Underwater Base

Posted (edited)

Well, Jeb has done it again. Gene is so fed up with Jebediah constantly buzzing the tower, that he's decided to go and live on the seafloor.

Your mission is to build Gene an underwater house/base for him to live in, away from Jeb and the other kerbonauts. Even better, you could build it on Eve. 

 

PLEASE INCLUDE A CRAFT FILE/SAVE FILE!!!

 

Mods allowed:
Tweakscale, (Please do not ruin the competition with it)

Planetary Domes,

and Airplane plus. (Maybe for a submarine?)

Also, IF YOU NEED IT, hyper-edit, Mechjeb, and KER are also allowed. 

Requirements and Scoring: 

Requirements:

Must accommodate 10 Kerbals at least. (Gene loves guests)

MUST be on the bottom of Kerbin, Laythe's or Eve's sea. (No floating bases) 

Needs to have a base/surface submarine so that Gene can restock his home and bring guests down.

Scoring:

Each Kerbal that can stay in the house is 1 point. Example: 4 MK1 crew cabins: 8 points.

The base is self-sustanible and can produce/convert ore: 20 points. 

The base is fully stock: 50 points.

Each submarine that can dock at the base is 25 points. 

If you can LAUNCH a Rocket or plane from the base, you get 100 points. (A bonus 5000 points if you can actually re-dock the rocket at the base. :D)

 

Gene will personally review your homes after they are posted. 

 

Have fun guys! 

There is no deadline, so I can't wait to see what you come up with.

A bonus 5000 points for re-docking a rocket that was launched from the base, you say. Hmm...

*Grabs jackhammer and welding mask and enters garage. Deafening clangs can be heard from miles away*

Sounds like the depths of the sea are going to be populated soon...

I plan to build a underwater base too, but it may take a while (not much free time and 0 experience with kerbal underwater things on my side) :D

Great challenge! I may do it, but it sounds... uh... hard. For example, here is a dialogue from a previous attempt at underwater stuff:

Come, on, get under there, it's made entirely from ore tanks, and there's Mainsails pointed up- why is this so hard? Hey look, we're sinking! Ugh... this is so slow... WHY ARE ROCKET ENGINES SO FLOATY??!!???!!?!??

Revert and Repeat.

I guess I've played way too many other games... no idea we could go underwater.  Just assumed it was insta-death.

This is definitely a challenge I'm gonna have a lot of fun failing at.

I cannot make one, considering that I am going on a vacation. However, if @Pine or another artist would like to make one, then I will be very grateful. :D
