Moonbase Inclusivity
Join to comment
I've been looking forward to the groups feature of MOCpages for a while, and Sean does not disappoint. I haven't seen a group for moonbases, and I've been considering starting one. But since it's kind of a niche subject and it's mutually inclusive in the "space" theme, I wanted to get a discussion started in the community first. Do we want this to be an all-inclusive space group (with mechs, moonbases, all the various factions, etc.), or should this be more of a "miscellaneous space" group for creations that don't fit in any other space genre?

What Memory said. There can be any number of more focused niche groups under the umbrella of this all-inclusive generic Space group.

Do all the moonbases have to fit together, and work off of a single kind of base/design format? If they do, then you should be sure to state that.

'Moonbase' is a standardised format; all modules are completely interchangable, and don't even have to be shaped like space stuff: you could have a series of city moonbase modules, and as long as they went with other city modules they would look like they belonged together. That is the whole point behind the format, to allow hundreds, nay, thousands of builders to make millions of independent modules that can fit together with each other in almost any way and look like one person made them. Of course, the differences in building techniques can leave some modules looking like the proverbial ugly duckling, but that is not too much of an issue.

The moonbase standard used to be posted at Zemi.net, but I think that site is gone for good.

In the mean time, some of it can be found at http://www.classic-space.com/plugins/content/content.php?content.52

A more complete version is at http://home.planet.nl/~baas0040/MoonbaseStandard/Moonbase_History.html - however, I understand the Dutch version is slightly altered from the original standard, though I am not sure exactly how much or if it is compatible with the original.

I have some of the old images stored on my computer - unless someone already has it posted somewhere, I can add a folder to my MOCpages site for future reference, with the understanding that I had nothing to do with its development and it is therefore not my MOC by any stretch of the imagination - let me know if that is a good idea.
