This is a new project I've been working on recently. It is a full scale (1:1) recreation of the famous Olympic-Class Ocean Liner, the RMS Titanic.

The real Titanic was 269m (882' 6") long, which corresponds to 269 blocks in minecraft. Currently, only the exterior of the ship is complete and the interior is mostly empty. The only portions of the interior of the ship that are finished at the moment are the boiler rooms and the main reciprocating engine room.

I have used scans of the actual Olympic-Class schematics in order to accurately represent the ship's scale and proportions, with only minor alterations to accommodate minecraft's blocky limitations.

An MC Edit schematic of the ship is available for download as it currently stands (without a complete interior). I am likely to finish the deck layouts as time goes on, but feel free to decorate and lay out the interior of the ship yourself. If you plan to do so and release it, please credit me for the work on the exterior.

Some Statistics:

Length - 269 Blocks (271 with aft flag)
Width - 29 Blocks (33 with overhanging lifeboats)
Height - 72 Blocks (61 above the waterline)
Progress60% complete

Did you know that the fourth smokestackwas actually a fake dummy meant for decoration? I never knew that until I read it in a Titanic book. I think it was the one in the back.

I did. I used to be obsessed with the Titanic when I was younger (around about then the 1997 Movie came out) so I'm pretty familiar with the ship.

To be accurate though, calling the 4th funnel a 'dummy' is not completely correct. You are correct that it is technically a fake smokestack, because only the first 3 funnels channeled the smoke from the boilers, but the 4th one had functional purposes aside from just being placed for aesthetic purposes. The rear funnel was positioned over the engine rooms and provided ventilation for the 2 large reciprocating engines, the turbine engine, and the electricity generators (as well as all of the accompanying machinery). From what I understand, the 4th funnel could also be used to blow off extra steam along with the other 3.

The MCEdit Schematic was made in 1.5.2 but I just imported it into a 1.6.2 world and it works fine. There shouldn't be any problems with adding it to your 1.6 + worlds.

okay, because there was one point where an unknown source caused the underground of some of my worlds to disappear
