Anyone else building an airship?
« on: May 31, 2014, 06:46:13 am »
Besides GoI my favourite computer games are block-building ones (not really Minecraft, but I like some others), and it has been a great dream of mine for a while to build my very own airship. :) I have seen many people building replicas of GoI ships in such building games, so I thought we could start a thread where compulsive airship builders like myself may share their works.  ;D

To tell you the whole truth, I originally wanted to make a GoI ship replica too, because the ones I saw looked awesome, but GoI ships turned out to be quite complicated in structure, so in the end I decided to build a ship from my imagination, as it was easier to solve. So hereby I present to you HMS Slender, my very first air vessel built with my own hands in Landmark Beta. As you can see the thing is not done yet, but it has already started to resemble some sort of an airship.  :D In the right picture you can see a tiny dot standing on the front of the ship, well that's my character.  8)

Is anyone else into such building business? We could exchange ship designs and basic structural principles, because as I was building this, I realized how little I know of how a ship is supposed to be structured.  :P (In fact one side of it turned out to be taller than the other, but luckily it can't be seen hahahaha).

That is pretty neat!

You gave me an idea though, and that is to build one of these ships in kerbel space program, and launch it into space.

Space galleon, here we come!

Alternatively (much more likely), flaming ball of former-galleon.

"Do you want to build an Airship?"
"It kind of has to be an Airship!"
"Go away, Muse!"

I'm in Landmark right now too thanks to a friend's beta key.

First up is my Skies of Arcadia vessel:



Then project 2 which is a long way away from finishing:

Thats an awesome pyra!

Next step is totally to use those action blocks or whatever (I don't play minecraft) and make working guns.

That's not minecraft, it's the minecraft-ish voxel building gamey thing part of Everquest Next, called Landmark.
