Hello everyone! I'm the guy who never gets replies on his topics... Anyway, I would like to nicely request an update to the Zeppelin mod. In case you have amnesia, the Zeppelin mod was an epic mod that would allow you to craft certain blocks to control your mobile builds in your world. This mod hasn't been updated since 1.2.5. I never used this mod before and I don't want to go back to that version *shivers*. I ask that if you are interested in doing this, please ask permission from the mod maker, blakmajik. I hope someone can do this and keep it updated. Here is the link to the original post: http://www.minecraftforum.net/topic/488434-125-zeppelin-031-wip/
Well... As far as I know, the guy will never update. But there is another type of this zeppelin mod. I personally don't think it's as great, but its all i know there is. http://forum.minecraftuser.jp/viewtopic.php?f=13&t=10418
Just to warn you though, this sight is in Japanese. I had my web browser decoded but I don't know if any one else can.
I have looked into archamides ships in the past and while I can see why you would think its the same, it really isn't. The best part of the zeppelin mod, to me, was the ability to walk freely in your ship as it flew, allowing you to look around and see all sides, making it great for elevators and brilliant for getting a look at your surrounds or, looking for a place to live.
Sadly, the hunt for the new Zeppelin mod continues, for me atleast, to 1.2.5 I go until such a time.
Yes blakmajik is active. He was just doing stuff today at 5:30
He is also working on updating the mod. He has added SMP support and the only problem with SMP is that when you update redstone, other players don't get the update.
This is what blakmajik said about the newer versions:
-Controlling the ship with commands
-Moving upwards without falling through
-Moving upwards without losing camera control
-Remote controls -Breaking blocks or activating redstone does not update other multiplayers
-Still no proper support for forge textures
-Probably other things
There don't seem to be any downloads for the new versions though.
Um, How do you know that futurecraft "will probably not be released" Um HAV YOU EVEN CHECKED THE DEV LOGS?! there still working on it! Last one was at 8:15 AM TODAY yeah there still working on it WE STILL HAVE HOPE!*Have
