After months of planning and building, the Quarter Scale Star Destroyer is finally finished!! Standing at 440 meters long, 254 meters wide, and 124 meters high, this is the largest project I have ever completed in Minecraft. I don't think my computer could handle hosting a server for people to see it, so I'll just upload the schematic for all to see. Thanks for the support!
Youtube video and schematic uploaded! If you plan on using the Star Destroyer in a picture or video, please give me some credit. I'm not asking for much, just a simple "This star destroyer was built by TheFro2".
Complex, Destroyer, Star, Star Destroyer, Star Wars, TheFro2, Wars
24269 Coal (since it smelts 8 cobble per piece) 211978 Mined Stone (Smooth Stone + Cobble) 41076 Diamond (9 Diamonds = 1 Solid Diamond Block) 3528 Lightstone Dust (9 Lighstone Dust = 1 Lightstone block)
Looks like I'm going to have to hunt for a server that is willing to let me build there.
Well that was unexpected... : 01/28/2011 6:53:19 pm1/28/11
I just found out that the admin of the server where I was building the SD has closed the server. He says he is tired of running a server. I respect that, so now I am in the process of finding another server. I may just build it in single player. God help me if I do...

The admin of the server was kind enough to dig out a massive hole for me to build in. However, it came with a price: RAM. The server is having a hard time dealing with this unexpected loss in a huge amount of blocks, so the building process will be delayed some more.

Finito!! I have just finished the plans for the Star Destroyer! And now comes the most difficult part of the project: building it.

Success! What may possibly be the second most difficult part of the ship has been completed! Now I move on to what I consider the most difficult: the rear of the ship. Yes, I know. You are probably thinking "Well, Fro. I thought you already did this part." Actually, I have not. I have only done the engines. In case you didn't know, there is a slanted/caved-in back of the ship that sort of completes the exterior. I shall be working on this one sometime in the near future. I am so close! After the rear is finished, I shall add a few minute details.... and then build the %&$@ thing!!

Edited the bridge/command center. It is now ~20 meters longer and has the deflector shields and communications tower added. If you don't follow Star Wars and yet somehow are reading this, it's the round thingies and bar thingy at the top of the hexagonal thingy.
Progress is getting along a little better than expected. Should be able to finish the design in a few weeks. Then it's all uphill from there. :)

I feel like I haven't updated my progress in a while, so I uploaded a pic of what has been accomplished so far. The verdict? Not much has been accomplished lol.
Expect a delay in progress as I am just now starting my second semester of college this year.

Do you know how hard it is to make straight lines and edges on a starship with one meter cubes? Extremely hard. This thing is going to take a very, very, very long time to complete. And I have to return to college in only three days. So expect delays.

Finished the engines. I'm quite proud with how the look, to be honest. Uploaded a picture of them.
Update #1 : 01/02/2011 12:00:00 pm1/02/11
Started work on the engines. Shouldn't take too long, especially since I have a week left for break.
