Re: More Castles experiments

I think that little extra space in the corner is really important when you have the small tower opening up with a single door. Of course when you do it this way you wonder "why do I even need double doors on the large tower?"

Re: No notification commiseration thread

That's part of what makes things so infuriating. It seems like it's going to be two years between the KS ending and some of us finally getting our stuff.

Re: No notification commiseration thread

So this was the second part of a large (at least for me) order. I received the Royal Stronghold last month and set-it up. Very impressed. This second half of the order was for a Grand Citadel and lots of extras. I did not unpack the grand citadel yet since it is largely parts to make the RS bigger....

Have people got the 2nd part of their orders yet for those who received a partial order? I have not, nor tracking for it. I realize there are still those without the first though.
I've seen nothing for the remaining 95% of my order.

Re: Pledge Question

Oh, one important thing to mention: Only money pledged *during* the KS time frame will apply to unlocking stretch goals. Money added in the Pledge Manager phase do not do so. Therefore, if you know your budget, pledge as much as you can during the KS phase, as all our collective funds will help add...

Re: Entire basic dungeon with just Passages - Hallways?

If you don't have rooms sharing a wall I'd actually have prefered the "full floor + tac on wall" approach as well. Even mention this on FB that getting the full 1" floors may make some uses of the KS1 walls obsolete.

Re: Castle with square towers, double walls

When you're going with the square corners you're in an area that almost begs "why use castle walls in the first place?" With the battlements you have I'd think about doing a 4x12 gatehouse with the battlements surrounding it. Essentially it's moving the front corners in although with 20' walls all a...

Bridges and elevations.

Although it may be covered in some of the many compatibility topics how do the heights here compare to the city and castle building systems? I'm looking at the bridge add on and wondering just how it stacks up to the bridges from Castles as well as how well it works with the 2x2x2 blocks. From the p...

Re: New passage set enhancement suggestion

I suspect the passage walls are the same height as the standard walls. The thing is the "floor" for those standard walls is a lot higher than that little tab on the passage walls so now you're either adding another elevation level or you are altering the height of your wall line. Those tabs should b...

Re: No notification commiseration thread

I'm going to be very annoyed, and may entirely skip KS5 if it begins before I've gotten my KS4 pledge. I was a day 1 backer, and shelled out a non-trivial amount of $$ on KS4. Being asked to pledge more money before they've delivered on the last one feels insulting. I definitely don't feel any enth...
