Hey there! Today, lets build a Big Ship!
Step 1: You’ll need a vast body of water, like this one!
Step 2: Materials, Materials, Materials! Below is a list of materials you’ll need!
For the Boat and Sails:
- Wood Planks
- Wood Planks Slab
- White Wool
- Red Wool
- Oak Wood, or some other Wood.
- Stone Slab
- Torches (Not Shown)
- Chests (For Holding food, Not Shown)
For the Cannons:
- Dispensers (Not Shown)
- Fire Charge, or any “long-range” weapon (Not Shown)
- Wood Planks (you should already have that, just listing it here too 🙂 )
- Wood or Stone buttons
Step 3: On to building! Mark where your boat will be, this is your marker that you will build on to.
Step 4: Start making the boats hull shape, with a long thingy at the front and not the same at the back!
Step 5: Replicate the shape on both sides, destroy the Front Thingy on the side facing toward me in the camera!
Step 6: Again Replicate the blocks, but not as many (like 5-7 less) on both sides.
Step 7: Mark our boats outline!
Step 8: Mark a bit higher on the front and back.
Step 9: Switch to your wood, build at least twelve blocks high.
Step 10!: Put three wood blocks outwards both ways, build up three, outwards again with the same length as below, then build up another two.
Step 11: Build out the shape of your mast.
Step 12: fill in the mast one block ahead, sails up!
Step 13: Add another three blocks outwards (two blocks below the first mast) both ways.
Step 14: Hang up our lower and smaller second sail! you don’t need wind on this one as it may look funky.
Step 15: Repeat Steps 9 to 12 for another mast!
Step 16: Start adding wood slabs around the ship, first at the front.
Step 17: Add slabs at the rest now.
Step 18: To mark our ship, use your Red Wool for a waving flag!
OPTIONAL: If you want this to be a pirate ship, you can build a Lookout Porch of where people look out for treasure!
Step 19: Replace the slabs around the inside of the ship with Stone Slabs!
Step 20: Place down your material chest, Put the food and materials inside.
Step 21: Since there will be a lot of nighttime sailing, we must add torches around the ship. Remember that you can only put torches on full blocks, like double slabs.
If you have done a Lookout Porch, add torches all around so the watcher can see well.
Step 22: These final steps are optional but try them out anyway! Every good Ship needs a Cannon, break one of your plank blocks and replace it with a dispenser! Put your ranged weapon inside of your dispenser, now press Control and the middle mouse button on the dispenser and you’ll get a duplicate of your filled dispenser!
Step 23: Now to launch our dispenser, put a Plank block in front of the back of the dispenser and a button on the Plank block. Press it and kaboom! well, whatever you put in there, something will happen, I used Fire Charge, which is what Ghasts shoot.
Step 24: Remember when I said our Ship needed A Cannon, I meant our Ship needed EIGHT CANNONS! Just repeat the steps!
Congrats! you finished the Ship! In only 24 Steps!
Another view of the finished Ship!
Here is me! Holding a Wooden Sword and wearing a Leather Chestplate!
Here I am! Defeating undead creatures on board!
As you have noticed, the ship looks great in shaders!
