While 6 player maps are - naturally for a hex-based game - common, it is always difficult to find or a somehow balanced map for odd numbers like 5 or 7. This is a try to fill the gap.
This file contains a 4-ring, balanced map for 7 players using all of the new system tiles from Shards of the Throne. Many systems are attached to wormholes / gravity rifts and very rich systems placed in the conflict areas (which are at equal distance between at least 2 players). Variant Gamma-Wormholes used.
Starting position 6 has more resources than the others. No trade goods should be given to any player. I used the scanned tiles from ti3wiki.org to create these maps.
