Ladies and gentlemen... I declare, and present to you

~H.M.S VICTORY 1:1 full interior 1805 replica~ Minecraft Map
Description / Background
I started this project back in early october, and it's such a relief to finally be able to upload it. Because of what happened to the server I was working on at the time, I lost about 30-40 hours of work on this ship, which was a huge kick in the preverbial morale. And because the server was lost, that used special plugins I was also unable to continue working on it until just before I uploaded the ghost ship a few weeks ago. But here it is :) All 100 guns accounted for.

Deciding to build this ship was a decision that I at first didn't really consider, there were so many people who had allready built the Victory and I had the preference to build ships that hadn't been built before or at least not alot, like the Soleil royal, wapen von Hamburg etc.. But as I became more and more knowledgable about ship construction, interior layout and everything that it entails, it sort of grew at me and since I do like to build replicas I guess it was only natural that I build the one 18th century ship that actually still exists, where it is possible to within a very high degree, make an accurate replica.

And I'd be impressed if you find a more accurate version of the Victory anywhere. I usually keep track of my build hours and somewhat of the research time I put into my ships and then make a fairly narrowed estimate which I then post here on my projects. But in this case I just havn't been able to keep track of the hours. Researching this has been a joy but also a pain, and it's been at least as much research as it has been building. I estimate around 100-120 hours for this project but tbh I could be way off.

You would think that, since this ship sits in almost prime condition in Portsmouth dockyard, that there would be no problem to finding accurate blueprints and video/photos of pretty much everything in and on the ship. But oh no.. Sure there are blueprints, but they are never ever consitent with each other. I do wish that I had money to actually travel to england to see it for myself but alas, the internet and a book that I bought has been my only sources. Luckily with enough digging one can find some pretty small details buried in the cyberdust. I've used everything from Official blueprints and Hand built scale models, to 100 year old literature and photos / videos to produce the most accurate version as I possibly could. Now I want to make this clear, I build this to be accurate to the year 1805 just before the battle of trafalgar. Since then there have been some modifications and renovations. Sometimes there were inconcistencies between a blueprint and a photograph and in such cases I always tried to go with the real life version as long as I had reason to believe that it hadn't been altered since 1805.


Some history
This Victory, which is actually the fifth ship in the brittish navy to bear the name, was launched in 1765 in Chatham, england. Designed by Thomas Slade, she was the pinnacle of navy engineering at the time, with good maneuverablity and speed for her displacement and weight. Good speed meaning 9 knots. She saw combat first in 1778 near Ouessant against the french. Afterwards there were several sea-engagements in shorter sequence, 1781 again Ouessant, followed by 1782 at Gibraltar, 1793 at Toulon, 1794 at Corsica and 1797 at Cape Sao Vicente.
On 18 May 1803 she became the flagship of admiral Horatio Nelson. He achieved two years later, on 21 October 1805, in the battle of Trafalgar the probably most important victory in the naval history of England.

1:1 scale ? sure ? If we have the Victory in real life : lenght =57, draught = 7,5
here you have lenght = 70, draught =12, weird distances

The length is correct :) It depends which part you're meassuring. As for the depth and width, they always get distorted in minecraft. Somehow.

I don't understand it either, but you're welcome to try :) Victory also has a beam of 15 meters, in blocks that looks ridiculous if you keep the same length.

No, thats what I'm saying, going totally according to actual numbers and asuming 1 block = 1 meter in all directions wouldn't be proportional in mc. I use length as primary guide, but width and depth would always be disproportional in mc if you went by real numbers.

Thank you, no not since Justice, but I have been fooling arund with conquest reforged in a small way lately, but idk if I'll come back to ships some day, can't really say, expect not. Regarding fantasy ships, very little chance of that, not really my thing. Without looking at your ship in question it's difficult to tell you how to improve, pm me if you want to discuss further.
