  1. It’s that time of year again: time for Oktoberfest! The annual BoBS Oktoberfest celebration features food and drink, contests of skill, games and amusements, traditional/historical costumes, food and drink (did we mention food and drink?), and more! This year the Eslandolan Oktoberfest celebration again takes place in the town of Punto Sur on Maldria in the New Haven Sea. The settlement has grown from a frontier outpost to a large town bustling with denizens from all the factions of the Brick Seas. As you can tell from Punto Sur’s original trading post (and the cast of characters pictured above), the town has a Classic Pirates aesthetic. As such, all entries should have a Classic Pirates vibe of some sort, and appear fitting with a Classic Pirates port town, either in traditional 1989 form or updated for 2022 style and techniques. Rules: Your entry should show an Oktoberfest activity in Punto Sur appropriate for the island setting. Show residents and/or visitors preparing for or taking part in the festivities. Entries must be licensable properties. Players may submit as many entries as they want, but may only win one prize per category. In addition to posting your entry in the forum (ideally with a [OKT] tag in the title), please post a link to your build in this thread and in the Punto Sur settlement thread. Entries must be posted by October 31. Categories: There are three categories this year: Factories, Commerce, and All Other property types (Artisan, Residence, Education, and Culture properties combined). Examples of factories include mills, breweries, bakeries, and other food processing facilities; examples of commerce properties include warehouses, merchant offices, banks, and lighthouses. Identify what category you’re entering when you post your entry. Entries will be judged on presentation, quality of build, story, fit with Punto Sur’s architectural style (Classic Pirate, both retro and modern), and fit with the Oktoberfest/festival theme. The only size requirement is a 16x16 minimum. Prizes: The top three entries in each category will win a free property license (large/medium/small for first/second/third place), to be activated by microbuild. Builders will also be reimbursed for licensing costs for any property licensed through the EGS, or Capt Wolf will purchase (at 2x the license cost) any property a builder does not wish to license. Winners announced here.
  2. Another year, another Oktoberfest! There is lots of hustle and bustle on the quayside of Punto Sur - not all of it going as planned. For some, things go well, with tasty sausage-in-a-bun... ... while for some the spilled beer comes not from their glas, but from a broken barrel! Behind the poor soul feeding the harbour fish with some Oktoberfest beer comes along Otto Grim on his way to his small barrel-maker factory. Quiet in disbelief of the scene he mutters to himself: "Shoddy foreigners work for sure! None of this would have happened with any of the fine barrels of mine. All that wasted beer, a shame!" In front of the Elementary School two other locals were oblivious to the commotion, obviously already thinking of another upcoming festivity. Happy Halloween! Some old sault - wearing his finest classical hat - watched them with mild irritation, not at all impressed by these newfangled customs: None of this mattered to the other workers on the pier, who just hoped that not all beer was out once they had finished their job: ================================================================ This thread, as well as its follow-ups (see below) are my entries for the 2022 Oktoberfest mini-challenge. First two more pictures of the scene in its entirety: This display splits up into three seperate build. They all share a common story, but not everything is shown here - so check them out: Otto Grim, Barrel Maker Punto Sur Elementary School Punto Sur Quayside They all feature design elements I associate with the classic Lego Pirates from the 1990s, namely the use of white, yellow and red on grey underground - as seen with the Imperial Trading Post: The mix of classic Lego Pirates with newer minifigs is also intentional, to go with the mini-challenge theme. The three follow-up threads are meant for the ease of licensing. There you can also see more details of the build(s). As always, comments and criticism are welcome!
