I present the Solar System Explorer Spacecraft! This Project uses parts from several other projects here on planet Minecraft. This Spacecraft is largely edited from AirshipsEverywhere's Skyship Venture: The First Warp Ship which can be found here http://www.planetminecraft.com/project/skyship-venture-the-first-warp-ship/ . This is in my opinion, one of the coolest spacecraft in Minecraft! The Solar System Explorer also uses parts from Hiyougami's International Space Station (Minecraft Vanilla SMP) which you can find here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=91qHlceH5ps . The shuttles are from my SSTO VTOL Spaceplane which can be found here http://www.planetminecraft.com/project/ssto-vtol-spaceplane/ . Which itself is derived from FlyingPenguin33's 1:1 Scale Space Shuttle on Launch Pad which can be found here http://www.planetminecraft.com/project/11-scale-space-shuttle-on-launch-pad/ . It also uses parts from my Nautilus X Spacecraft which you can find here http://www.planetminecraft.com/project/nautilus-x-spacecraft/ .
Lastly the spacecraft also uses parts from Dguy's Starship Discovery (2001: A Space Odyssey) which can be found here http://www.planetminecraft.com/project/starship-discover-2001-a-space-odyssey/ . All in all this project would not exist if it were not for the above mentioned projects. Before downloading this spacecraft head over to their pages and make sure to download, favorite, subscribe, give a diamond and leave positive feedback to their amazing creations.

This Spacecraft is by far the largest spaceship that I have built in Minecraft thus far. It is my attempt at creating a realistic near future interplanetary nuclear powered spacecraft used for manned solar system exploration. In my opinion if we were not limited by money and all of the world's space programs teamed up something like this may very well exist in the future. The Solar System Explorer is a massive spacecraft and dwarfs my other builds. It has many features including a navigation module, observation area, supercomputer area, cockpit, centrifugal ring, lounge, crew quarters, research modules, storage modules, a biome section, corridors, laboratories and more. The entire spacecraft is a whopping 424 blocks long, 166 blocks wide and 68 blocks high. This project was built slowly over the course of six months on and off. I hope that you enjoy exploring this spacecraft as much as I enjoyed building it! Let me know what you think of it. If I decide to make any changes to the spacecraft I will be sure to update.

Update 1: I have posted an update of the Solar System Explorer Spacecraft several improvements and additions have been made. Check out the update log for more details.

Update #1 : by Nexus XIV 08/03/2017 9:37:53 pmAug 3rd, 2017

In this update several parts of the ship have been improved. Many new additions to the ship are present as well. Minor details have been fixed and added all throughout the spacecraft. Three robotic arms have been added to the truss of the ship. The biome section has been changed to the much more logical and efficient agricultural section. The heat radiators present on the ship have been changed from white wool to iron blocks. I have also redone the entire interior corridor and have added many details along the walls of the structure. An airlock has been added to one of the expandable laboratory modules towards the front of the ship. Additionally four new rooms have been added to the centrifugal ring section of the Solar System Explorer. These rooms are the gym, planetary data center, infirmary and the centrifuge data center. Overall the entire ship has been upgraded and improved. With all of these changes and additions this 2017 update makes this version of the solar system explorer spacecraft far superior to the previous version.

this is amazing, how do you make these so quickly? also did you ever think of making an orion project style spacecraft? like the one from ascension.

Thanks! I've been playing Minecraft for about a year and a half now and many of my larger projects were built over weeks or months and later uploaded to Planetminecraft. I've also wanted to build an Orion type spacecraft. In fact when I first started planning this build I debated weather or not it should have been an Orion spacecraft.
