The base forum cannot be complete without a show off thread!

Since I have not had time to work with the new stuff, I must live vicariously through all you brilliant creative (obsessive?) people. 

 

So post some pics of what you're working on!  I don't care if it's still a Work In Progress, or a completely finished masterpiece, one room, a cool bit of clever placement, or whatever... let's see it!

Guys and Gals to avoid huge images that good off screen use these tags

The value of 700 is still a little large... I like to use 600.  Some folks prefer 400...  ymmv

Most of the work I've done on the Amazon Army base on Torchbearer has been getting features and function up.  But I have added some rooms that are mostly just for fun.  This is the spa room so far; will probably add a separate sauna room.

If you've ever been in any of the bases I've made, one thing is a given:  there will be a lot of pillars.  I am grateful that I don't have to use CoT or Japanese styled pillars any more, and that I can pick from more appropriate styles:

And now that I can use open roofs, I can add an atrium:

Ok, I don't have any pics of new construction, since I'm still working on them... but, just for reference, here's a few from before the shutdown, so no access to the cool new parts, or new attachment options, just old school stacking.

Hey Lola, your images aren't working for me =(

 

Heraclea: Those look AMAZING! Though I see you can't seem to settle on a single costume, either!

Beautiful work Heraclea.  Don't you love having fountains to work with?  And the water!  (does anyone remember having to use the "slow" raid items with the "ripple" effects for water?  lol)

 

Lola, I really really really want to see your pictures, but they are broken for me as well.  I'm not sure this forum plays nicely with dropbox....

Use Imgur instead for parking pictures for public use someplace that won't disappear on you.

Huh... I don't know why they're not working, they are showing right in the post for me, same images I've shared in the Discord. Really don't feel like setting up yet another account for something I have no interest in using just to share pictures.

The underground lake and pool both use slow fields for that effect... though apparently no one can see them but me :/

It seems to be a permission error.  (Error 401)  You are most likely logged into Dropbox so the images show for you.

Another scene that I really enjoyed making.

 

Li1IILq.jpg

 

This is the Torchbearer version of the Forum Olocunæ Encisorumque, by the way.  It relates to the backstory of my Roman Amazon characters from New Colchis.

 

The religion practiced in New Colchis is a female-centric version of the Roman religion. Minerva is the de facto head of the pantheon there. Venus, Juno, and Vesta are also worshipped, as are Vulcan and Neptune. The private, personal worship of the junones loci is almost as important as the public cult of the gods. Animal sacrifice is the chief act of public worship.

 

In addition to the classical pantheon, the women of New Colchis worship a maritime version of the Triple Goddess, the Sirenes Tres, envisioned as sirens or mermaids. These goddesses are individually known as Osonis Æamia, the maiden and patroness of love, and identified with Venus; Imæa Immania, the mother and patroness of fertility, identified with Juno or Ceres; and Oës Iansanis, the crone and patroness of war, identified with Minerva and Proserpina. Collectively, these three mermaid goddesses are known as the Parcæ (Fates) or Olocunæ.

New Colchis has public temples of Minerva, Vesta, and the Olocunæ. The temple of the Olocunæ is more of a courtyard. It serves as a public meeting and concert hall, since the chief act of worship performed in their honor is frenzied dancing and drumming. Others have smaller or private shrines.

 

The Encisi are also venerated there; these are the souls of the honoured dead, identified with the Penates. Communion is also sought with these spirits at ceremonies in their honor. The Latin name is usually explained as 'those whose names are inscribed'; there are other explanations. This is also the easy path for an outsider to achieve divinity on New Colchis. A wide variety of historical figures are worshipped as Encisi. These include predictable ones like Hypatia and Joan of Arc; they also include Benjamin Franklin, Uncle Tom (from Uncle Tom's Cabin), and Amelia Earhart. Probably the most widely venerated male deity on New Colchis, far more conspicuous than any of the Roman gods, is the ghost of Charles II of Spain, who is considered a healing spirit and wise counselor on New Colchis.

Thanks for sharing!  Great stuff there.  I hadn't noticed the water or grass in the base builder, but after seeing your screencaps I dug a little deeper.... wowsa!

