This is a model of the main ship you fly, the Delphinus, in Skies of Arcadia for Sega Dreamcast and Gamecube.

It is made solely by me with no editing programs or inventory editing. (Not even flying, since 99% of this was done months ago before the re-adding of creative mode) Originally made in February 2011, never uploaded before now.

- Dimensions are 41W x 75L x 47H

*Please note some of these pictures are from when I first made it and others more recently. The old pictures are of things I never changed between now and then. You can probably tell which are old and which are new by the lighting, chests, etc.

This ship is more than a show piece. It is purposely made the size it is so it fits in a normally generated world. I personally do not like to make something that doesn't fit without a big hole cut into the ground. Rather than just something for looks, this is made to be a fully functional base, either for single player or multiplayer. Aside from the bridge, dinning room, outer decks, and tower that are re-created as close as possible to the game, there's a full farm, sleeping area, blacksmith, huge storage space, and kitchen. I even added a few things for fun like a cell block/jail, captain's quarters, and water fountain.

Also, you can probably notice that aside from age, there are differences in location in the screenshots, and that's because they're from 3 different worlds I pasted this into after it's initial construction. With the new creative mode for 1.8 I used that to clean up a couple things on the outside easily and so I re-shot pictures of the outside in those worlds. Some of the interior pictures are older since I hardly changed the inside, aside from the few new additions since 1.8.(You'll see some of the new blocks used, that's them)

Additional Notes

I originally made this about February 2011 and, as stated, have made a few relatively minor changes to the interior since the youtube video I uploaded at that time. Mainly I transformed the maintenance area below the cargo hold(that used to hold a cannon(just for show) like the ones on the outside deck) into a small functional farm. I also used the new iron bar blocks to separate the two cells in the cell block. The area under the dinning/luxury room has been turned into a kitchen as well that has plenty of room to store lots of food or add blocks from food mods to cook new things.

Ooh, lovely! But you seem to have an infestation of fairies in the cargo hold. =P

Yes, it was quite a fun mod to use then. I could put them on my head and float down off the side of the ship. :p

First off, nice work on this one. I've been working on one of my own actually for about a week and a half on an SMP server on my own over the ocean, and while since the height would violate the limit otherwise, much to my chagrin, I had to make the wings go mostly underwater.

Anyway, reason I'm posting isn't just to congradulate you on the nice build, but I was wondering if you had used any images or just the raw game files for reference. I've got everything done except for the propellers on the back done and I can't seem to find anything to base it off of

Thank you, and yeah that's why I made mine a bit smaller so it'd fit above sea level.

I almost 90% used the game itself, wondering around the inside areas and looking at the hull. Otherwise I just found a couple small pictures of it from the side to make sure I was making the bulge and blue highlights look right. There's not a whole lot the get a better look at the propellers than the game. I was surprised just how incredibly hard it was to find images at all for this thing.

Tell me about it haha. There was a really helpful post on GameFAQs that I ended up using a lot, but for some reason they don't have the propellers on it. I've got it mostly proportionally scaled but it's really killing me to not know how big those suckers are. Emulating the game is near impossible due to a million various errors, and I didn't bring the game with me to where I am. Thanks for the response though, glad to see other Skies fans out there.
