GH Aquatic Observatory Alpha is a player base.
Summary[edit | edit source]
This base is essentially a "reverse aquarium," allowing players to observe Juan Prime's native aquatic species, both flora and fauna, in their natural habitat. This observatory is especially suited to provide views of aquatic predators feeding on their prey.
Features[edit | edit source]
Two or three B. Tetradiffis (Spearhead Juan Sharks) can usually be found in the area around the observatory. These sharks are too well-fed by the abundant population of smaller fish to attack players often. K. Clayarea fish are probably the most abundant of these smaller species, followed by the significantly rounder N. Woofmeidoe species. Slightly less common are the D. Scariolis (Ornate Kelp Jellies), although these too may be spotted in the area around the observatory, occasionally swimming right past a viewing area. The location of the observatory was specifically chosen due to the high activity of Spearhead Juan Sharks preying on smaller species; kills by these sharks, which release green-colored blood into the water, can be frequently witnessed by players from within the observatory.
- Upper Levels: 4 landing pads, Teleporter, non-native decorative coral, connection between submerged / non-submerged portions of the base, upper aquatic viewing platform.
- Main Level: 5 main viewing platforms, connected in both a cross and a square shape by glass viewing tunnels. 4 of the viewing platforms (at the borders of the square/cross) contain moon pools to enter/exit the water from. Galactic Hub emblems are displayed above the central connecting platform.
- Lower Level: Viewing platform with 4 waterproof doors to enter/exit the seabed area from. Non-native decorative crystals and coral can be found in this viewing platform.
- Seabed / Exterior: Message modules providing information about native flora; exterior lighting for better night-time visibility (designed for minimal interference with natural night-time lighting from bioluminescence). Racetrack. Dedicated Communications Station area (near standalone marine shelter).
Additional information[edit | edit source]
This base contains one of the first, if not the first, Nautilus racetrack. The race initiator was placed underwater using the simple "build-then-swap" glitch.
