Ever wanted to discover the world, but found walking too boring? Well then, I now proudly present:

HOT AIR BALLOONS! v2.1

Posted Image
1.2.5!!!


Hot Air Balloons isn't like any airship mod already around. No, Hot Air Balloons is a compact, easy to handle air-transportation-vehicle, that will take you to your destinations in style, and will help you discover your world in no-time.

Note to everyone: I've had to recreate the topic due to a forum bug. This is the official topic. Posted Image

This mod is a completion of a suggestion on the Minecraft Forum. link

Fly with your friends!


About:
There are two balloons, a non-propelled, and a propelled one.
The non-propelled balloon drifts along with the north-pointing wind. It should use less fuel, but it can, as said before, only travel to the north.
The propelled balloon, along with the need of 2 iron ingots, it also requires a lot more coal and water than the non-propelled balloon, making it more expensive to use.

More info in the Manual below!

Release notes:
- SMP support

Feature List:
Posted Image A Flying Balloon
Posted Image Items: Leather Sheet, Balloon, Rope, Hot Air Balloon
Posted Image Wind acceleration
Posted Image Fuel (Bucket of Water and some Coal)
Posted Image Configuration file for custom keymapping (Client only)
Posted Image SMP support, fly with your friends!
Posted Image Handy dandy GUI for managing fuel and possibly other stuff
Posted Image Applying further suggestions

Posted Image = Implemented
Posted Image = To be implemented in the very near future

Check out this cool instructional video, made by ThePCGamingGuy:


H.A.B. manual

Crafting Recipes:

How to make the basic balloon:
You need:
  • 20 leather
  • 6 string
  • 5 wood
  • 8 cobblestone
First, we need to make the balloon itself out of leather sheets, like this:
Posted Image
NOTE: This is NOT a new block; It's a storage unit.

Reverse-crafting is possible, but you only get 3 back.
Posted Image

Arrange your sheets in a "plus" shape to get a leather balloon.
Posted Image
NOTE: This is NOT a new block either.

Before we go any further, we need rope. String just isn't strong enough.
Posted Image

Now, arrange the boat, furnace, rope, and balloon like this:
Posted Image
NOTE: Yes, that is a BOAT.
Boat: Used as the basket.
Rope: Holds it together.
Furnace: Makes hot air.
Balloon: Provides lift.

How to make the propelled balloon:
You need:
  • 20 leather
  • 6 string
  • 5 wood
  • 8 cobblestone
  • 2 iron
Using the steps for the basic balloon, you should now have a balloon.
Next, using a bit of iron, you can add a propeller.
Posted Image

Horray! now you can control direction!

How to use the basic balloon
  • Right-click to get inside.
  • The balloon will fly north. (The direction of the "wind".)
  • Use SPACE to ascend and C to descend.
  • Right-click to jump outside.
How to use the propelled balloon
  • Right-click to get inside.
  • The balloon's direction can be controlled using standard WASD. (Like a boat)
  • Use SPACE to ascend and C to descend.
  • Right-click to jump outside.
Fuel
Non-propelled balloon:
  • Once stepping inside, the balloon checks the player's inventory.
  • It gives itself 1 coal and 1 bucket of water if it can be found. (You keep the bucket.)
  • Every 8 minutes, it needs another bucket of water. Another check is made.
  • Every 40 seconds, it needs another lump of coal. Another check is made.
  • If the balloon runs out of either of these, it will slowly descend.
Propelled balloon:
  • Once stepping inside, the balloon checks the player's inventory.
  • It gives itself 1 coal and 1 bucket of water if it can be found. (You keep the bucket.)
  • Every 2 minutes, it needs another bucket of water. Another check is made.
  • Every 15 seconds, it needs another lump of coal. Another check is made.
  • If the balloon runs out of either of these, it will slowly descend.
Crashing the balloon
The balloon will break into half its basic components if it hits anything with a decent speed (4 cobblestone, 10 leather, 3 planks, 3 string)

Other info
  • If there is no driver, the balloon will slowly descend.
  • The balloon's average speed, (going east or west) is about 2/3 of its top speed.
  • While going north (with the wind), it's at its top speed.
  • While going south (against the wind), the top speed is 1/2 of its actual top speed.
  • The balloon is 4 blocks high.
  • The Properties file is found in the .minecraft/ directory

You can still use 2.06, which uses ModloaderMP. :)
Download it here:
client
server

Or be sure to use the mod as soon as you do make the switch! ;)

Delete your properties file, it has been causing problems to other people as well when switching to forge. :)

For some reason, when I click on the link to follow to your download page Chrome warned me that some page Entitled, "Harleyquin". com or something like that was attempting to give me some suspicious stuff. I think it was just a problem on my side, likely some malware, but I figured I would let you know just in case I am wrong. Thanks!


Also this mod kicks ass! Posted Image

Great work on the transition to Forge! While I will miss having the option of installing this mod the next time I play through the BTW mod, I'll certainly enjoy being able to install it in my Industrial world.

Same here. I do not and will not use Forge, and so I will no longer be using this mod. I did enjoy it in the past though, so thanks for your hard work. Good Luck!

Good luck with your unmodded Minecraft.  Most mods are switching to Forge since MLMP continues to use the rogue Packet 230.  May I ask what you have against Forge?

We have this installed on our bukkit server, and it works great! First the balloons were invisible but I somehow fixed it and now we have a lot of fun with it!
Do you know if there is any texturepack supporting this (like Faithful or Dokucraft)?

Hey, if the balloons are invisible to anyone else playing on a bukkit server with this mod.
Update forge to 3.1.3.105 or higher.

Why are you against forge? i dont undestand.... almost all good mods need forge

PROBLEM-BUG:
since older versions up today, everytime I right click to jump out a ballon in SMP, I get stucked in the air and the server kick me because "its is not allowed to fly". If I relogin, it start to work fine. Is this known?
