[KEY TOPIC] Official LEGO Sets made in LDD

4708 posts in this topic

Since the release of 4.0, I've been able to complete another Agents set to my satisfaction.

Here's 8633 Speedboat Rescue from the Agents theme! It's in two parts.

LXF File for Part One

8633_speedboat_rescue_2.png

LXF File for Part Two

Errors:

  • In Part One, Agent Trace should be holding onto the handlebars attached to that chain. I'd be glad if anyone's willing to help with that, but good luck. It's hard enough dealing with handlebars when they're in front of a fig; having a fig hold onto handlebars behind their back is chaos.
  • In Part Two, the net is supposed to be folded, rolled, and stashed in the net launcher. This is not possible in LDD. The net has been left to the side
  • Likewise, the string is supposed to be tied between the boat and the flick-fire harpoon, then rolled into the ship. This, too, is impossible with LDD. The string has been left to the side.
  • Any parts with prints that are unavailable on LDD have been left blank.

I've been hard at work updating my previous sets-- so far I've updated 8969, 8634, 8967, 8630, 6048, 6036, 2586, 6093, 20003, 20008, 20017, and 4993. There are several left to do-- some will take a long time like the Shuttle Adventure and Castle Giant Chess Set-- but rest assured I'm hard at work on many of these remaining sets!

Here's a lovely set that I thought I'd make as a change from Star Wars: 7573 Battle Of Alamut.

LXF File

As mentioned in the errors topic, the new flame part doesn't fit in the telescope part.

Correct prints are replaced/missing

@KDM: It's LXF file, not xlf. :wink:

Good start. Just stay away from SW! :grin:

No ARC accessories and Carbonite Block.

The new carbonite block is in the minifig accessories section towards the end.

You also have to say when the set has been made someone else already. :wink:

Alrighty then. I made the changes :classic:

Updated to LDD 4

@KDM: It's LXF file, not xlf. :wink:

Warm Gold can actually be obtained by clicking View>New Themes>DesignByMe at the top of the screen. This gives you the DesignByMe palette, which contains some Warm Gold parts-- I tend to use the goblet in the Minifig Accessories category. Place a warm gold part, then just click View>New Themes>LEGO Universe, and you'll be able to use the eyedropper tool to get the color you want.

Metallic Gold is a harder color to get, since I don't know its official name or color code. But I tend to use 147 Sand Yellow Metallic, which is the closest match in available colors. It appears if you hover the cursor over Reddish Gold.

Also, the hand-blade is on there. It's part 88812. I'll admit, it took me a while to find it (it's hard to identify by its thumbnail) and I only knew to look for it because I had seen it when I first went through to see how many new parts were in 4.0.

Aanchir, do you have a list of more colors where you don't know the official name and color, and I can try to do some investigations. It would also be good with some (fairly recent) example sets and parts where that color is used.

BTW: I'm now proclamining you our LDD Master of LEGO Colors :classic:

Alrighty then. I made the changes :classic:

I think he meant - who did the original set that you modded into LDD4 version?

Thanks for the help, Colour Master. :wink:

I wasn't aware Warm Gold could still be obtained that way. I'm updating that in my recent sets now.

I used the Metallic Sand Yellow for Metallic Gold. Maybe it would be good for everyone to use the same substitute colour for missing colours.

I use Silver for Metallic Light Grey and Chrome Silver.

I don't know how I missed it. It'll be fixed on the updated version soon.

I think he meant - who did the original set that you modded into LDD4 version?

Actually, I meant prateek noting that both you and I made that set before he did, as per Calabar's new rule.

I do plan to update my own version to LDD4 along with all my other sets.

EDIT: Updated 7573 Battle of Alamut

4402 - Sea riders - Creator

Updated to LDD 4.1.7

4402_sea_riders_copia.jpg

LXF

Errors

- Wings 3933 and 3934 not available; replaced with other parts.

- Windscreen x224 not available; replaced with wedges 41749 and 41750 which externally look the same, but internally they leave no room for the seat's headrest, which is left aside.

- The cockpit cannot be perfectly closed.

- The available universal joint (61903) is shorter than the required one (3712c01); it was then necessary to use longer axles. The alignment tool was not useful to connect those joints, they had to be aligned with small manual adjustements.

- The exhaust tubes 75535 can't be connected to 1x4 brick w.4 knobs by vertical studs.

- 10021 - USS Constellation - by marco9999

Lists of previously reported irregular sets here and here.

I don't know how to fix it. The problems I see with this models are the ones which have already been reported: impossible connections lattice+studs and unavailable parts. Please give me some hints.

Thanks.

The post is "illegal" simply because the preview image is too big (maximum size allowed is 512x512)

Nothing related to how the set is built! :wink:

PS: you did double post!

Sorry, LDD noob mistake. :grin: Thanks for pointing out. Already fixed!

Don't worry I'll let you do the SW sets. Somebody has got to give Classic Town some love, might as well be me (a Classic Town lover-inside :wub:).

Same comment about the windscreen colour.

Color-wise, Transparent Brown is the smoke color you were looking for. Transparent Brown is the official name LEGO uses.

Modifications (due to unavailable parts in LDD):

2) No print on the shield and horse

None of your images are working, because for some reason you've got some random numbers in the front (between the http:// and the www). Could you fix that problem in your posts?
