Author Topic: [SAVES PURGE] Airships  (Read 928 times)

This series shows my builds over the past eight years of playing Blockland. Even though they're unfinished, who knows if I will ever finish them. Even if I never do, I believe they deserve to be shown to the public - as I would not forgive myself if they drifted away into the cyber-void - were lost forever - and the only remembrance of them anybody had was only in my own head.

A blimp is - in layman's terms - a small cabin slung to a giant balloon.
An airship is multiple times larger, and has an internal structure.

This airship was the first one I had ever made. I started with a section of large rings, which I gradually filled with traversable ship decks.
The more I worked on it, the more I realized both the shape and design was unpractical, unrealistic, and way too large.

Cross-section of ship decks.

After the final vision of that ship slowly became completed I realized a couple things;
  • The long, perfectly cylindrical shape was neither realistic nor resemblant of the mighty airships of the early 20th century.
  • This was a broad-strokes creation. I did not feel as if I had put as much detail into it as I could have.

This prompted me to create a smaller airship, whose added attention to detail would outweigh the sheer size of my previous creation.


Side profiles of ship - unfinished.

Glass observation window in bar area - unfinished.

Lower dining area and atrium - for larger groups.

Upper dining area and atrium - for smaller groups.
