Can anyone point to a source for the blown-up images of the Shattered Ascension maps that used to be found on ti3wiki?

Cheers,
Vandervecken

I reconstructed the Shattered Ascension Ultimatem map from the crappy low res image in the pdf. I took a high res picture of it and uploaded it yesterday, you can find it in the images from Shattered Empire and in this post. It's not the most beautiful picture ever but it should get the job done.



Would be awesome though if anybody still has those high res files that used to be on TI3wiki and could post them.

I have the maps, but I've subsequently added in Shards of the Throne systems to them, so they aren't like in the pdf. If you want the tiles in order to recreate them yourself, you'd just need to plop these into GIMP or Photoshop and arrange accordingly:

I've also created two SA 6-player maps very much like PsiComa's if you'd like to check them out:

Thanks for the Ultimatum map.
And thanks for the pointer to the system tile scans, but I'm mostly looking for larger (read less blurry) pictures of the SA maps themselves.

I'm thinking about doing others but it depends on how bored I get, no guarantees.

In case anyone runs across this thread in the future. The maps are actually all hosted in high enough resolution on the Shattered Ascension website now. http://www.astralvault.net/games/SA/maps.html

Do these include Shards systems?

Also, how well do they work without using SA rules?

As long as you allow Artifacts to reside in space, nebulas and such, you can use these maps together with the original rules. The bidding system, however, is recommended to remove as much luck as possible in the start-up (considering that some locations may favor certain races a tad bit). If you want a truly fair game start-up, you could use the initiation rules from SA and proceed with the vanilla rules if you prefer that.

The new, upcoming maps include systems from Shards.

Hey Psi, how come only one 6 player map on astralvault site? Well, 2, but one of them is symetrical HS placement. Seems like you'd want a lot of those, just curious.

It's just because time and resources are scarce these days, and the little time I have for ti3 has been spent on other things, like graphical work on SA game components, etc.

I uploaded another 6-player map now, called Terminus. Again, due to lack of time, it's still just a photograph (we prefer to construct them physically). I'll recreate them graphically later.
Yeah, we need more 6-player maps, but it feels like 4-5 player maps are more used.
