0.31 released! Leaves work again!

Description

Zeppelin is a mod you can use to fly ships around in the Minecraft world. It is not limited to the world grid, but can move freely in space.

An awesome runthrough by GNS.

Note: This mod is BETA - There is a good chance it will crash, but is stable enough for people to use now. If you get a crash dump, please post what you were doing, and the crash log in this thread.


Usage

The Controller
Create a craft controller block
Posted Image

Airship moves forward/back, up/down, and can turn. Ship moves forward/back and can turn. Elevator only goes up/down. Turntable only rotates.

Place this block on your 'ship'. The direction you place the block will determine the forward direction for the craft. Right click the block. The craft will be determined. If it is too large, you will get an error. Default max size is 1024 blocks.

Blocks that will not be accepted as part of a ship by default (you can change this - see configuration section):
  • Air
  • Stone
  • Grass
  • Dirt
  • Bedrock
  • Water
  • Lava
  • Sand
  • Gravel
  • Snow
  • Ice
  • A few more random things like flowers and mushrooms
All other blocks are allowed, but they may not all work!

The following blocks will be included, but will not chain to other blocks when detecting a ship (you can change this - see configuration section):
  • Beds
  • Ladders
  • Plants
  • Minecart Rails
  • Signs
  • Redstone Wire
  • Torches
  • Buttons/Levels/Plates
  • Redstone Repeaters
  • Trapdoors
  • Melon/Pumpkin Stem
  • Lilly Pad
  • Nether Wart
  • *See config for exact list
Controls for the ship are on the number pad by default.
8 Increase speed
2 Decrease speed
4 Rotate left
6 Rotate right
5 Stop
+ Ascend
- Descend
* Align to grid

You can configure the controls in your options.txt, see below.

You can control the ship as long as you are standing on it (or near it in some cases).

If you jump off while the ship is in motion, wave goodbye.

Right clicking the controller block will cause the ship to stop, realign to the world grid, and rejoin the world.

The Compass
Create a compass block!
Posted Image

This compass is placed like a regular block, and will point Notch-North (towards the rising sun, at +X)

The Instrumentation
Any sign on an active craft will have the following string transforms done to each line.

#X# - The current X position of the controller.
#Y# - The current Y position of the controller.
#Z# - The current Z position of the controller.

#S# - The forward speed of the craft.
#A# - The current ascent rate of the craft.
#R# - The current rotation rate of the craft.
#H# - The current heading of the craft.
#C# - The ID of the craft.

Additional ideas for this are welcome!


The Remote
A remote control for the Zeppelin controllers!
Posted Image
  • Link a remote to a controller via right-clicking it when active.
  • Right clicking anything else will tell you the craft it is linked to (message shown in screenshot above).
  • If you have a remote in your hand, you can control the remote ship with the normal controls.
  • If you are on a ship, and have a remote in your hand, you control the remote ship, and not then ship you are on, so you can make hanger doors and stuff without giving commands to both ships at once.
  • #C# sign will tell you the ID of the ship.
  • Remote linkages persist across saves.
  • You can have multiple remotes for one craft.
You can use it to create giant hanger doors!

Installation
This mod requires ModLoader!
  • Install ModLoader
  • Place Zeppelin-client-&--#60;version&--#62;.zip in the /mods/ folder.
  • (0.14+ only) Extract the specified class from mod_Zeppelin-client.zip, and put it in your minecraft.jar
  • Done!

Compatibility
Known Working
Known Issues
  • CCTV (craft controls will fail)
Configuration
The configuration file can be found in your minecraft folder under /config/mod_Zeppelin.cfg. If it does not exist it will be created at runtime. These configuration settings are currently implemented, along with their defaults:
Spoiler:

Meta Rotation
The block rotation database is located in /config/MetaRotation/Vanilla.meta. If you would like to add rotation support for another block (ie buildcraft) you can create another .meta file in this directory, and it will be automatically included. If you create entries, please post them and I will add them to the section here so we can get a nice database going.

