What are passage walls

Post by period3 » Fri May 21, 2021 6:25 pm

The hidden gem this month said that the caverns advanced builder included "hard to get passage walls". But the piece list has no mention of passage walls. What are they?

I think they might be referring to the 1" wide pieces, combined with 2" wide walls they can create a passage width corridor or add a bit to a real passage if added length is needed to bridge a gap. I really don't know, but that's my guess. ;)

They are also called “Outside Standing Walls.” They are 2 inch long, 2 inch tall straight walls, with a metal tab sticking out underneath on one side, like the passage walls in the dungeon set. There are two of them in the set.

Yes, just this one tabbed piece- and they don't show the tabs in the set picture.

It's a very useful piece for building odd rooms, such as when you want to place a floor feature near a wall.

(I used a couple of them today to place ledges adjacent to walls.)

Riley wow what a great idea!

I never even thought of doing that as I have a bunch if these pieces but rarely use them but using for walls against ledges makes sense. For some reason I just figured they were too long the metal part to place under a ledge piece.

I am going to play around with this week when I have time.

It depends on the ledge. I pulled the tabs off a couple of my walls to use with the smallest ledge pieces. They came off clean, and will be easy to glue back later if needed.

So basically a free standing wall without the metal bottom so you lost the magnetic part of it.

(Hmmmm thinks to self about buying an extra bunch to pull a Nate and tear apart).... :P
