The Inn (#33) for us please!!! 16x16 with the facade facing the Town Square, right? One more question - should this be a CC-style modular building or a "classic" open-back building (if it's the latter, I presume the "open back" should be the one overlooking the street and the Blacksmith, right?)

This should be TONS of fun - thanks for organizing this, guys!

P.S.: On second thought, I guess we could also try our hand at coming up with a nice Town Square (#5) as well... Besides, we will be able to build/present both structures that way! So could we also be registered for that please, or is it one entry per user only?

A great idea to get some pirate building around here! If I could, may I take the soldier's barracks.
Any colour suggestions somebody?

I would like to make a suggestion based on my impressions of the castle community build.
I missed the presentation of the entire display.
My suggestion is, that everyone take their normal pictures and one special shot from above.
With this shot, it will be possible to show the whole display like the map of this build.
We should use a special distance to take the picture and a specific size to simplify the combination of the pictures.

What do you think?

I'd like to register for one #48, Islander Village, to start with. :pir-laugh:

Are we allowed to sign up for/submit multiple different builds? 'Cause I may just nabthe House of Ill Repute ( :pir-wink: ) or the Dentist as well.

I like that idea. I'll add it to the first post unless anymore opposes.

Why don't you start with the one, and then once you're done you can take a new one. We want to make sure everyone gets a chance to build something.

Glad to see so much interest from everyone! Happy building, and I look forward to seeing the great models!

Most definitely. I needed the incentive to get building again and besides, I've always wanted to build a Pirate MOC - I'm sure my significant Otter will also join in and be just as enthusiastic about it. I already feel inspired - and will start with the project as soon as my exams are over (that is, by the end of January)

Just 2 quick questions:

Firstly, what will go in between the buildings? In other words, what will go in the space that isn't occupied by people's MOC's?
Second, does anyone have any pictures of a really small village church that's as wide as it is long, preferably from england, spain, or france?

As of right now, I don't think there will be anything in between. Ratshot should be able to tell you for sure.

I have two questions here......

The Soldier's fort is supposed to be on a 32x32 baseplate. Are two 16x32's stuck together okay for this?

Also, could I use the Island print 32x32 baseplate? the fort wouldn't be covering the entire baseplate though.

Thanks, and good luck to all the participators!

I know that you guys already planned this entire thing out, but with the massive influx of activity this has brought, I have to say that it looks like this will get filled up pretty fast - in the event that it does, will you be opening a second build like the Star Wars community Venator project?

As of now there aren't any plans, but I'm sure we will consider it as this seems to be quite popular. :pir-tongue:  It wouldn't be too hard to expand a bit.
