Titanic Construction

Post  Torn2010 on Wed Apr 11, 2012 1:13 am

"RMS Titanic was a British passenger liner that sank in the North Atlantic Ocean on 15 April 1912 after colliding with an iceberg during her maiden voyage from Southampton, England to New York City. The sinking of Titanic caused the deaths of 1,514 people in one of the deadliest peacetime maritime disasters in history"



This Sunday, April 15th marks the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic. As a tribute, and as a community build, I would like to propose the idea of reconstructing the ship to scale on the server. Based on the grand size of such an undertaking, I think that creative mode would be the most efficient way to accomplish this.

Everyone is welcome to participate in the construction, and any ideas are welcome. I thought it would be a great idea to take pictures and/or video of the construction throughout as both a means to commemorate the event, as well as to showcase the great talent that we have on our server. Very Happy

Anyone wishing to participate in the construction please reply in this thread. I will be updating this post tomorrow with the specifics (dimensions, materials, build location, etc), and would like to begin construction this Sunday, April 15th.

Since I want to do it 1:1 full scale, these are the dimensions (in blocks)...

Length: 269
Width: 28
Height: 53 (to top of funnels)

It's going to be a big project, hah. I was thinking we should do it on a solid flat piece of land (if Era or Prait is able to generate that it would be awesome), build the ship from the ground up, then fill the surrounding area with water upon completion.

I'm going to mull over some blueprints and schematics, once we have a designated building area, I'll mark the measurements so the hull's skeleton can be set up.

Can't wait Very Happy
