    Settlement: The Sereen Cay

    I think it's an American thing... Most "yanks" can't handle real beer
  3. . @Bregir @Capt Wolf @Ayrlego I know there are others in court but you've all been in this conversation. My frustrations are not with you or the "jobs" you do. My frustration is that overnight I'm being expected to absorb a 350db a turn bill. With no feasible way to accomplish this in a months time (the three builds I can licence prevent this) we (SR) think we have figured out a solution but my frustration is I've had 74 db a month for the better part of a year in land based income personaly and prior to this removal of income the settlement I manage took care of its own expense. Your getting rid of money out of thin air but expect players to come up with it from the same air. I don't have issues with the ruling more so the time frame to implement.
  4. Oh even better. .... Well I can honestly say I don't know how much longer I will play.... This isn't fun.... Coming up with a way to make a fake megablocks settlement produce 350 fake money overnight is annoying to say the least. I joined this game to "Play with Legos" and to be in a community that enjoyed the age of sail as I do. I'm letting my frustrations show but as of this moment I honestly don't know how long I'll be around
  5. Charlatan Bay brings in 113DB a turn but has 350DB worth of expenses every turn .... It only had just shy of 400 in its account.... How long will it be OK? Just saying. We are scrambling on the faction end to remedy this...

    Your crops look great hopefully your yields will show a bountiful harvest.

    [OL-FB] Another fort in Crecopia

    Well that's certainly a new one... I like the beveled windows and overall shape.
  8. I have two questions. First with regard to Charlatan Bay. Can this be any property as long as its a royal in size? Second with regard to sister shipping. Why double? Are we trying to do away with Sisterships? It seems to me one would just build another ship. I guess I could understand an additional fee but double seems a little out there.

    Track Ballast - Ideas needed

    If your referring to the old ramp style stations you can raise them by plates under the plate connections then tiles under the non plate. Interesting enough the sloped 8w roof tiles are 3 plates tall and work great under the old station plates to continue the ramp.

    Frayed wiring on 9V Track Connectors

    Search your local hardware store for "liquid electrical tape". Paint them up once dry they are isolated again.

    Ideas for freight locomotive to complement 4559

    One of my LUG members actually has a beautiful rendition of this train... Feel free to poke around our site for more pictures of it! https://fortlug.org/?topic=the-new-nickel-plate-express

  13. So much green frustration! It really has a great effect I will use your cat tail method sometime. The water didn't render very well but other that that great build

    Again great tips! Thank you. I usually add cannons to all decks even if not shown. Admittedly I did not add them to the lowest on this as you could not see them as none of the hatches are open so to save brick count I left them out. Also I rarely include any cabin interior other than the floor. I find the scale is really too far or supports are in the way. Although I've built cabin scenes to look like the ships cabin where I can massage the scale a little. But yes 'simple string rigging" that would take 5 min in real brick takes an hour or more in LDD frustrating. Especially since I usually rig last and by that time I have enough angles that my graphics driver hates me and the align tool simply crashes LDD so I do it all by myself trial and error. Well for now we will leave "the story" a mystery just like her location. Depending on the MCRA outcome you may get some back story to her. Thanks for your comments!

    [COR - Raising troops] Vernon's Company

    I had a history teacher back in school that I will never forget... We are discussing the revolutionary war (US vs Britain) specifically the fighting styles and how the US began using "gorilla tactics" as the Red coats out numbered US. He drew a regiment formation on the board then explained it was common practice for both sides to parade out in front of each other and line up. Just like they are going to play a game of red rover. Then both sides ready, aim. He interjected you were taught not to Actually aim at the person across the field from you as that would be murder but just point in the location of the bodies. He then said a general or comander would then give the order to fire and red rover red rover send your bullets on over. Since the reload time was quite long your front line would take a knee while the back shot. The best part was when the guy in front of you got shot you simply stepped forward for your turn to be shot. To this day this odd ball teachers words stay with me lol
