Alien Hive Map Tiles

Robot standing on map tileOld adventurers tell stories about a strange metallic temple hidden deep in the dark green of the forest. A place of strange machines, and incubation chambers where the horror of weird science takes place.

The Alien Hive Map Tiles collection of art assets gives you the ability to build strange extraterrestrial adventure maps for your science fiction or fantasy role-playing games.

How to use the Map Tiles?

The map tiles have been made as a kind of ready-made art pack that you can simply just drag’n’drop onto a digital art canvas to build a map. To do this all you need is a graphics editing program such as Photoshop, Gimp, or another Map Making program that permit you to use pre-created tiles to build maps. We recommend using Gimp, it is free and is a very powerful program for this task. If you are not sure about what to do, we have created a tutorial for using the map tiles in Photoshop and another tutorial for Gimp.

You can also check out the videos on the Studio YouTube Channel to see how our resident artist Tailz builds his maps in Photoshop.

What is a Map Tile?

Our map tiles depict an area of terrain, such as the floor of a cave, an area of grass, or where the floor meets a wall. The map tiles are provided as ready-made art elements that can be pieced together on a digital canvas to form an adventure map that players can explore.

All Studio WyldFurr map tiles have a unique “look’n’feel” as each map tile is a combination of photographic source material combined with hand drawn artwork. Rendered at a scale of three on screen pixels to each real world inch, resulting in 180 pixel squares to each 5ft game grid.
