Deep Space Has Moved & MB3’s Closure

Deep Space has moved and is now hosted at the Citadel: The Legion Chronicles sim. Thank you Citadel for helping us keep the dream alive!

Everything about Deep Space that you are familiar with has not changed, with the only difference being the absence of an MB3 entry due to the closure of the Space Station. Instead, the main entryway now supports Citadel.

MB3 was our most ambitious project in SL to date and one of the hardest to let go of, for sure. Most of the mesh objects we created for the sim are still available on the SL Marketplace Store, and picture galleries and videos of the sim remain on the website for viewing.

Deep Space is moving & will not be closing!

Greetings Deep Space travelers!

In our previous news post I had announced the closure of both Deep Space & MB3. Since that news got out there many people reached out to me to share their sadness over the news, and I also received offers to help keep Deep Space online and running.

Today I am happy to announce that Deep Space will live on in Second Life but at a new location! The owner of Citadel has graciously offered Deep Space a new home at their sim. The Hub will be exactly the same as you remember it, except it will be at this new location.

And so the Deep Space journey continues! Thank you everyone for your kind words and your support. I hope to see you all there when we make the move to the new location on January 1st.

Deep Space & MB3 Sim Closure

On January 1st 2022 Deep Space & MB3 will be closing it’s doors.

Our journey began back in January of 2020 and we will never forget the journey we’ve had together. Since the earliest days when MB3 began as a small outpost it was our vision for our universe to grow exponentially into something truly unique which harkened back to the old days of Second Life when freedom of creativity was king. It’s also been an opportunity to inspire others to create, expand, and share their own creations on the platform.

I wish to personally thank each and everyone of you who visited our sim and interacted with us and joined your Destinations with Deep Space. Without you none of what we achieved would have been possible. Together, we all did our part in supporting the greater Sci-Fi community within Second Life and inspiring creativity to anyone who crossed our paths.

Perhaps some time in the distant future MB3 & Deep Space can make a return to Second Life and serve the community once again but in new & interesting ways. Until that time comes, I wish everyone a safe & easy journey!

With the SL SCIFI EXPO we are releasing several new products to our Marketplace Catalogue, as well as a few exclusive items that will be debuting in our Exhibit.

At MB3 we’ve been hard at work developing a new line of Water-Based Cryo Pods, new avatar accessories, hydroponic systems, and more. Take a look at the Gallery below for a sneak peek at some of these new items!

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 & Deep Space at Sci-Fi Con 13

Beginning May 13th MoonBase 3 will be exhibiting at the Sci-Fi Convention Relay For Life. We’ll be showing off many of our creations in 4 unique settings! Teleporters to our exhibits have now been added to the Deep Space Hub for easy access. Come on by and visit our exhibits. We hope to see you there!

Convention teleporters are now active and ready for use in our Deep Space Hub. Come visit us and see our exhibits for yourself!

Product Update

Our Scientific Workstation has been updated with it’s own set of Bento Animations. You can now use the Computer Keyboard & the Autoclave in addition to the Microscope. For those of you who might already own a previous version of the Workstation, you can receive this update FREE by using the re-delivery option on our SL Marketplace Store.

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 Turns 1 Year Old

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!

It is almost time now for us to move forever on-wards into a very promising and rewarding future for MoonBase 3 & Deep Space. But before we do that let’s take a look back at events which unfolded throughout Q1 2021 through the eyes of our image gallery.

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.
