Constellations of Verra

edited September 9 in Community Creations
because the map is mostly locked and we have a compass on top of the screen, i thought to have the night sky filled with constellations could add much more depth and possible achievements and elements to the game.
made 27 constellations with non-Latin names.
IF i can do it, my next project will be a solar system for verra
  • navigating the seas
  • choosing the sign of birth at character creation screen
  • adding more dynamic life to the night sky
  • possible lore and side quests
  • re did the entire constellations again, added otter and sage

Please note, I'm not an artist, im not a graphic designer or anything. just effort and love.


also if you find this post interesting please take a look at my other post :

    great idea ! as someone who is into amateur astronomy i do find realism important though. like they should not overlap, and we know Verra has a sun from APOC so they should change/shift based on the seasonal rotation of the earth around the sun and also around itselve. Verra also got a moon since there are waves (and wasnt there a moon in APOC too?) which should be visable.
    this post brings up so much questions because we alrdy know Vek's are into stargazing and observatories. no doubt it will be part of the lore...but how detailed would this system be? is Verra on a round earth like planet or is it more a fantasy floating platform? is this planet even in a solar system and if so; how many stars and moons are part of this solar system ? there are so many ways they could go with this.
    in gameplay-wise it would be cool having to search for clues or any other benefit from looking up in the sky. cant wait till we get more info on actual physics.
    suprising you didnt sneak a sandal in there btw :D

    we think alike ;)

    since im going to be making the solar system concept (fan made not official ofc unless they feed me info :'( :p )
    verra has multiple moons, we dont know how many
    and i would go as far as to say verra is tidally locked with its moons
    yes verra is a round planet but traveling globally is not confirmed or denied yet.
    yes it is in a solar system with few other planets it seems.
    one star. not clear on number but multiple moons are there in view.

    and yea i was actually about to add a sandal constellation but since they are working on aoc to be something realistic i thought its none of my business and they should add easter eggs on their accord when they feel like its ok...

    ill start working on project solar system in few days XD feel free to chat about it on discord with me o/

    Your Elven tree on the right made me think of the dreaded Windmill monster. :D
    I'm hoping the Vek really can read stars and celestial signs in some way. Perhaps as you advance, your skill improves.
