EMC Imperial Navy

Discussion in 'Share Your EMC Creations' started by Raaynn, Nov 26, 2016.

  1. So, having been playing around for the past six months on EMC, I have slowly been working towards an overall building plan that I kind of had in mind, but will take some time to complete. I wasn't really ready to post on it yet, however LuckyGreenBird has kind of pushed me into starting it, as this thread will make it easier to respond to his invitation.

    Some players are already familiar with my main res (Bloodbeard's) and possibly some of my other builds, though most are at an early stage of progress. I have always been greatly interested in ancient civilizations, which is in part why I was drawn to try EMC... just because of the name Empire Minecraft. So I came to take a look and here I am. Now that I have been playing at building, I decided a couple months ago on this long-long term project, and the first phase is slowly progressing... Built the first res as I enjoy fishing at times to relax :)

    So... thus is born the EMC Imperial Navy... with ships under construction throughout the Empire, in designs taken from over a wide expanse of centuries...Obviously all the designs are only loosely based on real ships due to the restriction of both minecraft, as well as the area that I have to work with (ie residence size). I am now designating all my ships with EMCS (Empire Minecraft Ship) So far, just having a lot of fun!

    Warning: Little or nothing is to scale, purely creative, and any resemblance to actual ships, floating or sunken, is purely coincidental.

    PORT ROYAL (under construction - starting on interiors)

    Utopia: Town: res 5001
    EMCS Emerald of the Empire: Work in progress, as the ship design is integrated with 100 working canons, and will host the "Royal House" including most of the staff. It is the Flagship of the EMCS fleet. This ship, as stated below, is based on the ship HMS Royal Sovereign (1786). She is now accompanied by the EMCS Rainbow Warrior, to be captained and crewed by Chin and Alts. Landscaping still to come as well as several warehouses, and ships interiors have a ways to go yet.


    Smp6: Town: res 12010
    EMCS Nether Star: Basically completed. The first of my ports, located on my home res on smp6, is where I’ll begin, with the creation of the first ship of the fleet. This pirate ship is based on the merchant ships favored by many pirates back around the 17th century. Make sure to visit the new locker of Davy Jones under the sea, where many a sailor have gone to their final rest.

    NORTHPORT (mostly completed)

    Smp6: Town: res 12011
    Expanding the first onto a neighboring residence, as I like this spot for fishing, I decided to play around with some older designs with some future plans in mind:
    EMCS Dragons Tooth: Is based on the style of earlier smaller ships, which often would have had oars as well, though I haven’t found a way to recreate that to my satisfaction as yet.
    EMCS Triremis: Facing off with the first is a version of a Roman Trireme as used by the military, often fitted with a ram on the bow. Also would be fitted with banks of rowers.
    EMCS Shesmu: So from an earlier period still I played around with ideas for an Egyptian style barge on the dock, which was accompanied at one point by a birch bark canoe… which wasn’t to my satisfaction and has hence been dismantled….

    EASTPORT (under construction)

    Smp6: Wild East: East outpost
    Stage one was to start the construction of the harbor, including a classic style roman lighthouse, as well as docks for the members of the settlement. A large warship is in the upcoming plans.
    The dual boathouse is based on an actual irl build.

    SMP6: Wild East: Public Farm Hub island
    EMCS Ender: Here I wanted to construct a lone dark-hulled pirate just offshore, carrying 6 canons. It is a slightly smaller version than the style ship based on a gran carracca design. It can be located on the side of the isle where Ellisbrewers Lighthouse is!

    Harbour of the Vale (under construction)

    Smp6: Wild South: Sunnyvale Outpost
    A center of trade and defense, the Harbour at the Vale is well underway, currently with 3 ships in various stages, Warehousing facilities, a tower and keep for defense of the river-way, and soon to come fishing town.
    EMCS Arrow: A smaller gunship in permanent defense of the harbour. Built of dark oak with 10 canons.
    EMCS Coral: A small medieval style cargo ship designed for transport and a small crew. Currently based out of the harbour for trade in ores and resources locally.
    EMCS Nautilus: Still under construction, the Nautilus is an 88-canon gunship intended to defend the coastal waters of the Vale from potential invasion.

    Port of Haven (under construction)

    Smp7: Wild: True Haven Outpost
    A center of trade and defense, the Port at True Haven has begun construction for trade and defense of the new outpost for the Empire. Two ships of the Imperial Navy have been stationed here, alongside ships of other merchants.
    EMCS Flame: A small ship in permanent defense of the inner harbour. Built of dark oak with 8 canons amidship.
    EMCS Efficiency: A medieval cargo ship designed for transport of goods and livestock. Currently based out of the port for trade and transport.
    EMCS Smite: 100-gun First rate ship located in the outer harbour for defense of the colony and greater seas around True Haven.

  6. Yes my friend... right on the mark. Excellent eye!

    Needed to update here as the 100 canons are now active and fully functional. Now I can continue with the interior decks as time permits.

    Course I can only shoot fireworks as fire charges dont work on emc.... so fortunate for my friend Toade next door.... :)

  16. EGADS!! She actually FLOATS! Thank goodness for that. Now ready to begin work on the harbour buildings and landscaping.

    A very special shout out to Bonnie & Clyde who fronted me enough gravel to prep. All set and waiting for the water update to properly complete the underwater landscaping... I am quite excited about that one :)

  17. Updated with additional Harbour of the Vale, and her respective vessels. Working in the wild is a bit more challenging, but the additional space and possibilities are intriguing....
