Minetest 5.4 mod: Airship

This mod implements an airship for minetest. This airship is affected by the wind. The wind better works with Climate API (and with climate API you can stop it using /set_wind 0 0 )



The fuel system isn't exists yet, so I don't recomend giving it to players yet if you put it into a server

Shortcuts: forward and backward while in drive position: controls the power lever left and right while in drive position: controls the direction jump and sneak: controls the up and down movement

  • right click into the external stair to enter it
  • E + backward while in drive position: the machine does backward
  • E + foward while in drive position: extra power
  • right click into drive wheel to activate pilot menu
  • right click into the internal ladders to go out
  • right click into any seat to sit your player
  • the anchor only works when the airship is near stoped

Remembering AGAIN, it is affected by winds, so it will need patience to learn to control

Tip: Drive it gently. The captain can leave the drive position to walk too If a player goes timeout or logoff in flight, the airship will "rescue" him if no other player enter it, so is a good idea wait the friend at a secure place far from anyone who wants to enter the airship.

Special functions: /external_attach_menu - it opens the menu to attach a plane into the airship (who watched Indiana Jones and The Last Cruzade will understand) to access the plane during the flight, go to the ladder at the end of the airship and right click it to release the plane during the flight, use /remove_hook (BEWARE: the airship have to be moving fast and the plane power have to be at 1/4 to avoid collision and death (for the plane pilot)) There is an option on pilot menu to activate the rescue mode. So if a plane (Supercub, Camel or Albatroz) wait bellow the ship belly IN FLIGHT, it will be automatically hooked after 3 seconds

Know issues: The walk movement inside the ship is affected by server lag, because the lack of an interpolation method on attach function.
