I've recently discovered Mutants & Masterminds, which has led me to discover one other thing: there's a serious lack of modern-day maps on the market.
After a hefty amount of research, I came to the conclusion that if I was to enjoy any tabletop super hero antics I'd just have to make my own maps. A daunting task for someone with no artistic skill and just a basic understanding of image editing software.
Now, here's the thing...picking up the skills you need to put together great-looking maps using premade assets like the ones you'll find in Brass Badger Workshop's kits is actually pretty easy. Be it with GIMP, Photoshop, or any other decent image editing software, it's all as simple as copying, pasting, and snapping things together using a grid.
Here's what you get in this pack, including the buildings pack you get as a bonus for buying this from DriveThruRPG:
3 Premade maps that you can study to get an idea of how things fit together or even as a starting point for your own stuff. Of course, you can just use these as they are if you'd like.
99 Tiles that can be used to build roads, sidewalks, foundations and so on. This includes detailed bits like crosswalks, gutters, and manhole covers for city/suburb streets and a huge variety of road patterns to make realistic, even complex highways.
- 72 Building tiles, some of which can be used on their own, and all of which can be snapped together to make more complex buildings.
The price point seems more than reasonable for such a large amount of content. All of the assets look great, are high enough resolution to build maps that hold up when printed or rendered at a large scale, and are really easy to use because they're already scaled properly relative to each other and just have to be snapped together--no resizing required.
The only warning I'd have is that making your own maps does take a bit of work and how efficient your workflow is will be a major factor in how much effort it takes to make good use of products like this one. However, the fact that these assets have been prepared properly does go a long way to make things easier for you.
This easily gets a 5/5 from me. You'll get as much mileage out of this as you're willing to, which can be quite a bit.
