What if anything was unique about Octagonal Room set? 10 Years, 2 Months ago  
I'm trying to decide whether to buy the Octagonal Room set (some are still for sale by some vendors) or just buy a different set and some diagonal wall pieces. Does the Octagonal Room set have anything unique that cannot be replicated with other pieces other than the diagonal wall pieces? Are the diagonal wall pieces available on their own the same as those that come with the Oct. room set?

Nothing unique in itself. There are actually more walls and floor than diagonal walls and 2 doors. It is a good mix for making Octagonal Rooms though and gives me extra walls, doors and floors. Something there never seems to be enough of! I also have the Diagonal Wall set with 25 diagonal walls.

The Diagonal Walls do Allow for "Cheap" extra Corners... But Until DF releases the New and Highly anticipated triangular Floor Pieces to Fill the Gaps they are Limited... And As You have probably read before, I Love Larger Floor Pieces Over lots of tiny 2x2 Floors... So in my Less than humble opinion, it is Probably OK that this set is no longer in Production, and Unless you Can Find them Cheap I think that you would Do well to Figure out More Specifically What types of Rooms you will be Making and By as Piecemeal Needed... Also it seems there is Talk of Re-releases of Smaller "Cheaper" Versions of Some of the Existing Types of Sets? So Maybe there will be a $50.00 Diagonal Set Some Day? Also New Doors Look way Better so Maybe that in itself is worth waiting For...

Thanks for the responses. I think for now I'll get the cavernous passages instead of the octagonal room set I saw. I just wanted to make sure if I let the octagonal room go, I won't be regretting it if it had some piece I later thought was final since it has been discontinued. As long as I can get more diagonal wall pieces in the future I guess I'll be fine.

Good choice, but I find lots of uses for diagonal walls. You might consider getting a couple of sets of four.

I Will Have More Use for them myself once the Triangular Floors are Available...

I will definitely get the triangular pieces, but still have a lot of rooms and angled passages that use them. If you use a floor piece with the diagonal pieces in between they make a decent width corridor.

I Agree, I am not so Pleased with the Little "Missing" potions of the Walls which are Created by the Angled Walls... They Meet in a Point leazving a Sort of Gap... I Know it is Anal However it Bugs me... I Mentioned in a Previous Post that I think it would be Kewl to have a "Special" Diagonal Floor Piece specifically designed to fit into a Diagonal Corridor that had a 2" tall Slender Column on Two Opposing Corners Specifically to Fill the Gap... I Really Hope that they Release Sets of the Triangular Floors, because I would be hesitant to Buy a Bunch of Fantasy starter sets for the Floors Alone...

I posted up a pic from the construction kit, but it is quite skewed. Should give the idea though I hope.

That little bit doesn't really bug me. I make some really strange rooms sometimes. If there is a big crack in the floor, well it is a crevace! Think of them as holes for the players to trip on or to hide stuff!
