Yes - yet another logo!

About 6 months ago I announced that a completely new Rebrickable is on it's way. I've been hard at work making that happen, and we are getting closer.

I just wanted to give a brief update on how it's coming along. I have built most of the main features, with a few big(ish) ones remaining and a billion little things still to tidy up. The awesome Senior Admin team have been helping to test the new site over the last few months and provide input as to how things should work.

Timeframe

My original hope was to get it done by Christmas, but as usual I underestimated the effort required, and overestimated my available time :). I'm rather shocked at how much functionality I've crammed into the site over the years.

Since Christmas is the busiest time of the year for Rebrickable, I'm not going to try and rush release it. My current plans are to release a public beta testing period in January for about a month and then fully release v3 in February once the traffic has settled down a bit.

Features

I'm still not ready to talk about specific features yet as things are constantly changing. I'll just leave you with a few more screenshots to keep you guessing!

    Feature request:
    Option to sort "Other Sets to Consider" by relative amount of missing pieces.
    (=Amount of missing pieces in the set/total amount of pieces in the set)

    Coming out of my dark age this function helped me to get a well rounded parts inventory.
    But suggestions consisting only of Flagships and the like aren't helpful to my wallet :-)

    FEATURE REQUESTS!
    This is a BEAUTIFUL SITE.
    1. Add All Duplo Products
    2. Show user what pieces they're missing, to get to 100% of required pieces for a MOC. Also, show minimal sets or pieces they could buy.
    3. Group my "sets owned" into the "line" (e.g. Star Wars) They're a part of

      1. Thea is working on it
      2. Hit the 'Build this MOC/Set'-button
      3. Looks like something went wrong?

      1. Working on it. Sorting out the Duplo minifigs already in the database first, because they have the most errors.
      2. The Build Function in v2 works for MOCs the same as for regular sets.
      3. You can use multiple set lists to accomplish this already in v2.

    is this version including instruction links for set instructions pointing to LEGO.com and peeron? or is it still only MOC that get links?
    • 3 months, 3 weeks ago Nathan (61637) Site Admin Pro
      Nope, other sites such as Brickset and Brick Instructions already do a great job at collecting and maintaining those links.

        yes but it would be good to have everything in one place.

    While I'm working on Duplo parts standardization, there are going to be some errors showing until everything is done. I'll repost here when I'm finished. Please hold any change requests on Duplo parts until then.

    One known error is the links in the BrickLink mappings of the Duplo Minifigs.

    BrickLink classifies these with an M prefix for Minifig and Rebrickable uses a P prefix for Part. There are concerns that fixing this in the v2 code might cause more problems than it would solve.

    This will be solved in v3. Your patience is greatly appreciated. :)

    Awesome! Love the badges functionality and part mold usage.

    The upgrades look intriguing -- we're in for a treat in early 2017!
