+34 to Forest Banks

Wanting 6", 3" and 2" banks more maximum flexibility and variation (possibly not the 6") with 2 sculpts of each length straight and more convex corners than concave.

Assuming corner sculpts of the same footprint of Escarpments (no overlap on the straight edges) So minimum is pack content should be:

12 x 2" or 8 x 3" straights - (2 sculpts)
4 x Convex
1 x Concave

This allows one 'island' forest tile to be placed on a mat.
We think 1 Concave is enough assuming its for use when adding other forest tiles that could be connected but staggered (less than the full 6" edge are connected).

would love forest banks too +1, the jagged edges on the forest tiles hurts my eyes :) with so much beauty elsewhere. Otherwise i will buy a few more caverns banks/trifecta packs.

I already have docks. I think we agree that ledge/banks are as necessary for water as for trees.Jeff pointed out that the small tiles are less cost effective than the large.
hmmm... i wonder why?

I was under the impression that they could gang a lot more small tiles into one mold - so i kinda figured it would even out or even work out better to make small tiles (as you will make more impressions of each for equivalent coverage) - makes my brain hurt - I'm glad Jay has to figure all this out and not me ;)
Higher labor cost handling the bit as I understand it.

I got one set of the beach tiles and like them a lot. I also got the docks, so no docks for me this time around.

I want to see some photos of the scatter terrain bases.

You're welcome. I just went for docks and beaches since those were not readily available elsewhere in this kind of form factor. I have some resin docks and footbridges, but wanted something that could mesh with DF a little better.

I know some of us kinda forced another KS to create some banked tiles for their Beach tiles.
Gentle persuasion ;)
Gentle persistent persuasion...not unlike certain water tile advocates 8-)
