Educational and scene setting! Keep track of where dangers lie hidden with Danger, Explosive, Warning, Poison, Steam, Hot, Poison, Radioactive, Offgas, Rubble, Wreckage, and Crash Site labels.

Full list of worldbuilding labels included below.
3 pieces of high tech factory equipment to place and mark a mine.
5 asteroids with mines already placed.
5 transparent starfields. Good to place over a nebula cloud to create layers.
57 other asteroid arrangements, from small spread out fields to large singles. These also work great as plain ol’ rubble and rocks in fantasy battlemap settings.
357 assets and items in total to expand your solar system and intergalactic adventures! Make and mine a galaxy! Discover new resources and use them to craft your fictional civilization as you travel the galaxy in games such as Starfinder, Star Wars, all forms of science fiction themed RPGs and more! Excellent for science and chemistry or resource management heavy games.

Use this as an expansion for my Solar System Maker to add even more color to your solar system map. Sizes of items are relatively compatible. Or use to spice up your intergalactic travel with your party as they crawl through space and time itself on quests and collection runs. Designed with the needs of resource mining as a part of gameplay. Be sure to get the Solar System Maker to expand your space maps if you don’t already have it, and take a look at my other sets as well!

What words are included other than every metal and element on the periodic table of elements? Air Traffic, Alien Nest, Bank, Bar, Build Site, Capital, Casino, Charging, City, Cold, Colony, Core, Corrosive, Crash Site, Danger, Drill Site, Drones, Enclave, Engineering, Entrance, Exit, Explosive, Extraction, Fuel, Gas, Hot, Hub, Infested, Inhabited, Jail, Landing, Loose Rocks, Maintenance, Metropolis, Mine, Offgas, Office, Open Pit, Ore, Parking, Plant, Poison, Processing, Quarry, Radioactive, Receiving, Refinery, Refuse, Repair, Resource, Robots, Rubble, Ruins, Security, Sheriff, Shipping, Smelter, Spill, Stampede, Steam, Storage, Tankers, Town, Trader, Traffic, Trash, Village, Warning, Wreckage. If you need other words, there are blanks and everything is downloadable. Words are included as a separate dungeon draft pack.

If you want a pack with more actual mechanical rubble, I recommend the sequel to this pack: Space Junk 2: Sci-Fi Wreckage, Rubble, Asteroids, Suns and Starfields for DungeonDraft and generic PNGs and Battle Stations! Space Map Kit with Tech, Suns and Star Tiles DungeonDraft and PNG pack! (DungeonDraft update: now colorable, with lights and tagged!).

Those two packs fill out the limitations of this one.

Thanks for reading and enjoy making your own custom galaxies full of rocks in space!

    I bought this. There are only zip folders filled with pngs. No button in downloads for Dungeondraft pack file/s.

  2. Tiffany Munro

    There is a DungeonDraft pack. I have double checked. I privately sent Simon the file and if anyone else can’t find the .dungeondraft_pack please send me an email and I will send it to you too. 🙂

March 29 2022 Update!

Added .dungeondraft_pack for the labels, and for the objects / background textures. Made all background textures have a seamless variation for building your own maps, instead of just being set pieces, these are included as 2048 px pngs. Made all seamless background textures have an 'alpha' version which can be used to allow some background to show through. Gave all textures a red version for color changing in Dungeon Draft. Take full advantage of DungeonDraft's unique terrain building paintbrush!

July 22 2022 update: Added browser tags in DungeonDraft, made all the objects colorable objects as well as the original preset colors. All nebula are included as lights now too. For the main DungeonDraft pack, all you have to do is redownload and reinstall. However. I did this to the 'markers' too and I put that one as a download in CartographyAssets because it's small enough, and it may not be visible to download to people who purchased before July 22. If you want the colorable markers and bought it before this update just email me and I'll send it to you.
