MoonBase 3 – The Months of September – October

September & October continued this years trend by being very productive with more events and a lot more building focused on fleshing out areas of the station and touching up on details.

In Early September a large Intrusion event occurred in the Security Sector which created many opportunities for Roleplay and opened the way for new visitors to apply for Security and become involved. Later in the month we released over 2 dozen new products on our Marketplace Store.

In October a major focus was put on the Domestic Sector with the introduction of a new Lounge. The Atrium was also revitalized and remarkable improvements were made through the use of new textures and Mesh modelling.

A lot of great things have been happening at MB3 over the last 2 months. And with the entire year almost behind us, we are thrilled at everything we’ve been able to accomplish together!

Introducing our New Theme; Fic-Torian!

At MB3 we have been exploring a new theme for the Domestic Sector of our Space Station. We brought together Sci-Fi & Victorian influences and meshed them together. We call our new theme; Fic-Torian!

100% Mesh, High Detail, & Low Impact, our new Fic-Torian items are visually appealing and will suit many environments including your old homestead back on earth. The fine, intricate details will impress your guests!

Some of these new creations are now available on our Marketplace Store. Expect many more to appear in our catalogue over the coming weeks.

MB3 Intrusion – Battle Report

MB3 Intrusion was a week and a half long marathon event where hordes of hostile machines attacked the stations Security Sector. This proved to be a great opportunity for our crew members to get together to socialize and roleplay and have a great time!

The final day of the event was streamed LIVE on Youtube.

The extensive and relentless assault on The Security Sector continued throughout the last week and persisted over the weekend as MB3 Security Personnel and invading forces battled it out in the lower levels of the station.

Who are these intruders? Read the backstory of MB3 to learn more.

Civilian lives were at risk as they found themselves caught in the crossfire. A concentrated effort was made to ensure their safety by staging search and rescue missions and rerouting several elevator routes to bypass high risk areas. A New Defense Perimeter was hastily set up to contain these high risk areas. This left a significant portion of the sector abandoned, derelict, and without power. These areas became known as the Intrusion Zone.

Structural collapse caused by collateral damage in the Intrusion Zone.

While the best case scenario for us would have been to re-secure the entire sector – this was an impossible task due to the sheer amount of aggression and overwhelming numbers our personnel faced in the field during the earlier stages of the attack. Many were injured in battle, and our Infirmary was at maximum capacity. And so orders were to cut our loses and fall back; abandoning half the sector and setting up a Defendable Perimeter around the Intrusion Zone. From here, our personnel could more effectively ensure the safety and security of the rest of the station against the ongoing threat.

Many wounded soldiers were treated in the infirmary after fighting long battles.

Included within the Intrusion Zone was our Command Center containing highly valuable equipment. A specialist squad was sent on a mission into the Intrusion Zone to re-secure this vital command equipment needed to collect Intel on the enemy and more effectively communicate with our soldiers in the field.

Thanks to this specialist squad successfully securing the equipment, we were able to construct a new Command Center behind our secure perimeter. Results from a Deep Scan on the station showed a trending drop in hostile activity in the lower levels – indicating the enemy had suffered heavy losses and were possibly conducting a tactical retreat of their own.

Command Center back online!

With this Intel we estimated their forces had 3 days of fighting energy left. While this was good news, it was not yet time for celebration. It was a volatile situation and things could change in an instant. Order were to stay sharp and to take the fight to the intruders whenever possible, and keep the perimeter secure and civilians safe above all else.

The enemy attacked the perimeter in large hordes, wave after wave.

The enemy staged several large scale offenses against our perimeters in the final few days of the assault. But our Security Personnel being well dug into their new defensive positions were able to cut them down in large numbers with minimal risk to themselves. The tide had certainly turned in their favor.

Chalk this one up as a victory soldiers. The battle is won. We are all tired, but we will recover.

Intrusion at MB3

Several days ago our scanners in the Security Sector picked up a large uptick of hostile activity in the lower levels. The number of enemies were swelling and beginning to move towards our perimeter. Security Lockdown was initiated, and our personnel prepared for possible intrusion.

Security Personnel prepare for the next assault

Yesterday, the Intrusion finally occurred and our Security Personnel fought tooth and nail to hold back the avalanche of hostiles that broke through our defences and swarmed from every direction.

Security Personnel took on wounded, and were pinned. A tactical retreat was ordered.

The situation quickly snowballed out of control as the squad was pinned down in our HQ and took on a wounded officer. A tactical retreat was ordered as the situation grew too dire to turn the tide. And so they hastily fought their way to the maintenance elevator on the 2nd level and managed to escape with their lives.

The tactical retreat is successful, and all personnel escape with their lives.

The Security Sector is now largely overun by hostile forces, and is expected to remain out of control for at least a week as we run counter attack operations to thin their numbers and regain control of the sector.

MoonBase 3 – The Months of July – August

It’s been 9 months since we started this project and we cannot believe how far we’ve come in such a short amount of time. We never would have anticipated to have been this far into the project by this time. But here we are!

In early July construction began on the highly anticipated Engineering Sector. It’s been speculated that MB3′ structure is of unknown origin. It is without a doubt much older than the corporation let’s on!

Upon rediscovery of MB3, most areas of the station were salvaged and renewed. All but the Engineering Sector.. dangers and mysteries await those brave enough to descend into this derelict sector ::Coming Soon::

Also in July construction continued on the expansion to the Research Sector. We had some success with the build. However we felt it wasn’t quite adequate for the sectors needs. And so the build was scrapped, and we took 4 weeks break from the project to rest, recuperate, and find new inspiration for a rebuild. And we found it! In August the Research Sector was successfully built upon and expanded with the new Open Labs!

As an added bonus we have also began construction of a Moon Surface area that will replace the Moon Platform. Grab your space helmet and descend the maintenance elevator to set foot on the surface of the Moon itself!

Research Sector Expanded

We’ve been hard at work cooking up something special for the Research Sector, and it has finally arrived. We have doubled the amount of explorable space in the Research Sector for visitors & researchers alike, new maintenance elevator access, and more. Visit us soon and see the changes.

Special thanks to our MB3 staff who participated in our trailer footage!

MoonBase 3 – The Month of June

What a month it has been for MoonBase 3! Many new developments were added to the station, big and small. We kicked off our 3rd sector, Domestic, complete with Apartments and a functional Planetarium. Overhauls were done to the Research Sectors Private Labs in an effort to improve them, and work began on constructing a new Public Lab area for everyone to enjoy.

The Security Sector experienced the biggest invasion event yet, resulting in a large section of the Sector being destroyed. But destruction is often followed by creation. And so the Sector continues to evolve with each passing event.

Deep Space continued to develop and grow with more worlds joining the ambitious project. We can’t wait to see what’s in store for the Month of July and on-wards for MB3!
