Ignoring the file name, sweet zombie moses this guy is good - not just in the rendering he uses in LDD (speaking of which, how the fuck does he do that?!) but his vehicles are ungodly levels of awesome.

Mentlegen of the LDD circle, we need to step up our game.

I saw his mech posted somewhere also. I like the idea of building a cockpit with attachment areas for arms/wings and legs/propulsion systems. It has pretty good brikwars potential. Just build the same cockpit a few times and customize with different arms and legs.

That's what I was referring to! I only browsed the post but it looks like the cockpit stays mostly the same with all other parts interchangeable, right?

It seems like the nose changes somewhat but the cockpit remains essentially the same, yeah. If you look at his other creations, I think this technique is part of what makes him such a good LDD Builder. Builds with multiple loadouts seem slightly different in the base model. Just a handful of parts, but it's noticeable enough to give each piece its own character and flair.

Upon clise study of some of his models (ones that had LDD files linked) I found out that he's been making his own LDD parts, or atleast someone has. Here are some that I've noticed: Collectible Minifigs Paintball helmet, a 3x3 flat and a 2x2 tile with studs on the bottom (from the clones vs droidekas set). Does anyone know how to make new LDD parts or anyone who makes them?

I know the latter two are actually parts currently in LDD.

You don't need to bang it you need to build it, then brikwar it, then destroy it.
