Boom. There you go. I also recoded the entire 3rd Person Controller. Now it's a lot more like LEGO Universe but it also has a bunch of new bugs as shown in the video.Read more >
I'm original.... not.Read more >
Well, uh... hmmmm. LEGO really does want to make their own stuff, huh?
The game's currently in early access: http://store.steampowered.com/app/332310/
It's basically Minecraft but for LEGO. It's easier to build and is currently only for single player. Multiplayer is on their roadmap.
Best played with a controller like all other LEGO games. The game's targeting the younger generation, as usual.
It's not like LEGO Universe. This one's focusing all on the building and creations. You don't get the MMO or leveling up feels. You don't really have an inventory either. Once you unlock the items, vehicles, creatures, and sets, you just need to buy them. That's it. You keep everything you have. + Infinitely generated world
+ Build anything
- No RPG

https://soundcloud.com/mvpeets/oasis-warriors-garden-full-version I finally got around to finishing the thing up... so yeah, here it is. I also set the old one to private so the song doesn't play twice when you just play through everything. (Hopefully.)Read more >
Whew, had me there for a bit, Unity. I'm glad you made a comeback against Unreal Engine 4.
Unity 5 is now released for everyone to access and download.
The "Free" version of Unity is now "Personal." You now get all the features of Pro with the limitation of the Unity splashscreen when you run the game. There's also the revenue thing but we don't care for our purpose.
I recommend everyone to download Unity 5 Personal and mess around with it.Read more >
What the title says.

This is actually a rather old score (I think I had intended for it to be used in LNA!) that I transferred from an XML file into Sibelius First, resurrected from the dead, and finished up. I'll probably end up lengthening it so it's no longer one minute long, but it sounds pretty cool. Listen to it here.Read more >
Pretty sure this is the first time all of you hear my actual voice. Hope I don't sound too weird.

I've been hiding in a cave, isolated from everything all my life and now i've returned and i have no idea how MasterOshowatt got here.
I've been thinking about working on java script again as a new year's resolution, maybe even try Unity. I've been thinking about modelling as well.
I have no new concepts. Surprisingly enough.
My art skills are very good now, so if you want me to draw something i can.
Yeah i don't have a lot to say here.Read more >
I understand that there will likely be a bit of a knee-jerk reaction to seeing LDD screenshots in a project for LEGO game-making, and I even felt a bit disgusted uploading these images. I can't just render every concept that comes to mind, though, so LDD it is unfortunately.
Not all of these are necessarily things I think will fit in LDD, and a lot of these still have imperfections or are at very basic stages. The point of this blog is mainly to perhaps inspire something or lead to a discussion; some of these designs, if popular, could work their way into the game, or perhaps you guys will be able to take something I failed at and turn it into something brilliant. :P Anyway, on with the blog.

Since the whole "Sharing Progress" thing is not as necessary now that we've been reduced to a handful of members, I figured I'd just put my progress here. It's not as cool or helpful as what Allen's progress has been, but I'm trying my best to make some headway.
I made a short-legged minifigure for characters like the dwarves and shorter ice monsters (provided we're still doing the latter). It was made with Allen's Minifigure 34 as a starting point, so the legs themselves would probably have to be transferred over to whatever the current model is, but hey, now we have it. :P
Took LeoCAD's book piece and modified it/added to it so that all the normals are good, it has interior detail, etc. Some detail may be able to removed further if the tri…

Lately I've been focusing on the LEGO side of a Lego game. That is, technique. And here's some stuff. First, a WIP of a dilapidated medieval cottage...
And then this, which you have to see all of (and read) to appreciate. http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/395563
Anyway -- that's that so far. I have a bunch of other WIPs sitting around, but that's the gist of my current skill level. I'd say it's pretty "up there." :PRead more >
Despite its title, I have no issue with it being used in this game.

