lightning graciously granted me early access to his fence model, so I could do a test build.... Here's the results. Pretty awesome - only some minor feedback, so the final set will be even awesomer. Consider joining the patreon.
Very cool. Did you bring the scenery broken down, or already put together? Granted, you have more experience setting up, but for a one-evening adventure, this looks quite involved on your end
This was a 2-hour run - and here's how it worked mechanically...
The buildings are all solid build (the Church is 3 pieces). There was one FDG two-part tree, but all the rest was fold-flat. Scene changing goes quickly because I have everyone participate in the construction.
I moved from the town scene to the forest by simply setting aside the clear polycarbonate that the buildings, petting zoo, and NPCs were sitting on. Changed backdrop (which was sitting behind the starting backdrop) and the map.
Then I got out the fold-flat trees and the lichen and said "You get to play with my toys, please put the trees where you see trees on the map and these bushes too." I built and placed the WWG backdrop "wall" of trees while they did the slotted and fold-flat adapted trees and such. When they were sill working, I moved a few things around for visibility and balance. That took 5-10 minutes tops.
For the final scene, I quickly scooped off the trees/lichen to the sides, flipped the map to the other side, built my 3-piece fold-flat Ogre house kitbash and had them help me replace the trees. I put the large FDG tree in the center (there was a trap there) and the cart. That took less than 5 minutes.
So - the answer is planning, practice, and audience participation. :-)
I found having the group "do" the builds real-time leads to better "investment" in the terrain - they know the interesting places, because they built them!
Very nicely managed. When I have gone to gaming 'conventions', more like a meet really, it seems that folks lose interest quickly. By creating 'investment' and 'ownership', you are loading the dice in favor of a great game.
There are no strangers in this world,only people I haven't embarrassed ... yet!
Vermin King: For Papercuts this year, I am just going to use things created since last Papercuts. Bessie for the model and Onager Longhauler for the kitbash. I was going to build 10 Downing St for a Bessie backdrop, but that ain't happening

Vermin King: I've decided I need to stop trying to get stuff back that I lost and get back to working on new stuff. Until work stuff gets caught up, I need to fight the rebuilding aspect.

Vermin King: My Doctor Who stuff is all gone... and couldn't get onto the company database for 4 1/2 hours today. Life has got to get better

Vermin King: It's been such a nightmare, I haven't been to OBS or your site yet. I just know they are gone

bravesirkevin: @vermin King, you should still be able to download the stuff you purchased from me again, if that helps. If you have any issues, just drop me a direct message and I'll send through whichever ones you can't download

Vermin King: And none of the Streetpaper Advent models were in there, and only seven of bravesirkevin's figures are in there, and none of my purchased ones... And the old Canon kid's models are still beyond reach

Vermin King: Oo, oo! I just saw the Olli Bizer models loading!

Vermin King: I feel less 'at a complete loss', now. I found a thumb drive of 'Papercraft'. Not sure how old it is, but it does have the Zio models, old Streetpaper, old Canon and HP models, etc. Now it is just an overwhelming loss

wyvern: VK: Now you also have the "joy" of the painfully slow shutdown and reboot every time (at least once a month) that Windows is made "better" by yet more unwanted clutter being downloaded to your system, plus a scatter of useless "desktop.ini" files.

Vermin King: After 3 1/2 hours of updating, I got this xxxxxxxx Win10 computer runnable. I'm really going to miss the ease of Win 7. Amazing all the stuff I did here that is just gone ... except for what I posted
