Re: What did you do to my bridge ???

Unfortunately this is not the only ugly plate visible in the castle pieces. One that comes to mind is the corner filler walls which have the magnet and plate exposed on opposite ends. So when you form a corner one exposed edge has a metal plate showing (and the magnet has no plate to attach to becau...

Re: Manual drawbridge photo

Thanks for the pics, especially of the backside. So do you just pull the break out of the way and wind the cog/wheel with your fingers to raise it back up? I assume gravity means all you need to do to lower it is pull the break out of the way? Assuming it doesn't come in white plastic, that manual o...

Re: 1" Extension troubles

I was pretty ticked off this pack was removed post KS, after I already added funds specifically for it. I was one of the people originally asking for it. And I don't have a huge order. It's a problem in general. My wizard tower with teleporters instead of stairs will require shafting a whole other t...

Re: Manual drawbridge photo

How will the manual winch work? Do you take off the top and wind a little miniature crank? Does the front of it differ since there is no longer a hidden switch under that big decoration? Or is it still present but unused? I guess a picture would help a lot to see how it looks in place and how the ot...

Re: Pictures - How Suspended Parapets Work

Since the inside corner wall piece has a post hole, you could wedge it into a quarter wall gap and attach parapet/turret to that. Not as pretty but easy to do.

Re: Pictures - How Suspended Parapets Work

With only two corbels or wtf we are calling them, all corner pieces basically become the same, right?

I'd actually prefer that solution. Forget this corner vs corner transition business. Eliminate it :D

Re: Motorized Gate Switch

Yes, would be easy to use a roof platform next to a stone building to create a pulley for lifting a floor or other metal thing. Elevator!

Re: Motorized Gate Switch

I would be totally ok with two stone buttons on each side of the front. I do like the front pieces, I just don't like the idea of pulling them off to mess with drawbridge. And stone (tac) switches mean the piece would be useable with no front plate, and even without the drawbridge if you threw it in...

Re: Motorized Gate Switch

What about a push button with a cap that looks like a stone in the wall? Then just push the stone and drawbridge goes. I'd like that.

Edit: Apparently someone already suggested that. I should learn to read sometime.

Re: More Water - It is OFFICIAL!

Yeah I was discussing this with Nate in Austin. Was a bit worried that it might be hard to fit around castles and still match KS2 water without those spacing gaps, which are more noticeable on flat water.
