New Photos of Previously-Shown Sci-Fi Beta Pieces... 9 Years, 2 Months ago  
I took some better photos to show you some of the pieces coming in the Sci-Fi Beta Set (in Feb. 2006). These pieces have been shown before, but these show more details. The set will also include at least one 6" Straight Wall, 6" Passage, and some Curved Floors (handy for putting Curved Corners in the middle of Rooms).

The final contents of the 1-tier, white box set is up in the air, but it will be announced as soon as we know.

Enjoy.

At least the console does not have the 1960s style tubes and conduits on it like the Grendel ones!
I hope that that paint job of the console is not the final one we will be buying!
My wife says the console looks like one of those found in some spacewreck by the heroes of some story.
I agree that it does not have the feel of the rest of SF MM.
So, do we get a sleeker paint job in the Beta set?

So, the 6" wall made it in, eh Jeff?
There will cheering in some towns around the country this next week or so!

Looks like the forcefield has a frame.
What about an alternative standard SF door for the frame?
Please!!
Some of us game in settings that do not have forcefields.

That sounds like the curved floor piece is only a 2" one Jeff.
When will there be larger odd-shaped floor pieces for the "backsides" of the passage pieces?

The Vac-Heads will be glad for the portal wall piece.
Anything special in Beta for the Gro-Pos?

Great, I especialy love the Porthole. Passage will be nice to. Special sections for backing up passages are a great idea for both sci fi and fantasy.

I am Looking Forward to this More and More...

I Mentioned this Before, And I'll Mention it again I am Sure, But I Love the Concept of the Porthole Wall... What I would have liked even more would be the Porthole Wall Designed like the Doors, so that Forcefields, Glass or Plates/Doors could be Dropped in from the Top... Having these Interchangeable would make this Piece Extra Usefull... Don't Get me Wrong, I Love them The way they are too...

I Would Love to see a Pic of the Curved Floors... That was Somthing Very Much missing from the Original MM stuff, and with the Triangular Floors for the Diagonal Walls Will Really Open up the Layout Potential For Sci-Fi...

I am Glad that there are Plans for Themed Add on Packs in Place, because I Like the Computer Console, but would like to see some Variety as well... (And Hopefully the Consoles will be Available as Individuals)?

I am not a Huge Fan of Corridors in General, but I Do Have a Few Sets so the Curved Passage will be a Nice Addition...

The 6" Wall is Probably the Most Useful Part of this Set! I Can Hardly Wait...<Grin>...

After seeing the pics and hearing that DF intends to release new Sci-Fi sets and accessories I have now decided to collect Sci-Fi as well -(in addition to the Fantasy and Cavern genres I am already collecting).

Just thought you'd like to know that this new product and expanded line is creating some new interest in the Sci-Fi series where none previously existed, at least in my case.

Thanks again DF

Originally, I wanted just fantasy pieces, but since I procrastinated buying DF forever, by the time I was ready, the sci-fi sets were out and on sale for 50% off, and I was finally playing Star Wars d20 and the Star Wars Minis game... So it worked out perfect! I bought 6 Sci-Fi Starters, 4 Alphas, and 4 Passage sets. We love 'em, and will definitely be buying Sci-Fi Beta in Feb, and will get the fantasy sets later when we tire of saving the galaxy and get back to D&D/Conan, etc.

Well, speaking as one of the folks here -- was this ever in doubt? I absolutely agree with you that a generous supply of new product is great support for a line. Whenever too much time passes with nothing new, people get bored and move on.

Maybe some people needed convincing -- and maybe now they are. Either way, all the news of upcoming DF products is great, great, great to hear!

I have read plenty of doubt on here L about the SF MM.
There have been persons back when it first was announced that started bad mouthing it.
Then there were persons campaigning for its quiet, but definitive demise after it just was not a hot seller like some items.
Additionally, I had people telling me to shut it up about having furnishing sets and telling me how that would just be a waste of DF's resources.
That is why I was cheering Wereweasel's posting.
