Hello again! I started work on this last night in creative mode on my singleplayer. It's an Arkellian Battleship, which is a fictional air vessel featured in a book that Im writing. The ship is quite large, over 100 blocks long! I still need to add the sails, the propellers, and steering vanes, as well as the command bridge. Once that's done, all that's left is to add the interior decor (cabins, furniture, etc.) and then I will upload a schematic. Hope you enjoy it! :)

Some back story on the ship: Arkellian battleships form the main backbone of the Imperial Armada of Arkellia. Designed for swiftly entering a battlezone, firing a heavy broadside, and then using the battering ram to escape. They typically carry crews of 15-32 persons, and squadrons of them can number anywhere from 2-10 ships. The ship has enough facilities to operate for approximately 1-2 months without support. This makes it functional as a reconnisance and scouting vessel when exploring new lands. The colorations of the sails and the flag denotes rank and which of the Nine Provinces of Arkellia the ship hails from.


Made some good progress after work today, added the sails and steering vanes, and the command bridge. Still need to add the propellers. Starting to work on the deck interior and am fleshing out the layout for the cabins. Project's nearly there guys!

***UPDATE 2***

Added the last of the sails and the propellers, tweaked some of the exterior decor. All that's left now is to furnish the decks and then she'll be done. :)

***UPDATE 3***

She's finally done... and MAN, what a project. Absolute joy to build. The finished vessel has 8 complete decks with ample room for over 17 crew plus the captain! The ship features, from bottom to top, an engineering deck, 2 crew decks, the main deck with cannon batteries, open air cargo storage and an armory, the officers' deck with a few crew cabins, the ship's galley and the captain's cabin, the dining deck with a dining room, an exterior/interior maintenance deck for the sails/zeppelin balloon, and finally the command bridge deck. The only thing left is to christen the ship with a name... ;) Schematic will be available upon request.

***UPDATE 4***

Schematic is now available for download! Enjoy sailing the skies, friends!

*** UPDATE ***

Due to recent theft of my work by certain servers, I am removing all schematics of my vessels for personal security until further notice.

I'm sorry for that men in black is one of my favorite movies I had to point out the reference... "PLEASE FIND THE GALAXY I LIKE EARTH AND I DON'T WANT YOU TO DESTROY IT!!!!!"

Lol, it's fine. I remember hearing that in the movie and was like, cool, that would make a awesome name for the country in the book Im writing. Granted, I was 15 and unimaginitive at the time, I'll probably have to rethink of a better name for my story :P
