    I will never stop expressing my love for Darwin! Never!

    The name implies everything. I built a nice base on Darwin! It's a couple thousand blocks above sea level on the side of a mountain. A large hangar can hold spacecraft, while two smaller corridors on the side allow entry into the complex. The right hand corridor opens into two rooms: an eating room with food, water, and supplies, and the other a sleeping area with a staircase travelling upwards through a glass panel that allows viewing of the sky at night. In the front of the base is a large steel landing pad for spacecraft, which is well illuminated by lamps.

    One of the other main features of the base is a long pathway that winds up the side of the mountain all the way to the top. The path can be accessed both by a staircase on the landing pad and the stairs in the bedroom. Along the path are many steep slopes, bridges, a spiral staircase, a few tunnels, and an observation deck. At the top of the mountain sits a small shack with some food and water, perfect for taking in the landscape.

    I think I see a gap in the "market" for an MCEdit-type program for SoA, letting you copy/paste sections of the world to save as a schematic, which can later be imported to another world. :)

    One which understands the old 0.1.6 format and will be able to convert to the 0.2.0 format. :)

    It did take a while to find a good location, but once I found it I knew I wouldn't find any better! :D

    The base was easy, it was the staircase up the mountains that took twenty billion years. XD
