It will be interesting to see how well a multi-tier lava flow stacks together with a few of those wide lava flows.

That build looks like 6.66 is more geared toward underground that surface, but hopefully can do both.

DF is getting more and more tech. Maybe they will create the LCD screen tile I prototyped. It would be great for swirling lava, whirl pools, pit traps with effects, sharks, monsters busting up through the tile, writhing bug piles, animated portals, etc.
I would like to hear more about it.
Here's the post of it in action. Needs a slightly bigger LCD screen. I was unable to find one bigger that fit in a 2x2 tile. Still searching for one.

I also wish they would make a tile that your cell phone could sit underneath and an app with custom DF animations to choose from. Maybe even sound. Crackly fiery sloshy noises for a lava whirlpool for example....

Another thing yet to be mentioned is dimensions of the light box and if you have a build that doesn't cover it entirely.

I think it would be cool if DF could create 4x4 light boxes that magnetically snap together and when joined together share power. IE: have a master "power" box and any 4x4 attached to it is powered by it. Like a grid of 4x4 squares you can build on. This way you could make a small lighted area or a big one, and it could break down for storage.
Loving the idea of magnetically connected lightboxes :)

4x4 seems a sweet spot on dimensions, power would still be a major issue.

GameFX had a lot of decisions to make about power with a nmber of potential solutions. Batteries would be our preferred method and is in keeping with other 'powered' DF sculpts. Though would not be too adverse to a volcano or lava falls containg a rechargeable power pack :)

I think this is the closest pic we have to natural light.

I have wired things for model RailRoad. I think batteries are better for war games.
