I use the chart to see the colour of the planet (or group of planets) I'm aiming. Then I move left or right: the system plents move a (very) little differently from background stars. That's how I see them, then check the colour, and go.
Actually, all planets are on the ecliptic plane, for example Gaea is at 02-00-05, although this is an oversimplification, because the interval spanned by one such coordinate is too large (way larger... more
Re: How do you find planets? Webmaster,Sun Sep 6 05:48
Thanks. Oh, the main reason I think of the coords in that way is that everything in Damocles is pretty much flat. We learn that on flat 2D graph paper you have x & y coords. You have flat cities (X-Y ... more
Of course, in school you learn 2D Cartesian coordinates as X and Y... but then, when you plot a 2D graph on a screen, the Y coordinate is vertical. ;-) So, when you need an extra dimension, you use... more
