    posted a message on Large Brig Warship WIP
    So I decided that I wanted to build a boat on my server. My town is sort of a midevil port town so I thought a boat would be great. I am basing it off a boat in another game I play. Now I am really no boat expert, but in the game this boat is called a "War Brig" however "war" just refers to the most powerful tier of boats in the game so I guess the type of boat would just be Brig. Im not really sure what a brig is supposed to be like, but my ship is a warship. One thing I really wanted were working tnt canon broadsides. I really love tnt canons so putting them to good use would be awesome. I wasn't sure how it would turn out when I started but it has been coming along really really great. Anyway enjoy the pics!

    The first step was to get the general shape of the deck. I did a lot of comparing to the other games version to get it to look right. As you can see the boat is not in the water yet. I realized it would be a lot easier starting it on land and to just mcedit it into the water once the hull was done.



    Then I made the hull. This was surprisingly difficult. It took a lot of work to get it to look good. But I like the way it turned out. I am not sure if I want to add more design to the sides as the hull right now looks fairly boring as just planks. A few stripes of a different color might look nice. I also got a new texture pack. It is one a friend of mine made that I like.



    Once the hull was finished I did some interior and the canons!! There are a total of 24 canons, 12 on each side. They are two blocks apart in a line down the hull. Each one consists of 8 pieces of tnt, 7 pieces launching 1. Each side can be fired separately from a button next to the wheel. They work perfectly, however they need to be reloaded manually each time. I am using a explosion repair plugin (creeperheal) however it is not able to regenerate the tnt properly. It gets all confused as the tnt gets pushed around when fired. Is there any plugin that would be able to regenerate the tnt? Anyway here is a pic of all the wiring for all 24 canons.


    In addition to the canons I have started laying out the captains cabin and the below deck area. The captains cabin can be entered through two doors on the upper deck behind the wheel. It has a nice view out the rear of the ship and a small balcony. I am not finished with is yet, it still needs to be furnished.


    The below deck area is going to be the cargo hold and crews quarters. there is not much to see right now. It is simply the area below the tnt canons.


    And finally the real money shot. With the hull and everything finished it was time to set sail on her maiden voyage!! Of course there are not sails yet. Those are the next step. They are going to hit the sky limit (main mast hits it) so I wanted to put it in the water first to I know exactly how much space I have to work with. But even without sails I think she still looks amazing. Especially with the water shader mod! :biggrin.gif:

    posted a message on What was your best noob fail?
    Lets see, in my first world I build a nice little house in a mountain. I was a real noob back then and didn't know much. After about a week of working on the house I went exploring and lost it (didn't know about coordinates). I was forced to set up a new house, and after another month at my new house, it was looking pretty awesome and I was becoming less of a noob. Then somehow or another I stumbled upon my old house. And after exploring it for a minute I discovered I had put my crafting table on my first block of iron ore. :Skeleton:

    Yet another comment to add to the collection...
    Look, if your gonna get all up in my face, just FARK OFF! go find another topic! Look, I am doing the goddamn map, and you and the many, many, MANY other people can't stop me! I have set myself a goal and I intend to complete it. End of story. Bye bye.


    We aren't trying to stop you, we are simply trying to get you realize that what you are doing is IMPOSSIBLE for soooooooo many reasons. You had problems getting your laptop charged, well as G'orzak pointed out, be ready to buy hundreds more computers to hold the hundreds of thousands of terabits needed to store the entire map. And I have already mentioned the centuries it would take nonstop to complete it. Like I said we are not trying to stop you, we aren't even trying to make you look stupid, you are making yourself look stupid my blatantly denying facts with "i will do it". Either admit it now or in 6 months when you have one city done with trillions more to go.

    And what do you think people said about going into space? or when Americans fought the British, nobody thought they would win but they did. The point is, even if you think this is impossible, it doesn't mean it is.


    True, problem is this IS completely impossible. Ignoring that just makes you look stupid. I did the math to try and prove to you how immensely ridiculous this is, problem is sometimes numbers get so big you can't really imagine them anymore. 5 million earths, just try and imagine that, even if you can't. You can all try, you will just die before you cover 1% of the map. It is the truth, I wanted to avoid being mean about it but some people just ignore reality in their naive quest for the impossible.

    I am not trying to rain on your parade, but I think you really need a reality check. According to the wiki (need verification) minecraft's "infinite map" is really only useable within 32 MILLION blocks of the spawn. That means the world is 2.8 QUADRILLION (2,800,000,000,000,000) blocks or 28 TRILLION kilometers squared. Now the EARTH'S surface area is only 510 MILLION kilometers squared, so the minecraft world is 5 MILLION times bigger than earth!!!!! Putting that into chunks it is 11 TRILLION chunks. So if you only spent one second working on each chunk it would still take 180 BILLION hours to cover the whole world. And now if you had a 4 million people playing minecraft working on it, each person would have to spend 45000 hours, or 5 YEARS working in it non stop.

    So moral of the story is, give yourself a reachable goal. Find a seed with a good big island and colonize that. You could still even try to do the whole map if you really want to, you just won't be able to do it, period.

    posted a message on Can't get on my own sever
    So just last night I set up a server for me and my friends. It is working perfectly for them but when I try to log in it says "Connection lost. Server responded with an invalid server key" Sometimes it will work though. I am not sure why this is happening. I am playing on a different computer than I am hosting on, the host is a dell and I play on an iMac. Any suggestions?
