      Have not tried that one yet! I just don't want the modular buildings to feel out of place ya know?

  4. My city has fallen into a state of disrepair over the last couple months...

    Of course as seen in my last status update, the wrecked house and boathouse have been taken out (although now they're just sitting in the road lol), but I have to do some cleanup. the 32 stud wide raised expansion on the end is supposed to be very lush and green private property, I'm thinking with a 2 track and cabin, but first I need to pitch the hunk of a table I have and build one that actually lines up with the top of the short cliff. Before I lost inspiration, I had just almost finished a huge re-landscaping project, I had the whole thing torn up while I added 2 plate tall tiled curbs and sidewalks. As a result I had to put in raised green plates across the whole layout, I've never done that before on a city, but thank goodness I had enough 6x8 green plates. I bought 60 or something years ago for a minifig scaled football field I was building, I got half of it done, never finished it and took it apart. I kick myself for not taking pics, it was pretty cool with all the lines and whatnot. 

    Anyways, I do have plans for it and I'm getting some extra time on my hands so it might start coming together. At least with the water front almost done it's mostly a matter of cleanup and I can start doing stuff in the main part and worry about the expansion later. 

    @Rylie Davis this is mostly to show ya a pic of my half urban half rural layout, lol. Station 1, which is my single bay urban firehouse, is at the bottom of the pic, you can just see the MARS EMS station on the bottom left, and to the middle right is the dept shops. That and the bridge ease the transition over to the rural backroad. I'd like to have a bit more rural to it, but that's why I'm adding the raised expansion.

      Looks like progress is being made! Glad we could help inspire you to work on it 🙂

  5. This is the San Brickardo Police Department (SBPD) and will cover the city of San Brickardo. So far only 2 divisions in the city have been planned, the 7th and 5th precincts. The 7th precinct building has already been built (and has been referenced as simple "modular police station" and I am part way thru digitally creating the small sketchy neighborhood it serves. I will then move onto digitally designing and creating the 5th division station and the larger downtown area it protects. As you can see from the badge, this department is based on the LAPD and SFPD, and the city it serves
  6. Nah. If it looks that bad, take the push bumper off them all IMO
  7. Lol forgot bout the mirrors. yeah those I'll definitely change. I might shorten the bumper too, but It would look weird next to ones with a push bumper. I'll experiment.
  8. Theoretically the change to the mirrors would be pretty easy, even if you don't raise it up.
  9. The mirrors! And shorten the bumper at least a plate, especially since you don't have any kind of a push bar.
  10. Yeah it would've been harder to decal and too long...
  11. I agree, I have since changed it back lol
  12. I can't make the changes to the side if i want to keep having the ability to fit a minifigure inside and IMO the flat back looks better than the one Josh has on his new one.
  13. Changes? What changes did he make?
  14. Skip the bumper stickers IMO. Just needs to be updated with the changes the other Josh made!
  15. So, I was experimenting with making decals for @ Josh's Crown vic and I made a set that i think look amazing. Rendering rn and will be in the gallery soon. Also made some for @ Sven Explorer. Also looks amazing!

      All of those things will definitely be added! Studio does not have the crosswalks and I don't like building signs/traffic lights in studio, its too finicky for that.

      This is a minor detail, but when u build it IRL, the road stripes shouldn’t run through the intersection. Looks great!

      Oh good point. Thanks!

  17. Both tan and white look good. White is cheaper which is making me lean towards it a bit more.

    Compared to the rest of downtown.....I think I may need to knock out 1 or 2 floors 😂 A building this size would fit great in the North District though.

      Here is the short version. It fits the skyline much better and is what I will do. I am also going to work with tan a little more because building it short reduces the cost.

      Yep, if your OK spending the money I’d say it’s worth it to do tan and 4 floors

    4. Josh

      I was playing around with it and decided to go with the tan! Cost was really the only thing keeping me from doing it, but I realized I could just order bulk and use my current collection to keep the price down. It definitely looks better in the layout too. Tan is the winner!

  18. Any ideas on what color to use for these top floors? I'm thinking white will look the best but I am not sure. Oh, and full interior or just the facade? image.thumb.png.fac7ac7f0b596e4e7945865c2a724d3b.png

      Full interior is always best, but with the cost in mind I would skip it. Tan outdoor look best IMO.

      I agree with what Joshua said lol

    3. Josh

       Josh

      Yeah, interior is pricey lol. IRL I would probably just put a piece of black construction paper behind the windows, keep it looking nice without the full interior. Thanks for the color suggestions. I'll see how it looks!

  19. Ok so i've been showing you guys bits and pieces of san brickardo, here is a total recap of what I've got so far:

    Note: this photo is already our of date lol 

  20. Here is the first floor of the new dunkin/apartments. Birch tree, bench, and lamp post outside, and a full featured interior for dunkin.

      Looks good! Alas, the interior could use some filth/decals. 

    2. Josh

       Josh

      Decals and smaller details will be done IRL! Not to worry!

  21. This ones for you @Joshua B 🤣😆 Who here thinks ford is superior to Chevrolet?
  22. Thanks! Honestly any colors look good on Svens Explorer.
  23. Love the colors on this. Looks awesome!
