Ouch, not good news on the humidity. I live in a VERY VERY humid area, where the temps range from -10 to 105, sometimes 100% humidity. I do use 2 dehumidifiers, going 24/7, in my game room though (basement). It keeps my paper items (models, games, books) dry and no problems, so maybe it won't be an issue for me!

Will post later. Warping caused by extreme high humidity (110f) during setup followed by an abrupt change in temperature when they turned on the AC the first time. Thicker card likely would have made little difference.

Oooh, that smarts! I hope there was enough in reasonable shape to show off the terrain and run some good Malifaux demos.

The delay is unfortunate but appreciated if it means a better product. These will be my first WWG products. Having long admired the terrain I'm guessing they'll end up being a gateway product to the other settings. :D

Still in Indy guys but I'll give you a full update when I have a minute to catch my breath :)

Take care and talk to you soon!

Hey Denny & Company,

It was great seeing you at GenCon, I think a lot of people were impressed with the potential of your product, I know I was.

Best of luck on the next run! For what it's worth, I think you'll blow everyone away next year. :)

Denny, now that the dust has settled, any chance you can answer these TerraClips questions:
  • Are you investigating other attachment options besides clips, or just getting less glossy clips?
  • Is there any chance of using clips that attach underneath or in some other spot completely out of sight?
  • Any chance the clips can be made significantly smaller, or use less of them to attach pieces, without losing structural strength?
  • Will the new boards be 1.5mm or close to 3mm? Someone claimed you or someone else said they'd like the board to be twice as thick, and it was reported the boards at Gencon were 1.3mm thick.
  • Some site claimed you said the delay would be a few weeks. That can't be realistic, can it? I would think it would be at least 2 months.


Thanks, and can't wait for their release! :)

First and foremost, if you haven't already please view the official delay thread here: http://www.worldworksgames.com/forum/vi ... php?t=8609

Honestly, the reaction to the clips was overwhelmingly positive and I think that has a lot to do with the demographic this product type hits. Gamers who want terrain on the table quickly but with the ability to build whatever they want loved the idea. For many gamers seeing TerraClips for the first time, the clips being visually present was just an accepted part of the system.

The clips are a fundamental element to the system which will constantly evolve. The form factor of the clips has to do with both their function and how easy they are to physically manipulate while building.

The card will be 1.5mm thick on a satin finish as originally spec'd.

In terms of release dates, it boils down to how quickly things can be turned around at the manufacturing level. We've already cleared a number of hurdles at that level with the test run. We're not giving absolutes at this time but we're hoping for a quick turnaround.

I must say that the glossy clips are THE thing that will make me stick to terralinx products : I was eagerly waiting for teraclips products but since I saw the first pictures and movies from Gencon, i must say that I just see only clips in the scenery. I think that they are too big and too glossy for sure. Should have they been smaller and more transparent I wouldn't have hesitated but ....
Nevertheless I think it's a very good products and that many people will love teraclips but for people who know terralinx and have time, I'm not sure that teraclips will be as attractive.

Actually, the clips are supposed to be thinner (at least), and transparent instead of what you see in the pictures- that's why the product's been delayed.
Still, you do have a point about the TerrainLinX/TerraClips divide (henceforth referred to as TLX and TC for the rest of this post). While TLX provides a more seamless combination than TC, TC is ready to use out of the box. Both have the same texture quality, so in the end, you have to ask yourself if the time required to make the TLX tiles is worth more than the obtrusiveness (which should be minimal, but for some people, any amount is too much) of the TC clips.
As Denny has said that TLX is still WWG's Bread and Butter line, I don't think you have to worry about that going away any time soon.
Magius out.

The most important thing I can stress is that the product we showed at GenCon was not by any means final. There are a number of issues and improvements we are working out at the manufacturing level. The final product will have much more polish.

If I purchased the TC streets, couldn't I just place my TLX Building on top of it(TLX base and all)? or are the two system completely incompadible?

I certainly see no reason why not, though I do think that streets without clips would look better. (More work, making all the tiles, but better looking.) You can definitely plop buildings by other companies on the TLX streets.

The only downside, aesthetics aside, is that the buildings wouldn't be clipped to the streets.

