Level 66 : High Grandmaster Pirate
BloXy requested a red recolor of my original cutter schematic. Since I had been considering doing pirate "versions" of some of the smaller designs anyway, I took the opportunity for an extensive rework of the original design.

The idea is that the pirates would have stolen a naval cutter and then modified it, upgrading its crew complement, engines, and armament. The result is a vessel that can punch well above its weight. There are more bolt throwers in each emplacement, and bombing tubes have been added to the rear of the balloon. They also help to tie it in visually with the much larger pirate frigate.

I also added a skull to the balloon. I couldn't make it work with framing crossing the center of the balloon, so I got rid of it and supported the front by replacing wood with iron. The challenge with these is making sure that it still looks like a design painted on the balloon rather than "Thomas the Undead Tank Engine".

I had to cut out the second schematic because people were having too many problems with a zip file. If you are using McEdit to place it, it should be very easy to do a fill/replace operation on the whole thing, swapping red wool for grey.

I do. That is an unfortunate side effect of using a "void" level with the bedrock removed. It is a problem with Minecraft itself. If you want to use maps, I would add a layer of sand and then a layer of water at the very bottom with McEdit.
