Does anyone know how to open MPD files in Lego Digital Designer? I'm trying to make instructions for myself about the reverse-engineered Lego Universe pets, which you can find on MOCpages under "LEGO Universe Pets" by "Brent S." I'd post a link, but the bots on the wiki think it's spam. Let me try here:

Everything's an MPD, though, and LDD can't open it.

(Please note I am UTTERLY new to the complexity of Digital Lego, and I’m just trying to make physical Lego Universe pets because,

1: I collect and build physical Lego, casually, though,
2: I was unable to play Lego Universe before it went offline,
3: I was unable to enter for the current bout of the Darkflame Universe revival project, 
4: I’ve been looking for nice microbuilds to pass the time and display with my Lego animals, and thought the Lego Universe pets were cool and cute enough to be perfect.

I hope someone can help me. Thanks for reading.
Nice project indeed!
It is possible to convert a MPD to be read by LDD, but (especially since you are new to it) the simplest is to use directly LDraw system (a MPD is a LDraw model file). Install the All in one installer http://www.ldraw.org/article/104.html and open your model with one of the editors provided (LDCad is highly recommended).
