Hang Glider Mod
Designed for the new modpack, Fellowship Medieval Modpack, and influenced by the feature in cube world, I spent a couple days designing a hang glider mod for Minecraft. The mod is fairly straight forward and simple, however, i spent a long time playing with the mechanics to make it feel like you are hang gliding, momentum preservation and all(wide turning, youll fell like you are sliding if you try to turn too quickly), also spent some time working on an algorithm to give a realistic look to the glider as you are controlling it. Turning rolls the hang glider, too much turn with not enough speed will flip it, resulting in some cool tricks once you get the hang of it. There is currently no pitch control(tilting up and down) but i think this would make the controls too complicated and not as comfortable as they are now.
This mod is currently for 1.5.2 but i do plan on updating to 1.6.2 if people want it. It was designed for a modpack in 1.5.2 so that is the version it is currently built on. If you have any issues, be sure to update forge to a newer 1.5.2 version before posting a crash report.
