  1. @Simon, did you notice the footer: I'm going to guess that they don't have any agreement with Rebrickable to be a "Trust By Brand" site. (Whatever that actually means.)
  2. I think that all three models can be classed as b models. Take Vacation Getaways for example (https://rebrickable.com/sets/31052-1/vacation-getaways/#alt_builds) it has only one b model currently which is the largest one from the set. I think it would make sense for the largest model to be b1 and the smallest b3 but that would depend on them being submitted in the correct order.
  3. Is this the only set where the set number changed when the packaging changed? Tower bridge for instance had a packaging refresh but is still 10214-1.
  4. Thanks, We've got about 50,000 part at the moment although 10% of those are Ninjago City so it looks like We'll need a similar size setup.
  5. Out of interest how many elements are you managing to store in setups like this?

    Editing Part Photos

    That's a great guide. Thanks for putting in the effort. Because almost all photos taken under artificial light have some sort of tint to them, I add another intermediate step. Assuming that the picture was taken against a white background you can use the levels tool found in the colours menu to correct the entire image. In my view this gives a final piece colour closer to the actual colour. To do this open colours/levels and select the pick white point option: Then click anywhere in the white background of the picture (or if using a white part then the actual part). This sets the background to white and adjusts the part's colour accordingly. Doing this to your before.jpg image gives this result, I may have gone slightly too far by selecting part of the shadow as the background but personally think the colour of the brick is better: Removing the shadows from this is then a slightly easier process. I also skip your crop step because the upload process on Rebrickable provides the option to crop the image. If you are already aware of the colour levels tool and chose to omit it then please accept my apologies for treading on your toes.

    Parts without images

    Am I remembering correctly to say that when the missing images list was created Nathan said he would consider adding the option to see parts with an image but no photo?
  8. For the benefit of anyone following this, here is a couple of details I have added in a pm which I previously forgot:
  9. To get an API code you need to go to https://rebrickable.com/users/slangivar/settings/#api and click generate API code. This will give you a random set of letters and numbers which you paste into my command. If you can share your google sheet and pm me the link I can take a look for you.
  10. I think you have hit the jackpot with that one. From what I can tell on bricklink it is this set: https://www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/catalogitem.page?S=darthvader-1#T=S&O={"iconly":0} I can't find the equivalent on Rebrickable and given it's exclusive nature it's quite possible it has never been added to Rebrickable.
  11. I'm not sure if there is a simpler way to do this. I have a google sheet which I use to convert the details from the order into a rebrickable csv file which I can then import. This requires a certain amount of experience dealing with spreadsheets. The setup is complicated by the fact that google sheets doesn't have native support for JSON. The instructions for this step can be found here: https://medium.com/@paulgambill/how-to-import-json-data-into-google-spreadsheets-in-less-than-5-minutes-a3fede1a014a Once you have that setup the command I use in google sheets is: =importjson("https://rebrickable.com/api/v3/lego/elements/"&substitute(A1,"_","")&"/?key=123YourKeyHERE456","/part/part_num,/color/id,/part/name,/color/name","noHeaders") You need to copy and paste the order details from your email into your sheets and then put the command above into the next column. You will also need to substitute your own API key at the relevant point. I don't know if this has ever been suggested on the suggestions forum but if not it would be worth asking for it.
  12. If you upload the .io file and select bricklink as the external source then it should import the part list fine. At least that is what I did for my penguin MOC last week.
  13. @cadman, Unless I am missing something the controllers are not listed in the parts lists under any of the three parts. I guess they are not included in his build on LDD and he has forgotten to add them manually.
  14. Yes, that sounds good. The officially numbered books such as build your own adventure have numbers similar to poly bags and some free gift sets so it makes sense to leave them as you say. But with ones with invented numbers the ISBN would make life simpler. I'll get the ISBN of mine tonight and send in a CR.
  15. Thanks. Will do. I usually do a CR but wasn't sure about books as I've never done them before.
