We hope to see you all at the Expo!

Into The Depths

Our brave MB3 soldiers have been running offensive operations into the lower sectors of the station. Also known as “Engineering”, this sector is what is essentially the final frontier on MB3. But liberating this zone for our own purposes is no small task. Most of the sector is in a dilapidated state, with all manner of hostile entities overrunning it.

The Men & Women of MB3 Security have their work cut out for them. We are hoping that in the coming months they’ll be able to offer safer passage into this zone. MB3 Security is currently seeking new Recruits to assist them in their efforts.

Below is a gallery with pictures of some of the areas that have been discovered in the depths of the Engineering Sector.

MB3 Distribution – New Stock of Fresh Brains!

MB3 has just received a new supply of fresh brains. We have interfaced them with a cybernetic harness that is our own patented technology.

The Brain is stored in an air tight containment jar where it is fed oxygen and other nutrients from a series of tubes that run from the shoulder harness. The harness itself also acts as a linkup between the brain and your spinal column and central nervous system.

The Brains are sourced ethically and sustainably in-world from our Research Laboratories at MoonBase 3.

Available Now in 6 color variants on our Marketplace Store

MB3 Research Sector Expansion 2

Our Research Sector has undergone an additional major expansion.

  • 2 New Private Lab levels have been added with over a dozen new Lab Spaces available for use by our Researchers. These Lab Spaces are leasable.
  • The Open Labs have been completed with the addition of the new Cryogenics Labs. These new facilities can also be quickly accessed by Security Personnel using the express elevator.

The following is a Speedlapse video of this immense undertaking which took a month to complete, condensed down to just 6 minutes.

MoonBase 3 – Q1 2021 Newsletter

Words from our Ambassador

It has been an incredibly productive start to 2021 for MoonBase 3 & Deep Space. Early in January we all sat down to discuss some of our plans for MB3 in 2021 in the form of a roadmap. An open discussion was had on the ongoing development of these 2 projects and all that were in attendance had the opportunity to share their ideas.

We have high expectations for this year on how much we can accomplish. From new builds, mechanics, events and stories at MoonBase 3, to new and exciting Sci-Fi Destinations joining our Deep Space Hub. Our imagination is limitless and our work for this year has only just begun.

I want to take this opportunity to personally thank all of our supporters for their motivating words and for choosing to become involved with MB3 & Deep Space in one form or another. Thank you all for your patience as we build a strong foundation that we can all stand upon. The work that we do each day moves us closer to our destination. Together, we can reach the stars!

Sincerely
James Samiam
Ambassador for Deep Space & MB3.

MB3 Research Sector Expansion

The Research Sector has been receiving state of the art upgrades and enhancements. These newly constructed facilities will provide our Researchers an expanded variety of facilities to conduct their work. Posted on Youtube we have a build timelapse video and a trailer. Thank you everyone for your continued support. Enjoy!

MB3 Security Upgrade

A major upgrade to our internal Security Systems has taken place all across MoonBase 3. This upgrade has been made effective to all sectors immediately. All current ID Wristband users will be required to visit the Arrivals desk in the Security Sector or the Reception desk at the Research Sector to upgrade their version 2.0 ID Wristband to the newer (and sleeker) version 3.0 ID Wristband.

Remember to wear your ID Wristband and use it on scanners around the station. This is done with a “Left Click” on any ID Scanners you come across. The ID Wristband that you are wearing will be scanned, then the system will either grant you or deny you access based on your own personal security clearance.

Original version 2.0 ID Wristbands are now obsolete, and will need to upgraded to the newer (and sleeker) version 3.0 ID Wristbands. Visit the Security Sector Arrivals desk to collect your new ID. Security Officers can assist you in migrating your version 2.0 security information onto your new ID.

Research Expedition to Planet Idun

This past weekend MB3’s Research Division took the journey to the newly discovered jungle planet Idun, set in the far reaches of the Milky Way galaxy. The planet features a full day & night cycle, dynamic weather, stunning scenery and of course, a plethora of unique flora and fauna for our eager researchers to study and collect.

MoonBase 3 & Planet Idun are real destinations that you can discover for yourself on the Second Life 3D Platform. Follow the links below to begin your journey.

Destination Link – MoonBase 3
Destination Link – Planet Idun

Our expeditionary team arrived on the surface of the planet at 1400 and they soon began their exploration. There was plenty to discover in the lush green jungle, including mysterious monoliths and strange ancient technologies. Though they were advised by local BluShock soldiers not to tamper with the unknown technology for their own safety.

