We are RedLine Empire. Building boldly being one of our 532 mottos means we also apply that to our port and naval facilities. Take the Imperial Port Zalpa, located in beautiful sector C33. We even have a motivation shanty to share. Our sailors sing this going into battle, or when the seas are rough, or when they're swabbing the deck, or simply for the Captain's amusement.
To Sail a Ship,
‘tis to Sail a Ship.
And when the seas blow,
and my tummy tums hurts,
I blow me chunks,
All over me night shirt.
OH give me some rum or give me tums,
But please don’t give me the lobster salad.
OH to Sail a Ship,
‘tis to Sail a Ship.
Even though the ship
Has a nuclear reactor.
Oh to set sail with a nuclear reactor,
Turning green and glowing,
The Min’stry should have opted,
For more than tin foil plating.
A RedLine sailor never dies,
At least not in battle,
But we get seasick
In a radioactive sardine can.
CATEGORY 8: Naval Fleet / Port Facility (MILPO)
Modern fleets combine surface warships, submarines, support ships and ship-based aircraft to conduct naval operations at sea.
Your Naval Fleet must comply with the following 4 SPECs:
1. Your Naval Fleet must include a minimum of 6 distinct vessels, the type and style of which is left up to the builder. All vessels must be nano-scale (people cannot be seen) with each individual vessel not to exceed the following dimensions: 12 studs long, 4 studs wide and 3 bricks tall.
2. Your Naval Fleet must include a Sea Shanty in the write-up of no less than 100 words in length.
3. Your Naval Fleet must include a nanoscale (people cannot be seen) Port Facility including a minimum of 1 crane, 1 building and 1 road or railway. The Port Facility must be large enough to accommodate all 6 of your vessels at one time and you must have a photograph of all 6 ships together in the port. Please note the water does not have to be made out of Lego, paper, glass or other solutions are acceptable.
4. You must designate a territory to house your port facility on your ORBAT and it will be represented on the map with an anchor icon. If this territory is captured, your port facility is considered destroyed and you must rebuild the Port Facility with an original design in order to get the MILPO from the category. You are NOT required to rebuild the vessels.
Rendering this was a real pain due to all of the 1x1 and 1x2 tiles that were in the transparent spectrum.
I would have included more pictures, but each render took about an hour.
As can be seen, all ships are within the 12sx4sx3b spec. The Leadership of RedLine Empire prizes diverse equipment,, so we have from left to right: Destroyer, Aircraft Carrier, Supply Ship, Submarine, Super-Secret Stealth Ship, and our smaller Cutter.
