Sci-fi Map Tiles Sample Art

Do you enjoy building science fiction space stations? Or the outpost of a space traveling bunch of aliens? The Sci-fi Map Tiles pack is aimed at giving Game Masters a tool kit with which to build hi-tech fantasy environments.

This map tiles set has been designed to expand your map building tool kit with a range of Map Tiles depicting a fantasy science fiction atmosphere. Use the map tiles in the Sci-fi Map Tiles package to build a super corporations high tech lab, a space station or the insides of a space ship.

This map tile pack provides you with a wealth of map tiles that all look like they belong together with the same artistic "look and feel" to them. Plus the tile design means you can assemble the tiles to build a dungeon map of almost any complexity. While on it's own this map pack provides all you need to build a sci-fi complex for your players to explore, your creations can be further populated with objects from our Furniture Packs, or NPC's and Monsters from packs such as our Modern Day Adventurers token pack.

What is a Map Tile?

A map tile, in the context of this set, is square of artwork depicting a specific 5ft by 5ft area of terrain. Such as the floor of a laboratory, an area of grass, or where the floor meets a wall. In order for a Game Master to build an adventure map for players to explore, map tiles are placed onto the digital canvas one by one until the desired terrain is constructed. Be that terrain a wilderness area, a secret lab, or space station.

Each map tile is a combination of hand drawn artwork and photographic source material that gives us the unique style of all Studio WyldFurr Map tiles. All of the tiles have been rendered from a birds eye view of the landscape, with shadowing used to give the illusion of depth.

How to use the Map Tiles?

The map tiles have been made as a kind of ready made art pack that you can simply just drag’n’drop onto a digital art canvas to build a map. To do this all you need is a graphics editing program such as Photoshop, Gimp, or another Map Making program that permit you to use pre-created tiles to build maps. We recommend using Gimp, it is free and is a very powerful program for this task. If you are not sure about what to do, we have a tutorial about building your own maps, which we have also added to the products zip file as a tutorial PDF.

Sample: How to build

Walls Separate from Floors

With our Dungeon Map Tiles III package we started to separate the walls from the floor tiles. We have found this gives us more flexibility with map building as we can combine different walls with different types of floor tiles to create different effects. This pack continues this style of map tile, with two different styles of floor tile and a main style of science fiction wall tiles.

Map Tile Scale

The Studio WyldFurr range of digital role-playing tokens and map tiles all use a standard scale of 1 inch to 3 pixels, for a standard D20Modern or D20Future (or Dungeons and Dragons) character square of 180 pixels. Thus each map tile is a depiction of a 5ft square of terrain. But we have also included smaller 50 pixel square map tiles for those of us who use the smaller 50 pixel square size.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
