  1. @pagicence There is not a real reservation. I mean you can built the sets and add them in the LDD Official Sets topic even if another builder has already added it to the topic. Even if the set is the same, every build has its unique solutions that makes it interesting. The booking is intended as a reference, but builders are free to follow it or not. If it is the first entry in the LDD Official Sets topic, please carefully read the rules you can find in the first page. If you have any question, you need help or you simply prefer to check your post before adding it to the topic, contact me using private messages.
  2. Hi UrSuS, and welcome to EuroBricks. Unfortunately there is not a mirror, but I've a (almost complete) backup. Click here for your train! PS: I moved your request in the proper topic.
  3. If you need the flesh colour, maybe you could appreciate this (not exactly cheap) alternative: click! PS: I moved your request inside the proper topic.
  4. Griddy could be the kind of tool you are looking for. Take a look at the Section Index where you can find a list of software, tools and useful topics.
  5. In order to solve graphic drivers problems, maybe you need a deep clean before installing a new version of the drivers. Besides you have two video cards (the integrated Intel card and the dedicated AMD Radeon card), so... what drivers did you updated? Which video card runs LDD?
  6. Any other information about your system and hardware? Maybe there is a problem with your video card driver.

    Decals... again

    In LDD you can't add any brick or decal without "hacking" the software and then violating the EULA. As you can read in the Section Rules, this topic is not allowed here. Anyway, if you meant to render your work, you can add custom decals during this phase as some rendering software allow this (almost sure about Pow-Ray, maybe Bluerender too).
  8. @Murdoch17 Try this file taken from my backup. It should be the one made by Adho15. Very strange the entry vanished from his post.
  9. @Dansing If your model comply with LDD Official Sets topic rules, you could post it there. Note that the topic requires to post your model following its guidelines (you can read them in the first post of the topic), but if you need some help or explanation, I can open a private conversation.
  10. The important thing is that you understood the problem and why it happens. SylvainLS explained it very well: Your baseplates are not aligned because you placed them in different moments when the "ground level" was different. So, when you build a new model, you have to be careful that the ground level don't change or that the new plates will be connected to something at the right level (for example a brick temporarily placed across the old and the new baseplate). Anyway this time you have to deal with an existing model, and I suppose you want to avoid to build it again from the scratch. If now you have understood how thing works, you should be able to fix the problem using the procedure I described you above. Ok, it is a little more complex because there are so many baseplates, but the main concept is the same. PS: I've seen you used many baseplates in your project. Note that LDD can't manage an infinite number of bricks and have specific difficulties with baseplates. So be careful with your creation or LDD will have troubles to run it very soon. PPS: don't forget to edit the title of the topic!
  11. Hi Dump and welcome to Eurobricks. My first suggestion is to modify topic's title (editing the first post), in order to focus on the real problem. A generic request for help could not attract a user that could help you and will not be helpful for other users that could have the same problem in the future. About your problem, I suggest you a simple "strategy": - Select all the model except the two baseplates (you can use the classic selection rectangle) - Cut the model (CTRL+X), all will vanish but will be stored in memory - Drag the baseplates and place them as you prefer, without other elements it should be easy to avoid the "different levels" problem you describe. - Paste the model (CTRL+V) and place it on the baseplates To avoid problems, try this on a copy of your lxf file, maintaining the original one as backup.

    Kev's Decorated Pieces.

    @Kevin Flemming It is your choice where to host files (except in particular situations such as in the LDD Official Sets topic, for example, where some requisites are needed), I suggested brickshelf or bricksafe essentially for two reasons: they ensured a long time presence for the files in the forum (many dropbox, mediafire, etc... links has been lost in time, with users asking us if someone have saved a certain file and can provide it, while for example bricksehlf links are still there after fifty fifteen years!) and they are lego-related hostings, that means that they are thought to provide all the feature useful for a LEGO user (for example stable hotlinks!), cannot be used as "trash can" (brickshelf for example is moderated and not lego related files removed). And, obviously, both are completely free (sorry I used the wrong word, not affordable but reliable, I mean). Note that these are not modern services that gather data and spread SPAM, these are services created from LEGO fans for LEGO fans. I cannot guarantee, obviously, but I can say I never received a SPAM mail from these services. Anyway, as I told before, it is your choice. About creating a separate topic, it is common politic to use an exiting "general topic" if available and still active. It should be the poster that should search and post properly, otherwise he/she should contact moderators and decide with them the better strategy. (especially when we are dealing with a general interest topic like this one)

    Hi Kevin, thanks for your contribution. About hosting the lxf files, I suggest you to use a LEGO related hosting such as brickshelf or bricksafe, that are affordable reliable and allow to host both images and lxf files and share that with hotlink. Both are very used here. Maybe there is a proper topic for decorations, take a look at the Section Index.
  14. As there is a specific tool that allows to create building instructions from a lxf file, you should try it first instead than convert to LDRAW and then use LPub3D. You can find the topic related to Blueprint here.
  15. It is the B model. It seems that the main model has not been built. So, if there is some volunteer....
