I previously posted this question in this forum a couple days ago but it looks like it got deleted for some reason.

I was looking through the Battle of Tukayyid planetary map that came with the sourcebook and was wondering how I'm supposed to interpret:

1. The numbered diamonds around the planet terrain diagram
2. The various numbers in the abstracted solar system to the side (with the P +6's and the N +0 and Z +0)

I looked through Interstellar/Strategic/Campaign Ops and couldn't find anything conclusive about this portion of the map but between all the rulebooks I'm sure I'm missing something.

Thanks in advance!

After a few months of asking around I found the answer on reddit.

The procedures for using the planetary map are located in battleforce 2 starting on page 71

Campaign operations and Interstellar ops focus on using the planet surface map, but both fail to deliver on the space portion, opting to abstract to the radar map.

The Z and the N reference the nadir and zenith points of the star. The Ps on the star map represent Lagrange points or Pirate Points for jumpships to potentially jump into at higher risk.

The diamonds around the planetary surface are orbital areas above the map in that sector.

Hopefully this detail returns to newer publications to limit this confusion, or alternatively, CGL just chooses to not publish products that they don't have current up to date rules for.