  3. Traditionally seen, the last day is always the most busy day of Oktoberfest. People are gathering one last time before the month ends. During the recent stay of troops in Punto Sur, officers ordered construction of a MAESTRO office to oversee trade on the island of Maldria. The troops have been sent to Seawatch to remove the Lotii blockade over there. Oktoberfest was for MAESTRO always the best month as sales of their Apple Ciders and Wines go through the skies. So also this last day of Oktoberfest, the MAESTRO office opened it doors once again so everyone could enjoy a nice glass of Apple Cider. --- OC --- Will be licenced as small commerce 2 months ago I visited Cartagena in Colombia, which is a must-see for everyone here (just keep your own safety always in mind). Inspired by those colourfull houses and wooden balconies I was very eager to try to build it myself. The balcony on this MOC is an exact copy of one of the balconies I saw there. Together with the greenstuff and the streetlamp, I think I succesfully catched the atmosphere of the house I used as inspiration. Something I discoverd there (well, I never thought of it before), is that there is no sewer in those old Colonial cities (at least not in Cartagena). So hence the stone doorstep to make sure there won't get water inside the house after a very rainy day (rain just stays on the street in big pools). It was fun using the HP wands in the balcony and the bar 1L with clip Mechanical claws for the streetlight (put in a 2x2 inverted round dome slider) @Ayrlego: I might have taken a few looks on how you did your corners in your roofs Enjoy and thanks for C&C
  4. It was close to three in the afternoon - school was almost out! The youngsters were eager to get to the Oktoberfest, grabbing some food, having some fun. Yet Mrs. Litherthon, teacher of Punto Surs elementary school, had some things to do before letting the kids go today. "Alright, we are almost done for today. Jonathan, I can already see your parents waiting in front of the school. If everybody would now please hand in their assignment from last week. You remember: two pages on a local animal of your choice. I will collect the papers now." "Matthew, what is it? Oh I can not believe it! You forgot your homework again? Well, I guess this means some overtime for the two of us, you will write your two pages now. For everybody else: I wish you a good day, have fun and take care!" ================================================================ This thread builds on the story in my "main '22 Oktoberfest thread" and features my entry for the "all other property types" category for the 2022 Oktoberfest mini-challenge. The build is licensed as a small education property in Punto Sur. Some more pictures: As always, comments and criticism are welcome!
  5. Otto Grim was a barrel-maker in the third generation. He took great pride in his work, so when he had to witness some kerfuffle around a broken barrel, he came into his home and factory quite a bit agitated. "Son, listen. I just had to watch some shabby foreign barrel break and spill good beer. If only they had used some of my barrels!" "I have not yet told you everything you need to know to take over one day. You better do a good job, or somebody else might take over around here. But not today! You see, each barrel needs love - and love is given by the hammer! So now help your old man with this one..." ================================================================ This thread builds on the story in my "main '22 Oktoberfest thread" and features my entry for the "factory" category for the 2022 Oktoberfest mini-challenge. The build will be licensed as a small factory property in Punto Sur at a later date. Some more pictures: Only now while posting did I notice the front roof had slipped a bit between shots. The other thread has it "correct": As always, comments and criticism are welcome!
  6. This thread builds on the story in my "main '22 Oktoberfest thread" and features my entry for the "commerce" category for the 2022 Oktoberfest mini-challenge. The build will be licensed as a small commerce property in Punto Sur at a later date. There is no more story for this one, just additional pictures of the build on its own: As always, comments and criticism are welcome!

As such, all entries should have a Classic Pirates vibe of some sort, and appear fitting with a Classic Pirates port town, either in traditional 1989 form or updated for 2021 style and techniques. This year also poses a question: Where do all those partying minifigs live? We always see the visiting sailors who are ready for shore leave, but what about the locals -- the merchants and craftsmen and dock hands and fishermen? Do they live in rustic rural homes, colorful urban row houses, sprawling tropical villas, or something else? Rules: Your entry should show an Oktoberfest activity in Punto Sur, with an emphasis on the permanent residents of such a growing colonial outpost. Show residents taking part in the festivities while making a new home for themselves in the islands. Entries must be licensable properties. Players may submit as many entries as they want, but may only win one prize per category.

  8. A small factory (windmill) for the Eslandola town of Punto Sur: Punto Sur exhibits properties with a feel for the Classic Pirates era, so I chose the color scheme of white and red, with no tans or dark reds. Four years ago I built a micro windmill that was only 8 pieces (9 if you counted the base). Trying that minimalist approach again, this build uses 11 pieces, but could have used as few as 7 if I had used a one-piece base and hadn't added the technic pin at the hub of the sails (the pin just fills the hole and adds no structural element to the build). All C&C welcome!
