Sorry folks about the delay to update the description, but it's finally here! :D
This is the HMS Leopard, she is a 4th rate ship of the line, and she has 54 actual cannons (I think). The cannon types are dispenser cannons (loaded with TNT) with 7 boosters, and 6 dispensers with fire charges on both broadsides and two facing the bow. These cannons have a range of 80 blocks and above, which is much more compact than my Andromeda's cannons. This is my first actual ship that has powerful redstone TNT cannons that is on both sides of the ship, and properly shaped too. The ship is slightly based off of Mr. Beasty's ships, which are extremely realistic. Also thanks to him for helping me out and giving me tips!

You may use this ship in any way, if you are using it for an adventure map, all I ask for is credit for making the ship and a notification of how you will be using it. Thank you!

I shall also mention one last thing, you should spawn in the very front of the ship. If you want to know some information about the curtains and the history in game, it is in the daytime captain's cabin, which is on the top cabin on the right facing the stern. It's pretty easy since I've put in signs to know which room was which.

History of the HMS Leopard(from wikipedia):

HMS Leopard was a 50-gun Portland-class fourth rate of the Royal Navy. She served during the French Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars, and the War of 1812.

In early 1807, a handful of British sailorso some of American birtho deserted their respective ships, then blockading French ships in Chesapeake Bay, and joined the crew of theUSS Chesapeake. In an attempt to recover the British deserters, Captain Salusbury Pryce Humphreys, commanding the Leopard, hailed the USS Chesapeake and requested permission to search her. Commodore James Barron of the Chesapeake refused, and the Leopard opened fire. Caught unprepared, Barron surrendered, and Humphreys sent boarders to search for the deserters. The boarding party seized four deserters from the Royal Navyo three Americans and one British-born sailoro and took them to Halifax, where the British sailor, Jenkin Ratford, was hanged for desertion. The Americans were initially sentenced to 500 lashes, but had their sentence commuted; Britain also offered to return them to America.

The incident caused severe political repercussions in the United States, and nearly led to the two nations going to war.

In 1812, the Leopard had her guns removed and was converted to a troopship. On 28 June 1814 she was en route from Britain to Quebec, carrying a contingent of 475 Royal Scots Guardsmen, when she grounded on Anticosti Island in heavy fog. The ship was destroyed, but all hands on board survived.

Additional Notes

If you've noticed real closely there are black wool colored slabs. How did I do this? Re-texturing. For noobs, here's some instructions:
1. Backup your worlds (each time I retexture something, my world seems to dissapear which is why I backup my worlds. This may not be the case for you, but I highly recommend it.
2. Download Winrar or Winzip (I'm 99% sure you will have this installed, but this will be included nontheless), and paint.net (google "paint.net" and look for the download on cnet.com)
3. Make a copy of your existing texture pack, then unzip the original/copied pack. Then, open up the "terrain.png" file with paint.net.
4. Place the black wool texture over the netherbrick texture. The Netherbrick texture should be in the bottom right corner, and the wool texture is close to it. (Now, you are free to use any other block that includes slabs. But I like to use Netherbrick because Netherbrick is only seen in the Nether, so then it's one of the least common blocks. But if you're going to the Nether, just keep this in mind.)
5. Save it, then compress the entire folder you just unzipped earlier as a .ZIP if you're using WinRAR.
6. ???
7. Profit!

If you have any questions, let me know!

Uh, that's odd....everything should be working correctly. Unless you used a schematic to implement it into the world then it's a possible MCEdit glitch. I'll double check everything and see if it works.

Could have been that the dispensers were turned by MCEdit, I've seen that before.
