Star Wars Part Requests (1999) - Steven - 2022-05-22

Hey!

I'm a longtime LDD user who, three days ago, switched to Bricklink Studio after a long break. Since then, I've been going through and attempting to build every single official LEGO Star Wars model, in order of release.

I'm nearing the end of the 1999 sets and I'm noticing an increasing number of parts that cannot be imported into Studio. Many can be replaced with a near-identical part, but there are three that I feel could benefit from being fully recreated and, hopefully, added to Studio in some way, shape, or form. These parts are as follows:

FROM 7151 (Sith Infiltrator)
- 30366px3 (Windscreen 3 x 6 x 5 Bubble with Sith Infiltrator Pattern)
- 3037px2 (Slope 45 2 x 4 with Dark Gray and Black Lines Pattern)

FROM 7171 (Mos Espa Podrace)
- sw0980 (Sebulba)

I should note that sw0980 isn't catalogued on Bricklink as a part because it's a one-piece minifigure. I don't know if that bars it from being made available for importing into studio, but I included it here just in case it can be added.

I don't know if it helps, but I attached what I could find in the Bricklink catalogue to represent these missing parts.

Please let me know if I can help in any other way, or if any of these parts are available but I overlooked them.

Not to hijack the discussion, but may I ask what you are doing about capes? I also started to build some of the early SW sets, but quickly realized that I wouldn't be able to properly cape my minifigs without lots of collisions.

I just turned off collision detection. If the triangular warning sign above "collision" is red (near the top left), collision detection is on. Once I turned that off, I stopped having issues (though you'll get some phasing).

Ah, the old e-tape over the check engine light trick! Wink

I might be able to do 30366px3 but need to see if I can gather enough source images first. Or has anyone else started on this one maybe?

Not yet for me. Could you go ahead for 30366px3?

sw0980 should be the hardest, as raw mesh is not in the LDD, Unity or Instructions App collection  Sad

Yes, I can try. But I just realized that there are gradients in this print.  Do I need to go with TEXMAP then? Or do we just dither them roughly?

I will give sw0980 a try in ZBrush. see if I can make the initial mesh at least

First quick pass on Sebulba in Zbrush. With some adjustments and cleanup this might work well Smile
