Hey all, I wanted to put down a list and get others' input on things that would be nice to craft for various environments. Let me know anything that should be added. Things could be any object, terrain feature, natural obstacle, or even something bizarre but fits the theme/environment. As I have time, I will add links to the various methods corresponding to the object and we can all use this thread as a resource. Also, if you think of other environments, let me know if you want it added. I only do fantasy, but if people list Sci-Fi or whatever, I'll happily add it.

New to the boards and starting out , What dimensions should these items usually be if we're listing them all out, I am also wondering what sizes/lengths should I have for a set of walls and how many of each for a decent dungeon.
Been away from a computer for nearly a month so this is a belated response. This is info that was either provided in the originator's posts or that I got by counting what was in the vids. I summarized it for my use, so I am just going to give the lists, without looking for the links that I would ordinarily include.
For 2.5D NEXT, which is just walls and accessories, not tiles. Wall count from DM Scotty's video: 1x1: 3 or 4 2-square long: 8 or 9 3-square long: 10 to 12 6-square long: about 20 12-square long: about 3 You'll want some doors and other accessories, too, and the cave wall segments if you are doing caves.
DnDPaladin suggested: basics for me are these... - dungeon set... --- Walls (12 inch, 6 inch, 3 inch, 1 inch) about 4-6 of them all --- stalagmites (about 6-10) --- Rocks (same as stalagmites) --- Rough terrain (4-6 as well) - Wilderness set... --- Trees (8-10 different sizes.) --- Roads (alternatives but i can see it as necessary) --- Bushes (about 6-10) --- Rough terrain same as dungeon set but with natural stuff instead. - Other Stuff --- Doors (wooden, stones, secrets, portcullis) about 4 each should be enough --- Light sources (braziers, torches on stands) again 4 of each.
My tile count seems to be elsewhere - I'll look for it.
What to use for bases if you aren't using tiles: large piece of felt, large piece of vinyl "fabric", painted foam mats [see DM Scotty's 2.5D Next videos], mat made by painting heavy canvas [see Jennifer's posts on this forum], fabric mottled green or brown or sandy from quilting cotton section of JoAnns [just cut it to the size you want - you don't have to hem it if you don't have a sewing machine], or the most elaborate war-game terrain bases you can come up with!
I wouldn't just set up on a bare dining table unless you and your housemates don't care what the table surface ends up looking like.
TheDMG's suggestions on tiles:
corner, 2x2: 6 2-sided hallway, 2x2: 4 1-sided , 2x2: 10 field, 2x2: 3 [these are tiles with no walls at all] corner, 4x4: 2 1-sided, 4x2: 2 1-sided 6x2: 2 1-sided, 8x2: 1 2-sided, 4x2: 5 2-sided, 6x2: 6 2-sided, 8x2: 2 2-sided, 10x2: 1 corner with hall, two 2x2 halls: 7 T-junction, four 2x2 units: 2 intersection, 4-way, five 2x2 units: 1 room, right-hand door, 4x4: 3 room, left-hand door, 4x4: 3 room, 6x4 4: 1 each of lower left, lower right, upper left, upper right doors [NOTE: if you use over-the wall doors, you don't need to vary where the door is] room, 6x6, center door: 1 room 6x6, lower right door: 1 room, 8x6, door in each short side: 1 room, 8x8, 2 doors offset in opposite walls: 1

margaret: Putting this here because I don't know where else to post it - the site is not letting me post responses today. And it wouldn't let me log out and relog either. Not sure what is going on

Draklith: have your internet settings changed? first thing i"d check, sometimes when you install a new program or something, it will change your settings

margaret: It eventually resolved itself. The computer did update at some point this past week, but I never changed anything in the browser settings to resolve the issue. This site just seems to get cranky with my computer sometimes

thelibraryghost: Is thread necro-ing frowned upon here? (It would be in the Crafting Tips and Tricks forum, not just adding comments in General Crafting.)
