6x6 Starship Tile Sampler: Cargo Lifter Micro Freighter


Compact & Worn Starship Deck Plans  Logo StampIn preparation for the release of the Compact & Worn Starship Deck Plans 6×6 Tiles (PDF and pre-print tiles) [Edit: now available click here], we are providing this free sampler PDF which contains a starship tile designed for use with 25-27mm figures using the 1inch=5ft scale, plus a “hangar floor” tile and cargo crates.

All of the art is hand drawn (mostly pen and paper) with colour added using software.

Contents (3 pages)


  1. Cargo Lifter Micro Freighter - interior of a spacecraft - printable 6x6 inch tile.  An ideal spacecraft for PCs to escape in.  Displayed against the hangar floor pattern, the starship can be trimmed to be placed on any background.
  2. Hangar Tile - metal/concrete theme generic tile, which can be trimmed into room and corridor shapes as well as being a repeatable tile for create large areas - a landing pads in a spaceport, or a large hangar in a spacestation.
  3. Cargo pods/crates (standard issue 2:1B Cargo Pods).  These crates can be cut up and used as scenery or placed in the cargo clamp of the CLM Freighter.  The cargo pods can also double as docking corridors.
The PDF files are in both A4 and US-Letter formats

The full product,  Compact & Worn Starship Deck Plans 6×6 Tiles, will contain this design and 11 other 6×6 inch starship designs with a choice of backgrounds, in colour and black/white line art.  We are also working on a guide with descriptions for the starships, as if sold by second hand dealers.  It will be available as printable PDFs and as pre-printed tiles through the DTRPG/RPGNow sites.

The inspiration behind this set is based on the sci-fi rpg referee’s need to have a play area which fits within the space of the tabletop, perhaps for a dynamic chase and fire-fight, through a space station or space port, for example.  These are small craft which can dock inside of larger vehicles.   They will be ideal in representing spacecraft which player’s can steal or purchase.  Most are battered and "previously used".  In games where interstellar craft only 30 ft across are unacceptably small, they might still be of use as “ship’s boats”, shuttles or air-vehicles.

The 3 page sampler PDF file is just over 3MB.  We recommend printing to paper, photo-paper or card from a home desktop printer; trimming with scissors; perhaps then mounting the tiles on a second layer of card to prevent curling.

Product Information
File Size:

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.
