Too much work to be destroyed by a random fighter armed with Hornets :shaking:, better call it a Leviathan :P

We could do a side-project to build a couple of Nephilims on a bombing run, on the far side from the rail line, with the first volley of torpedos under way.  It'd be a pretty funny use of Minecraft's rendering distance, since you'd see the cruiser, go inside, and explore, completely unaware that your doom was approaching, until you take a look out of one of the starboard-side windows.

Unless, of course, the Fenriathan has a nice Aeolus cruiser built on that side wiping out all the incoming fighters... :p

It wouldn't be the FreeSpace community if the next enormous project wasn't being planned before the first could possibly be finished.  ;)

I can now import FS2 models into MC. So for reference, Qaz asked to upload this to compare to how off the first Fenris was. It should end up roughly like this:

Re: GTC Fenris in Minecraft
Awesome! Considering the missile turret is at the bottom of it, I always thought it was full of ammo or something, but the textures back those windows up. :D However....

Primary Fixed-location Facilities
...let's refrain from doing that to any other parts of the ship until we've got the functional elements that have to be situated in specific locations in place: Engine glow (I'd like to do this part as I have some special ideas for it) + engine room, docking ports (with functional piston doors! :D ), and turrets+internal turret mechanisms.

Deck Markers
Once those functional elements are in place, we should close up the hull (except for the starboard side), and place temporary markers for the decks (not complete decks, just indicators!) along the inside of the hull. Remember that the ventral & dorsal (top & bottom) hulls should be 2 full blocks thick, so take that into consideration. Here's how I'd suggest doing things (scroll the code box):

Code: [Select]
=============== - Top Hull
=============== - Top Hull
[             ] - Crawlspace for circuitry
[             ] - (2 block height)
=============== - Deck ceiling
[             ] - Deck
[             ] - Deck
[             ] - Deck
=============== - Deck floor
[             ] - Crawlspace for circuitry
[             ] - (2 block height)
=============== - Deck ceiling
[             ] - Deck
[             ] - Deck
[             ] - Deck
=============== - Deck floor
...
...
...
=============== - Deck ceiling
[             ] - Deck
[             ] - Deck
[             ] - Deck
=============== - Deck floor
[             ] - Crawlspace for circuitry
[             ] - (2 block height)
=============== - Bottom Hull
=============== - Bottom Hull

Primary Corridors
With those markers in place, we can place some large primary fore-aft corridors. Perhaps 2 on each deck that has primary corridors*, and 7 blocks wide. At a later stage, they could have the primary facilities placed between them (CnC, infirmary, mess halls, etc.) and secondary rooms on the hull-wards sides, so we'll place the corridors at around 1/3 and 2/3 of the ship's width.

* What do you all think about these primary corridors? Should there be a pair of them on every single deck that runs the full length of the ship, or should there merely be 2 or 3 of the full-length decks that have primary corridors?

Other Primary Facilities
With the corridors in place, we can move on to the other primary facilities that don't need to be in any specific location... CnC, the infirmary, mess hall, arboretum, recreational center + swimming pool, etc. Each of these should have one wall (or perhaps a section of the ceiling) empty, for the placement of the...

Tour Rail
The tour rail whould be isolated via a glass tube from the rest of the ship; walking tours will be available elsewhere, not by getting off the tour rail in the middle.

Filler
At this point, the remaining space can be filled in with decks, smaller corridors, and rooms.

Looks great.  :yes:

@the people asking what program I used: just google for 3d model to minecraft. Basically you turn 3d models into voxels, then import those. Binvox or such can change blender .wrl models into .schematic with a console line of -t schematic. PM me if you want more info to not clog the thread about it.

Re: GTC Fenris in Minecraft
Just glowstone, water, and air. If it needs a more white-ish color a layer of glass (before or after water) with retail textures should do just fine. As for the triangles... not a clue, I blame notchcode.

Re: GTC Fenris in Minecraft
Not a big deal. :) One thing I would check is if the engine glow covers that entire inset area, or just a circular area in the center. If the latter, the glowstone's light fall-off should give a nice fade on the glow.

Re: GTC Fenris in Minecraft
By the direct model import sara did, the engine should only be the inner circle, and by the real model I'm pretty sure the rest is just glow. It would be a serious waste to do all that angle work and just wall it off at the larger circle.

Since the fenris is technically 'docked', we could just claim that the engine is on idle...  :nervous:

Oh, and as an idea... is there a way to push every glowstone (or even the full top layer, and checkerboard style under that) block behind the water out, at the same time? I'm thinking afterburner button. Perhaps linked directly to the bridge. The water is already one block above the visible area, so it would fix itself once they are retracted.
