Sponges only work due to server plugin awesomeness, I seriously think manual mining is going to be a bit... yeah...

Re: GTC Fenris in Minecraft
Now now, it's only ~300*100*64 blocks. Which is... um... almost 2,000,000 blocks :eek2: Ok, yeah, maybe we do need a bit of help :p

Fill the target area with dirt/gravel.  When you dig it away, the water will be gone.  That's how I cleared the water from my dome network.

You really want to do that for a ~300 x ~100 area?? :-/

Relative to the rest of the digging you're going to do, getting rid of a few layers of water at the surface via this method doesn't seem like a hell of a lot of extra work.  The sponges would be much quicker, though, assuming you've nothing against using items added via inventory editors.

Actually, I might have enough Lapis Lazuli that I could reconsider the use of steel....

What does Lapis Lazuli have to do with steel?

I have enough Lapis Lazuli to use it as a substitute for the steel already in my keypad.

Nope.  Lapis Lazuli can be made into blocks in the same manner as gold, diamond, and steel.  And it's purty.....

Re: GTC Fenris in Minecraft
Yep, we've been using it lots, thanks!

The mob trap is fully up and running now. A nice steady stream of gunpowder... :D It has to be picked up periodically, though. I can rig a timer for it later if need be.

Re: GTC Fenris in Minecraft
I moved the TNT for the Fenris project downstairs in the dorms into a /cprivate chest. It doesn't feel safe to have it lying around unprotected when we've had griefers running around lately.

I'll get it out to be moved on command of course.

You create a passworded chest with /cpassword <password> then to use it it, you do /cunlock <password>, punch it with left click, then you can use it normally until you log off the server.

Although it's probably safe from griefers to post the password in this thread, let's not and say we didn't. :) Use PMs instead. :)

Re: GTC Fenris in Minecraft
The Fenris now goes all the way to the bottom. Still shy of bedrock though. Anyway, to continue building up would take a lot of time just to mine out of space needed, but I'm hesitant to start using TNT at this point because I'd need to blow up rather large sections. I'll leave it to you guys to figure out how to proceed. You see, I use TNT with reckless abandon. :lol:

Re: GTC Fenris in Minecraft
2x1 tunnels with tnt every 4 blocks seems to work well. Space the tunnels every 3 blocks (tunnel block block tunnel) and you should be good to go.

I completed the dorsal hull tonight as well as the engines in back. However, the front neck looks out of alignment; on the graphic the top and bottom should align, but in the outline they don't appear to. Please recheck the bottom front hull to see if there's something you missed. :-/

Re: GTC Fenris in Minecraft
The Fenris has been designed with decks, correct?  we should give it rooms with windows where the texture has them.  Of course, there would be differences because they would be scaled more reasonably.

Yup, that's the plan.

I should reiterate that although I provided top-to-bottom cross-sections that are spaced like decks would be, they don't necessarily have to correspond to the actual internal decks we eventually build. If the windows in the textures point to different spacing (that makes sense), I'm all for diversifying things instead of mindlessly sticking to a rigid deck layout. :)

Re: GTC Fenris in Minecraft
 I've added some of the flat areas to the outline, either as outlines or fully filled-in. I've also ben working on removing the ground from above the underground sections of the outline. Fun with TNT! :)

Also, there are 5 chests of presents on the roof of the basecamp, courtesy of BlueFlames. Meantime, Kyad has been going smelt-crazy, and has smelted nearly an entire chest of smoothstone. It's coming together, lads! ;)

Oh yeah, one more thing. I have my house set to the top level of the fenris in case you need to get up there quickly.

Plus, it's his server and he pays the bills, so he can decide if he wants you to play on it, no questions asked.
On a lighter note, the Fenris is really starting to take shape now.

Re: GTC Fenris in Minecraft

Looking at it on the map, I think I see a small problem:  If you're going to build it from the top down, you'll need to keep the area underneath well lit, or as you block out the sun, you'll have hostile mobs spawning left, right, and center.
