    BoatMod - Add large moving objects
    Version: v12

    This plugin adds the ability to make large structures like boats, submarines, and blimps move, along with the players aboard them. It currently allows the usage of the blocks listed below in boats and allows one boat per person on the server. Configuration can be done by editing the default.cfg file or creating a new .cfg file.

    In order to use this mod, you must first captain a boat by left clicking on a block in the boat while holding a boat item. You should click the block that you want the boat to rotate around while facing the front of the boat. You can rotate by facing the way you want the boat to rotate and left clicking while holding a map. You can then move by right clicking in the direction you want to move while holding a map. You can hold down right click to continuously move. You may change your speed (blocks/click) by using the /boatspeed command with a number argument (for example /boatspeed 1 would move the boat one block per right click). If you run into any other blocks, the boat will not move. If the boat is damaged, the blocks will remain damaged.

    • Lets players create large moveable structures like boats.
    • Moves and rotates these structures.
    • Moves any entities that are standing on the structures.
    • Checks for collisions and damage.
    Permissions Support (open)
    In order to implement permissions, look at the default.cfg in the plugins/BoatMod directory. Next to each value in the [CONFIG] section, you can add the permissions node that you want to use followed by a colon. The default permissions nodes are boatmod.admin and none (which is used by non-permissions players). For example, you could make the MaxSize for default players 0, which would make them unable to make boats. You could also add a node (perhaps boatmod.player for a player that can use boatmod) and then set the maximum values for that node. These permissions may also be applied to each script with the syntax node:name of script.
    Boatable Blocks (open)
    Boatable Blocks:
    These blocks may be changed by adding or removing materials to a config file beneath a [MATERIAL] tag, materials are defined in

    Scripting (open)
    The script engine exposes the boat that was setup with the script as an object named boat. Several public functions may be accessed that allow the control of this boat. A demo script named autoship moves a ship in a straight direction whenever the sun rises or sets.
    • getCaptain() returns the Player object that created the boat.
    • Message(String message) sends the captain a message.
    • setSpeed(int movespeed) sets the speed of movement in blocks per move.
    • Move(Vector direction) moves the boat in the direction specified by the vector. It returns true if there was not a collision.

    Could you add an option to set a specific path that happens at a certain time each minecraft day?
    So eg at sunrise a boat travels (even if its a straight line) to the shore of another area, and when its sunset it travels back. Would be great on my RPG server :D

    This. This. And this. Also make it keep sign text (my craftbook bridge died :()

    That should be a pretty easy thing to setup will be much harder than I thought-I guess some sort of command could handle that. I should have this in the next release within the next two releases.

    RedStone/Torch support?
  15. Offline


    Currently torch support. Redstone circuits get stuck too much when they are moved and I am trying to fix this.

    So basically I have been working on using a command to setup a boat with a javascript file that can move the boat. It works well for automation but I have had some problems with water blocks disappearing as automated boats move in water.

    The scripting is finished, come check it out. I would recommend backing up your world first just in case something goes wrong-it hasn't been tested extensively.

    nice. it is still too bad that minecraft registers spawn locations as tied to a block of air instead of a block of material

    Awesome i'll try this out today :)

    Awesome, just awesome
    The next important thing would be a Permissions Support (easily made) with a permissions for :
    - creating boats
    - using them
    - limiting speed

    For the speed, just 2 limit speeds would be nice like a with-permission limit and a without-permission

    It's the only things I would like to be added
    Your plugin's just enjoyable
    Look at my Hot-air baloon (yes I know it's not a boat ^^)

    Ok I'm probably being REALLY stupid but how do you use this?
    I've just woken up
    Oh i got it :p

    Whats the default boat item?
    Ive just made a wooden plateform in the water. Can this be used as a boat (raft) or do boats need to have specific properties?

    You just have to build a strucutre in boatable blocks (in wood it's ok) and then left click on it with a boat (the Minecraft item)
    There is no specific design for boats
    For example I made a hot air baloon

    And Yes lag is a bit important ^^

    Oh, well I made a large pit of water, the made a 4x4 platform of wood in the centre and tried left clicking with boat but it didn't work :/ (after doing /boatmod [script] i mean.
    I'll try again later,
    Thanks for the rply

    changelog has to be at the end
    I suggest using SPOILER tag for those screenshots
    version range should really be used when needed only
  23. Offline


    Yes it can. A wooden boat (333) is the default boat item. Then using a map (358) you can move the boat.

    Did all those things.

    Nice balloon! I'll see if I can get permissions into the next release.

    If you want to use the script, do a /boatmod autoship. It works by moving the boat in the direction you are facing when you apply it so face the direction you want it to move at sunset/sunrise. You can check if it works by doing a /time set 0 or /time set 12000 (the first if it is already night, the second if it is day)
    Also check the server log to see if any errors occured.

    OHHHH autoship automatically moves it lol. I thought it was to apply the manual moving :p
    I'll try that now ;D

    question, this is like the exact same with movecraft, but is this smoother or something?
  26. Offline


    I got permissions support in.

    It has its differences with movecraft. Vehicle creation is easier, water management allows vehicles to move in and out of water (movecraft will not let water crafts move upwards or downwards out of and into water), it has larger vehicle size limits, and maybe more things (I haven't really compared my plugin that much with movecraft).
    I am not really sure as to how smooth it is when compared to movecraft.

    Can you organize your post with a Feature part and a Permissions nodes part because it's not really easy to read all the informations in the large text

    Thanks for the Permissions support ^^

    Just wondering ;) Do you know in 818, Minecraft 1.6, ice forms over a lake :/ i would assume it's because of the biome being a cold one however i have a no weather plugin installed. Does this not effect biomes and will ice always form?
    I know this isn't to do with your plugin just wondering if you knew why, and how to stop it :)
  30. Offline


    Yes ice is forming because of the biome
    I'm searching how to stop ice and snow regen but not a lot of time this week

    However, is lava functionning like water with your plugin ?
