The chess game in Crowned Heads now has a new and upgraded opponent.

That's the standing skeleton fitted into an Arachnos suit of armor, and the Kama weapon on a CoT torch stick.

Figured out how to make a grand piano from fellow user BBBadger!

 

 

  • Several Black "D"s (from Alphabet)
  • Several Black "I"s
  • Several Black Hyphens
  • One Black "7"
  • One Black "1"
  • Two "Modern Art" (for white keys)
  • Thirty-Three "Knife 1"s (for black keys)
  • Three "Small Iron Fence Poles"
  • One "Carnival Stool"

Does anyone have a more detailed explanation/pictures of how to put this together? I'd love to set one up in my base, but I am having a beast of a time figuring out how this list of items turns into a piano. Alternately, willing to hand over base editing privileges if anyone is willing to put one together for me!

 

Update: It ain't too pretty, but between me and a friend, we did get something that at least functionally resembles a grand piano in my base. Woo!

Is there a way to make an easy city skyline? It's only meant to be viewed from a distance on a penthouse suite or roofttop of that building.

Anyone have any ideas or suggestions for a pagoda type roof?  I have an all ninja themed SG that I long neglected that I have recently picked up on again.   I can get the building done easy - it is that curved pagoda roof that is frustrating me.  I tried doing a combo with the chalet roofs and roman awnings, but it does not look right. 

 

Any suggestions?

I don't know how much effort you are willing to put into it, but if you were so inclined, you could use tintable letter "I" and match it to the color of the rest of your roof, and stack and layer them in a position where they overlap and fan out away from a single point.  It would be imperfect, and depending upon size, take a fair number of pieces.  IDK if you are interested in placing that many.  At least once you got your color right, subsequent pieces would be the same color.

Plasma, you’ll want to go see Squidget’s base on Everlasting; I think the code is GHOST-1471, but I’m sure you could search in my channel and find it , or look on the yellow pages directory. Pretty sure she’d be happy to show you and tell how she made her pagoda.

Sure its been done already, I've seen Dacy has something similar in her arcade, but damn this bike looks good. (2 tires, 2 Mek  Men Laser Arm, 1 Mek Men Leg part, 1 Mek Men Chest, 1 Mek Men Shoulder Pad 1, 1 Wall Light, and 1 Olympic Hammer Curl Bar.🔥

I've seen a few grand pianos made of alphabet letters, but here's my upright: three mission-style counters overlapped with each other, some short wall pieces to cover the flickering, a few stair rail posts, and a keyboard made presumably the same way as the grands I've seen out of modern picture frames and knife handles.
