Modern Day Map Tiles

Tangle with corporate security guards, or rumble in the urban jungle in a street brawl with a criminal gang! The Modern Day Map Tiles set of role-playing map tiles expands our origional Dungeon Map Tiles set with Modern Day Urban Map Tiles. Now you can build street scenes, shops, urban houses, and industrial workshops.

Raw Image Files Art Assets Edition

Modern Day Map Tile Sample ArtThis edition of the Modern Day 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 library of art assets that a Dungeon Master could simply just drag-n-drop onto a canvas to form a map.

The package contains a wealth of raw image files in JPG and 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, 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 dungeon 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.

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 an office, an area of street sidewalk, 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 urban setting is constructed. Be that terrain an area of street, a Cafe, an office, or secret corporate bunker.

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 deapth.

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 Dungeons and Dragons character square of 180 pixels. Thus each map tile is a depiction of a five foot square area 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.

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 will 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 is included in the zip file.

Expands on the Dungeon Map Tiles Set

This set of map tiles was designed from the beginning to expand on the range of map tiles found in our Dungeon Map Tiles set (plus the Dungeon Map Tiles II Set, and Cave Map Tiles Set). Now you don't need the other map tiles sets to use the Modern Day Map Tiles set, but we recommend getting both so your players can explore an urban enviroment or an ancient dungeon!

All of the grass tiles interlink with the grass tiles from the origional Dungeon Map Tiles set.

Tailz

"This is the first modern themed set of map tiles I designed, in the future I would like to make some more industrial themed map tiles and maybe even some military bunker style map tiles. Thank-you for taking the time to review this product. It is support from people like you that enables me to continue bring you such products."

IMPORTANT: This pack of art assets is intended for use creating maps for employment on the virtual role-playing tabletop. In apps such as Fantasy Grounds, Roll20, Battlegrounds, or d20Pro. This package is not a stand alone game, but a gaming aid for designing role-playing maps for personal use only.

Found a neat little way to make this awesome pack even awesomer. You may find that the concrete/carpet floors get a little samey after a while. Well, have no fear. It's easy to make your own by resizing an appropriate seamless texture to 180x180. Walls can be easily added around it by using the External walls/Plaster Upper Level or External walls/Brick Upper Level sets, whose shadows have a gradient transparency, making them simple to overlay on top of custom floor textures.

Great work, just about to leave a glowing review. My version of Photoshop (CS2) seems to want to open the tiles as a separate image, which then has to be cut-and-pasted into the template, but other than that, it's all good.

Older versions of Photoshop might not have the "place linked..." or "Place Embedded..." functionality. What I do is drag'n'drop images from a File Explorer window into the open map image I am building. In my version of Photoshop they are placed as a "linked" image. But older versions should place them as a separate layer.

Or you could just grab GIMP as it places dragged images as new layers. But whatever method works best for you.

Hello! It says there is a Sample Sheet to download so I can see all the tiles. However, I do not see where to download it from. Any ideas? Thank you.

You caught me in the middle of making the sample sheet preview PDF. Clicking on the PDF icon should load the sample sheet preview now. I'm also making a few more preview images too. :)

:) Are there roads with white/yellow lines in the middle? Mainly for a downtown map. Thanks!

The roads don't have stripes down the middle because that is where the split between tiles is. But what I have included in the last update are some token stripes you can place on the roads when map building.

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.
