This Starfield Fan, armed with only shared gameplay footage and pre-release public information, embarked on an ambitious quest to recreate the galaxy’s map. Using 3D programs and pixel tracking, this intrepid fan tracked the movement of stars during a mere 6-second video clip from the game’s early reveal. Their determination and meticulous work paid off, as they managed to accurately reconstruct the 3D positions of the stars.

The process involved identifying real stars like Sol, Alpha Centauri, and Porrima, confirming that Starfield’s world is based within our Milky Way. The rest of the unidentified systems were identified using databases of known stars, and their positions were optimized to minimize errors. Even more intriguing, additional video footage unveiled the names of more stars, further refining the reconstructed map and providing a sneak peek into what players can expect in the game.

Commenting on the news, the gaming community is amused and impressed by the fan’s ingenuity. Some joke that this player deserves an honorary degree in astrophysics for their meticulous work, while others playfully speculate whether Bethesda might want to consider hiring them as a cartographer for future game development.
