Hello,

this is a Peterbilt Coca-Cola semi truck. It is used by Coca-Cola to transport and advertise their product.

To build this truck realistically I needed the red netherbrick stairs and slabs. But I didn't want to use a snapshot version, so I gave bricks the same texture like red netherbrick, which causes brick stairs and slabs to look like red netherbrick stairs and slabs.

Enjoy!





StingrayProductions made a video about a "Haunted Coca-Cola Truck" featuring this design:

Hi again Captain_JEK! Hey, was wondering about something. The stuff I do on Planetminecraft is actually just my second line of projects. I'm most known for my Youtube videos. I was wondering, if I make a machinima showcasing this coca-cola truck, would you post the video in your description? I would also link to here through my video, that way people watching my video could come here to download. We'd both get more views.

Here's an example of one of my own projects I showcased through a video called "The Chain Letter": www.planetminecraft.com/project/dual-white-country-mansion-properties/

Yep, that is a fantastic idea! Of course I would put the video in the description ^^
Just make sure to somehow show or mention in the video that I built it and not you xD
That's great! I'll make sure to do so! I'm thinking of something fun, like making it haunted or something!

What? A haunted Coca-Cola Truck? Well, I guess you have more experience than me in making machinimas xD
Yeah, it should be great! I've done quite a few haunted things this and that, it's all fun :)

Oh man, you actually did it! And you crashed my truck! xD Pretty neat that you can actually sit (stand) in it, huh? ^^
Thanks!
I'll put it in the description.
Cool! And that truck design worked so great for green screen stuff! Loved it! Thanks for doing such awesome designs!

I mean there are some signs of a wood button addiction but other than that this build is epic,

  • December 6, 2018, 2:13 pm
"Wood button addiction"? xD Real Coca-Cola trucks are full of fairy lights xD
I even thought about putting wooden buttons over the entire rim of the trailer, but that didn't look very good. So I went for the reduced version, with a button every 2 blocks. But yeah, there are still many of them ^^
wow more semi, i love itnice work (even though you had to "cheat" lol ;)
)

  • December 6, 2018, 12:47 pm
Yeah, I kinda fell ihn love with semis (especially Peterbilts) myself, so you can expect more to come xD
And I didn't cheat! I just used vanilla blocks from a newer version not yet available in 1.12...
whatever you call it it's still creative ^^
How its this even possible.. xd

Now I sit and think whether I should continue the RA series or not. Sometimes i have to spend a week and get a low mark to put it mildly. Here 3 hours.
Yes yes, I really strongly envy

I think it has to do with the "usefulness" of a build. Many people build cities and need vehicles to decorate the cities. So, vehicles (in a reasonable scale) are pretty useful. That also means many people search for vehicles to find inspiration or download them directly.

However, how useful do you think are gigantic dragons or exact replicas of C&C buildings which also are quite big? I mean, what would you do with them? Is there any use for them? Are they useful?
I don't want to keep you from building more dragons and C&C stuff because you have great skill in doing so. But I think the reason why the C&C stuff isn't as successful as you wished it would be, is because people can't do anything with it.
You should build something because it gives you joy and because you have fun building it and like it. Then you can always tell yourself when it doesn't become as successful as you wished: "Well, fuck it, I like it and I made it the best it could be".
That's what I do xD

I'm just a realist and strive for a realistic look. My organics will always be big, and make me do organics of small size is simply impossible.
No, wait, that's not what we're talking about.....
The main reason for my envy is that I did not think of making vehicles on a small scale. What I mean.I mean if I start to make vehicles in adequate sizes for the player, then for the detail I will have to use objects just like you. No other way. There will be banners and other unusual uses of ordinary objects. This means that I will have to redo all other projects. and it will all mean that I kind of stole your style. But if I continue in my size, I will do it with the thought that it cannot be used. I'm at an incredible dead end now 🤯

I actually thought about you making dinosaurs and dragons in (almost) 1:1 scale. Then people could use them. And I think that also is something not yet existing in Minecraft - probably because it's crazy difficult.
Lol, when I search for "minecraft dragon" your giant dragons are the first result xD
But your dragons aren't the problem, are they? The problem are the C&C builds, right?
And I really have no idea how to make them more useful :/
  • Roman_95
  • Level 53

  • January 7, 2019, 7:47 am
Yes i about C&C.
(snaped a finger) I know how. Perhaps. Maybe. If consider the example of a single wheel. Smallest more or less round wheel can build 2x2 by stairs, but how about 3x3. All vehicles military, future.
I need to try remade guardian tank

Yeah ^^ Tanks are always good. Even more when you can use them for something :P

For me it's the same with The Last Man on Earth: I spent 18 days only building the entire day a giant, overdetailed tower with an enormous factory and weapon system around it - and now a truck I spent 3 hours on is going to become probably more successful than The Last Man on Earth xD

The only thing I learn from this is that it is absolutely impossible to predict what people will like and what not. I mean I have multiple other trucks built almost exactly the same and they didn't get as many diamonds as this Coca-Cola Truck.
I don't even know myself what makes it so successful.
You cannot know what people will like and what not.
