Minifig Torso patterned part naming convention extended


Minifig Torso patterned part naming convention extended
#1
With the (currently 7 x 16) new minifig torsos in the Collectable Minifig series, the existing 973pXX naming convention cannot cope.

Please use 973pc[series : 1-7][sequence : 1-9,a-f].dat for these.

cant't we go the way extending 973pXX to 973pXXXX ?

(as we don't have a 8.3 filename limit anymore.)

Yes. What exactly are you suggesting?

Ah, sorry, this was a mistake on my side. I misread
973pc[series : 1-7][sequence : 1-9,a-f].dat
for
973c[series : 1-7][sequence : 1-9,a-f].dat
and was not happy to see the "p" go away. This was an error on my side.
As long as we keep the "p" for "patterned", I'm happy with whatever numerical code follows.
Sorry for the confusion.

I take it you want to use a single digit hex value for the seq? If so you need to add '0' or you will only have 15 items in a sequence.

And that's assuming LEGO wont come up with a special collection edition of 20 items or something Smile

The minifigs in each series already have sequence numbers on the checklist, so using 0-f would be too confusing.

So, make that 973pc[series : 1-7][sequence : 1-9,a-g].dat (a=10...g=16).

Now that we have unnumbered series (Simpsons, The LEGO Movie) and I now count the Team GB mini-series in this category, we need a further range, so I have alllocated 973pdxy.dat (x=0 for Team GB, x=1 for Simpsons, x=2 for The LEGO Movie).

The reference page has been updated.

I would guess, then, that you're not going to renumber 973 any time soon?

Even if I were, why would this be a problem? 3814pc[1-7][1-9a-g].dat wouldn't even break the legacy 8.3 naming convention.

If I did create 230+ renamed files and their ~Moved to files, would you be there to cast some certify votes? Or would we just clog the Parts Tracker with Hold votes for non-BFC and other trivial problems?

I suspect the latter. Once we get a chance to 'fix' things (even if they're not so much broken as imperfect) we do tend to leap at it.

I vote for leaving them.

I don't have a problem with leaving it be. Most users don't model based on the number anyway. That said, I though we determined that trivial MoveTo items could bypass PT altogether?

They cannot easily bypass the PT, because that provides the framework for constructing Parts Updates. But if I could find a neat way to do code it on the back-end, they could get approved for release with a single PTadmin review.

Then it would be fine to rename them, present situation is a bit weird with all minifig parts but torso using LEGO design id.

Did I have a tone? :-) No problem on my end. My implication was more one of getting the changeover done earlier, rather than later, with things expanding.

If that would help get it done, yes. I'd work over-time helping to get them certified.

I would hope not. That wouldn't be me doing it.

Not really, it just seemed to be a non sequitur.

I now believe I have implemented a "fast-track" review in the Parts Tracker, so that Admin reviews of trivial changes (title changes, renames) can go directly to "ready for release".

Excellent. Very quick and useful work Smile
