    Where I can find these linking option in the Rebrickable preferences? I am blind?

    Account - Settings - API

    At the bottom it will tell you what external site keys you have saved.

    In your set lists on the left you will see the option to sync sets TO or FROM Brickset. 

    That's the extent of the options available on Rebrickable, as far as I can tell.

  2. Is your script on github or anything?

    The best I've come up with is to

    1. Create the custom list

    2. Move all the sets into parts, delete the sets

    3. Export the custom list as rebrickable csv

    4. Use the csv to "subtract" the parts from the parts list

    5. Use the csv to create a new parts list

    Much easier.

  3. I'm having a bit of trouble here. Say I own three sets -

    1. Set 100
    2. Set 101
    3. Set 102

    Now I like a lot of aspects of these, and they fit together as a theme, so I make something using them. But, I don't use all the parts from all the sets.

    So I create a custom list "My Series 100 MOC" of the parts that I used, and since these sets are in a list that is "Used in build calculations", when I hit the button to "Build this List", I get the result that I have 100% of the parts, yay!

    What I want to do is mark these parts I used as something that's built, because they are unavailable to me if I'm looking to build something else. That would require these parts not be included in "Used in build calculations".

    The only solution I can figure is that I

    1. Go to sets 100, 101 and 102 and click "Add Set's Parts to List" (parts list named "Series 100 MOC Parts") and then mark the sets as either not being owned, or put in a set list to not be used in build calculations
    2. Go to my custom list "My Series 100 MOC" and export the part list
    3. Import the "My Series 100 MOC" parts into my parts list "Series 100 MOC - Built" (Now I have duplicated parts)
    4. Manually find all the parts from "Series 100 MOC - Built" in the "Series 100 MOC Parts" list and remove them from it
    5. Everything left in "Series 100 MOC Parts" would then be moved to say "Loose Parts" and "Series 100 MOC Parts" would be deleted.
    6. Set "Series 100 MOC - Built" to not be used in build calculations

    Do I have this right? Or is there an easier way?

  4. You know, I think this is a good idea and well reasoned, but I think it might add a layer of complexity that is not needed.

    An example - if I apply my stickers, then do I have the sticker sheet or do I not have the sticker sheet? I don't usually find sticker sheets in the back of the instructions listed as a part if I'm checking a set in the box vs the instructions..

    Never found one that can handle dynamic growth or help with the rearrangement. There is plenty that handle static storage, in that case a simple excel sheet do the trick. I could write one myself but I don't think I will ever get that kind of free time until I retire. which is decades away.

    Huh, you might want to give it a shot at https://softwarerecs.stackexchange.com/ then, seems a database should be able to handle data coming in like that e.g.

    Box 13 Scanned
    Shelf 2 Scanned
    Box 13 is currently at Shelf 2
    Box 13 Removed
    Shelf 2 Empty
    Box 13 Scanned
    Shelf 4 Scanned
    Box 13 is currently Removed
    Shelf 4 Empty
    Box 13 placed in Shelf 4

    With some error handling on the front end that would be a pretty simple back end.

    Right now, LEGO draws that line. For example those classic sets, they contain an ideas booklet that has instructions for let say six different small builds, then we consider those small builds sub-sets. Later on, LEGO might publish some additional PDFs on their instructions website, those too are considered sub-sets.

    So basically, if LEGO made separate instructions for a model, and LEGO has a good image for that model, and one of our members (or admins) has the set and can rebuild the model, we can add it as a sub-set. Usually the contents of a classic set allow you to build several sub-sets at once, sometimes even all.

    If you can't build the different models at once, as in Creator 3-in-1 sets, we use the largest model for the set image, and add the other two as b-models.

    Now, there could exceptions to these guidelines. For example, a Speed Champions set that contains two cars. Lots of people like cars, maybe you'd want to build one and not the other, so having each car as a sub-set (both can be made at the same time) makes sense. Same for Microfighters that contains two ships, or perhaps Brickheadz double packs.

    Right now, we do NOT consider individual minifigs as sub-sets, and we won't approve them, except within Collectible Minifig sets and Advent Calenders (as daily builds).

    Furthermore, I think a sub-set that is not LEGO defined has to have a certain complexity before we can accept it as sub-set. A three part oil barrel or a five part street light could well be seen as a sub-set, and might even be present in several sets, but an inventory of three or five parts makes no sense, and it is not worth the effort.

    Hope that explains our policies.

    Perfect explanation - thank you

    I don't think alt count as missing because if they do more than half of the rebrickable catalog is bound to be missing. it us as user that more or less add those they don't come in automatically.

    Unless an admin has the set it is also hard for us to determine what parts are in these subsets. Sub-set additions are much better submitted through the Submit Set page by Users who have the 'Master' set.

    Ah, fair enough. What would they be then? Subsets? Would that be the same as (for instance) creating the minifig portions of large sets. Or the pelican for Old Fishing Store 21310? Who draws the line?

    These four sets -

    • 1561-1 - Stunt Chopper

    • 1562-1 - Wave Jumper

    • 1563-1 - Track Blaster

    Do not show up in the Build Search. If I go to the set pages, they show I have 100% of the parts. The sets are included in my build option settings, the sets are not ignored and are not assembled.

    Oh, you need to set your country by clicking the flag/JP icon at the top or the new Country setting on the Personalisation tab. I think your changing the Location setting on the Account tab which is just for display to other users.

    Oh, that's what I've been doing, but it's not sticking. Uh.. maybe I'll clear my cookies and stuff and try again.
