INTRODUCTION

After many friends asked me for I created this own custom Tile Set for Terraforming Mars. All Tiles are made with Blender and in high resolution. I print them with DLP printers using UV resin. They fit onto the Terraforming Mars game board and replace the original cardboard tiles. The player color cubes and all other game material of the original game is not included.

THE DESIGN

15 different City Tiles ( shown with player color cubes which are not included ):

15 different Forrest Tiles ( shown with player color cubes which are not included ):

11 different Special Tiles ( shown with player color cubes which are not included ):

15 Water Tiles ( I made 15 designes but for playing and inside the sets 10 are used ):

The Water Tiles are the only Elements I can print in Sets of 5 pieces each. All other Tiles gets printed as a single piece.

DEMO GAME

Basic Set used and just some of all Tiles are shown. Cubes and game board are not included.

Risks and challenges

I already printed over 1000 Tiles and each design a couple of times. Small issues are already fixed and the printing process runs verry well. Because I dont want to break the timeline I limited the Set quantity of each wave. If many more want to have such a Set I will buy more printers and add a third production wave later on.

-Production: I will manufacture all tiles in my 3D printing lab here in Germany near munic.

-Shipping Delays: There is always the possibility of shipping delays which I try to minimize by planning enough safety inside the whole timeline while maintaining the highest quality I can. If something gets lost or broken during ship off just contact me and you get replacement parts.
