  1. Hello guys. I am still new with all the Lego 3D software. I just installed V2 and import Lego 76057. I am planning to design a ramp to go up the bridge. When I finished importing, It showed up as pieces instead of a whole built up set. Is this normal? I tried importing as scene, it showed up as parts. Tried importing as palette, the sofware freezes up. So I guess in V2 importing Official Set means it come in pieces and we have to build it ourselves? Could someone provide me with insight? I am not going to use LDD because there is no existing set 76057 done by people. I guess my next option might be Mecabricks. I saw that 76057 exist there though I have not tried Mecabricks yet.
  2. wow! nice model with all the landscape design!

    Need Idea For Ramp (MOC Question)

    I already have both installed. And I take a look at Mecabricks earlier as well. I only know because someone mentioned it to me. I guess I will try first. Thanks for all of your help, imvanya!

    Need Idea For Ramp (MOC Question)

    Imvanya, does LDD has built-in sets already in it? I already installed it but it seems there is no database for existing sets in it. It would make everything easier of there is set 76057 template already in there. So I can just start building the ramp to connect to the bridge.

    Need Idea For Ramp (MOC Question)

    Oh for road marking! Yeah I need it. So I guess I will include plates. Did you use some sort of bricks software? Is it 2 from Bricklink (I never used it though). But I can download and learn it if it can make the parts calculation easier since I don't have enough parts to make mock ramp. Thank you for the explanation! It is very easy to understand.

    Need Idea For Ramp (MOC Question)

    Thank you imvanya! I have more questions though. For the first picture, what is the purpose of the strips (plate) in the middle? Why don't we use all bricks instead? What is the purpose of the second picture? I don't get it. Is it some sort of bracing that you mentioned? The transition from ramp to baseplate is indeed tricky. Maybe I need to use the combination of slopes with hinges.

    Need Idea For Ramp (MOC Question)

    Hi there. Thank you for the link. That is pretty useful. I just have no experience how to build a SNOT road. Well, I never done any MOC. And in the weblink that you shared, the builder, unfortunately, does not provide instruction. Hopefully someone here can provide some information how to build a SNOT road. But will it be far more costly than OPTION 2?

  9. Hi everyone. I hope this is the correct place for asking questions about building ramp. Hopefully someone can assist me. I have set 76057 and I want to connect the bridge to my straight roadplate 7280 using ramp. I think I have 3 options to do that though, which is: OPTION 1 Use 42942. I need to use two of this side by side and then extend it way down from the top. So, for one side of the bridge, I might need 4 or more of this parts. For both sides, I have to double it. OPTION 2 Use 30477px1. I only need to use this for one side of the bridge. I even have to elevate the bridge up if I use this. So in total I only need 2 to cover both sides of the bridge. OPTION 3 Using SNOT Technique and build it myself. OPTION 1 and OPTION 2 have a shortcoming. The ramp width do not match with the bridge (the width for vehicles to pass on the bridge is 10 studs, while total width of the bridge with the wall is 14 studs). OPTION 1 is the worst option I think. OPTION 2 is simple, but the cost of the ramp is expensive. OPTION 3 might be challenging but it will give the most aesthetically pleasing result. Unfortunately I never done any MOC building. So I do not know where and how to start to calculate the parts that I required. I want to compare the prices for OPTION 2 and OPTION 3 and get the cheaper option to spend. Any advice, guys? Or maybe another idea? Thanks!!
  10. The Lego Certified Store in Indonesia are recently selling 40261, 40262, 40263 for about Euro 7.6/set (USD 8.6/set). They are trying to get rid tons of them to make way for new small sets I think. I bought a couple from each set before it run out. If you are in Europe or US, you can always bricklink them.
  11. Loud and clear. I have decided to go with Lego parts only anyway. Thanks for the reminder.
  12. The statement above is the reason why my City will need standing army when it is large enough, lol. Anyway, my city will have a last resort defense. If the leader deemed that the city would be lost, a nuke cache buried under the city will be detonated to take out the invading army. Several nuke missiles will be launched to the invading army cities as well, muahaha. Mutual Assured Destruction! If I joined the great Brick War, I won't be signing the non WMD treaty for sure! Oh well, already get too excited even though I still have zero army, lol I actually prefer Lego Castle/Pirates or Army. Playing it is more fun with conflicts/battle rather than only looking at it. But, since Castle/Pirates has been retired (and the price is out of reach/not reasonable enough) and Army is non existent beside MOC (Just found this forum recently), so I opted to build City. If only I found this forum 1 year earlier! I have spent a reasonable amount to build up the City, I can not stop anymore. Lol. I think I will just slowly build up the army. Getting soldiers, gears and weapons should be the first priority on 2019. Thanks for the info. Will try to find the set that I played with when I were a kid. Not going to buy it just want to check which brand it was
  13. Thanks for your reply TheBeeze! I really appreciate it. Okay, so another alternative is to use minifigcat beside brickarms. I will keep it in mind. How about tiny tactical that I read somewhere in this forum? Okay, I just went to check tiny tactical, more pretty but seems I have to construct the add on parts myself. Oh alright, so for minifigs I have to get the monochrome lego figs. For vehicles, is everyone in this forum only use authentic LEGO parts or also procure from other competing (legal) brands such as COBI as well? I am still undecided whether to raise WW2 style army (Tiger Tank! MG42! STG44! City ruins!) or Modern army. Modern army have too many added accessories but the soldiers look cooler. By the end of the day, either option will put a big hole in my wallet. Thanks for the support, but it might still a long way to go. I have to enlarge my Lego city first before having an army to guard it. But at least I can draft monochrome minifigs first as a start. Another question, does anybody know which company made LEGO-like army set on the 80th or 90th? I still recall during my primary school, I asked my parents to buy me a modern tank LEGO set (during early 90th). At that time I thought it was from LEGO (now I realized that LEGO does not make army set) because the parts and the minifigs were scaled exactly LEGO. I don't have the set anymore but I still recall that the tank is quite big.
  14. Hi guys, I am not sure whether this is the correct thread to ask some questions. Please move it to appropriate thread if this is not the correct place to ask. I am planning to have some standing army in my Lego City in the future. I am just curious where I can get the gear, army minifigs and tanks/vehicles. I know that I can get weapons from Brickarms. But how about the gear and army minifigs? Where I can get those? For tanks and vehicles, are there any other brand beside Brickmania? A single medium tank or heavy tank from Brickmania costs more than a single Lego Modular Expert So if there are any other alternative brands for tank or vehicle that I can outsource will be better. Thanks!
  15. Thnaks for the info, guys. So it seems certain city has special sets related to the location of the store. Oh, I thought all Lego Stores (Not Certified) will have Lego passport and the stamps. So it does not seems so. Well, doesn't that defeat the purpose of getting the passport filled with stamps from Lego Stores all over the world? I already have the Lester minifigs through bricklink though. It is quite costly in term of shipping cost. That is why I am getting friends or relatives overseas to visit their nearby Lego Stores. Currently, I have my nephew in San Jose, California. I am wondering whether there is Legoland nearby or Lego stores that sell any special items there. Any advice of what to get? Oh, I asked him to visit target to get the Target exclusive but he could not find it. :(
