Q: Do any pieces contain more than one anchor magnet slot? If so, which ones?

A: Some pieces will have multiple anchors. Probably anything 2x4 or larger. We're still experimenting.

Q: Are we saying that "magnetic" DOES mean that you can attach magnetic stuff (traps etc) to the walls? Or are they underside only for attaching to the acid bath type stuff?

A: The magnet icon denotes magnet walls and accessories.

The Anchor Magnets (used for affixing the pieces to the Terrain Trays) need an icon. We're working on it. Currently we don't indicate on the graphics which pieces are Anchor Magnet compatible.

Q: With the proliferation of magnetized wall pieces, is there a way to visually distinguish a regular wall piece from the similar magnetized wall piece?

A: Some of the magnetic pieces have different sculpts. The ones that don't will be clearly marked on he bottom with a bright red symbol.

Q: do you think the magnets will be able to be bought in an add-on as it would be nice to go back and add them to old sets. drill out the bottom and glue them in so they can go with the new system.

A: the anchor magnets are available ONLY as an add-on. The KS sets don't come with them by default.

Q/A - Magnets

Post by JenneyOC » Sun Jun 18, 2017 10:26 pm

Q: Do floors have magnets as well?

A: there are "anchor ports" on the bottoms of the basic walls/floors for adding magnets. You can add a magnet and secure it with a gasket.

-----

Q: Can you new mag kits be easily retrofitted to KS I and II pieces ?

A: Not easily. The old pieces won’t have the necessary anchor holes to hold the magnets. So you would have to create the holes yourselves on the older pieces.

UPDATE: Our resident LED Expert Josh has a forum thread on retrofitting legacy DF pieces with anchor magnets.

Q; Will the pieces in set levels X through DoD have the magnetic anchor magnets included? Will it just be the pieces in the Acid bath and Lava chambers? Do we have to buy them extra no matter what?

A: All the magnetic anchor pieces are optional. They will fit into as many pieces as we are able to cast with the requiste holes on the underside of the piece. Some smaller pieces, for example can’t accommodate them. Unfortunately, all mangetic upgrade will be paid, they are not included. We just couldn’t since it would have driven the price up for everyone, whether they wanted the magnets or not.
