NO, more FANTASY sets and stuff please :P

Actually, I wonder how sales of the various lines compare? How would people rank them in terms of % of DF sales (scaled somehow to take into account how many more sets there are for regular dungeon fantasy).

I actually have no idea but would guess:

1 - Fantasy
2 - Cavern
3 - Sci-Fi
4 - <a href='jumpto.php?<a href='jumpto.php?MBS' title='More about MBS ...' class='wrapped_url'>MBS</a>' title='More about MBS ...' class='wrapped_url'>MBS</a>
5 - DOE

It i think depends on your intrests i know for me my purchases amounts are. 1 - Sci-Fi, 2 - Caverns, 3 - DOE, 4 - MBS< and 5 Fantasy. If you equalize it by # of sets, then DOE and MBS are tied at 2 each of the various sets (DoE has 2 sets so i have 4 of those but only 2 MBS from it's one item). And i personally only 1 set of Fantasy.

What must be kept in mind is that Fantasy and Cavern have been around MUCH longer than any other genre of DF; they have an advantage in variety and longevity.
Sci-Fi, as someone who used to post here said, NEEDS furniture, even more so than ANY genre except MBS. These are the ONLY two genres that MUST be furnished; after all, starships and houses ALWAYS have furniture in them, while dungeons only occasionally, and caverns seldom. And, the dungeon/Medieval Furniture sets already out from DF are sufficient to almost any dungeon except a subterranean fortress - which needs an entirely different type of furniture.
I've been known to preach 'but other makers do furniture' in the past, but more and more, they are falling by the wayside. And most of them are either overseas (which give US the same problems overseas DF customers have) or are NOT prepainted, which is one of the things we LIKE SO MUCH about DF! While I would NOT want to see DF go exclusively furniture for a year or two, I think Stefan & Jeff DO need to shift focus, a little, to what goes INSIDE these wonderful setups we can do with DF.
I read elsewhere from Stefan that there are DoE WALLS under design and/or prototyping (possibly even production, who knows?), but beyond that and the MBS tavern sets, we need to focus on furnishings. The PERCEIVED lack of support - real or imagined - for Sci-Fi has resulted in a lack of purchase; this is a vicious cycle that MUST be broken before it cripples or destroys the Sci-Fi line! ONE good, Stefan-class set of furnishings for Sci-Fi will break that perception - and let's face facts; perceptions are what make or break any retail-funded operation.

That note aside, I am ALSO awaiting the next set of MBS pics, as promised by our peerless, fearless Corporate Big-Wig, Jeff.

Lori, Jeff has taken enough pics of the baby for today; give him back the digital camera so he can take our MBS pics for the month and get our fix.
Then take it back again, so we can get our baby pictures fix for the month; after all, we like babies too!

See ya!

Jim,
Very good points. One of the main failings of the sci fi range is the lack of furnishings. And, like all modern houses/buidlings, a the construction is only a shell, it is what you dress the building in, which makes it unique.

While in dungeons, most walls/rooms look the same after a while, it is the furnishings that make the difference. The availability of set/sci fi dressings may be the difference in the popularity of the line.

I have said before that the wide variation in how people percieve the future may be the problem in creating furnishings for the sci fi line, but hey, it didn't stop DF from envisaging and creating a sci fi set, just go with your vision and we will follow :)
