Hey guys! Apologies for cluttering up multiple threads with this, but I'm pretty excited about the idea of using bookshelves for skyscrapers. Here's the shelf I'm currently looking at.



It's roughly a foot cubed (not a perfect cube) and if it's anything like the cube I have, it'd fit 6x7 hexes on the interior.

Roughly 20 bucks, easy to assemble (see the video in the link) and you could buy more and stack them, so it's modular on a 2 story basis. The plan would be to leave the backing step out of assembly in order to let players reach in from two sides.

Major things I can think of that would need figuring out (please post additions and I'll update the OP):

1. Interior travel (elevator, turbo lift, stairs, what have you)
2. Interior design (any decoration of walls, etc.)
3. Furniture?
4. Hexes (stencils? Paint? Print Out?)
5. Doors and windows (Should they be included? If so, where? What mechanics? Shooting/moving through them?)
6. Exterior decorations
7. Exterior additions (fire escape, window perches, etc.)
8. Base (restrictions/plan for putting it down on a map)

Thoughts?

C3G can be played with official Heroscape, but it's not recommended.

Re: Bookshelf Skyscraper Brainstorming

First thing: take those measurements in the 2nd pic on Amazon and see how it fits with hexes.

Yep.

Looks like you can easily not install the backer board to keep the front and back open.

Will do. Probably some time this afternoon or evening.

Re: Bookshelf Skyscraper Brainstorming

Based on my measurements, you're looking at a 39 hex playable area inside and 44 hex playable area on the roof.

It's 7 hexes wide inside with alternating columns of 6, 5, 6, 5, 6, 5, 6 in depth. The roof adds room for another 5 hex column.

I figure about two hexes for the elevator shaft could work. If we don't want to cut, we could always just color that spot black. Not cutting an actual elevator shaft might be for the best, because otherwise if you wanted to stack multiples of these, you'd have to have that shaft in the roofs and floors of each you wanted to stack below the highest level. That does not seem ideal.

Re: Bookshelf Skyscraper Brainstorming

Based on my calculations, each Block would be about 27 levels high (so if you have two of them stacked, that's 54 levels, and if you have three stacked, that's 81 levels).

Each interior section in a block, since they're divided in half, I'm approximating at about 11 levels, so theoretically you could fit up to Surtur and Groot (if their heights of 10 are accurate) but Satannus at 12 would be too big (no dinos in the lobby). Of course, if you want to have a massive, open lobby, nothing's to stop you from getting a cube without the middle shelf for your bottom level.

Re: Bookshelf Skyscraper Brainstorming

Definitely need some interior furniture or walls or something. What you do depends on the theme you want to go with. Desks and cubicles for a generic office building. Lab equipment for a more specific pharmaceutical company. You could make it a department store with rows of tvs, refrigerators, clothing racks, etc.

Re: Bookshelf Skyscraper Brainstorming

Just copying this over here for the sake of keeping it all in one place. I'll have to ponder on it a bit, but I like it.

The Turbo Lift works the same mechanically as an elevator, then the ladder allows other units to fly/swing line up the elevator shaft as well. If you put 3 or 4 elevator shafts in a row then you can move multiple figures up and down between the floors, although a turbo lift that held 4 figures at once would be cool too. Just would need to make your own custom ladders as that is too many ladder pieces to glue permanently onto a building.

Re: Bookshelf Skyscraper Brainstorming

Well, I ordered three of them, so we'll see where it goes from here!

Yodaking's post did have me thinking that if you cut every level for the elevators, that could just mean having roof access via elevator with the top level. I'm back to wanting to cut, I think.

Re: Bookshelf Skyscraper Brainstorming

You could start with a hole saw and then square it up with a sharp chisel or maybe a coping saw.

I need to buy some tools ....

Also, what do folks think for floor decorations? I'd love to get something I could just print out for the floors. Give me a second here and I'll post pics of what we can expect for interior and exterior room.

Even if it's just hardwoods or "tile" with a hex pattern on it, that'd be perfect:

Re: Bookshelf Skyscraper Brainstorming

OK, the red taped off area is the internal measurements of the structure and the green taped off area is the external measurements (so could be used for the rooftop hex layout).



The second picture has those two black shadow spaces to represent where an elevator shaft could be cut in. Should I go for four wide instead of two wide? Or does that take up too much space?



Here's the rooftop representation. You basically get five extra hexes (though some of those would have to be taken up by a rooftop access area for the elevator. There's enough wiggle room up there for quite a few partial hexes if that's appealing.
