I was just looking at my Sci Fi sets today...thinking about how they'd be a good candidate for a kickstarter. I wonder if they would build off the current theme, or start with a new design. I had forgotten how fully fleshed out the Sci Fi line was and how much detail there was. Love to see what they could do with Dwarvenite.

back in the day, these beautiful Sci-Fi ship layouts beckoned:

I would like a set, dwarvenite or otherwise, that i could use for a Traveller ship or station, or for a Starfinder game.

star wars, the light freighter is about 35 meters long. thats about 10 2"x2" dungeon tiles across. thats the length of a traveller scout ship (which is smaller in width), but a free trader is about 13 tiles long, and 6 tiles wide (plus the fuel tank, which is more external walls). heck, the cargo bay alone is 35 floor tiles (7x5, PLUS walls). we need a large 'cargo bay' floor tile.

the 'extras' of ship consoles and such would be nice, if broken up between engineering, command, and passenger compartments. probably a 'cargo' selection of crates and barrels as well, those would be high demand for other games too.

I would be like a set if thee different center hub sections that were three-sided, five-sided, and five-sided for multispoked ships and stations.

Also it would be good to have engine room, thrusters, air lock, a hangar door, and turrets plus if course re-reals of all the "current" DF SF sets.

Long passages or hallways are needed. I considered a set of the maki sci fi corridors but after reading more decided against it.

I think 9x9 squares tile, a pack of long straight walls (2x6 squares), damaged straight walls, a lift door, a base entrance, straight walls with transparent windows.
I agree with all of these, but especially bigger stand-alone floor pieces and long walls. An airlock would be useful also.

I feel that there is little that is really needed aside from re-casting the older sets again, or making something with similar pieces if those molds are gone. I know I would invest rather heavily in such a re-release of those sets. Sadly, I was a penny pinching college student when they were last available. That is no longer the case.

My order should arrive tomorrow. I look forward to posting pictures as soon as I get my first set up put together. Once I have evaluated how far I can stretch those sets I'll be checking the budget to see how much more I can afford. This is an exciting time. I can see combining the sci fi sets with caverns and the rumored sewer set to create some excellent Fallout 3 and New Vegas style setups.

I am with you guys - i will sign up for a 10 pack of sci-fi plus 5-10 addons!.

I have 5 rooms, 6 sets of corridors and a set of the large platforms/columns (no ramp though) and a set of accessories.

Its enough to show off the set but not enough to reallly do something magnificent.

5 sets only.

What I would like to see in a future set ?
I think 9x9 squares tile, a pack of long straight walls (2x6 squares), damaged straight walls, a lift door, a base entrance, straight walls with transparent windows.

In fact, since I started to collect this product line, I realized the 4 first sets are excellent since you need nothing else more to construct a spaceship or a futurist base.
The furniture (fifth set) was great but if you see the pic I just posted above, many trademarks are doing furniture to complete you set up.

So it's hard to imagine what Jeff could add (corrige me but I think it's Jeff who designed the sf line isn't it ?)
