I swear I just noticed a couple more things of yours on sale that weren't on sale earlier this month. I think I bought about a dozen of your sets this month for just a dollar each. I feel like I'm taking advantage of you or something. Thank you. A lot.
Also, thanks for making things simple to cut and build. I got an autocutter as a gift, but I really like being able to take a bunch of printouts with me somewhere and cut them out with a scissors. I can't do that with a lot of stuff because its too complicated for scissors. Either need a hobby knife or autocutter.
I don't use robocutters, so I need to be able to build everything using just scissors and an X-Acto. I've kind of embraced the fact that my models are easy to build, although I know there are folks who say my models look too "flat" and would prefer more gribbly bits. I consider it a feature, not a bug.
Couldn't agree more Mister G. I like the fact that I can print, cut and assemble most of your models on my knee while I'm watching the TV in an evening after a hard day, and I know they're going to look great on the table. Win-Win. There are one or two with fiddly bits- such as staircases, but even then, it's a matter of patience, not complexity.
I have no need for extra gribbly bits on your models (though an extension pack with awnings, bay windows, porches, shop signs and other street dressing would be good). I do crave some with a less rectangular footprint so I can make more crooked streets, but at a push I can just fiddle with the geometry in the photoshop files. And that's the beauty of DGM.
Building a New Elysium. 29 buildings and counting...
I will totally second the idea of having an expansion pack of awnings and bay windows etc! I've been kitbashing them for my own models (using both DGM and Fat Dragon parts), but a set of additional street-side bits would be awesome.

Toman: yes. though the kids need to be reminded to put them away when they are done. I've come home from work and they are all watching tv while the bikes are sitting in the front lawn. kids

Toman: the bikes now go in the fenced back yard now. after nine years never had an issue with bikes, we did end up with an extra scooter last summer that no one could identify. I think because it was kind of a piece of junk

cowboyleland: Apparently bike theft is rife. Covid makes people want to bike instead of bus so it is a sellers market in the bike world. :/
