Really like the filler piece idea on the resin cavern alcove! Wish I had a few of those to better integrate that piece into the middle a large cavern layout. Nicely done, as always!
Agreed. Those are great and I'd love to have some.

Here is the pictures of the Wood Filler Floor piece I made for the 4x4 Resin Cavern Curved Walls along with a
KS-1 Corner Filler Floor Piece.

I built this layout with 2x2 Dwarvenite Floor Tiles for the color contrast in the pictures.

I Also did some Wood Floor Filler Pieces for the Resin Cavern Alcoves -

So, after looking at the KS-4 page again, I discovered there might be a flaw to my idea for one filler piece.
I forgot the center of the Tower Floor is a whole circle or a Pac-Man type piece for the 4" Towers. This means we might need a new inner floor along with the new 4x4 outer filler. This might be asking too much, although the Pac-Man floor piece would work if you wanted 270 degrees of wall and the whole circle will satisfy a 360 degree wall.

Here is a sketch of the original idea, only representing a quarter of the wall

Then I blew this sketch out to show the need to create an inner floor piece to go with the 90 degree 4x4 outer filler.

Note - I went with 4x4 instead of 3x3, because the standard Game Tiles don't really have a 1x2 and 1x1 floor piece yet, unless the sewer floors are used. But then the look is a bit different.

As I stated before, this will become much easier to figure out once the tower walls and floors are in my hands. I only hope the KS-5 hasn't finished by then. ;)


EDIT - I changed the font color. because the black background seems to be back again on these longer posts.

This is meant for a single story 14" diameter round room. The curved pieces can also be used in other interesting ways:

I would like a large circular room. Here is a good example:

Is this just a single story of a large tower from KS4? Or are you talking bigger?

I could do without a large circular room as it might be a little too niche for my dungeons. That said, if they made the large circular room with free standing walls, I'd definitely be more on board and could do a lot more with that.

I would also like the filler floor pieces for the back side of a 6" round wall to use them inside a dungeon.
Like the little corner filler piece with round corner walls from KS#1, but larger.
I think I like this, if I know what you're talking about. Have a particular idea in mind? Even one of your famous drawing?
Once the towers get here it might be easier to convey my idea. It will really depend on how well the tower floors with their walls attached integrate into a "dungeon build".

I was sadly not able to buy any Castle items last KS-4, but I did buy the towers in hopes of using them within a single layer dungeon or stone CBS building (not just a multi-layer tower) with a larger curved room (like the Resin Cavern round Corner 4x4 pieces). But I also wouldn't necessarily always want those larger rooms on the outside of a build, but placed within the floor space. I made some 4x4 corner floors out of wood a decade ago to fit the backside of those cavern curves to use inside a large cavern. It would be nice to do this in a dungeon setting.

I'll try to sketch something up later and get it on the Forum in a day or two. I'll also snap some shots of the Cavern Corner with my home made pieces since D.F. never made those. Just mare ways to use the pieces.

Ya, I like that idea. Negative space pieces would nice in general. Some broken floor pieces would be nice to make a collapsed floor or pit section.
