Q: When will we get water versions of these magma rivers?
A: Unfortunately it will not be during this KSer, but that is a really interesting idea for down the road.
Q: Wish List: Some transition wall and floor pieces that start out regular cavern gray but transition to charred black. So I could run a lava/magma river down the middle of a regular cavern (or mountain, I guess) and have it look like the lava has fried the edges. Is this a possibility?
A: Transitions are a great idea, so great that we decided to make it happen. Please see the transition packs that are now available.
Q: Is the Hellsgate planned to be a single piece, or will it perhaps be a separate front and back half, like the KS4 gate
A: Check out the Hellsgate walkthrough for all your hellsgate questions.
Q: Could you throw three or four diagonal magma rivers in a row and post picture from above?
A: Check out the livestream from 6/26 at the 1:23:19 mark.
You will see a good overhead view of just this request.
Q: Just wondering if we are going to get an "all lava" floor piece. I'd like to be able to build out a larger pool effect than just the river....
A: unfortunately that is not on our list of sculpts for this KSer. This is a perfect usage of the lava phantasmal filter.
A: (Elye) larger areas are probably best handled using negative space builds: you can cover much more real estate with greater versatility that way. Also, an all lava floor piece would require other additional pieces to be usable at all; a regular river tile can't transition directly into it.
Q: I don't know if this has been discussed. Normally I love passages, but I am unsure how to get light to these with panels being so much wider. Can we get some examples on how to do this effectively?
A: (Elye) You'd probably want to cover the exposed parts of the panel (on either side of the passages you're lighting) with black cloth, construction paper, or the like. Would be a good thing to demo, I'll mention it to the team.
Q: how large is the "Water Caverns transition river - lava" piece (BK610)? it's hard to discern from the picture...
A: 2" x 6" Two inches by Six Inches.
A: (backer) Keep in mind that because of the lovely scale differences between inside and outside Dwarven Forge pieces... it may be 50mm x 100mm instead of inches.
Q: Does anyone know if the Dead End Passage piece will appear in any add-on pack? According to my spreadsheet, it's the only Caverns Deep piece that's not accounted for in any of the lava add-on packs.
A: Not sure if this piece will show up or not, it is not
Q: Has DF put any thought into making a dead-end magma river sculpt? There really is no elegant way to end a magma flow in the middle of a setup. You can enter(waterfall or wall end) or exit(wall end) but no nice way to end a flow. Perhaps you could transition to a small negative space pool, but thats a little clunky. All the T intersections are crying out for a dead end.
A: (Elye) We think it will generally look best to transition into a negative space area for a river's end; you can do a relatively small pool that way (if you don't want a larger lake/pool), and it looks like the lava is draining down into a lower area or filling a depression. Alternately, for an active flow, you can use the magma river transition piece for the end of the river where it's spilling out across the ground.
Given the sense of surface movement on the river pieces, having the river stop abruptly in a small area on a single tile would seem a little odd. That said, I'll pall along your request; more options are always good!
Q: Do the rising walls go from 2" up to 4" height, or is it different? And are there any wall pieces that start at 2" height and taper down?
A: Rising Walls don’t go quite to 4” but they do work for smoothing the transition to a second level. Look at the Bestial Cliffs from KS6 for a good example.
Q: Will pedestal of pain be available as an add-on?
A: Yes, coming soon.
Q: Will volcano be available as an add-on?
A: Yes, coming soon
Q: Is the soulgate able to sit over top the KS4 illuminated floors (4x4 with open circle in center)
A: yes it does fit over the illuminated floor.
Q: How big is the tri spire?
A: Footprint is about 2x2 and it is about 4in high
Q: How big are the Ruptured talons?
A: about 3in high and footprint is about a 2x1
Q: Any chance to see a short 2x4 magma river piece?
A: No, no new magma river pieces will be showing up.
Q: Will there be miniatures
A: Yes after 1 Million
Q: what does trifecta mean?
A: Check out the Cavern’s Deep Trifecta Walkthrough Video to get an in-depth explanation of our trifecta system.
