Exclamation About maps, plans and deck plans

Bon dia!!

I'm beginning this thread about maps and deck plans. I know that some of us make extensive use of Google image searcher, Google maps or Google Earth. They are excellent tools for any GM, but sometimes finding, editing or making a suitable map can be a time-consuming task. I think It would be good to have a small cache of maps already filtered by GM`s and players like us for their immediate use in our Twilight:2000 games . So, have you found/made any interesting map / deckplan to use and share? Plans of houses or military installations, deck plans of ships or planes, maps of cities and villagesĂ¢€Â¦

Default Map: Snow-covered village 1

This one is from Close Combat game series. The number over some houses and buildings show their height in floors.

Default good pics

I really like this thread for any encounter you can just whip out one of these maps and off you go.

Keep em coming please.

If we had a library of these on hand to draw on ,a Gm could quicker get a chance encounter up an running .The maps are nice looking too.

Default Map: Mediterranean 1

Thanks! Saint Google will provide.
The three following maps are from Close Combat series, too. I think they are specially suitable for any encounter set in a Mediterranean country. (The maps are from the Battle of the Ebro mod for Close Combat).

The outskirts of a village with a small crossing point over a river

Default Map: Mediterranean 2

A few houses in a Mediterranean countryside.

By the way, in some maps woods are only represented with their shadows. I think it was an option from the Close Combat games to allow a clear vision of your own units.

is that a rail line running parallell to the river on the left bank ? If so does it go into tunnels or is it meant to be interrupted ?

The village at the upper side of the map is the catalan village of AscĂƒÂ³, and the river is the Ebro (Ebre) .The rail line that runs parallel to the river goes into tunnels. The crossing point is a bridge made from boats (I don't know the proper english term, if anyone could inform me... ) by republican engineers in 1938.

Mmmmm... perhaps not post-apocalyptical enough. Well, change the cars for wrecks and some buildings for rubble. Or use it in Merc:2000

A fallout shelter. This map remembers me a chapter of "Brother in the Land", where survivors search and hunt the more wealthy (or lucky) people that are still living in their nuclear fallout shelters

Hunting for badgers iirc. The book reckoned they'd all be hunted out, if for no other reason than their selfishness in not sharing their fortune at having a shelter.
Subbrit is a great website,one I've recommended here in the past. Well worth a look.

Two versions of the Air Force 1 from two different sites. It seems probably that this plane had survived the war.

Default Map: Liberty Ships

I didn't know that some of them were still running. Interesting.
The two first are from the SS Jeremiah O'Brian. Simply change the museum for a cargo hold.

Liberty_Deckplan_1.rar

Liberty_Side_view_1.rar

The file below is another side view of a Liberty Ship, the SS. Fort Halkett. It's another side view. Although it is redundant with the other file, I find that the silhouttes of the transported vehicles are a nice detail to get a quick idea about the relative dimensions of the cargo holds:
