Vault Kit stl Utility door request

I’ve been working on getting a vault layout set up using the Modiphius Vault stls, but I’ve run into an issue. The Utility doorway that comes with the kit is not the same size as any of the other walls or doors. The main Gear door comes together to be effectively 3 walls long, but the utility door is between 1 and 2 walls wide. For reference:


It would be great if this file could be updated to be a full double-width so that these doors could be integrated into the same grid setup as the other walls.

Let me look into this with the team.

Right, I’ve gone and had a chat with the designer and also jumped into FO4 and messed about with the Vault Creation Kit there.

The basic premise of the way the walls/tiles were designed was on the basis that truly printing a full vault would get prohibitively expensive, so rather than do everything, we envisioned folks would print bespoke room “modules” and then the negative space would be considered corridors once you placed all your rooms onto a mat.

As such the Utility Corridor is not two tiles wide, instead being 1 and a bit as you note above, so doesn’t mesh perfectly if you try to grid out and print everything. But if you make the utility corridor as a stand alone “room” using the negative space explanation above it can be used.

We have had a chat and if we find the time to add to the set, then a fuller version of the two wide utility corridor setup could be explored, with both central and offset doors to fully match the in game version and allow true modularity, but its not on the table right now.

If you want your corridors to match then stick to the 1 tile wide doors and use the utility corridor walls (with all the cabling etc) and make 1 tile wide corridors, or you could go three tiles wide and have a centred door the same way, or you could offset and have a two wide corridor.

If we do do more, we’ll let folks know for sure.

Hope that helps.
