    I know we had a pic of one on the old forums. Sandy floor, little grass like hut, palm trees etc. Someone even suggested having vendors named after chars of Gilligans Island.
    Hmmm..there were nets, shells, fishing poles...
    Anyone else remember that one?

    Yup, it was the first thing that came to mind. He had a grass hut, a shipwrecked boat rubble section, and palm tree rubble, which was great. I suggested inhabiting the then deserted island with some Gilligan's Island char named vendors, and to scatter some of the stealable coconut items around, as the design just shouted "3 hour tour" to me. :D

    Since we do not have an actual sand terrain tile that I can remember, other than the SE white sand pattern tiles, you may need to place the sand colored stone tiles as a base and scatter mined sand pieces over the top. That will not be lockdown friendly, but it may be the only way to get sand piles and sand terrain that doesn't look so artificial as the sand garden tiles which of course are meant to represent meticulously raked sections of sand.

    There's a house for sale on the Europe trading board that, while not very developed, may provide a starting point for this concept.

    Maybe he could use the SE floor tiles that look like mats- I think they come in tan, green, or cream. That way it may look like a soft mat floor.

    Very nice pictures. I appreicate the input. I guess my main problem is filling the entire 18 by 18. Cant build too many structures or it looks like some Robinson Crusoe gone mad scheme, but a hut here and there looks a little sparse.

    The hut pictured in europa is intriguing. Are those windows opening out. It does seem to give the hut a more open air feeling

    Yes, those windows open out.
     
  9. Aye. I kept meaning to save the image, but put it off. Not knowing, of course, our forums would be lost to the dark ages. It was a very unique design.