You should be able to. You'll need to make sure to use the TC Clips under each of the walls (though you should be doing that anyways...), and be aware that there's likely to be a gap on the top of the supports (though how much of one, I don't know).
Magius out.

There's absolutely no reason you couldn't place a TerrainlinX build on top of or beside a TerraClips build. Both systems are based on the same dimensional standards (namely 3"X2" & 6"X2" walls, 3"X3" & 6"X6" floor tiles). In fact, given the unique benefits of each system I hope that's exactly what people do!

I know I'm planning to use TLX and older set builds for setpieces atop my eventual collection of TC streets. That way I still get to build, but the pressure is off. :3

At this point, the three we have are the three there is. Denny said that these are also a trial run, and if these 3 sets do good, then they will start looking at other potential sets. That being said, look for the various first sets to be based on the malifaux setting, as TC is an equal partnership with Wyrd and built (atm) for malifaux. I.E. Mountains, swamps, victorian industrial, etc.

As far as I can tell, the standard fantasy dungeon doesn't fit well with that setting, so that may be ways out for the time being.

Actually, nothing is off the table at the moment. A straight ahead dungeon is just as likely to hit market as a Malifaux specific setting. Bottom line is this; if TerraClips takes off you'll see our output increase to accommodate most popular terrain settings.

The possibility of having Sci-Fi sets of TC seems to be getting a number of Infinity players excited:

And I'll be straight in with my order for a SF set (or two).

And yet...

Terraclips, terraclips, terraclips. It feels like everything else is, if not on hold, not getting the extra resources to push it into <released!> status.

Wormhole - the Verus fleet? Obsidian Gale? The Garden? The kitbashing zone? TLX precut mounts? Titan?

I realise that TRC represents a paradigm shift for WWG which can completely redefine the company's future and that's great. I would just like a steer on what priority is going to be given to longstanding works in progress?

In peace.

Most projects are done by 1 designer. And many of them are not full time employees. So some projects are just slow do to the real life demands upon that artist.

The gardens is being converted by a part time artist. I'm pretty sure he's still doing it rather than being moved to a new thing. same with titan and I think versus fleet.

I don't know if Aubrey's involved in terraclips, but I suppose if he is that would explain the delays with kitbashes.

Mainly I think Denny's is the one who is really sidetracked by them. But I don't think he was doing any of the announced projects anyway.

The big issue isn't really TerraClips production demands (though that is a part of it) but rather the fact that I've personally been gone most of the month. Even now, I'm out of province for a family wedding, so combined with GenCon August has pretty much been a write-off.

We do have extra staff and everyone is plugging away as best they can but various issues have made this month a bit of a perfect storm. September will see movement on all fronts.

If in doubt you can wait for the official release. Everyone is working their hardest so that this is available for the holiday season. So soon!

Here's a question I haven't seen asked (and I'm not at all certain you would care to answer). Medium weight chipboard is 1.45mm thick. A single sheet of 80lb cardstock is .25mm, so if you were to glue two printed 6x6 tiles to a precut 6x6 sheet of medium cardstock and apply a very thin clear coat, it should be _VERY_ close to the 2mm thick tiles used for TC.
The clear coat could be omitted, but I think it would add quite a bit to the durability of the page. If the thickness was just a hair over you could use one or two sheets of 70lb cardstock instead of 80lb, which are .20mm each.

So... without breaking any contractual agreements, would that actually work? Honestly, I can't imagine that the overall cost would be much if any cheaper once you factor in the ink, cardstock, chipboard, adhesive, clear coat, and licensed connectors (based on a very low guess, the cost for just the chipboard for a single set would run right around $10 without any taxes or shipping and with 0 waste when subdividing 6x6 tiles into 3x3, 6x2, and 3x2 sections) but it WOULD give us some flexibility to build out a set much faster than cutting out the standard TLX bases and with a wider variety of available textures.

EDIT: Ah, I just noticed that the official TC tiles are notched where the clips are supposed to go. That makes sense, but it does mean that you would have to notch the 6x6 tiles in order to make them "fit". Cricut has a blade that can allegedly cut through 1.5mm chipboard but with that additional investment it definitely doesn't look like there would be any cost savings, and without the blade there probably wouldn't be any time savings either.
