Ya, I have StarForce, but IIRC those hexes are 1 light year each rather than 1 parsec, so yeah, some work to translate.

Near Space is a Cepheus Engine product (why I posted in this subforum) from Stellagama Games, available on DriveThruRPG for Pay-What-You-Want (meaning 99 cents if you're poor like me!). It presents a 2-D, parsec-hex map of space around our Solar System, 20x16 hexes, in four variants. So the conversion to 2-D and 1 parsec/hex is already done, for the area covered.

I'm just being slightly lazy and hoping that someone else has already done the work of making a Travellermap data file for it. If I have to make my own, I'll share it here; all of Near Space is stated to be Open Content per OGL.
