Modular Base Collection - Skins

These are the skins for the MBC.

- Even if you don't care about the MBC, you can make them your lovely cozy houses.
- And even if you don't care about using them, it's a world save perfectly tuned for builders, so please try it cause it's awesome!
- If you are a survival player, I would recommend you to try them with the MBC. If you aren't gonna make an MBC base, you may wanna complete the interior and polish the exterior to get some better houses to live in.

- Is a world save.
- Got 12 skins:
1. Bunker - Made by stone. Probably common, castle-like and very friendly for survival builders.
2. Oasis - The standard skin of the MBC, a composition of sandstone and its red variant, fits in almost every biome.
3. Metropolis - A mix of bricks and terracotta, features some city buildings in the early last century.
4. Nordic - Wooden house with a pretty rooftop, kinda stylish for a town build or such.
5. Glassbox - Transparent, you can see everything inside, super cool with MBC.
6. Shroom - Some kinda derpy stuff, looks not-actually-that-bad in swamps and mushroom islands.
7. Rapturist - Retro-futurism building styles of the Rapture in the BioShock series! Awesome for underwater bases.
8. Impenetrable - Has walls of obsidian and nether bricks, matching your super evil villainous lair in the nether.
9. Beginning - End-stone temple. Blessed with power and will, from where you shall conquer the world!
10. Tangge - Mysterious oriental shrine, made by concrete. If you stack it up to a pagoda, that'll look even better.
11. Lost - Life thrives on the ruin of an ancient fortress, has eroded walls and blends well in a jungle.
12. Edelweiss - Just like something made by Queen Elsa of the Frozen, don't make too much lightning or it chould melt!
- It may look like the ChunkBase series, I know. Some parts are kinda inspired by that, but they are all designed with exact same interior space and exit positions to fit for the MBC, and they are not within a chunk, OFC.

How to use a structure block?
- Alternative: Any 3rd-party software, like WorldEdit, with function to manipulate multiple blocks in a space.

How it works with the MBC: (Skip this part if you don't make any MBC bases.)
- There is a tutorial video on the MBC index post, you may click the title to check it out.
1. All the bases are 19w x 19l x 15h and 15w x 15l x 12h (the wood farm is 15blks tall) space inside.
2. By any means, if you can extract the inner mechanism (like this), then you can place them inside those skins.
3. To extract with a structure block in vanilla MC:
- 1. Load the base you like into the skin world.
- 2. Place a structure block, extract the inner part with 15w x 12h x 15l size with 0,0,0 in position (including floor).
- 3. Copy your favorite skin somewhere blank.
- 4. Dig 2 blocks from x, then 2 blocks from z starting at the structure block of the skin.
- 5. Put that extraction into the new skin at ground corner. Reminder: you may need to load 2-3 times and include entities!
- 6. Replace the structure block inside with a sand stone.
- 7. Find the structure block outside, rename the base then save it.
- 8. Now you've just got a new base! It is under {MC directory}/saves/{your world}/generated/minecraft/structures/, Load it into the world of yours and play!
4. If you extract with mods like WorldEdit, it might be better since there is no pasting bug.

- The wood farm, launcher and headquarter are a bit different with other units. You need to include 15x15x15 for the wood farm, make a 1-blk-thick ceiling for the launcher and a glass in the middle for the HQ to work.
- It is impossible to keep any style inside a base for a structure block, but super easy for anything with 'replace blocks' function.
- If you use the 'Lost' or 'Glassbox' skin with MBC, make sure the end of tracks in some bases is a solid block, or they will not work properly.

I really tried to use your frames. I just don't understand the instructions as I just can't get them to work for me. Help me please?

XD ~ Thank you for supporting my creations!

The concept is like this: All the MBC bases have 15 x 12 x 15 inner size (except the wood farm, it is 15 tall), the skin is 2 blocks thick and all of them have exactly SAME size in both OUTSIDE (19 x 15 x 19) and INSIDE.

If you use any means of method (structure blocks, WorldEdit) that can extract their interior (with the ground floor), then you can put the extractions into those new skins, they will 100% fit. For e.g., If you have an Iphone, and you have a case, you can change any cases for your Iphone, because it will not change in size.

You may wanna check -, I just extracted all of them and put them in a new save, what you wanna do is to put them into those skins like that ~

Actually it is pretty fun! Like you can DIY a schematic yourself by combining 2 schematics, I did it myself, too. The default skin is kinda for convenience so people can really start to build their bases quickly.

The reason why I'm not making it awhole is because there will be way too much work for me... I made 12 bases in EP1 and 12 skins, then we have a combination of 12 ^ 2 = 144 bases... If I update them or add new stuff, I will be doomed XD ~.

It may take 1-2h in the beginning to complete a set of bases, but if you become familiar with the process, you can complete it in 1h, I'm sure.
