Rhapsody was started ~3 years ago but I only really worked on it for about 4 months before shelving the project. I picked it back up this summer and spent a few more months on it before it was finished. In total, this took ~6-7 months to build if you don't include the 2 years when I wasn't working on it.

This is one of the first steps in the process of finishing all of my ships, both uploaded and yet to be uploaded. The hulls are all getting a makeover to reflect my current black and white style, and all are getting interiors made up of rooms from a modular room series I've been spending most of the past year making in order to more quickly make ship interiors. In addition, the renders of all are being updated to look more uniform and consistent across submissions.

The interiors are one of the most important features of these ships, and the interiors of some of the larger ships I'm still in the process of making are already massive. While a visuals are great, a build doesn't have a whole lot of lasting fun if you can't actually play with it. Because of this, the goal with these ships is to balance the focus given to both large-scale building with the exterior, and player-scale building with the interior. Every window you see is a real window. Every switch or button you come across inside does or will eventually do something (with the exception of ship weapons which I'm leaving out of public downloads).


At the moment there are two versions: the public and prison versions. The exteriors of both are largely the same, however the interiors are completely different. The free public version is in the download provided while the prison version, which contains an interior designed for prison servers, is private. I'll probably make a render of them side by side to give a better idea of the differences.
Actually there are a few more scenes of the exterior that I'm in the middle of rendering which haven't been finished yet, so more pics are coming soon if you think the current ones are too dark/blurry/not enough.

After I finish more rooms in my modular room system, I'll probably revisit this ship and make a third version containing some sort of adventure mode like a minigame or puzzle map.

*******FAQ*******

How do I install this mod?
This is a map, not a mod. Unzip/extract the .zip file into your saves folder and play on Minecraft Java versions 1.11.2 or higher.

Do I have to pay to use the map?
No. While there is a paid-for version on Chunkfactory made for prison-server use, there is a free public version that anyone can download.

How do I download this?
Directly under the images to the right, under the little diamond and heart icons, you'll find a download link.

What mods or texture packs are needed?
No mods or texture packs are needed. This build was specifically intended to be compatible with vanilla Minecraft. That being said, you're always free to add content from your own mods if you think it would make it more fun.

What programs did you use to make this?
I used MCEdit 1 and normal in-game playing to construct it. I used Chunky to render the fancy-looking images and the gif.

How did you make the .gif?
I rendered a low-resolution scene of the front of the ship in Chunky in parallel projection mode, cut off the front 10 layers of blocks and moved the entire ship forward 10 spaces, and reloaded the chunks in Chunky and rendered another image with the same settings. This process was repeated until I made it through most of the ship. Overall I took ~35 low-resolution renders (sounds like a lot more than it actually is)

What's with the redstone under the command bridge?
Those circuits lead to the ship's weapons which have been removed in the public version. Most of them have not been updated to work in current Minecraft versions anyway, so there's not much point for including them even if I wasn't wanting to keep them private.

I found something like a door that I think is broken. What do I do?
Please, please, PLEASE tell me where exactly in the ship it is. If you're using the original world, tell me the coordinates. I'll upload a fixed version asap.

Bug fix update:
Lots of broken doors and circuits have been fixed such as the janitor's closet on the upper levels and the filing room nearby as a few examples. Thank you for telling me about them.
The 'door' in the command bridge that people keep reporting as not having a pressure plate (because it's not a door) has been changed to prevent further confusion.
Signs have been placed around in certain areas to further help direction.

This ship literally radiates awesomeness! The sheer magnitude of it just gives me chills. I really want to include this build in my server, would you let me do so? I will credit you for sure.

Short answer: sure.
Longer answer: There's a tab on my profile page with info about the terms of using my builds.
Ok, I'll check that out. Thanks!

This is incredible!
When I read that you've used MCEdit (combined with the huge size of this thing), I thought there would be much more copy-pasted rooms, but I was pleasantly surprised. The amount of details and unique rooms was way beyond anything I could imagine.
And seeing the redstone system between floors was nice. I'm making a similar system for my own ship at the moment, but I'm trying to connect everything to a single switch, instead of hiding some redstone blocks on green wool (they were fun to hunt, btw). Redstone might be the only thing that's currently more advanced in my ship. From huge scale to clever use of blocks in details this is much better than I could ever build.
Now to check out your other ships...
Great work!

I originally planned to make something similar to what you're describing with the switches and have it be a sort of "engine room" but I started running out of space in this ship and haven't gotten around to adding one yet.

One of the problems I found with it that made me sorta put it on hold is the fact that it starts screwing up the lighting on bigger ships with unloaded chunks. When you turn everything on, a bunch of the farther away rooms won't actually light up even though the redstone lamps are turned on.

Hmm... I'll have to keep that in mind with my ship. Maybe connecting lights to doors, so that each small area lights up when someone enters, and only if the main switch is powered? I'm just barely starting with my owns ship, so I can leave more room for redstone in advance, but I imagine it would be a massive job in a ship that's already packed full of wires...

