Didn't Duke Nukem Forever have that release date? : /

Also, I'd advise you not to download NICE (no longer supported, and some other things).
Well, you can download it. It does have some issues, and the NICE starmap isn't updated anymore, but there are some interesting things to see that aren't present in the other versions. : )
For example?

P.S. Could someone please help me with the setup of NoctisMapper, the provided readme confused me... :/

EDIT:

"- unzip the package in any directory (must be in c:\noctis\data if you want to use the unmodified shortcut)
- put the file "starmap2.bin" in directory any directory
- in the installation directory, edit the configuration file "NoctisMapper.ini" to fit your needs (see details in this file)
- in a DOS prompt, type "java -jar c:\noctis\data\NoctisMapper.jar" (if c:\noctis\data was your installation directory), or in Windows double-click on the shortcut
- in order to see your first stars, load data (data menu), and check some star types

(for convenient use you may create your own shortcut with command "javaw -jar c:\your_directory\NoctisMapper.jar")"

These are the lines I do not understand...

The NoctisMapper is available somewhere on this site, isn't it? : )
You can find NoctisMapper on the companion programs page.

There's information here on how to update it to access the server showing other explorers locations.

NICE has some different kinds of environments and tools that aren't present in Noctis IV and NIVPlus, along with a bunch of things that could be classified as debug tools. It also has some new bugs, occasionally causing crashes, or making things appear incorrectly. The surfaces of planets don't match those in NIV/NIVPlus, so discoveries can't be shared between the two. It's still a curiosity that can be played around with, but the recommended versions using the 'official' starmap and guide are Noctis IV and Noctis IV Plus.

Another question, if I may...

Is there a way to select a certain planet from the system? For example, I'm in a system and there are 27 objects, from which 8 are planets. Right now I've been on 3 of them and named them. I visit them in numerological order, and I CAN'T find the 4th planet... Any useful tips?
written by 4616599 on Jun 07, 2010 11:41
Sure. Type in the planet number itself! Select local target, then type in 4 and hit enter. (also, use the slash key for moons, e.g. typing 8/3 would give the 8th moon of the 4th planet)

I've got something to add on to Cryo's post, so give me a moment to find something...

Okay, can't find where neuzd posted the latest stamap2, so here's a link to my copy of it;
http://dl.dropbox.com/u/900994/starmap2.BIN

Now, instructions for use

* Go to your noctis folder, and subsequently its data folder, and unzip your NM package there.
*Put the starmap2 I linked to above in your data folder.
*Just go to config settings, open it in Notepad or a similar program, edit the necessary details(username -in user section-, location of starmap2 -in basedir section-, and neuzd.org/noctis/mapper.php in the serverurl section) No DOS stuff needed, I think
*Launch NM, check all the boxes at right, go to the load menu, check both options, then load data. And you're done!

Did you try following the second link in my post, and scrolling down a bit, to where Neuzd posted the latest version? : P

While taking 4.6M by an ear; it's here: cd/zips/Neuzd/starmap2 (467 Kb)

It's always the latest version I generated, so keep an eye open for updates. They're not very frequent, but it's still a job I manage to do, sometimes.
I think I'm keeping all fundamental files in the zip directory (just remember that anynowhere's favorite file, inbox.zip, is never an archive).

Ouch! Okay, I didn't think of that neuzd!
(@Cryo I did follow the link, but thought that it was probably April's version :/ )
