legoMYST: The Adventure Becomes Plastic

Postby SPC_Kubrick » Tue Oct 21, 2014 5:22 pm

Here is a tribute to Myst and an example of my creativity.

It's a project that really started when I was a youngster, when I tried re-creating the library out of LEGO pieces but ran out of said pieces.

More recently, I bought a copy of The LEGO Movie on DVD and learned about a free program called LEGO Digital Designer.

Soon, I was able to pick up where I left off with the idea for a LEGO model based on the library from Myst -- more completely and even with some artistic license.

Before I knew it, my imagination continued wandering.

Ideas continued popping into my head on how I'd model this, that, and the other from Myst to the scale of LEGO minifigures -- and they simply begged to be actualized.

Soon, my adventure ended with this video presentation.

Note:

Please correct me if the video can be embedded somehow.

That looks absolutely fantastic. Good work. Are you planning on creating the island etc for it all to sit on as well? I know Lego used to allow you to order all the parts you needed to build your LDD creations in real life. Not sure if hey do that anymore though.

Honestly, that is a dream of mine.

However, since LDD was getting laggy at the end of my modeling of the library, I'm feeling very iffy about the idea.

Actually, I'm hoping that an enterprising AFOL (Adult Fan of LEGO) would be willing to use or acquire his / her own pieces to pick up where I left off.

Of course, I won't make anyone do that; I just believe it's likely.

I know Lego used to allow you to order all the parts you needed to build your LDD creations in real life. Not sure if hey do that anymore though.


Yes, LDD was originally meant for The LEGO Group to allow people to order their own customized building kits; and no, they don't do that anymore.

From the official LDD website:

Despite this success, the overall Design byMe experience has struggled to live up to the quality standards for a LEGO service. As a result, the LEGO® Design byME service was closed in January 2012.


Most AFOLs simply use BrickLink to order the parts they need to build their stuff.

I prefer to save my money for things that are even more important to me; LDD has allowed me to express myself and save money.

Very cool. Very, very cool. Thanks for sharing.


I have an extreme need to have this.


That looks absolutely fantastic. Good work.


Thank you much for the praise; I appreciate it and see it as proof that there is potential in my creativity. :D

Maybe you could release your designs, so other people could carry on the great work. Maybe even a collaborative effort could be done to design an entire Myst Island.

That's why I've uploaded the LXF files here. :mrgreen:

Bear in mind, one would have to install LDD before viewing the files.

Fortunately, I already have. However, you need to make that folder public, else no-one will be able to use them.

Does it say somewhere that it's not public?

Very cool and I would love to see such a thing like this as a real lego Myst Island. Also I wonder how well 'Lego Myst' would play. Lego Myst would play like Lago Indando Jones and Lego Star Wars but you explorer Myst Island and solve Myst puzzles.

I doubt the Lego game franchise would mesh well with Myst. Having played a number of them (Star Wars, Indiana Jones, LotR, Batman), the central feature is a very fight-driven action. Naturally, this is impossible for a Myst game. I'd much rather have sets, probably in the style of the Lego Architecture sets.

Put the creation up on LEGO Ideas and see if you can get enough support for it to become a real set! :)
