If you've got the latest nightly build of Oolite 1.81, you can set the title of the chart screen specifically according to which system is currently selected as your destination. So, e.g., if you select any of the systems near Tianve on chart 1, the screen title could change from "Galactic Chart 1" to "The Pulsar Worlds".

I've uploaded an OXZ to demonstrate this, which is available through the download manager under the title "Distant Realms" (because "Regional Chart Titles" sounded too bland). It adds the regions described on the wiki for charts 1 and 2. Before I continue to add more to it, I thought some discussion might be in order (lest great swathes of the galaxy become known as Wildeblood's Empire).

Are you using the names from the vector maps?

I copied from the region pages linked from here, not from the maps directly:

Whoever set about making the wiki pages seems to have given up after chart 2. :(

If you want a list of the system IDs covered by all the regions from the ClymAngus maps, have a look in the startUp method of Scripts/cargotyperegional.js in the New Cargoes OXP.

I've just noticed that in the Expansion Manager, the descriptions for Distant Realms and Galaxy Names are identical, even though they perform slightly different tasks..

As far as naming...
There's always the Rift Worlds in Galaxy Chart 7 as well as the "unreachables" in Galaxy Charts 3, 6, and 8 as well.

A feat of identification I'm still quite in awe of sir. I thought painting them was bloody annoying but you went and programmed them into an oxp. Formidable sir formidable.
