  1. Doesn't make sense to run the price check for every part every day. Maybe for "new" part/color combos just added otherwise spread it out over a week for older parts/sets which are unlikely to change drastically fast. Personally I could run my RB site completely without price info, because I don't care about it. I am sure there is people who do. but if I could customize my settings to not load that info and get a faster experience that would be great, I could always turn it back on the few times I might want to see it.
  2. They all got unrealistic value since most collectors doesn't keep them in "new" condition but rather "used" which is far less valuable. You will never raise that amount money if you try to sell your parts, unless you kept them in a sealed boxes and what's fun with that? so treat it just as a fun fact.
  3. yep looks like there is some sets from 1990 and 1991 that clearly shouldn't have the 2412b. I can confirm 6354-1 and 1611-1 used the old 2412a.
  4. You should really post these questions on the studio.io forum, so if the feature doesn't exist it might be added by the developers. I can't help studio.io doesn't run on any of my computers so I have never had the chance to learn how to use the instruction part because their software broke for me before that was implemented.
  5. The problem with transitions periods is that they are different depending on color, I mean they produce each color in batches and they last different amount of time before they run out depending on how common the color was at the time. So it's impossible to have an accurate picture of when the move was made. Especially since there has been multiple factories for a very long time and then you have those last straggler pieces that end up in the bottom of the container that suddenly appear in a new sets way after they where out of production. this is why the best way is to do bulk change and then adjust it slightly on request because you can never hit the nail perfectly on a bulk change. But the time frame sounds quite right on this one.
  6. Because you need four of them not two. ie 2st black and 2st Light Bluish grey

    pneumatics

    Test it without load is all I can say but all my pneumatics is old school. the type you had to manually pump to get things moving...
  8. Those sets where released in many versions telling which version it is the hard part. but this is two different sets for sure. Edit : Actually I think it's three, because I don't think the Taxi and the cinema belong to same sets since the font style doesn't match.
  9. Imo we do not need more specific badges, badges should not influence what people build period. it should be more of an encouragement to build anything instead of doing nothing to get an active community.
  10. welcome, Have you checked the help section of the site there is a lot of information and getting started guide in there that can be useful for you, and more is added so it can be worth checking it once in a while. 30 bricks is a bit to small for a premium build imo. I don't think they have enforced the minimum size yet but there is a plan to restrict premium to a bit larger sets. with small sets like 30 bricks you have a 3D puzzle that can be solved with a picture and the inventory with some difficulty depending on how compact it is. I think there is some things to consider before going premium. the first one is do the money really matter? I mean if it will end up just being pocket money for you should consider releasing it for free and allow donations. and let as many enjoy the fruit of your work. I a in this camp, there is so many better ways to earn money that I wouldn't charge for a model even if it took months to complete. another reason to see if you actually have the potential support for a premium is to release the first few MOCS free to see how popular they are. if you put a paywall straight up your less likely to know the answer. and it can be a good idea to do a mix, Have some small free models available that might draw attention to the larger payed ones.
  11. Not glue, so the parts can be recycled into something else the day the mosaic isn't wanted anymore.
  12. an official source that is younger than brick links catalog and it's original source. so there is good reason why BL is as it is. Personally I have always seen the leg color as the main color and the hip as secondary. So first time I encountered BL I thought that was awkward to start with the hips. But then we have custom assemblies and some special sets where each leg has it's own color, which kind of make the leg as main color fall apart. luckily that is a special case rather than something common.
  13. I would say no to any "premium" instructions for original sets, it's better to allow some kind of donation for those who want to support people contributing. and as far as I see it the digital copy do not need to copy the original instruction step by step but allow the author freedom to rearrange the building phases if they think they can do better. as long as the end result is the same it shouldn't matter.
  14. Well then go around looking for something like this: https://za.rs-online.com/web/p/compression-springs/0751499/ it might not be exactly the right spring but should do the trick. Should be possible to buy in a local hobby store or hardware store.
