If I create a 10 x 10 room, it almost seems I am forced to put any furnishings on one side or the other, to allow a 5' wide space for pc mini's to walk past.

    I've been in restaurants where there's lots of people sitting a tables within a 10 x 10 space, fairly comfortably, far more room than what mini's on bases could possibly fit in that same space.

    I end up creating larger than required rooms to fit my room contents and still allow several minis to be able to move around in.

    The 5' space requirement really cramps my effort to creating realistic interior maps.

    Just my 2 cents.
    Another reason VTTs rock! No mini bases to get in the way.
    Bill Stickers is innocent! It isn't Bill's fault that he was hanging out in the wrong place.

    Please make an effort to tag all threads. This will greatly enhance the usability of the forums.
