I hadn't seen any updates on the new Sci-fi set in a while. Any more hints you can give on when they will be available? How about any other sets in the works? I'm hoping to get my Economic Stimulus payment from Uncle Sam and would like to do my part to help our economy by buying DF goodies! :-)

My sets: 20x Sci-fi starters, 7x Alpha's, 3x Gamma's, 4x Beta's, 6x Passage; 3x ROTA, 3x ROTA II; and more Dungeon and Caverns sets than I feel like counting (or want my wife counting).

Seriously! I believe we asked about this a few weeks ago, maybe even more -- we really want some info!

I understand that it can sometimes take a long time to develop sets, but as many of us have said in the past, I think it would be good for DF if there was at least a steady stream of INFORMATION. Controlling and ensuring a steady stream of new product is ideal, of course, to make a business stable, but that may be asking too much all things considered. But a steady stream of information, updates every two months, should be possible -- even if the update is "no new news! still working!"

Remember, the more time that passes with absolutely no movement at all on the DF front, the more time you give your customers to forget you exist and move on. Some of us diehards will of course always be around, but you don't want to alienate those on the fringe, or new customers.

Just some friendly unsolicited advice! I am one-third of a lawyer, you know (at least I will be when I finish this last exam and can say goodbye to my first year of law school....)

We were hoping to release something sooner but unfortunately some things weren't worked out well enough...We should get a container with the long awaited Sci-Fi sets just in time for Gen Con in August. Should be the accessory Sci-Fi Set and another New Set which is similar to a sort of Advanced builder type set. See Below:

OLD SCHOOL DUNGEON FANS:
The Classic Dungeon setting had been neglected for quite some time so we had to spread some love there...this is the kind of Set that won't jump out at you from the pictures but that will allow the cerebral builders to have a field day. It's not glamorous, but when you have it and use it, you will see that it's really kool in terms of what it will allow you to do with some dull area's of your dungeon.......


SCI-FI FANS:
I also really hope the Sci-Fi Set does well enough to allow us to release a follow up which could then be released for Christmas as well, most of those pieces are done and almost made it into one colossal set. Because we had to further adjust some of the pieces, we decided to break it up, design even more pieces and hope to release a second sci-fi set later under the conditions that the first one sells O.K. Even If it sells out, it won't be a huge money maker because it costs SO much to produce but basically I feel that I owe it to the Sci-Fi group to round out the series a little better. I even dream that it will help to invigorate the line as a whole. There is something really kool about futuristic props/furniture but it is SO hard to design because unlike older things that you can just research these are things that take more imagination and of course, everyone has different idea's of what it should look like. The whole trick is in making something that you hope everyone will like because it looks like something they have seen in movies or TV, while at the same time (this is the fun part) trying to add something of your own vision to it.

So we should have another round of goodies done for Christmas, the second Sci-Fi (fingers crossed) something that I am currently sculpting, and something that Jeff is madly and lovingly working on.

Hope I haven't spilled too many beans here....

Thank you for the update Stefan! You didn't spill too many beans; just enough to keep me satisfied for the big surprise come August. I eagerly await both the sci-fi set and the "old school" set. Good stuff! Thanks for sharing.

I also forgot to mention that in the new container will be a new and improved larger Room Set (no Bow Ties, more pieces)

I can't wait for the basic building block set.

I also can't wait for the Sewer Set... hint hint, but I realize that having too many sets in the works would be a drain on your resources.

AGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!
August, (so I have to wait through May, June, July and into August....) sigh at least it will give me time to gather the funds to try to put a dent into the "sell out". Depending on the composition i know i want at least 4 sets, to maybe more, this is something i have just Sooooo wanted a way to flesh out my Star Wars adventures....

I hope it does give the series a shot in the arm, i really like, and find it great series, that is only really missing some great addons to flesh out the areas....

Interesting hints on the Advanced Builder 2 set.....anyone care to speculate on what might be included?

I'll guess a new stairway and maybe some kind of free standing wall like the River set has?

Excellent. Thanks, Stefan, for the update. It is much appreciated. Even tiny tid-bits of information once in a while do a great deal to whip up interest on my part. If nothing else, it lets your fans know that somewhere out there the gears are turning, and DF will sooner or later wow us again with an incredible new product.

I guess floor pieces to fill in holes left by corridors are indeed part of it.
I've just made some - ready to post pictures and scoop Stefan again.
No, no - just joking Stefan. Yes I made some and just regard these as non-sexy but very
useful. They would be fitting for such a set.
and if I know ahead what you do I won't bother making them myself

WAIT A MINUTE!!!!!

Stefan, it SOUNDED like you were saying the 'sort of advanced builder set' is a SCI-FI set!!!
PLEASE correct me if I'm wrong here!!
Because if I'm RIGHT, I just jumped back into DF in a BIG SPLASH, where I had almost retired my collection to the attic for long-term storage!

YEE-HAH!!
