Space Base Project - Need help from players!

Post by imnotanexpert » Fri Aug 16, 2013 10:59 am

The idea:
There is a incredibly massive space base, which can be up to 256x256 blocks (i believe). Now because there is no space biome in minecraft, you'll have to use your imagination, or use a mod like solar apocalypse to kill all surface life (although im not sure what effects this will have on the robots on the outside when they raid, and outside glass would have to be replaced with the special safe glass), or simply download the map when it has been made.

These are sectors to the base:
The 'Life' sector: apartments, libraries, religious building, public areas, hospital? etc

The 'Industrial' sector: mines, workshop, armoury, barracks, repair centre for robots (hospital?)

The 'Military' Sector: Mostly above ground buildings, for the droid militia.

The 'Agricultural' Sector: Giant glass domes on the surface where all of the plant life is grown, and also a garden area.

Robots (npc's with different skins) will be the sole military force of the base. They can survive the outside conditions because they are purely mechanic (you'll have to use your imagination for this bit because all the npc's can survive outside). Therefore they can venture out to other bases and raid.


The space humans will live in apartments, and set off each day to either the agricultural or industrial sector where they work.

Now, im not quite sure how the robots will 'breed', but it definitely wont be with the humans.
The entire base will be one structure, sub buildings within the townhall.
Robots are npc's with different skins and are unable to breed with humans.
Most of the base is underground, with only some areas on the surface - i'm not sure how good the path finding mechanic is though.

Image
This is subject to change and most likely will: The agricultural dome on the planet surface. To the right of this picture there is a proper space base entrance (yes, with two doors that wont be both open at the same time so air won't escape. see, i've thought about these things to make it more realistic)

I need a strong team of people to help out with this, as it won't get finished on my own.

Is this a space culture?
If so, I recommend setting the buildings to be built high, HIGH up in the sky.

Yes, its a future culture of humans exploring other planets. A lot of them are iron miners, so a large part of the base is underground.

I've had another idea:
the main objective of the colony is to do research. Some of the npcs are scientists and 'make science' for their company, other bases would raid to steal their 'science', and lone native buildings would raid to destroy their 'science'.
But I think this would need some expert knowledge for this to work, from someone who knows the insides of millenaire better than i do

btw the underground apartments block is almost completed.Except I cant finish it because my laptop lead has stopped working :(

While the extra bits for raiding would be really cool, currently the raiding system does not allow for the kinda of thing you want to do. A few reasons:
1. A raid is only complete when the entirety of one force or the other is completely dead. This wouldn't allow for a raiding party to come in, kill a few, take some stuff, and leave.
2. Raiding parties don't take materials that they find in raiding back with them.
3. Raiding parties don't destroy any buildings, only people.

These are all pretty cool things for a raiding party to do, you should put it up on the Suggestions page.

Here is some, the villagers will not like being underground and likely will teleport to the surface, probably.
