    If you have looked at the map in the last 12 hours, you would have noticed the biggest Aqueduct, Me, Callie and Ma_c_hi spent quite a few hours last night putting in a giant Aqueduct from spawn to The Cove, Its nowhere near finished yet, But Since im going to get a lot of questions about it, I would like to answer them publicly now.

    • Quick path from spawn to other areas along the way, ends up at the cove at present, its a dead stop but could easily carry on across the land mass, (expansion, so don’t build in its way, I will tear down anything that gets in the way)
    • We will have an automated ship that can transport people down this giant aqueduct.
    • We will have Access points down the whole thing, thats to come
    • We will have stations down the entire thing, This is so people can start making paths off it, and then towns etc.

    What I still need help with:

    • I need a medieval boathouse design at either end, It’ll act as a “station” covered boathouse, and also maybe function as a transport system .
    • I need a boat! I have no idea what type of boat(s) to put on this aqueduct, Show me some designs!
    • It needs a name! You get a greeting message when you access that area, At present I called it “Pirate Federation aqueduct” But that does not mean anything, It’s just a place-holder.
    • Im in need of aqueduct builders for the entire claim! This is to add stations etc off it, I will handle expanding the length of the aqueduct if this project actually works.

    For the design, the waterway is way too small at present, Im going to expand it, Im also going to “Smash it up” a bit, to make it look like ruins and 90% of it needs the legs fixed still, It may take me a while to get this sorted.

    I did overlap some builds on my journey, I should be able to give permission to build onto the aqueduct for these people, reply with /getpos at the location you want access in.

    In terms of a name, the trans continental aqueduct! How wide is this canal/stream, could do a simple houseboat, or a rowboat.

    No the biggest ship that could fit there would be 6 blocks long because it would have to turn i made a simple design.

    I as thinking of something much longer, almost carages like a train, These aqeducts used to have “barges” float down them slowly.

    Hrm i checked out the canal i am sad to tell you there are some things in the way of those great ideas.
    First: The trapdoors won’t allow blocks on eyelevel so no ship with blocks on eylevel could move through there.
    Second:You could avoid that with deeper ships but the canal just isn’t very deep.
    Third: Turning around gets quite complicated when you have a 6X6 blocks area for a ship to turn that is any larger than 3X6 blocks

    I guess the best idea would be to let boats  float on that stream.
    It would still be pretty fast but because of the obvious curves and everything there would be no problems with shipheights or speed or such…or you take a small shgipdesign like my awesome one 😉

    So I’ve made a boat house, its a bit large, but the aqueduct fits right under it with ease. At first I started making a normal boathouse, but I couldn’t find good pics for inspiration, so I started making it a train station looking thing, but with wood. This is the end result:

    @captainvenoms This is PERFECT! The best thing about this design is that I think we could easily add onto it, Do you want to build it in-game or send a schematic?

    I have a build server at games.piratemc.com now, I don’t think anyone is aware of it, I really need to sort out any issues with it, so people can use it to build/test things.

    I’m glad you like it! 😀 I’ll probably build it in game, or in the build server, since I don’t know how to make a schematic XD
