    HELP! ! !

    You should be able to change it in your profile settings. At least once a year as well I believe.
  3. Good game Bob! Sorry it got so quiet at times, but I definitely had fun for my first mystery game. The idea of Ezra having a accomplice never occurred to me for some reason so I unfortunately never went looking for one.

    Help with building technique in MOC

    The inverted 1x1 bracket is attached to the floor, connected to it is the brown jumper plate, connected to that is the uninverted 1x1 bracket, and finally connected to that is the black tile. It's kinda hard to see, but I'm pretty sure the half cylinder is centered in the two-wide area on a 1x2 jumper plate

    You could replace the dark grey 1x2 inverted bracket plate with a 1x1 version and then put a uninverted 1x1 bracket next to it connected to the brown jumper and the black tile.

    [WIP] [MOC] "Midiopolis" [Midiscale Modulars]

    My latest model is finished! Here's the Main Model Topic for anyone interested. [MOC] Midiscale Modular Office Building & Beauty Supply Store With Country Shop Also here's a quick pic of what I'm currently fiddling around with.
  8. Hello! Here is the latest addition to my "Midiopolis" Midiscale City. Enjoy! This Modular features an Old Office Building, with the first story having been renovated and occupied by a Chain Beauty Supply Store, leaving the remaining upper two stories intact in their original state. Next to the Old Office Building is a Country Boutique & Candle Shop.

    Unpopular Opinions about LEGO

    Nah. If TLG makes it then alot will probably be changed anyway unless your model was already up to official Lego standards in terms of structural integrity (aka kinda boring imo lol). Look at Pete Reid's mech for example.
  12. Has anyone tried or had the need to replace the HDRI images used by Stud.io's Eyesight renderer? I'm unsure what access people have to their Stud.io program files on Windows, but on Linux running Stud.io thru Wine (which works great btw aside from a few hiccups which can be fixed or dealt with fairly easily) with everything stored in the created virtual drive, under [in my case using PlayOnLinux (if you're just running plain Wine the path will probably be /home/user/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/Studio 2.0/PhotoRealisticRenderer/win/32/HDR/)] /home/user/.PlayOnLinux/wineprefix/Studio/drive_c/Program Files/Studio 2.0/PhotoRealisticRenderer/win/32/HDR/ I found two HDRIs which were TexturesCom_Pano029.hdr and TexturesCom_Pano040.hdr. I also found in the generated render script which HDRIs each light setting uses, with Piazza using TexturesCom_Pano029.hdr, and Asteroid and Dawn using TexturesCom_Pano040.hdr with Asteroid seemingly being a half intensity version of Dawn by default. (As for the light settings Building and Mechanic, the generated render script didn't seem to reference using any HDRIs at all, nor were there any changes in the renders when a different HDRI was in use.) So by replacing each of these two HDRIs and with a different HDRI and applying the old HDRI name to the new HDRI, you can successfully use a different HDRI. Here's a quick example of the results. Both images used the Piazza light setting, with the first render using the original HDRI TexturesCom_Pano029.hdr, and the second render using the new HDRI (in this case my favorite) urban_street_01_4k TexturesCom_Pano029.hdr urban_street_01_4k
