This map tile pack provides you with a wealth of map tiles that all look like they belong together with the same artistic “look and feel” to them. Plus the tile design means you can assemble the tiles to build a dungeon map of almost any complexity.

What is a Map Tile?
A map tile, in the context of this set, is square of artwork depicting a specific 5ft by 5ft area of terrain. Such as the floor of a laboratory, an area of grass, or where the floor meets a wall. In order for a Game Master to build an adventure map for players to explore, map tiles are placed onto the digital canvas one by one until the desired terrain is constructed. Be that terrain a wilderness area, a secret lab, or space station.
Each map tile is a combination of hand drawn artwork and photographic source material that gives us the unique style of all Studio WyldFurr Map tiles. All of the tiles have been rendered from a birds eye view of the landscape, with shadowing used to give the illusion of depth.
Walls Separate from Floors
With our Dungeon Map Tiles III package we started to separate the walls from the floor tiles. We have found this gives us more flexibility with map building as we can combine different walls with different types of floor tiles to create different effects. This pack continues this style of map tile, with two different styles of floor tile and a main style of science fiction wall tiles.
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 a tutorial about building your own maps.
We also have a number of clips on our YouTube Channel of Tailz using the Map Tiles to build adventure maps in Photoshop.
If you are new to building your own adventure maps, we recommend checking out the MapForge Edition of the Dungeon Map Tiles package. This edition of the pack is specially configured to take advantage of the features of the MapForge application.
