- Sturdy! MILS makes MOC’s easier to transport.
- More color options! (Less of a deal for Moonbase, but it’s way cheaper to do a white or dark grey layout with MILS than with baseplate)
- Allows for below-grade features.
- Joins together with technic pins.
- Already have some Moonbase Classic modules? No problem. We can shim them up to the proper height with just a few pieces.
This is what it should look like, with MILS:
Here’s a link to the LDD file.
In an attempt to get more people involved, we’ve also figured out a way for folks to contribute smaller slices of Moonbase, in the form of little vignettes.
We’re building some modules with recesses that are 1 brick deep, like so:
The modules themselves are pretty easy:
- “ground level” for the module is 1-brick high. The edges should probably be at ground level wherever you want it to look like it connects naturally with the lunar surface.
- The “ground level” color needs to be light-blueish-grey.
- It can be any size from 8×8 to 40×40, in multiples of 8 studs.
- It doesn’t need to be rectangular, but each edge has to be a multiple of 8 studs.
Examples (these are pretty boring!):
