    Recreated all of Lego Island's buildings in LDD

    Also the images do not work anymore. I would love to have seen these and maybe download them. I hope the owner is still on rockraidersunited and is able to fix this post for us, but this is really old, so I expect the worst.

    LEGO Racers 1 & 2 Cars

    The Digital Designer file was not my work but someone else shared it with me. I maybe able to upload and share a copy of it if it is needed. I have made my own copy on Studio 2.0 found on BrickLink, with instructions.

    Lego Racers 2 - RL Cars

    Can people re-edit their posts and put new image sources? So many photos are no longer visible sadly.

    LEGO Racers 1 & 2 Cars

    Yeah, a lot were sets from what I recall. Were some custom ones like bonus game 2-seater car. Unique ones like Rocket Racer's car. In fact bought Sam Sinister's boss race car before. There was a Dino Island truck which looked unique to me. If anyone has sources to LEGO Racers 2 unique builds, that be great.

    LEGO Racers 1 & 2 Cars

    I feel like a lot of the LR2 cars were actually sets. Or alt builds of sets. I'm afraid I don't have enough sources, but for instance, the alt build of 5934 (which you can, very handily, get from Lego's own Building Instructions page - yes, it includes alt builds where available) is definitely a car I remember in LR2. I'd start with trying to find the sets for the themes and seeing if you could find all the alt builds associated with them. EDIT: Ah! I knew I remembered something on RRU! This thread!!

    LEGO Racers 1 & 2 Cars

    If you want to build lego racers 1 card you could try this link: https://www.bricklink.com/v3/studio/design.page?idModel=102180 and this https://oresome.rockraidersunited.com/download/67. I am also trying to rebuild atleast the cars in lego racers 1, but I am trying to create the ingame version with some impossible parts to get it as close as possible. Probably not something you are looking for. Lego racers 2 is my next goal. I am glad you have some pictures and videos. It would make it a lot easier for me to start doing this next.

    Realistic Illustration of Chief

    Hello there! Nice to see professional illustrations on RRU : ). I don't really remember many other comparable examples on this site (there are more examples from other sites like DeviantArt). A few years back (2 or 3?) a comic artist posted a picture of the Granite Grinder (and probably other pictures), but there wasn't any further activity. RRU also has an art thread (and sometimes members made separate ones), but they are basically all inactive now (I tried to revive one, but it didn't work). I like the addition (or rather change) of the mechanical arm since the original was just a simple turquoise pipe (to be fair: it's a minifigure and the print options were more limited back then). In theory you could argue that a protective cover like for industrial robots would be more realistic, but on the other side it would just look lame and like something wrapped in foil XD. By the way: Is there a part that you personally found the most challenging or interesting?

    Realistic Illustration of Chief

    New to this group so thought this would be a cool introduction! I played the PC version of Rock Raiders when it released and fell in love with the music, characters, and overall aesthetic of the game. Around that time I had several of the Lego sets but later on all the pieces got lost or put in storage. It wasn't until a few years ago that I went ahead and bought all the sets again including some I never owned before. I also bought Pohatu (with his original canister/disc) and did a realistic drawing of him. This started a series of realistic interpretations of Lego mini figures including one from Ice Planet (2002) and a Zotaxian from the UFO 1997 sets. So being a huge fan of Rock Raiders I want to do realistic illustrations of all the characters from the Rock Raiders sets so thought I'd start with Chief.

    LEGO Racers Instructions & Part Lists

    Only just come across this, awesome!

    LEGO Racers 1 & 2 Cars

    LEGO Racers 2 has always been my favourite of the series, but I understand some have passionate love for the original. Still, both games had some very fantastic LEGO cars which we all love. I have always seen that more focus has been spent on LEGO Racers 1 than LEGO Racers 2, but here are things I have found. LEGO Racers 1 LEGO Racers 1999 All Race Champions Review on YouTube On the RRU Gallery, LEGO Racers Cars by jojo337 LEGO Racers 2 On the RRU Gallery, LEGO Racers 2 Cars by dy_enforcer How to Build Rocket Racer's Car from Lego Racers 2 on YouTube Building Session - Sandy Bay Bonus Car From LEGO Racers 2 on YouTube LEGO Digital Designer - LEGO Racers 2 Prop Car in Sandy Bay But however... If possible, I am looking for the instructions for these amazing builds. I would love to download these builds on Studio 2.0 and purchase the parts to build some of these myself. Like the LEGO Racers 2 Sandy Bay bonus car or some of the others. So if anyone can help me with finding download files for these amazing creations, so that I can source parts to build them, that would be fantastic!

    Are you able to remake some of these on Studio 2.0 builder?

    Bits N' Bricks Podcast

    In continuing with the theme of future preservation etc (even though it is quietly sitting there in the OP already - good job @Ben24x7 for quietly keeping it up to date), I thought it'd be worth mentioning that Rock Raiders got its own entire episode! Included is an interview with Karl White (that'd be the same dev as in this topic) which didn't unfortunately contain too many extra new insights into development, and an interview with our very own Cirevam (who runs the forum) and Baraklava (developing Manic Miners)! It's very neat stuff for Lego to acknowledge the classic games and this forum to such an extent.

