i'm thinking 3d print a groove/tray for prefab battery box/holder for hobby motor - then it is a slip together project and nothing will shift

In order to make the internal parts turn with the wheel, I would need to find a way to secure them to a floor piece somehow. One way is to try and utilize the floor pieces with the stairway hole.

just put a channel on the battery box that the wall slips into - then nothing can move - it will raise the wall ever so slightly, but shouldn't be too bad

attempt at ascii art

so the 000 is the motor, the xxx is the box for 2 aa batteries and the wall drops into the groove

Still working on the fit of the small window frames. The dimensions vary from window to window it seems.

I do not have any city builder tiles. I most likely will throw the window adapter into the parts ben and drill a hole.

One of the upcoming Green Hoard tiles is a mill tile. The mill interior has the mill stone. I also want another wheel for a Hobbit mill I am working on.

The mill tile. I will probably want a broken wheel too. I think the whole wheel will most likely look better.

Ok. I will borrow some water pieces from my friend and set up the scale of the wheel to attach to a window wall piece sitting on the small floor spacer piece on a double high house wall (if that makes sense) and just be high enough to clear the water tile. I will look into motorizing it (because that would be cool) and not do any special internal pieces. Will be a week or so before I get the updated wheel done. (And will look into creating a windmill attachment).

In the mean time, I will add in the "downward steps into darkness" floor inserts for wood and stone floors after I print them up tonight. Also hope to have some window options for the tower and abbey windows printed.
"not do any special internal pieces"
Why?
I do not want roofs! That is not a reason not to make them.I do not want to motorize that is also no reason not to :!:
