BrickUniverse Raleigh 2016 Creations Posted by Richard on April 6, 2016 at 07:01 PM CST:
This year BrickUniverse in Raleigh had well over four times the content of last year's event. I've put together just over an hours worth of MOCs into a video here on youtube. Sadly a few MOCs were missed, at least two to my knowledge that had to leave early with their creator. I also did not have video of the moving creations since they were only running during public hours. Forum linkOOPS! "The 1st Shadow" informed me the video was set to private. Its fixed now.

BrickUniverse Raleigh 2015 display (Last Year's Event) Posted by Richard on March 30, 2016 at 11:39 PM CST:
With Brick Universe coming up in a couple days, now is probably a good time to check out the last Raleigh event. I put together a video attempting to show off as much of last year's creations as I could, though I did miss a few interesting things that were not up for the entire duration of the event. The video may look a little chaotic, but I did try to give everything a good lookover for the viewers, and not just a quick glance.
A Peek At BrickUniverse' Fan Zone Details Posted by Richard on March 30, 2016 at 09:44 PM CST:
I have a preliminary layout image of the fan zone for this year's BrickUniverse in Raleigh coming up in a couple days, including some details on the attendees who have brought their own creations in. The Fan Zone is the section for everyday builders like you and me (and I have a nice display going if I may say so), so it doesn't include professional builder's displays, vendors, and other exhibits at the event.

LEGO® Worlds Update 5 Is Live Posted by Richard on March 30, 2016 at 09:16 PM CST:
The early access game LEGO® Worlds just received another "major" update via the Steam platform. This update mostly covers improvements to the interface to make things more accessible to players. I haven't touched it in a while, but the interface was one of my complaints. Another nice touch is Dual Shock 4 support via USB connection (Its had Xbox controller support for a while now apparently). You can see the list of changes here. Forum link.