    Forum Upgrade

    Nothing immediately looks broken so that's good! Also, is it just me, or is that logo new? I do have one complaint: links look really similar to underlines. Is that something that can be changed with a theme? EDIT: new theme, and yep, links and underlines are nicely different now! Also, are the "Rank" thingies planned to stick around? They feel pointless at best and elitist at worst, but that might just be me being pessimistic. If nothing else, getting an LRR theme on them would be nice.

    I'm reporting this site to the EPA... It's an environmental hazard, for my eyes!

    Forum Upgrade

    Rock Raiders United has been recently upgraded with new software. A new theme will be coming soon as well. Please report any bugs you find (posting in this thread is fine) or any other oddities. In addition, the broken Contact Us form should be fixed, so you can use that if you have trouble with logging in.

    CrystAlien Conflict Level 9 Aliens strategy

    Wow! Thanks for the in-depth analysis of the level! I love CrystAlien Conflict, but I've never been able to beat this level (fairly, anyway...). Lately, I've been yearning to replay the game again. This would be a great opportunity to test out your strategy. Kudos for not letting yourself get defeated by the game like I did... I certainly wouldn't mind further strategic insights in the future!

    Patented Brickster Dragon Breath

    Shifty is breathing fire. Maybe Wildfire will come out and eat him.
  27. Some of you might remember CrystAlien Conflict. It's a neat RTS made in 2007 as part of Lego's vast collection of Flash games for their products - this time to promote the theme Mars Mission. Kinda like LRR, the game always stuck with me, even though I found it often times easy and wished there was more to the game. Either way, it's still a playably fun game with infinitely less jank than LRR. You send out miners onto the crystals to get money to build buildings, train vehicles, and bring scores of lasers to your enemy! If you want to play it, it's on BioMediaProject's Lego archive. Anyway, the game has a set of story missions. Most of these are simple, some of them are cheesable, and a select few are very difficult. One of them is Alien Level 9, accessed with cheat code 5050. Your job is to get a Saboteur into the Satellite Uplink. But in order to do so, you have to get past the Astro defenses, and you only have a starting force (no base-building this time round!) to do it with. At first glance, this seems downright impossible and a recipe to pull out one of the cheat codes, as your starting units just can't destroy even one of the turrets. You're literally stuck, with no way off your little island home other than death. But! Each unit in the game has a hidden "priority" number. This ranges from the lowest of the low (which is probably Drones, the basic, fodder, infantry unit) to the most threatening units (Recon Dropships and Astro Fighters). This determines in particular what the AI will choose to shoot at, and it's a large part of what makes some of the other levels so challenging: you can't just sit with a tanky unit and send in glass cannons to destroy or sneak past, as the AI will retarget those higher-priority glass cannon units and destroy them. However we can use this to our advantage. By sending the Hyper Carrier (a top-priority unit) along with the Drones, the Defense Turrets will target the Hyper Carrier, giving you just that extra tiny bit of time to destroy a single Defense Station! What then? Well, it turns out this is nearly all you need. If you walk your Saboteurs down the dead center tile, they'll get shot at, and some of them will be destroyed, but reliably at least one Saboteur always makes it out alive. Yippe-kai-yay, we've got everything we need to finish the level! Well, not quite everything: there's a single infantry unit (make sure at least 1, preferably 2, Drones survive the onslaught to deal with this) standing between you and a hidden (but incredibly obvious) Breeding Pit. You can use this, combined with the two cash crates around the map ($2000 near home and $8000 hidden just below the left of the defenses) to build another Drone army, along with some Viper Attacks to dispatch the jetpack unit. Just don't make sure you accidentally aggro the Trikes at the wrong time (they have a pesky habit of sniping Saboteurs) and the level is straightforward! Addendum: The strat used in the current WR sells its Experiment Lab for a Viper Attack which then kites and slowly destroys one of the Defense Turrets for much of the same result. However you now only have a single Viper to deal with the Jetpack at the end of the map, and it's much slower, more tedious, and click-heavy. Addendum 2: There's a lot of RNG involved - in particular, whether the Hyper Carrier gets hit going diagonally, how many Saboteurs and Drones make it through, but I've found that the RNG is consistent enough for this to be a reliable strategy. Addendum 3: It's also possible to use three Saboteurs to tank instead, leaving your Hyper Carrier alive. However this isn't helpful, as the Hyper Carrier isn't able to fly through the gap without being shot down, as its hitbox is larger than that of a Saboteur. Addendum 4: Fun fact: If you don't own the Breeding Pit, and you use your last Saboteur to capture the Uplink, you'll lose the level. Despite fulfilling the win condition. But you lose. I thought RRU would be a good place to post what I found I'd searched for a cheat-less strategy, but hadn't found any, and thought there must be a way. And I found one!

    Western Sets

    I suggest using all marketplaces to find the best deal across all of them. Bricklink should have the most and best-standardized results.

    Western Sets

    For LEGO sets I explore both eBay and BrickLink. Using these two websites, I have noticed that LEGO Western sets are either really rare or really expensive. I have came across less popular LEGO marketplaces without much success. So I was just wondering... What LEGO marketplaces for old and discontinued sets do you suggest? Perhaps you know where LEGO Western sets can be found for good price?
  30. Hi @Sluicer I found that 2016 PS3 version of Lego Dimensions Sonic DLC is not supported by extractor. Could you please update it? https://drive.google.com/file/d/131MHkt9K35AMfGTbbTTh-lcQDkXfpsKc/view?usp=sharing
