It really is amazing what genius builds that have come out of our little metaverse community. So many amazing things popping up on a daily basis that it’s almost impossible to keep tabs on. Although the best way to see what is going on in The Uplift World when it comes to spectacular sights is to jump in world yourself, with so many sectors, so many plots, and so many fascinating sights to see, it truly is hard to know where to begin. Although we try to vary where our spotlight shines, sometimes certain builds just jump out and scream for our attention. One such epic case in point is Cutty Sark of Buccaneer’s Bay (3250, 2000), a survival build in The Uplift World Gratitude sector that is sure to fill your sails with the winds of awe and admiration of what dumbfoundment is truly possible when will, passion, grit, and determination are brought to the fore.
No strangers here on WhereWeHideAllTheAlpha.com, brothers Stahlmann271 and Einfachnathi have really outdone expectations here with this most epic of builds. “When I first heard about the Gratitude Estate Sale, of course I was immediately enthusiastic because the larger plot regions connected together and making up each of the various Estates” says Stahlmann271. ” At first I thought to myself, buy an estate and then you’ll see what’s going on. So with that game plan in mind, I first visited the various plots that I was interested in. There weren’t really all that many that spoke to me and time was running thin, so finally I made a decision on a little bit short notice. There were actually three estates that I liked, but when the first ones sold so quickly during the Estate Sale livestream, I thought I would try my luck with Buccaneers Bay.”
“The benefits of this plot were quite obvious. We didn’t have to dismantle anything, and we could start building directly from the rail. My first thought was to build tortuga bay or a pirate’s nest. but it didn’t really come easily into my head. Later Ringo asked in discord who it was that actually got that estate. After conversing a little, finally he mentioned that he had had a ship in a bottle idea. For us Germans, ships in bottles truly are something special. Apparently they actually come from Germany (although I’m not really sure about this) and are also typically German. There are museums with many “buddelschiff” as they are called here, and everyone knows and are fascinated by them. All things considered, it was only logical that the idea excited me!”
“Gladly Ringo allowed me to utilize this idea and begin thinking about how to build it. An image slowly began to form in my head, and of course, considering the size of the estate I knew to do it right it would have to be big, like really big. We decided playing around with dimensions and came to the decision that the oval bottle would measure a diameter of 60×80 and measure alomost 150 blocks long. At the same time, I began looking for ships that would appeal to me to have inside a bottle. I’ve actually already been to the Jjsselmeer and the north sea with a Dutch sailing ship myself, and what an experience it was. I have to say, however, that most of the ships built in Minecraft strike me as a bit unrealistic. Finally though, I came across the Cutty Sark from LordDakr on Youtube, a clipper from England with three masts. I liked the fact that the ship is very close to the original. You can actually visit the ship in London, it’s a museum there.”
“Of course before we could commit completely, we needed to do a little research on the Cutty Sark. After comparing sizes and realizing it would pretty much fit perfectly, we planned how it would be laid out and began. First we filled the bottle with water, caught dolphins, and made a little event with tropical fish. Many thanks to everyone who helped us catch them. Despite all the sea life, it still looked too empty, so I built some coral to fill it out a bit.”
Interestingly enough, they also decided to utilize the storyline of the actual ship and meld it with some interesting aspects of their personal experiences in blockchain and crypto. Being super fans of the Alpaca Worlds project, they reached out and got permissions to be able to place the project logo on the ship sails. They also created some shops on the ship which allows for those who visit to purchase wool, one of the original goods transported by the Cutty Sark, as well as a few other things.
“The ship was built inside a giant glass bottle, with a coral reef lining the base. The whole project was build in survival mode and it took us around 4 weeks to gather resources and build it. It is also our entry into The Uplift World Gratitude Build Contest”
And there you have it ladies and gentlemen, that right there is the story of how the Cutty Sark came to be inside The Uplift World Buccaneer’s Bay Estate in Gratitude. And although the sun may have set on this formidable build, knowing this is only a small portion of what these two brothers are capable of in everything they have done and continue to do with us here in the metaverse, let us just say that we are super stoked for the next day we get to feature the next one.
Not sure if you can fathom waiting that long? Well, we’d suggest beyond the obvious of getting in metaverse and checking out the Cutty Sark yourself, if you have not already done so that you check out our previous post featuring Stahlmann271 and Einfachnathi’s UpLuft build focused on The Giant Melon Shop below and take a tour of that too.
