My group and I just took the plunge and purchased the DLC.
For the most part, we do enjoy most of it, and I won’t get into the perceived failings several of us have, with one exception.
The building pieces for all three sets are pretty nice, and have a marked difference from the default building sets. I do like the Aquilonian and Khitai sets, but the tops of the foundations, while very nice, do not tile well. And the issue is, they do not pair well with most of the other default sets. So, using the Aquilonia foundations and wedges are nearly impossible for two reasons. The pattern on the square foundation looks nice, and very well done but you cannot build a room with them because it kills your eyes. And, the reflective polished look when in a well lit room produce an overpowering bloom effect that makes it impossible to even see!
Could we please get an additional set of foundation and floor pieces for all three DLC sets that just have the base material on the top (marble for the Acquilonian, the gray stone for the Khitan sets) so we can build a proper floor and alternatively, a ceiling, that does not overpower the eyes with the pattern?
Also, the Frontier set has a nice wood pattern, but it is the only set that has NO special pattern to it, and the wood texture and color of the set does not pair well with any of the other sets. It would be nice to get an addition for all the foundation shapes of this set also, that DOES have a pattern of some sort, perhaps something carved or an image, or roughly painted/faded image?
Just an idea. I build a LOT, and it is very difficult to get the different sets to match and avoiding that tiled look is often impossible to do. With the DLC as-is, I feel I can only use the Acquilonian and Khitan sets for their pattern when seen from the side, in most cases. It would be nice to have some additional peices that tile well.
Thanks for considering this.
