« on: June 02, 2010, 17:30:22 »
following giorginetto's suggestion in another thread - http://www.playmofriends.com/forum/index.php?topic=4623.0 - and a lot of oppinions expressed by a lot of members - http://www.playmofriends.com/forum/index.php?topic=4644.0 , http://www.playmofriends.com/forum/index.php?topic=4514.0 , etc. - i decided to run this poll.

It says in the poll you can pick up to six, so you can pick all the options if you like. Wouldn't make much of a survey though, like when we have a "what's your favorite set/klicky" thread and then people choose several.

@cachalote, any reason you've left out the other existing construction systems? Like the one used for the old Western buildings, or the new click system used in the Lighthouse and Dragon World theme?

Steck, steck, and even more... STECK!

I voted for steck, but maybe with new additions,
Such as a 4 way connector and a few new platforms,
Along with 45* angles and 135* angle connectors.
(You will need different platforms for these...)
Steck is BACK! <:>

Ditto, I like steck but it is still limited. The new angles would be a great start, with the necessary floor pieces to make it all fit, and a 4-way connector. Then let's have all the wall pieces in the 3 colors, "Pirate" grey, normal and "Dark Steck", and add a white so we can build white fantasy castles and Roman etc. It was quite common even for European castles to be whitewashed. Then, how about a warm honey-colored stone limestone Steck that many British castles are built of?

If you like Steck, why would you NOT like an improved and expanded Steck?
