    EB Xmas Raffle 2017 - Winners per day calendar

    Greatest manatee of all time arrived yesterday: Prize A !!! Thanks, CopMike!
  6. Here comes my ideal christmas tree. The story behind my christmas tree is the so called christmas truce around christmas 1914 (World War 1). In the week leading up to the 25th, French, German, and British soldiers crossed trenches to exchange seasonal greetings and talk. There were joint burial ceremonies and prisoner swaps, while several meetings ended in carol-singing. Check out the full story on Wikipedia.
  7. Wow, Scrubs, I'm deeply impressed. Are you sure it's a rendering? It's hardly possible for me to find any sign that this is a rendering. Maybe the scratches on the green curved parts at the same angle of around 45 degree are a tiny bit unlikely. Great job!
  8. if you check "xml" in LDview a lot of ldraw parts get replaced by lgeo parts. lgeo parts are more nicely shaped, e.g. with rounded edges. Lgeo parts are intended to generate a higher level of realistic renders. You can see this on your renders above. Furthermore Lgeo uses its own color definition file (=> Which means that Ldraw colors and Lgeo colors may not be the same. Regarding the missing number I think it's just a human error. So luckilly you have no problem. It's just the way Ldraw and Lgeo works... Using pov-ray you may easily tweek all colors to your needs. Search the pov file (no xml) for the following code: #ifndef (LDXColor0) // Black #declare LDXColor0 = LDXOpaqueColor(0.019608,0.07451,0.113725) #end If you wish to have it real black change it to: #ifndef (LDXColor0) // Black #declare LDXColor0 = LDXOpaqueColor(0,0,0) #end If you wish to change the lgeo colors you have to modify regards papacharly
  9. Did you already gave a try to the following? Clear the pov-ray command line. Then add +fn +ua: +fn generates png file output +ua generates transparent background For my pov-ray 3.7 it works fine. Hope, it works the same way on your system. regards papacharly

    [MOC] Shackleton's Endurance

    Glad you like it, thanks. Indeed, in 2007 there were 11 bottles of whisky found underneath Shackleton's antartic refuge at Cape Royds, McMurdo Sound. But this whisky was hidden in the years 1907 to 1909 during Shackleton's Nimrod expedition. The goal of this expedition was to reach the south pole.

    [MOC] Shackleton's Endurance

    Me too!! Thanks for your reply.
  15. Shackleton's Endurance in Minifig Scale In August 1914, Sir Ernest Henry Shackleton started an incredible expedition to the Antarctic.This voyage is also known as the Imperial Trans-Antarctic Expedition. Endurance was the name of the ship in which Sir Ernest Shackleton sailed for the Antarctic. On board were 28 men and 69 dogs. Shackleton planned to cross the Antarctic on foot. But shortly before its arrival in the Antarctic the Endurance became locked in ice and was finally crushed. Thus the legendary survival of Shackleton and his crew began.
