    BoatMod - Add large moving objects
    Version: v12

    This plugin adds the ability to make large structures like boats, submarines, and blimps move, along with the players aboard them. It currently allows the usage of the blocks listed below in boats and allows one boat per person on the server. Configuration can be done by editing the default.cfg file or creating a new .cfg file.

    In order to use this mod, you must first captain a boat by left clicking on a block in the boat while holding a boat item. You should click the block that you want the boat to rotate around while facing the front of the boat. You can rotate by facing the way you want the boat to rotate and left clicking while holding a map. You can then move by right clicking in the direction you want to move while holding a map. You can hold down right click to continuously move. You may change your speed (blocks/click) by using the /boatspeed command with a number argument (for example /boatspeed 1 would move the boat one block per right click). If you run into any other blocks, the boat will not move. If the boat is damaged, the blocks will remain damaged.

    • Lets players create large moveable structures like boats.
    • Moves and rotates these structures.
    • Moves any entities that are standing on the structures.
    • Checks for collisions and damage.
    Permissions Support (open)
    In order to implement permissions, look at the default.cfg in the plugins/BoatMod directory. Next to each value in the [CONFIG] section, you can add the permissions node that you want to use followed by a colon. The default permissions nodes are boatmod.admin and none (which is used by non-permissions players). For example, you could make the MaxSize for default players 0, which would make them unable to make boats. You could also add a node (perhaps boatmod.player for a player that can use boatmod) and then set the maximum values for that node. These permissions may also be applied to each script with the syntax node:name of script.
    Boatable Blocks (open)
    Boatable Blocks:
    These blocks may be changed by adding or removing materials to a config file beneath a [MATERIAL] tag, materials are defined in

    Scripting (open)
    The script engine exposes the boat that was setup with the script as an object named boat. Several public functions may be accessed that allow the control of this boat. A demo script named autoship moves a ship in a straight direction whenever the sun rises or sets.
    • getCaptain() returns the Player object that created the boat.
    • Message(String message) sends the captain a message.
    • setSpeed(int movespeed) sets the speed of movement in blocks per move.
    • Move(Vector direction) moves the boat in the direction specified by the vector. It returns true if there was not a collision.

    Even without stuff inside, crashing. I don't know what changed, but it's being quite crashy. It also seems to be happening only with chests.

    Oh, and doors are still duping, but signs aren't.

    hey my one cant even find the boat. i put the .jar in the plugin folder and i put the boatmod folder in the plugin folder please say whats wrong

    The errors people are having is most likely due to incompatibilities with craftbukkit 1.1-R5. Please use craftbukkit 1.1-R3 or 1.1-R4 for now.

    I'm using 1.1-R4. It just seems to be an error with chests.

    Can you give me a plugin list of the plugins you are using? Can you describe the crash you are experiencing?

    I found a way to have safety without having to do a large amount of calculations. It should show up in the next version

    I am sorry but what is the power generator? Can we change it?

  10. Offline


    A burning furnace is currently the power generator. You can change NeedsPower to false to disable this, the generator cannot currently be changed.

    What version of craftbukkit are you using and which version of BoatMod did you download?

    In case you suspect Lockette, the chest wasn't locked. The crash is like the whole screen becoming 1 solid color, or the default dirt background.

    Like a few other posters i am also having problems while trying to move a boat with chests in it. While the boat actually moves all the clients within the chunk the boat is in crash if there is a chest in it, items or not.

    Server keeps on going, no errors.

    Items in my Plugin folder: Boatmod, ChatManager, ChestShop, CommandBin, CommandShops, Craftscripts, EXPMiner, Iconomy, Lumberjack, McMMO, ModifyWorld, PermissionsEx, Plugin Metrics, Spout, Worldedit, and WorldGuard

    We initially figured out that chests crash the clients a few days ago, but we thought the new update might fix the problem. Sadly that was not the case. :/

    Thanks for the info. It is probably an incompatibility with one of the other plugins. I imagine it would not be good for chests to just disappear if another plugin was using them. I will attempt to identify which plugin might do this. For now, I would recommend removing CHEST from the config file's material section. You could also downgrade by getting an older version from here

    If you ever need to test a build of this plugin, just jump on my server Jackpot.

    Chests moving is also known to be a problem in MoveCraft.

    I prefer this plugin, but chests not working seems to be a slight purpose defeater, as it ruined my mobile warehouses (barges).

    I don't understand... I created a boat and I left-click with a little boat in my hand and it don't say : "You now have a control of <numberofblock> blocks".

    I think I found the source of most of these dupe issues, I will update soon.

    So, whenever me and my friend try to move our 2207 block boat it crashes our games, not the server, just everyone on the server. I know this is not connection issues because it happens with me alone and i host right from my own home. So if you have any tips on how to fix this or anything you think we can do, it would be a big help. Thanks!

    What block types are on your boat?

    So, this is like the zeplin mod but for a server... SICK! This is so beast!

    I cant seem to figure out the autopilot. /boatauto start doesnt seem to do anything. What else do i do?
  25. Offline


    I may have broken boatauto. When you create the boat, make sure that your view is as parallel with the ground as possible. Then use the /boatauto start command. Let me know if you see any console output from BoatMod when you run that command.

    Im not getting anything in the console, must be broken.

    Check to see if a chest is on your boat, usually causes all the clients on my server to crash when a boat has a chest in it.

    Guys, the chest bug is a minecraft client bug. The server can properly move the chests but when it updates the client with the new data, it causes a crash. I cannot fix this bug as I do not have access to the client source. I recommend not using chests with 1.1

    Change the configuration option named Vertical in the plugins/BoatMod/default.cfg file from TRUE to FALSE
