Welcome towards my PMC Underwater Wonderland project contest 11 entry named:

Moon Pool Research Center (MPRC)

MPRC is an mobile underwater research center with a moon pool as docking bay for submarines.
Inside the moon pool you can breath, but the pressure of the air is the same as of the water. For that need there are 4 (de)compression chambers to make sure you don't get the divers sicknes. Two tubes are placed along side the moon pool for living and researching the colorful coral reefs

MPRC:
Redstone controlled
- Living quarters lights.
- Research facillity lights.
- 4 (working) engines individually controlled for maximum steering possibilties.
- Moon pool interior lighting.
- Moon pool underwater guiding lights.
- Decompression chambers, controlled per tube.
Living quarters features
- Living quarters.
- Common area.
- Rest rooms.
- Thinkers corner.
- Storage.
Research facillity features
- 2 large research bassins with each two terminals.
- 5 small research bassins with each two terminals.
- Several research work places.
- Archives.
Moon pool features
- 3 cranes for lifting the small research submarines.
- 24 storage places for carry verhicles.
- 10 storage rooms for reserve material and other stuff.
- 6 small research submarines store-able.

Small research submarines:
Features
- Engine on of (yes the props are working)
- Cargo door open/close. Cargo area is 2x5x2 or 20 blocks of volume.
- Dive downwards.
- Dive upwards.
- 4 search lights individual controlled.
Carry verhicles
- cruiser, for fast underwater transport.
- Science, packed with sciencitif stuff.
- Floaters, small agiler than the cruisers for research between the coral reefs.
- Diggers, taking samples of the coral reefs.
- Dumper, temporarily storing samples of the diggers for transport back towards the MPRC

Lore:
While Steve enjoyed the colorful coral reefs and fish, Steve started to wonder why this world was so colourfull. After all; the nether, the sky, the caves, space and others did not had this vibrant colour palette.

With that in his mind, Steve went back towards his industrial complex to start making a research center. At first Steve thought about an industrial one, but those aren't moveable neither would train tracks work underwater. After long thinking he decided to make a mobile underwater research center. With that he could research the vast sea without having to go back.

Steve equipped the MPRC with 6 small submarine capable of carrying load or research objects into the reef. For proper observation a glass bol was used as command place for the small submarines.
In order to maintain those subs, he needed a docking bay inside the MPRC.

With that the base of the MPRC was laid. The docking bay or moon pool figures in the center of it. On both longest side Steve made two tubes. On each end Steve placed an engine, for a total of 4 engines. These were heavy industrial engines that could travel long distance or make steep corners when needed. Inside the tubes normal land air pressure was maintained. One tube designed for controlling and living while the other tube was designed for research. The research tube contains 2 large aquariums and 5 smaller aquariums. All of these are fully close able in case of quick rising of diving.

The first objective of the MPRC is to find out why & how the coral reefs are so colorful. With that, Steve set out into his new journey.

Other:
- Do not claim this as your own build.
- No reposts.



Personally I appreciate more a thoughtfull comment than a diamond.
So leave a comment if you like, or not and say why =)

Nice idea on this entry. Maybe, you could have mixed up the shape a bit more? It seems very flat and repetitive, so maybe adding different shapes to it would make it look more unique and interesting.

I love your interiors! Very basic and simple, but very practical!

Ah yes the shape. That design choice comes from the fact that used redstone. A bland tube is more easily wired with several lines directly near each other than a weirdly shaped one. This is especially true for the small submarine with how it's packed with redstone (crap, I should have added that picture...). Also a tube factor is more suited to resist the water pressure of +50m of water on top.
Anyway I see what I can do with it.

Yush interiors, it will give this build extra dimension in combination with my redstone wiring.

Indeed, good luck my fellow competitor and thank you for the constructive feedback.

The way your submarine is going it looks like its going to crash, I really love that you used redstone for the ship, this should give you a strong shot at winning.

Thanks for pointing out that I still need to adjust the 4 helms.

I do hope so that the judges are looking further than only a main impression. It is interesting to incoorporate the redstone but it surely gives it own troubles. The troubles come forth of not taking any space up reserved for other ends such as living space.

Anyway, thanks for the comment & diamond :-)

It is really amazing. I like how you pay attention to details (like those flaps). Good luck on the contest :)

While, I like it to let it look realistic, so yes I try to pay attention towards these details.

Hey there, this thing looks cool :-)

I'd really like to give constructiv critic but this is absolutely nothing I could imagine so I can't say what to change or add :-)

Interesting MPRC design, looks like the perfect place for research. I don't  think I have see something like this with front and back engines, must make travel quite easy. The interior looks like it would be comfortable to work and live in. I like your use of different color stained glass, I always end up using the same color when building. The little submarine is well designed for its size. I also really like the way the whole thing seems at home in the landscape. All in all nicely done, though it does seem a bit lonely out there.

Love the long and detailed comment :-)

The front and rear engines are handy for steep corners and those have working props.

The color palette is a bit bland but it works for me finely and the lore.

The small submarine was made before the MPRC so yes, I builded the MPRC around it.

Glad you pointed the loneliness of this build out. I go see what I can do about it.

Nice, for the rest of the contest session, you could add those colourful corals around the ship, not so much that you would be pressured about the remaining time

I was actually more planning to place those in the research aquariums for study. Placing some color schemed overhauled submarines around the map picking up some coral or do some scientific stuff.

And yes, I feel far lesser pressure now in the remaining time.

Thanks for the comment & diamond :-)

ps,
How is your entry coming by? I just assume you're going to enter.

This just a suggestion but why don't you make a special in your week in review. Fo example when the reviewing period starts, you pick your winner and add it.

Thanks.
Ah you're trying to enter, persons like you & build teams are the reason (in combination with expected lack of time next week) why I uploadid this quickly. So it doesn't get overwhelmed by those entries ;-)

Anyway I look forward towards your entry and thanks for the comment & diamond :-)

You're most welcome :) And I get wanting to put it out early, just don't be discouraged by other builders. I know those build teams are fairly daunting, as a 15 person team or something like that took the last contest i entered, but that should encourage you to try new and more venturous builds.

I am not discouraged, just making sure I have a chance.

Although I do start wondering now what kind of twist you're going to give this entry of yours. I would be suprised if you go out of your comfort zone of modern builds. So I do expect something modern of you, yet I do not see how you would do that, but heck you're an architect (student) so that shouldn't be to hard for you. (sigh, damm those "you" in this comment)

Lol. I am planning something contemporary, but i won't give any more spoilers than that. I'm keeping this under wraps until i have something truly solid to present.

I like it! :D
However, the color scheme between the submarine and the main sub is a bit.. weird X3

True dat, I am planning to change it.
I believe I stated it in the caption of the first picture of the small submarine and in the description part "To be done".

Anyway never bad to hear you're on the right track in making changes.

Thanks for the comment & diamond :-)
