    [LDD MOCs] ComBots (Metal Fatigue)

    Back in 2000 a gaming company called TalonSoft have released a Real Time Strategy called "Metal Fatigue". Its most prominent feature was giant customizeable mechs called ComBots. Each of the three factions - the so-called CorpoNations - had a unique set of ComBot parts they could produce. RimTech was focused on balanced combat, having a variety of kinetic- and energy-based defenses and weapons, such as beam swords and force shields. Mil-Agro boasted heavy and brutal melee weaponry and was rigged towards dealing with energy-based attacks. Neuropa Limited made kinetic defense, stealth and energy-based weaponry their domain. Along with unique weapons and - somewhat - unique miscellaneous units, each CorpoNation sported unique visual design, especially for their ComBots: I used to be a huge fan of the game, so I couldn't pass on an opportunity to build ComBots for each of the faction. For reference, here is how the ComBots look like on the official CG art of the game:
  3. There are two things I wish Bluerender would allow me to do: Transparent backgrounds. Although, this admittedly may be the limit of the rendering engine in on itself, compared to POV-Ray. I could tell Bluerender if I want a clockwise or counter-clockwise rotation animation.

    [LDD Technique] "Clip Drag"

    I mean LDD has some pretty long tubes if I wanna make a longer railing. The setup I am using just doesn't take a lot of space and it's also important. As for clip pieces, it doesn't really matter as long as it has the clip and can be slid along the bar. Thanks everyone! I was kind of thinking of creating a series of short tips and tricks vids but I don't have a lot of them to be honest.
  5. I have decided to record a little trick I am using in LDD to finely position my MOCs. I hope you'll find it useful.
  6. Hello, where can I report a crash that I don't know what to do with?I guess this place is as good as any...

    The Doom Slayer (DOOM)

    @Ravelino Thanks for the detailed feedback. I could make the piece I used translucent to be honest, nothing stops me. I just decided I don't want to. Well unfortunately there's no chance that would ever happen. :P

    Thanks, but... this is not a mech? And it is an actual two-barreled shotgun?

    Mugbearer's MOC Instructions Shop

    Hello good people and welcome to my MOC Instructions Shop! First of all, a brief introduction: My name is Art, I am a LEGO enthusiast from Russia, known across the interwebs as TheMugbearer, TheDudeWithACup and CrashSanders. I do digital LEGO MOCs for several years now, a it has become a little bit more than a hobby since then. Several years ago I made a LEGO CUUSOO project about the FTL: Faster Than Light, an award-winning rogue-like videogame. While the project itself didn't get approved, it gained enough attention so that there was a demand for the instructions of the models that were proposed in the project. For this purpose I have recently joined forces with a skilled PDF maker to bring forth the long-awaited instructions booklets. Most of the MOCs that have been committed to PDF instructions are microscale spaceships, mostly because of the FTL project. So here's what I am offering at the moment: (disclaimer: the offered goods are PDF instructions, the preview images on Cubebrush serve only as a demonstration) FTL Bundle MEGA This is the "ultimate" bundle containing instructions for all of the micro-ships from "FTL: Faster Than Light".

    [Digital Render] Trace (Axiom Verge)

    Thank you! And I totally agree that Axiom Verge is an amazing game! Gotta love this alien biomechanical environment!

    [Digital Render] Trace (Axiom Verge)

    Trace (Axiom Verge) by Artemiy Karpinskiy, on Flickr Trace is the main protagonist of the videogame Axiom Verge, a pixel-styled metroidvania that was created by a single person as a "love letter" to Super Metroid. Trace was a scientist in a laser lab stationed in New Mexico. One day some sort of malfunction occurred, bringing down the lab along with science team, including Trace. Next thing he knew, he awakened in a strange, alien place, to the voice of a stranger who introduced herself as Elsenova. Armed with nothing but a biomechanical Axiom Disruptor gun and Elsenova's voice, Trace must find his way back home... Shoutout to Demitsorou for post-processing the original render. They've knocked it out of the park lol.

  15. Coalition Baserunner (Homeworld: Deserts of Kharak) by Artemiy Karpinskiy, on Flickr Baserunner is a fictional support and recon vehicle from RTS videogame "Homeworld: Deserts of Kharak". Baserunners are the reliable workhorse vehicles that were used by Kiithid Coalition during the events of the game. Their main purpose was to set up defensive perimeter with deployable turrets, as well as install sensor arrays and lay minefields. Many Kiith have used modified Baserunners for specific purposes, such as this Science Team Baserunner used by Rachel S'Jet during the Kapisi Expedition: Rachel S'Jet's Baserunner (Homeworld: Deserts of Kharak) by Artemiy Karpinskiy, on Flickr
