Somewhat minor lore discrepancy

I don't know if this has been commented on, but the lore on the Red Sands map doesn't match the actual map. The map's lore says that it's a terraformed Callisto. But based on what you can see in orbit and on the surface, it's most definitely not Callisto. This map is more like Mars than anything. Callisto is a moon of Jupiter, yet Jupiter is nowhere in sight in orbit or on the surface. True, Callisto is the farthest of the four largest moons of Jupiter, but Jupiter is HUGE and still should be quite large when viewed from Callisto. Second, in orbit there are two large asteroids near this world. Callisto is not near any asteroid-like moons of Jupiter, and no asteroids orbit Callisto. These asteroids, however, are consistent with the two asteroid-like moons of Mars, Phobos and Deimos. Third, the map's name and its appearance indicate a reddish, sandy surface. While photos of Callisto do show some portions of the moon being slightly reddish, Mars fits this description far better since its surface is almost entirely covered by iron oxide (rust)-rich dust and rocks.

Kinda long astronomy lesson, but it seems like the Dreadnought team actually cares about lore somewhat, and this error undermines that a little.

Appreciate you pointing this out! I'm sure this is something that our narrative team is aware of, I say that because there's more and more lore to come. There's some refinement to be done, more info to be shared, and a view of the Dreadnought universe as a whole.


Having any issues and need some assistance? Our support team would be more than happy to help! You can reach out to them here!

Red Sands was once on Mars, then that got changed, but the maps background did not get an update.

If you scroll through the news you will even find a post about patch 1.3 Sands of Mars. =D
