  1. It was a 100 piece set, LPub4 worked just fine with it. I won't bother with LPub3D again. I don't use it often enough to try and figure out what might be wrong with it. I think the original problem @NathanR had still stands. Can't find a good program on Mac for larger models.
  2. I have this problem too. It doesn't seem like anybody out there knows how to fix this. I realie I'm asking for help in a topic where you're looking for help, but is LPUB4 easier to use in MAC OS? I'm tired of fighting with the LPUB3D interface. I don't see any reason why the LDView won't add the parts but the renderer is rendering them...
  3. Excellent and thorough write up, @Captain Nemo! I don't think we've ever had such a well–documented topic for any of our displays. As our group grows, so does our documentation! We've been through a lot of growth over the last 5–6 years and I'm so happy to build with this group every year. It seems to just get better and better. I really enjoy the stuff we've come up with, under Nemo's excellent guidance for the amazing creative ideas he has shared for us to participate in. Being able to collaborate but still express our individual creativity is a staple of our group. Over the years, we've figured out how to meld our creative individuality together to seem cohesive in a group display. Great work, everybody! I'm looking forward to many more years, working with all of you, winning or not. Although, I hope we get that fourth win in a row and beat VLUG's record.

    You can dance if you want to!

    You can leave your friends behind. 'Cuz your friends don't dance and if they don't dance then they're no friends of mine.

    MOC: Godzilla!

    @fallentomato and I have designed a LEGO Godzilla! You can also, if you like this model, support our Godzilla project on LEGO Ideas

    I will bring this issue to the staff and see what we want to do. Thank you for bringing it to our attention.
  10. I reset every member's skin. Perhaps I forgot to set it as default. If your theme option isn't set to default, you'll see whatever you have it set to. And also I forgot to set it as the default. Thanks for the heads up.
  11. Yes. You can post that in General LEGO Discussion forum.
  12. In other news, the sky is falling. I think it's a little bit alarmist to see two sets re–released and think that it's going to kill someone's investment. LEGO can't and won't re–release a large percentage of old sets. If you're an investor, you should have a diversified "portfolio." If you only bought the Taj Mahal and the Millenium Falcon, then that's a bad investment strategy. I do agree with @Doom2099 that he should be able to express his opinion without being investor–shamed. Everyone, including the investor–shamers, have the right to express their opinion, but why be so negative? If someone can make money off of their hobby, why not? We spend a lot of time and money on this and it's smart to find a way to take the market you fully understand and try to use it as an investment. If you're an expert in something and can make money off of it, why not?
