Priorities 4 Years, 6 Months ago  
I've seen a number of posts scattered around a few different threads about what sets people want to see next (or now), and I thought I'd start a thread so we can put our priorities in one place.

Disclaimer: This thread is completely informal and unofficial. Stefan doesn't have to read it, much less pay any attention to it.


I would like to see:
- the third and final RotA set
- another Hellscape set
- diagonal walls (plus?)

Maybe it's because i work for a city as a civil engineer but i put sewers at the top of my wish list. Towers would be second and Streets 3rd. I would like to see DF explore the city life i guess.

Right now, i build WorldWorksGames set to satisfy that need.

Re:Priorities 4 Years, 6 Months ago  
Tough question- what do I want to see next? There are still so many basic sets I don't have, the thought of something brand new is almost daunting. Which is to say nothing of another limited set! I won't put them in any particular order but my top picks are:

Hellscape 2- I know its technically billed as part of the Den of Evil (and would therefore be the 3rd part of that set) but I really see them as separate. Compatible, but separate.
A set with lots of cool doors- double doors, drawbridges and the like
New setting- my pick is either ice caves or forest
Ruins 2
Towers
Whatever the hell Stefan wants to do because I'm sure we'll all eat it up like greedy little pigs

Make something idiot-proof and someone will just turn around and make a better idiot.

Re:Priorities 4 Years, 6 Months ago  
Hmmmm... I think I should go with this list:

1) Doors set.
2) Hellscape Lake set.
3) Spider Web Cavern Additions.
4) Sewers set.
5) Catacombs set (with skulls everywhere, maybe skull floors and even a skull bridge).
6) Deluxe Dungeon Set: Marble / Polished Stone walls with inscriptions/frescos, floors with symbols, checkerboard floors, etc.
7) Ice Cavern Additions.

In fact I don't have any special prefered order for the creation of this sets, I would just love everyone of them!

Re:Priorities 4 Years, 6 Months ago  
1. Arabian nights mbs.
2. Asian style mbs.
3. Sewers!!!
4. Catacombs.
5. Castle set.
6. underwater ruins/cave.
7. Mbs sets based off the more common fantasy races. (dwarf,elf,halfling,drow.)
8. unpainted versions of the classic sets for custom settings.
9. Fantasy floors 2.
10. Door set.
As far as making checker board floors I have made some out of bow tie pieces I've filled in because I'm never able to match the original df colors.

Re:Priorities 4 Years, 6 Months ago  
My view of DF is that the product should cover the basics -basic dungeon design, and at this point it doesn't. Maybe around 70-80%, which is still very good.


Don't get me wrong, I think this stuff is fantastic but there are a few areas which need to be addressed:

1) Doors - This could be addressed in a door set or individual pieces:
Double doors (CRITICAL), ornate doors, Heavy doors (steel or reinforced) and so on.
2) Crypts and Catacomb Set - Basic concept going back to the inception of gaming,
still haven't seen anything (besides the beautiful sarcophagus in the floor set) which
comes close to covering this.
3) Ruins 2 - I think the idea of a ruins set has been overlooked for too long and
I am glad it is being addressed. Good work on the set, it looks great.

Re:Priorities 4 Years, 6 Months ago  
I would like to see:
- the third and final RotA set
- another Hellscape set


I'm totally agreed with that : DF started to launch ROTA gamma and after 2 set and one entrance stopped it. We need straight corridor & corners, T & X intersections, more elements (secret doors etc)

Same for hellscape : 1 set is useless until you have another set with other walls, floors passage etc. Possibility is too limited right now.

The ruin set is a good idea to complete classic dunjeon ok, but we urgently need to complete some universe.

For instance with 3 sets DOE is ok (passages rooms furnitures special pieces etc)
I'm expecting this way of release line from DF.

Re:Priorities 4 Years, 6 Months ago  
Hi all,

I agree with Heroquest. For me Rota set and Hellscape set are not yet completed. It's pity.

If Stephan could create a "Room set Rota", and a " Hellscape passage set", we would have more opportunities. I think that Rota set and Hellscape set are essential sets to create a donjon. But in donjon, as said my friend Heroquest we have corridor, corners, intersections, etc.... Without these parts, it's very difficult to assemble different pieces together...

Soon

My top three:

1. Ruins 2
2. MBS 2 (Gothic/haunted mansion or other "posher" building with carpets and wodden panelling)
3. Narrow cavernous passages
