I'm alive! :O

Despite rumors to the contrary...
Long story short, my life took off in a direction soon after my last upload and I've been extremely busy since, making minecraft a lesser priority, and harder to focus on, especially when the game was crashing 2 minutes after starting every time, however with that problem fixed and some more time to set aside, I found myself back to building.

This is the first of several new ships off the productionline, the HMS Endurance is a 108 gun 3 gun deck 1st rate ship of the line of the british navy, she's a fictional ship yet almost completely based on reality, the closest relative would be the HMS Victory, which this one is largely based off of, they're pretty much sisterships. My Victory had some flaws that I wanted to correct, and the Endurance is pretty much an improvement on the Victory, being very similar, but with key differences, she's a few blocks longer, leaving interior design a bit more playroom, allthough she is thinner at the beam, my Victory was just too fat. She has 4 more guns than the victory, but pretty much the same rigging, with a few differences.

The ship is built by me, with the help of Oskyi, another member of team Lyrah, a great organic builder who's done work on the hull, the interior and the sails, just look at those beautiful canvases :)

Type: 1st rate ship of the line
Length: 119
Beam: 23
Height: 96
guns: 108
depth: 11
sail area: ~5000m²
crew: 850
speed: 10,5 knots
boats: 5
tons: 3776 metric

We are currently, and have been for a year or so, working on a map that is hopefully soon to be released, which will have all of my recent ships on it, as well as my upcoming ones, keep your eye out for that, and I highly recommend you subscribe to Lyrah.

You might notice there is a download link, I've been getting alot of requests about downloads for my maps, I've been reluctant in the past because of theft, and because of more technical issues such as plugin requirements and resourcepacks that are needed for full compatability. New times however, it's your responsibility to have the correct means of experiencing this ship if you download it :)

You will need:
Conquest resourcepack for MC version 1.7.10, not the mod.
Optifine, for 1.7.10
A plugin that allows floating blocks, like trapdoors etc.

It is possible to view the ship without such a plugin, but alot of blocks will probably be gone, or fall of when a block update happens.

To end I want to give you a promise. During the next couple of weeks, I will release a few more ships, and after that, a fleet pack that will contain 6 or 7 british ships as a bundle, and whats more, since this is likely my last project in minecraft, (meaning this map that we're building), I'll give you a bit of a surprise gift when I'm done. For now, hope you enjoy this one :)

PS. To any cinematographer or the like, if you want to use the ship for a production, pls credit me, link to my page and also link your film or whatever it might be to me, thank you :)

Love the ship. Would like to see you try and finish some ironclads perhaps in the future.

I have considered building more modern ships, but the issue is that I'm building in conquest, which is more geared toward medieval - 18th century,, there arn't enough textures for more modern things to make it look good really, and I wouldn't do something outside of conquest either :)

really nice hull, good proportion for the stern and bow
the only thing I can blame is that the ship sits high on the water
Just a pernickety question, is it 1meter=1block or you keeps proportion (3 blocks between each gun, and you apply the proportion for the rest of the ship) ?

anyway, happy to see a good looking ship of the line, it's becoming quite rare

Thx, can't really agree with you though, 11 blocks deep under water, it is proportionally correct. For your question, it depends haha, minecraft is funny that way, length wise, 1 block is just about 1 meter, so on that axis it is to scale, but width, it's kinda not, if it were then the ship would be ridiculously thin, and yet, it looks as it should. Strange eh?

Yep, because a beam of 23 meters and a draft of 11 meters isn't possible, no ship of the line have such dimension. That's in fact the problem when you wants to place all of the guns, you can't keep dimension of the ship (if you consider that 1 block = 1 meter), and then, is it 1:1 ? ehhh actually I've been doing the same reflexion for my ships, they're not real 1:1 hahah

aye, kind of impossible in mc, I still can't get my head around the fact that the blocks are square yet it doesn't act so in all axis..
