We can use boats in sea, minecarts on land, and how about a glider in mid-air? It will glide you in mid-air and your slowly fall down. I heard of jetpack and plane ideas which I don't like( :\ ), so lets make it a simple glider. Also if possible wind can push your direction. Also you can't fly it if it's snowing or raining. To craft a glider it should be like this:
:Glass:   :White:  :Glass:
:White:   :|:      :White:
:feather: :|:      :feather:  ( :Glass: = air)
A way I think to use it is after crafting it jump from  a high place and right-click. If you right-click again you will fall down. Another thing is if you landed on water your glider will be broken which giving you one wool and one stick back.

Good idea, but there could be many issues to do with physics. Depends on how slow you fly and how this "glider turns" there could be several issuse's from renderings to blocks being loaded.

this is way better than people coming up with silly ideas about havin planes next thing they will want is a plane that shoots bullets <_<. but then again i could be wrong on the bugs and this glider idea could fit perfectly into the game who knows.

Guess its up to some one to test this out.

also, try this; hand gliders have frame work on the back of the wings im pretty sure;

I've thought of this before. But the crafting should be different, maybe like:

:White:  :White:  :White:
:feather:  ::  :feather:
:|:  :wood:  :|:

Feathers being string.

+1 support.

Come on man, no dragons? You serious now? Dragons are a really good idea for Minecraft.

By the way I like this idea to, Notch should think about this or at least or new way of transportation.

Well as far as the Hitchhikers guide to the Galaxy fans who run this website are concerned, you are worth supporting, seeing as you're the meaning of life, the universe, and everything in it! :D

1. This is realistic for someone in the middle of nowhere with limited resources

2. It would be fun to glide from cliffs

3. Preventing fall damage, anyone?

Lol i am serious, im happy for fighting them. Flying them is kinda lame rather have a hander glider than a big old dragon. I like the taming idea in minecraft with Wolfs and they attack what you attack.

With Dragons it should just be left to a "monster" that you kill and get a drop for instance a pig sadal, and there would be a small number of dragons just like blobs.

i would say when so say jumping from a "cliff" based on the speed and the downfall speed is should be at a rate where you are immune to damage from falling when you land on grass, sand or even water. But when landing on rock, ice or trees you can recieve damage from the max a heart??.

also head on crash with walls just destroys the glider with parts of the build being dropped just like boats.

Please check my signature for the Vehiclecraft thread. It includes gliders, ornithopters, and a few other vehicles as well as ways to combat them, all suggested in a balanced way.

Some features should be taking out of mod-land and put into normal Minecraft, such as pistons.


What makes you think it's a mod?


It's a suggestion that I came up with.
