LOM: Shipwrecked Part 1

Filberth and Stefan had left on a ship with 8 others. Their destination was Frost-Claw; after hearing of the exotic goods available there, they had both decided to make the voyage. With Filberth were 3 other members of the Dark Valley Clan, hoping to help Filberth procure some goods for the King. Meanwhile, Stefan was alone; none of the other Deer Clan members would accompany him. Elisa had disappeared the previous week, and the rest of the clan was out searching for her.

A storm was brewing. Filberth wondered if the dark clouds passing overhead were a bad omen, but he shrugged off the thought. The ship was safe; nothing would happen. He looked up at the clouds again, and nearly fell over when a huge wave came to hit the ship.

LOM: Shipwrecked Part 2 (Main)

Filberth watched as the others waded toward the shore. It was fortunate that they were able to escape on the ship's rowboat before the ship was destroyed. They had managed to reach the island quickly. However, the island appeared to be deserted. And as he surveyed the people around him, he noticed that now there were only 8 others....
______________________________________________


This was a pretty quick pair of builds for a MBC and to bring Stefan and Filberth back. I'm going to have to take a break from their story again, though, since my main storyline needs to be finished up soon.

The first build was my favorite of the two. The ship was designed around the use of the saddle piece, which I'm pretty satisfied with.

Of course, the main part of the build was the function. It's based around a few gears that cause 2 rows of technic beams to rotate. These beams hit the net (which the water pieces are attached to) and cause the water to move up and down. It took quite a few tries to get it to work properly, but I'm pretty happy with the result. Be sure to watch the video of the working waves!

The second build was also fun; it was a test in water shading (trans light blue under trans clear really works well), sand texturing, and rowboat design. The rowboat was tough to get right, but I like it.
A closer look at the sand texturing in the second build:

I love it, great add to the net technique, making it move like that, great job!

Quoting Kai Bernstein Love the microscale ship. Love the landscaping. Love the water technique. Not feeling the rowboat as much, but this is still a super surprising 5/5 for what it is.
Wait, seriously? It may not have any flaws, but I still don't like this MOC much :P

Wow , that's extremely cool and clever! I don't think I've seen working Lego waves before. Great job! :-))

Quoting Hildigrim Took How did you make that minifig sized boat?
It was all designed around the bench connection - the benches are attached using 1x2 brackets connected to the side tiles. After that, I used a bit of SNOT and hinges to attach the rest of the stuff. Some parts in the front (top layer) are unconnected, but it could easily be connected without changing the look too much. Overall, the boat was mildly complex, but after winning the REC I've gotten a lot better at figuring out complex techniques.

Those moving waves, brilliant technique. The water coloring in the first model is really cool, nice work on those builds!

This build oozes creativity XD The water looks very good and now I really wish I could have got flickr to work so I could see that video :P My computer was too slow to load it today.

Quoting Gilbert Despathens I would be a little more impressed by the function if the mechanism didn't seem to be so sticky, but the movement looked fairly realistic from what I've seen of the ocean in movies and the like, so I'm still impressed. Both builds are also very attractive from an aesthetic standpoint, and the microscale ship is very artfully done. All considered, I would have given this a 4 without qualms.
Thanks! I think it probably would have worked better if I had done the border a bit differently - I believe the problem was that the plates and net kept hitting the tiles, and so the border would explode fairly often (I had to trim the video a lot because of that). I'm not entirely sure I agree with the 4 (since my catapult scene was a 3 when Asad judged it and I loved that MOC), but thanks ;)

Seems kind of unfair to be starting on the rank requirements before the Ranks are released... :P But whatever. Lovely landscaping, and the micro ship is great. I'd be more impressed with the wave technique if I hadn't seen it before, but it still looks good.

Where have you seen the technique before?

You linked to the technique in the cow tavern group some time ago, I think. The technique wasn't exactly the same (your version is an improvement), but the net idea was there, which really is the main part of the technique.

Great idea with the waves and saddle! I probably would have given it a high three for the techniques, and textures, but those are petty awesome! I shall look forward to more builds from you!

Amazing work, Halhi! Not only is the technique clever but the ship and rowboat are well done too.

The use of the saddle piece is incredible, but those waves bring it up to a whole new level of reality. Funny, I was fooling around with nets and studs the other day, but I never thought of waves... Great work!

Quoting Packer 221 Boy that net is genius! I'd love to see a windstorms or power functions motor hooked up to that thing (hint, hint) ;)
I tried connecting a PF motor to it, but the technique has a tendency to explode (at least with the border - it would probably work better with a different border) so it's best to be able to control it by hand ;)

Quoting Armon Russ Despite the cliche shipwreck story . . . nice work. :P That micro ship is awesome. Now I need to make some. :P And cool little scene with the rowboat. Great colors and landscape, and nice shaping. Here are your 3 points! ;P
Yay! I really should go for higher standards in my future speedbuilds, here I was just going for the 3 so that I could get that rank...Oh, and I'll get around to rewriting this story later...

Lol, it seems like nobody ever reads the descriptions, so I figured I might as well make the link obvious.
