Well done. I really like the roofing of the buildings!

Indeed!

So, a film about the American Revolution, eh? Don't forget to mention Common Sense! Wink

Thanks, I was quite happy with those designs as well.

Yup! And I wish I could, but I have a deadline to meet and I barely got in what I wanted. It mainly focuses on the tariffs that angered the colonists and their reactions. And there's a bit of Star Wars in there, too. Smile

Ah..

Well, to return to the creation, the lighting is intriguing. Is that building really red? It's not an often-used colour for buildings..

It is, yes. I don't have many dark colors (Dark green, blue, etc.) that I would've used for buildings, so I had to use red. It's supposed to be a brick schoolhouse under construction.

Sort of, yes. I was originally just doing it for fun, but when I told my history teacher he said it could be extra credit. Considering I don't test as well as I'd like, this would bump me up to an "A" if I get it done before the term ends. Which is before Thanksgiving.

Very nice! My only complaint is the building on the far left. The walls are too plain. Perhaps some windows would suffice.

Well that's cool. Doing a fun project for extra credit is always awesome.

That is a really nice job. If I could build legos for extra credit that would be awesome. You should get or make a ship and reinact the Boston Tea Party.

It is a nice town. Like TB said the roofing is cool. But the red school house is so so, it could use more of a birck school house look. Hope you can get it done before Thanksgiving.

Please edit your post(s) and use proper spelling, grammar, capitalization, & punctuation. Thanks. CABG Staff

I think the buildings could have used some tiling...Or more greebs, oh and another boat would be great. Wink

That little tree in there doesn't seem to fit, but a little flower pot or bush would be better.

You should definitely play Shipping Up To Boston by the Dropkick Murphy's if you finish the video. Great job on the scene. It's very rare that we see an American Revolutionary Era moc.

Well, looking from the first picture the picture looks like it has too much exposure, and all those studs do look a bit tiring but then again it is a big build and the idea is great. Wink

(It would be awesome to see some small vignettes of this time period)

Yes, that's the tavern where most of the film takes place. If I had made windows, I would've needed a huge set outside the main interior one. Does that make sense? Sorry if it doesn't.

Yeah, if I had the pieces to do it I would've. Thanks!

@CommanderKill and Legorev: Haha, thanks for the songs, guys! I've never heard either of those. I might use Shipping Up to Boston.

CloneCommandoXion wrote:I think the buildings could have used some tiling...Or more greebs, oh and another boat would be great. Wink
Well, this wasn't a very advanced period of time. America was still expanding, and more thought was on freedom and ideas rather than architecture and other tangible things. And adding another boat would only make the scene a lot more crowded that it needs to be. But thank you!

Back then, they either chopped the trees down or left them as they were, I'd imagine. America was more about natural beauty, which is why I used a tree. I guess I would either get rid of the tree or keep it as it is.

Well, this is a movie set first and a MoC second. I have a lot of people and horses walking around, and I needed studs to do that. As for the exposure, I guess that was too much Photoshoppin'. Razz

Indeed! If I ever get some more time away from school I'll have to try some more.

Thanks for all the comments and critique, guys! You've got some really nice ideas, but it seems to me that most of what you guys think should be changed would work if this was set in modern times. What I considered when I was building this was the fact that this wasn't at the height of architectural genius, or to make it look like a pretty scene in terms of SNOT. I do appreciate the feedback, though! Smile

I'm not so sure about the green/red. make the roofs brown, the buildings look right otherwise. Maybe a brick texture. IMO, it'd seem more accurate. Now, I'm being nitpicky because I live about 2 miles away from Boston Harbour, and there are some buildings from that era still around. Razz

Maybe use More Than a Feeling for a drama type part in the film. Otherwise, use clips from Shippin' Up to Boston. Youtube's a great place to look up songs. Razz

You may want to fix that. Wink Anyways back on topic I agree about the roofs, they should be brown now that I look at it.
