Will there be any new floors or walls? I ask because I'm currently building a space station and want a plain black wall or floor so the edges can't be seen when I join them all together

I've heard that there will be new decor items from the defile that are strain/exanite themed, but I haven't heard anything about more tech-based decor or building blocks.

 

As a suggestion, Captain Reurii used draken walls for some portions of her ship and it turned out quite well. In my own shipbuilding I've used a lot of cassian floors as floors and walls. If you overlap the tiles slightly it will cover the black edges so you get a pretty good seamless metal plates feel.

The problem with using cassian floors is that you have to get the plates lined up perfectly because of the grid pattern that's on them. And this is virtually impossible to do because in certain areas of my claims the floor panels shrink without me touching them.
If we could get a few new floor panels of varying colours and finishes without patterns on them then I could do so many new things with my claim

I posted on this exact problem months ago, with screenshots and everything.  Are you by any chance using the rocket ship?

I am. 

certain area's close to my house were shrinking the size of the panels and making everything out of sync. 

Is there a work around?

If you want black/grey walls, depending on how big you go and how you are using them you can use the travel posters scaled up. The back of them is black, they don't scale up as big as a wall, but still gets pretty large. might work for what you are looking to do. As far as the scaling near the ship, i haven't found any work around for that, i ended up using the chua floors since the cassians didn't line up right.

I hate the bottom edges of the walls with a burning passion. Give me a simple straight wall, please.

Not that I've found.  I stopped using the rocket for this very reason.

I believe the shrinking decor phenomenon only applies to the spaceship house we got. If you replace that house the problem should go away.

 

Also, someone posted datamined screenies of Exanite walls from a Drop 3 rep faction. Don't go thinking it's a done deal, but if you're after pale crystalline walls, you may be in luck.

I haven't yet started with my new claim for my warrior. Think I'll wait a couple of weeks and see what I'll have to play with after drop 3 and hopefully the spaceship bug will be fixed ^ ^

Drop 4 will include:

 

Windows (including clear glass panes)

Decking

Railing

Doors (frame-less doors that you can open)

Cylinders

Tubes

Curved Walls

Triangle Walls

Domes

Those all look amazing, Enki. So amazing that I'm dying inside thinking about drop 4 before drop 3 is even out! :P

 

I rolled an Exile alt the other day and was marveling at the giant pneumatic tube looking decor inside the Arkship. Very inspiring. Seeing tubes on your list now (especially if they're clear) makes me want to put myself in cryostasis for the next four months.

 

... anyone renting out a cryopod? -_-

You mean the drop 4 that's now included with Drop 3, right, right...RIGHT? ;)

 

(I'm just being obnoxious, your post was clear...I can dream...)

 

Cannot wait to see some of those in-game. Curved walls! OMG...even the SIMS hasn't done that yet. :D

 

EDIT (b/c I can't help myself): Any chance we're going to see curved stair sections to match the curved walls? The curved wall sections are going to be smaller than quarter-circles, right (like 30- or 45-degree arcs maybe)?

Oh my god you're going to make me redo over half my plot, AREN'T YOU?  Aren't you?

 

I'm so excited for new building blocks, but so very sad that much of my plot would benefit from those >_<

 

Pfffft.  Sneak them into Drop 3?  Pretty please? xD

While its a shame ill have to wait until drop 4 for some needed building blocks, at least now i can start building without fear of having to replace walls etc after drop 3. thx  ;)

Will you be making sure that similar existing items from the Architect profession are BoE, please, especially the windows?
