Buff up your bricks ye scally-waggs, for today we are having our very first Classic-Pirates.com Community Build!

For all of you who don't know what a community build is:
A community build is a building challenge open to all EB members. Basically, The staff/volunteers make a list of different buildings that would comprise a town of the late 1700's. Then, each person chooses a building that they would like to build.
To sum it up, You will be building a pirate era town out of Lego.

The Rules

1. The build will officially begin on January 4th and ends on the 15th of March.
2. The staff/judges reserve the right to revoke any entry that does not apply to the rules.
3. If you take a spot, tell us, (so you don't get annoyed when somebody else builds the same thing first).
4. Images no larger than 800 x 600 please, and a maximum of 7 per MOC unless you post smaller images (*)
5. Registration is open to any member, regardless of number of posts , etc.
6. Try to keep the violence to a minimum.
7. You must enjoy making MOCs (though this is a given) and be able to give, as well as take constructive criticism.
8. No LDD entries are allowed. All entries MUST be built with real bricks.
9. Spaces 1, 3 and 4 are 32 x 32 studs, spaces 2,5 and 6 are 16 x 32 studs and the others are 16 x 16 studs.
10. Registration will take place in this thread.
11. Post your entries in the entry thread AND in a new thread inside the Pirate MOC forum (this one is for comments and feedback). The description of your thread should be "EB Community Build".

(*) When taking pictures, please take at least one picture from above your MOC, so that we can try to put them all together at the end. Also, please take them on a white background if possible.

Don't hesitate to ask questions. :pir-classic:
The Golden Rule of this Community Build: Have fun :thumbup:

Commonly asked questions....

Q: Am I allowed to use clone brands, such as megaBlocks, blocko, ect?

A: Not at all. This is a Lego only build.

Q: Am I allowed to use custom weapons, tools, ect. from store like Bickarms and Brickforge?

A: Yes, you can if you want too.

Q: Can I cut/modify bricks?

A: You can if you wish.

Q: Do the buildings have to be closed in or can they have open walls?

A: All buildings (Like houses, Doctors Office, Taverns must be walled in.)

Q: Which skin color minifigs will we be using, flesh or yellow?

A: We'll be using both.

Q: Are we allowed to use custom string/sail?

A: Yes you can.

Q: The base-plate, should it be completely covered with the building or could you add some empty land/beach/water/foliage/rocks?

A: You don't have to cover the whole base-plate with the building, you can cover the leftover are with trees, rocks, flowers ect.

Q: Does it matter what color the base-plate is?

A: Not all, we don't want to restrict someones building limits with a color code.

Credits....

First off, I would like to thank Zorro for giving us the thumbs up to organize this great project, thanks buddy :thumbup:

I also would like to thank Commodore Hornbricker. He did a wonderful job designing the map and he also helped with the building list. Put your hands together for Egor folks!

The following people deserve some recognition....

Captain Blackmoor: He designed the broken map, leaked the pics onto Brickshelf and helped fill in some of the details.
Erdbeereis: I have terrible grammar so I asked Erdy if would help me with that issue, he to gave helpful comments.
Captain Zuloo: Lots of helpful comments.
SlyOwl (Whatever his name is): He made the cool picture of the builder guy.
Admiral Woodhouse: He went out of his way to post the pics of the broken map.
Thanks to all the Shipyardigans for putting a link in there signatures.

Quick Questions, Whats the rules on Custom/Clone brand pieces?

EDIT: And what is the base of this port. As in, Is it Bluecoat or Redcoat or Pirate? Because it will be strange having a Redcoat Fort and then a Bluecoat barracks next to it...

Non clone brands but feel free to use Brickarms, custom figs ect.

I can see your point regarding the factions, but remember that some members lack certain types of minifigures , so it doesn't really matter what type are used. (Except for buildings like the Islanders Village, Pirates Safe House ect.)

I'll take #44, the Soldier's Watch Tower.

Hehe, this should be fun - my first community build! =D

Edit: Oh hey, since this is also the questions thread, I have one: Does baseplate style/color matter at all? I know size does, but is there any standard part/group of parts being used for the plates?

Wow, this is an really great idea.
I saved lots of pictures out of the castle community build. And same now in pirate will be fantastic.

My first wish to build was the first, because of own interests to do it for myself.
But on one hand it is given away and on the other the size limit does not fit my imagination of this one.

So my other wish to build would be the lighthouse, is it still free??
