This kit comes with: planets of three sizes, battle and space stations, rings, atmosphere in three shades, a rocket, a space elevator, artificial satellites, exploded moons / asteroid clusters. It comes with a standard array of white, yellow, blue, and red suns, an imploding sun, a Dyson sphere and an artificial mechanical sun with faint mechanisms behind the glow.
The Inhabited Solar System map tile and decor kit also comes with star field and cloudy gas backgrounds, all of which are seamlessly looping textures to make as large of a map background as you need, or use the square on its own to cover a smaller background for a focus planet or simple space encounter. It comes with five “space dock” backgrounds which are transparent, seamlessly looping, and can be used to show a star field and space system behind through the rungs. It also includes a ‘lights overlay’ which can be used to add a scatter of inhabited cities to any planet or battle station surface, or as a unique celestial object in its own right.
If you already have the original Solar System Maker, you’ll be glad to know the two kits are fully compatible with each other. All of the rings and atmosphere from the first Solar System Maker’s three planet sizes will fit Inhabited Solar System Maker’s planets, and the new rings, atmosphere, space elevator and exploded moons in this kit will fit all of those planets too! Mix and match to your heart’s content.
Planets can cover up to about four squares on a map, they are not full maps in themselves. Suns can stretch to be up to 8 squares. All of these elements are square and should snap into place when paired correctly such as planet size 1 atmosphere to planet token, unless set up without a grid. The space elevator tile is the odd piece out. It requires a 1×2 square coverage to size correctly. The light space elevator will show up on most of the star field backgrounds but the dark space elevator is best paired with a brighter background or overlaid on a sun as a silhouette to pop.

If the planet you seek cannot be found in this archive… Contact me via the form on my fantasy map portfolio (email or Discord) and your requests could be considered for a future pack! The space elevator and Dyson sphere in this pack were requested by a fan of Solar System Maker 1! Your ideas could also become real, so just let me know. That time your players caused a spacial rift to eat a space station might just be part of the next pack. Thanks for reading and I hope you enjoy the new kit!
