Hey there! Loved the map, but there was one problem: within three minutes the entire map was corrupted by the Consortium. Could you do one where are all the planets but the starting ones have pirates? Or is it possible to tweak it even further and have all but a couple nearby planets full of pirates?
If you can tweak it very far, I would suggest giving the Rebels and the Empire a few nearby "vacant" planets, but surround the Consortium by pirate forces, and a bit tougher ones too.
Or whatever can stop the Consortium from corrupting the whole dang place, or at least stop them from advancing so quickly. That would be great!
