Level 77 : Legendary Boss
After years of enforced peace brought about by their Ironclad class airships, the empire has grown decadent and opulent on the riches of peace.

Overwhelming firepower has been traded for speed and utility, with the dawntreader class being a new form of airship; one meant for luxurious travel for the military elite of the Empire.

The Dawntreader is the fastest ship of its size, what makes this ship unique is the fact it is fully submersible in water, it is just as comfortable in the fathoms of the deep as it is soaring above the clouds.

Built with a reinforced hull and kept afloat with a new oxygen/nitrogen mix; this combination allows full access for occupants inside the zeppelin balloon itself.

Piloted by the legendary Captain Wingviper

------------------

For this build, I wanted to explore a more mechanical side of steampunk; and one that is actually steam powered.

Build time: 7 hours
texture pack: custom remix download : http://www.mediafire.com/?lk4df1h4c4c46q6

Built on the Team Vareide server.
Thanks to Ragnog Le Bonbon for pasting the ship into a void map (ILU RAG)

That was actually really, really good - the story and characters were great, and you utilised the props very well.

I'd be interested in seeing more!

I'll sub you on PMC, and if you like, I can put the link to your video in the description of this project.

archimedes ships only has 16x16x16 blocks, and this i think is 100+ blocks long. also, what the FUCK gave you the idea that an inanimate object would move? the only things classed as moving objects in minecraft are the ugly 'redstone flying machines' for minecraft 1.8

Everything is very smooth and fluent while my builds are always a bit more sharp, like with some edges off.

Great build but I like the ironclad more :)

I love the picture with the moon and space. And the ship is also very good, but.. (im not sure if i can give criticism to someone like you anyways :p) I feel it is again another steampunk airship with the same balloon shape. It is not really special and outstanding to me. I'd prefer if someone with your building skills puts like 2 months or even more, in 1 project, and then puts out something amazing. But if you just want to harvest xp, which i don't think is your aim, then this is a good way i suppose.

haha, criticism is always welcome; but this is definitely not for XP.

I realise there are a lot of airships in minecraft - but my aim in minecraft has always been to have fun and build for myself. I've never built for other people's recognition or to make a name for myself - I simply build because it's fun - and airships are incredibly fun to make ;) I also like to share the things that I make with other people from time to time :P

The problem with building for other people is that they expect your next project to be better than your last (I've spoken with a lot of well known builders within the minecraft community and this seems to be a big problem) - it puts them off from sharing their smaller projects with people because they feel they're 'not big or epic enough'.

At the end of the day, minecraft is just a game and you should build what is fun for you - not other people ;)

But I do welcome the criticism ;) I know this isn't my best work - but I wanted to share it with the community as I knew some people would enjoy it. I do have many bigger projects I'm working on though ;)

Yay! Im looking forward to that, and i understand that. :) Val Queros was my biggest project (which now seems too much patterns and chaotic, im learning :p) and then i put out a spooky and candy island :p So that is basically also what i do. And if you like to build airships then you should do that! You will always be one of the best builders in minecraft!
