CHALLENGE BUILD #9- "THEME SWITCH!" January 2013
Join to comment
 Group admin 
Happy New Year MOCing Compatriots! I am proud to announce the next challenge build for the BCBS (compliments of December's winner Chronos Omega), and I quote:

Theme Switch!

"Build a Bionicle MOC (Bio-MOC)inspired by a different Lego theme. This inspiration should be clear and obvious (color scheme, weapons/tools, etc.). For example, you could create a Blacktron Makuta, or perhaps a Rock Raiders Toa of Earth! The possibilities are (almost) endless!
Important: Hero Factory and other constraction figure lines are not allowed for obvious reasons."

So there it is. Pick a "non-constraction" Lego theme and base a Bio-MOC around that theme's look. Post it and compete. Due by the 14th! Start the year right. Get to work! BCBS!

Would Exo-Force count as a Constraction theme? Please say no D:

Yes, usually a few of the pictures won't upload, but on a second or third try they will and then I have to re-sort. Kind of a pain. :{(

Ok, someone help me out here. I posted a moc, but some how all the pictures are not showing. Chronos told me to go through Flickr, which is fine, except for the fact that I don't have one of those...nor a facebook...nor anything else. So what do I do?
Permalink
| January 11, 2013, 12:13 pm
Just make a flickr account. It's free and takes, like, three minutes. XD
Or of that's not an option, make a Brickshelf account. It takes time for your account to be approved and then more time for the images to go public, but it's reliable and easy to link/embed (though not as easy as flickr).

Once you upload the pictures, there's an icon above the top left (on the page for each picture) that says "share". If you click that, it'll give you the HTML to embed the pictures. All you need to do is copy and paste it onto the MOCpage. :)

It's acceptable to post your MOC with bad pictures, just to prove that it exists. Then you can update the page later with better pictures.

Mmm... I'll try to explain it, but I'm not sure I'll do it well. Let's see, in the code you can read in the first and the fourth-fifth lines "width" & "height". Changing the numbers on both lines would allow you to change the size of the video, so if you reduce the height it would be like you want to be. However, keep in mind that some videos won't work at reduced sizes.

Should someone with a better control of the language make a better explanation of you understand me, dear? =)
