I was plotting out various plans for the upcoming lake set the other day, and realizing just how tricky it may be for those of us who won't necessarily have 5 lake sets to work with.

A lot of times the problem is going to be running out of banks (not to mention the all-water pieces). If you have a long bank, or a large L-shaped bank, you aren't going to be able to "finish" your lake on the other side.

But then I started thinking about having regular dungeon floor pieces run right up against the pure-water section, or even up against a bank piece.

And that made me think the lake pieces may be really useful for cobbling together a makeshift sewer-like environment.

You could improvise these little "canals" where the floor just ends right at water pieces. With the little moveable pedestals you could even make mooring sections or something like them.

It also makes me think that DF could make a sewer expansion very easily by making just a lot of pure-water pieces, and then some mobile "banks" that could be placed on them to go flush against the regular dungeon floors. You'd get a pretty neat effect, at any rate.

Man, this is something I'm gonna have to try almost immediately when my lake set arrives...

Me too, partner! I've got 3 Lake sets coming myself and I can't wait to experiment a little!

From some of the threads I've seen, a sewer set would be pretty popular. Those murky green lake tiles would be perfect!

Nice idea, L

A sewer set? Popular? According to who? :)

But yeah, the all-water pieces should interface well with all the sets. Makes for interesting possibilities...

I think the Sewer Set should empty right up into the Fantasy Tower Set!!!!

To answer your question Yukon, about a sewer set being popular and by who? The above quote was found to be your response in a previous thread...just in case you needed to be reminded again *laughs*