The following spoiler contains any MetaRotation data that people create for other mods. If you change the block ID, you will have to update it. But the : meta numbers will be the same. Take the chunks you want, and put them in a .meta file in your /config/MetaRotation/ directory.
Spoiler:

Release Notes
1.2.5.0.31
  • Fixed crash with leaves and a few other blocks from 0.30

Spoiler:

Known Issues
  • You can walk through walls sometimes
  • Pistons only work if they are higher than the controller.
  • Torches emit no light, neither does glowstone.
  • Players can sometimes fail to collide horizontally with blocks when the ship is rotating
  • Bounding boxes are grid aligned even during rotation.
  • Water is crazy. Stay away from it. Submarines are not possible yet.
  • Pressure plates do not power redstone.
  • Controller disappears randomly. Placing a block causes it to reappear.
  • Ship can vanish and disappear at a previous location.
  • Signs not rotating properly.
  • Issues with redstone signal propagation through repeaters
  • Creative doesn't work properly.
Future Plans
  • SMP!!!!!
  • Ships consume fuel (configurable)
  • Crashing the ship at high speed will cause blocks to break
  • Larger ships are slower to accelerate and turn (configurable?)
  • More complicated (and expensive) recipe
  • Momentum
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What is the block ID for the controller?
A: Block ID 195 by default in version 0.5 and higher (165 for 0.1 through 0.4).

Q: How can I change the controls?
A: Either use the in game control editor, or edit the options.txt in your .minecraft folder (Start-&--#62;Run-&--#62;%appdata%/.minecraft/). The numbers for the keys are scancodes, which you can find here. Minecraft's config.txt requires DECIMAL scancodes. NOT hex. Picture!

Here's a different control scheme based on arrow keys, pgup/pgdn, home/end.
Spoiler:

Q: But the "Done" button is in the way! How can I change the controls in game?
A: Download the guiControls fix in the Downloads section. Put the file in your minecraft.jar, and then the "Done" button will move when you resize the window.

Q: I can only move up and down! Help!
A: Make sure your NUMLOCK is on! If you don't know what that is, google it!

Q: I get a black screen and no crash dump, what can I do?
A: If you get the black screen with no error, create the following batch file file (or put it in your start-&--#62;run)

java -Xms512m -Xmx1024m -cp "%APPDATA%\.minecraft\bin\minecraft.jar;%APPDATA%\.minecraft\bin\jinput.jar;%APPDATA%\.minecraft\bin\lwjgl.jar;%APPDATA%\.minecraft\bin\lwjgl_util.jar" -Djava.library.path="%APPDATA%\.minecraft\bin\natives" net.minecraft.client.Minecraft

You should now get a command prompt with all the java messages, and minecraft should start. When it crashes, this window should have your stacktrace.

Q: Why can't I use block X?
A: You can try! See the configuration section above.

Q: Aether/modblah doesn't work!
A: Check for a block ID conflict in your modloader.txt

Q: I have an error report that says "avax.imageio.IIOException: Error reading PNG metadata"
A: Make sure you have the latest version of java. If that still doesn't fix it, post the error report.

Q: Can you make a Bukkit / Spout version?
A: No. SMP will be ModloaderMP.

Q: Can you make this compatible with MineCraft Forge?
A: It is compatible! Zeppelin is not dependent on forge, but will work alongside any forge mod you have.

Q: Where is OPTIONS.txt?
A: In the %APPDATA%/.minecraft/ folder on windows, or in &--#60;user&--#62;/Library/Application Support/minecraft for OS X.

Q: I can't find the controller in creative mode!
A: Creative is not supported yet. You can probably craft the controller like normal, but I don't know if it will fly.

Q: My question wasn't in here!
A: Make a post! Start it with 'I read the OP but...' and please state what version of the mod you are having issues with. If you ask a question that was answered in this post, I will not answer you!

Let cobblestone be recognized.
Unless it checks for cobblestone in the depths of the world.

Also, Changes to the control scheme, as not everyone has a number pad.



One of the best developed mods being made at the moment.
Deal w/ it.

Ok I will add cobblestone.

The numberpad are just the default controls, you can change them in game or through your options.txt

Epic. It would be so awesome if you made things keep their metadata. That's what is causing the crash of ladders,(I think) chests to lose their inventories, and furnaces to have everything inside vanish.

Also, this appears to require ModloaderMP. It crashed without, and I recognized BaseModMP or whatever in the crashlog, and installed ModloaderMP, and then it didn't crash.

i had the craziest idea ever for this mod...the craziest fucking idea. So, i have this flying fortress thingy and using pistons it lowers itself down and grabs onto trees and retracts them and brings them up to my flying fortress so i can harvest them there. In that way i can potentially setup multiple of these large "harvesting tubes" and can harvest wood alot faster and eventually have a flying fortress that blocks out the sun.
