Great looks but bad execution

**( )( )( )

The nebula side looks great! The basic starfield side is ok. The two main problems are that the map is too dark to draw on, so you'll need miniatures or tokens to represent hazards and other markings, and the hex grid is horribly aligned: overlapping hexes, grid lines that differ in thickness. The first problem could be fixed by using a light semi-transparent overlay over the whole map, maybe only on the starfield side, such that drawings become easy to see.

Beautiful Maps, But...

**( )( )( )

First off, the "Drift" side of this map is beautiful. It adds a nice touch for a 'basic starfield.'

And the images of these starscapes is very clear and visually pleasing.

But... this does make them more difficult to *use* with variety.

For example, the dark starfield side is used in an SFS encounter that involves asteroids. Yet the map is printed with dark-black space, no matter which color I drew the asteroids with they were nearly invisible to all of my players!

I feel a subdued color for the starfields (a medium-to-dark grey) would have communicated the same message of "you're in space" while also allowing the GM to meaningfully mark on the map, without having to resort to cutting out odd-hex-based asteroids and placing them on the map (hoping they don't get moved when players reach over the large-sized map).

Good looking and functional, but...

***( )( )

...but as with the squares on the Starfinder Basic Terrain flip-map, the hexes here are too big...nearly 1.25 inches, in fact. This doesn't hurt quite as much as it would for a grid, as you're unlikely to try to line it up with anything else or lay templates, etc. down on it, but it is still unfortunate.

Also, I don't see why this had to be as large as it a "basic" product, keeping the price down by using a regular 24"x30" map would have been the way to go. Plus my bigger basic -- which folds the same way this does -- has an odd flap that often gets hung up on things.

All that said, the art is good and it gets the job done. It's just a needlessly flawed product that should have been a no-brainer. Gift Certificates
