Ever wonder what Fox McCloud and his animal fighter pilot friends get up to when they’re off-duty? Your questions may be answered in the form of a Minecraft build, because within berg_’s gigantic, to-scale recreation of the Great Fox mothership from Star Fox Zero, we can finally peek into the lives of Slippy, Falco, Peppy and Fox.
Much like other sci-fi vessels, like the Starship Enterprise and the Death Star, there are all sorts of options for both recreation and work: Swimming pools, cafeterias, shooting ranges, and even farms. But it’s not just pretty to look at — there’s full redstone lighting, the bridge has control over the ship’s functional cannons, and there are drop bays for the Blue Marine sub and the Landmaster tank.
Berg_ says it took a year to finish the build, created entirely from scratch, and that they had “no idea” that it would take that long. Nevertheless, “I’m glad I went on this journey,” says berg_, “and I’m excited to finally share it with the world.”
If you’d like to take a proper look, the map is available for download on Planet Minecraft. Just please don’t do a barrel roll in a ship that big.