Hello guys,

I just reproduced this wonderful build in survival on a french server. Here is the link to a forum post where there's some screens of it.

I did not had time to complete the inside because of a reset of the map for the 1.13.

You're replacing the interior? What's it look like?
I also made a really cool sci-fi robot namenamesd V-200
Oh yeah skinseed is a free app you'll have to download it
I got lost its so big lol now I only go to the bridge, the stateroom, and the main hangar or else I'll have to break my way out again
Love this ship though
I made some crew for it on Skinseed, look for End_Master_1000 and I'll have all of them there
I designed the skins to fit the theme of the ship

Here's a rough pic from a while back of the one I'm referring to https://i.imgur.com/GXmClJi.png. Interior hadn't been merged yet and front of the ship hadn't been finished either at the time that was rendered, but that's a general idea of what it'll look like

No idea because they're shelved at the moment. There are a few things I have to finish before I can start working on them again. Also they're a whole lot bigger than this ship so I don't have a reference for how long they should take.

On the bright side though, I was nearly finished with the hull of one of them at the time it was paused, and had built ~a quarter of the interior, so it's a pretty good ways into being completed.

If for whatever reason I decide to cancel it (which isn't likely with how much time I've already sunken into it), I'll upload what I have finished for others to use and possibly complete

I would use a program like MCEdit to paste it into your world. I provided a link to it in the description.

Just to be safe, make a copy of your world before attempting this in case you find out you accidentally pasted over something

Do you know how to get to your saves folder?
If not, I can help you get to it but I'd need to know whether you're using a mac or a PC first.
I dont know even what is a saves folder. I've never downloaded anything like this before so idk what im doing.

Each minecraft world is contained within a folder (which itself contains a few more folders and files). These world folders are placed inside the saves folder located alongside the rest of the files for Minecraft on your computer. If you download the .zip that I uploaded, open it and remove the world folder inside, then place that world folder in your saves folder, you'll be able to play the world in-game.

Here's how to find your saves folder on a mac https://youtu.be/ltQ1s0EHtsU
So i take the entire folder (23 Rhapsody-class Escort Carrier Public Version WOOL 4 is what its called?) and move it to the saves folder (which i found) right?

It should just be called "23 Rhapsody-class Escort Carrier Public Version WOOL". Yeah place that folder in your saves folder.
EDIT: Also, once i get it to allow me to play it in game, how will i know? Will a world just appear or what?

Yup. When you click Singleplayer in Minecraft's main menu, the game checks its saves folder to see what world folders are inside it, and shows them in the Select World menu.
ok i dragged 23 Rhapsody-class Escort Carrier Public Version WOOL 4 folder into minecraft saves folder but then i opened minecraft (All on my mac) the world isnt showing up. I noticed another saves folder called "Minecraft Launcher" maybe i should drag it into that?

The saves folder is named "saves" which should itself be in a folder named "minecraft". If the folder is named anything else like "Minecraft Launcher" then it's not the saves folder.

If you were using the actual saves folder and it still isn't working, look in the folder named "23 Rhapsody-class Escort Carrier Public Version WOOL" and tell me what it has inside it.
I did it! Thx so much for the help! Can't wait to have tons of fun exploring!
Btw sorry for posting so many comments this is my first time downloading anything but a mod and even that i made a mistake with so i had to erase all data on my Mac and start over. Anyway sorry for bugging you.

I cant seem to get it running in my Minecraft world, how to I install and run it in my mc world? Like, I do all the things in the mc launch options but when I load my world, it is nowhere to be found, and I also don't have a saves folder and when I got to extract it and put in my username where it says "yourusername" it doesn't work...

Hello, This is LITTLEOINK9000! I have been downloading your builds for a while now! totally glad that u finally finished my fav ship, the Rhapsody-Class. I was wondering if you could make me a version of the Rhapsody-Class. Instead of blue, it would be green, and instead of white, it will be black. if you do, i hope it is not too much trouble! oh and the front glass Lime green, not dark green. me no like dark green. anyway, i hope it is not too much trouble. pls! This has been LITTLEOINK9000, LITTLEOINK9000, OUT!
I know that you've already said in the post that you don't need any texture packs for this build (which is awesome btw), but out of curiosity, do you have any suggestions for what texture packs to use to make it look more sleek? Thanks for the reply

No idea tbh. The only texture pack I really know about is Faithful which is essentially just a higher resolution version of the default textures, so maybe that might look good.

This is a world, not a mod. Download and open the .zip and put the folder you find in it into your saves folder.
I'm loving the map, but I'm not sure what the huge atrium at the back bottom of the ship is. Could you help me out here? Also, what resource pack do you use?

Another question: What does all the redstone under the bridge do?

If you're talking about this room https://i.imgur.com/gzocE48.png that's just the lower hangar. There aren't any ships in it atm though. Not sure why I haven't put any there yet. Should probably do that now that I think about it actually...

No resource packs were used. The ship was made in and intended for total vanilla Minecraft.

Redstone under the bridge leads to weapons which I did not include because some of them aren't finished or updated to 1.12, and because I don't want the other people in my group to see how they work.
