Exploits are fun

Found an exploit allowing me to load DLC content from LEGO Star Wars The Force Awakens. Working on getting textures and models to load but that will take some time while I mess with the DAT format (need to figure out how to remove files from the archive).

LEGO Case for Arduino Ethernet

Recently, I have been working with an Arduino Ethernet (well, not an official Arduino. It's an Andymark clone that's just as good) that I found buried in my robotics teams many boxes of electrical components. We had never used it before and it wasn't surprising considering we don't have any means of programming it (unlike the Uno, this device requires an FTDI cable or ISP programmer). Currently I am working to find an alternate method to loading sketches onto the board.   That aside, I

Three Announcements

Hello all, it's been some time since my last post here. Been kinda busy over the past few months so I been mainly lurking. Anyways, I have a couple of important(ish) announcements. First off, I now have a new website. Well not really a new website but really a new domain for my old one. It can be found at http://blog.csmedia.x10host.com. The same usual stuff can be found there such as my posts from here, project pages, etc. I also now have a professional portfolio at http://csmedia.x10host.co

Microsoft Home Use Program

Time for some random babbling about Microsoft Office and the Home Use Program. Just got Office 2016 for really cheep. Not just the basic set either, the entire thing. Well, except Project and Visio. And it was only $9.95 Project and Visio are extra $10 charges each. (so to truly have everything I would need $30) Eh, I have older versions of those so no need to upgrade yet. The entire installation was automated too, no need to enter a product key or anything else. I didn't even know that

American Traffic Props - Version 1

I'm proud to release today the first version of the American Traffic Props for LEGO Worlds. This pack contains many props including traffic lights, crosswalks, intersections, and more! These props are in the LXFML format and should be installed in the same way as other models. If you are new to adding LDD models to LEGO Worlds, please read this thread for instructions: http://steamcommunity.com/app/332310/discussions/5/594820473983733928/. More information on all the props included as well as do

Sunday Special: Power Poles!

Good day all! Just got done with a 17 hour power outage today after a huge wind storm passed through the area. That being said, I got a bit bored and decided to mess around in LDD. I made some power poles for LEGO Worlds that come in both 2-line and 3-line variants. There are also variants of whether the pole has a transformer or not. Do be aware that these models don't include power lines so you will have to build them yourself. If anyone wants to see more different types of poles let me know a

American Traffic Props Update: August 28th, 2015

Since it's the end of the week, I would like to share some more screenshots of some of the new content coming soon. Model ripping has slowed down a bit as for the noesis script that Sluicer is working on will most likely be a better alternative for model ripping once the script supports textures so I plan on waiting until the update is available. As for the traffic props, many new road tiles as well as some other props have been added. Version 1 of the American Traffic Props package will

Coming Soon: American Traffic Props for LEGO Worlds

Good evening from the smoke filled state of Washington, This weekend, I decided to take a break from model ripping to work on a new project, that project is to add American-style traffic props and road pieces to LEGO Worlds. I plan to add many things including freeway pieces, traffic control props, parking pieces, and more. While this project will likely grow quite large, I still plan to continue model ripping from LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga. Here's a preview of just some of the content

LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga and the GHG

If you have ever have attempted to mod LEGO: Star Wars The Complete Saga, you may have discovered that the games characters don't have any texture files. Unfortunately, the textures were embedded in the GHG model files themselves. A quick look at the STORMTROOPER_PC.GHG file confirms these suspicions. Sure enough, after the 30 byte header of the GHG file, the header of the first texture file (DirectDraw Surface) begins with its image data following afterwards. Using a hex editor, it is possibl

Model Ripping Update: August 12th, 2015

Hello all, Since my last post four more models have been ripped. Much to my surprise, these models came in many more pieces than I expected. I was also surprised to find the toll that ripping has already taken on my hard drive, despite the low number of characters that have been ripped, my folder where the rips are stored already totals 625 MB. It seems that the number of textures used in the cantina are to blame which each texture costing about 1-4 MB. There is also an issue with the battle dr

Welcome!

Welcome to my new blog! If you haven't read the description of my blog, I will be posting stuff about mods I am working on as well as other things like reverse engineering, LEGO Worlds, etc. Currently, as already shown by my post on the forum, I am working on ripping minifigs from LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga. So far I only have two minifigs ripped and I have a long way to go. My hope for these rips is to eventually use them in LEGO Worlds as a mod (assuming that no Star Wars content is inc
