I had two hours on the TTC today, and I figured out exactly how to work the modular building setup. I'll essplain tommorow when I've got some time to make up some sketches.
*edit* Okay, so I'll do some essplaining at work on my lunch break. The idea would be to have a sublfloor on top of which would be a grid of 2x4s, with squares wide enough to slot a 4 by 4 into. Building corners (or at sides, or as needed) end in 4 by 4 "stilts", which slot into the grid. Then to cover the rest of the area, you have large boards (plywood sheets) that have 4x4 pieces in the corners that you slot into the grid in the same way...think inverted LEGO. Then have the "stilts" rotate at the bottom (secure at preset angles with bolts), so that you can place structures on an angle...then to fill in the rest of the floor area with smaller strips and pieces so that you don't have gaping holes around every building. It's alot of wood, admittedly...but what's the general opinion of the concept? I'll post up pics of drawings tonight when I get a chance to do them.
