I support the validity of Harneloot's choice.

If you never use Set A without Set B, then Set B is just as useful as Set A. If you use Set B in conjunction with Sets A, C, and D, then Set B is more useful than any of the others, even if you never use Set B by itself.

I don't necessarily agree with the choice itself, but it is just as valid an answer as any other.

hmm Your propositions logically have some weakness..
what is more useful at lunch?
I think normally you never eat a steak or Spaghetti without a fork..but at lunch is more useful to have a fork or to have the food?
the fork/ABS set is an useful tool, but is not the most useful thing on the table, due to the fact that alone is useless!

and is not always true that you always must use set B with set A(I did not even have an ABS set! I have just found 2-3 pieces on ebay).
neglecting bizarre setups, you will have pratically always a SET A with all setups with SET B,and you can have setups with SET A without SET B.
and when you use set B, with C,D etc, you are again using set A.

If P then Q?

NO!

Magic trumps logic, and each is open to interpret the question, or the game, or the design of DF layouts as they see fit!

ABS for the WIN!!!

Yeah, but who has only one set of DF?

Nobody, at least not for long. DF is like Lay's Potato chips in that regard....you cannot stop at just one.

I can see the argument for the Advanced builder being the most useful out of the sets he has, as they makes more designs available.

For me, the basic sets I think are probably the most useful of the ones I own.

And yes, who only owns one set?? not many people.. and not for long. They either decide its too pricy or they get more. Usually the latter based on my experience.

We all know that DF is not cheap. Its a pricy item to make and the modelling/design time etc is high. Also its not a mass market item so the costs have to be bourne by less customers. That said, is it worth it?

For me.. as current UK GBP prices, its starting to approach the point where, it is nearly too much. I realise part of this is down to the world ecanomics etc. But when its starting to work out around £7 an individual piece I can see why its not more popular.

That said, I still genuinely enjoy my DF sets. I don't use them as often as I have, but they are very durable and will last you years.
So I look on each set as an investment in my own enjoyment.

It does mean though, I look very carefully as which sets to buy more of.
