The UNE - A "How-To" Guide
Some guidelines.
About this creation
First Off
The UNE, as I've said before to no avail, is a THEME. This means there are certain criteria a creation must fit in order to be considered a UNE creation.

1) Colors




This is a big one. For something to be considered as a UNE build, it must have a base color of Gray. Any color of gray will do. Any and all highlights must be in some shade of Red. Details, weapons, and other assorted greebling shall be colored Black. On a related note, weapons should also have a red stripe in there somewhere. Any trans pieces will be Transparent Yellow

2) Technology
The UNE use walkers, tanks, hover vehicles, hardsuits, whatever may suit your fancy. HOWEVER. Should you use plasma technology in your creation, it is to be experimental only. The UNE use ballistic technology for weapons. Shields are only equipped on larger starships, and are not of the usual SW variety. Instead, shields work like a reverse rail gun. (oh, another things, no MACs) Sensors detect an incoming projectile, and fire a magnetic pulse to either slow it to the point of minimal damage or diffuse plasma.

3) Soldiers


Well, here I have to be lenient. I user LoM bodies, gray helmets, backpacks, and brick-built weapons, but not everyone has the pieces for that. Try to make them look armored enough, ok?

I hope this helps a bit.

Quoting Colin Small is a TFOL >>> You're luck I caught this in my activity feed. I never really look at my old builds' comments. Honestly, I suggest you build with whatever you think looks best with the grey and red. I've been building all black guns, all grey guns, whatever. If you thinks something looks better than trans yellow, go for it.

So, you say any trans peices should be trans. yellow. Does that mean /ALL/ trans pieces /need/ to be trans yellow? Also, the "Weapons need to have a red stripe", does that include weapons on ships where there is barely or no room for a red stripe?

Quoting Matt The Backward One can you include what color an interior of a building should be?
Oh lord.... Think of it like today. Buildings are pretty much any color. Admittedly on new worlds it would look a lot more moon-base-y but on well established colonies it would be like a city of today with a few fancier devices.

That and I have a lot more burgandy then red :P Oh, and do the Space Police torsos work? I think they work, cuz they are armored.. and they have red!

Interesting how to guide. It's nice to see you educating the masses on the proper way to build UNE stuff. I've gotta ask though, since no Macs are allowed, than are UNE computers only allowed to have Windows? (kidding) =P

quick question: can I use trans-red? the trans-red is used to warn people to get away from the intake and the exhaust.

Cool, this was real helpful! After much fighting and complaining, we both agreed on joining the U.N.E. for it's great builders, one of it's generals, Matt the backwards one, a really good friend, and the colors and types of troops, vehicles, hardsuits, etc. don't limit the quality of the creations we can make. We hope to put up a U.N.E. MOC real soon! ~Legoz R Us~

great job here john. i'm working on an MBT with the 4 track design like on a mammoth tank (Command & Conquer). each track can rotate and bend individually. and i plan for a red stripe down the center, with clear red spots (cuz i have like -3 clear yellow pieces.) thanks for solidifying a color scheme man. And by the way, i have to use SP 3 bodies, and DA bodies cause i only have 1 LOM body. is that alright? Again, thanks for the how to man.
