Hampture Update for 2/24/2019: Hamster Indoctrination Machine


Let me know in the comments what videos to include in the playlist! The iPod has 16 gigs so there's quite a bit of room, with the videos edited down to the same resolution as the screen. I will keep working on the smaller of the two media players and hopefully figure out what render settings will produce a video that actually plays on it sometime in the near future.

Hampture Update for 2/15/2019: MADE TUNNLES


Sorry for being a day late! The drill bit on my hole saw broke, you'll see in the video. Also sorry about the low resolution, I had the render settings set incorrectly. On the upside the actual process of adding water tight docking collars to both habitats went about as smoothly as I could possibly ask for. Stay tuned for details about the upcoming contest!

Hampture Update for 2/7/2019: Getting Ready to Cut Holes

By dumb luck it turns out I can partly disassemble the gate valves and mount them perfectly flush to the habitat wall without boring a huge messy hole, and thanks to included o-rings, possibly without needing silicone sealant except for where the bolts penetrate.

Hampture Update for 2/1/2019: TUUUUUBES

Showing the newly arrived gate valves and tubing that will connect them, explaining how I intend to connect and disconnect the habitats while submerged without flooding them.

Hampture Update for 1/26/2019: Flex Seal Acquired

You asked for it, I got it. It will be going on over a topical application of a credibly recommended industrial sealant however just to be doubly sure, then will come the second leak test. The road to Hampture is fraught with as many perils as life has doors, Ed boy.

Hampture Update for 1/12/2019: Leak Testing

Round one of tub testing, possible Flex Seal sponsorship and troubling problems with my ride. What will the future bring? Can flex seal stop the leak? What doth life??

Hampture Update for 1/7/2019: More Megahab Construction Progress!

Finishing up the ballast pod mounting process. Next up is either mounting the heated floor pad inside, or cutting out the hole in the lid for the ceiling window. In the meantime, check out those articles on the Patreon page!
