Mega Station X – Core Space Station is an ultra-massive 340 x 340 grid map comprised of 100 34 x34 unique geomorphic interlocking maps (each section can be rotated 90-degrees in any direction as well as inverted to link directly to any other map in the series).

To scale, using all 100 maps in a 10 x 10 array, Mega Station X creates an incredibly huge 2,890,000 square-foot space station map. Over ¾ of square kilometer consisting of over 3,500 individual rooms and hundreds of miles of networked corridors.

This product contains both High-Resolution (5,100 x 5,100 px 600 dpi] and VTT-Ready (1,800 x 1,800 px @ 300 dpi) versions of all 100 maps. Can be used to make multiple smaller maps or virtually endless combinations of massive maps. Corner and edge-cap maps also included.

Below is a 6,000 x 6,000 px “thumbnail” preview of a ulatra-massive map configuration utilizing all 100 unique maps (click here or on the image to enlarge). See also the preview video for examples and a demonstration of the truly gigantic scale of this themed collection of VTT maps.

I know it’s short notice for the sale but - can these be printed on 8.5”x11” paper at home and have a 1” grid? Or do I need to use a print shop and have them printed on a larger paper size?

For some reason the number of comments listed in the details on this title did not show up until 04/26, so I just now saw this. You could print them and splice them together, but each of the 100 maps is 34 x 34 1" grid, so to print that on 8.5x11" paper (with 0.5" printer margins) you'd need 20 pages to fit one map with a bit of trim (or 2,000 printed pages to do the entire set of maps) to scale for minis. If I were going to print, I'd shoot for 34x34 custom print of the individual map sections I wanted to use.

Just a note, the enlarge functions aren't working either on the map or the seperate link, so its hard to get a sense what the tiles are like.

Looks like DTRPG integrated some HTML parsing to prevent links to external sites. Unfortunately, that means it also captures links to external images. I'll ponder on a way to more effectively demonstrate the size of the set. The video works well, but it was much more convenient to be able to click on the thumbnail and load the set view at 10%, which was still a *massive* graphic. Thanks for pointing it out. At the very least I'll hop in later this week and remove the "click here" verbiage.

Fantasic surprise when I found this.

Just one suggestion: I notice that each quarter section per geomorphic tile have their own separated sections with no doors, this forces occupants to head to the main corridor, then travel to the tile midpoint where they can turn left/right, travel further down the main corridor, before entering the same quarter section.

I would knock out some walls to allow a more logical flow for crew. Saying that, however, there would be sections that do have this limitimg structure, such as residential sectors.

You have clearly worked hard in producing this product, 100 distinct geomorphs takes a lot of effort to create. Pricing is also very reasonable.

I look forward to acquiring this, and your other similar products.

Cheers.

I just had another indepth look, and I feel I have poorly described my suggestion. The layout of the geomorphs is less a natural growth structure and more an artificial maze structure. I personally struggle understanding why community focused beings would produce a maze-based living/working environment.

I don't know, maybe I am being too anal. 8-)

Thanks, glad you are enjoying the maps!

I do understand what you're saying, but in counter, humans tend to build magnificently complex, convoluted, mazelike locales often when you place them with a dense population in an environment with limited resources. They tend to sprawl out, conserving and utilizing compact "made-to-purpose" footprints naturally over time. Some really great examples of this behavior are Kowloon city or the cities of the Cyclades. I make a lot of more "open" sci-fi maps, but the idea behind the "megastation" series was intentionally geared more towards the idea of a huge space station complex that has expanded over time, maybe even generations. In my mind I see the various themes being cleverly constructed out of limited building supplies such as used/once-damaged cargo containers, derelict ships, discarded space junk, etc. I did try to add several potential "layout themes" to the mix : some I felt were more suited to be marketplaces,...See more

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.
