View Full Version : I need star wars ships to use in maps!

Hi everyone. I just began posting here and I'm looking forward to exchanging tips and experience with you guys. Could someone tell me where to find Star Wars ships to use for maps? RPG Mapshare has only the X-wings, but I'd like to have more variety. Thanks. Looking forward to hearing from y'all!

Welcome to the forum. I don't have a link for you, just a suggestion: I have seen, in the past, free 3D models of Star Wars ships around the web. I'd find some of those and a free or trial-version rendering app (if you don't have one) and just do some top-down shots of them for your maps. Many renderers will let you do a render with a mask so you get just the object you want. If you can't find another app I suggest trying trueSpace 7.x, available now free from Microsoft. I think it renders to PSD format with layers.

Hope this helps!

Are you looking for ships to put on a map as an object to block movement or line-of-sight? Or are you looking for the internal layout of a ship?

For ships as objects:

The Wizards of the Coast forums have other starships in one of their custom maps threads (http://community.wizards.com/go/thread/view/75862/19481850/Maps_and_Elements).

The Holocron (http://the-holocron.com/index.php?option=com_remository&Itemid=36&func=select&id=2) has a set of 101 Map-Making Objects which I think include X-Wings and TIE fighters. There is also a download there for the Falcon and Slave I.

The SWMiniatures (http://www.swminiatures.com/tags/downloads/tiles/) resources page has 2D tiles of several things - gunships, speeder bikes, A-wing, B-wing, etc.

If you are looking for the internal layout of starships, the Holocron has the Falcon. I've done a Barloz Medium Freighter (http://www.cartographersguild.com/showthread.php?t=3614) for my SWRPG campaign. Several others have done internal layouts to non-Star Wars ships (but could be used for Star Wars). I have many of the Star Wars sourcebooks (more West End Games than Wizards of the Coast). If you are interested in a ship in particular you can PM me and we can see if there is a layout you can use from one of the sourcebooks.
