I love electric trains... probably for similar reasons I love DF. It creates a whole new world.. And the great things about trains is they move on their own...and other things move.. like gates and such...

Well, I saw the yansolo electric torches...

It got me thinking.. maybe DF should do a limited edition electric set. each piece would be powered in some way. The lights would be just the start.... one could build electric ran traps.

Or perhaps, along the lines of a train set..a DF mining train set, where the track is built into the pieces, and a car can run along the track. Perhaps an electric car! Oh... I'm getting all psyched...

Add D20 rules for cart attack

Well.. other ideas...
magic doors.... levitating platforms that move made of clear plastic.. put things on them to create the illusion of floating...

Anyhow... what do you think....
I am asking 2 different questions...
Is it feasible?
Is it wanted?

Feel free to make suggestions

Hey Celtchief,

I have to say that from a "Kewl" factor place I'd love too see and play with such a set, especially Elec. traps! Hovering platforms and so on...

From a developmental perspective, I have to say that there are other things I'd prefer to see first such as Sci-Fi theme packs, more Fantasy theme packs and so on... The set (Or concepts really), you describe reminds me of the debate about the Gladitorial Arena, which was an awesome concept, but not cost effective considering that it would be a high priced very specialized item...

I agree that DF should not start this project till it ties up some loose ends, but 5 years from now DF may be wondering whats the next big WOW thing, and I think electricity....
And I don't think it would be HUGELY expensive added onto the current price...
Running electric track and such for a DF mine would not be bad at all... trains are not too expensive....

No..I think the electricity thing for traps too could be done without a huge markup.. and I think the wow factor would be worth what the mark up would be....

But let me just say, thanks for posting SOME response MLV!

N-gauge would probably be the easiest to find for mine track, but Z-gauge would be better. Problem would be finding or making rolling stock and prime movers for a mine in Z-scale and converting it for S-scale, which is the approximate scale of 25-28mm minatures.

Good Luck!
