Mass Effect Galaxy Map by Engorn Mass Effect Galaxy Map by Engorn
This is a unofficial map of the Milky Way as shown on the Mass Effect, Mass Effect 2 and Mass Effect 3 games. I think it's pretty accurate, but may contain errors.
Only the Citadel and Alliance symbols are official.

December 16, 2011 update: I've had to remade the entire map due a lost of all the content of my external Hard Drive, so I took the opportunity to remove the frontier which caused a little bit of controversy.

January 3, 2012 update: Added the Reapers at the low left corner. They are not in scale, of course. On another way, the wouldn't be seen.

March 17, 2012 update: Added the Mass Effect 3 clusters and nebulas. Reapers erased. They are not comming anymore, because they are here...

September 3, 2012 update: Added the Mass Effect 3: Leviathan systems.

Semtember 23, 2012 update: The symbol of the Terminus Systems has been changed to the Omega's symbol, as it is the Terminus System the facto capital. Some clusters and nebulas wrongly place on Terminus have been changed to the Attican Traverse. Also I added a symbol indicating where is the homeworld of the major species.

¿Crees que podrías hacer una versión de este mapa con los nombres en Español? He visto la otra versión que tienes en español pero no está tan completa.

You're missing out the vorcha homeworld, Heshtok. And the hanar, too. (I'm not sure if we the players have been told where the raoli are hiding, but it's certainly near an asari planet - or where the old, ruined drell homeworld used to lie) Pretty sure that's in a known location. And I'm sure weapons like the Graal Spike Thrower have a symbol of krogan government (possibly clan Urdnot) on them.

Otherwise, good work. But I don't see those sneaky sneaky Reapers...

Vorcha's homerworld it's not missing. Look again. It doesn't appear on the list, but it is on the map. Hanar, drell and other species are not shown because we don't know officially where are their homeworlds. This map is canon only. I've got another one for the fanon content.

This would be great if, you know... it would show up in zoomed view? Probably not your fault, but still annoying as hell. Know if there's any deviant art settings that might prohibit it from appearing?

Just an FYI, your Mass Effect galaxy map is being sold on Ebay as a print by a shop called "nataposter" for 12.95 USD. The title is "J1285 Mass Effect Galaxy Map Video Game 32x24 Print POSTER"

Wops!! I didn't realize it. It's a mistake. My first idea was to mark all the nebulas/clusters of the Systems Alliance, and to do the same with the other races. But it was too messy, so I decided only to show the homeworlds. Viper Nebula, somehow, scaped the purge... xD

Thank you for noticing it. ;)

It's funny how almost all species come from the same corner of the galaxy. :p

(Also could you make a version without the reapers? AND/OR Could you make this available as a print?)

:iconengorn:
Engorn Featured By Owner Oct 14, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Damn it! xD I activated the reapers layout to check one thing and then I forgot ton deactivate it. I'll change it soon.

And yes, it's curious that almost all the species come frome the same corner on the galaxy. In fact, it's something I've notice long time ago, thinking about the races of the game. The codex says that the Terminus Systems are the "union" of the non-Citadel races, or something like that, but if you look well, those races are only the vorcha. Asari, Drell, Elcor, Hanar, Humans, Krogan, Salarian, Turian and Volus are Citadel species. Batarian and quarian were once Citadel species, but they left or been expelled, and we cannot consider geth as a Terminus Systems species... So, were are all those species composing the Terminus Systems? xD

Nice. I used the map you made to make a map for the Strategy Game Sins of a Solar Empire. Or at least an older version of the map. Dam I have to update my game map for Leviathan.
Anyway great work. I can only imagine how long it took to make this.
