Please forgive me for making a fuss, but I need to say this.
For those of you who do not know; I am an individual diagnosed with a variation of Muscular Dystrophy. A disease that causes me to gradually lose muscle strength/use over time. I’m already confined to a wheelchair and require CONSTANT assistance 24/7. Lego has always had my interest because it was a way to express myself creatively. I used to build using actual Lego parts, I reached a point where I no longer could physically interact with them. I played the Lego games, I can barely hold a controller let alone use it. LDD became my go-to method of Lego interaction, so I take this personally. THIS to me, isn’t just a “Business Decision”, it’s an unfair assault against DISABLED Lego fans.
Why should I have to go install a program that:
A- has an interface that is (QUITE HONESTLY) unfriendly to newcomers.
B- isn’t even run by Lego.
Lego Worlds came out just last year, and has compatibility with LDD. LDD was used to create The Lego Movie assets. LDD was used to construct elements for the Minifigures Online game. Images from LDD are allowed to be posted on Lego.com in the galleries. LDD is even used to create new sets on Lego Ideas! AND YOU WANT TO LIMIT THAT!?
If it’s a matter of money, I’m willing to put up with buying the program. But don’t alienate it’s users!
Somebody needs to start a movement to get Lego to change their minds about this.
