I created a public share on Google for those playing online games. You can use them to create new maps. If you share the map file with your players, they can see you move around counters, make notes, etc. 


You find deck plans (like the Gullwind) and other ships, bunkers, ruins, mountains, etc.

Star Frontiers Online Play

SFOP is designed to help Referee's run games online. This document should serve as a resource to assist you, the Referee, in finding online tools, utilities and virtual game tables.

Star Frontiers Google Docs - Maps, counters, etc
  • If you DO NOT have a google account (it's free) you can download the images, however the power of the documents is having a google account since it will allow you to manipulate the maps.  
  • If you HAVE a google account, click on File > Make a Copy and you can edit all the images and layers (The maps are read-only)
Dave's Mapper - Slick geomorph mapping tool, includes city tiles. 

MapTool Project - full featured virtual table top, this project is building a framework for Star Frontiers. MapTool home page.

Google Hangouts - Part of Google Plus, great way to have face-to-face play. Integrated with Google Docs to share maps. 

http://roll20.net/ is anoter browser-based resource for online gaming. It has a lot of neat features.

No good for me.  Google drive isn't supported on my OS.

Tom, 
I'm referring to the browser interface, not the Drive application. Have you tired to access the site?

Yep, I clicked on your link and it takes me to a video about drive and tells me to download and install it and then says it's not supported on Linux. Embarassed  I was expecting a web interface as well and was surprised it didn't work.

Of course now that I try it again it's working.  Go figure.

Awesome!
The deckplans you made would work very well using this tool, are they available for download? Could they be put on Google for everyone to use?

Yes, go to the Frontier Explorer site and hit the hi-res map downloads section.  That's where they live.  Anyone is free to grab them.
