TOPIC: Add Ons - Wish List
#61420
Re:Add Ons - Wish List 7 Months, 4 Weeks ago  
the pool and 2 types of grates were dwarvenite versions of the fantasy floors. 5 of the 9 pieces from that set actually. dont know how well the rest of that set would do in dwarvenite, but the resin restock is in june.

since they have the molds for it, the only real question is if running more of those pieces in dwarvenite would make enough money, and how to package them. they would also need a new paintjob, as the original colors were KS-exclusive. these are not exactly in demand for a high volume.

it is also possible that pre-existing molds could be used as a new add-on for the cavern kickstarter. those piles of skulls could certainly add to the caverns, depending on what else was on their mold.

Well how about this for a suggestion for an add-on pack?

1 or 2 COS style pools in a different color scheme AND
12 or so free standing walls.

Yes it would have nothing to do with caverns but a lot of people seem to want those items and the molds already exist.

No reason to have to have Dwarvenite exclusives. as long as they work with dwarvenite, they can use existing molds and do resin. Not that you would want to do a ton of these, but if you pay for the exclusive, why not? I would love to see lake tiles, or shoreline, or anything frankly, Im a total junkie now.

i imagine that the process to mold dwarvinite and resin are completely different. I know very little of either, but I'm pretty sure resin is kinda like an epoxy that you mix and pour while dwarvinite prolly has to be heated and shot into the molds with pressure. There's a whole spectrum of obstacles this could and/or does create

What I learned about molding from the first KS:

Rigid casting material requires flexible molds, which are relatively cheap.

Flexible casting material requires rigid molds, which are very expensive.

Thus, the up-front costs of Dwarvenite pieces is quite high, because the steel molds run about $10K each -- and you can only get two or three pieces in a single mold.

So I would argue against KS-exclusive pieces and (intentionally) limited runs.

Exclusive paint jobs are a different matter.

A transition piece from level 1 to level 2 in the form of a natural incline rather than steps is so much needed. Its prolly to late to suggest this now but I can't believe I didn't think of it before. Hopefully someone else thought of it so we can get it
