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?


yes that's the spirit new and improved steck !!!! that's what i voted

Well, so most people are in favour of an improved and revised steck system. :)
So, please use the corresponding threads to submit your wishes and advises to improve and revise steck.  ;)

I am aware that you want to have a 4-side connector.  :P

best,
socrates

this is a surprise, to have so many steck lovers and so few system-x.  :o
if you look closely, there are even more votes for the "i really don't care" option than for the "old" or "revised" system-x.  :'(
at least the desire for a totally new system interested only one of us.  ::)
preferring system-x to steck i confess i am a bit disappointed with this (provisional) result.  :hmm:
maybe the "tide" will change...

There's a moral in there somewhere...

In terms of castles, Steck builds better lookign castles.

In terms of Hospitals, Police Stations, Fire Stations, Magical Fairy Castles etc, there isn't a Steck version.
