LEGO Digital Designer no more!

Just got back in and seen the news on various LUG sites about an update that was posted earlier today on the LEGO Ambassador Network concerning LDD the LEGO in house digital designer. This is bad news for so many LEGO fans including yours truly as I use it a lot, basically the below statement is explaining LEGO is no longer going to be supporting LDD, that means no bug fixes and no more updates. That means most of us will now need to learn LDraw which most say is better anyway.

Here is the announcement, please tell us your thoughts on this below:

“Good Afternoon everyone, I’ve just touched base with one of our Digital Product Specialists within the Consumer Services team. A business decision has been made to no longer allocate resources towards the LDD program / initiative.

“For now, the program will continue to be offered to anyone interested in utilizing it but please do not expect any updates regarding functionality, the adding of new LEGO elements or glitch fixes. We have decided to pursue other digital experiences.

“Although this may not be the answer you were hoping for, I hope this information will be of use to your RLUG members. Thank you for your time and continued support for the LEGO Brand and hobby.”
