I bought this at the same time as the first light set, as I wanted lots of sci-fi to play with. That was several months ago, and I haven't stopped building with this stuff yet! I was very pleased at how these sets complement one another without too much overlap. While they provide an "ideal build" guide for making it fit the standard FL ship, there is limitless flexibility in how you can mix parts to create anything you can think of for a cool futuristic spacecraft setting. The attention to detail and quality of the textures is outstanding. They went the extra distance to create a number of nicely detailed smaller peices to dress up rooms and corridors to make these sets much more than mere 3D gaming terrain; they are high quality paper models that are a joy to build and display just for the fun of it! This set is a must have for anyone considering the Fisrt Light set.

Just more of the same, well yes. But then more of the same kind of outstanding is also outstanding. If anything could actually improve the First Light set, then it would be more options, more features to be used and more high quality items to fill all that wonderful gaming space. Well yes, that's what is offered here and it still an outstanding set at a great price.
I haven't mentioned durability before, but I will now. I find the terrain reusable and really as durable or more so than many other materials and incredibly easy to replace if damaged. And did I mention NO PAINTING, but that may not be a problem with some for getting that critical piece on the table for the next game for some people. That this isn't just one piece, but a whole starship or outpost or...well, what can you imagine?
Is there a downside, sigh, yes. You will challenged to imagine uses and build them and to game with them. Not a great challenge as the building can be fun too. Imagination you have and gaming fun is the payoff, so maybe there isn't a real downside.
Buy it, you can't beat the price or the possibilities.
