Baseplate Tips-Neptune Discovery Lab
The Neptune Discovery Lab Baseplates (also in the Dark Forest Fortress, Hydro Crystalation (not a word, but that's the name) Station, and the Islanders one (largest) can be difficult to build with, so here I have two solutions.
About this creation

Base 1:


Built directly into the ground, works well for having multi-levels. The entrance is basic but can easily be added onto.

The back, where other things are easy to add. Another doorway, and if you have two of these a passageway could be added here.

The wall against the cliff-not really great for building unfortunately.

Base 2:


Raised above the ground, has a great look and it can have vehicles pass under it.


The front-the entrance is not very refined, and you can see how a modestly tall vehicle can fit under.

The back-walkways look cool with this sort of base.

The side.

A top view. Just for fun I placed a trapdoor for escapes.

This is all simple, but I found it quite difficult to figure out how to use these baseplates. They are oddly shaped and raised in a wierd way. Fortunately, the angle is the opposite of an inverted 1x1x3 (I think that's what it's called).

I have the baseplate (it appears in both the first and second Knights' Kingdom castles) but I'd have to figure out what to do with it.

Quoting Deus Slayer I love the second (i guess it just looks better) but thats really sad. The first one is made in a far better way.
What's sad?

You seemed to be really involved in the group so I thought "What the heck" and made you an admin. I haven't checked out this creation yet, just found your most recent one. :)

Well done and well thought out ideas! I may have to use the raised plate I have for some sort of a base now:)

Really great ideas, me and my friend usually use those for brickwars, but we have used these http://www.bricklink.com/catalogItem.asp?P=2552px6 to make some bases.
