    Post Kihmbar's Science Fiction Objects

    Here are a few sci-fi objects I have made for my Star Wars maps. I needed some equipment for the engineering section of a starship, so here are my reactors, generators, and conduits to connect them. They are pretty basic, but I usually "dirty" them up (with rust or chemical stains) when I place them on a map. [If you would like an example of how I have used these objects on my maps, see my Starship Sections thread. The Engineering section and Engineering overlays use these objects.]

    Also, we use some of my maps for online play. I have catwalks on several maps and needed a way to distinguish between who is up on the catwalk and who is down on the floor - hence a Level 1 marker to indicate that the folks on the catwalks are on Level 1 (instead of the Ground level). [I play Advanced Squad Leader and borrowed the Level idea from that game.]

    I don't know how useful that will be to those of you building maps, but it comes in handy when playing online with the maps.

    I usually grab objects from The Holocron, RPG MapShare, WotC Forums, or Dundjinni Forums. If it isn't there, or I don't like what is there, I will try to draw something up for myself. (I do not see any use in re-inventing the wheel.)

    As always comments, criticisms, suggestions, or bad jokes are welcome. Ok, maybe not the bad jokes.

    Thanks Kihmbar,

    Most neighborly of you

    Thanks Kihmbar, When I've found time to make a few, I'll add a folder of my own to join in the neighbourliness - we need as many scifi elements as we can get!
