Welcome LEGO Universe fans! There was so much brilliance in LEGO's first MMOG, sadly lost now that it has been taken offline, but in the final week, I made this printscreening slideshow, starting from the creation of a new character to the moment it was taken offline. It's similar to video projects others have done, except with stills, so you can view at your own pace, make quality cropped versions of interesting parts, etc.
To produce it quickly I used file names as captions, often humorous or explanatory, and I turned it into a zipped folder with all the images to download. It's designed to be viewed with Windows Preview so you can read the 'captions' in the title bar.
I ended up with over 2,000 screenshots, many of them from near the start taken with the Mythran-gift jetpack for views normally impossible.
Since the full PNG-format folder is so massive, I also made a short version with half that number, and finally JPG versions of both long and short, so you choose which type to download based on your system's limitations. The JPGs are decent quality, so unless you want to zoom in for detail I'd go with that. (Yay for free mass image converters. )
The long version contains all kinds of extra mission screens, extra geography details, special items, Mythran giveaways, etc. while the short version focuses purely on in-game geography and basic story.
LONG Version JPG (Recommended), 2021 images, 176 MB
SHORT Version JPG, 1002 images, 86 MB
LONG Version PNG, 2021 images, 1.66 GB
SHORT Version PNG, 1002 images, 877 MB

Many thanks and all credit to LEGO for creating LEGO Universe, and as I said in the intro pic, if they ever bring it back, I highly, highly recommend at least buying a month's membership!
