Dirt Cheep Cityscapes City Blocks Basic Set



ZIP File
Dirt Cheep Cityscapes brings you what you demanded -- an inexpensive and easy-to-build FULL COLOR modular city for urban adventure gaming! You asked for it for your superhero, espionage, urban crime, modern horror, and all genres set in the Bad Streets of the Big City! Now it`s ready for you!
These sets are provided in our new "Heroic Scale" with a larger 1.5 inch square grid that is perfect for large base and dial-base miniature figures. Or, if you prefer, build them for our standard 1 inch square grid, matching all of our other Dirt Cheep Scenics kits. These sets work either way! (If you want, you can even print them in black-and-white -- but you`ll LOVE the full color effect once you`ve tried it!)
Dirt Cheep Cityscapes City Blocks lets you print and assemble layouts with endless streets, intersections, sidewalks, alleys, parks, construction sites and more! Customize them with manholes, crosswalks, and other layout details -- plus cardstock 3D fire hydrants, streetlights, mailboxes, etc.! You can even create matching interior maps, to reveal only when characters enter buildings.
Use City Blocks alone, or merge with our Dirt Cheep Cityscapes Skyscrapers Basic Set and Modern Vehicles set for a complete urban gaming environment.

Probably the basis of every map I make. I make digital maps for my group, and this one has color and everything else I'd need. The variety makes it nice for street scenes and the such. [...]

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
