Summary

Adds player-controllable hot air balloons to the game

Version

2.06

Compatible with

1.2.5

Modloader

Yes

This mod adds Hot Air Balloons, a compact, easy to handle air-transportation-vehicle, that will take you to your destinations in style, and will help you discover your world in no-time. Each balloon requires fuel in the form of coal and water, which is taken from the player's inventory while they are flying.

There are two balloon types, a non-propelled, and a propelled one: the non-propelled balloon drifts along with the north-pointing wind. It uses less fuel, but it can only travel to the north. The propelled balloon requires a lot more coal and water than the non-propelled balloon, making it more expensive to use.

Using the Balloons[edit]

Controls[edit]

How to use the basic balloon[edit]

  • Right-click to get inside.
  • The balloon will fly north. (The direction of the "wind".)
  • Use SPACE to ascend and C to descend.
  • LEFT CTRL to shoot an arrow (if available)
  • Right-click to jump outside.


How to use the propelled balloon[edit]

  • Right-click to get inside.
  • The balloon's direction can be controlled using standard WASD. (Like a boat)
  • Use SPACE to ascend and C to descend.
  • Use LEFT CTRL to shoot an arrow (if available)
  • Right-click to jump outside.

Other info[edit]

  • If there is no driver, the balloon will slowly descend.
  • The balloon's average speed, (going east or west) is about 2/3 of its top speed.
  • While going north (with the wind), it's at its top speed.
  • While going south (against the wind), the top speed is 1/2 of its actual top speed.
  • The balloon is 4 blocks high.


Fuel[edit]

Non-propelled balloon[edit]

Once stepping inside, the balloon checks the player's inventory. It gives itself 1 coal and 1 bucket of water if it can be found. (You keep the bucket.) Every 8 minutes, it needs another bucket of water. Another check is made. Every 40 seconds, it needs another lump of coal. Another check is made. If the balloon runs out of either of these, it will slowly descend.


Propelled balloon[edit]

Once stepping inside, the balloon checks the player's inventory. It gives itself 1 coal and 1 bucket of water if it can be found. (You keep the bucket.) Every 2 minutes, it needs another bucket of water. Another check is made. Every 15 seconds, it needs another lump of coal. Another check is made. If the balloon runs out of either of these, it will slowly descend.

Crashing the balloon[edit]

The balloon will break into half its basic components if it hits anything with a decent speed (4 cobblestone, 10 leather, 3 planks, 3 string)

Other info[edit]

If there is no driver, the balloon will slowly descend. The balloon's average speed, (going east or west) is about 2/3 of its top speed. While going north (with the wind), it's at its top speed. While going south (against the wind), the top speed is 1/2 of its actual top speed. The balloon is 4 blocks high.
