What galaxy size/type do people prefer?

Curious on this for a mod I may or may not release.

I prefer medium just as you do it looks like lamme,
the size allows for a greater variety yet you have a large amount of tactics in the conquest.

It is tough to play a large universe without a savegame button! Alot of time.

I a large galaxy.

The larger, the better.

Well, not too sure how that would work with this game though, but generally, the grander, the better.

well large is fine in all, but as u cant save it, its almost impossile to conqour the entire galaxy. Thts y i think small galaxys are good for the demo

I prefer small because I suck at managing too many things at once. But when the real thing comes out I might maintain a large galaxy game.

I voted small and open, for purposes of the demo, anyway. as mentioned by others, it sucks to try and play a large game without a save and plenty of opportunity for crashes. besides, all the battle maps are the same, so there isn't much variety to a large map anyway.

Agreed. My current demo has the full 43 planets + a few of my own creation and the only realistic way to play a game lasting under 5 hours is to jump at and surround the enemy when the game first starts, and there's no fun to that when the enemy decides to just build up where they are :/

EDIT: And don't get me started on containing the pirates, hah!

I like the large since it feels more like the real Star Wars universe.

I would love a large map but without save....I can wait till the game is released. Not to mention all the ground combat is the same map.
