Third times the charm right?
I sure hope so.

This is the Titanic built in a scale of 1.5:1, if you're into this sort of thing then that's all you need to know really.

Naturally, I intend for the ship to have a full interior with all sorts of redstone functionality provided by DailyCakeSlice who I have once again forcefully roped on board with the promise and threat of overcomplicated systems and elevators.

As I build these ships effectively from the bottom-up its not too much to look at currently, just an empty hull sans superstructure while the lower decks are fitted out but I figured I'd post this now anyways in case anyone wants to see the process.

No idea when the ship will be finished but expect updates to come.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Most recent change: G-Deck and around a third of F-Deck are done, the hull has been reworked yet again, all the boilers were converted over to deepslate because I love it. Thats about it for now in terms of progress.

In other news NASA has poached my redstone sla- I mean engineer.

What that means is that DailyCakeSlice is currently unable to help on engine work while developing an AI for a moon robot or something else infuriatingly awesome.

I have begrudgingly accepted that this takes precedence over a Minecraft boat, and is also super cool and I am very proud.

Great build, I would only suggest to try using different shades of red and black for the hull so the lines are more appreciable while also weathering it (I just remembered that the hull sides used to be all messed up with coal and thus why they were black)

Thanks for the feedback, only a true enthusiast would comment calling for more appreciable hull lines lol.

I'm not so far into the build that I've begun properly detailing the exterior yet but there aren't very many options for the black painted hull other than concrete and wool. In the past I've used coal blocks to get a somewhat lighter shade but can't really stand the naturalistic rock texture it gives the ship- though I do intend to use some small amounts of coal under the ash ejection and coaling ports to give that a more weathered look.

It is worth bearing in mind that the Titanic never really got the chance to experience much weathering.

Her sister the Olympic definitely did however, and if I were to convert the the ship over (cough, potential foreshadowing, cough), I would definitely be sure to make it a bit less shiny.

As a side note I've considered using off shades of black and red to try and build in some of the plate lines as detailing for the hull but there isn't really a good shade of black to go along with the concrete I'm using and I think 1.5 is just a bit too small of a scale to realistically implement that sort of detail. I haven't entirely written off the concept quite yet though so that may be subject to change.

well I agree titanic was a ship too new to be weathered but on the hull lines side I do think you should run some experiments on palettes with different blocks to somewhat make the ship plating, if you manage to pull it up it will really make your hull stand out from any other liner on the site
