oh my god breathe taking simply breathe taking. You must have this for download!
Unfortunately, we don't release the map for download. You CAN, however, apply online and come explore the server whenever you please :biggrin.gif:
Apr 21, 2011Hey guys-- here's my latest creation, a double-scale airbus A380. It has a full interior, both floors, first class, shower/spa, bathrooms, bar, and of course, a jazz club :tongue.gif:Posted in: Screenshots
--More info below, after pictures--
[>>-i>] This was built on an SMP server-- unfortunately we don't make our save file public but if you'd like to explore the plane you can hop on the server, find me (aitren) and ask for a teleport, I'd be happy to show you around :biggrin.gif: (IP is thevoxelbox.com)
[>>-i>] "But Aitren, why is there no landing gear?" Now there is! It's been updated ;P
[>>-i>] The work for this plane was spread out over the course of 4 days, but in total it probably took me about 6 hours. I had a lot of tools at my disposal (VoxeSniper, worledit, flymod) to get things done efficiently :wink.gif:
[>>-i>] The texture pack I'm using is the official VoxelBox texture pack, a modified version of the painterly pack. You can download it here.
[>>-i>] The dimensions of the plane:
Height (inc. tail): ~40 (I'll have to double check this, I made some edits)
Fuselage Width: 14
Fuselage Height: 16
-Note* The plane is 1:2 scale with the real-life A380 (1m = 2 blocks)
By popular demand, the plane now has LANDING GEAR! Enjoy :biggrin.gif:
And here's a little bonus picture of the plane on the latest cartograph :tongue.gif:
Any thoughts or feedback is welcome :biggrin.gif:

GR-7 Security DivisionHello Professor Tagonist.
Begin Orders Transmission
You are being sent to the mining station beyond Tarsus 3 to locate and apprehend wanted criminal Dr. Earl S. Testudine. Due to the nature of his crimes he is considered armed and dangerous, and any force you deem necessary may be used against him.
The mining station is sparsely populated and only capable of supporting a few conscious workers at a time. If Testudine is not awake when you arrive, enter cryogenic stasis until he is next scheduled to awaken.
Your operative contact in the region is Captain Schmidt, he will coordinate with you on this and have further instructions.
Deep Space Turtle Chase is an adventure and puzzle game that uses Minecraft’s engine as a creative “blank slate” -- members and friends of The Voxel Box have spent more than three months shaping it into something extraordinary, and we think you’ll agree... it was totally worth the wait!
The map is available for both single player and online co-op with up to four players. You’re able to fully explore the entire space setting, solve challenging puzzles set throughout space, and experience some of the finest Minecraft architecture you’ve ever seen.
Here’s a sneak peek:
What started as a cool idea from CaptainSparklez for a space themed Minecraft adventure map using our original Deep Space texture pack has evolved into a whole ‘nother beast. Using the client mod MAtmos the game now has evented music and sounds, taking it to a new level of immersion with an awesomely spacey ambiance.
Combine that with an all-star cast of Minecraft geeks doing voice narration, customized soundscapes that will take you into orbit, PhD-level redstone engineering, and the collective talent of artists that call The Voxel Box home — and you’ve got something that isn’t just an adventure map.
It’s something special, and to experience it as intended you can’t just download it and stick it in your Minecraft folder. We’ve made it super easy to get up and running though!
You’re just eight simple steps away from a painless game install:
1) Backup your Minecraft data folder!
2) Download the latest version here and extract the folder somewhere.
3) Also download MCNostalgia and extract to the folder.
4) Open Minecraft, go to options, then force update to get a clean Minecraft.jar
5) Following the steps on the MCNostagia page Downgrade your minecraft version to Minecraft Beta 1.8.1.
6) Use the .exe (for windows) or .jar (for linux/mac) in the Deep Space Turtle Chase installer to modify your client
7) Open Minecraft again, select the Deep Space Turtle Chase texture pack
8) Go to Single Player, select the map, and enjoy!
Keep in mind that the map is designed to be a true adventure game!
You will need to be alert and observant of your surroundings and be prepared to explore the vastness of space and alien worlds to progress. If you're expecting "do this look at that now do this" style gameplay, you're going to be disappointed and probably won't enjoy Deep Space Turtle Chase very much.
If you've got a good eye for detail, an eager and curious inner explorer, aren't afraid of challenging puzzles and pitfalls (and the greater sense of accomplishment conquering them gives you), and you have a sense of humor -- this map will probably be the most fun you've had with Minecraft in a long time.
What are the rules?Set your difficulty to Peaceful, don't destroy or place anything but the green Power Plugs (redstone torches)... and remember your training!
GR-7 Security Division
Good luck, and have fun!
Update 10/18: We released DSTC v1.2 last night with a few changes, Among them:
All beds are now working as intended! (Some beds are broken in the ares on purpose, this is not a bug.)
Turrets outside the digsite will now arm when master unlock code is entered
and I fixed the lava-run tube and lava-jump course underground to be less rage-inducing!
Update 10/17: We released DSTC v1.1 last night, tons of bugs have been squashed. If you're still having trouble after downloading the new version, please let us know.
The crash on game start bug may be caused by Minecraft freaking out about player position being inside a block. It doesn't happen for everyone, and doesn't happen if you stay still until the cryopod melts and releases you.
All issues with custom sounds for Mac clients should be resolved now. Please make sure you're using the latest version (the installer now works for all platforms).
If you still can't play, this may work (thanks yiker!):
When you force updates in Minecraft, the Soundfiles aren't extracted at first, you have to trigger them once, until they can be found in your .minecraft/resources Folder. If they aren't triggered and you run the installer, triggering a sound will let Minecraft try to extract a sound, which probably interferes with the mods and lets it crash.
To prevent this, after forcing an update in Minecraft you have to run around in any normal vanilla map and trigger all the different sounds, for walking on different materials swimming etc. After that, you can run the installer and it will not crash.
Crashed while trying to play this on your hacked, unpaid client? That's too bad.
If all else fails, you can download the vanilla DSTC package and extract the world file and texture pack into your Minecraft folder. It's way better with the mods, though!
If you really must play DSTC using a 1.0.0 or 1.1 client use this updated vanilla version: Deep Space Turtle Chase Vanilla v1.2.1.
