My Tower Concept 4 Years, 8 Months ago  
Hello, I just made some new custom pieces for tower setups.
It is a curved wall with an arc lower than 90°. It makes moreless 80°, so it is not a right angle. The reason is that with an smaller arc, you can use straight walls between the pieces and keep the optical impression of having a circular tower. But you can also use them without any straight walls and still keep the visual impression of having a circular tower.

I don't know if my explanation is clear but here are some picture of what you can make with those customs :

Here is some basic possibilities to create round corridors or rooms :






I also had a small ajustment problem with the 6x6' floor :



In fact the 6x6 floors are a bit greater than 3 x 2x2 floors side by side. So if you use 2x2 floors, there are no more problems




For a tower, you can stack them simply like this. Without any straight walls, it keeps the feeling of a round tower.






And in a matter of modularity, you can make many different setups with straight walls between each piece. And you still have the impression of a round tower.





So with an arc of circle smaller than 90°, you can use those pieces to create towers with a diameter of 8' or 10'

Do you like it ?

:rolleyes: And prior to that, myself, and prior to that otherworld (same link, original thread lost in hack), and so on.

Which has little or nothing to do with Rodenbach's terrific customs, which I'd love to see as part of a future ABS or even a devoted Tower set. I like the 80-degree arc, I like the L-shaped floor inside the arc of the wall, I like that it sticks to the standard floor grid, and I like that it is fully compatible and can be used in a variety of ways.

First rate work, and if you hadn't come out and said it was a custom I'd be demanding to know what new set it came in and how to get it myself!

This is amazing !!: I swear I never saw this post. You write in 2006 EXACTLY what I thought about those last weeks. It seems that we are thinking the same way. So if you have other ideas you really wants to see in real, I can try to concretize it ;)

:cool: I think good ideas keep popping up simply because they are good ideas, and different people will keep coming up with the same good idea until someone actually runs with it and gets recognized for it. This configuration is simple, elegant, and versatile, so it was bound to come around again, but you actually executed the idea so props are due.

Thing is, a year or two from now, somebody else might post a similar thread with the same good idea, and he (or she) will actually have had the same good idea all by themselves, all over again!

Me, I just have lots of ideas. Some of them have been real thudders, but some might have potential. The trick is to tell which ones are which. :lol:

I think this just goes to show that, like windows/gothic archways, Stef could make some $ by making a DF Tower set.

Thats the key right there - uses the standard floor grid! Any way to get it without the gap? Also - Bravo on the paint/color scheme....you REALLY nailed it right on!
