I'd also like more banks packs, especially 2x2 pieces.

Edit: I see in the KS Update for day 6 does contain a graphic for a Lava Stone Banks pack. I'm happy with that.
DF are pretty good at reacting to backers wishes if its sensible for them to do so.

After studying the pieces, I’d love a way to get more of the Magma River Transition piece (KS6.66 to negative space). Currently the only way to get it is as part of the Features Pack or the Mega Pack.

Although I appreciate Nate’s enthusiasm, I really don’t need more lavafalls or lava end pieces...

Id like to try to build a lava river descending in stages (like river rapids). I’d like at least 3-4 of the transition pieces....

I want a banks mega pack too

Image

I am going to want some to use to surround tiles. The photo is pre Street set.

Image

Remember that there are other options when deciding how much coverage you need. If you have sewers or mountain sets you can use them.

Image

I like to put the sewer at the edge of the table so that I can more easily remove the cover. You could use the Magma instead of river tiles.

Image

You cold use the Magma river instead of the culverts. The 8 by 8s were not available when I built this table.

Image

Using the MT and cave riser sets will be a good option for the Castle Moats. The Tab wall sets will work well too.

Image

The cave set risers with the sewer set.

We have lots of options now. I do not think I need 84 inches of straight banks for 48 inches of magma river. Some 8 by 8 mountain floors will go a long way.

Image

I am going to want a lava moat for the Wizard tower. It will need to be surrounded by banks when I use it with a matt.

Wish we could get the Trifecta Floors with the T-Walls as a separate pack, ;)

I've been reminded in this KS more than anything, that what looks "small" and "limiting" on my computer screen is 2+ hours of combat encounters moving at maximum 3 + 8 year old kid speed (let alone adults if you throw in puzzles and traps to slow them down). I agree that the 3rd Layer of Hell is a really good "more than too much" pledge once you think about how much table it covers in a very specialized terrain.

Much like caverns, I expect banks are really the standout piece that will break banks and we will regret not getting more of -- not the fancy lava river straights, not step walls, but banks that give you negative space AND a little vertical in your build.

I'm really impressed with the transition pictures in Update 10. Throwing a few 'splotches' of lava pieces throughout a standard caverns build looks ...well, amazing. I imagine the reverse would be true, as well.
