This is the Federation starship USS Titan from the book series of the same name. The Titan is a Luna class starship commanded by Captain William T. Riker and has an extremely diverse crew. The exterior of the model is a 3D conversion, although it has been heavily modified from when I started. This ship is still a work in progress.

Features:

*Warp Core - I'm using a new type of warp core in this ship that uses the falling sand entity. There is an on/off button and a speed control.
*Bridge - The bridge features framed map decorations for the computer consoles and viewscreen. There are also some blinking lights.
*Turbolift system - The turbolifts are functional and can be used to navigate the ship easier.
*Shuttlebay - The big shuttlebay in the saucer section is not found in any description of this ship. I added it because I thought the rear shuttlebay was a bit small.

The captain's yacht is a modified version of blibbob's Sovereign Class Captain's Yacht. It is located one deck below the battle bridge.

What program did you use to make LCARS?

How I made the LCARS displays:
- Find or create the image you want and scale it down to 128 x 128 pixels.
- I recolored mine so there wouldn't be any dithering when they are converted to the Minecraft map color scale. I used Gimp to convet them to indexed color mode using a color table with only the map colors.
- Convert the finished image file to NBT format for use in the map .dat file. I had to create my own little program to do this, but it is much easier now with the new version of Map Item Editor.
- Back in minecraft you can summon a copy of the new map with the command "/give @p minecraft:filled_map 1 XXX" where XXX is the map number.

The Map Item Editor is really the only tool you need. I always set the coordinates of the map to somewhere far away so it won't be overwritten.

I just saw that in the .dat file of the world. Thats a great idea, I never thought about this use for a map. I used the map editor once for the bulletin of a ship but I never had the Idea to use them as LCARS displays. Do you mind if I use some of the maps for a project that I currently work on? I will of course link to this project!

Could you maybe change the colours of an image I have? I found a great Image of the master system display of the odyssey class and I am able to scale it down and cut it into pieces, but I couldn't figure out how I can change the colors so that they don't change when I convert them. Or could you maybe explain it to me?

If you don't have a texture pack I can make one for you that will not change your ships at all just change the primary blocks you use for consoles

The control panels look like a texture pack but are really framed maps. I like using the default texture pack whenever possible. Maybe someday if they add the option to include the texture pack in the map file I might start using them.

Hey dude I can easily make a small texture pack you can use for all your ships basically making the doors have a starfleet design, jukeboxes note blocks and crafting tables will have a console design and maybe a couple other blocks if you wish, I can make weapons such as the bow look like typical star trek weapons, armour will be star fleet uniforms and paintings can look like either control panels or just a Star Trek painting and that is pretty much all I will do just to make it look better and maybe if you want ill will change the glass so it is more clear so you can see normally straight through
all this is only if you want and I promise it won't be hard and I probably am going to make it anyway because everything looks a bit weird if I don't 
thx

That sounds good. My biggest problem with most texture packs is that they change too much. Only changing things like the doors and special decorative blocks would be something I would use.

Well, the ship isn't quite finished yet so you will find a lot big empty spaces, but the bridge should be a complete room with two openings in the front and two doors at the back (basically what's shown in the pictures).

There are a couple of ways of doing it. The easiest way is to build the image as pixel art and map it. There is also a program called Map Item Editor, but I haven't had much luck with the new version. The method I used is a bit more complicated. I used an image editor called The Gimp to get images to the right size (multiples of 128) and then convert them to the color palette that maps use. Then I clean it up a bit (I usually use MS Paint for that). The next step is to convert the image to a binary text file (I made a my own program for that). Finally I use NBT edit to import that data into a map file.

I'm using the most current Minecraft version (1.7.4) with no mods. The only unusual things about this build are the high number of item frames and a redstone clock that continuously sets the weather to clear. I can't think of anything else that would cause it to crash.

I did a quick checkup on your yacht, I've found one or 2 things a little off that i'm sure would be a quick fix.

The landing gear wiring is broken, so if you check under the floor in the cockpit area there should be some wiring for the gear. Also one other problem that stops the shuttle taking off (I've seen this a lot on ships with yachts/shuttles), there are blocks that aren't stone touching the yacht that will "cling on" (pun intended) and follow the yacht or stop it moving, so make sure the yacht only touches stone. Other than that, I think the yachts in full working order :)

scrap that bit about the stone, just spotted it was modified, certainly bigger. I'd put the block cap up to 2000 for it to fly rather than 1300, just for good measure.

Thanks for the suggestions, I didn't check the landing gear after I added the wings. I haven't been able to get the Zeppelin mod to work for a while now, I'm hoping it gets updated soon.

By the way, the Odyssey is 138 blocks tall, which would be 27 decks.

MCP would be happy to take it on, though that'l be one helluva project. Judging by how long it took to do the cuda' (still needing lighting that has somehow been left for 3 months while other ships have been started), i'd have to say a few months at least to get the ship looking.. ship shape. I'd say this ship would class as 3 or 4 ships due to the larger amount of decks and it being a kilometer long.

[size=10pt]How many decks does this thing have anyway?[/size]

I meant the oddy lol, but i share your pain with the whole "can't fit in all the decks" problem. I mean when i'm doing the shell manually I usually ignore height measurements and go by decks just so i can fit in what's in the ship, but if i'm filling a shell, which usually goes by the proper height measurements with Borg accuracy, it's more challenging to sort out the decks imo.
