More nerdish stuff

The Minecraft battleship is finished. I don't want to dwell on medical stuff right now*, and everyone is posting about seasonal stuff if they're not doing their regular writing-related posts, so I thought, what the heck, today just to be different you get a tour of the ship.

First off, a general fly down the length from stem to stern. I'm slightly hampered in getting an overall view because the pocket edition of Minecraft only renders things up to a certain distance away, then it vanishes into fog.

So far, a lot like building in Lego. But now the advantage of computer-based work shows. You can land on the deck and take a walk around on and inside. Here is a view of the aft turret from standing on the quarterdeck.

The interior of the ship is all detailed, from the sumptuous admiral's quarters in the stern... the spartan mess decks huddling between the forward turret mountings.
Through a maze of windowless corridors...
To boiler rooms...
Engine rooms...
And workshops...

There's lots more, but that is enough for one post. Another time I might post a more detailed tour as a separate blog page like the others listed under the banner.

* BTW - thanks for your words of support this week. Still awaiting test results but no further symptoms so fingers crossed that will be the end of it.


  1. It certainly looks complicated. Hope your test results come back clean.

  2. I would never be able to build that... Mine would just look like a big blob.

    Hope everything comes back good!!!



  3. I think I need to have someone (maybe you) explain what the hell Minecraft is. Did you create all this? If so, you're a damn architect. Also, fingers crossed with you, sir.

  4. Delores, tests so far have shown the supply to the brain is OK, no sign of damage, so likely a clot found its way there from elsewhere. They are now hoping to pinpoint the source of the trouble.

    Valerie, but I bet it would be a unique and interesting blob! Probably resembling an upheld middle finger or some other similar message to the universe :D

    Pickleope, yes I created all this. Minecraft is a hugely popular computer-based game where you can build stuff by placing colored blocks. The great thing is, it gives you a 3-D perspective from within the world you're creating.

  5. Wow, this is complicated stuff! I have no talent or skill for this. Very impressive,


I love comments. Please feel free to join in the discussion.

I also try to respond to comments. I usually do so during the early evening (Pacific time) which may be many hours away from now!

So if you leave a comment and return some time later and I haven't responded yet, please don't think I'm ignoring you. I'm not. Honest.
