So I had an idea when I saw the various vehicle mods people have made, and a thought came to mind: would it be possible to make functional landers from the new Ascension map on Black Ops Zombies?
Setting up destinations would be like setting waypoints in spc, and when you get on it to ride it you'd right click the control panel and type the destination, and it would fly there, and you could also call it to the station you're at.
I came up with some rough crafting recipes-
for the station block, black and yellow wool,
and you get enough station blocks to make 2 stations,
For the station control, use glass, redstone dust, and iron ingots, =Redstone dust
and you get a station control,
To build a station, you first clear a 1 block deep hole like below, ( =cleared blocks)
   
   
line it with station blocks (space inside station blocks is air) and put a station control on top of any block adjacent to a station block,
For the lander floor blocks (which would be half blocks like stone slabs), use glass and iron ingots
and you get a floor piece (or probably enough for one lander),
To make the lander control panel, iron ingots and redstone dust ( = redstone dust)
and you get a lander control,
Finally, to make the lander itself, you combine the floor pieces and the control panel,
Then you take the lander in your inventory, and place it like a normal block in the center of the station, and it's done:
The outermost floor pieces of the lander would have fences on them that would appear when you take off and disappear when you land.
To call the lander to the station you're at, you'd right click the station control.
That way you could travel long distances without losing your bearings or having to use waypoints or having to lay down minecart track block by block by block by block...by block... plus it'd be cooler. :biggrin.gif:
So. would something like this be possible? If so I'd be willing to learn how to make mods and help out.
