Flying Fortress


Discuss the Mod in #flyingfort on esper.net, use Mibbitif you don't have a client.

A Zombie ventures out of his cave in the night, looking for Steve to eat. Then a primed tnt drops in front of him. "Oh shiiit" he thinks as it explodes. His buddies come outside and look up, to see a mega-huge floating castle in the sky. "That was definitely not here last night. Wait a sec, its moving. Hey! There's Steve! He is priming that TNT cannon. Oh Crap." BOOM!

Anyway, yeah. I gather that if you read the short story, you get what this mod is about. Its about a block, which raises other blocks up, to give a flying fortress effect. It is pretty slow, blame Notch for that, but it is good.
Blocks
Control Block: This is what controls the entire ship. Using the right tools, you can send the entire mass of blocks up, down, left, right, forward, and backward. As long as a power block is in the radius. It can raise blocks that are within a 5 block radius each side, for a total of a 10x10x10 control. If it finds a Repeater block, it will raise the area around that up, for the same radius. Build accordingly, because it has the possibility of raising the same block 2 times.
Repeater Block: By itself, it does nothing. But if it is powered and a control block is within reach, it acts a focal point for the levitational energies and raises the blocks around it. It is too weak, however, to send enough energy to raise other repeaters.
Powered Block: If fed with coal, it will power blocks that require its energy that it is within the radius of, aka within the 10x10x10 cube of the control / repeaters.
[b] More blocks coming soon, including weapon blocks.

I would appreciate textures, because i have none right now. Ideas, just post here, I will see what I can do.

To those who read my sig before I changed it on 4/25/11, this is the big project I was talking about!

Srslythough
You don't sound at ALL like a noob who would suggest this or anything like that and go like AND IT SHOULD BE CRAFTED WITH DIRT AND GIVE U FR33 DI4MINDZ
You sound like someone who can create a balanced mod and make it WORK

You should make a block limit though, if you could lift up an entire planet then it would just be overpowered.

What would the hight limit of such a structure be? I think it should be around 20-30 blocks or so. I would want room to make a decent sized fortress, but having a 60 block high flying skyscraper might be a bit ridiculous! XD

Creepers have one intention. Almost like it was programmed into its brain. although it doesn't have one because it's head is filled with TNT. Why don't sulphur drops blow up when a creeper drops them?

ZOMG CREEPER IN DAT HOUSE WDF

You would need quite a few control blocks, and i plan on a lot of items to get those. It won't be easy. So your limited by the amount of blocks you can craft. Not to mention that all the weapon blocks will be useless at that range, and so will most of the tnt cannons / mod weapons that you put on there. I don't want to impose a y limit, because that could cause problems in mountainous regions. Though i guess a few shots with the cannon and your path is cleared. BTW, i am probably making a SMP version too. Once I release this, however.

Yes, though its a bit buggy with water. Just don't rise up, or you will grief your world. The blocks will work like normal, so the sand / gravel will fall, the water / lava will flow, the plants will grow, etc.

http://t3.gstatic.co...B-oTbjnP  Maybe something like this for the control block?  I'm thinking of a design similar to this to make it look like energy is pulsing through it.  Maybe make it glow like redstone.  Well, is it a possibility?  Just my suggestion.

Maybe if you made it glow like energy was pulsing through it.  It could give it an eerie, mysterious appearance.  I just thought it looked cool.
