There are only 3 map modes! Small, medium and large.
I analysed the savegames and although every single sector is listed in sector.lst, botf only differentiates between the three standard map sizes.
The map size of a savegame is stored in galinfo as well as where the sector count is stored.
I tried to add / remove some, but it's only possible to change map sizes to one of the default ones.
So it's possible to change a small map to large or medium of a savegame and add the missing sectors, or the other way round, but having other sizes than the default ones isn't possible.
And there's only a very tiny chance to find out where the default sizes are stored in trek.exe or stbof.res I fear. :(