So... yeah... it's been quite a while. I've been praticing more modeling and this is the result.
30+ hours in? I forgot. It's pretty much a very very long time.
The models I made are based on the anime Sword Art Online.
On a more serious note related to game design and 3D modeling:
When you play it, you should be aware of what's actually there. For example, you see the middle 3 squares on the fountain here. Are they actually there or just an illustion? Because in game design, you have to decrease the poly count to make the game run smoother. I can't possibly risk having a 30K high poly water fountain in a game like this (Yes, I made one and it's over 30K poly) This water fountain in the game only has 766 poly compare to the 30K. I modeled b…

Hello! I am from Brickipedia. I was looking through all the wiki today and heard you guys are making a game. I am definitley interested and would love to join.

Thanks and have a great day! -DCCNRead more >
I mentioned this guy to BrickfilmNut a few times but i think i know i guy who could do some music for us (other than Mvp). He has lots of techno music and he's a good friend of mine. He's on rock raiders united and yes, he did play LEGO Universe.
"Icicles" (Icy themed music)
"Life on Mars" (Quicktech space themed music)
"Tropical" (Tropical themed music)
"Xalax" (Alien themed music, based on the LEGO Racers 2 planet Xalax, includes what probably is Rocket Racer yelling, or just a generic character)
Comment if you like this guy's music. If you want him to help us out with the music just ask me and i'll go ask him if he would like to help.Read more >
Number of Polys: 680K triangles
Time: 10+ hours? I don't know; I was sick.
Yeah... this is what did while I was sick.... I'm not done though. I need to make a low poly version of this and apply all sorts of maps and stuff, then it can be used in Unity. But anyway... this is my first model with over 4K triangles...
Real world models make my LEGO models look like toys... oh wait.....

This was sent from a contact form:
"I'm Knightoffaith, acting representative from a fan-group that is creating a LEGO game called The War of the Bricks, and our partner project, The Imagatrix War. It has come to the forefront of our attention that we cannot operate through the LEGO Message Boards and the LEGO.com Galleries going into the future as we have been doing currently. Because of this, we have decided to ask LEGO to give us the necessary tools to be able to comply with their rules and continue working on our game through their website.
An explanation of what we are looking for, which was originally the letter we were going to send but is not our acting mission statement, can be found on the LMBs topic for The Imagatrix war (Link: ht…

Beta opens. That's pretty much it. It's simpler and easier than LEGO Universe. (They are also still using LU's soundtracks, and I find it quite offensive to LU.) It's a game for kids. What do you expect? But, anyway, go play if you want to.Read more >

So as everyone active here knows, I once started on a model called the X-Pack. It was my first complex Lego model. I modeled the bricks and assembled the bricks in blender. Everyone thought it looked great. Even I thought it looked great. With my ability to model any standard brick from a single 1x1 and then assemble them in a precise, accurate way, I would have been able to do almost anything in regards to making worlds. But as time went on, there were two small but glaring problems that were constantly nagging me.
- My model was composed of bricks I had made from a 1x1. That 1x1 I had traced from a diagram/blueprint/thing. And while I had traced it to the best of my ability, the brick that came out of it was not completely accurate. That di…

