  3. A short description of the bug in question: When I try to use the build search, I get an error 504 (Gateway time-out) error. How the bug can be reproduced by us (if possible): I only have three sets and I am using the following search criteria: Part color sensitivity: Ignore. Ignore printed and patterned part differences: Checked. Ignore mold variations in parts: Checked. Consider alternate parts: Unchecked. Exclude Minifig and Minifig Accessory parts: Checked. Exclude Non-Buildable LEGO parts: Checked. Filter on Theme: Technic (538). Number of parts: 50 to no limit. Year of Release: From 1990 to 2019. Include official sets: Unchecked. Include Custom Sets: Checked. Include Premium MOCs: Checked. Include Sets I own: Unchecked. Sort by: Highest % Match. What browser (Firefox, Chrome, etc.) you were using when the bug occurred, and which version.: I tested both on Chrome on Windows 10 and Android. Thanks!

    Updating LDraw Images

    As long as the file is stored within the virtual Empire of Rebrickable, there is no reason to name it anything else than the Rebrickable part number. Plus ".dat", of course. It depends on how many "humans" will have access to your LDraw files. Any rendering software will not care if you even write a header or not. Basically, the renderer just cares for the five type 1 lines (for one torso, two arms, and two hands.) The original work of my shortcut is actually made by Leonardo Zide, and who knows where he's copied it from, or if he used some Minifig Generator. So you are free to put your name there - or omit that line if it's just going to be used by rendering software. So, for 973pr1244c01, where LDraw has one number for the torso, BrickLink another, and Rebrickable yet a third one, you are free to use any file name you like. But I believe it is most convenient to stick with the Rebrickable number. And the lines of the header are all optional, the only purpose for them is to make it easier for those who have access to the actual LDraw files you create/generate. 0 Torso Mechanic Blue Overalls, Tools in Pocket Print / Medium Blue Arms / Yellow Hands 0 Name: 973pr1244c01.dat 0 // torso 1 16 0 -72 0 1 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 1 973p8z.dat 0 // or use color code 73 directly 0 // arms 1 73 -15.552 -63 0 0.9855 -0.1699 0 0.1699 0.9855 0 0 0 1 3818.dat 1 73 15.552 -63 0 0.9855 0.1699 0 -0.1699 0.9855 0 0 0 1 3819.dat 0 // hands 1 14 -23.552 -46 -10 0.942 0.335 0.0072 -0.2404 0.6906 -0.6821 -0.2336 0.6409 0.7312 3820.dat 1 14 23.552 -46 -10 0.942 -0.335 0.0072 0.2404 0.6906 -0.6821 0.2336 0.6409 0.7312 3820.dat 0

    Updating LDraw Images

    Well, I have python on all my systems, and selecting 450 ldraw definitions that start with 973p and using the filename and description to generate a shortcut like the one you posted can be done in an hour or so. The main problem is getting the color of hands and arms, but if I can relate the ldraw torso to the Rebnrickable torso+arms+hands definition, I might be able to grab those colors from the RB part name, and translate them back into LDraw color codes. Let me think about that some more... If I start generating more unofficial ldraw shortscut, what numbering should I use? Original torso number followed by "c01"? Can I put my name in there as author?

    Updating LDraw Images

    Like I said, I have to get the making of those shortcuts automized somehow, and right now I have no programming enviroment installed in any of my computers, so it might take a while for me to even get started on this huge project. But at least it's in my pipline. /SimLego
  7. I've updated the doco, thanks. No point switching if you are fine using PayPal. The main functional differences on Rebrickable is that you can upgrade/downgrade Plans if you use Stripe (with PayPal you have to cancel and then re-subscribe to the new plan). Yes, the level 20/25/30 certainly do apply to you. If you hit 25 and are still on Pro, I will manually cancel your subscription and make it a permanent upgrade.

