  3. Location: Donwarr - E01 Tags: Vehicle, Land Vehicle (speeder from last week, only sidecar added, skip if not applicable) [Hannibal] - ZAAEL! If you're still on Donwarr, we need your help NOW! [Zaael] - Heading your way, John. What am I getting myself into? [Hannibal] - After freeing Callahan, we got carried away killing off MANTIS thugs and may have set off a few too many alarms. Our reinforcement will meet you in route. Don't worry, they'll have all the fire power you'll need. [Zaael] - ReinforcemenT? As in singular? I hope this is one Bad dude [Hannibal] - The baddest dude I know, Z... [Dr. Long] - Z... these fools barked up the Long tree. Pew! Pew! Pew! Pew! Pew! Pew! Pew! Pew! Pew! Pew! Pew! Pew! Pew! Pew!

  5. two are attached with a 4 stud snot 1x1 brick, the other two have a 1x2 (old) hinge plate because they use hollow studs and a rubber band between the plate and the leaf. If that's not clear and you really want to know, I can try to get some breakdown shots later in the week.
  6. Location: Forring - F03 Tags: Vehicle, Land Vehicle Famed Octan inventor, Zaael, graciously accepted Executive John Hannibal's request for a new pair of legs and waited to meet Hannibal between jobs on Forring. Install would be easy based on the specs CLAPPIE sent over, but their rendezvous required some secrecy on the technically MANTIS planet. AD 3816 Brough Superior SS800 on Forring in the Andromeda Galaxy by Ryan McBryde, on Flickr [Hannibal] - I can't thank you enough for the legs, Big Z. [Zaael] - You know I'm here for you anytime, John. I'm sorry your stuck in such a sad state of affairs, but I hope you know that I'll do anything I can to help you out. [H] - Yeah, I do know that. Just let me know how I can return the favor. [Z] - Meh. So, where to now? [H] - I still have to link up with my flight programing patrolling over Ertauq, but that'll be easy in this new interface CLAPPIE designed. Then Hombre and I have some wetwork planned on Donwarr. [Z] - Damn John, you know you died on Donwarr? [H] - Yeah... It's something we've got to do. Hombre is a consummate professional, he'll see us through. [Z] - Well after looking you over, I've got some ideas for your torso. Those arms can't be comfortable in a cockpit. Let's plan to meet over Donwarr to fix you up.
  7. Location: The Fascini Cluster - E11 Tags: Civil Building, Spaceship, Vehicle, Land Vehicle [Hannibal] - These legs are just nonsense, Lu. I feel like I'm scuttling around like a... um... the phrase escapes me, but you get what I mean. [Lu] - Yeah, I think they were meant for space mechs. CLAPPIE is still learning about RL... stuff. [Hannibal] - Everything okay, Lu? Your breathing rate and body language indicate that something is wrong. [Lu] - How much do you remember, John, I mean outside of the different skills you've been picking up? [Hannibal] - My first extraction had some general memories, like my name, who I worked for, what my job was, but nothing concrete to back it up. Most of what we've pulled through Kawashita's network has been skills based so that I can hunt down the rest of me, but there's not much behind them. I could tell you what color the lighthouse was off the Heinlein crater of Camp Promethei, but I only know second-hand that I had a family. Hell, I didn't know we were friends until CLAPPIE told me. [Lu] - Do you remember killing anybody? I mean, along with your combat training? [Hannibal] - Yeah. That's part of it. That and I've killed a dozen Zoids and some cyborgs since my extraction. I'm told my flight training killed a whole MANTIS death squad off Ertauq in cold blood, but I haven't synced up with those memories yet. [Lu] - Does it bother you, the killing? [Hannibal] - My combat training extraction came with some rules about when killing is appropriate, but I'm still not sure about the logic. Have I offended your sensibilities on the subject? [Lu] - No, no... I was just curious... Landscape used last week. - - - Outside a mining supervisor's quarters in the Fascini Cluster. Dora had secured the facility by stealing the supervisor's ship and cutting his suits oxygen supply when he tried to use his asteroid jumper. The latest upload contained locations of trapped memories within MANTIS and Kawashita networks, intel on most previously held Octan systems, and John's personal profiles of the Octan employees he would need to extract his files. [Hannibal] - Upload complete, Dora. I think I know a friend that can get me some decent legs now. We'll pick up my flight training on the way. [Dora] - That sounds wonderful, John. It'll be so nice to see more of your friends again. [Hannibal] - There was a system missing from the file, Jurin II. Know anything about it? [Dora] - It must have been a significant file if it was split from the main; but no, I don't have anything on it and many of the Octan employees that were stationed on Jurin II died in the Mantis invasion. Maybe Mabel will know something. It looks like she's on Donwarr...

  9. It's a sliding scale that would be different for each judge, so there is no hard rule about what distinguishes something as distinguished :) You won't get DQ'd for building a generic desert, but you won't get as many points as you would if you included a moisture evaporator and sand-igloo. My Jedha as Commenor build would certainly be pushing it to some, but for a lot of these planets there is no defined architecture or aesthetic, so you'll have to get creative and hope the judges like your interpretation. For Endor, I should have said, "just any tree." I would expect an Endor build to include trees that are distinctly redwoods and housing to account for that lifestyle. Without getting into the particulars of each planet, your job in this episode is to make the judges think you're accurately representing the planet. How you do that is up to your artistic license. Browsing though concept art (especially McQuarrie's) should help.
  10. From our PM, just wanted to make the explanation open to everybody. Yes. We wanted to make sure that people don't just build a generic desert and call it Tatooine, or a tree and call it Endor. It should be like a postcard, capturing the feel of the planet and something that makes it distinctive.
  11. Hot damn, Bob. Glad to be seeing so many builds from you lately. Any pictures of the guts/mechanics of the stone?
  12. Very nice ship. Reminds me of Sky-Fi. My three year old saw this and told me he's going to get that guy (Kodan) and that ship for his birthday :)

  14. Location: Arium Minor - F09 Tags: Civil Building, Spaceship, Vehicle, Land Vehicle Extraction 1.1 Extraction 1.2 Extraction 1.3 Extraction 1.4 Extraction 1.5 The Ghost in the Machine (LucasLaughing) Above the newly acquired factory on Arium Minor, a Kawashita shuttle approaches with portions of John Hannibal's personality and four droids carrying the few memories he has been able to extract through the Kawashita intelligence network. [Extract 1] "Bring it in over the ice and we'll walk in. I want to see how the new security drones are working out. CLAPPIE says they've all but eliminated the Zoid problem and freed all of the slaves running the planet's infrastructure, like that lighthouse ahead." The micro factory in the background belongs to Lucas.
