LEGO UCS Millenium Falcon

I’ve finally decided to get serious about Bricklinking my own LEGO UCS Millenium Falcon. I’ve started down this road a few times, but this time I will complete the quest!

LEGO UCS Millenium Falcon The first step is getting an accurate parts list to track my progress.  To do this, I want to export the inventory list from Bricklink.  When I look at the inventory online, I see a very handy image of the piece in addition to the part number and name.  Does anyone know how to export the inventory and include those images?  This will be extremely helpful when I search my own parts to find what I need.

I need your opinion on a LEGO MOC…

Ok, so I could use your help.  I’d love to hear your opinion on a LEGO MOC of mine.  More specifically, I’d like to know which of three options you like best.  I am building out road plates for my town display; adding sidewalks, bigger trees, studs for minifigures, etc.  Which version do you prefer, street 1, 2, or 3?

*Note: just to be clear, the differences are in the construction of the sidewalks themselves.  The minifigures are just there.  They were the closest ones I had on hand.
