I have a slew of the old cardboard WotC tiles for fantasy and wanted to try these flip-tiles without duplicating what I already had, so I took a chance on this set. These tiles feel identical to the Map Pack tiles I've bought previously, though it's clear they put extra focus on being able to rearrange and make varied layouts. Some tiles do seem to be duplicated (for instance small rooms along a hallway) but there were only two copies of maybe ten tiles, with the rest being unique.
The station (or easily large starship corridor) that they depict is a little - I don't want to say 'bland' because of the negative connotations - but other than a few greebly techno-modules (like on the cover image) they are pretty open and sparse. Hoping that the expansion sets add some more variety and environmental decorations.
I agree with the comments on the fantasy ones that the tile name on each card is a great feature, and I like the tabbed dividers that came with it - seems to be made of the same surface material as the tiles so you can probably write or draw on them just fine. Overall I think this set was worth every penny and has convinced me to keep buying the Starfinder ones as released; I'll probably pick up the urban fantasy tiles as well, and without my existing stock of dungeon/ wilderness cardboard tiles I'd grab those in a heartbeat too.
Digital Download of Starfinder FLip-Tiles... Disappointing
Since the appearance of Covid-19, my Starfinder and DnD fixes have been digital. I have purchased (nearly) all of the paizo flip maps from the internet since playing Starfinder but since transitioning to the digital realm I thought I needed to get hold of some digital assets.
Fantasy digital assets are everywhere but Sci-fi assets are relatively hard to come by in any meaningful way. However, I remembered seeing a "pdf download" option on the paizo website, so I thought at the very least I could easily duplicate what I already had in print, digitally. And then I saw the Flip-Tiles:Space Station starter set, which would (should have) worked perfectly for my virtual table top. Unfortunately it appears these have been scanned in from the print versions to PDF? because the pixel density and size of the images is NOT the same, more than that every single tile has a digital watermark so when put together to make an interesting map, looks truly terrible with writing everywhere. The tiles themselves don't tessellate well, leaving seams and other inconsistencies. All in all not worth the money. Saying that, when I return to in-person play I will definitely buy the print edition as I believe they will still work adequately on the real table top.
Update: The digital assets for this product have been updated to include JPGs for easier use with VTTs, in addition to the original PDF(s). If you already have the digital version of this product, you should be able to download the updated version from the Digital Content section of your account at your convenience. Enjoy!
I apologize for the confusion but the PDF version of this product was previously posted with an incorrect price of $10.49. It has now been updated to the correct price of $24.99. Sorry again, and thanks for your understanding!
