Ha!... it looks like I'm a bit behind. Sometimes it's best to be in Valoria (who am I kidding, it's always best to be there!) in order to keep up with things. It looks like I'm behind a bit on the machinations of the evil Zaltar and his henchmen (and women), including that diabolically devious Nate!

Ok, so put me at around 70-80% knowing what the hell is going on (my wife might put me at 50% or lower...)

And I suspect there is something hidden in Nate's cryptic response but I'm not clever enough to decipher it.

There will be several pieces to allow integration with existing terrain.

One of them is a showstopper... :P

On second thought, it may be difficult to do that for towers since you wouldn't necessarily know where someone would lay down the tower... so do you make circular edge pieces for the sidewalks only or also need to do it for the roads? What about in the future when new tiles are introduced?... do you then have to consider circular filler pieces for each of those new terrain pieces? What if the tower edge spans two different types of terrain?...

Edit, Edit: Ok, scrap that. I have a codex to read this weekend... :?
Edit: I remember now. I had to go and check out one of the resources we have to keep everything straight and organized (see, it actually helped!). That tower should be sitting on the sidewalk/cobblestone tile as it normally would, just like it looks in the picture.

Now, speculate away, but above all, have fun and enjoy the new bean!... it's just the tip of the bean hill! :-D

I was down in November at the beginning of sculpting and although the team have venues/ways to keep in communication, there's so much stuff being communicated behind the scenes right now that I'm not up on everything. .. maybe like 80-90%...

That being said, I wouldn't at all be surprised if there was a piece to address the curved shape of the tower... with all the planning and iterations of mock-ups that have been done for this KS I can say that A LOT of consideration has gone into every aspect of KS4, so far.

Sorry for the non-answer... but it's a good question.
