Devon, your work is superb, but I was wondering at what pace all your great tiles are going to be converted. Not pushing, I know how much work you have put into this. Are you going to be converting your sewer tiles? I can do my own conversion, but was wondering if I should wait for yours.

So there are two paths to conversion. One is just publishing all the shapes of bases (curved, angled, etc) with openlock slots on them. That is a path forward for anything OpenForge 2.0 that can take bases.

For the older stuff, crenelated, sewer, pool, ruined, stone, I'm slowly making new sets that fill the same niche, but with the lessons I've learned over the past few years.

New sets as I create them, I'll just create off the bat with support for both systems.

I expect it will be about a year give or take before everything is available in both OpenForge 2.0 and OpenLOCK styles. I try to get stuff moved over, but I also want to make sure that I'm publishing new stuff as well. So far my pace has been a consistent 4 releases per month for most of the past year. About half of those I'm doing as updates, and about half is new content.

If there's something specifically you want to see moved forward, my patrons do have a page where they can vote on what I should be working on, and I pretty much always pick from the top 5 or so for what to work on for most releases. Votes are done on this page: http://openforge.masterwork-tools.com

I do still try to get things people from the community want, but I since they are supporting me, I generally give their votes priority.

As for the specific question of sewer - I'll try to convert them, but they are more difficult. The problem is that the sewer is 'below grade', so it interferes with where the clip is. I can move the contents up, but then it gets to be a little odd that the flowing sewer is higher then floor tiles connected. I'm sure I'll come up with a solution when I work on it, but I've been noodling on it in the back of my mind for a while.

Having experimented with my own work lately, I know the time commitment. I will shortly become a patron. I just have never done it and worry about my information specifically billing being stolen. I will check into it soon and make a judgement at that point. Thanks for your reply.

I really like the way the locking system from Rocket Pig Games is working (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/rocketpiggames/tilescape-dungeons). As this is copyrighted, it cannot included here, but if you don't mind I'd like to start experimenting witha way to modify this base and one of your sets so the base will snap in place and won't need any glueing.

Yeah, go ahead, that's why my bases are replaceable.

Side note, I've been wondering for a while when we would see a 3x3 based system.