    Finding parts

    I have tried to search for this but can't seem to find the answer I am chasing. I am wanting to enter all my sets, and a location etc, and then use the search function to find a part. So I might be looking for a 3960 (Dish 4x4 Inverted) I have entered my sets into a list called "Box 2". Now in this box I might have 20 ziplock bags full of lego sorted into sets. I can then search for the part and find it, and go to my My Parts and see I have one in lime green and it's in Box 2, but I don't know which set (bag) to go find it from. Am I missing something here or is there a better way to manage this?
  9. Pretty low priority, but it would be nice if a couple of improvements could be made to this. The most useful, I think, would be to include all the parts that are displayed using a 'similar image'. Right now, they aren't in this list, despite having no images. Another useful addition would be the ability to filter out Stickers and parts in the Non-LEGO category. Somewhat related, I think it would be cool to be able to choose which images are displayed when viewing an inventory - Photo, LDraw, LEGO or 'Best' (which would be the current implementation). Obviously default to best. That way, it would be really easy to see which parts are missing photos when viewing a set inventory. Could be applied to any list of parts for that matter. J
  10. Thank you for your reply and taking the time. I will have a closer look at the pdf you did for me and see if that helps. I have done a few of the MOC now, but only the ones that have PDF Instructions. I will continue to try to get the Instructions to work, the crawler crane really grabbed me, as have a couple of other, but, .IO & .LDD files, so maybe not. Thanks again. Colin
  11. Clearly I misread your intention but on the “HELP - Points/Levels/Badges” page, it says “Once you reach very high levels you can even win some prizes: Level 15 - Receive 3 months of Pro Plan for free”. There is no restriction listed about this only applying to Free users. When you announced the change of the point system in the blog (long prior to my signing up for Pro), you mentioned that existing users who were jumped past Level 15 won’t get the bonus but I read that as a one-time restriction due to the large number of impacted users. You also said “sorry, providing credits/discounts isn’t supported by PayPal” so I read this as a prize only available for Stripe-based users. I want to be very clear that I really appreciate all the work you’ve done on the site and the three month free is by no means a big deal for me but I think the language on the pages needs to be updated. It is misleading to imply it is a prize for being an active member of the community you’ve built and then to not provide that prize to those very people. So that I’m clear moving forward, would there be any reason I would want to switch from PayPal to Stripe? Also, do the prizes at Level 20 (Raffle)/25 (Pro Plan for life)/30 (About Us page) apply to users already signed up for Pro like myself?
  12. I don't give Stripe users the free 3 months either (did I give that indication somewhere?). If you are already on Pro when you hit level 15, nothing happens sorry. If everyone was 100% Stripe I would probably try harder to automate it, but dealing with the two types of payment processors complicates things too much.
  13. I can't reproduce this problem. Can you please provide me the exact URL where this occurs?
  14. Working on it. Thanks for the additional info.
  15. I checked both studio and ldd versions of the main model. Studio loads the model instantly, but as the designer explained (sort of) the model has no defined steps, so Studio can't generate an instruction PDF. You can hide all parts, and then in the parts list unhide each part to build it. Your problem doesn't seem to be with Studio itself, but with LDD. LDD treats every parts as a single step, so the instruction generator is trying to create a 1,783 page instuction webpage. Generation itself took about 20 minutes on a 3 GHz quad-core, saving to disk another 5 minutes. Generating the PDF took 10 minutes. The resulting PDF (25,6 MB) can be downloaded here. In general though, if you are completely new to these programs, you're better off starting with a smaller MOC to get some experience with the software. Your MOC choice has over 2,000 parts, and even with good instructions, it might prove difficult to build. Take care, Simon
  16. Create a new part list, import some parts from a csv and you will see the bug. It seems that is a problem of imported parts...
  17. OOOpps, of course there is, sorry. Refering to MOC-22859.
  18. Hi, Retrieverfalcon, Don't know anything about PayPal, so I have to leave this to @Nathan... Take care, Simon
  19. Hi, Cadman! Rebrickable has almost a dozen Crawler Crane MOCs. Which one are you talking about? Take care, Simon

    Updating LDraw Images

    @SimLego- Using your example I am confident I can create more of those Unofficial LDraw Shortcuts, but I got a lot going on right now, so it might take a few weeks. Obviously, if you create some others in the mean time, that would be perfect. If needed, you can mail them to simonvanmeygaarden at gmail.com, and I'll take care of it. If you have any other examples of shortcuts we can use, please let me know. Take care, Simon
  21. When I initially signed up for an annual Pro plan, I paid with PayPal. Since then I've came to realize there would be an advantage to using Stripe - namely the three free months I would/should have gotten for achieving Level 15 (I'm now Level 17). If I cancel my subscription in PayPal, I know I'll keep Pro features until my current payment expires. If I re-signup using Stripe, when would the billing start? Would it tack onto the end of my old PayPal subscription? Would I get the three free months? I don't mind changing where I pay but I don't want to double-pay to switch billing systems. Are there any other distinctions between using PayPal vs. Stripe other than the Level 15 bonus? On a side note - the plans page needs to be much more explicit on the restrictions of the PayPal option - especially since that is a much more common online payment system to many users than Stripe (which I know from backend processing but don't think of nearly as much as a payment choice). It would also be useful to have clearer instructions for switching between the two processors.
  22. Hi, It seems that the problem still exits. Sorting by Color, Part and Category isn't still working as expected.
  23. If you post a comment for the MOC, the designer will receive an email. Explain what is happening, and maybe the designer can help you.
  24. Studio.io and studio2.io is a broken program on many computers, so your most likely not doing anything wrong. I have tried that program on two of my machines after they broke it a two years ago. (it was working fine before that) One I only get a black screen, the other the mouse pointer goes behind the program and isn't rendered. So the program is unusable. MOC people should really stay away from that software or make pdf instructions after working with it, if your lucky enough to have the software run on your machine.
  25. Hi , I would like to build MOC- Crawler Crane. I have followed the link to get the building instructions, installed the Studio 2 programme that is needed to view the ,IO files and as far as I can tell there are no instructions. Just a list of steps. I have downloaded both files that are on Bricksafe. I also have Lego Digital Designer but all I seem to have is a screen with the modules on it. Activating the Insgtuction part of the programme just locks my Laptop up. Have to use Task Manager to close it down. Have left it for over ann hour. Can any one help with what I am doing wrong or if I am using the wrong programmes or need more.Thank you

    Updating LDraw Images

    Of course it is OK. I thought about doing that in the first place, but realized it could cause some other problems when viewed directly in an LDraw viewer.

    Updating LDraw Images

    @SimLego I'd like to change the color of the torso to 16: 0 // torso 1 16 0 -72 0 1 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 1 973p47.dat thus my scripts will render the part in Red, and the system doesn't have to fall back to the Unknown Color version. Is that OK with you?
