This is something that I was putting together in the last couple of weeks, when all that crazy was coming through the mail and we all put some sort of weight on our keyboard to keep logged in ( I used a gyroscope on my down key and ran into the corner of my Nimbus Rock )
This isn’t exact, and there would be some iterations in between, such as when you have all level 1 gear except for the level 2 hat. I submit to you though, Lego Universe Inventor class levels 1-10:
There is arguably more levels with Dr. Overbuild’s hat on, using the vailant etc, and pretty sure I took a picture of that or had one taken in ‘max’ gear.
This short video sums up much of the absurdity of the final days. All of these players have put weights on their directional keys to keep rotating in place while they were away from their computers. I’m not judging, did the same thing, but I was on my property. To see these figs in the craziest gear ever just rotating in spot cracked me up.
Here’s the infamous lineup in Red Blocks. It was amazingly civilized considering, never seen anything like it. Special nods should go to Yhnmko1 (yipyip) for supervising the lineup for hours it seems, making sure that everything was fair and even. The lineup was this long for the whole time I saw it and it was moving at a pretty fast clip.
I’ve posted a gallery of screen shots from the last night: http://imgur.com/a/I3Zjt/embed
I’ll get them on flickr and other places as well eventually. All image links open in a new window.
Check em all out but here’s a few that I should make note of:
I think this is the Red Blocks party instance of Nimbus, but most everywhwere had crazy spawns that day. There were dragons on every roof and very dangerous cars that could freeze you.
Any guesses where this is?
I could have ran around in this suit for *weeks*
Closeup of the Mythran. He would keep changing his outfit every couple of minutes, perched on his mailbox
This was in the last hour of the game, first glowy blue Mythran I’d ever seen in game
One of the instances I popped into in the last 5 minutes
Final screenshot of the game
Here is the camera in action:
As Sam pointed out, everyone can see the flash but not sure how wide the area effect of that is. At this point the camera had already bumped a couple of people offline and it had messed up my chat so it wouldn’t scroll anymore.
Here’s the picture that Shival took, but it looks like it’s from my perspective:
Does that mean that each person got their own unique identifier url that showed the picture from their pov?
In the last minutes of the game? I was asked that by a few players, what do you want to do? Some chose to go to their properties, some in a peaceful area in AG. I was very much kicking around going down on a prop but knew that I had to be in Nimbus with friends.
I was in level 3 Inventor gear with Overbuild shoulderpads, Summoner staff and Rusty Steele’s wrench, bringing together all three Asssembly classes together in a nice epic way I felt. Final team was MiniTheFig, SamuraiMaster and White. Final words were ‘Play Well my friends.’
Have you turned the launcher back on yet? Of course you have.
LEGO® Universe is now closed
LEGO Universe is now closed. We realize how sad this is for many players, but the game is no longer available to play.
Thanks to everyone who helped fill LEGO Universe with fun and imagination over the past year. We couldn’t have asked for a more amazing community of players to share this adventure.
So on behalf of the LEGO Group, from the bottom of our bricks, thank you for playing.
Here is a video I took of the Red Blocks party on closing night. It was in a very packed instance and the Mythrans were great at pulling people in. I think I was pulled 3 times that night(1), very weird, never had that happen before. Excuse the choppy camera, I was starting to lag heavy with fraps going and all the spawn, not to mention I was using a trackpad at the time as well. I really like the epaulettes, they are like Mosaic Jester, but earth tone and went quite nice with the Inventor suit. Any idea what they were?
If you were on last night and you did not get to this instance, this was where all that mail was coming from. I’ll post pics and video soon, though I’m sure some is already up, of the ~lineup~… it was pretty amazing. The player community was for the most part just great, forming.an.orderly.lineup. to talk to a Mythran perched on a mailbox. That isn’t in this video, the lineup happened sometime after. I think there might have been 4 Mythrans at one point, making spawn stuff and filling requests. Hats off blue guys, you really put on a great End of the Universe show.
This is an interesting momento from SamuraiMaster. In the last 15 minutes ( I still want to type hive tean ) of the game, Shival sent these buggy cameras directly to our backpacks ( thank goodness I had a slot open after that loot flood )
He took a picture while we were on White’s prop and I thought that was it, game over early. It did end bugging my chat and crashing everyone else, and when I left the prop it crashed my client so I was scrambling in the last 10 minutes of the game to regroup with my team in the right instance of Nimbus, tripping over friends along the way.
Anyways, you can see the crazy quality of picture it takes. I took a short video of the camera in action and will get that up sometime, but you double click on the camera in your backpack and it automagically uploads the picture to imgur.com, pretty neat.
So this picture is really the last minute of the game, lights went out maybe 20 seconds later. I think it’s really fitting in it’s strange, buggy quality and I was right where I wanted to be, in Nimbus with friends.
Thanks Sam for sharing this 🙂
