    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.

    Hey I love this plugin so much and I thank u for taking the time to do this but I was wondering if you could make it so that when someone is controlling a ship that no one else can take controll of it.If you could then that would be great :). Thx again for this amazing plugin/mod.

    Hey i was wondering if you could also add a minimum number of blocks allowed to create a boat? So then ppl on my server are not floating on one block of wood. thx so much and i luv this plugin/mod.

    This plugin is great and I love it but I have one problem,
    I made my ship and it moves great but when ever I move it more than about 10 blocks in any direction all of my torches,redstone, doors,trapdoors,and ladders fall off.
    Is there any way to fix this???

    when i run this on my server from time to time it just kicks all the players out and crashes =_= is there any recommended ways to stop this from happening?

    I just tryed to move a ship, but it all broke apart. What could cause this? ALso, added all blocks that were in to boatable list.

    I have a feature(s) to suggest.
    1. Maybe you'll make cuboid support, like that in worldedit. To make a ship, you would need to mark 2 points(to make diagonal line of cuboid volume), than it would somehow save to server, and after each move synchronize with saved scheme. Maybe, with antigrief support (so only user would be able to edit in the cuboid, custumizable), and fire-tnt blocking (custumizable too). I guess that would fix break apart issue.
    2. ALso, if you will have a scheme, you could make a better collision calculation. for example each time you move, it checks if there would be any collision blocks, and if yes, the collision block from a ship would (for example) be destroyed and droped as item.
    3. Also, it would be possible to make a "sink down" option i.e. if the ship loses set amout of blocks (in %) it would slowly move down, until it hits unmovable blocks - so, the airships will fall down, if burnt with arrows, and simple ships will sink, till hit the ground.
  16. jackpot51 this plugin looks very nice, but I need one for my server whit that you could make ferries on the water, so could you please add a feature to make ferries/waypoints for the boats so that the boat is alltime traveling from waypoint 1 to waypoint 2 to waypoint 3... without a captain.

    I would be very happy if you could add that

    This is what's happening when I move the boat. View attachment 9455
    All the blocks that were placed one way, go funky. Did I miss something in the config that can fix this?

    Heya i wan't this PlugIn on the server i play on i own it with my friend
    My friend says we have to manually move it all the time
    And i say you can set the route one time and if a player boards the ship/plane it automatically moves to it's destination
    Who is right? oO i am really wondering
    Can't get it out of the other comments nor description of the Plugin, or i have been looking bad
    Please tell me

    This idea is really fantastic, but i built a big ship (about 300 Blocks) and when i started moving, my game crashed and nearly the whole boat disapeared. two blocks did not disapeared...

    Please update or write help :)

    Just new here... i love this concept .... we also have a cannon plugin that we put on our ships... but as of late when ever we would move the ship it will throw us out/ fall through the floor or walls/ or when we take off it just like falls apart..? not sure what to fix and i was wondering your views on the matter.

    picture is unrelated to the problem just showing :) i mean im talking about ships being under 500 blocks doing the glitches so some feed back would be great

    Anyway you can add a /boatmod reload command so that I don't have to restart the server each time I need to change the config file. Awesome plugin, btw...
