stupid question is the digital designer tool where you are able to purchase the all white clones that are used for decals?

Yep, basically the only thing you have is base plates with large molded pieces and plates stuck in vertically. Instead down size. Use only one 32x32 and instead of large molded pieces see tutorial on rock texture. Then instead of plates build 1 stud wide walls with battle damage. Finally ground texture. Don't leave a blank baseplate. Use SNOT techniques or tiles. If can't do that then be sure to use plates to slight changes in evelvation. The earth hasn't been flat since 300 BC. Wink

Ok I've been doing a lot of work in the Lego cad software programs lately because I can refine what I'm working on per your recommendations. I would have used the "rock texture" idea from start if I had enough pieces like stated before. Thank you for your input.

I love and I am sure that everyone of the other guildies feel the same way. Smile

Never be afraid to ask for help! I did and had it not been for Knight and Lazerblade's help over PMs, I wouldn't be a guildie. Smile

Ok. First what theme? I can't tell completely, but it looks "modern" and the road is so plain. Why such a open road? The building is kinda boxy, and the windows are what I like to call line windows. They have no separation and they are in one straight line with no uniqueness. The building could also use some curves and/or sloping. Hope this helps!

Ok cool, I'll go work on that but do the windows need separation? I kinda meant it to be like an observation room. and to explain the unprinted no detail road each brick has to be connected to another stud.

Then raise the MOC up. Make the road 2 plates thick and connect the studs from the bottom set of plates to the baseplate. On the second layer of plates add a mix of tiles and other details such as rubble studs etc. Also the windows can be a long row, but since this is a smaller MOC I suggest you have lots of details like grill tiles, slopes etc. Small MOCs need lots of detail. Big MOCs shouldn't be attempted until detail is mastered.

No. I am not as picture editing savy as Rook, but here is my point.

----______---- Brick built road with tiles and curbs
---------------- Plates covering entire baseplate
---------------- Road Baseplate

Basically for small MOCs you should never see a baseplate. Use them sure, but see them no. Only time you should see a base plate is if you're going a large city like nine 32x32's or larger. And even if you can, brick build them. You get way more detail but of course this does mean thousands of pieces more. But until then just keep building and enjoying using whatever you have.

A road to a wall? Or to a gate? If you make a garage type building that could work to.

There is also the prblem of this being LDD and not real Legos, which means you'd be unable to do SNOT.

Add 2x2 dark grey tiles in the road,but don't cover the whole thing. Make it smooth, but destroyed.

First don't double post Wink
Second you do realize only brick built models can be summited for the guild.
Third You MUST detail the inside Wink Communication area, armory, anything you want!

come on! Smile of course I know not to double post I've been pretty good about that lately.. second I know it has to be brick built.. Razz what am I.. new here or something? Razz. I'm just refining so I know EXACTLY, what I want to do for a high detail build. LDD is a good beginner practice tool.
thanks for your input!
(oh I made the 2x2 tiles light grey to give it a little contrast)
