OP: Looks like you have an extra offset by one step in that set up. That does however align the crimson support posts for stairs, but you have a bit more than 180 degrees now which would make lining up the upper floor a pain. So just like we have some curved support blocks for stairways in Castles, we need to get a curved support block for the Grand Stairs at some point. It could also be hollow like some of the other large casts are since that would be a heavy chunk of dwarvenite in one solid brick!

I clearly need to remember to paint all sides of my tower walls now.

One of the first things I did with my stairs, great minds and all that! Sad it doesn't quite rest on the floor pieces, though, and stretches beyond 180 degrees.

It does fit around a 4" tower or 2 rounded KS1 corner tiles. I'm particularly excited that we can do a raised dais with the 4" KS4 tower walls (upside down) with a half round tower floor and these stairs can wrap around them either up towards the middle or down and around from the sides.

Great idea!! As soon as my stairs get here I will try this out!

That's fantastic Law, but now I wish I'd gotten more! Very intuitive thinking there!
