While I realize that very few (if any) people care, I have had in my mind an idea to create a "space cruise liner" for quite awhile now. Unfortunately, the parts that I had in mind to build it are no longer being manufactured by LEGO (in case you wonder what parts those might be, that would be part# 2408 and part# 2409). As such, I can't buy them from LEGO any more (I already called and asked). For awhile, I had given up hope of ever realizing my idea. But last night (uh, now...) I was bored/curious, and did a search for those pieces. And I have had success! There are numerous people reselling their LEGO pieces, and these parts are among the lot! Unfortunately, since I don't currently have a job, I can't afford to purchase them at this time. Nonetheless, for $10-$12 (plus shipping... Which is going to get expensive since they'd be shipping from Europe, from multiple people), I can get the 8 (1/4th dome) pieces, and 2-4 side panels I need.

In case you're wondering, I was planning on using the pieces to create a sort of "green house" or "viewing dome" for the top of the space cruise liner. The color I want is "transparent clear", but LEGO never released those parts in that color, so I'll have to settle for "transparent dark blue" (there's only 5 colors available, and "transparent yellow" or "transparent neon green" are $20 for one piece...).

Anyway, I posted that here, because I was quite excited to learn that the pieces I needed are available for somewhat reasonable prices. Yes, $1.50 (and up to $11) is expensive for 1 single LEGO piece (normally, when you buy a LEGO set, they average about $0.10 per piece), but considering the difficulty in obtaining this particular piece, I'd say the price isn't that bad. At least it's not $30 for one piece....

Oh, and on a slightly more related note (to games at least), I learned about Allods MMO (that's the European site. It has a little more content than the US site). One description I read of it called it "Skies of Arcadia, the MMO". Though, after doing so, they said not exactly, but that those who have played SoA will feel right at home. SoA is one of my top 5 favorite games of all time. I'm very seriously tempted to try this game out, but my computer doesn't have internet access, and this PC that I'm using has a hard enough time rendering videos. I have very low hopes that it would run a 3D game very well.

Anyway, I was happy to find the LEGO pieces I've been wanting for years. Since, as I said earlier, it's likely no one cares, then please carry on. Mouser X over and out.

I remember playing with Lego... the good old times. For some reason, I like reading your posts Mouser X. :)

I remember having a platform of a mountain that had Lego spots on them. I built a few cool things with it when I was younger. Then I got some Star Wars Lego pieces which I thought was cool at the time.

It would be really cool if NEZplug++ could pan channels like NotSoFatso. That would make NSFs much more enjoyable.

Made a forum on my site for all mgme and clambake discussion.

Speaking of NotSoFatso, I'd like to have UNKNOWNFILE's version of that plugin, since NEZPlug++ totally screws with the N106 emulation. (Broke alot of homebrew songs for me...) And I can't gage the Sunsoft5B volume so that's balanced between the 2A03's volume. (In NEZPlug++ it plays so quiet for me it's hardly noticeable there even is a sound extension in Gimmick!)

I also would like better VRC7 emulation too.

NotSoFatso's settings must be deleted in plugin.ini for it to work with XMPlay. That's weird.

Uh, or not?

Why can't there be like just one plugin that works right? D:

Why can't people write player's for .IT properly? Some of them that I've seen are complete shit... SchismTracker seems pretty good, considering it's re-implementing ImpulseTracker, working hard to be as close as the original as possible.

NEZPlug++ would be, *the* one plugin that would work right for me if the VRC7 and N106 emulation didn't sound so horrible... And if the volume settings for the Sunsoft5B were adjusted so they actually sound audible alongside the 2A03.
