Dark Tech Map Tiles

Robot on a map tileDeep in the forest stands a giant dark stone Obelisk, sickly free glowing light shines from the cracks in the dark stone like surface of this ancient alien edifice. A single door automatically opens and permits the brave to enter, but none have returned from within the Obelisk. Do you dare to venture inside, and see what alien treasures await within?

The Dark Tech Map Tiles collection from Studio WyldFurr expands the science fiction theme of map tiles, designed to complement the Sci-fi Map Tiles set.

What is a Map Tile?

Each of our map tiles depict an area of terrain, such as the floor of a cave, an area of grass, or where the floor meets a wall. The map tiles are provided as ready-made art asset elements that can be pieced together on a digital canvas to form an adventure map that players can explore.

All Studio WyldFurr map tiles have a unique “look’n’feel” as each map tile is a combination of photographic source material, combined with hand drawn artwork. Rendered at a scale of three on screen pixels to each real world inch, resulting in 180 pixel squares to each 5ft game grid.

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, Clip Studio Paint, or Gimp. 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, you can watch Tailz building a map in Photoshop via the YouTube video displayed below. Plus we have a number of video clips on YouTube displaying maps being built with the range of Map Tiles from Studio WyldFurr.

Raw Image Files Art Assets Edition

This edition of the Dark Tech Map Tiles pack is designed for use by Game Masters who love building their own maps, and want access to a toolbox of ready-made artistic material rather than the hassle of designing their own material from scratch. The map tiles within this package were designed to act as a library of art assets that a Game Master could simply just drag-n-drop onto a canvas to form a map.

The package contains a wealth of raw image files in PNG file format. These image files form the building blocks which you can assemble into the form of a dungeon, fortress, monster lair, or whatever kind of adventure map structure you desire.

Simply start with a blank canvas inside the graphics editing program of your choice, for example: Photoshop, Clip Studio Paint, or Gimp. Then start composing the form of an adventure location by grabbing a map tile from the library, then plonk it onto the canvas right where you want it to go. Keep placing down map tiles and your adventure map will take form like a giant jigsaw puzzle.

Using map tiles permits very granular control over the form of your adventure map chambers and passageways, rather than relying on pre-constructed rooms which you cannot change. Once the structure of the map is in place, add the final touches by dressing your map with props and object tokens such as tables, chairs, statues, etc.

Tailz

"Hello friends, I am Tailz from Studio WyldFurr and I would like to thank-you for taking an interst in this collection of ready-made art assets. This set was designed to complement the Sci-fi Map Tiles set, but can easily be employed with any of the Map Tiles packs from the fantasy Dungeon Map Tiles collection. I hope you have as many hours of fun building dark and foreboding Alien structures with these map tiles as I have!"

- Tailz from Studio WyldFurr.

Format
Original electronic
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.
