    Wip Class A Starship Repair Center

    Here's the Class A Starship Repair Center, though I might takeout that main bulkhead door to the south, allowing for larger craft to be parked here for repairs (though I might leave it, and consider this a rear door, that can enclose smaller starships or rise to allow larger ships in the "fore bay".

    Otherwise I thought this Tile turned out pretty nice - or even better than the first two, IMO!

    I would have placed a starship here getting overhauled, however, I don't know the tech-level, starship class of ships that belong in this particular setting. I might find something to place here, anyway.

    Now to sleep, tomorrow a search...

    PS: perhaps I could create a Xeno-Bio Lab and place some Giger-ish stuff in there - egg, Giger box and a Xenomorph in stasis..!

    What is this thing? I mean, it serves no useful purpose for there to be a bunch of chompy, crushy things in the middle of a hallway. No, I mean we shouldn't have to do this, it makes no logical sense, why is it here?

    Bevel adjustments allow for square, round or chamfered corners and tighter adjustments for width. Bevel shadows are adjustable as well, noting contrast, angle and elevation of the sun.

    Ah ok, Drawplus isn't that sophisticated.

    Wip Not sure what's causing that...

    RobA, not sure what's causing that - when I zoom into Xara closeup, it has that same crummy anti-aliasing going on there too.

    Probably the JPG texture of the grating on that thing is the cause - shrunk down too much and rotated at angle, giving the jaggies...

    Anyway, I resaved that and am uploading again (but still think it has problems.) And uploading two more tiles - habitation tiles: one for working colonists quarters and one for colonial officers quarters. There is a communal shower/restroom used by the crew members.

    Maybe I'll redo the crew quarters and make one of the four rooms into the communal shower...

    Much coolness. I'll have plenty of home game use for these!

    Wip Next two tiles...

    I created a duplicate of the Crew Quarters tile, with the addition of a communal shower/restroom. I figure GMs would print 2 or 3 normal Crew Quarters tiles for every one of this tile.

    Second tile is RobA's "whoosh whoosh giant fan" for a maintenance tunnel. Note the endless drop at the center of the intersection, with a ladder going down, and two "Jeffrys Tubes" or verticle ladder access tunnels. Vents in each main corridor enhance as well as the piping both verticle and running in line with the corridor.

    GP

    PS: when I'm complete with all tiles, I'll post a sample Planetary Colony tile map setup, to show these in action and relatively complete placement.

    Wip Next two tiles...

    OK, the next two tiles...

    First one is a duplicate of the "Big Science" Lab tile, with the counter-rotating rings removed and replaced with a giant 3-eyed, insectoid-like, Xenomorphic lifeform kept alive with "Giger-ish" alien tech and a visible force shield in place. This is the Xeno Biology Lab. (per Su Liam's request...) Notice the glass is thicker for this lab, compared to the Big Science Lab tile.

    The second tile is the Niteclub/Communal Gathering Place, notice the "Vid-screen" behind the stage/dance floor. Thus training and education, entertainment, restaurant/niteclub, and public meetings can all occur in this large chamber. I can see children's schooling occur here, as well as church, townhall voting, even serve as a cafeteria.

    I'm sure I'll provide all the individual map objects (like the Xenomorph) as a downloadable transparent PNG files, when I am through with this project.
