Okay, we since we have an index for MOC Ships I think we should also have an Index for the land based MOCs, someone said something about this in the discussion thread from the Ship index but no one ever said something about it later, so I make this thread...

Do you like the idea of an Index for the land based MOCs? Vote now!

Seems like a very logical step to me.
If we do this, we have a full index of all the MOCs (together with the index for MOC Ships) in the Pirate MOC forum.
I find this very important since the forum is always growing and some older MOCs get a bit lost.

And if there ever comes a pirate portal page, this will have to be done anyway.

Mr Bonaparte, would you like to do this? Since you're the index man X-D .

If he doesn't want to I'm also willing to do this...

I'll start another search in the pirate MOC forum.


Query, should this be called 'land based' MOCS, or should it be all MOCS that aren't ships.  I mean we could potentially have mocs that aren't ships, but aren't landbased either... like custom figures or sea creatures or the like...

I think it should be a MOC index excluding ships, since I am not sure, but I would guess there probably aren't as many forts/ports as there are ships.

It seems we have two volunteers!

Is there any way that you two could work on this project together?

Custom figures are mostly covered in the Library.
I was thinking of making a separate part in the index for canons, ... .
Anyway, I'll get a better view on this when I have searched through the MOCs.
Once an initial version is ready (I guess in max 2 weeks), I'll open a discussing thread as well.

Who is the other one Mr. Phes?
I'll wait a bit before starting until we have this sorted out.

It seems Mister Phes has been into the rum again!

I thought ZCerberus was volunteering too but I must have misread his post.

Carry on lads...

It would be a step in the righ direction seems like a good move! ;-)

I
think It should include mocs, of pirate hide-out docks, stuff actually on land. Like what Mr. Zceberus was talking about, no boats after all it is called the land based moc(or whatever) If someone creates this It would be incridable easy to help myself on my own mocs.I think IT is a wonderful idea.

Now, now Mister Phes stay out of that RUM.

Also please DO NOT have me do  this I am very inexzperience in this kind of thing and would probally screw-up the topic beyond belief!

Bonaparte has already volunteered, Capn Kirk 911.  Besides we wouldn't force any user undergo a project like this because its something that a user has to want to do.  Having mentioned that, users who do more than is expected of them will not be forgotten.

I'll add another yes voice! If possible could the list be broken up by size or type as 'land based is very comprehensive?

I have started the "Index: Land based MOCs".
My first step is to search each page on the pirate MOC forum and make a list. That's what I'm currently doing.
When this is finished, we already have a clear overview and can start discussing of the best way to break them up in groups.

Good job Bonaparte! Why is the skull in the index? And Mr Phes' raft? They're not really land based ere they?

You're right, the skull and raft are removed.

Step 1 (collecting the MOCs) is finished!

You make me think Mr Bonaparte... perhaps we need an index for other things like skulls, cannons, rafts etc...

What also brings me to this point: is the Mortar in the right place?

We could, but there are not so many "other things" left that are not already in this index!

You're right.

But I'll do a search for other MOCs to confirm you're right...

Great work on the index Mr. Bonaparte!

I posted another land based pirate MOC just now, to add to the index if possible  :)