The Research team arrived on Idun at 1400 and were greeted by members of BluShock Coalition, who operate an outpost in the region. They were anticipating our arrival and soon welcomed us and shared valuable intel that would assist our team on understanding the Idun Jungle.
Being largely wilderness, our Researchers sometimes had to use daring methods of traversing the planets mountainous landscape. A far cry from their usual day to day environment on MoonBase 3.

The teams main objective was to forage as much of the unique flora and fauna as they could and return it to our collection vehicle, which would safely return the scientific specimens to our labs for further studies. In this task, they were successful. Many samples were collected of various shapes and sizes and of different rarities. Credit payments were offered in exchange for these samples based on their rarity. Common samples were valued at a mere 1 credit, while extraordinary samples were valued at up to 5 credits each.

To learn more about Credits, visit our Index Page on the subject.

In conclusion; MB3’s Research Expedition to Planet Idun was a groundbreaking success. A large quantity of strange and extraordinary specimen’s were safely collected and returned to our state of the art Research Labs at MoonBase 3 where further study of these curious organisms can take place.

Perhaps in the future the MB3 Research Division can explore the Jungles of Idun again.

What’s coming to MB3 in the new year?

Everything we do at MB3 is inspired work and we wouldn’t want it any other way. There are dozens of inspired ideas we have that we can draw upon throughout the new year. Only time will tell what exact things the new year will bring to our station and how they will be realized in-world.

Further expansions to existing sectors, whole new areas, many more marketplace store items becoming available and new events are just a few things to expect from MB3 in the new year. There is no doubt in our minds that many great things are in store for us all.

We sincerely thank you all for your support and motivation throughout 2020. None of this would have been possible without our supporters. This is our final blog post for what has been an incredible year!

Sincerely
James Samiam
Ambassador for Deep Space & MB3.

MB3 Security – Battle Report

MB3 Researchers, Residents, and Visitors continue to enjoy their time taking in the atmosphere of the Planetarium, getting some nature time in the Atrium, developing new Technologies in the Research Sector and attending social events in the Lounge & Cafeteria. But unknown to them, a war rages on under their feet in the lower sectors.

Last week a Security Briefing was held in the operations room of the Security Sector where it was revealed another Intrusion by the hostiles was a strong possibility. Deep Scan images of enemy movements beyond the secure perimeter revealed that large clusters of hostiles were beginning to form up in larger groups and moving in closer to our perimeter. The call was made to place the Sector into Lockdown, preventing unauthorized personnel entry into the Sector. Efforts were made to build up defensible positions.

Further Deep Scans revealed that a bulk of hostile forces were being bottle-necked at a specific location in the Engineering Sector. MB3 Security formed up and made plans for an Offensive Operation. They would travel to the Engineering Sector and hit the hostiles hard in an attempt to cull their numbers in the hopes it would compromise their intended Intrusion deeper into our territory.

The First Offensive Operation was only partially effective in reducing the enemy numbers. MB3 Security was under-strength in the event and was unable to do enough of what was necessary. They also took on wounded, which reduced their fighting capacity. The troops were ordered back, and plans were put in place to repeat a similar operation the following day but with a revised strategy and fresh troops.

On the following day a new Deep Scan revealed the hostiles were redirecting more of their numbers into the Engineering Sector, likely in response to our operation the day before. It was also revealed that another cluster of hostiles broke away from the main forces and was bee-lining directly towards our perimeter – which would likely result in a precise and deadly attack on our Security Sector sooner than anticipated.

The troops were mustered and the orders were to strike the majority of hostile forces in the Engineering Sector and cull as many as possible but it had to be done swiftly before making a tactical retreat and preparing for a strong defensive in the Security Sector, for we didn’t possess the manpower to run Offensive & Defensive operations simultaneously.

The Offensive in the Engineering Sector was explosive and the fighting fierce. Collateral damage was high, but the results were incredible. In only 20 minutes, the Security Troops successfully culled over 1000 hostile robots. The tactical retreat was ordered, and the rush back to Defense positions happened just in time to meet the 2nd cluster of hostiles as they breached the Sector. The Troops did not let up. In a matter minutes, the threat was no more.

The Second Offensive was Explosive.

This weeks battle is not an unfamiliar event to our station and to MB3 Security Personnel. The campaign to push back the hostiles and claim more territory for our purposes has been ongoing since the day we discovered this derelict station and set foot here. Find out more in the MB3 Backstory.
