    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...

    [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
  14. In an undisclosed location, an eerie sight is to be seen. The Driftwood Heart is anchored without a sheet of duck on any yard. Seems the crews are busy ashore mending the sails. They must be preparing for a fair bit of ..... Well that's another story. Comments and Criticism welcomed

    [SR-FB] Driftwood Heart

    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

    MRCA Deadline January 8

    Gasp... You broke the tmcra! I know I'm guilty of Mis-spelling from time to time as my phone loves auto correcting words that don't need corrected.

    [OL - FB] Revelations

    Well this is an interesting one indeed. Firstly I like all the corn? In the background. The story was interesting as well. My only wish is that instead of the single picture back and forth you would have used the scene more. You have a lot of detail in it but you barely see any of it. I would have liked to seen you pose the figures repeatedly down the length of the build so it looked as if they were walking and talking. You miss the cow being led the man sleeping and the guy hiding in a barrel otherwise.
  20. The words had all but been long forgotten. The phase hadn't been uttered since 443 when the great plague swept the nation's. Now in 619 we are hear the phrase again being shouted through the streets the sickening phrase. "BRING OUT YOUR DEAD!" The body collector's cart rolls through a neighborhood in Mesabi Landing today. The earthquake was cold and emotionless harshness. It cared not for age or sex or class. As the building crumbled sending rubble crashing down it claimed many lives. Now as the Landings residents try to restore their town they will ever more be haunted by the phrase bring out your dead. OoC so the earthquake inspired a bit of Monty Python to ring through my head and this build resulted. Mesabi landing (if approved) is allowed to use it towards its stud total just let me know how / when to licence.

    [SR-KPA Reaction] For whom the Bell Tolls

    It's the only way I could replicate the ostrich plumes Some good reading
  22. This seems like a great idea! One of these days one of you gurus will have to learn me on some coding lol

    Stopping a train at an exact spot

    I think this will be the closest to "exact spot" programmed decel and stop and wait after sensor trigger. Just have to play with sensor location and decel amount/time

    [SR-FB] Driftwood Heart

    Thank you... All good notes! For some reason I find the stern easier to work on than the bow lol. As far as masts should I be adding another offset to the mast creating 4 with the 4th just being for flags? I really like the curved hull it even has interior but I need to attach the weather deck to the lower instead of the walls lol The last four ships I build used custom rigging either by flex tubes or the studded string I like the look of the prefab but I agree on the lengths lol I didn't go the string method this time because I was on a time crunch and setting all the angles is very time consuming.... Don't restart just set it aside and build another... I have three hulls right now like that lol

    HMS Brunswick

    This is a very elegant ship all the rigging really draws the eye too!
