    Custom LDD bricks and fixes

    I just logged on here to note the same exact problem when trying to update the sets using the Stuntz ramp. Per my Brickset records I've got 78 files of official sets containing 69729. Absolutely no way in hell am I going to go back and change 78 broken files because of an arbitrary change to one (1) part! I tried to revert back to the 2021 version that's still hanging around on the development branch of the Github and that broke the part even further, so I've gone back to the current February 2022 version and I'm just not going to open any files that contain it, or create new ones, until this gets sorted out.

    I don't have the new linear actuator, dual-colored wheel, old technic competition arrow, or 2x2 tile without ridges either. The only error I can find with the parts that are here is that the City Stuntz ramp doesn't have proper antistud connectivity on the bottom of the 1x6 plate that sticks out the back, everything else seems to be working fine.

    Finished the 42130. I am a very experienced LDD user, I've built a lot of massive Technic sets, and this took me 6 hours. (One of them was just fiddling with the chain and the last two pieces of bodywork.) LXF File (must have the very newest parts from Stephan's pre release Github directory!) Picture

    Got them, thank you! I'm about 75% of the way done with the bike, I'll try and upload the finished model here later today. The windscreen connects to 2 out of the 4 pins (1 on either side) but the other 2 pins will fit without any trouble, they just don't snap into place. It gets the job done.

    Thanks for the tip on the decorations. However, I just re-downloaded the whole pre-release branch and I'm not finding the wheels or windscreen.

    It worked, thank you! Any chance of the huge new wheels, tires, and front windshield of the 42130 coming soon?

    If you're looking for things to fix, I downloaded the pre-release parts a few days ago to try building the new Technic motorcycle 42130 (which, as it turns out, practically requires an engineering degree to assemble virtually) and found that 69636 and 67498 don't fit together like they're supposed to. I just attempted to place some other liftarms into the top of 69636 and they'll fit, but the shock absorber does not.
  8. Okay, here you go: https://bricksafe.com/files/PicnicBasketSam/10273 Haunted House.lxf The first post in this thread explains how to download the custom parts.
  9. I have built 10273 in LDD using the custom parts available elsewhere in this forum. I can post it here but if you don't have those installed you'll get an error message saying roughly 80 bricks could not be loaded

    RIP LDD...

    It's now been four years since any kind of official update and the version they've had up for download on LEGO.com for a while not only has a broken, incomplete parts library relative to prior versions, but has an installer that hasn't worked since December 2020 because it checks for Adobe Flash Player before installing anything. (I have no idea why it ever did this.) I am not surprised to see it finally be put out of its misery; if the good people in the "Custom LDD Bricks and Fixes" thread hadn't figured out how to keep the program up to date themselves, I think I would have been forced over to stud.io a couple of years ago.

    Oh I didn't realize that, I haven't just grabbed a color pre-update before (I'm building some 2022 sets that call for it). Thanks.

    Your updated MaterialSelector.xml doesn't actually include the new color, I had to add it myself to be able to access it in LDD.

    A fair number of sets have been slightly redesigned midway through production (sometimes mailing people a service pack like with WALL-E, sometimes not) or sent out replacements for faulty parts (i.e. Poe's X-wing and the misprinted Flux Capacitor in the Back to the Future set) but they've only done two actual recalls where people were supposed to send anything back to the company, and they're listed on the Customer Service page: a Duplo-adjacent plastic monster truck that barely resembles a LEGO product, and the initial run of the Power Functions speed control train remote.

    These all look great, but I am especially excited to use these Mandalorian helmets! That piece and the paint tool have never gotten along at all.