  9. Thaddeus Calvo, the Eslandian adventurer somewhat well known in certain social circles, had extensively explored the island of Maldria for the previous six months. He encountered several similar but independent native tribes inhabiting different regions of the island, and discovered that they were familiar with trading with outsiders, as they traded with the Tyree'De, a non-Halosian people from an unknown land to the south. These discoveries led Eslandolan officials to believe that another settlement on the island of Maldria was needed. The tribes that would trade at the town of Interlagos on the north coast did not appear to travel extensively to the southern coast. A fertile river valley on the southwest portion of the island was a perfect location for another settlement: accessible overland from Interlagos via a pass in the hills that formed the spine of the island, land suitable for farming, rivers that would provide access to the island's interior, and a natural sheltered harbor for sea-going vessels. So Calvo set out from Interlagos again, this time with a crew of men to build a trading post on one of the southwestern rivers. Calvo and his men found a suitable spot at the mouth of one of the rivers. Sandy beach, but with rocky outcroppings suitable as a foundation for permanent structures. First they built a dock to receive ships large and small. Next they built a small structure that would serve as both a warehouse and office. Finally they built a watch tower to serve not only as a lookout, but as a landmark for traders on both land and sea to see from a distance. It didn't take long before scouts from one of the local native tribes came to check out what the Eslandians were doing. And so the trading post of Punto Sur was established. Maps: --------------------------- The main elements of this build were inspired by the classic Imperial Trading Post set: small rectangular building, tower, dock, and crane. I hope you like my take on that classic. The last two pics were taken at a different time than the first three, and so the light was different and for some reason they have a pink cast I couldn't edit out. All C&C welcome.
  10. At the height of Oktoberfest, things sometimes can get... a little out of hand. It is unclear if this was a "pirate raid" or "fest shenanigans," but in either case the damage was light, easily repaired, and all involved were drunk. Right after the fest tents cleared out for the night, a mob/band/party of sailors/fest goers passed the brewery on their way home. Deciding that in fact, they had not had enough to drink, they broke in and helped themselves. Morning found them still hard at work trying to drink the place dry. Yes, the normally tranquil factory, using the rich soil along the creek to grow their own hops, a picturesque place to work. Normally, alive with clockwork precision, particularly gearing up towards the high demand of fest season. The factory had been at max capacity for weeks, filling the racks with kegs for the Punto Sur festivities. But, tor the last 24 hours has been more like the fest tents on the tail end than the brewery on the front one. One report included drunken sailors trying to "cut out the middle men" and gorging themselves off half-ripe hops, straight off the vine... probably the best thing for them, they had probably had enough by that point anyway. Luckily, it appears that the most substantial costs of the whole event was the astonishing cut to the breweries inventory. The owners have claimed that even accounting for what was clearly spilled, the amount of beer consumed by the wayward sailors was, "absurd!" Though the demand is certainly high enough for their product, this temporary transfer of ownership has prompted the owner to consider selling this money maker to set up shop in a line of work with less on the job hazards.

However, being away from home with nothing but work occupying my day, I have plenty of time to mess around on Stud.io, so I decided to go all in for the contest. I did my best to capture the colors and style set by @Capt Wolf in his trading post build, while incorporating both classic and modern Pirates elements. I also threw in some Oktoberfest flair (at least what Google tells me its looks like, don't hang me if its wrong ), and a variety of characters seen in the BoBS universe. I spent waaaayyyy too much time on this, but it was a blast creating the scene, and a challenge to translate some techniques to digital building. Enjoy!
  12. Many are visiting Punto Sur this year, to drink, dance and have fun. But to keep the revelers entertained, Punto Sur inhabitants put on shows or street performances. Many shows are put on, for example this one, the tale of Captain White Feather. Crowds gather to watch the tale be told, as the makeshift ship rocks from this way to that, with cast members holding up masts and Captain White Feather steering the ship, in search of the greatest reward on all the Brick Seas...... Treasure. Although very much different, Punto Sur's Street performances all have one thing in common - they are all payed by the highest bidder to advertise their drink of choice.
