Helloo, i want to build this balloon in arda, it will be made out of prismarine and will have a little more details in the final version. Here is the prototype

 

One will be sitting at my base, docked close to the ground and the other one i want to build it around 80 blocks high on the sky above an ocean, around x:-21200 z:17500

 

Also was wondering if i could make the tail longer, like 3 blocks

 

Hoping it gets approved, thanks in advance :->

It's a very interesting design!  Three things:

  1. The length is not an issue.  That standard is only for Exodus ships.  For non-Exodus ships, the only standard is that they be sea-worthy or skyworthy. Which....
  2. Prismarine is not.  Neither is Clay.  I know a few of the balloons in Exodus are made of Clay, that was an oversight on my part that has been accepted but won't happen again.  The only acceptable materials for airship balloons and sails are cloth.  Maybe glass.
  3. It's not "balloony" enough. It just looks like a Guardian with a basket hanging below.  From a flying position, it will not look like a balloon, but a build of a floating Guardian, which isn't in keeping with the rules.  If you could, please at least elongate the bottom of the balloon.

If you can make those changes and repost a pic, we'll be able to judge.  Thanks, and good luck.

well switched all to wool, sadly wont get to make it as detailed as i wanted due to lack of wool colors

 

also made the tail longer and bigger, it is also hollow and elongated the bottom of the balloon, here are some screenshots

A little detail lost is acceptable for a balloon that could stay in the air. :)

The elongated bottom is....sufficient.  I was sort of hoping for more than just two blocks.  It still just looks like a "floating Guardian" to me and not a "Guardian hot air balloon," which is a slippery slope when we're approving something that will be flying.

But so long as it's built like this....it'll be alright.

Design approved.  Once you've built them both, post the coords for portal activation.  Thanks.
