On the Streets side I am constantly battling a lack of "Turn In" tiles. I'm building 3'x3' layouts for Frostgrave which require limited sightlines, so twisty roads are necessary. I also like cul de sacs, so...

Same thing with Alley Corners. And man do I wish there was an alley T intersection to connect 2 alleys together.

I bet that you could mod something up... that would be really really cool.

You maybe correct since they are sold in 4ea amounts and came as an add-on in equal amounts.

I think they could do it either way, and I have no idea how DF does it. My totally uninformed guess would be the more limited the set, the more likely it is to be a single mold. If the item is being produced in huge numbers, it is probably a separate mold.

So Wicked city would probably be one mold, while the shutters would probably be a separate mold by my logic.

I would really like some inserts that transform the windows into round openings with shutters for the Prancing Pony.

I imagine they will offer new window insert options (maybe even in KS4) which would expand the availability things to fill the windows. But it would be cool to have some packs of whatever is a consensus "typical" window dressing. Open/closed shutters makes the most sense.

So far I see requests for

20 packs of just closed shutter window inserts
20 packs of just open shutter window inserts
Abbey Window Walls
Dwarven Pillars
small half-post and railings
10 Sewer Wall Concave Curve
Offset Window walls (Tudor and stone)
Gargoyle posts

While I can see DF worrying about lowering sales of the sets that some of these are in, for the most part making these items sold in packs would be a good profit for DF.

Example: I am not going to buy huge amounts of sets to get more stutter widow inserts but quite frankly widows with out insets just look unfinished. I would guess that many others would pick up packs so their widows looked finished.

maybe throw a rug over the space, fill the hole first with something else...
