Introducing: New JANG City - the LEGO layout :)


In my last move update I promised a couple of major surprises to come.  With the christening of this new city, the first shocker is revealed!
Some viewers will love the vibrancy & life this new decision immediately brings to the table (pun intended).  Some will revolt and say I am the worst person in the known universe for the crime I have committed.  It's all good to me :)  The goal remains to fill up this entire space with a vast expanse of custom creations to include all of the stuff I've promised countless times in the past, but for now we get to enjoy a lot less empty space than ever before.

I still need to put out my motorcycles, bicycles, and pedestrians after building new sidewalks.  The elevated railway remains to be put in.  Water & land need to be better differentiated and/or blended, the Minecraft stuff needs to go in and, well, the entire remainder of the (part of a) city needs to be built. 

There's much to be done and nothing is finalized in any way, but my motivation & excitement levels are at record highs and the new setup makes it easier than ever to make rapid, visible progress.  Follow along as questions get answered, empty spaces get filled in, and skylines rise in New JANG City!

  2. I'm one of those people whit mixed feelings about this. It looks good. Don't get me wrong. But I enjoyed how different your city was from all the other folks online with LEGO cities. Yours was fully custom. Oh well, like I said, it looks good. I'll get used to it. Can't wait for an indepth tour like the old days! Keep up the great work!

    1. That is exactly how i feel about this! His city wasn't just a mix of the modular buildings and the creator houses it was ALL custom but i will still be watching and likeing it.

    2. I read your post Jang and I stand by what I wrote. It's all good, I know you anticipated feelings like mine. I just figured I'd share how I felt. Ultimately, it's your choice anyway. You can do what you want and we'll still watch. :)

  3. Jang, your city is awesome, although do you plan on with time having everything customized, that is swaping out official sets to replace with your own custom eventually on respective lots? Sincerely, LhD

  4. this makes me really sad i watched you because you were the one for the most part that did not do this. now you are doing this and it depress's me. i know you dont really care but heres my opinion.
    the cars and trucks i dont mind but the swamp police and the creator houses just threw me over the edge.
    all in all though i will continue to stay loyal to you you do have many awesome builds and you inspire me thanks

  6. I Personally have mixed feelings because some parts of the non custom stuff such as the demolition and modular buildings look great in your city, but the part I personally dislike of your decision is you put in the swamp police which doesn't really fit in (what I feel). I hope you will make your own custom train station and and not phase in the modern lego city fire department stuff because the color scheme doesn't fit well (with your own). I wish you luck on your move and I hope you you continue making custom stuff because it is what I enjoy seeing from you. I have many custom things in my own layout and lots of what I have built is inspired by you. Thank you for just choosing to do what you are doing and I hope this message means something to you because I know viewers opinions usually don't matter to you in your custom ( now semi custom) city.

  7. I would be ok with it if you did the modular building and some other stuff in a corner but not on the whole thing the way I see it is the custom stuff was to inspire us all to build stuff ourselves just saying my opinion

  8. That's a good idea because you kind of have it like the non custom city that would be taken apart in time.

  9. Jang i love the new city. But is the offical set just for until down the line until you make it custom and just my opinion the swamp sets look weird in the city, love your work and keep building

  10. I actually have a question... In the past you have always liked the buildings with the closed in backs the best so they don't look like the entire back portion is cutoff. Do you think you'll keep the buildings open or closed. Or on the ones with no opening a nd closing doll house feel do you think there is a chance you will fill it in? But I do like the fact you are including the actual sets as well... Thank you

  12. Is it just me, or is this layout smaller than your old one? I'd like to see some more tables go in, and perhaps more of the harbor?

    ReplyDelete

    1. It's a good deal larger as shown & detailed in the previous videos, with already a very significantly larger harbor area.

  13. Jang in that gap in the middle it'll be a great idea if you put that bridge that many people had been wanting... It just gives the city more life. I guess if you did you would put the Tower Bridge.

  14. I still think ur modulars should go in ur custom city

    ReplyDelete
  15. Since I began following you I secretly have been hoping for this step. Especially the modular building series goes so well with your city! I always thought it was a shame that you didn't include these sets just because they are offical.

    1. Even though they look great I think it doesn't match his building style.

  16. What did you use as support for your city? Are they folding tables??
