    This isn't a map, but it shows a bit of Sera. Taken from a Hammer of Dawn Sattelite.

    Thanks a bunch, Ace.

    I'll take all I can get when it comes to this thread and I'm glad to see you were eager to participate. (Perhaps you could get someone with good eyes who isn't color blind like me to do a outline of the continent/countries in red or blue, so we can distinguish).

    I'm not sure where this region is... I can't find anything we've read about or seen in any of the games, movies, or comics.

    I couldn't find it either. Then again, that's only part of Sera, so Jacinto is most likely in another region.

    Don't remind me... I do hope that we find more people who have maps. I noticed that one of the collectibles has a map behind it on the foreground... but you can't get to it because of the stuff in the closer part of the picture.

    It's the collectible you find back at Jacinto when your defending it for the last time (it's Hoffman's datapad? Or I think it's a King Raven pilot's datapad. Can't remember...

    Nice. Sera sort of looks like a dark Neptune.

    You won't find any official maps - as in maps with names and whatnot that have been used in the game... Well, not Starwars based maps that were used in the game.
    I'll check in every now and again but for the most part, I won't be as active as I was previously. It really was the Gears + people that got me posting on here in the first place. Unless Epic release an awesome game or something. I'm leaving this message because I'm obviously a very, very important person.

    Maps by Epic

    Look for them in there - not really official, but hey, they're the closest thing to real maps done by Epic.

    As Skorge failed to properly explain...

    The map itself may or may not be official, but the place names are all placeholders. It's an easter egg; that's the map that was on the table in the briefing room at the end of Gears 2, where Hoffman joins you (I think?). They just had somebody do a quick map, and add place names; didn't have any official ones, so they just came up with Star Wars stuff.

    Bespin - Bespina
    Wooker - Wookie
    Wattosburg - Watto
    Hothica - Hoth
    Gulf of George - obvious one, isn't it?

    The one labelled "Wuhr" has three Bespin's in it, plus a Kamina (Kamino).

    The map itself is probably somewhat official, but only in that it's all contiguous landmasses (the book describes Sera as such) and it was created by an Epic employee.
    I came up with the Bag 'N Tag idea. No really, check the date. (proof)

    ^But as a real source of information it is not. It was simply a placeholder, used to give the illusion of a real map instead of taking the time to plan out a full fledged one.

    Chris, who created these maps, is a big Star Wars fan.

    There are no real maps... yet.

They just had somebody do a quick map, and add place names; didn't have any official ones, so they just came up with Star Wars stuff.

    Bespin - Bespina
    Wooker - Wookie
    Wattosburg - Watto
    Hothica - Hoth
    Gulf of George - obvious one, isn't it?

    The one labelled "Wuhr" has three Bespin's in it, plus a Kamina (Kamino).

    The map itself is probably somewhat official, but only in that it's all contiguous landmasses (the book describes Sera as such) and it was created by an Epic employee.
    Yes. Yes I did.

    So did Skorge, about a year ago.
    I came up with the Bag 'N Tag idea. No really, check the date. (proof)
