IMPORTANT: to fully appreciate this project, you MUST use SMP's 2263 texture pack and McPatcher's "connected textures" function! Download link here.

Well, here's my latest, and biggest build yet: the famous Battlestar Galactica, flagship of the famous TV show of the same name. This beast took me a heck of a long time, and is far from finished. Stay posted, updates, prettier renders and screenshots will come soon(ish)!

High-definition render

Before you say "OliverFrenchie took credit for it", he is my official PR person/redditor. So yeah, he can post links and videos. You too, if you link this post :)

Project infos:


Completion:

Outer hull: almost complete, the only things needed being the details of the lower engines section, and overall finishing touches, straightening of crooked curves, etc.

Interiors: see "features" section



Time spent building:
4 and a half months

Ship dimensions: around 1400 x 500 x 200 blocks

Block count: 5,043,664 and growing


Please note that this is only a small sample, if you download and explore the ship, you will discover a lot more!

Flight pods
- Landing Bay:

KgSSpng

Once in the landing bay, you can access the passenger tubes via doors, regularly placed on the side of the bay. There, lifts will take you to the hangar deck.

- Hangar Deck:

From above...

And from below. (notice the elevator platform, that can transport fighters and shuttles to and from the landing bay)

One of the many launch tubes control rooms:

And a Viper ready to be launched.

Main Hull
Corridors, corridors, lots of corridors:

UcOnpng

Ship causeway (what they use to transfer ships from one flight pod to the other):

uXXpng

Passenger causeway: this big corridor houses several carts, that allow people to cross the whole length of the ship, from the "alligator head" to the engines. Skilled raptor pilots can also try and lose Cylon fighters there (Blood&Chrome).

FTL drive core:

More to come!


From the BSG wiki:


Galactica (BS 75) is a veteran battlestar and the last of her kind still in service with the Colonial Fleet at the time of the destruction of the Twelve Colonies. Built during the early days of the Cylon War, she remains the only military vessel without integrated computer networks. Without networked computers, Galactica never upgrades to the new integrated defense system software developed by Dr. Gaius Baltar and his team. Because of this and other factors, she becomes one of only two known battlestars (the other being Pegasus) to survive the renewed Cylon attack on the Twelve Colonies. At the time of this attack, she was part of the 75th Battlestar Group (BSG-75).
Progress: 55% Complete

Update #3 : 01/15/2013 5:13:54 pm1/15/13

- Ship causeway (bow): junction complete between starboard and port flight pod
- Passenger causeway; almost complete (it's just missing the carts and some places to park them)
- FTL drive core (bow): almost complete (mushroom blocks need fixing, passenger causeway needs camouflaging. Will do later.)

Update #1 : 12/15/2012 12:24:51 pm12/15/12

Work started on the flight pods interiors:

- Landing bay: 75% complete, needs finishing touches, smaller ships, and lighting.
