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.
Vermin King: I didn't post at the time (fairly angry still), but my June Papercraft meeting was cancelled by the venue without even notifying me. They said they would call the previous participants, but I don't know if I can trust them

sergeantmajormarkoff: I like it very much. Somehow seems like it would make the transition between Arrakis, Barsoom, and the Sahara very nicely.

squirmydad: I use winXP in Paralells on my Macbook to run Pepakura and Metasequoia. Otherwise I only touch Windows when a client can't figure out how to mirror their display to my projectors.

Vermin King: Is it the Windows updates or the Firefox updates that won't allow me to select where to download pdf's any more?
