Hi Elliott, This is a great breakdown and very generous in sharing your process and insights, you came a long way from the vending machine days!
Are you planning on releasing the UE4 project to the public? Or only builds? I'd love to play around with it in the editor if possible!
New features include:
- New brick assortment
- Support for train elements
- Animated trains
- Backgrounds in view mode

- Minifigs and decorated bricks

- Ldraw exporter
- New “Check Price” button
- Mac version runs on Intel Macs
With LEGO Digital Designer MINDSTORMS mode you have access to hundreds of virtual LEGO MINDSTORMS and Technic elements. You can design your next robot model from scratch, or document your creation and share on the NXT Log!
BUILD FREELY OR REBUILD
You may build using a wide array of MINSTORMS and Technic elements, or choose to filter your element choices to a specific LEGO set. LDD counts the amount of pieces available to you so that you can challenge yourself to redesign a set!
LEGO Digital Designer MINDSTORMS mode includes all of the MINDSTORMS elements that you need, including a virtual NXT Intelligent Brick. Wires are color-coded so that your plans may be clear to all. (NOTE: virtual brick is for construction only, and does currently not contain or emulate NXT software.)
SHARE WITH THE WORLD
When you are finished with your amazing creation, you can upload your LEGO Digital Designer file to the NXTLog. Other LEGO MINDSTORMSfans around the world will have access to your instructions to build your cool robot! You can also read comments and feedback. Join the community and share your designs!
