2 years ago I re-located from my home in Long Island, New York to a new residence, started college and a new carreer. This of course left no room in my schedule for Lego (gasp). But after hearing recent news of a new Pirate line, along with perusing some fine inspirational MOCs on this forum, I thought I'd share what I have. More will be posted as I discover things of note in "cold storage"  :pir-tongue:

Enjoy!

Imperial Guard,

your Brickshelf folder is not yet public. It can take some time for it to get moderated, so I suggest that you deeplink some images (if you don't know how, check out the deeplinking tutorial in the Index) for us before then.

I look foward to seeing your pictures. We can wait though if you don't know how to deeplink. They will probably be up some time tommorrow. Oh and it's LEGO not LEGOS!

I like it but I wouldn't say it fully fits into the pirate theme.

you're 100% right! i drew inspiration from the Blacksmith Shop set developed by Daniel Siskind. My idea of a pirate island was more of a Royal Caribbean colony, that had (on the far side of the palm trees) a pirate base where the pirates could make overland raids into the town, or use a small river to attack it.

You've got a lot of good stuff in your basement Imperial Guard!

I'm not sure if you're aware but we have a How to perform a batch image resize Tutorial.  Threads with an image in their first post usually get more attention so this is something you might want to take advantage of.  Bare in mind we prefer the images to be in .JPG format and no larger than 800 x 600 pixels so as not to burden those with slower Internet connections and smaller monitor.

If you want to display many images in the one post then try using thumbnails, we have also have a Creating Clickable Thumbnails Tutorial to teach you how to do that.

So if you ever want tips on displaying your MOCs to their fullest potential in the forum, check out those tutorials!

Ah! Very good. I like the idea of the "Beyond the Palm Trees". I think the MOC's look good as colonial port buildings. As far as not "fitting in" to the pirate theme, this forum is Piartes - Aztec and the age of sail! so really, they do.
