    Modding the Barracuda thread

    Don't really want to blow my own horn, but make sure to check out these cloth sails OKBrickworks has produced from my digital drafts. It's Silent Mary-style sails both in the colours and the size of the new BSB!

    Modding the Barracuda thread

    Finally managed to replace some colours on my bay: yellow is now dark red, the white accents have been replaced with tan, and the figurehead is pearl gold (probably being scrubbed daily by the pirates). Also I added some darker leafs, the torn sails are still my paper prototypes from these cloth ones, and I added a few animals, but that is still work in progress.
  3. I'd love to! Give me a few days to cook something up!

    Housekeeping in the Pirates forum

    First of all, thank you for the hard work and bringing this forum back to life. I thoroughly enjoy browsing these threads, and it's fantastic to see that pirate MOCs and discussion is still very much alive even after all the years. I could offer to comb through the Master Index, trying to locate orphaned PDFs and pictures in a first step, removing links that are no longer working in a second, finally adding content and updating the index in a third step. Provided you find that a good idea. In my experience, the indices are a great way to fathom the wealth of information collected here for newcomers and for the more experienced members to locate information in the depths of the threads.
  7. Hi there, being a relatively new member of the forum, having my love for the Pirates Theme rekindled by first the Ideas submission and subsequently by the released set of "Pirates of Barracuda Bay", I've realised that some of the older topics, especially articles from the fantastic Master Index, have lots of broken links or sometimes grown a bit grey in the beard. Resources like "A Guide to the Pirates Minifigures" seem to be broken multiple times, even after having re-uploads a few years ago. Is anyone willing to form a kind of Housekeeping Crew over here to update some of these links and topics, maybe in the light of a potential influx of new members following the releases of Barracuda Bay and the upcoming Creator ship? I would happily partake. What do the other members and also the moderators think about that? Cheers!

    [MOC] Skull ISland

    Sorry for being late in the game and bringing this back from Davy Jones' Locker, but I was so captivated by your MOC that I had to rebuild the skull in (in light bluish grey). As always with these rebuilds, some aspects might differ from your original and especially the back of the skull has not been cleaned up yet as it's hidden in the mountain in your version. I am seriously considering ordering the parts and combining the skull with my Barracuda Bay set.
  9. Feel free to use my measured files which are from the scanned sails of the new BSB. Alternatively, I can combine both for you guys, whatever floats your boat!

    LEGO Ideas. Caswell Point Turned down.

    Sure. In these cases, if I understand correctly, they found out that the creators were LEGO store employees, which is not allowed in the Ideas TOS.

    LEGO Ideas. Caswell Point Turned down.

    Well, they even cancelled projects (Mystery Shack, Tea Garden) after they reached 10.000 supporters, but before starting the review stage ... It's ... complicated.

    Modding the Barracuda thread

    I hope I didn't steal your thunder. I was just eager to do my tattered version and had to do the original sails as as precursor. I gathered since I've offered the files open and editable, everyone would be able to join in and modify them in creative ways.

    Modding the Barracuda thread

    Funny you should ask, I just published my PDF that's capable of printing both sides in this thread ... ... which links to this PDF (if anyone should read this in the future and there's nothing to find, check out my Bricksafe folder, in this case there should be a new version available with a new file name).

    Reproducing lego sails

    I've further enhanced my PDF so you guys can print those sails at home. Now, there are additional pages for double-sided printing of the sails:

    I painstakingly cut them out with some tiny scissors ... :-) I'm still thinking about paper/fabric choices, will test some kind of canvas paper next. Fabric sometimes feels too "naturalistic" to me, but I will definitely try it out too!
