How could I possibly say no to that! So much awesome. I still hope for a better selection of clear tiles.

Yes, but clear is almost mandatory. Better to have portions of it be clear and others not. Want the illusion of depth. Resin works better for this, but I think it could possibly be done as a two part piece, as others have mentioned.

The unpainted open water packs can be painted any way you like. Need a room with marble or granite floors? Obsidian? Paint the tiles however you like.

+1

I'd assume that they can use the same molds with just the other type of plastic.

As I haven't even painted any Caverns stuff including water yet, I'd love to see clear plastic for the water in KS5. Then I can just designate the solid stuff I have for lava and hold off painting water for the new clear stuff. This kind of thing seems like a no-brainer for KS5.
