Hey guys! I thought I'd try making a Dreadnought out of colored wool in Minecraft, and here are the results. Completion time: ~1/2 Hour.
Comment/Critique below should you fell so inclined. Post your own if you have it!

That makes me want to LAUNCH FIGHTERS!

But really thats awesome, I have no idea how hard that would be to do since I have never played that game, are those things like stacked? I mean, I can see they're stacked but... is there like gravity involved?

A few blocks have realistic gravity, (sand, gravel, others I forget) but for the most part, blocks hover in Minecraft.

Now, to ensure Juffo-Wup isn't left unrepresented, let's hear it for.... The Mycon! (podship)


Note, that the Podship itself is asymmetrical. That's how it looks zoomed in for me. True Story.

Thats cool! I love pixel art... how long does it take you to make these er wait you said like 2 hours. Thats neat, I've never made pixel stuff or sprites with nothing to start from, well I did in Mario Paint on the SNES but I was following a diagram of something to go along with it and it has a grid for you to place the colors on and stuff but, never from total blank with nothing to follow, thats cool stuff man.

Given that I have a picture of the ship on half of my screen, zoomed in 'till pixelated. Though it takes some guesswork to covert the colors into a *few* shades of blues and greys, and no shades of anything else, really.

That's a standard worldgen option now, as of 1.1

A starbase would also be pretty cool.
