Having a hard time posting screenies...either I'm daft or it's not as simple as it seems. Any suggestions?

Woohoo! Okay, just for starters...love how the Base Builder can be used to create interesting set pieces for characters in general. Along with the variety of emotes available, it's possible to literally recreate scenes for comic books. For instance, Doc Phantasm stepping out of the Tome of Logos during one of his many other dimensional excursions in his secluded dwelling - The Nexus.





(Note, will be adding oodles of more pics.  ;D)

The Meeting Room as seen from the second platform looking down at the communal section in front of the fireplace.



Books, books and more books (with more books due to be placed)...



...and in the back corner of the Library, a rather -LARGE- book.  ;D



The 'Red Room' - the orb produces a really groovy sound.  :)



For the record, none of these rooms are entirely finished (this is base building - no room is ever truly 'finished'). Haven't had the opportunity to adjust lighting and add details to give it that 'lived in' look...still got two other rooms needing severe attention: The Arboretum and The Observatory (pics coming soon!)

Good question, Nyghtshade. When using the link to post an image, it provides a drop down menu to select the size you want...but all I get are thumbnail shots. Strange, I was kind of hoping for the opposite...I wanted large screenshots and only got small. Weird.

I still have a bunch of screenshots from bases I toured of clever things people did. I'll see about digging them up and posting them where people can look to see all the possibilities.

Ack! No new pics? No worries...here's a couple of more examples.  :D

Without further adieu...The Arboretum (complete with campfire!)




...and the Observatory...watch out for orbiting planets - they are not flyer friendly.

Just because I just can't stop making rooms. Here's a good reason to have a fire extinguisher installed...and smores.

Not particularly a sports fan, but I have my "Who Dat!" (just a fleur de lis chest emblem with a gold aura) and he NEEDS a girdiron in the DAT DOME! Yeah, that's a skybox being built.





Only enough room for Arena Football. Blech. But whatchagonnado?

Majadi gets her pretty princess bed.



Made with 110 crystal balls, 4 coffee tables, 4 reading lamps, and 2 wall counters. Too bad there are no flowy things to make a canopy. Four-poster-- good enough.

Maybe the final piece of Majadi's Townhouse: the rooftop with the flying Majadi cycle:



Thinking it might need to be larger.

This isn't recent work, but something I did for our old Dauntless Reverie SG base, a few months before shutdown.  The SG was for anyone "touched by magic", and so had arcane themes.

The first bit I did was to tweak an empty nook, turning it into a "Conjuring" area (First 2 images). 

The next thing I did was to create a Moonlight Garden.  (Remaining images)

(The below post I posted a while ago. I could go and change a bunch of stuff, I just took out the "thank you." Yes I will have newer shots and yes they will look much, much better than this. ;) )

Check this out, this is what I have done so far. Lots of improvements, but not too bad! https://www.facebook.com/groups/275527532547553/permalink/1433210536779241/ 

It took me about two days just to load up everything and go off of screenshots that I had taken before. I had built about half the building and had to make it bigger. Had I known that you could literally SAVE your base beforehand, it would have helped me out. But now it gives me an excuse to build all over again and make things better! Warning: These pics I am about to show you are OLD. These are the ones I took before COH got shut down.

May I comment that this reminds me of how I need to lift everything up to the second level? I am about to have a coronary knowing I have to rip down everything and start all over again just to put those ridiculous "ruins" in. I only know because they are sunk into the flooring. -.- Nope, I will not remake my mansion, that is done. For now. Must...have...RUINS...


Aw, look how proud of this I am. *points at the obvious tech* Those will disappear when I create it again!


I am doing a few things at once. I am mourning the fact that I can't put my SG symbol in, thus taking away my ability to have a window. I am HAPPY about it because it gave me an excuse to put in my Gothic windows. I am also slapping myself in the face at the obvious lack of respect I have for the flooring before the building. -.-


Back of the building. Not too bad.


This shot I find puzzling. I am wondering how I had so much room to put a second rack up there. Only thing I can think of is that I decided to forgo the roof, which now I think was stupid. This also reminds me that I have to redo the floor: I obviously only have that one grey block up there, not that lovely pattern. I shall fix this!


This picture isn't so bad. I can put this up without wincing. That tree off to the side in another shot is a gentle reminder to lift everything up to the second level.


Close up shot with something obvious in the middle. Please excuse and pay attention to everything else. ;)


Inside of the bar, where I am fixing bookcases...


To be hidden by obvious bottles, because this is a bar!


Check out the glass in those windows. Nice, huh? Please excuse that ugly white table, that will not be there in the future. :P


Also in this one. Oh, the rebuilding.


I almost didn't post this. See that obviously bad stacking right there? This will be fixed. I am quite pleased, though, with the banner wall. *pouts, whimpers and BEGS for colors.* Pleasity please please.


Are those chairs in back glitching? I bet they are. What silliness.


I was so proud of this picture, once. Now I wonder what else I can do with that...Hm. Put in that moat. Put in that MOAT...


Once you "enter" the castle area, my pride and joy, my work room.


*glances at those black banners with pure joy* ...*turns to Codewalker* I didn't say anything. I didn't, I swear!


What was the point of this shot again? Not sure. Obviously I was proud of it for some reason. Shall improve!


You would think that I would take an obvious shot of the water fountain behind me. Instead I have this. :P


This one is good. I got a nice shot of the levels to the inside of this chapel. I can recreate all of this and add more detail or take out stuff I don't need. Those stairs will be fixed. >.>


In this one I am taking in those stairs in back and how to recreate them. That floor pattern is familiar and I can recreate that easily.


Oh gee, look. A shot of an obvious angel. What would make it more angelic is if I bothered to slap a halo on his head. *thinks of lights and stuff* And fix his wings. *sigh*


Yep. I built a boat. Can we say bad graphics? YES! I build in the worst graphics, it made everything move faster. *shakes head*


Oh, how precious! I can play with one placeable. ...Forever. ...>.>


Please excuse my obvious sarcasm, it is late and I am a little tired. I will probably wind up base building until three in the morning like the bad girl I am. Thank you so much for looking through my pics! And I am kidding, Codewalker, whatever you give us, I am MORE than pleased to be able to come back here and recreate my home! In the shots where it is obvious that I have one placeable or a shot where I am building something, my computer DECIDED to take a shot for me. How happy am I that I never deleted these? VERY. <3

As to the above pictures, do you see what I am talking about? Don't distress, your skills at making bases can improve! How? Well, the first time I created a base, I used one placeable for every room. It was a bookcase, stacked as high as the eye can see and I was so proud of myself. -.- If I had taken a picture, I could share with you how ridiculous it is, so that we can all have a laugh. ;)

Edit: No, I did have the roof in. I bet I raised the floor by one, thus taking away all of that space above.

Zarniel is doing some amazing work.  I was just dropping my jaw while touring her Cathedral building.  VERY creative! 

And yes, I'm loving seeing how many different ways base-builders are using the same components and tools to make Very Different creations.  I'm loving it !

@bitters is one fantastic Base Builder, no question.   You should get ahold of him for tours.   :)
