Is there a way to join a corridor with a room corn 1 Year, 8 Months ago  
Assuming say a 30’ x 30’ room, what pieces to I need to join a normal corridor at the corner of a room (corridor attaching at right-angle)?
Without the slight narrowing where the room and corridor join. Or is that just the way it is?

New to DF.

At the corner you could use a half sized diagnal floor tile(came in the fantasy starter set only) and it will match up perfectly with a
regular sized passage piece. I thought you might need the narrow passage
conversion piece but I just checked to make sure. The narrow passage conversion does give you other options though.

I think jls304's solution involves the corridor reaching the room at a 45 degrees angle. For connecting your corridor to your room at a perpendicular angle, you have a few options available, all of them involving the use of different pieces from either the Advanced Builder or Advanced Builder Set II.

jls, I can't envision your solution. Can you take a pic of it, or do what I did below, used TileSystem?

Is this an option?

I got it wrong. You don't need advanced pieces at all:

To me, this suggests two possible pieces for the next Advanced Builer set.

Expanded Floor Straight Wall and Expanded Floor Corner.

Thanks for the info.

jls has expanded my understanding of connections options, while giving me an excuse to buy more DF sets :)

bio, nice literal ‘outside the box’ work-around to my particular conundrum.

I plan to play and map out Old school AD&D modules, and would like to be as true the original plan as possible.
From looking at some of the mapping from that era, it does look like squared paper was either incredibly rare/expensive, or it was a TSR design team challenge to see who could get the most complex maze in the smallest space.

I underestimated narrow passages for a long time but now I love them.
