Lost Pict,

One of the Wall Sections in the Next Sci-Fi set is a "Port-hole" sort of Affair... I Thought it should have a Design Similar to the Soor ways, and allow for things like Iris, or Force Fields to slide in From the Top, so that they Could be Open or Closed...

MLV;


I agree with your Arguments about Passages, and would add Further that the Lack of "Doors" set into the Passage Pieces is Very Limiting... On the Flipside of Course is that DF is Beautiful... So If there is Space permiting, and you Design the Dungeon Appropriately to support Corridors... Well... It can be Kewl to have Areas of a Dungeon Separated by Lots of Long Corridor... From a Practical perspective Though I am right there with you, fact is My Table at Home can not compete with a Giant Game Table that can Support Large Separated Dungeon Locations...

Brace yourself; When I wanted more flex in my dungeon regarding passages, I took a 'T' intersection passage and CUT OFF THE 'T'!
Yes, that's right, I took a T and made a straight passage with a HOLE in the side!!

:shock: EEEK!! :shock:

But ya know what? it makes a GREAT spot for a standard-width doorway, into ANY room I want in there!

Yeah, at first the idea FREAKED me out, too. MUTILATING a $10 DF piece; wow. And, the floor space isn't EXACTLY even, when fitting the standard 2x2 floor tiles in.

But it WORKS. :D

And that's what counts, isn't it?

See YA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (falls into lava pit, screaming) :twisted:

JKratzer,

Hey You Have any Pictures of that? I Would Also Like to Know the Means By Which Said Mutilation Was Achieved... Any Craumbling?

MLV,

Believe it or not, all I did was hit it with an old Dremel jig saw (the stationary one with the deep arm), then clean it up a little bit with a file.
NOT ONE BIT of resin crumbling...Jeff & Stefan have set up a PREMIUM casting agreement with the Chinese (but then, we knew that).

It yields a 6" long passage with a giant 2" hole in one side; perfect for standard doors.

Now you've got me thinking about doing it to a 4-way passage intersection!

AAARRRGGGHH!!! :P :P

Oh, the resin dust, the resin dust!

Put your mask on, Dr. Smith!! :P

Jim,

Oh Yes, The 4 Way would be Aswesome Especially for Inns and the Like Where one Might Expect Rooms to be Across from One Another... Good Thinking... And Of Course I Still would love to See Pics of these in Action...
