Just a heads up that Union Micro will be moving to vBulletin in the near future so the site may be offline for an extended period of time.
All generation 2 elevator parts have been updated to 2.5.1 – this includes shells. This release is mainly a bugfix release but it has a couple of small features that straddle the line between a fix and a feature. The scripts have also been optimized and should perform slightly better than before, although you probably won’t notice a difference! Rez your original shipping crate or use our redelivery station at our customer service desk to get your updates.
Union Micro is now on Twitter! Click here to check us out or you can also click the little Twitter icon in the website footer. This is where I will post little snippets of information that is not quite important enough to post here on the website. Once I get things rolling it should be a great behind-the-scenes look at what goes on at Union Micro!
Drop by our main store in Lionheart and find the four gifts placed throughout the store! These gift boxes are red and white with gray ribbon and are hard to miss! Each gift contains a different Union Micro item for you to enjoy – just touch the gift to receive what’s inside.
Happy holidays from all of us at Union Micro!
Get ’em while they’re hot! FIVE new Gen2 elevator shells are now in our vendors! You can choose from four new cars as well as one new set of doors!
The script packages have been updated to 2.5.0 with some bug fixes and a new automatic lighting feature that is used in the new cars.
Also, there’s an updated affiliate kit with updated vendors and Gen2 holo display.
As always – rez your elevator shipping crates to get your updates.
More images after the break!
I may be unavailable for the next few days due to hurricane Bill blowing through here in the next couple of hours. Last time we had a hurricane of this size (“only” a category 1) I had no power for almost a week. If you need technical support of any kind please contact other members of staff via the online indicators at Union Micro in Lionheart. Thanks!
Update: That was a sad excuse for a hurricane! It blew right by and I lost power for a total of 3 seconds. Looks like I’m in the clear!
Since I forgot to post this a few days ago, I’ve completed a video that shows you the basics of installing a generation 2 elevator system.
We’ve released an elevator update to all elevator parts. The script package has been updated to 2.4.0 which brings numerous bug fixes to the elevator logic to help it deal with those pesky “button pushers”, a new centralized install feature as well as an auto install, and a verbose setting that will allow you to shut those chatty elevator parts up once and for all!
Simply rez your original shipping crates to check for updates. If you’ve deleted those then you can head to Union Micro and request a new copy from the redelivery station as long as you bought your elevator in-world. For purchases made on XStreet you will have to IM Stylez Gomez for an update if you no longer have your crates.
We’re pleased to announce that our sister site, Brick Junkies, is now open! Brick Junkies is a community site aimed at LEGO® fans from around the world.
If you’re a LEGO fan, don’t hesitate to sign-up and start posting about your creations and uploading images to our gallery!
We’ve cleaned up the forum a bit and deleted a lot of accounts that were spamming or inactive/possible spammers. If you’ve been mistakenly deleted, please re-register.
We’ve also added a question to the registration process to weed out the spam bots that are smart enough to get around the captcha. Since the captcha has been pretty much useless we greatly decreased its difficulty to figure out instead of removing it completely.
On another note, you’ll see that it’s been quiet around here lately. I’ve been on a bit of a Second Life vacation in the last couple months so current projects and updates are temporarily on hold. I expect to be back in the swing of things soon though as I’m getting some creativity urges lately, I’m just too lazy to act on them at the moment!
