    Something I did with an idea where I wanted to use a lot of color (and some of my many many stained glass tiles) and lots of books.
    It is #397 in the HoF, under Creativity / Recent, Actual Address is Shanette's Research Sanctum, Qeynos Prestige Portal, for anyone who wants to see firsthand.
    But first, some pictures!...

    There is also a surprise waiting in the breakout area for visitors, not pictured. Portal is located at the entrance.

    WOW! Since I sort of glossed over the text bit at the beginning, wanting to jump into the pix, I didn't realize it was a Researcher's Sanctum until that "Bigger Seating Area with a view" shot! Talk about a complete re-skin! I'm definitely gonna have to visit this soon! :)

    who didn't do that much with Abe's Sanctum on Test; just made the region where you have your Bigger Seating Area into a detachable battleship/balcony...and it's still a WIP after the contest ;->

    I adore how you made "Reading Rainbow" come to life with the clever way the books and shelves are in there with all those rainbow colors. Excellent. :D

    If you've never been in a Researcher's Sanctum, I can guarantee you this: unless she blocked off the "built-in" stuff in the main default library, the surface of sheer numbers of volumes there hasn't even been scratched yet. :D

    who could also live in a place where the very pillars holding up the ceiling are bookshelves... :)

    I actually did block that big round section off. =( I had actually planned on doing something with it, but alas, item count and I had a disagreement about it. :/

    I have issues decorating a place that's already really well-themed from the get-go into something completely different (I admire the complete re-skinning folks!), so my Researcher's Sanctum is probably really dull. ;-> I just used the four rooms in the "entry way" as storage for the "crew" and inhabitants, put down four teleport pads to various locations, a carpet or two, a few tiles and some explanatory books (this is on Test, where we don't really have a lot of Rares available for house actors). The main item usage came from my idea to make the balcony a separate thing, literally, though it's old tech, prone to high maintenance needs, and is Gnome/Erudite-run with a Sarnac main decorator. X-P

    But the emphasis there is on protecting the books after an apocalypse. ;->

    Hehe necro-post, but yet, this truly is a lovely build even if it is an older one. :)

    She's a Time Lord as well as a Super Hero!
  19. Uwkete-of-Crushbone Well-Known Member

    Heh, Time Lords ARE super least the nice ones (which seem to be the ones that do the most travelling away from Gallifrey, travel broadening the mind ;->).

    All the more reason for The Powers to get us a REAL SEARCH FUNCTION for Housing... X-P
