Questions regarding building a tank and helicopter in LDD.

Postby Bluehawk2000 » Fri Sep 05, 2008 4:56 pm

I'm trying to build a tank in LDD and since LDD lacks treads I'm using the wheel that is about the size of a 2x2 round,they also recently redesigned it to have connectors and different designs on both sides. Anyway I'm not sure to use the original tire or the "low ride"(that is actually the name in LDD) tire.

The helicopter is inspired by the russion MI-24 "Hind". Heres a link to the brickshelf gallery

Heres a link to the thread I posted about the helicopter at Classic-Space
http://www.classic-space.com/plugins/forum/forum_viewtopic.php?73956

Both of these are designed for brikwars, along with a few other I'm building. there designrd to be cheap and look good at the same time, because its always awesome to have a few identicle tank(or any vehicle for that matter).

The only question I saw so far was "what are you talking about," and I think we covered it pretty well.

Um, let me make a (probably vain) attempt at helping you out, Bluehawk. With the tank, just go with whatever looks best. If the boot fits, wear it!

Also, the helicopter DOES look good so far. Keep it up!

This got off-topic in the 2nd post. I am looking forward to see a topic get off-topic in the first post.

Well what I was asking is what tire would be a better tank tread substitute, and how do you like the heli so far.

Well, who are you building it for? Us, or you? Because if the answer is you, then you'll probably have a different opinion than a lot of the people you'll find here :P

Plus, we can't very well answer if we don't know WHICH tires you're talking about. There are a bunch of different tire pieces, and you expect us to know which two you're talking about?

Just a thought (or two).
