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.
Trying to work with small scale beings, especiall…

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…

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 >
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 >
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 >
