I have a questions concerning stickers. I used LPC to create 168275 Sticker with Holographic Spyrius Pattern. This sticker is only attached to 4215a Panel 1x 4x 3. I have created both the individual sticker (168275) and the Panel with holographic sticker already attached (4215pb003). I know that the sticker should be added to PT, but should I submit the panel with sticker attached as well, or since that is technically two different parts should I not submit it to PT? Any advice is helpful. Thanks.

The sticker looks great! But you have used color 383 for silver, should use color 80 (for more details, see this discussion http://forums.ldraw.org/showthread.php?t...214#pid214 ). Too bad LDraw doesn't have yet a holographic color for background Wink

No, 4215pb003 is wrong, you created it as a pure patterned part. What you might create is a shortcut with sticker attached, using 4215 + 168275 and name it 4215dxx. See http://www.ldraw.org/cgi-bin/ptdetail.cg...181d05.dat as an example, and http://www.ldraw.org/Article512.html#stickers for standards.

Now if (virtually) applying sticker is easy, I would not create the shortcut to avoid cluttering the library...
I'd agree on not having sticker AND part with sticker - I'd recommend including a help line with orientation and location relative to the intended part.
