Datsville is a Lego-inspired city started in 1999 by users of LUGNET using the LDraw suite of CAD software. The goal of this project is to re-license models using a modern, open license, as well as to actively manage old and new submissions.
Since this project is brand new, the main things that need to be done at this moment are:
- Get permission to relicense models from the original model authors.
- Determine what (if any) organizational steps need to be taken to get models in a state where they are ready to render into new scenes, animations and so forth.
Once that is completed hopefully we can develop some ready-to-use tools for people to develop the scenes they want.
The preferred licenses are:
- CC BY-SA 4.0 or later for artistic content (LDraw models, rendered images, etc.)
New submissions are of course always welcome! :)
- More instructions are at Instructions.
- The current "to do" list is at To Do List.
- Some useful links are at Links.
- For a list of releases see Old Releases.
- Detailed maps of Datsville can be found at Model Maps and Street Maps.
- A table of models and contributors can be found at Model Table.
- A high resolution isometric render of Datsville can be found at High Resolution Render.
- Additional documentation can be found within the repository itself, in the form of an MS Excel workbook called "datsville_checklist.xlsx".
