    Allrighty, I didn't want to do it, but my own shipyard thread is totally lame. CaC, I'd love it if you stopped by and gave opinions. http://www.minecraftforum.net/topic/1645990-dezibahns-shipyard/

    (Sorry, I swear it'll be the only time I ever post a link like that DX )

    Working on a new ship!

    *crickets*

    Um, ok, so looks like I'm the only person following... my own thread. Lame.

    BUT THE SHOW MUST GO ON!



    Some varient of a brig, according to Sid Meier. He's already let me down once, so let's see how far off this ends up being. All I have so far is the shape of the hull at centerline. Nice line, though, isn't it?

    **EDIT**
    Yup, misinformed again. Turns out this is going to be a Brigantine (historical, not modern)

    Quote from Jake Von

    By naturally generated, I mean generated naturally. I think tree growth (as it is a natural process, after all) would qualify. It might also be worth noting that there is a difference between leaves that are created by trees and those that are cut down and replanted, which is why the latter do not decay while the former do.


    Gotcha. Love your ideas. =D

    Quote from frosty022

    I have had the same idea. It would reflect part of the natural process of life (for trees). I totally concur with this idea of self-planting sapplings!


    Woo, another follower! Spread the word, every time this thread is about to die, someone pops up and comments on it again! XD If it stays around long enough, maybe someone will make it happen, at least in a mod?

    Any modders on this thread?

    Quote from littlejack616

    Good Idea! I support your idea!
    Diamonds! :Diamond:


    Woo, diamonds! Thanks for the support!

    In what way do you think the masts are disproportionate? To me, it looks like you may have started the yards a bit high... as though you could stand to lop off a few meters from the bottom of each mast, and shift everything down. Also, the bowspirit looks a bit... excessive? But that might just be the angle of the picture. Also, I don't know how long it's supposed to be IRL. :P

    That is indeed a fine looking hull... where do you find your schematics? I'll search for hours and never find anything nearly that useful.

    Looking forward to the progress!

    I really like how the bowspirit came out, that looks good! But why did you make it so short? Just my opinion, but I would've streched the hull a bit and added the second mast... But that's just me. :D

    New ship posted in the main post! I'd post it here, but... the thread really isn't big enough to justify it yet. =P Feedback is appreciated!

    Beautiful guide... I hadn't even thought about the tumblehome before... it's actually a great way to maximize interior space, too! My ships are rarely deep enough to have more than two decks, so I'll have to get used to that... and my first attempt at rigging looks like... well, like a first attempt. XD Your guide has definately given me some new ideas to work with!

    It's on page 27, near the top. 8 months of work.


    Ho-lee....

    Wow, Xinkc, you... I mean... It's...

    ...

    Very nice. I think you may have the best challenge build I've ever seen. Ever. Regardless of challenge.

    Thanks for the encouragement, I've got one ship up so far. Fairly boring, I might spruce it up a bit later on down the road... I'm sure you can find it (don't wanna post a link or anything and get yelled at for advertising =P). Rigging is going to be my nemesis...

    Come now gentlemen! Let's not fight, we're all shipwrights here. Let's declare war on the landlubbers first!

    Not if the war ends up with you on the right and me on the left:

    Ah, but sir...

    It is the mark of a true warrior, to be able to admit defeat and learn from the battle. I'd learn all your tricks eventually!

    Quote from CaptainGloom

    :D Aye, lateen sails are pretty hard to make. If you look at the previous page, I have a Xebec, a ship similar to that Barque, but the masts are straight unlike your ship's jutting foremast.
    As for the shipyards, it is not the other threads I worry about. It's what'll happen when only the shipyards are left. Mark me words, there'll be war.


    Oh, whoops. That's what happens when I don't look. One page off... lol... It's nice to see that my attempt at a xebec looks quite similar to yours, makes me fee like I might actually know what I'm doing! And hey, a war between shipyard threads would be... what's the word... epic? >=D

    Why such a lack of blocks? I think you should add log sides, at least below the waterline, because pure planks looks extremely bland. But the hull looks pretty good, as well as the leaning foremast.


    I'm impaitent. XD That's the quick answer. My reference was not super-detailed, so neither was I, honestly! I don't want to make a ship that's 2 or 3 solid meters thick, but I also don't want to have to have it look good outside but when you venture below deck, half the wall is one way and the other half is totally different. I'm trying to make these both look good AND be usable, which isn't always easy. Larger ships should have more detail. I'll try playing around more on my next one, I promise. ^_^;

    Lol, I've been schooled in one post... fail.

    This was my reference ship:

    So that's why it came out looking like that. I've never done sails like that before, so... yeah. They are far from good. I've never actually rigged a ship before, and with the sailplan on this one, I wasn't going to attempt it. My next ship, though, I may try...

    Also, editing the OP to a ) look like I know what the heck I'm talking about, and b ) REALLY confuse people who know nothing about ships. =D Thanks for correcting me!
