bawlz? I wouldnt mind caffeinated walls myself.

*youre right. You can't build those. You can build thick sandstone walls by going to the archway button then one of the sandstone options.

Hmmm...maybe I'll build a sandstone fortress. That might look kinda neat.

Or it might look like luna. :/

Yup thats Luna.

Its a big shame that all the available items ingame are not actually in the ingame house builder. I wish they would update it and allow us to build even more interesting houses.

I dont see the problem with the thick walls, the extra space is unusable anyway, and they fit the same footprint as a normal wall tile :)

Sandstone looks good, but I suggest you build it over in the desert near Umbra. If you build sandstone on grass it does kinda end up with a luna look.

I say try it all and find what you like. Besides that guy with the borg cube next door doesn't pay for your account so why should his opinion count.

ugh I hate borg cubes lol.

I also find it funny that in a fantasy world, when we look for an analogy we go, of all places, to Star Trek.

I never was a big trekkie, however after seeing the latest Starwars I made the Spock greeting my new personal credo.

Found it quite funny picking nerds out of crowds and randomly giving them the "live long and prosper" greeting to see how they reacted to it.
(usually they either looked away or blatantly ignored me :()

the newest movie was a brilliant move - going back to the original crew is the best thing they could have done - even if the explanation is a bit overused. the original movies are known for being more 'realistic' and less about simply making up big words.

It was really only Voyager that did the making up of big words, and it never had the same kind of appeal that the original Star Trek had. That said, I think the crew of TNG would have done just as well as the original, but with the way the story was written the original crew just plain fits better.

I should say that I'm speaking as a guy too young to really be able to enjoy the original Star Trek series because it just plain looked too cheesy compared to TNG. I felt compelled to do a little homework before watching the new movie and enjoyed it.