While I love the massive amount of new items available - it makes me miss the base building that was actually on live. Having to figure out how to build your base with the tools we had then was part of the challenge and uniqueness of bases. With that said - I have been spending so much time in my personal base just in awe of all the new options.

Freakenstein, those are awesome.  I am assuming you are using the fog sky effect, did you use the indoor sky volume or the default sky command?  Someone on Discord was saying the two settings don't like to play nice with each other.

 

I've just barely gotten my base functional.

I filled the largest room with pillars to build on top of, and kept a side hall for the functional items while I work.  It's not pretty (yet).

Just using the ambient fogs in those, I used the sky fog and its nice but pics were hard to make out. =]

Welcome to the secret sub-city headquarters of the Unofficial Roleplaying Sewer, a pollution-based Rogue Isles cabal on the so-called 'Everlasting' server.  Such optimism the idealists of Paragon City have, hm hm hm... 

 

Our journey begins here, after splashing into a festering cistern of raw goop (a clever ploy to weed out the weak,) with a literal dumpster fire.

Perhaps a snack while you dry off?

The facilities.  We're not barbarians, you know.

Bogwallop's room, the Wallowbog.  A hideous mutant freak who truly puts the 'wet' in 'wetwork.'  You probably shouldn't spend too much time here, or look too long at what those mushrooms are growing out of.

I hope you've enjoyed this little tour.  You will shortly discover that you are unable to leave.  Perhaps this would be a good opportunity for us to discuss... your new career.

[Let's see if I can get images to work here...]

 

This is actually the second base I completed (as much as bases are -ever- complete...) and my first Villain base. Since seeing the new shinies in base construction, I really wanted to try my hand at recreating my old Arachnos base. The result: The Web of Arachnos squad headquarters.

 

ArachnosMainHall.jpg

 

This is the main hall, with meeting space and transport to multiple locations, including Paragon and other dimensions, via portal.

 

ArachnosHangar.jpg

 

Here we have the team hangar, with a flyer to get pretty much anywhere within the Isles. (Flyer door has beacons connected!)

 

ArachnosCyberneticsLab.jpg

 

The Cyber Lab, with many basic medical amenities, and spare Tarantula suits for those that require more... intensive medical intervention.

 

ArachnosSoliderBarracks.jpg

 

Soldier Barracks, complete with upper level sleeping area, and armor storage for Bane and Crab combatants.

 

ArachnosWidowBarracks.jpg

 

Widow Barracks, much the same as Soldier quarters, but with embedded energy crystals for honing mental abilities and sharpening focus.

 

ArachnosMuBarracks.jpg

 

Mystic Barracks, complete with... well, we're not sure what exactly that is, but the Mu know, and we're not planning to ask.

 

 

The idea was to sort of explore how the layout might be unified in the Arachnos style, but unique to each faction. Not pictured but also part of the base is a storage area, a shooting range, and a few other surprises. It's not as exciting as a haunted graveyard in the rain, but I'm very happy with it.

Not the best at this kind of stuff but I do think it kind of fun in smaller doses so I messed around last night and moved the secret entrance to the med room and made a little bar for folks.  I would love to be able to put stack of cash and beer/liquor bottles on the big table I made neare the couches but I can get them on the for the life of me even using f5 for surfaces, it works other places oddly enough like the bar itself.

1.  enable room clipping  (F3)

2.  fill a room section from top to bottom, creating a filled wall/pillar

3.  put things on top of the filled section... outside

 

tips:

You can place a surface tile on top of the section and put things on it (some of the surface tiles act like floor anchors)

 

Filling multiple sections makes for easier building/placing things on top.

 

You can clear the section back down to floors and ceilings after building what you want on top (so you can build inside again)

 

You can move your entrance teleporter to the top

 

You can set the inter-base tp points to go back and forth between inside and outside

 

You can raise and lower items above and below the base... but you have to stay within the horizontal parameters of the actual plot.

 

You will need to use lamps & lights outside, as there is no ambient lighting... OR you can wait for the next patch that will allow you to enable outside ambient lighting.
