    I was pretty proud of my latest base of operations, the Autobot City Metroplex!

    I took a couple screenshots to show it off. It's a fully functional city with multiple rooms, lighting, safe from monsters, etc.

    Completely toy accurate and to scale as best as I could with the building options available.

    The rocket launchers below the helipad work (they shoot arrows) and I plan to add red stone operations for closing the main ramp door eventually.

    The helipad sticker art was fairly hard to get right in Minecraft but I think I pulled it off nicely. Robot made was added behind the city. I may eventually retexture it as Metrotitan.

    I plan to tackle Fort Max, Trypticon, and Scorponok city's also at some point.

    Enjoy;

    Also now present, ROBOT MODE and interiors of that build. Robot mode is a glory to behold and hilariously makes a much more useable base than city mode. I updated my city to match the details I added to robot mode. Enjoy;

    Glorious Robot Mode;

    Heh, I have the PC version but I did this on my Xbox version. I tend to play it more since I can relax on the couch while doing it. It was a little time consuming but not awful.

    Glad you like it. Metroplex is one of my faves so I wanted to do him right :)

    This is all kinds of awesome. I'd love to visit your world. Also, what'd you make the white parts out of?

    The white parts are iron blocks. You can tell by the little grey stripes. Anyways, this is one of the best things I've ever seen.

    Yup, he's mostly made of Iron. I thought it was fitting plus it looked the best to match his white. The windows are made of either Diamond or Glass (or both) depending on the tower. The Helipad was made with Gold and Obsidian. I used Bricks for the six gun part of the tower but I later replaced it with Red Wool because I thought it wasn't red enough. You can't see the robot mode shoulder stickers from these pictures but I used Glow Stone and Obsidian to mimic those stickers. Theres some Lapis for the toes and Red Wool for sticker details and I used plain Stone for the thighs.

    Most of the rooms are interconnected. You can get in to the thighs and groin (that sounds wrong) from the repair bays on either leg and then ladder your way up to the chest, towers, and helipad/rocket defense areas. I'm glad everyone loves it as much as I do. I can't wait to do his robot mode later. I plan to make that a functional "city" also, well more of a tower really.

    I probably will do Fort Max next since I know more about the toy. I never owned Trypticon or Scorponok so I will have to rely on photos. If anyone wants to invite me to their world sometime I would be happy to help you build your own, or help. I only play sporadically in the evenings though after my daughter is in bed.

    question:Now that you've done it once how long would it take you to rebuild it at another location?

    I dunno, probably 2-3 hours. Depends on if the land needs cleared or not. This guy leaves a big foot print.

    I think world edit could handle the leand clearing just fine. Once we get the server running again we'll talk about building it there

    This has inspired me. I'm going to have to build a Metrotitan base on our FTB server now. Thought about doing Trypticon instead, but his colors, meh... Nice job you did.

    This is why HMS needs to start opening up their games to modders.

    Great job!
