    My underwater base. Only for the brave:



    I still have to learn how to create a proper entrance with drains and wiring... that will be really cool.

    Floran is amazed :eek:

    Perhaps your next move is to make a water purification plant/chamber? :D
    Maybe have 3 glass tanks hanging in the center of a room with those toxic tanks as processors.

    Damn that's impressive. How long did that take?

    A few hours, because I had to gather some blocks. But if you count the time I expent collecting what I already had, it's considerable more...

    Awwww, maaan!!! This + Big windows + Many aquatic creatures to see...

    I will do something similar in the first abyssal zone I find (if I find).

    Good idea. I think I'll explore for some time and see if I can find other interesting things to add.

    Imagine building an entire city there!

    Wow, this is really awesome looking. Does water flood through the building when you open the doors?

    EDIT: NVM! I see the drain!

    Woah. My base doesn't even come close to being this awesome. In fact, my base is just a large hole in the ground. Yours is... awe-inspiring. Well done.:up:

    The drain is just a temporary solution. With the wiring station I should be able to create an automatic system:

    - flood the entrance (instead of opening the door and water coming in) and open the door with a timer
    - enter, close the door and drain the water (with the proper "drain" from the wiring station)
    - open the inner hatch.

    I have never used the wiring tool, so I don't know if it can work like this. I try later.[DOUBLEPOST=1419480757][/DOUBLEPOST]
    Thanks. But my first underwater base was just a couple of doors. If you like to build bases, take your time and plan ahead. The secret is in the details: use different blocks and it won't look simple.

    Found a way to make the entrance without any wires or drains. And no need to collect water with the matter manipulator ever. Just make sure you don't open the two doors at the same time! :)

    I think I'm not alone when I say that I will create a Hylotl just for this! xD

    Oh, my. Would not it be interesting to have a submarine to fast travel to this base and others? :slowpoke:

    Yes, they should definitely inlude a submarine tech. :idea:

    That's good to know, because it's the proper and cool way to do this.

    I don't know why but this inspired me to make a Skyward Base :)
    I just have to figure out how to do it...
    But anyways, the base is amazing, good luck on expanding it!
    But I have a question, where does that huge pit bellow the base serves for? Where does it leads?:V

    Thanks! The pit leads to the mines. I have to recover all the titanium I used to built the base (I think I had over 700 titanium panels when I begun).

    Don't forget to post your skyward base later.

    I'm going to collect some materials for the task first, it's going to take a while to build it, considering I'm quite early on the game =/

    I'm also building a base, after being unceremoniously dumped in a poisonous ocean. Managed to get to build to the bottom, but there's a lack of flora there, have to import some.

    I will say it makes the lighting surreal.

    I like the drain and the dome; there are many builders out there who are still not able to build some nice round things. :D

    I learned how to make round structures with this:


    But I don't remember where I got it, it's either here in the Starbound forum or in the Planet Explorers one.

    The dome in the first post is a 39. You could also make even bigger circles by considering that each square in the picture above is actually four blocks in Starbound.
