OK I missed that. :oops: Why nine?
Makes a 3 tile x 3 tile build, buy a 9 pack of wood and a 9 pack of stone and a set of double post plus what every sets of walls/post you want and you have pieces to build tavern sizes buildings.

Other uses for rectangular wooden and/or stone pieces/slabs:

1) a boardwalk (in front of shops)
2) simple docks
3) a platform in/near the market or square for speakers/auctions/executions
4) plinth or slab/base to place other objects on
5) ramp
6) path in a garden

That's all that comes to mind at the moment...

Like I said in my earlier post, I made some inserts on the cheap, photocopy a floor - cut and glue to a double stack of Foam Core cut to size. Simple. It works great, but doesn't look awesome.

This is going off topic quick: I sort of agree with the call for the basic floor's in some kind of pack. A pack of Advanced Floors would go even further in my books; 4x8, 4x12 sizes. There are those of us who want to build larger floor plans and would like the stability of a solid piece. I have a ton of walls left over all the time, I would like more floors to use up all the walls I have.

Peace

PS. I was serious, I will buy some of the stuff yer making...just send me a private message.

I agree. I am not sure it makes financial sense for anyone. That doesn't stop me from making all kinds of one off conversions.

I like the conversions so far. May I suggest a wooden hatch with a lock. You could make it open and close with wire pins.

My preference would be to get them in Dwarvenite of course, but I doubt it would make any kind of financial sense for DF.

I'll hit the home improvement sotre one of these days.

in the DF store
That would also do the trick.

Once you start building structures larger than 4x4... say, 4x8, L-shaped, 8x8 or larger... then you likely only need one 4x4 stairwell floor per level; maybe two at most. The ratio of stairways to floor pieces is predicated on the base footprint being 4x4. I completely agree with DF doing it this way, but it does mean that when building larger footprints the ratios of regular floor pieces with those having holes does cause problems.
This is especially true of those of us with smaller investments... a "village" doesn't go far. While a rug is a viable solution i really like the idea of a wood/stone plug as appropriate.
