and my Friends: eposx and Stefan0406
Eposx is the Engineer and the Head of this project. He knows how to do it :D
Are going to make in Tekkit a Spaceship that can realy fly!
We will try our best! We tough need a name of it! If you know a name send it in and maybe
your name will be picked as the name of the Ship!
We are building it on a Tekkit server called OceanCraft.
Our Current Progress:
Eposx gave me homework.. I needed to make alot of Frames! Casue its annoying to keep making them I decided to make a small Machine that will make it.
See the Pictures.
Picture 1: The Start of the Base of Operations
Picture 2: The Update of the Base of Operations including the Brass Ingot machine. (Used for the Frames)
Picture 3: The Ammount of frames we have (We might have more now)

We've come a little further and we like your comments.
We reale Appriciate it.
On the first picture you see our wrecked base of operations.
Well we needed space for the space ship so we moved it in a mountain base nearby.
It origionaly was used for Stormy Weather. The owner said he installed a plugin with Nuke storms and Cataclyst Hails. Very terrible for our stuff I tought.
So since we needed space we used this as our new base.
The last picture contains a giant cube of Frames.
As I think I said before each frame can take 1 block with it. This is sort of the Heart of the Ship. Its not going to be a cube we made a design. Here we put all the Engines and Battery's. My friend has made the design in Singleplayer and it worked fine. How we can make it fly is, We move the frames so it goes foreward and backwards.
But if you look it like this you have to come foreward by pushing a button. We planned to make a timer. Tough the timer doesn't work so good. It doesn't seem to tick correctly... Someone have a idea? Anyway we will try it our best. Thanks for commenting.

I will take a picture soon. It will look weird but this is just the form.
There can be 1 block attatched to a Frame which takes it with it. We are making a giant cube of it first. We will fill it with Redpower Battery Boxes. We made some tests on SIngleplayer. If we got enough battery boxes (Like REALY Much) We can have power for a IRL Year! But that takes alooooong time.
We also made some tests with a other Spaceship. It worked! If we have the materials, we are all set.
Its strange and dificult to think up with a good plan for it. I mean... We cant steer. We can go only go foreward down and up. Thats why we made a special design which has a small cockpit at the bottom. We can go foreward, down and up. If we want to go to a diffrent direction, we just go to another control panel!
We will try to make more progress soon. But its a survival server and we have to do it Legit. Sadface.sigh... XD
Anyways.. Stay tuned for more. More Pictures will follow.
We are planning to make a server dedicated to this project. We are only talking about it. We are not sure if we realy are going to do it.
