Passage Cominations 7 Months, 3 Weeks ago  
What is the general consensuses for the combination of passage sets? Was it 1/3/4?
Just finalizing my pledge and couldn't remember the 3 sets I was planning on.

Thanks

At least 1:1 or 1:2 ratio for sets 3 and 4, then sets 1 and 2 as you want.

Set 4 really compliments set 3, allowing for the most pieces to be used from set 3 without waste. Pieces from set 2 can be swapped out for pieces from set 4 to create tighter corridors. Set 1 simply provides longer hallway configurations.

How many sets were you planning to get?

I figured you need 2 of set 4 for each set 3....
So.... I went with :

2 set #1
1 set #3
2 set #4

I actually intend to glue them together as the Resin Room and Passage sets.

I was planning on 3 sets, 1/3/4. A few people in the KS comments seemed to think that was the best combination if only getting a few sets.

Re:Passage Cominations 7 Months, 3 Weeks ago  
i ended up with 1,3,4,4

if you get only 1 set 4.... here is what you should expect

10 straight hallways
4 corners
4 t-intersections
14 connectors (4+10 of set4)

each corner needs 2 connectors so you can use all 4 corners with 6 left over for T-intersections of which you could use 2 of your 4 or you could do 1 X intercetion with 2 connectors left w no t-intersections

each t-intersection needs 3 connectors so you can use all 4 T-intersections with 2 left over to use 1 corner. (3 corners unused)

If you want to use all corners and intersections at the SAME TIME you need 8+12 or 20 connectors...

you could put a straight hallway next to one of these pieces but with the outward bevel of the corners/intersections, you will create a small gap in the floor.

not a problem if you don't plan on using all 4 corners and 4 intersections at the same time, then 1 of pack 4 could do... you might run short for larger builds though.

When it came time to finalize my order, I ended up cutting out all passage sets, in order to keep my total below $1k - so I'll be picking them up retail in the fall.

But if I were purchasing passages now, I'd go with:

3 sets: 1,3,4 ($126)
4 sets: 1,3,4,4 ($168)
or 7 sets: 1,2,3,3,4,4,4 ($294)

@JennyOC,

Man, on the one hand I'm thinking 'this would have been great when I was locking in my pledge' and on the other hand I would have needed to pledge for 6 more sets :-) anyways, thanks for the excellent breakdown. I can always buy more sets later.

I was thinking 1,1,3,4,4

but dropped it to just 1,3,4,4 after putting all the pieces into the map maker...

if for some reason I need longer passageways, i can always use 2 connectors and ignore the gap in the bevels.

I wanted to actually see how many times I wished i had the set 2 before i committed to it especially if I one ever wanted 1 or 2... I could always just cut down one or two pieces that I already had.

There were so many add-ons this go round that this one was one that I had to leave out. But having the Room and Passage Set and the Short Passage Set I have some of it already.

I have been dwelling on the dungeon passage combination for a while now, so this thread is perfectly timed for me.

BIOWIZARD deserves a major shout out for his work (follow link )
breaking it ALL down for us, so I got filled on EXACTLY what was going down with these sets.
