I have made the spawn for my city but I am struggling on what else/how else to build. I am also struggling on decorations for this place since there is a lot of empty space to put stuff. I would appreciate any help/ideas on what to build and cool way of doing it
How about some docks for any type of transportation you imagine the city uses, which depends on your theme I guess? Submarines? Turtles? Whatever you think fits!
You can also figure out more things to build by asking questions about the city: What do they do there? How do they live? Do they work? Party? Eat? Do magic? Research? And so on. The answers should give plenty of ideas to work with.
I would love to see some pictures as you progress! Pictures would also help anyone to give you better and more accurate advice!
This is the beginning of the city. The big dome is the spawn area whilst the smaller dome leads to housing for the resident. I am setting this build in the future where the land above is too toxic for humans so they were forced to move underwater. However I am struggling on deciding if want to make the houses underground with skylights to the ocean (the tow glass squares at bottom right, or if I should make a underwater building. Would appreciate any feedback on this
I would go for both underground and on the bottom! I think this mix would look really really awesome! Skylights will show the interconnectedness between the buildings above the seafloor, and these can extend down under with elevators or whatnot! I hope you like this idea!
Trying to illustrate a bit with ASCII, O are above seafloor, = || indicate skylights from underground builds and passages!
Would love a world download to check out your build!
Lights. Lots of different light blocks. Make patterns with them.
Also: Air locks. Or your city floods. ^ ^
Make an underwater zoo. With squid and guardians.
Make a blue whale.
Grow underwater plants. Make an algae farm.
Build a power plant: Make solar cells on the surface and have them electrolytically separate water into hydrogen and oxygen for storage. Build tanks to store both gasses. Build a large fuel cell to power your city at night. (e.g. make it glow up when the light detectors detect darkness)
Then of course nice housing units and a park. People need nature or they'll go crazy.
Make a cinema.
And a ballroom like this. (You need to jump to 9:50 - I don't know how to link without the video being embedded and starten at the beginning.)
It's from an awesome german sci-fi series from the 60s. They used household appliances as props and it is so retro that it's great again. And the dialogues and acting were amazing.
