TOPIC: Rooms: Sewer

I had a thought about rounded passages.

Instead of creating a new line of passages and walls with rounded stonework, what if there were a set of accessory pieces that you could put down against the walls of the Fantasy line? In cross-section, the pieces would look like a right triangle with a convex-curved hypotenuse -- each straight side would be a half inch or a full inch long. I THINK only three configurations would be necessary -- straight, inside corner, and outside corner.

The advantage, in my opinion, is that we get the "bottom" part of the curve that describes the "pipe" feeling of a sewer, but we don't have to contend with any overhang or obscuring from the "top" part of the curve. Plus, the pieces are smaller than a full wall-and-floor piece BUT are fully compatible with our Fantasy line sets.

The big question in my mind is what texture these pieces should be. I like the idea of red bricks, although large smooth blocks also appeal.

What do y'all think? Is it a hit or a miss?

Jack -

Keep the 'round-offs' as dressed stone; it will fit with the fantasy line better.
Also, you forgot one pair; CURVES, insides and outsides. Remember, we DO have curved walls and corners.
Otherwise, a GREAT idea, and a LOT cheaper for DF AND US!

See ya!

A new (round) drain would be great, but the (rectangular) "Slave Pit" pieces from Fantasy Floors will do in a pinch.

Pipes and valves are also a good idea. So good, in fact, that they should be a Room set unto themselves. That thread will come.

The pipes sounds like it would be a great SciFi set too. A manhole removable cover? with the first rung of the latter going down would be very nice. All great ideas I hope they take....
