I would like to request a Portal Blimp for my corner of the world. Its coordinates are -21538, -10967.  The cuboid is marked with two light grey wool blocks. The funds are in my account.  If possible, I would like the Exodus air slip at -6965, 3625, which is S3 and S4 since I couldn't find any 61 length air docks. The air ship dimensions are 61x21x25.

The balloon and gondola ratio is fine, but as with the other airship, I'm not a fan of the style of the gondola here.  It's too modern.  Ships to Exodus need to keep to an 1800's style of design, think Steampunk and hot air balloons, and while you're using wood, the style here is definitely 1900's blimp.

This isn't an outright denial, but you'll need to change the gondola.  From the wiki page on airships:

The term "gondola" is used to describe a crew car of an airship, slung beneath the centre of the envelope. These may be short, for cockpit and landing gear alone, or longer to provide passenger space. Early gondolas were open structures slung beneath the envelope, later ones were enclosed and hung directly from the internal framing.

Think early. :)

What about one of these then? Of course final color won't be the same. Order I would like is left to right.

The balloons are too small.

If you do your original balloon with one of the first three gondolas, however....Smile

 

Edit: I did my first look at those on my phone.  I just got a better look.  If you do the first one, make sure you have some sort of propeller, and try to avoid those modern-looking deck guns.

I spent around looking at different airships and those was the only ones that would fit in the size limitations. I haven't done anything with them cause I didn't want to waste time just in case. Besides I am working on a new sky dock to dock one. I would probably replace the guns with propellers.

 

So anyways here is the updated version of #2. PS: I do not have this built on the server yet cause I am still working on my new air dock.

The balloon is 53x15x15 and the boat is 28x9x7

kooms, that's MUCH improved, thank you, but why make the balloon smaller?  It was nearly perfect before.  If you can, please try to keep to the max standard for the balloon with this size of gondola when you make it on the server.

Approved!LaughLaugh

Once you have the first one built in Arda, we'll set up your perms at the Skydock. Once the second ship is built, we'll activate the portal.

Thanks.  You don't need to mark it, and you don't need to remove anything.  Remember, due to a certain incident (you know who you are, if you're reading this) the process changed with Arda's opening: we don't WorldEdit copy the second ship anymore. Heck, even I'm doing my second ship by hand right now.

Tony or I will establish a subclaim at the Skydock for you, and you'll need to build the second ship.  It doesn't have to be block-perfect with the first one, but it does have to be unmistakably the same ship.

Should be exactly the same since I de-layer almost everything on my test server I got

Alright, your perms are set for S3 and S4.  I think it works, but let us know if it doesn't.  The claim starts at the level of the red glass block markers, and goes 50 blocks UP.  Do not build below the glass blocks, and do NOT modify the ground below in any way.  Doing so would be a violation of this build permission and subject to banning.

Once the airship is done, we'll modify the signs and build you a ramp, and frelling will activate your portal.

Good luck, can't wait to see the first airship in Exodus!Laugh

Great!  We'll make sure frelling sees this and gets the portal ready.  It's not posted here, so could you please post the exact coordinates of the origin and destination portals?  Please make sure it's marked with the requisite 3x3 area with a center spot.

As for stuff in cabins, those can only be on your side of the portal. Players will not have Container Trust on the Exodus side.

Sorry for the default, that was a frelling derp. Portals installed and active.