Since we are making little progress, why don't we see if we can change things... I heard that we want this game to have a good story and have good, rich gameplay, yet playing as a character you had created also. So, one thing only a few games have is the abundance of creativity. Going beyond "shoot'em ups" and sticking to a theme that everyone will enjoy. Steampunk/Sci-Fi. Now hear me, out. I've been rejected so many times about this... But image that we can take a basic story then manipulate it to make our own and maintain a good game. Basically what LU did. And, let's face it. Who doesn't want giant airship battles? So in this I want to say, let's throw away what we did before and try this!Read more >
Hey LNA Fans,
It's LNA's 2nd Birthday, read the post at our website for more info. :) http://lnatest.wordpress.com/2014/02/06/happy-2nd-birthdayanniversary-lego-nexus-adventures/Read more >
So i got here from LEGO Nexus Adventures and i saw some of my folks from Brickipedia
So Hi :)Read more >
Today is January 30th, 2014. Exactly 2 years ago, LEGO Universe was closed. I can't believe it's already been 2 years. I remember when groups like The Nexus Project, LEGO Wonderlands, and all the other projects that pretty much just failed, including our own. We were the ones who sticked together and are the ones who are left now. I find it to be really amazing that the end of one game actually brought us together. So I guess, in a way, the end of LEGO Universe was a good thing. Otherwise, I could have never meet you all.Read more >
Because I understand nothing about Photon Servers, I'm going to try SmartFoxServer 2x instead. It looks just slightly more appealing. That's all I have to say. Servers. Are. Painful.
PS: It does look like I can create a login system soon so I guess that's good news.
Update #1: 1/28
Login system works but the Sign Up system is giving me problems. I'll be back after I learn some MySQL.
Update #2: 1/30
Both the sign up and login systems now work. It's now possible to create and join rooms in the same server. I'll be moving onto synchronization of positions and directions of players.Read more >
That's right Nenen has done an interview on LNA, we have done our best to keep it quiet till now and since we are finished you are now free to comment on the blog post.

Jeyo again. I'd like to bring up the point of work going unnoticed or unacknowledged by team members. This has been the pattern so far:
- I post some work.
- Nobody says anything about it.
- I prod people to post their throughts.
- A few do.
- I get frustrated.
Sure doesn't seem very team-like to me, posting my work and having it ignored...I don't know about the rest of you, but I like to be acknowledged. I like people to post their thoughts on stuff I submit. I need criticism, or else how will I know if I'm going in a direction people like? Seriously, it gets quite frustrating for me when I post something and nobody takes any notice. Even when I nudge people, only a few post stuff. So can we all agree to inspect, acknowledge and comment on someone's work (n…Read more >
I know this is really Deus's area of expertise, but I thought I'd give this a go...
I hope you're reading this, Kep. Based on your description, my rough concept art (that I haven't posted) and Storm's design of the smaller worms, I have designed a head for the Sandworm Boss on the desert world. If everyone approves, I will continue and create the body. If you don't, I can redesign or scrap it. It has no eyes, but instead a long head that can swallow a minifig whole, three teeth in its gaping red maw and several long, tentacle-like "feelers"--whiskers, if you will--on the back of the head. Thoughts so far?Read more >
I've been taking a look at some of the other projects' wikis, namely LNA, and I was suddenly hit with a revelation that was right in front of my eyes the entire time.
LNA and most other fan-made projects have been trying to launch a game with a boatload of features out of the gate. That's great, except when the few developers that we have dabble in and out of certain tasks, getting each item barely started. Then, we'll rethink everything because it's not getting done fast enough, and all that work goes to waste. I, at least, have seen that happen over and over again.
Now, I'm not back here trying to tell you guys what to do; I'm just sharing a thought. What am I trying to say with all of this rambling? Simply, keep it simple. Don't worry abo…Read more >
This is a WIP so far but here is a model of a ship which I have made...
So I will have a drawing up soon and that's it. (I'm not applying for story writing as I shouldn't give my ideas as some are very complex and stupid.)Read more >
I know, I know. But I need to make sure I can absorb all this, make it useful, etc. I'm gonna be busy discussing this with Ferf and think about map ideas.
I'll be back soon, but I'm also limited by school. After 3 days...8th Grade with all honors already looks like a challenge :S.
So yeah. Kelp, when I come back I'll have the Puppet-Master idea finalized.
Cya in a week!Read more >
I only recently brought this up but I have been having some misgivings about how the current Inferion is envisioned. Currently, Inferion are essentially minifigures in armor. That would make more sense to me if, say, they were an army of evil minifigures...but they're not. They're beings of energy, created by Korrigahnn, a being of energy.
I have no problem with the idea of a minifigure enemy, but I do feel that it makes little sense for Korrigahnn to create minifigures to fight minifigures. It seems more like he'd create a horde of fire/shadow/whatever elementals who are roughly shaped like minifigures. The way I currently see them is as mostly immaterial beings with solid hearts (gems of a sort?) in the rough shape of a minifigure...kind …Read more >
Its finally here. The game that Funcom has been spending over a year working on. The game that makes me wanna take the people who make Chima and force them to shut down. Anyway,
Now for what I've been thinking about...what does this mean for us? Funcom actually made a decent-looking game that shows promise. I can already see it outliving Chima. But...what will we do? Sure, we could make an amazing game...but what does this mean. I don't want us to die because we're been shadowed by this, but still...
If anything to me, this means 3 things.
- We need to make this game look great. Good details, good story, etc.
- We need to make this game play…
Just some community discussion. Apparently, Atom and Stormbringer seem to think that the Volcanic and Obsidian worlds can and should be combined, while Boba is opposed to it. Are there any other opinions?Read more >
Hello Guys, Atom here, and this is my ideas post! This is where I post all of my ideas for SoA, in my attempt to help it become an amazing game. :)

