Just like the Renaissance to be jealous of the stoney Middle Ages...

You can use them to do a barbican with the 6" towers instead of the 4". It also will make our stone CBS more flexible, which means the Tudor CBS will feel jealous.
Unless I specifically state that my information is directly from Valoria, my comments are just my own opinions.

I would really like piles of the tall pillars and risers, or better yet piles of tall pillars and tall CBS walls, wibdows, and doors. That would be perfect for great halls, cathedrals, etc.

Hmm, how do you figure that? I think you need 3 double height posts on each of 4 CBS floors to make an 8x8 valued room. So 12 double height posts, that's 3 packs for a 8x8. (Plus you'll need a 8x8 Roof Platform.)

To make a 12x12 vaulted room requires 4 more floors with 2 double height posts each, so that's 20 posts or 5 sets. And you'll need a DIY 12x12 roof platform, or a way to improvise some columns inside to support smaller platforms.

2 sets only can build up an 8x8 vaulted ceiling room, instead of a 4x4. 3 sets pushes that to a 12x12 room.

-- extenal patio or courtyard using short posts and ladders/bannisters

there's probably more... :)
Crap now you're making me want to get 2 of these add-ons.... :/
Ha... I'm at two, wavering on three.

KS4 - Stone Advanced Builders Set

I am planning to add one of these to my PM when it is opened. However, can any of you who are better at visualizing/architectural design/planning, help me to understand what are some uses/builds one could do with this set?

I have an CBS Empire already, and will have a Citadel, Watchtower etc. etc. Help?

Thanks.
