After I World war a White Star Line decided
to create new ocean liner. WSL designers still had in mind the
tragedy of RMS Titanic and after this very painful lesson they
designed new ship much more carefully, so it become the safest ship
of those times. His luxury interiors were made by famous interior
designers, and his crew was very experience. After 3 years of
designing in May 1922 in H&W shipyard the builders placed the
longest keel in the whole shipbuilding history. That was the
beginning of it - new king of the Atlantic Ocean: ROYAL MAIL STEAMER
NEPTUNE.'

Well, that was a short introduction to this project,
which is creating by Mr_Dzielnicowy & Pepsi4815162342 aka TheEngineerGuy.

The ship is in
4/1 scale and have:
-1349 blocks in length
-159 blocks in width
on Boat deck level
-255 blocks in
height

What are you see on pictures, the ship itself is in a stage of creating and muchwork is still ahead of us. We also did a few parts of Cabins and Staterooms, few open areas and some interiors of 1st class. We will post updates every time when we will do a bigger progress. But Keep in mind we're working every day on the Ship. The Project might seem dead at some points because we're aren't post any updates. But we do work on it every day.


Notice our Fanpage on Facebook. It contain tons of Titanic and Neptune HD renders.

TEAM

The Team is actually a very small one. The Project was creaded by Mr_D. So keep in mind, this is a project between Mr_D and me only.

Method how we are build and Plan this entire Project.

Our

method of creating this ship is a little different than in case of
building other ships in Minecraft, mainly because of scale and our
point to make Neptune as realistic as possible, with all sources,
knowledge that we have access to and skills that we have. Because of
this, everything that we are working on is based on real exsisting and used plans
and designs
that were in use in marine engineering in Titanic times. This affects
on practically all aspects of Neptune design, from hull construction
to Propelling Machinery; from 1st
class state rooms to crew quarters outfitting. Our whole knowledge
comes from various sources, as: books about Titanic and marine
engineering in general, discussions on Titanic forums, information
from Titanic historians, photographs from various web sites,
books and Military Archives. We are doing this because of our fascination in
Titanic, her
history and construction details, that lasts for over 10 years.

Because
Tank Top deck is our main point of interest on Titanic and Neptune, our main
effort is coming to realistically recreate Engines and Boilers Rooms.
Boilers construction and all things that they were fitted with are
recreated on Neptune, such as: steam supply and safety valves, water
and pressure gauges, thermometers, blow-down valves, circulating
valves etc. Also catwalks system is based on Olympic class liners
boiler rooms plans. All of them connected as in reality. We even
recreating under-floor piping, so all systems have connections with
pumps, which in case of Boiler Rooms are fitted in separated room.
All pumps are general-purpose, so they have connections with ballast
and bilge lines, feed water suction lines, boilers circulation lines
and ash expellers. Pump in Boilers Room No.2 have additional
connection to starboard side control tank, as it was on Titanic.

The
same is in case of Reciprocating and Turbine Engine Rooms. They are
mostly based on plans of Olympic class Liners engine rooms plans, so
many parts of machinery that were on Titanic is recreated on Neptune,
but of course there are some differences. Currently those rooms are
probably the most detailed recreation of steam driven ship engine
room in whole Minecraft so far, especially in this scale. Engine
Rooms have whole machinery that is require to work as in reality,
such as thrust blocks, main and auxiliary condensers, main and
auxiliary air pumps, hot-well pumps, feed water pumps, feed water
filters, Surface Feed Water Heater, Direct Contact Feed Water Heater,
ballast pumps, bilge pumps, sanitary pumps, fresh water pumps,
hydraulic pumps, evaporators and hoisting gears to rise cylinder
covers and upper half of turbine casing. All of them fitted with
required additional equipment of course. Engines are also fitted with
all equipment required to operate them, as different valves and
controls to operate them as wheels of Main Stop Valves, By-Pass
valves, Silent Blow-off valves, emergency starting valves and
cylinder drains levers and also levers to operate Reversing Gears and
to operate change-over valves in Turbine Room. Engines also have
Aspinall Governor to control their RPM, turning gear and special
hoists to raise cylinders covers in time of inspections and repairs.

We
are not only recreating engines and pumps, but also doing under-floor
piping. All systems such as ballast, bilge, feed water, fresh water,
hot salt water, sanitary water, condensers and evaporators
circulating water systems – basically ALL of them and all
connections with specific pumps are recreated on Neptune. The same is
with steam supply and exhaust piping. There are separated pipes for
different types of pumps in Engine Rooms, based on what they are
doing and when they are using. Turbine is also fitted with steam
pipes which were using to pre-heating her before bringing to work,
special valve to bring her into speed with short injection of high
pressure steam. Turbine also have a centrifugal governor to control
RPM and her own thrust block as well as fitted with Turning Gear.

We
are also eager to achieve so high level of accuracy and details in
case of passengers areas. We are searching information about how
rooms of different classes looked like on different steamers of
Titanic times, such as interiors of Mauretania, Lusitania, Olympic,
Aquitania and other ships built by White Star Line and Cunard Line.
Exterior is a mix of Titanic, Britannic, Lusitania and Queen Mary
designs. Many areas are still not planned or started, so much work is
still ahead of us.

As
you can see, we are treating this build very serious and our goal is
to make ultra-detailed and realistic ocean liner, not only in case of
machinery , but also in case of interior designs and fitting-out. We
are putting a lot of effort to this and we hope that we will achieve
this.


Plans

are the most important thing to be able to start detailed working in marine Engineering.
So we used Titanic/Olympics original Yard Plans. Those are never shown in the Internet before. And most of them aren't published yet. We do have access to those and use them
to create a fully accurate feel of the Titanic and Neptune.

In case of Titanic we will use them
very accurate to be able to even build correct Riveting and Plating to all Walls, Structures, Deckhouses ecc. The same is on Neptune but in a bigger size. According the Framing Plan we use we're even able to place Stiffeners, Web Frames, Frames, Supports, Reinforcements, Beams all accurate! So every singel Block is well thinked placed.

If you have any further question about the Plans, do not hesitate to send me a message (TheEngineerGuy).

Nice ship. Will there be a download available? And it doesn't have to sink either.

No, sorry. There won't be any Download. Due to the fact it was builded by Oiriginal Plans of the Olympic Class and alot of Naval Engineering study for over years... There won't be a DL. But we're happy you like it.
