This is what we think.
We find it strange to want lava sculpts in regular cavern (CD).
So thinking about this …..
This feels like it is a reality v aesthetics debate and as we are making it up with our table top terrain, you can go against reality and go for more aesthetic looks which allows for much more seamless reuse; such as using pieces that match CD caverns.
In reality a water cavern is going to look different to a dry cavern, both are going to look different to a magma cavern.
Many backers/players don’t care about this, which is fair, they want pieces that match previous purchases and so look seamless and can be retasked, CD cavern sculpts can be used in Lava builds with no noticeable change.
This makes sense from a cost and playability point of view. Few players are going to turn around and say well this cavern should be blacker with all this lava and ash.
We get that DF would however make the environment as realistic or as standout as possible, some want to see that they are entering a lava cavern rather then a regular one.
Apologies for the rambling, we kinda wanted to see why backers want CD caverns to look the same as Lava caverns, makes some sense now
We don’t have CD caverns and have no intention to get any lava caverns just some sculpts we can use overground.
