  1. 2nd side department is underway

  2. LDD is officially the most aggravating program in the history of computers. What I thought was a solid design ended up not being correct upon building due to a visual glitch in LDD.

  3. When you find pics of a really good design you had and try to replicate it but somehow it isn't working out

  4. The stories... calls I've never been on give me chills.

  5. Starting a side department today

  6. College: putting people broke for a piece of paper since ever 


    (I'm not in college atm but you don't have to be to get it)

  7. NEED HELP: Attempting to do a ladder rack. Have the rack complete, but can't figure out a way to get a recessed light in behind it. Will send pictures to anyone interested in lending a hand.

      It's a top-mount. All my engines have full-height compartments on each side.

      This is where I'm at right now

      My thought is this, you could A) move the bent part forward 1 stud, and mirror the same one you did on the otherside, or a flat 1x1 transparent "light" brick placed directly on the rig itself..

  8. Making a bunch of LDD rigs just because... although they won't serve Brick Village I might order some because I like the looks of 'em so much

  9. *builds with Lego for entire life* LDD: yeah so we decided to change how Lego works without telling anyone, good luck

  10. Anyone remember a guy on YouTube that owned a Dept. called North Gelong/Geelong? (can't remember how many E's). He deleted his channel and I haven't seen him post anywhere since. Anyone know if he's posting anywhere? 

  11. Will be starting a side department. Don't have a name but it's going to be a rural department covering a fairly large area. 

  12. When you find out LDD has a screenshot feature 

  13. I know it was a VERY long time ago, but what ultimately led to MedLink's downfall? They ended right around when I started building

      Long story short: Kiddie with a craving for power over a Lego oriented group.

      Slightly longer version: James K. went out of state for a summer internship, left MedLink in the capable hands of the other mods and admins.
      Enter Keller Brown, he got into an argument with the other mods, then decided he should be the one and only boss of MedLink did a hostile takeover, and shut the other mods out of the group.
      MedLink collapsed, many builders were pissed off as they were ordering parts for rigs (and yellow bricks were more expensive back then) to join MedLink.

      So Dakota got to Keller, and EBAN got control over MedLink, threw Keller in the deepest dungeon he could find, MedLink was returned to James when he got back, and it took a few years, but James reactivated MedLink, and still is active today, safe to say, James doesn't allow anyone to join anymore.

      ...That's quite a story 

  14. My thoughts on an Engine to Ladder ratio: 

    4 to 1 for the first 3 aerials, then 2 to 1 for every aerial thereafter.

  15. Stud.io 2 decided it doesn't understand how Lego works

  16. Rescue Co. 3 has been permanently taken out of service. All MVAs and other rescue assignments will be handled by the engines, which are all rescue engines except Engine 3.

  17. Don't you just love it when Stud.io 2 has zero idea what it's doing

  18. I don't know what drug I took to make me think designing an urban engine would be a good idea, BUT I WANT SOME MORE

  19. Any 1st Attack builds out there besides James K.'s?

  20. It is officially immensely difficult to build a station following a real building when 6-wide scale and true minifig scale are 2 different things 

  21. I think Sutphen gave up on the SLR108 

  22. Working on a brush truck...

  23. Am I the only person that doesn't run (or plan to run) a dedicated rescue for my Dept.? 


    1. Josh


      Sort of. for the first few years of SBFD, my department rigs never included a rescue, it wasn't until a few months ago that I built my R13, which I am going to rebuild.

  24. Why are all of my render backgrounds half black and half gray?

    1. Robson


      The gray/white portion is the floor. The black part is the background. You need to change the background color or render the model in a different angle to only show the floor behind it.

      @Robson but it only appears if you zoom in on the render. Why is that?

    3. Robson


      Ok, that I don't know, I had similar issues in the past until I made both background and floor with the same color, but it never showed up b/c of the zoom. Sorry, no idea... ☹️
