Two ships shooting at each other with wool 'beams.' :nervous:

 
Re: GTC Fenris in Minecraft
Hmm... that circle does indeed look like something important, but TBH, how likely would it be for there to be an opening or conduit from the outside to the reactor?

I'd love to hear any other ideas (besides reactor) about what that red circle could be, tho...

Escape pod launchers?  On a ship with as little armor as the Fenris, those would be pretty essential.  Of course, on a ship that explodes as fast as a Fenris, they'd also be a little useless.  ;)

They don't really look like escape pods and are a bit too big to be really practical, honestly.

Well, the aperture has to dialate before the baby escape pod can emerge.  Besides, the ship already has an arborretum and a bar.  Maybe it's time to add something to emphasize the fact that it's a decades-old tin can that will explode if a hostile pilot breathes toward it funny combat vessel.

Re: GTC Fenris in Minecraft
Progress report:

I finished a prototype for turret internals. I did it for the one turret facing the base station, and built a maintenance room around it. I presume we're presuming that there is a central control room presiding over all the turrets from one location ("Gunnery control, open fire!"), and not Star Wars Ep. 3-esque individually-manned turrets? Feedback please. :)

Also, I outlined a main hall on the deck above the current halls; seems to me that one hall works better than two in the narrower width available when it passes through the necks. Its floor is 8 blocks wide instead of 7 for the other decks; we can lower it to 6 if 8 is too wide. Let me know what you think.

Finally, I just added a possible type of elevator (zipper elevator!) to the front bulkhead of the CIC (one could go on the rear bulkhead of the CIC as well)... it uses pistons, but the game is way to laggy for me to be a valid tester - it works, but only when my computer gets the signals from the server in time, which usually only happens ~10% of the time. Could someone test it out and let me know if it works often enough to keep?

Miscellany so I don't forget them:
  • "Emergency" access stairwells near any elevators (and in many other places), for those times when the ship is under attack by that vicious alien race, the Laaag!!
  • Generally, maintenance areas should only have ladders for ascending/descending, not stairways.
  • Gunnery Control room (with labeled stations for each turret? ;7 )

I've already added a few escape pods and have some more places to put more. There's no need.

Re: GTC Fenris in Minecraft
Infirmary is done. :p I placed it right between the two airlocks since rapid access seemed logical. I'm quite happy with the result, but if anyone has any suggested changes or ideas, let me know!

Re: GTC Fenris in Minecraft
More quick idea recording:

- 4 elevator/drop systems, 1 in nose area (between infirmary and lounge), 1 in front of CIC, 1 behind CIC, and one in engine section. Each should have a drop array (drop shafts w/water breaks + water current to clear the bottom; openings in each deck above shaft bottom) and 2 rapid elevators; 1 to the top deck, 1 to the "primary" deck.
- Kitchen + buffet along rear of lounge; possible mess hall behind kitchen (if room & if needed); possible food farms above/below kitchen (wheat, melon, pumpkin, sugar cane, eggs).
- Set aside space for turret internals

A lag proof elevator has been developed by qaz and refined to meet Fenris desk level and cleanness specifications, only awaiting your test before they can be implemented. A stairwell next the each is still a good idea for going down only one floor though.

Also, the finished dropshaft:

And as you can see, some more of the shell was done too.

Re: GTC Fenris in Minecraft
I tweeted Jeb about my lag issues (not just mine - there's many thousands of results in Google on a search for the exact error I get) and got useful responses!

@jeb_ That's great to hear. :) Do you think it's something in the Minecraft #notchcode that's fixable?

@sandwich_hlp I'm sure it's fixable, problem is to identify what is causing it. But it seems to be server-side

@jeb_ Ok, well I can duplicate the issue in a vanilla (1.8.1) server reliably, so if you need help testing, I'm here. Thanks!

Thanks to Kyad for enabling me to confirm that the problem exists on a vanilla server.

Now we just wait and hope! :)

We kind of know for a fact that the GTVA uses artificial gravity of some sort, since you can see multiple people in cutscenes (and the main menus for that matter) walking around just fine. :p
