  1. I have this game on the Wii U, and it's a gem of a game. Cheap HD remaster or not, I can warmly recommend it. Also, it's coming out on the PC as well: https://mynintendonews.com/2016/11/22/lego-city-undercover-port-coming-to-nintendo-switch-xbox-one-ps4-and-pc/ If the picture in the tweet is anything to go by, it looks like it's getting an update with newer sets as well.
  2. 2015 LEGO Trains?

    If there's going to be another creator expert train-set, I would love to se it represent something iconic - something that most train enthusiasts would know about. Such a product would ultimately have a far wider reach compared to a niche product representing, say, a swedish Rm3, as much I would love to get one. Possible iconic trains/locomotives could be the Santa Fe, a swiss crocodile engine, or (just to break up the "pattern" ) possibly even a Shinkansen bullet-train (you know, the first one). But seriosly, a hobby train V2 would also be very welcome.
  3. MOC: Nissan IDx

    I agree wholly that it is difficult to recreate a car correctly when building in minifig-scale, and that it is more about capturing the essence of the car you're aiming for. If I had known of the Nissan IDx before, I would definetly identify your MOC as it, if not heavily based on it, at least. I think it looks great, and the only thing I might've changed, would be to use white slopes w/ cutouts (92946), to reduce the depth of the B-pillars, to closer approach the IDx' design. Right now it looks closer to the original GT-R, and that is not a bad thing.
  4. Octan Gas Station

    What a fantastic looking gas-station! I'll agree with anyone above who would like to have it a part of their modular city - it'll fit right in. To be honest, I don't I've ever seen such a nice gas-station in real life either! Most are just blunt concrete boxes sorrounded by asphalt, with no attention to detail whatsoever. So you've excelled real life right there!
  5. Is this layout in short circuit ?

    No short circuits there; just a bug in the program that displays the polarity incorrectly.
  6. [MOC] Modular Apple Reseller With Apartment

    The details, the colors, the solutions, the overall design - it's simply amazing. I particularily like how well-integrated the hyper-modern Apple-store looks with the rest of the building, and not sticking out like a sore thumb. It's something I'm really struggling with on with my designs, so I'm admiring how you did it. Yeah, fanstastic work.
  7. [Moc] Police Headquarters

    I'll repeat what everyone above has said: That is an amazing building, with lots and lots of details, both in and out. I'll probably be studying it for hours, trying to pick out the stuff that I like on it. Thank you for sharing!
  8. [MOC] Town house

    Doesn't exactly make it any worse, in my opinion. Sometimes you've just got to work with what you've got, and you've done a fantastic job. That said, I love the way the flowerboxes are made, that Kristel identified as 4 x 3 crates - I would not have thought of it, and it's brilliant. Mind if I steal borrow the idea?
  9. Custom PF rail trucks, how to question...

    I'm assuming you're using the standard train baseplate and E- or M-motors: The motors attach directly to the base with pins (vertically), and like Spitfire2865 said, the drive axle works as the pivot. It'll be problematic once the train starts to get heavy, though, as the rotational force of the motor can twist the bogie of the rails if there isn't enough weight keeping the car on the rails in the first place. That said, the basic PF-train motor should do the job just fine, without looking too much out of place. The Emerald Night can be motorized also, altough it is recommended that you modify it to cope with the power and to reduce some of the friction problems it has. Edit: This was posted right after the reply above! So I guess you can ignore that last bit.
  10. Hong Kong General Post Office (1911-1976)

    Fantastic recreation, full of life! I particularily like the detailing on the roof, really gives it character. Thank you for sharing!
  11. MOCs: A trio of modular buildings

    Thank you! Sadly, PKH13 will be difficult as a deadline - I'm already working hard on my version of Jamie's town hall (which he built back in 2007, I think). I've spent way to much time just reverse-engineering it to give it up, and want to have that completed first, and in time for Trondheim. After that, I think Bianca's Bikes will be the second one to be built - I've already got a fair amount of pieces for it, so it should be easy enough to begin with, but for now I'm prioritizing the town hall.
  12. MOC - The Diamon Shop (a narrow modular)

    Brilliantly built, and clever use of what little space there is. I am yet to try building one, but I've tried CAD'ing a few, and I just couldn't get it right. You, sir, have.
  13. MOCs: A trio of modular buildings

    Sorry, but I'm not sharing the files. I've done so once, only to see it reused without permission. But! The technique I've used is demonstrated here by Jamie. There is a few more tricks there as well, using the same technique, so it's really inspirational. And with a few well selected pieces, you can get other, really nice results: No interior on this one either, sorry, but it does demonstrate how well 3x12 wings work with the angled walls, and I've tested it IRB as well, so this one is very much buildable.
  14. MOCs: A trio of modular buildings

    ...while it really isnt! Sure, go ahead. I'd kept it secret if I didn't want others to try their hand at building diagonal walls. Besides, I'm not the first one to do so, AlienCat's "Harry Hardware Store" is my inspiration for Mocca House!
  15. MOCs: A trio of modular buildings

    Thanks for the kind words! They are much appreciated! I'm guessing SNIR stands for Studs Not In Row? Anyway, the technique is simple enough: the walls are simply hinged, inspired by a technique Jamie Berard demonstrated on the Creator-site a few years ago. But, they are not double hinged, meaning they are not locked in that angle, and can move about. This is planned fixed with strategically placed interior and street furniture. The walls further up the building attach to the studs of the ground-floor walls, taking care of that problem. At least, that's the theory. That's the plan, yes. Eventually. Cream Flats is likely to be the first one built, since it's pretty much based on using pieces I already have in my collection.
