Why don't the Erithor Mountain or Necromancer's Castle appear in the shop?

I hope a website store revamp is in the works as well. I recently started painting all my LED fiddly bits, and realized the image for LED components from Castles was never changed. The graphic for the LED wall orb, is still the "sculpt in progress" from 2 years ago. Trying to find what it actually looks like before buying it painted, is practically impossible.
Thankfully folks here on the forums have provided pics. That doesn't help anyone shopping, though.

Nate mentioned a new website in one of the livefeeds. Though no idea when that will be.

Agree the shop could do with a revamp, sorting product into multiple groups in a proper navigation bar would help a lot.
So you have Castles KS and Mountains as different options.

This helps casual users browse DF products with requiring any prior knowledge of the DF product line.
Having the KS option allows more experienced users to find what they want. Especially immediately after a KS delivery and they are looking to enhance their pledge.

The current shop is not that bad if you know what you want, the search facility is pretty competent. The biggest issue is always stock and the shop should show all possible product purchases even if out of stock.

We would like to see a view all option, so all product is on one page for any given criteria.

Problem with web design is so many options for layout, we test these things and we believe that the expression 'there is more than one way to skin a cat' should be changed to 'there is a billion ways to layout a webpage'

Hello Morgrim66

About 9 months ago I and several others made suggestions again for DF to redo the store.


I personally think it makes since for items to be organized by the most resent fulfilled KS for a few months, but after that I think they should organize the Dwarvenite items by environment. But it does not look like they are in any hurry to reorganize the store.

KS season is pretty chaotic at "The Forge". I'm sure official staff appreciate constructive criticism but they might have slightly more time to read the forum only in a few weeks.

So,

Not knowing that the Erinthor mountains set was part of the castle builder section, I had no idea how to find it. I think with everything that is coming to the store, They might consider doing some navigation and search updates for the site. Currently it is rather difficult to know where to look for the kinds of pieces you want. I build programs and web sites for a living, I may post some suggestions when I have time to reflect.

This site is your storefront guys. I am sure you want it to be easy for people to find the things they want to spend money on :).

Hmm, as I look at it I think the "Necromancer's Castle" may really just be the regular castle with "Necromancer" flair.
