Ten Forward style, perhaps?

If it were a larger, modern capital ship, I'd agree.  Since the Leviathan/Fenris was a small, old workhorse in FS1, and a back-line defender in FS2, I doubt it'd have very many luxuries to speak of.  Of course, we don't have a canon internal layout of the ship from which to work, but generally speaking, the smaller the ship and the closer to a permanent installation it's meant to operate, the less it has in the way of amenities.

Remember, the Fenris is about the same size as a Aircraft Carrier, if not much larger in total space. Not to mention how boring doing a ton of sleeping quarters would be. I'm sure we'll find a place for a bar, got an image of a specific type in mind so we can have an example?

So I was thinking that the area beyond those sets of 3 parallel windows at the bottom of the engine section could be an arboretum / food garden type thing. Who likes making things pretty? Is it too sexist if I turn to you, Sara? :p

That close to the engine? Seems a bit unrealistic, honestly. I really doubt the Fenris would have such a thing anyway.

Re: GTC Fenris in Minecraft
I'm going to have to side with hades on this one, thats way too close to the engines, not to mention the cramped space. Besides, I would think the oxygen-making (important in space) room would be closer to the center where its protected then right next to the part most likely to explode.

Re: GTC Fenris in Minecraft
Give me another logical use for having relatively enormous windows there then. :)

Nope. There's some sort of detail on the texture that implies escape pods, so those would take up some space. Some sort of mini living quarters including a cafeteria and stuff could be cool too, there's windows below the part I'm talking about.

Use your imagination ;)

As it is now though, the engine cores have TWO BLOCKS between spilling onto this garden place, so yeah. It's kinda dumb.

Re: GTC Fenris in Minecraft
Hades: in fairness, each of those blocks are a meter thick.

Ya... Sandwich was apparently really set on the garden idea, and so:


And from there it became a memorial garden:



I'm sure we missed a lot, we'll add them as we think of them on the wall.

He also wasnt kidding about the back side of fenris being glass:

Re: GTC Fenris in Minecraft
I Am Not A Kidder.


:nervous:

Kyad and Hades did a great job so far. Kyad helped with the garden, and Hades decorated and greebled the hull. They also both enjoyed playing with lava, and apparently had a blast removing and placing the same dozen blocks over and over again for nearly ten minutes. :p All's well that ends well, though, and the results speak for themselves! :D

He also wasnt kidding about the back side of fenris being glass:


That looks awesome - it's just the right feel I was hoping for - a peek into the innards. :D Do you think that when we have actual decks that end at that side of the hull, their edges should be stone? I think that would help to discern what you're looking at once we move on to the more densely populated decks.

Also, what about greebling? The work Hades did on the solid side is inset into the hull; we might be able to get away with replicating that on the open side as well, just with glass blocks.
