View Full Version : Decommissioned Silo Survival Bunker Project

12-17-2013, 09:31 PM
I began work on this about two weeks ago with the intent of creating the ultimate underground bunker system.

Essentially its a world depth (Approx 120 feet deep and 46 feet wide) reinforced concrete silo.

I'll jump right into it with the beginning of the project which is the foundation for the luxury log cabin that will eventually be built above the silo. This foundation is huge so i may have to scale it back so I'm not trying to build a 5000sf mansion.

I'll drive straight down 120ft to the bottom since the middle of the silo is still empty. This is where apartments will be built.

Water storage ( will probably redesign this so that there are water storage tanks)

HVAC. Properly routed air return and ventilation ducting.
Properly routed hot and cold water lines from reservoir to heating and out to the silo.
Properly routed sewage return line that routes to water treatment and then back to the reservoir

This stairwell took a while. I cored the entire cavity with tnt first. this runs the entire depth of the silo.

The cavity for the silo was demolished with tnt but I pre-sunk each 64 block deep pillar to the bottom of the game world. Pre-sinking each concrete core allowed me to construct the silo first in solid ground. After the silo wall was built It was just a matter of sinking about 20x 64-block deep tnt cores to the bottom then watching the show. Since tnt does not damage reinforced concrete i was left with a beautiful silo.

Quick Question

I've been playing for about a week and it seems to me a lot of the items in your bunker are items that are not craft-able, at least that I can see... the Toilets, ceiling lights, art work, televisions and so on. How did you get these items? We have created a subterranean base (my son and I) and are getting ready to add décor and would love to be able to add some of these items.

Thanks !

PS your Silo is Epic

Awesome work man. Just breathtaking. But please consider giving your employees a little more privacy in the loo.

Thanks everyone. I wish i could have taken some shots of the silo before I added 4 top floors. The raw depth was quite majestic.

Some updates.

All i can say is WOW. Well done it's brilliant ;)

12-21-2013, 12:23 AM
You need an armory bro! Store the explosives in there as well!

12-21-2013, 02:44 AM
You guys know he might've put recipes in. I do that for things. I'm still in Alpha 4 so I put in recipes for Alpha 5 like the crossbow bolt recipe also I have toilets as well fridges cabinets ovens. I live in a bunker underground and it's looking sweet! Of course, the recipes are high cost like 8 ingots for fridge 9 for toilet. By the way, looks prett cool! I'm thinking that I should make a 40x40 hole to bedrock (being worked on) and placing a village at the bottom, that way zombies fall and die, so it's a very peaceful village except for the hornets every once in a while.

12-21-2013, 04:37 AM
Armory! good idea. I wish there were place able weapons :)

I took a break over the holidays. I got back into the project a few days ago. With most of the silo finished aside from entertainment and single apartments I decided to begin on the above ground structure.

The first step is to lay down the support structure for the cabin. I used reinforced concrete.

All done aside from some landscaping.
Keep in mind that this is directly above the silo project. An internal staircase leads to the silo entrance.
Server is called "Desert SW Area51". If you see me online feel free to hop in and check it out.

This is an amazing setup. Really inspiring, but why invite random people? It will get destroyed by griefers!

I keep redundant backups. I think if I lost this project I would /quit.

01-20-2014, 04:45 PM
Added a garage outside with a small utility tunnel that leads to the main structure. Excuse the wide shots. I found building in surround mode is much easier.
On a side note. If the large wood powerpole (I used these for main supports in the house) could me made manipulable they would have the potential to make one beautiful full log cabin.

I decided to re design the roof since it looked too much like a factory roof. I added some geometry (Peaks and valleys). I think it turned out rather nice.

Bad ass, man. IMO, TGP should add this one to the game.

Well done. I have a silo/bunker in a sandstone mountain on a group private server using custom recipes (so i was somewhat limited on materials). I'll put up a video soon. The title caught my eye, but you have taken this to another level.

I like your use of the wooden ladders for the foundation/decoration.

Thanks Laz. I wanted lattice and those were the closest i could find.

I've been tweaking the property a little bit. My goal now is to make it seem a little more complete via small touches.

I finished the basement which is now a rec room.

I redesigned the roof to add more geometry. The gables were also too large so I re constructed them to be less of an eyesore.

Added a sun room/breakfast bar.
Full deck and railing all the way around.

Very nice. 2 questions:

1- Real Life Architect?

2- Hours Invested In Your Build?

02-09-2014, 04:04 PM
Wow...this is truly impressive. I actually made an account here just to tell you how amazing this is. :)

02-10-2014, 09:44 AM
This is truly epic well done!

@ nicky barnes
This is creative mode. It's really amazing how many items they've packed in there. Turn on cheats and press Z. They're "cabinet" and "cabinetTop" in the listing.

@ Bemo Guinness
1. Nope in not an architect. I didn't start with any sort of building plan which cost me many hours. I must have spent 15 hours just tearing town to rebuild/re engineer some of the structure.

2. I haven't been keeping track of actual build time. I do only have the server running when i'm building and am at 131 days so far @ 50 minutes per day cycle. Approximately 10% of that is idle time.

Thanks TITOMOSQUITO187 and AngryDave

Video coming soon when I can get shadowplay working.

02-10-2014, 06:31 PM
Looks amazing so far...

02-14-2014, 02:32 AM
Wow! It would be cool if the map had this kind of NPC safehouse... post apocalyptic base and trading center.

02-14-2014, 03:21 PM
That is just awesome.

02-16-2014, 08:20 PM
Some more small touches. Walkways and landscaping.

So NOW they put horizontal logs into the game! J/k thanks for V6 devs. Now starts the whole log renovation.

That is an amazing build, looks like a Halflife level. I'd love to go clear it with a flashlight and a crow bar.

I'm resurrecting this thread because In effect I'm working on resurrecting this project from alpha5. Hal's land protection and prefab editor has made this possible. I've unearthed this bahemoth to better work on it. Unfortunately many blocks were misplaced and I'm not sure It's recoverable in this state but this is an interesting result non the least.

I'm fairly sure that the block misplacement was a result of placing the alpha5 region files onto a v7.11 save. I would probably have better results if I could manage to load Hal's land protection mod directly onto the alpha5 save then run the export function.

Check it out

This is phenomenal! I just finished reading the Hugh Howey wool omnibus and got chills looking at your silo pics. Can't wait to see your next version!

04-25-2014, 06:26 PM
Thanks Ashby! Seeing it out of It's shell really gives this whole project a grander feel. Still can't believe I built this ingame.

I did manage to get a good export this time around. I still need to trim some voided/invalid blocks but I hope to release this as a prefab once It's 100%. I was hunting around Hal's prefab editor for an option to replace voided blocks with air.

Remind anyone of Subterranean Racoon City? :P

A work in progress. Finding a suitable location for this behemoth was a challenge in itself. Integrating it into the existing terrain was a royal pain.

I just added this as a prefab to my dedicated server. Feel free to check it out It's on the northern border.

Does anyone have a copy of A5 I could steal? Looking to build a conversion map to get this up to date.
