How do you manage to have the doors facing east or west ?
(Since i took the sceenshot i redid the sides, made it larger to place the big device and a bed and placed the doors at the edges)

Heres my castle dark dan
http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=201812041

Its still a Wip . i Havent finished the catacombs or the foundations yet or my underwater lake. The dark trap works well for farming dark essence.
I wont show of my main project yet . It's a part underwater costal house inspired by the james bond movies. Then ill move on to making moria lol.

Also if you press ALT + H you can turn off the interface. SHIFT+mouse zoom in and out

The dark trap works because its a dark enclosed area where dark creatures spawn. Then i switch on the flood lights then open the door. Then the light streams in and they are ready for easy picking.

There are so many devices to put around that I didn't have the space nor the time to create a real home, sadly.

wow petrole. With a bit of work you could have a real show home there. You seem to be suffering from the same problem as my new project. Sussing out which is the best back wall to use. Id keep working on it because there hasnt been a base compition for a while. I always keep my bases as W.I.P just in case there is a competition comming up.

The thing is, crafting late game stuff requires different components and devices, and you need to be near them for the craft being available. So I set up all my devices and containers in a short-radius circle. That way, I don't need to move back and forth in my base when crafting.

The bad thing is that the base now looks very packed-in and lacks corridors and space between rooms. I guess that wouldn't be fit for a "show home".
As for the back walls, I dunno, I actually like to put some variety depending on the rooms.

Yea i actually know what you mean about the crafting stations being close together. I usally have a crafting base then i build my projects away from my main base. Because it would just annoy me to move from room to room for crafting. Saying that iam building a hospital wing in a project and it really looks great all the stuff you can build. Not very practical though lol.

Mine looks like Petrols one but its over ground not udnerground. I simply build up a Stone house that i extend by 1 floor if i need more space. Its meant as a temporary solution until i decide where and how i want to build my house.

My biggest problem is that i heard that the strength of objects will get important so im currently searching for the strongest walls and doors and im not yet sure if i will build something like a tower or an underground bunker. I also struggle with other stuff like different lamps etc.
grimwold Dec 8, 2013 @ 10:27am 
yea your right xebov about strength of objects. I think you you should be okay in the jungle though. Unless you get a dark moon, or one of the other events.

I originally wanted a really large base but found the useable distance to machines so small that a more centrally localized base would be much easier for crafting and inv use. So here is mine from the elevator in the middle you can use every machine and access my storages.

I kinda improved my shelter and now digged under to make more space.

I found my problem with doors : i just did not got that clicking on them with left will make them close ! Now i put copper ones and they are shut :p

- the blue wall light is supposed to be autonome, but no light glows from it. Why ?

- i'd like to make a connection between the shelter and underground, but found no way to remove the wood blocks.

Im not sure about it. At first i only encountered spiders in the jungle. Later i found the small wolfish things and now i see the bigger wolves at my doorstep too. So i guess the strength of monsters is modified by the game by something.

The wall light looks like an electrical one, they need energy. For your wooden blocks, you cant remove blocks that have items standing on them (like the devices, bed etc).
