Much as I like the result of the 3D corridor, I’m now wondering whether I should be doing floor tiles only - without the walls. Walls mean the doorways need to be in fixed positions and so v inflexible. Also more difficult to pick up and move figures 🤔

If you're only doing floors, why not just print them?

Or, you could have a groove each side of the corridor shaped like an inverse railway rail. Have wall and door pieces with a rail underneath and just slide them in.

Are you making reusable rooms and corridors or just to a fixed design for the game? The walls do look good but it's how much more use you'll get from them against the work involved.

Well it’s the reuse thing that’s starting to make me think

Printed floor plan on a black cloth looks good and is easily reusable.

Of course, the true artist would be doing fully sculpted walls, rooms and a fake ceiling to hide what’s coming and allow for multiple levels in future.

It’s bloody slow going, but progress is being made on the Limes Tower. Next up is the top section and wood
