ShipsNoCollideLinkShipsNoCollide is a addon to Ships 5. What it does is forces ships to check that the new location will not attach onto another block. IE. If there is another ship coming at you. Without no collide it may end up just infront of your ship. This then attaches the two ships together. No collide stops that from happening. Its not a big plugin at all. I think its less then 10 lines (after grabbing the event). But its a seprate plugin because it may slow down ships by a nano second.MoseMister
ShipsDamageLinkShips Damage adds a configurable weight-damage mechanic to each and every ship, with minimal performance impact/overhead. Great for use together with the ShipsNoColide Plugin!nullschritt
StargateLinkStargate next gen brings Ships support to the old Stargate as well as bring the plugin to minecraft 1.9nullschritt

What is Ships?

Ships is associated as one of 'MoveCrafts' rivals, however we can guarantee you that Ships is moving away from this idea, by adding features that you would probably not see in MoveCraft but are useful for the servers this plugin is designed for.

Ships is a plugin that allows you to create medium sized vessels in water, ontop of water and in air. Ships is simple to use because it only uses signs to control the vessels. No annoying commands to learn, or 'wands' needed, it's just plain simple signs.

As time moves forward this plugin improves. This is MoseMister's first plugin and he is still learning from the endless world of craftbukkit. This being said, some features of this plugin maybe 'glitchy' so you have been warned. Qx2 does not work on this plugin any more so all the updates and taking care of the top priority 'users' lies on MoseMister alone, so all help is appreciated.


ShipShips move onto of water
AirshipAirships are one of the hardest to work because they are so demanding. Enjoy
Marsshipship from the movie John Carter. In action how like an airship but does not require fuel or wool. Its disadvantage is that it can fly only during the day
PlaneFaster then all the other vessels, however, fuel is eaten
SubmarineMoves underWater
Solarshipfuels up during day, uses its own fuel at night
Hybridshipa mix between the Marship and Airship


Ships Licence sign* [Ships]
* <vesseltype>

This sign is the licence sign, right click it to gain info about the vessel.
Move sign* [Move]

This sign will allow you to move your vessel. The vessel will move in the opposite direction to the way it is facing
EOT sign* [Wheel]

This sign will allow you to rotate your vessel. Left click to rotate to the left. Right click to rotate to the right.
Altitude sign* [Altitude]

This sign allow your vessel to move up and down. Left click to move down (decrease your altitude). Right click to move up (increase your altitude)
EOT sign* [EOT]

This sign will force the vessel to move in the same direction until it hits a wall. If EOT is disabled in the config this sign will not take effect and will not be able to be created through Ships

The signs will only be activated if standing. They will not activate when sneaking.

Isn't this the really buggy plugin?

Ships has been known for its bugs however Ships 5 and above cleared out almost all of the bugs from Ships 4 and lower.

Struggling with the config?

Here is a more in-depth version to all config files within Ships

Are you a developer?

The image at the top labeled 'source code' leads to the github Ships 5+ page. But if you want to just start developing for Ships you can go to the Ships 5+ api page located here. This will tell you some things that you can do with the api.

The api is always developing, fixing bugs and issues and adding new parts to the API to make your programming life as simple as possible. If you wish to add something to the api. Don't be scared, just send a request on GitHub (preferred) or here (not preferred) and it will be taken care of.

    @MoseMister: Go The error is a pretty long one and it doesn't let me copy/paste, is there a way I can send you a screenshot?

    @Profetitus: Go

    yep, sure is.

    If you go into VesselTypes folder found in the configuration folder for Ships, you then open Airship.yml (im assuming you mean airship) then where it says percent, just change that to what you wish and every airship created from that point will have the percent required of what ever you set it to be.

    If you want your previously created Ships to have diffrent data, just go into the VesselType folder and manually change all the files there ... or delete all of the files and tell your users to recreate there ships (i will be working on a command that changes all the data, new and old, however it is not added yet)

    @MoseMister: Go

    Hey thanks for the quick reply it worked I was also wondering is it possible to reduce the use of wool to 20% instead of 60?

    @Profetitus: Go

    yep, there is a option in the configuration file for ships called FireProtect 2.0, turn it on and you should be fine. If that doesnt work then cover your fire with glass

    @filip117: Go

    hey, the "Could not pass event PlayerInteractEvent to Ships v5.0.1.7" is a ships error. Could you send me the whole error (the whole error should be indented), that would help out a lot. I have just got back from my business trip, so after i get my computer working again, ill be creating a Ships to support 1.9.2. Thanks for your support and sorry i couldnt make one faster (normally make a new ships for each MC version within 1-8 hours after the release of the Bukkit/Spigot - but something got in the way)

    @MoseMister: Go

    Doesn't look like ships is crashing, but the server cmd says "ERROR]: Could not pass event PlayerInteractEvent to Ships v5.0.1.7" This is after I changed my version to 1.9 in the config, though in-game, nothing changed. Also something I forgot to mention, when I try the /Ships command, it tells me "An internal error occurred while attempting to preform this command" This one happens on both versions as well. In any case, I'll leave you alone unless you have further instructions for me. :P Thanks for all the help so far!

    @filip117: Go

    Currently there are no builds for the latest minecraft (mc 1.9.2) and im on a business trip (get back much later today) however it should be able to work. There are also two versions of Ships The mc 1.9 version and the mc 1.8-1.8.9 version.

    What i did see from your configuration file is that Ships thinks you are running on mc 1.8.8. This is the default option, can you please make sure Ships is not crashing when you are booting up your server.

    But like i said, i can not touch Ships while i am on this business trip, i dont know what time ill get back. So please wait while i take a look at the new mc
