Level 40 : Master Crafter

My recreation of the town of Junon from Final Fantasy VII. It has been my first project and took me about a month. Yep, that Sister Ray is a working cannon and fires about 450 metres (my record is 462). It can fire one to four TNT with two being the optimum. It requires 40 TNT to fire at full strength. It is auto-timed and can be fired from within the gun or from a remote firing platform, accessed via a convenient Nether-portal. But what good's a working Sister Ray without a decent target? About 400m down range you will find a familiar foe...

Additional Notes

I plan on making some additions at a (very) leisurely pace. These could include the Highwind and Gelnica, either in miniature at the airport or slightly less miniature in the museum spaces, submarines and a cargo ship, the fishing village of Lower Junon, Meteor, and all the Weapons (spaced roughly 100m apart down range, with Ultima providing an airborne target). Another, less likely addition would be Costa del Sol across the water. If anyone feels like making an addition go ahead and PM me =]

Update #1 : 03/07/2011 2:59:43 amMar 7, 2011

Map now starts at midday instead of night time. Moved the spawn point out of the bedroom to the top of the gun (original spawn point was glitched) and added extra lighting to various parts of the Junon structure. No torches in barrel of the gun at the moment which means mobs can spawn in there and creepers can wander into the chamber...not good when you've got 40 TNT stacked in there but hey, that's what Peaceful mode is for =]

Loved this map ... Too bad we did not understand how it worked or how the cannon ... It took me two hours to activate and when activated it nor seen the cannon firing... :/

Can anyone (who has experience with cannons) tell me if this still works? It was built with a very old version of Minecraft and for all I know the game rules might have changed. For those having trouble firing: fire from the central firing platform (the first one out in the water, depicted in the video). This point is equidistant between the cannon and its target, meaning the game will keep the flying TNT 'in mind' until it completes its flight. For those wanting to reload, this is done manually so pay close attention to the way the TNT is set up inside the cannon before you fire the first shot, and then replicate this set up. There is TNT in one of the chests inside the gun. If you have never built a cannon in Minecraft this whole exercise might be a little difficult for you. If you're a veteran cannon builder, I believe there are some sweet mods out there that will increase the funness of splowing stuff up. If you have used such mods, please post them below!

Destroyed XD. diamond for you anyways
is there a tnt cannon on this map?
well how convienient i finish my junon and find someone already beat me to the punch. i gotta ask you how your sister rays firing mech works tho mine hasnt been equiped with the firing capability yet. i like your city. mine is a bit bigger and color coded properly but this is still amazing. i love the ruby weapon that was just awesome. another question i have is did you place that cliff there or was it already convieniently placed by the computer.

Are you still around by chance? I was thinking, if you haven't already, we could collab on some sick FF structure. If you can, I'm usually on mc.oc.tc

Hit me up.

A tip for firing: I reccommend firing from the first firing platform, as it is roughly equidistant between the cannon and its target, meaning the TNT stays within the area being actively monitored by the game and will be able to complete its flight. Firing from within the gun then warping to the target can result in the shot being lost, or frozen somewhere beyond the horizon waiting for the player to walk close enough to it for the game to start processing it again. Which is weird. So yeah, fire from the first platform for best results.

Update: Just opened this map for the first time in months and realized the havoc wrought by Minecraft's more recent updates: namely, ladders must now be contiguous in order to be climbable [a word?], making my oh-so-elegant every-other-block ladders non-functional - most notably the one pegged to the redstone relay stack (TM and C) that leads to fire control. My suggestions for getting around this incovenience are thus: kill yourself and respawn on top of the gun, grab your ladders and climb up to the tower then jump off onto gun, or boat/swim your way out to the first firing tower and use the nether portal to warp your way to a gunnier you.

Just downloaded the world save and opened it with the current version (1.51) with no issues. Are sure everything's set up correctly at your end?
I love this

Hi. I like your Junon. I made a Costa del Sol on the server I play on. If you'd like to see it, the server is smp.mcsteamed.net Just type /warp "costa del sol"

I have plans to make a 1:1 scale Highwind in the (hopefully) near future, but I'm waiting on something at the moment. If I finally get to start working on it, I'll make the initial build next to Junon for atmosphere.

One more thing, when I tried firing the sister ray, it seems the tnt exploded in the barrel, knocking out some of the iron blocks. Not sure why.

Hi, I tried to log in to your server but got the following error message: "internal exception:java.netSocketException: connection reset". Is the server up and running at the moment?

I'll probably pay your server a visit in the near future! Sounds great. A 1:1 Highwind would be incredible, and about 4 times as long as the width of my Junon lol! I very much wish the height limit was more than 64 meters above ground...Junon would have been much more impressive. As to cannon thing, was this the shot that was loaded in when you first play the map or a reload you performed yourself? I haven't p;layed MC since before the last big update so for all I know the physics might have changed etc, but if you set the TNT up just like I did and use either the button on the first firing platform or remove the indicated redstone torch, the timing should be automatic and impecable, resulting in a clean shot. Exploding halfway down is usually indicative of either too little charge or premature arming of the charge.

I got the cannon to fire. As of right now the server is up and running with 1.5. Also JLUK I'm shifted my plans from building the highwind to building the Fahrenheit (ffx airship).
im a chargin mai la-... cannon?

Go to C:UsersUserAppDataRoaming.minecraftsaves
Replace 'User' with your account name.
Just stick the save file in here, but make sure it isn't in .zip format.

Any area in particular? I'm not super happy with the way the houses turned out, and I failed to take max altitude into account when I designed it which meant the central tower ended up a little stunted...What would you reccommend?

Made some minor changes and re-uploaded. Map now starts at midday instead of night, spawn point is now on top of gun instead of the bedroom (which glitched and spat you out on the other side of the wall). For those of you who have downloaded the night-time version and want to skip ahead to morning, just go through the iron door, through one of the museum spaces to the Fire Control room and ascend the ladder. There is a bedroom behind the Nether portal (not through it, just behind it.)

Go ahead! I've never tried multiplayer Minecraft but I'd totally come and visit if you did this =] I could try and upload a schematic if you want but you'd probably have more luck downloading the world file and making your own schematic from that (tried to upload schem. earlier but was too big)

Thanks! Yeah I tried to find the edge of the map...What can I say, we're all n00bs once ;] Oh and to anyone worried about download size, it's a 27Mb .7z. I pruned the map with mcedit just before upload.

I have to say, though, I think I liked the face at the end more than the actual structure. (Junon)

Ha ha I'll take that as a complement! That whole set up is on the map too, try and find it ;]