Alright, so far, we don't seem to be having too much conflict surrounding the single-member-led worlds. That's good, for sure. Of course, there are still situations like in the hub world where our writers will clash on certain aspects of the story. Our head writers, Jeyo and ErkelonJay (with Mvp and Atom siding with each writer respectively), will have two clashing ideas that both seem equally good to a large part of the community, but neither will step down and that's where conflict begins. As such, we have to improvise the system a little bit again. Nothing major, in the sense that everything will change for all of you, but important enough that I would like all of your attention.
The first change is that, unless facing strong opposition …Read more >
Hey guys, is me. So, I've been busy for the past 2 days brainstorming about the final battle with Korrigahnn. So, without further ado, my ideas:Note, this is not complete, and will take some time to finish. I expect to go all the way to a verison 5.0.
In version 1.0, A lot of people hated the idea of the black hole. However, I will not have the fight in some boring old fortress. Yell at me all you want, not gonna happen. So, I present my new location:
After defeating the guardians, you head into the final chamber of the fortress, where you find Korri, who has yet to absorb the energy due to him having had resistance from barriers set up by the first builders. Just as he breaks through though, a final countermeasure appears, a wormhole that tel…

I'm gone for about 30 to 36 hours. Back to the U.S.
- Minifigure 34
- More and better mirrored bones
- Easier to animate bones with guides
- Failed network tests x 20
- Stopped using my old controller and used the 3DBuzz Tutorial Controller instead
- Adjusted camera vaules to suit the game
- Added camera collision (near perfect, if you somehow get inside the minifigure's head, weird things will happen)
- Re-implemented double Jump System (The original script I wrote for my old controller worked perfectly here, woohoo!)
- Added the simplest Inventory System without any GUI (Unity GUI has too many draw calls)Read more >
Recently, three users (Mvp, Keps, and Erk) have stated that they will consider leaving if the project does not regain activity. In response to these concerns, I have made the following blog post.
First off, not everybody is as inactive as they may seem. A lot of us are just working on our own separate yet still project-related things, and don't always feel the need to talk about them. Of course, this problem could be solved with increased use of the Sharing Progress page, but even if some users do not use it, you can usually be sure that at least some seemingly-gone users are still "active".
In addition, the "new" project is still trying to get on its feet, and there were a lot of things that needed to be done before everyone could start wor…Read more >
Okay, there has been a lot of debate about this and I think it's time we settled it.
Do we include the alien commander known as Krohoth/Oblivion, who will betray Korrigahnn and steal the energy stone for his own? Or do we not, in which case the game will be easier to make but only have Korrigahnn and his boys as the main enemies? (There will be minor enemies not affiliated with either, too: pirates, animals and other enemies like that.)Read more >
Hey guys. Just wanted to let you all know that, starting early next week, I'll be gone for two weeks and will likely not be able to be contacted. During that time, please contact Boba, Matt, Jeyo, Mvp, or Allen instead.Read more >
