I just received the new 3D Doors pack from retail and I have a question. I did some looking around here and didn't see an existing answer for this.

I get why there are green and blue door bases, to coincide with the green/blue door tile objectives in the missions.

But why all the other colors? Did they do that just for homebrew, or have they stated it will be for expansions or what?

You got it in one, the extra colours are for homebrew missions!

In 'modern-day' Zombicide, thee are lots of colours. Perhaps these doors anticipated future needs for Z:BP

Thanks guys!

Homebrew made a certain amount of sense to me, but I didn't know about the door colors in modern Z-Cide.

"Future proofing" them for expansions is a great idea.

for the modern zombicide doors;
Blue/green are standard
white/purple are for prison doors/switch and yellow for switch related doors for season 2
the Mall doors are for the toxic city mall expansion
and the other colors come with season 3 so all colors are eventually needed if you play any of the related scenarios.

im sure for Z: BP more colors will eventually be used as well

I'm not really adding anything new here, but as an observation; with Zcide Modern, CMoN was initially unsure how successful terrain packs would be, so they added things somewhat piecemeal to the KS projects.

The door sets, for Modern were exclusives.

Z:BP, is the first time we are seeing a terrain set go to market, so I'm thinking that the future-proofing implies not only that future sets will have additional door colors, but also that doors are in enough demand that it makes sense for them to make a one-set fits all kind of thing.

I feel that the homebrew advantages, on the other hand, are mostly a happy bonus. All of that said, I was a little surprised that Massive Darkness got its own door set, better long-term thinking would have been to make more generic terrain sets that could work with multiple games. MD does not require colored doorsteps while Z:BP does, however, it would have been cheaper to make a set of grey doorsteps for MD...

But, I'm a sucker, I'll have both and will happily mix and match for more variety.
