If you do kickstarter-only optional paint schemes such as Ice Caverns, please allow the option to get all our sets in whatever paint-scheme we want. (I think I would go for all Ice Caverns)

I've been debating whether to take the revolving center section out of one of my Secret Door pieces to use as a "broken wall" piece, and as a simple transition to future GT lines.

If that is something DF can do at the factory, they would be able to use an existing mold for a "new" piece.
I don't believe I've seen any final word on retail SKUs, but if a "door pack" was sold separately from the rest of the dungeon dressing, the "broken wall" idea would be a nice inclusion.

I think a door pack (whether as part of a KS, or just a Dwarvenite offering here on the DF website using pieces already created for the last KS) would be great, and probably sell very well. Personally I wish there was a way to buy individual secret doors, cell doors, etc. But I guess this is drifting from the point of this thread...

So I'll just add, yes, it would be great to have dungeon to cavern transition pieces, including doors.

Here is an idea for a transition piece and a door.

A 2x2 cavern floor with walls on both sides with a door on one end.

It might be pushing the limits of the Dwarvenite mold technology but if it could be done it would bode well for narrow dungeon passages in Dwarvenite.

A standard 2x2 cavern floor tile with a cavern wall that turns on a post at one corner of the tile, so the wall could swing a full 90 degrees.

Think of it as a large secret door.

Also want one for dungeon GT, and one for MM Wicked Additions 4.

Edit: Come to think of it, this might be a spiffy way to do very large double doors. Just put a door on a corner pivot post, then put two tiles with doors together. The doorway would be a full 4 squares wide (less the thickness of the doors themselves).

At some point I'd also like to see a reverse round step (for downard stairs) similar to the round step we have now, but in the opposite direction...

So if your confused as to what I'm talking about - imagine a rectuangular room - with the center sunk down - now there are stairs going down into the sunken floor - but the round steps now wont fill the corners - they have to be reversed.

Hopefully that makes sense?

If the current Curved Stair piece is an "outside turn", you want an "inside turn".

Where the current Curved Stair is a quarter circle, you want an arch.

Miss a little miss a lot. I don't check in for two days and good ideas are popping!

Fizzikx - reveres stair idea has utility and it is small so perhaps it could share a mold with something else to keep the cost down? (not sure if there is enough demand for that piece to justify a 10K mold...) i do like the idea of being able to build down as fluidly as we build up.

Jackattack - the idea for the swivel wall is awesome. I think it would probably need to be anchored at the top for stability. So closed it would look like a corner. Just thinking quickly it seems like a Left and a Right would be required to make a double door, but perhaps i am not being clever enough. Once this was designed, it could be made with either a wood door or a wall section (using the same tile mold and swapping the inserted piece). This would get DF more bang for the buck out of the molds. I think this would be an awesome add on to the Corridor kickstarter (cause there is going to be a corridor set right?... right?)

I thought the plan was when the Caverns/ KS hit 5 million for there to be a corridor add-on and a passage add-on and when it hit 6 million for there to be a ruins add-on and a nature takes back the dungeon add-on. (note I am joking but I would love for it not to be a joke)

I don't think it would be any less stable than a freestanding wall piece; a small post (maybe 1/2" tall) would actually make it more stable, but there is a risk of misalignment during production. It is also very important to avoid left/right combos in GameTiles due to the high cost of molds.

We can achieve the same effect with a freestanding wall by itself, although adding a post to a floor tile and a hole to a freestanding wall should be a fairly simple mod for those so inclined.

But that still leads me to suggest a single freestanding door piece (the same thickness as a freestanding wall piece) that is identical on both sides so that we can do grand double doors with two freestanding door pieces and a two-tile gap in a wall. Not very caverny, but still useful.

I could hardly see the cavern ks exceeding the first one coming so soon after this one. Even Reaper waited a year for Bones II. People are already expressing a certain amount of KS fatigue after so many of them in the past year. A lot of people shot their wad on this one so I would be hard pressed to see it passing 75%.
