Hehe, some LU updates for next week. :-)

| Nov 5, 2010
Anybody that is playing LU! Here is an update on what will come next week to LU.

- A new maintenance window.
- 60 new models
- A new contest!
- 2 new worlds (not sure)

In the night between Monday and Tuesday, the LU game will be unavailable for a few hours for each server.
This is because of a new update that will come with the new models ( more information below ), fixes for all the glitches, and more good stuff. :D

Here are the exact times for the 3 universes:

Overbuild Universe (US) : 3 – 5 AM Tuesday EST.
Storm Universe (UK) : 22.00 Monday – 00.00 Tuesday GMT.
Exeter Universum (DE) : 23.00 Monday – 01.00 Tuesday CET.
Are you thinking about doing some travel during the holiday season? Next week LU will have over 60 exciting new models – enough to build your own airport!

For the next two months, Autumn Helix in Brick Annex will be selling the Airport models instead of the Fort models. If you do not have the Fort models, you may want to stock up now – they won’t return until the New Year. =D

The new Airport models include everything you would find at an airport – airplanes, helicopters, fuel trucks, even a control tower!

We will also be hosting weekly contests with prizes from the Airport set and the first contest starts today! Read the "LEGO Universe Photography Contest" information below and learn how you can win a Helicopter model for your property.

Keep checking Universe.LEGO.com for more information on the latest updates to LEGO Universe!
This blog will keep you updated on this as well. :D

We heard of Ekingsley, the team leader of the A-team and developer of Moonbase, that probably Moonbase will be released next week (Tuesday). If moonbase comes, then Starbase will come also.

However, no promise on that, the Maelstrom can always make problems. It is possible that it gets delayed.
See you in the Universe

Airport models, awesome! I could probably check in the LU folder to see the models if they put them in LDD files, well when they will have update the game.
