Revisiting Some Old LEGO Universe Racecars
A while ago, I uploaded some renders I'd made of old LEGO Universe chassis racecars to the Gallery. Skilltwiner asked if I had any more, so I decided to go through my old models folder and dig up whatever I could find.
About this creation
(Main photo) This is the Laterizio GTO, one of my favorite LU chassis racecars. I named it after the Italian word for Brick, because I think it came out looking kind of like an Italian racecar.



This is my Sting Raycer. It's based on the 1963 Corvette Stingray. For a long time, it was my character's personal racecar, and, after tweaking the trunk module, I've decided it's time for Brick to start using this car as his personal ride again. Time to pull it out from under the tarp.



I call this car 1Up. It is the result of some puttering around I did in LDD many years ago. It was based on the default color scheme LDD gives you, red bricks and black paint tool. I think it's the only LU racer I've built with an 8-wide bumper. Looks kind of like an f1 car now that I look at it.



Here's all the cars in the .lxf, clearly labeled.

1. Porsche 911
This was another attempt at building a real car on the LEGO Universe chassis. It's far too bulky for my liking.

2. Barbossa's Racecar
I built this racecar for Barbossa9000 on the Gallery. He specified the color scheme (green and black) and I got creative freedom over the rest of the car. I decided to go for a hard-edged, angular look, and was careful to avoid any curved bricks.

3. 1Up

4. Quicksilver Racer
This is an LU chassis car based on the old Drome Racers theme. It's one of my favorites, though the engine does stick up a little too high in my opinion.

5. Paintball Racer
This is an Assembly faction themed one, and Brick used this as his personal racecar for a while.

6. Max's Racecar
I built this for Max5383 on the Gallery. I built it in his building colors, black and earth red. I tried to give it a TRON: Legacy inspired look since we were both fans of that show.

7. Laterizio GTO

8. Sting Raycer

9. Lowered Chassis
This is something I did much later, just sort of fiddling around. The minifigure always sits so high in the chassis that it's hard to make really low slung cars without the minifigure sitting way too high. this was an attempt to fix this, and it's compatible with most (but not all) of the cars here.

Thanks for reading! I will probably be posting this on the Gallery under my Mistermursten account, and possibly on Brick Lab.

Quoting Tranquil Nova Man this is a lot of renders. :P I love them though. That atmospheric scattering really adds a feeling to the render that makes it feel very down to earth and and almost tangible. The cars are all awesome too. :P I remember most of them, actually. Do you have any of these built with real bricks? I forget... -Snow
I wanted to fill up all the slots on the Gallery :p Thanks! I don't really like working with volumetrics since they're SO resource intensive, but when it formed those sunbeams I knew I had to do it :P I thought it looked kind of like a mix of morning mist and dusty garage. None of the cars I rendered were built in real brick, but the Paintball Racer, Max's Racecar, the Quicksilver Racer, the Porsche 911, and Boss' Racecar were all real brick originally.

Quoting wgrubbs aka Sombreroman Ok. That's the one I use too and my uploaded image quality isn't so good either. I think it might work better with the new one. I'll have to try that on my Minecraft PC too. :P Oh, and congrats on making the front page! :D
Wait, when did I make the front page?? :P *looks* WHOA! Pip made it too :P

Quoting wgrubbs aka Sombreroman Brick, did you use the classic uploader or the new fancy one? I think that may have something to do with the image quality.
I used the classic one, because the new one uses Java and I'm not installing java just to upload pictures :p Though, I guess I could do it on my laptop since I have java on that for minecraft..

Quoting Nico Bak318 Yes! Great! A bit of your trademark, a more than super car. The moment I see this car I know it's you. Thanks for sharing. The way to upload is a bit different than we used to know but I thnk we will get the hang of it.
I do love building cars :P Thanks for the comment! And yeah, I'm glad I haven't lost contact with all my friends from the Gallery. This place certainly has potential..
