Here are some examples of Beach Tiles I did around 2003 to go with my Master Maze back then.
Not exactly what I might make these days, but they were fun to make then.
Just posting for additional ideas...
Love stuff like this
that takes established products and adapts and mods them - Great work William

kodiakbear - agree with what you say about DF showing off the versatility of KSVI.
In KSV DoD they actually did less showing off than in KSIV Castles where they showed pictures of builds using KSIII CBS items. It was only in some of the Livestream did they start to really show off KSV versatility.
Its good that you point out that there are different camps of backers wanting different things for KSVI. Too often people ask for what they want and don't necessarily consider the wider scope of all backers needs.
So for KSVI I don't care much for caverns, but have found the KSII Water Caverns to be one of my favourite sets for outdoor setups. But I know a lot of KSII backers will want complimentary new Cavern pieces and so I believe DF should look to include those in KSVI.
Having said that, I had no interest in a dungeon in KSV and still dropped 4K on it
I prefer urban environments and would really like Castle and CBS complimentary items from KSVI, but in the last week the thought of a massive modular tree city as captured my imagination and I think, if it can be done, would look totally amazing! the ability to buy a forest in a box (or many white boxes) also has a strong pull.
But as you pointed out what they produce needs to be compatible with existing products. I can see CBS and Castles built around 'A Tree of Life' or a sacred grove. They should be easily used with mountains.
I think DF have a unique problem to reduce the unique piece count from KSV as many backers have requested and yet still provide the variety of encounters they offered in KSVI.
But I also think the solution is in multi environmental pieces with different paint schemes to match the environments offered.
I like the idea of sloping pieces to make use of existing battle mats or offered mats. I put forward a Sea environment as I don't see any need to create specific pieces for it just a different paint job. But for most sea related builds I suspect battle mats would be used. So shoreline sloping pieces would work really nicely and could be used for rivers.
I ordered a ocean mat in a recent KS so I could put my Tower Castle on it.
It will be fascinating to see what DF come up with for KSVI, but I would be a little disappointed if it turned out to be a Cavern only KS like KSV was for dungeons, probably still end up dropping more money than I expect!
