Here is how far I have gotten in LDD
and here is how far I have gotten in reality
My build area for City is over 10ft :-)
That's too childish? That is what a city should look like. It's awesome. I am doing the same thing with my city. Soccer stadium as a major focus. I used Main Street and made 4 city blocks as my "down town" district. Harbour area is mad of 5 of the old seaports. I have 3 diff trains running thru town. Plus the monorail acts like the L train. Residential areas all on the outside. A beach area. Yes, I have the entire basement to work with but if I had to stay to just a tiny 10 foot or under area, not worth it. I am going to start on city number two actually in another of the rooms in the basement since I have 2 of a lot of things from the 80's. Two airports, police stations, fire stations, etc. Even have an "old time" area set up with a classsic 12 volt steam train, the old Town Square sets. Made some more similar buildings and it looks great.
Just wish I had another huge area to make a classic castle layout since I have amassed massive amounts of 80's castles and sets.
Unlike other AFOLS I have no desire to build 80's sets, as I already said each to their own
The kids can build stuff on the outer edges, and the more details items can be inaccessible.
Basically, trying to build a nice city that all can enjoy from 5-year-olds to adults. Thoughts?
I need some more road plates.
I wish Lego made a passenger bus, coach etc.
Pity, since I was hoping to get another one using a voucher, for the second voucher and free set. Oh, and they were £69.99
Here is the layout we had until we moved, very simple and built on top of two 6ft paste tables bolted together-
We'll be setting it up again shortly with a few of the newer sets and many more creator houses!
