on the very bottom. Again, it's not fully accurate because back when censuses had to be done manually, it became highly sketchy and prone to errors. The last thing I want to say about military units is that when I turned on "Military", I can see all states' units exactly, which means even if radar/sonar can't detect it from faraway, thanks to turning on this new option, this would mean that every player would see each others' units exactly, they don't have to warn their own forces upon spotting enemy units up close, and can freely move them around with just a simple click and drag literally anywhere.

    I was also unsure how am I going to share .MAP files to my friend every time I want to update it, let alone able to save it myself for later use and perhaps save it as .PNG/.JPEG so I can see what exactly I updated. Assuming I have the .MAP file somewhere on my PC but my friend doesn't have it, then how are we going to do turn-based battles if the next time we want to take a turn we lose that version of the map and only myself can still make changes, that would be very unfair to me. The map's seed I'm using is 949923021. Then, at the time of this writing, after figuring out a way to get around it by copying my map seed's URL, it goes straight to my clipboard, I then tried to use that URL to get that map seed, only to find that my favorite WWII map isn't there, the seed ID is intact, it uses whatever settings that I already put in as "default" to generate a generic version of Siam and losing all of the other changes I made which would've taken me half a week with breaks to do it. I then decided to try .SVG format, which then when I opened it, takes me to my favorite map, with everything all set up and in full screen. It has my own real name as the start of the file, but what is more important is that I can now try and see if I can embed an .SVG file to an .SVG uploader where everyone can see who made them. Unfortunately by the time I tried to put it there, it didn't show up my map but it did manage to get into the uploader, as a red X. Although .SVG kinda of used to being popular back in the day, it isn't recommended for security reasons. The last thing I would try is simply use the final option offered, the Storage one. It is then saved like a little cookie that I can then use later as long as I don't clear my browser cache, but still it only goes to my own browser's storage.

    I was only just a step away from being successful. Now I'm starting to feel unwittingly have to control all states' actions on my map unless I find a proper solution.

    Well, that is some good relief news, I gotta say. Anyway, my revamped Pacific Theatre Map is all done somewhere, it looks much nicer than your world maps that you did years back (now with units already automated and ready to go). It is not a 100% accurate map in terms of randomized culture-based burgs but still it is better than no names. :)

    Unfortunately, that is not how this world works, the world is meant to be called a reality arena in which while everything in life is playing out every second, everything is happening very fast, bad and good news travels faster than our fingertips, and every one of us has its own pattern to follow. The universe isn't a simulation, it is a one-way eternal trip to the infinite black void that will take eons to progress beyond us. Unless technology somehow catches up fast enough and not hindered by current events to be on the level close to that of a fantasy marvel, we are but a tiny speck of the human timeline that we can easily destroy ourselves almost immediately if we're not careful in handling our own lives. It is like "Outside", but we're already in it. We don't have displays on our eyelids and faces, we only have a single life, are mortal, and thus have to define our behavioral patterns to survive. Not having one, or going through a very bad one can lead to a very early, irreversible end, simple as that.

    People who do cancel culture should leave the net for being offended for things said/posted years ago. People change you wastes of life (to people who do cancel culture for that reason alone). People who are maps/pedos are okay to cancel. But views that changed through years should be left alone and if the things were posted when they were children (under 18) shouldn't be used against them, everyone is edgy at one point of their life especially in that age

    Haaah~, I'll hafta check 'em out after work! Or ideally before that, since I wanna watch some anime too.


    Regardless! This day will never come again, so let's both make the most of it, 'kay love? ✨
