    It's a great game.

    Here are some additional overlays. I've given them a standard background tile so that they will connect with the corridors smoothly. They should be the same scale as the starship sections. They are 12x12 overlays and should fit in any of the corners of the starship section maps.
    A cargo storage area:

    A vehicle bay (with speeder bikes, AT-STs, and a halftrack modified to be Imperial):
    Starship Sections Maps (Part 1)-vehicle-bay.jpg
    The walls are a little difficult to make out because they are gray against the gray flooring.

    A narrow corridor (ideal for choke points):

    I'm working on some additional overlays for March. As always, comments and criticisms are welcome.

    Hoel: Is the spacing on these more what you were expecting?

    Yup. This is what I was after!
    I'll keep stealing your maps since I plan to GM some star wars in the future.
    Thanks!

    These are great. Keep them coming

    Sci-fi stuff is hard to find.

    Where did you find the At St & Speeder Bike?

    I've had a bit of free time to work on this. Here are some more overlays. First a 12x12 weapons emplacement:
    Starship Sections Maps (Part 1)-weapon-emplacement.jpg
    Each weapon has it's own fire control stations. The bottom right is a small power room to power the weapons.

    Next, I went with some smaller 6x6 overlays. I intend on using these for the "Modular Base" that our group has acquired [found on pg77 of the Bases and Strongholds sourcebook]. They don't fit together as neatly as the 12x12, but if you place a corridor between them it won't matter. I've included a 2x1 corridor if you want to line them up normally.

    A command module overlay:
    Starship Sections Maps (Part 1)-command-module.jpg
    The command module has four stations: communications, sensors, command, and systems. Feel free to designate them as you see fit.

    A barracks module overlay:
    Starship Sections Maps (Part 1)-crew-barracks.jpg
    Room for 16 bunks to house the crew. I added a few personal effects to break up the monotony.

    A "blank" module overlay:
    Starship Sections Maps (Part 1)-empty-module.jpg
    In case you want to make up your own or just have an empty one.

    And the 2x1 corridor:

    I trust that will help out some of your sci-fi games. I'll post additional overlays in batches as I get finished. If you have any suggestions of what you would like to see, please let me know. As always, comments and criticism is welcome.

    Xyll: I'm not sure where I got them, but I think it was the Holocron. There's a "101 Mapmaking Objects" download that has a lot of SW stuff. Also, there is RPGMapShare. I think this is where I got the AT-STs. If not there, then it may have been on the WotC forum.

    I already did an airlock as part of the modular base, so here's my take on a "passenger entry area" for the Star Wars universe:
    Starship Sections Maps (Part 1)-passenger-entryway.jpg
    Passengers enter up the ramp in the bottom center and can go from there to wherever they need. I included both stairs and turbolifts for multiple-level access. There are plenty of computer terminals for information. And the troopers have a break room nearby in case trouble starts.

    And what would a starship be without a detention block:
    Starship Sections Maps (Part 1)-detention-cell.jpg
    The bottom left is a room for the guards with a small armory behind it (give the PCs somewhere to rearm themselves). The bottom right is intended to be an officer's office with a small living quarters behind it. The "side" exits are intended to lead to maintenance areas (or trash compactors), not for primary traffic flow.

    A few more overlays to customize a starship interior. I'm looking at doing a fighter bay or hanger next. Something that the players can land a ship in so that they have access to the larger starship. As always, comments and criticisms are welcome.

    These look good but I can't help but want to add a stroke around the objects or maybe a shadow to help them not blend into the floor. Keep up the nice work, though, they look good.

    I've been GMing a Star Wars campaign and needed some more of these sections. The players are going to visit a gas refinery, so I generated the following sections.

    First, the refinery map:
    Starship Sections Maps (Part 1)-space-map-nebula-station-blank-.jpg
    The long section at the top is the docking bay. It runs off the edge of the map as to accommodate any size starship. (The GM is cheating because he doesn't know which ship the players will be using.) The smaller platforms are 12x12 - most of the starship section overlays should fit into these. I was going to drop the crew's quarters, the officer's quarters, the control room, and the following 12x12 overlays onto the map (two at a time, of course). This way I can use the same layout with different sections of the facility. There are closed walkways connecting each platform. [I designed it like this in case the players want to go EVA to infiltrate the facility.]

    Engineering:
    Starship Sections Maps (Part 1)-engineering-12x12.jpg
    Has some engine looking stuff and computers.

    Gas Storage:
    Starship Sections Maps (Part 1)-gas-storage-12x12.jpg
    Has a big tank for holding whatever needs to be held.

    Gas Refinery:
    Starship Sections Maps (Part 1)-gas-refinery-12x12.jpg
    Has several smaller vessels to collect the nebula gas.

    I've added drop shadows to help keep things from blending into the background. As always - comments and criticisms are welcome.

    Kihmbar, these look great.

    If the objects are your own work, would you be willing to produce a folder of them separately, as Torstan did with his dungeon elements?

    If they're not, could you link your source?

    I'm planning to do some scifi interiors in Viewingdale, and If I could import these objects (consoles, weapons, pipes, etc) rather than making my own, it would save a lot of work.

    Cheers.
