    Quarantine for the Originals

    I do. My 30+ years old stuff stays home on the display shelf. The newer stuff goes to LUG events, then gets shredded, and built into something else for other events. It's an endless cycle.

    Multiple MOC at the same time

    Sometimes, I do when we have events geared towards different audiences. It is no different than juggling several projects at work.

    Support structure for cylinder

    I've totally forgotten about Dune. That was so long ago. Yup, the bricks must flow. Can be used for both. The business goal is to increase profits through lower costs when revenue isn't increasing Y/Y. Notice there is no geebling. Geebling cost money.

  5. Neat. Something to do with the ultrasonic sensor I just received in the mail from China. There are also various LEGO to servo adapters for 3D printing on Thingiverse.com.

    Emerald Night MOD

    Cool story. Have you tried EN with the XL motor before? We had to take drivers off one side of a steam engine too because it was hitting the train station platform. It's interesting what gets left out in the layout collaboration planning stage.

    But do I NEED a bathroom and stairs...?

    It's really up to you. Classic Town and CITY don't come with washrooms. Maybe boys aren't all that interested in cleaning toilets. Larger Friends sets come with bathroom. Even their camper van has a bathroom/shower. Elevator could be another option if space is too tight for stairs.
  9. A Russian roulette style slot machine. Match three colours to win. Play by yourself or with friends. LEGO Mindstorm EV3 Slot Machine by dr_spock_888, on Flickr I made this for the local LEGO Discovery Centre's Adult Night's casino theme night. Originally, it was running on the NXT with limited function. The NXT didn't have the modulus function in the math block. I needed it to calculate where the colors are. I wasn't looking forward to writing my own modulo function then I got lucky and won an EV3 at a silent charity auction. Lo and behold, EV3 math block has a modulo function. I am saved! We also planned to build a working roulette table for the event but that fell through. So I added a "roulette" feature to my MOC. VIDEO: V

    New Mindstorms Forum

    You can search by tags. There is an option for that in the search engine. Tags are only good if the person creating a thread enters them. It may be best to visit both forums than to rely on tags. The same way manually validating new users works better than some Captcha or software to keep out new spammer users.

    Hello, World! from temporary UK

    Welcome to Eurobricks, Tobias. I think you joined at a good time. We opened a new Mindstorm forum here and working hard to consolidate all the old Mindstorm topics there.

    Support structure for cylinder

    Those Technic gear racks and panels can make a pretty solid cylindrical structure. Large Unmanned Guided (LUG) Bulk Carrier by dr_spock_888, on Flickr
