    There are several reasons why we at Foxden believe that we have the best base on the map. We may not have the biggest claim, but I feel we've worked well with it. We decided to make our base in form of a spaceship, which fits in nicely with the theme of this map. The ship itself is extremely detailed. Made with the block pallet of quartz and cyan clay, our ship is fitted with the two guns on both sides of the ship, with three jets on the back. It's a real eye catcher. Inside there are an assortment of chests and manual brewers, and our faction end portal. We also have a skeleton spawner up there, which is used regularly. However, the ship isn't all there is to the base. Far from it. Hidden from plain site, we have a very large underground area which is big enough to house all of our factions needs. We have multiple farms (livestock, crop, sugar cane, nether wart and tree) and a potion room with an autobrewer that supplies us with whatever potion we desire at the push of a few buttons. We have 3 grinders (two spider and one zombie) which is extremely efficient for events like KoTH and Palace as it makes for lots of XP so armour is easier to repair. Along with all these necessities we have incorporated an amazing amount of detail with our build. We based the underground around the idea that it was some sort of ancient alien ruin, and I feel we have presented this idea successfully. Our main block choice was endstone and sandstone, however we also used blocks such a lapis to add variation at certain parts. We have a beautiful room dedicated to our ender dragon egg, which we fought hard for at the start of the map. We hope you enjoy the base tour.

    Whilst embodying the ideals of friendship and trust, Carebear launched into Map 18 with ambitious goals and relentless determination. In our quest to enjoy the map in every way possible, we created a functional base to not only facilitate a large group of players, but to allow our builders infinite creativity in whatever they wanted to create. Throughout Carebear base you will see extensive detail and care put into every single room and corner of our base. Each room, such as the Spider Grinders, End Portal Room, or Nether Portal room, shares a similar theme to the rest of the base, yet embraces unique characteristics to make that part of the base fresh and creative. Almost our entire base is located deep underground, so everything had to be dug out block by block. Even though it may appear as if all our efforts were put into the base, our faction is not a sedentary one. Our base is located near active KOTH zones where fights are always taking place, and we regularly fight against large factions. As such, you will see incredibly amounts of functionality imbedded into every aspect of our base. We hope Carebear base inspires you in your own builds and that you enjoy it as much as we do!

    -Description: Now I tried basing the outside of my base off of the tv show Terra Nova. The inside is just a jungle theme. I worked hard on the walls and the very bottom floor (the floor with the nether portal).

    Well first of all, we decided to go with the Candy Kingdom theme even before the Base Build Contest was announced, and stuck with it all through-out the map, not knowing how it'd turn out. Every room was decorated individually, we spent a lot of time on little details that might not be seen by the general public, such as the end throne in the main corridor. We used 2 main building blocks, sandstone and wool. These blocks were used all over the base, not only the surface, making the base look good as a whole. Every part of the base had to respect 2 themes: The CandyKingdom theme, which we had to merge with the respective use of each part of the base. That was a task we were able to execute quite well, making the transitions from one area to another seem a lot more fluent. For instance, our hub is home to 12 different storage areas, each built not to obstruct the openness of the hub, but yet represent which blocks/items it was supposed be home of.
    We also used a bit of redstone in our builds, mainly the farms. The big crop farm has a timer which is supposed to let the water only flow as long as it takes the drops to collect in the hoppers.
    As for traps, we didn't install any because we regularly handed out flyers telling people to visit us, and trapping those people would be a bit scummy.
    The Kingdom turned out better than expected, and visitors got so frequent that a Strip Club opened its doors outside the walls, making a lot of profit for their greedy owner LLE2. Feel free to check it out, it's open to the public, and features it's own statue of Jesus who can actually magically spawn zombies!

    Our base is the best because, our base is based on a Nordic Theme. We fighted about who was going to build the Building, afther we did it with 4,5 people working on it in the beginning. Me (Like_A_Bear_Z) and TarzanTim (Left the faction) builded the cobble box, We got camped for so long because we we're building the box, then people saw us build it, we had to ask ohana to counter raid so we could finish the box. And make the building.
