Cargo Standard

Postby SpaceDemon » Tue Aug 03, 2010 6:03 pm

There have been many lego standards produced, but i was wondering if there was a lego cargo standard for spaceships and spacestations. If there isn't why dont we have a go at producing one, maybe have a competition to see who can produce the best cargo standard.

Something like that, or some sort of crate that cargo can be put into and transported.

I remember seeing some discussion of moonbase-standard containers. I'm not sure where you can find that info now, though.

I agree, a cargo standard would be awesome.

Actually, might be a side topic, but is there any chance one of the first articles we post here could be about the existing build standards? Maybe even just a google spreadsheet would do. Just some sort of outline for the standards for quick reference.

I like the contest idea too. That would make a good first contest for the new forums!

What kind of criteria should a cargo standard meet? Avalibility of parts might be a useful one so that as many people as possible can use it.

Good point. So maybe a listing of basic parts to be used, as well as a generic size (or a couple, like small-med-big), and some sort of generic way to attach them would be good too. IE: 1x2 mod plate w/rod, 1x2 brick w/pin hole, etc...

Im not sure that saying, you must have these parts is a good idea, as it limits what can be created, also a common part for someone could be a rare part for someone else....
