TOPIC: More Lava!
#7473
More Lava! 9 Years, 6 Months ago  
I was looking at the floor set the other day, and thinking about how great the lava pool looks. How great would it be if there were rivers of lava flowing through our caverns, bright pools of the stuff bubbling up in choice places and showing through the cracks between the floor tiles?

Ah, how beautiful it would be. We need more lava pieces!

You know, I wasn't even thinking about Mustafar (I'm sort of D&D-centric in my DF thought process.)

But yeah, it would be great for sci-fi as well as fantasy. Let's face it: lava is sexy.

Just the opposite, I'm Sci-Fi centric, but the caves are the only "fantasy" line i have bought because they really can work for either line.

lava good in caves...

Actually, any set could be used for sci-fi gaming, including the Fantasy sets. Just think of rough-hewn underground corridors beneath the more "techy" upper levels. It would be cool if DF came out with some conversion pieces that had sci-fi screens or access panels set into the fantasy walls to tie it all together. That way, sci-fi gamers would find more utility in existing product lines.

Anyway, back to the lava (mmm....lava...)

Maybe once (if) the cavern lake and cavern river sets come out, they'll consider doing lava versions of those sets. I also really like the idea of lava in the cracks between floor tiles.

Oh, and ice caverns. Ska, you can think Wampa lair, and I'll think Frost Giant hideout. :)

Well... i said i didn't Buy any of the Fantasy except for the Caves, on of the guys in the SW group already had the Fantasy line, and it was used just two weeks ago, it was an old Trandaoshan Hunting lodge, partly built into the side of a hill. The undergorund, hill part was done in Fantasy, mainly becuase i am running out of Sci Fi walls!

but it also fit ;)

But yeah, lava... i have been eyeing that fantasy floor set, if just for the spiffy bits like that the Pentagram could work as vaguley Sith or something... :), but the Bow ties really detract when put with the "smooth lines" of the edges in the Sci-fi...

I Feel Like an Idiot For Not Thinking in Terms of Lava Flows for the Caverns... Maybe WillyPold Will Make Some Nifty Lava Pieces... (Use the Same Molds as the Other River Stuff He Is Doing)?

Anyway... Good Idea... Though My Guess is that If They Did Lava it Might Be in Connection to D.O.E.? Since Den of Evil Sounds So Diablo-esque, Which Could Definately Have Some Lava Themes...

I'd much rather see lava "flow" pieces added to the cavernous line, and lava "cracks" added to the standard line, than start mixing and matching floor styles. As pretty as the new set is, I'd rather devote my limited resources to expanding the sets I have, than have to buy an entire new line to accomodate a particular accessory.

I have been interested to do Lava and Ice in Caverns for quite a while... but had to get the Rivers and Lakes done first. Because we are doing very well so far with the pre-orders of Rivers I am pretty sure there is some Fire and Ice in the future of the Caves...

Ooh! Maybe they could add ice floes and burning oil slicks to the upcoming underground lake set! Or as part of a water-based wicked additions set.

GS!

Chill out! Just be cool, and Stefan will be okay.
If you jump up and down and generate all that heat, Stefan & Jeff will have to ice your entire program.
You KNOW they'll create something really slick when they finish plowing through the backlog of orders and ideas.

All right, I'll behave. No more puns - for a while.

Sorry, but I couldn't resist . . . no traction.

Stop HITTING me like that!

Yeah, I think I'd like some ice, too, especially . . . no, never mind, I really can't do that one! :lol: :lol:

See ya!
