New releases and future plans with Space Fantasy content!

We have a whole bunch of new releases, including new map packs, new asset packs, and a new background pack. There is also news about future plans with Spelljammer-inspired space fantasy content and about the new release model for upcoming maps.

New Map Packs

Since the last news update, there have been four new map packs released which should all work great for all kinds of science fiction, cyberpunk, or even modern-day scenarios. They are all currently available directly from the new store and Patreon. We should hopefully also have them soon on both Roll 20 and DriveThruRPG stores.

Corporate Bio-Lab

In a remote and secluded jungle valley, there is a small building housing a group of scientists and security personnel. The building is a research and monitoring center for testing new biological creations.

This four-level map works great as a questionable lab for sinister corporate experiments or as an outpost on a remote planet. In addition to the ready-made variants, there are also propped and unpropped variants with transparent background that you can customize to fit your needs.

HyperCorp Boardroom

An immensely tall skyscraper rises far above the ground level and you can see the skyline of the vast megacity through the boardroom windows. In this boardroom high-ranking corporate executives, military officers, diplomats, or crime lords can discuss matters and share sensitive information that can affect the lives of millions – even whole worlds.

Looking for that special place for your evil corporate meetings or meeting your fellow Illuminati? Maybe instead you’re looking to ambush the leaders of a vicious criminal organization? Whatever your needs are for a great-looking boardroom, this map will most likely fill them nicely. The map pack includes 11 different variants, including day and night versions and an unpropped variant.

Underground Parking Hall

An underground parking hall or garage with a small office for the staff or security personnel. The hall is divided into two levels and there are multiple points of entry and exit to make things more interesting and give more tactical options for different scenarios.

A clandestine meeting place, a location for a cyberpunk shootout or even a place to find previous resources in a post-apocalyptic world. This underground parking hall has many uses and 20 variants with 5 different themes, you can easily find one that will suit your needs!

HyperCorp Lobby

This map can represent a corporate or hospital lobby, a hotel reception, or the entrance to a ruined skyscraper. Whether you are fighting zombies or corporate agents, or you are trying to get in or out of the building this battle map can function as a great gauntlet with plenty of cover for firefights or stealth.

Looking to recreate that one famous lobby shooting scene? Maybe you just need a hospital lobby or a hotel reception for your adventurers to sneak their way through? Either way, this map pack offers plenty of variety with 20 variants and plenty of options to fit your needs.

New Asset Packs

We have also released three new asset packs since the last news update. They should help you customize or even totally transform many of the map packs available on Miska’s Maps. These are currently available only on Patreon for Adventurer and higher tiers but will be coming later to other stores.

Vehicle and Damage Decals

These two asset packs work great together but also offer loads of possibilities separately. The vehicle pack includes a huge collection of 295 vehicles with various color and loadout variants, 23 weapon system props, 18 vehicle wrecks, and debris pieces, and 126 vehicle parts and accessories.

There are conventional wheeled vehicles, landspeeders, spinners, hovercars, hoverbikes, swoop bikes, buggies, Exploration ATVs, vans, police vehicles, and taxis. This collection should easily cover at least the most basic needs for your urban and frontier world adventures. 

If you are looking to personalize the various vehicles in the other pack even more or just wanting to spice up your maps with some extra damage marks, the new damage decal asset pack will help you do just that.

There are bullet holes, monster claw marks, scratches, and different repair patches in the pack that will help you set the mood for your players or make your map look as battle-worn as you need.

Assets in both packs are available in PNG and WEBP file formats.

You will find both of these asset packs on Patreon.

Desert Town Buildings and Props #01

Want to build your own frontier town on a desert planet or just looking to modify an existing one? This asset pack has 32 different desert town buildings in various sizes, shapes, and colors that will make that much easier.

The assets in this pack are available in PNG and WEBP file formats.

You can get this asset pack on Patreon.

New Background Pack

In addition to map and asset packs, we also released a new collection of backgrounds that should help nicely with all your space battle and space background needs. These are currently available only on Patreon for Adventurer and higher-tier patrons.

Space & Astral Sea Backgrounds #01

This collection includes 12 different backgrounds that come in plain 40×45 squares at 140px/square resolution (5600x6160px). The backgrounds are avaible in JPG, PDF and WEBP file formats.

Get this background pack on Patreon.

Spelljammer content and the new release model

With the new Spelljammer adventure setting announced for release later this year for the latest edition of Dungeons & Dragons, Miska’s Maps will be producing new Spelljammer-inspired space fantasy maps and assets in the near future!

Even if Spelljammer is more fantasy than sci-fi there are still great opportunities in this to create material that is equally compatible with Starfinder and Star Wars universes. This means temples built into asteroids, gigantic petrified corpses of great ancient beings floating in space, living spaceships, cities drifting in interdimensional space, and ancient tombs in alien worlds are all something you could see in Spelljammer or traditional space opera alike.

You can expect the first releases of this content to come during the summer, so you can be all set up for the eventual release of Spelljammer on August 16th.

The New Release Model

Miska’s Maps will be focusing with the upcoming releases on offering a larger variety of unique maps instead of a large number of variants per map. This will be tested on the next few upcoming maps and there will still be some maps with more variants available.

Like these new series will be grouped together into Foundry VTT modules, where it’s then easy to add more props and adjust the lighting, or weather effects, as needed.

Upcoming Releases

The main focus for May will be to finish the Dungeondraft and Foundry VTT asset pack updates and to work on some texture packs. In addition, these unfinished maps will be hopefully done before moving on to the new series:

  • Underground containment level (Jungle bio-lab cellar-level)
  • Landing pad battle map
  • Eco-research station
  • Prison transport deckplan
  • Abandoned Space Temple
  • Asteroid “dungeon”

The two main tracks for the new series with the aforementioned new release model will be Hypercorp Arcology and Space Fantasy (with Spelljammer focus) combining various environments like urban locations, water worlds, and asteroid belts, but others also.

These series are not monthly themes but will likely span content from a few upcoming months. There will be also occasionally releases of new maps and assets outside of these main tracks.

Besides maps, there will be new assets coming up. There is a pack of 50+ prison-themed assets coming up and there will be some building-scale debris, junk piles, and such assets coming soon as well.

As always you can find the newest updates and all the map packs and assets on Patreon!
