Underwater Mining Station


Mining Station HPT-3B A.K.A. "Hephaestus Station"

The Hephaestus Station is located on the second moon of gas giant HPT-3. The moon is mostly covered by highly toxic water solution and it's volcanically highly active. There are numerous underwater volcanoes under the moon's vast ocean and around those regions highly valuable mineral can be harvested. 

The station has three drone control units for operating the ore harvesters. Other machinery is mostly automated or controlled from the observation center. 

There is a single air lock that is used by the station's personnel to dock the submarine that is used to transport people and supplies between the station and a huge shuttle platform floating above the station on the ocean's surface. 

This map is a 2433px x 3267px map with four different versions in a single zip archive.

Why are all secret doors on the map?

This map, like most of my black and white maps are made to be used primarily as (printed) GM maps and not originally designed for VTT use.

Also,, "secret doors" on this and other sci-fi maps are more meant as service hatches or such and not as hidden doors.

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.
