I found this quote here.

Since I plan on pouring envirotex onto my tiles once they get here I am just going to make my own open water tiles so I'm not too worried about it. I'll just make a square of the same size out of clay then pour to match the height of all the other and there ya go!

I've seen a vortex piece that would be cool as well

We'll get to see how well the 4x4 floor tiles work with this run. If they go as expected I figure it is only a matter of time until we see that footprint in water and dungeon tiles. There is likely enough demand for floor packs to make that viable.

I do like the idea of a water wicked additions pack. A vortex, maybe some pieces for a rapids run (either as tiles or pieces that sit on the tiles), maybe a dock and a row boat, perhaps a geyser? What would all of you like to see in a wicked additions for water?

My players rue the day I bought "Dragon Mountain". Ever since they give every creature a bit more respect. You never know when the GM will decide that this group is crafty...

Open water tiles seem to be SO easy to make I felt a little sheepish to offer them....you will only need them to make a REALLY huge empty lake...personally, If i have a huge underground lake...I usually can't help but include an island in the middle...with a tower....or a hut, or a rocky outcrop of stalagmites hiding something mysterious....

Anyway, yes, I am sure someone will fill the need and make some custom larger open water tiles...or even islands....

I hope we do see more water tiles in the future, but this is exactly why I like the negative space approach -- wide expanses of anything require a ridiculous number of tiles.

In addition to more water tiles, I hope that we will also see shoreline pieces of smooth stone, or even a narrow sandy beach. The unpainted version could be painted to look like ash in a volcanic environment, or like rust for the edge of an acid lake, or white at the rim of an ice field.

I've got two diferent krackens coming so I kinda have a need for a larger amount of water tiles to make the situation feasable

Stefan,
Please don't feel sheepish! I'll be THRILLED to send you money for an open water pack. Whatever custom options won't be made of Dwarvenite, and won't be exactly the same paint. I'm getting 4 water caverns (most likely, the anguished decisions are ongoing), and I'll be happy and grateful for the chance to have perfectly matched open water tiles. 2x2 and 4x4 both work fine on my end...

I agree with Davinh. I'd like my open water tiles to perfectly match the painted water cavern sets and lava river sets i'm purchasing. Also, unpainted open water tiles would be a very versatile addition.

This came up in the KS comment section way back.

Someone posted AMAZING pictures of using blue/red cellophane to show water/lava, instead of using tiles. The effect was impressive.

I was blown away. SO much in fact that I am not getting any water sets at all, and got more chasm sets instead to show shoreline.

Basically, you roll the coloured cellophane over the table, and build your tiles over the top. You could also lay a grid down under the cellophane to show movement space.

You can even laminate pieces of cellophane to toss down as needed.

Here are the closest pics I could find.

Another thing is, having 4 2x2 open water tiles in the water cavern set is not the same as having 1 4x4 open water tile in the cavernous lake set, as open water tiles are needed to replicate the shore pieces in that set as well. In the end, even with 4 water cavern sets (16 open water tiles), I can't make anything more than a modest pond, and any island I put in it has to be close to the shore. I also can't make a wider river that goes all the way across my table. That's why I really wanted the option of more open water tiles.

For more water tiles...you could paint the bottom of all your floor tiles blue.

Actually...why ARNT floor tiles double sided for land/water? WFT?!?!?!?!
