Zones are areas that divide the Expanse.
- The Lacuna Expanse has its borders at -1500 and +1500 for x and y each
- Its inner size (where celestial bodies are located) goes from -1499 via 0 to +1499 what equals a size of 2999
- Zones follow a base grid of 12x12 squares within the actual Expanse what means that 250 units lie between the opposite borders but certain zones are twice as long or/and twice as high (see following map). There is a total of 121 zones.
- Since the central zone has its borders at -249 and +249, its adjacent zones begin at -250 and +250. Any other border is located at an additional whole-number multiple of 250
