Which island type do you like the most?

This question was raised by @LetsBrick And since we're in the Pirates forum we have to make a poll about it!

Which one of the building techniques do you like the most when it comes to islands in Lego sets and mocs?

Or do you like more than one technique? Pick your favorites in this multiple choice poll!

Shout out to @LetsBrick for providing the pictures. Thank ye :pir-huzzah2:

I prefer the printed baseplate and the yellow bricks on a blue baseplate. It is not an option here but I also use yellow tiles on a blue baseplate a lot. I use tan plates for space landscapes. The printed baseplate is by far the best looking alternative but the downside is that the shape and size of the island is predetermined.

I voted for 'Slopes curved (Eldorado)' and 'detailed plates' because they allow for a detailed and elaborate coast line.

What also would be interesting to know, aree peoples preferences when it comes to the water building techniques as this goes hand in hand with the islands. There's  some variety from loose trans blue studs, to blue/azure plates, trans blue tiles etc.... If someone is interested to build some examples for a future poll... :wink:
