Yep. I've used it. It has "Digital Designer Extended" instead of "Lego Universe" and it has SW helmets (storm, clone, scout, pilot, vader) and the clone wars blaster and a couple other cool things (like baseplates). :lol:

Extended was always an option man, you just needed to know how to fully unlock it.

No, you'll have to look them up somewhere else...

How? I know that there was a LU version for 3.0, an i thought the "extended version" was the "LU version".

Nope, you had to go into "preferences" or something, and add a line that was somewhere along the lines of "theme = extended".

Exactly, I've been using extended mode for quite some time now.

So, is there any way to at least get an ass of bricks you used, or anything, so you could go to pick a brick and get them? Because I really don't want to just have to guess at the number and types of bricks in a really big modal and try to order them...

I believe making an HTML file for instructions gives you a parts list... but make sure you used the regular Creator mode.

Its high time that LEGO releases a new version of LDD. There are so many new themes that have come out and it makes the minifig category seem "unfulfilled". I wouldn't mind seeing some old torsos and faces added in as well. mCAD and the other LEGO computer things have the old stuff, but none of the new.

Anyone agree?

LDD seems to have enough parts for most uses, but one final parts update would be nice. Likeliness of this ever happening is >1%, considering LDD only ever existed for Lego Factory/Design by Me. If it wasn't for the increased user friendliness over MLCAD and other programs, it'd be doubtful anyone here would ever use it.

True, true. Even still, I'd like more pieces. Guess that's life for you.
