If KS7 can be outdoor themed with a hint of Elven kingdom, I am all for KS8 and KS9 being Sci-fi and Modern.

I couldn't agree more about having a dwarvenite/modern set. I've started doing more regular Starfinder sessions with the party, and while I can utilise a lot of my regular dwarvenite pieces, and especially the realm of the ancients resin pieces, I'd love to have some actual sci-fi themed pieces. I missed out on being able to secure any sci-fi resin since I've only known about DF for a few years, and the main focus when I started collecting was classic dungeons and caverns. Even finding sci-fi pieces from aftermarket sources is basically impossible.

I'd like to see a very basic core set released with maybe KSVI or KSVII as an add-on so DF can see if there is actually any market for these pieces yet. I would easily buy something on par with that of the size of a "game tiles set", so buying 4 or 5 sets can build you half a star-ship or military base no problem.

I won't buy anything fully resin but if they do a sci-fi dwarvenite one day I may hop on it. I'd actually be REALLY interested in a modern day dwarvenite line for military skirmish games or zombie wargaming, etc. Could also intermix with sci-fi sets for like UFOs crashlanding in suburbia, etc.

A line of tiles for "houses" these would be vinyl siding pattern on the outside wall, plaster on the inside wall. Some with hardwood floors some with carpet textures. Add on pack of interior only walls. Add on pack of tiles that also have windows. Add on pack of doors. Preferably in 2x2 tile format rather than the CBS format.

A line of Apartment buildings or could double as brick houses. Same as above but brick pattern on external wall tiles instead of siding.

A line of cinder block tiles, pattern on both sides. Useful for basements, industrial buildings, etc. Cement texture floor.

A line of tiles with corrugated metal walls and concrete floors. Useful for making warehouses and other industrial type buildings.

A few add on like garage bay doors (2x4) tiles, etc.

THAT would be an amazing system for building random neigborhoods, business, etc. for modern military skirmishes.

I have eyed those SF Hirst Arts molds many times and have also considered ordering some of the pre-cast sf blocks. I had a fair bit of experience with them in the 90s, when I bought about 10 of his early molds (including several of his early prototypes). I found that I was not enough interested in the casting process to make it work (ie. large volume). I figure I can give the 3D printers orders once (or twice) a day and generate several hundred parts over the course of a year. I can also use my CAD skills for customs and new tiles. I am very interested in designing some 5x5 SF tiles for the new 28mm Battlestations game. I will report back on my success.

I just bought a 3D printer and am heading in a new direction. I am going to see if I can print in enough volume and with sufficient quality to replace my DF SF sets (7 starters / 2 passages /2 alpha/1 beta /1 gamma). If that works out, I am going to sell my resin sets. If DF gets back in the SF game, I will probably hop all over Dwarvenite / Gorgonite (or maybe Meteorite) sets.
I was tempted last week end by a friends shiny new printer. I am afraid the quality was not there. I am sure there are better machines. Let us know how yours works out.

I would also recommend 4 bot and Hist arts lines of Sci Fi molds to argument the Dwarven Forge sets.

With Starfinder and the rerelease of SWd6 the timing has never been better.
Yup! We pulled out my SF sets again for the start of the Starfinder Society games; all the players wanted to play at the table simply because of the terrain.

I would drop 7k or more on a sci-fi dwarvenite. I own 9 base sci-fi sets, 4 passage, 4 alpha, 1 beta (the last one I saw on ebay I bought at almost $400), and 2 gamma sets (thank you AnimeSensei for letting me buy them.)
Hey, thank YOU! :)
