perhaps i am mistaken and there are just two base that are a lot alike but if i am correct this image right here is the one that made me become a cave baser(well, until the rwys beta when i abandoned most of my worlds and just started playing nomadic in tropical experience)

May very well be so. I do remember I've posted it in another thread some time ago, a general bases-design one like present I believe; but that topic disappeared. I think it got archived because lack of interaction. Perhaps this topic will survive longer. Seems if OPs of such threads don't keep them alive somehow, usually with posts of their own (and/or their friends), they don't get much traction. About 3 years ago, "legit" (actual game-play as opposed to just spawning stuff via console commands/Creative in God Mode) base designs were popular, most likely because DST was fairly new. In time interest dwindled. If I'm not mistaken even @NSAiswatchingus made a base-design topic in recent past (as in last year?!). But DST is getting pretty old by now, not much innovation people are willing to think and experiment with by this point. Who knows..

I as well for last year-and-some stopped doing bases at all. Mostly 'cause personal servers don't interest me anymore and Endless pubs where I played were either resetting before I got to finish my work (aka reaching a base form I was glad with for print-screen) or the dedicated server disappeared completely in the meanwhile. For last year I've done mostly short Survival pub sessions, punctual rushes (bosses, ruins, Moon, Pearl, just fishing etc) via nomadic play-style, but after 3 times at the end of last year of being spawn-killed by traps (Walls/Fossils pens and spawned Tentacles inside/all around pen on 2 separate EU servers) I've ditched Survival public rooms too. Atm am trying something on a friend's personal server - hope some nice new print-screen designs will come out of it to share. If present thread won't get nixed as well...

I don't often put much of a 'design' to bases myself but yesterday in this public server, our Wendy player was pretty into designing so she went with these simple square spaces around the oasis and it shaped quite nicely. I guess with walls, pathways and decorative items, this method can make pretty bases quite easily.

I didn't start the thread but kept a close eye on it looking for inspiration. I do kind of miss the days when everyone wanted to show off their megabases they built off a checklist. 

Edit: my favorite base design I've made. Center of Imperator City.

If you position them just right you can fit 7 drying racks on a single boat.

Yes, I finally get to give you a shoutout! I remember you posting this image some time ago and feeling really inspired, but later I ended up forgetting who had posted it.

My bases used to be overly symmetrical, almost in a grid, and your beautiful base here motivated me to break out of that rut, and it's still my favorite base setup I've seen.

Here's the one I'm currently working on (But after seeing your base again I'm still itching for the vibe I get from yours.)

Oh, and disregard Chungus on the top right. It's from the Chungus mod.

im still trying to decide between these two for play in public servers once i always do the same structures just to play a few hours 

In this printscreen im on creative mode so its kinda impossible to have all this stuff in this early

What u guys think?? Left or right?? the right one has more stuff but in the left one these stuff will be builded side by side in a mirror effect, this one expanded to sides, not in a long way as the right one

My fav is a convoluted mess that maybe I will clean up someday but not now

Admittedly it’s what I usually fall into. I always usually have a “temporary base” before making a serious base around a few hundred days in. Making a small base would be more pretty, but A. I’m tearing the temporary base down anyways the moment I get established, and B. At minimum, you really only need some crock pots, science/magic, an ice box, turf, and a lightning rod to get by. Other stuff is helpful, but it isn’t always required. I especially don’t make chests until I get established, as a floor storage works pretty well early on and chances are you not much is going to be destroyed when left on the ground anyway, unless it’s minerals if it’s in the caves.

So yes, while I do enjoy making bases, I’m not in a rushing mood to get them started. Here’s a picture of my current 9000+ day world on ~day 140, for a quick reference :P

In pubs, if you make the communal base with purpose of sustaining many players, you'll more-or-less have to feed most if-not-all people coming in. Thus, naturally, you should go with the setup best suited to "mass produce" food - aka one in right. From my experience is actually not hard to obtain in first 20 days all that you have there doing "multi-purposing": basically you gather needed materials while doing a solo DF run, with some small detour to one of the Broken Ancient Pseudoscience Station for Starcaller Staff. Still the plot-farms space seems to me kinda excessive - a 2x 4x4 should suffice (having Berry Bushes included, fillers are mostly assured). GL in your endeavors, public runs are quite fun! (well, minus the griefers that is)
