Starfinder rpg site, with maps



  • Another bit of floor, some changes. Two pieces of broken cable, and some junk.

    These are easy to make, Annual Battle Tiles is the one I'm using for these.

    Two radioactive areas. One with a control console, one without. The control console is glowing blue due to likely Cherenkov radiation.

    I have 8 total so far. I'll be putting them up on my Starfinder site.

  • 9 done, and uploaded. They aren't in the navigation menus yet. I'm rewriting them.

    4 good places, 5 places with debris and radioactive bits.

  • 17 done, with and without grids. I am putting them into zip files this week so they are easier to download.

    An example:

    Looks like I have shadows on walls on one, but not the other, I'll fix that.

    My ISP speeds today are almost as fast as dial-up.

  • 14 bad areas, and 11 good areas. with and without grid. In 4 zip files.

  • I am working on more standard tiles. But they wont be done until next week. My Internet connection is like a yo-yo and a rapidly fluctuating tide happening at the same time.

  • crud on the floor. The floor metal bitmap fill matches the grid, so no grid.

    Needs some effects. Those edges are way too sharp.

    Not fractilized either.

    Edit for auto correct.

  • Hi Jim, been seeing this Starfinder post whenever I pop into the forums, I like what you're doing with the maps, and thought I would say hi. I'm a big fan of the Starfinder system and am GMing a couple games. If you have questions about how different parts of the system work, I'd be happy to chat with you about them. Are you working on using the Starfinder setting or are you doing your own homebrew?

    I'm mostly making maps for now.

    You might follow the link to my site for this rpg to see what I'm doing. Its an early post in this thread, page 1.

    Some parts of the game are more cinematic than I prefer in an rpg. Not sure what I might change, but classic Traveller comes to mind.

    Oh. And 10000 posts badge a couple days ago.

  • A bit of fractilization and an edge fade.

  • Ice walls and a block.

    I wanted to make some plain ones, so referees could add things to them.

  • CA70 High Space deck plans in case you are wondering where I'm getting these bitmap fills from.

    A digital floor room and walls. Plug in your cyber brain. It shouldn't hurt. The floor is not insulated.

    I have done 50 floor tiles as of Monday night. Nothing new added to my site though.

  • I have now uploaded 6 zip files to my site. 84 floor tiles, 14 in each zip.

    I apologize as I said elsewhere that I wouldn't reupload any zip, I would make new ones. But, the 'good' areas had only 11 floor tiles in them. They now have 14 in each zip.

    Working on 'generic', more 'good' and some digital and generic areas. Haven't done storerooms yet, thse are on the way.

    This is a total of 22.8 megabytes of jpg floor tiles.

  • Oh, forgot to mention my internet speed is still crawling. So no graphics.

    Here is a sub-floor office and waiting room. Now why would a sub-floor need an office ? Oh ! Put the blaster away ! I'm leaving !

    And this one has snacks while you wait for, whatever for you are waiting.

  • Is that background supposed to be dirt? It looks a bit green (like grass) to me.
  • Rust and mold, I thought.

  • This one is bad. A puddle of water next to a computer station.

  • I'd prefer horizontal floorboards myself but that is a matter of taste.  ;) Actually for an SF floorplan I'd use some sort of tiles. There are many options here.
  • These are sub floors for an orbiting city that has replaced Earth. Odd things in this game. All planets are inhabited. If I remember correctly, Mercury has undead robots...

  • "Ah yes, I remember wood. They used to get it from … tahrees?"
  • Yeah, 300 year gap in everyone's memory. Earth is now an orbiting city, if I remember correctly, around three thousand kilometers across. With a 5 pointed star metal structure as part of it. The center is a huge clear dome.

    I found this in a web search, its similar to what is in the books. There are apparently hundreds of sub-floors. I'm not making that many of these floor tiles.

  • Lots of room for just about anything!
  • Definately. And I didn't know, but it might have been mentioned in the text, about that spike on the bottom.

    Oh, one sf story I read years ago had artificial wood floors. If a person was rich, they could get an actual wood room brought out to the asteroid belt from Earth.

    Edit. Fixed a typo.

    I worked out five kinds of wood for a futuristic setting where it might be considered a rare commodity.
    1. Faux Wood - basically plastic colored and textured like wood. The cheapest and most common kind.
    2. Crop Wood - a genetically engineered plant grown in hot house conditions (sometimes hydroponically on space stations). Homogeneous in texture without processing to create a false grain. Genetically branded by the developer and can be traced. More expensive than faux wood but still relatively common.
    3. Tuff (TF) Wood - genetically engineered trees used in terraforming to establish stable ecosystems. Illegal to harvest until the biosphere is firmly established and can survive without artificial assistance and then only with a special license. Possession of unlicensed tuff wood (identified by its genetic fingerprint) is a serious crime. 
    4. Nat(ural) Wood - trees grown from registered seedlings with little or no genetic engineering and planted after terraforming is complete. Very expensive and regarded as a luxury item. Transport of seedlings or wood requires extensive documentation.
    5. Col(ony) Wood - every Terran colony has at least one tree imported directly from Earth and is considered part of the colony's historical legacy. Only fallen branches may harvested and usually become precious artifacts. Cutting a colony tree is considered a capital crime on almost every world but there are few convictions since the perpetrator is usually lynched from the tree they cut. The death of a colony tree is considered a very bad omen.
