Organizing the BlueBrick thread.
Thanks to the overwhelming number of contributions, I put some thought into how we could organize things so we can make sure everybody can get a good overview of which GIFs are available, which are in the pipeline, and what is still needed.
The Brickster and I sent a few PM messages back and forth last night, discussing a fixed index thread just for BlueBrick similar to that which is currently available for the trains.
It would also include a link to the help file (which Alban Nanty will try to complete this weekend), and any guidelines or requirements that have to be met. The Brickster was quite happy to help with this so now I just need to find out what Alban thinks... and what you think!! At the end of the day, this if for you guys. One requirement will be that you post your GIFs on another site to which the index can be linked too (brickshelf etc). So please give me feedback on this idea!
One thing that is available right now, is the PDF ToDo list to which you can find a link in my signature. This will give you an idea of not only what has been done, but also what is in process, and what is missing (currently a lot of .xml files). By looking at the list you can really see how much has been contributed in the past few weeks. The other option would be to just use that PDF as an index (with links to GIFs), but then it would only be accessible through my signature. You guys decide. Note that the current list only includes the contributions from this thread, and not the GIFs that are already available in BlueBrick.
If there are sets you would like to contribute as a GIF please send me a PM Message
with the theme (train, town), set or part number, official description and whether this is a new or an improved GIF for BlueBrick. I will then include you in the PDF list and will mark it with "P" for "in process" so that others know to build something else.
Don't give me more that 2 or 3 at a time though, unless you know that you will be able to get them done within the space of a week.
If you notice any errors in the PDF file please send me a PM Message to let me know.
Today I will be adding some more low piece sets.
Level Crossings 4539 and 4532
Post Office 6362
Cycle shop 6699
You can find a link to my BlueBrick Brickshelf folder below.
The bigger sets will be done by Sunday. They are marked with "P" in the ToDo list.
