To Spigot 1.8 users:

To run this plugin with Spigot 1.8 you will need the latest version of uPlanes and the latest version of Spigotmc's updated Protocollib. The 1.8 compatible ProtocolLib can be downloaded from http://ci.shadowvolt.com/job/ProtocolLib/ (courtesy of http://spigotmc.org )!



uPlanes is a plugin which adds smooth, fly-able planes to Minecraft. It works by taking control of Minecart entities and letting you control them!

Flying a Plane



Planes are crafted using the following recipe:
Plane Recipe
However you can also make Hover Planes which are crafted with this recipe:
Hover Plane Recipe


When made Planes will have randomly generated Stats such as Health, Speed and their Name. These can be edited later on using the upgrade tool.
To upgrade a plane, place the plane in the left slot of an anvil, any upgrades you want in the middle slot and use the bar at the top to rename it.
Upgrades are as following:

Iron BlocksHealth+9
Iron IngotsHealth+1
Redstone BlocksSpeed+9
Redstone DustSpeed+1


Now you are able to fly your plane! Simply place it down with a right click and hop in!

The controls

The controls for the Plane are simple and effective.

MouseDictate the direction to fly the plane
'W'/ForwardsMove the plane forwards
'A'/LeftMove the plane upwards
'S'/RightMove the plane downwards
'D'/BackwardsMove the plane backwards
'Left Shift'Dismount

Safe Exit

It is well known in Minecraft that Minecarts can be used to 'glitch' through walls. However on some server, you may not want this. So, if you turn on safeExit in the config, the plugin will ensure that post-exit you are teleported to the exact location that the plane was at and also block you exiting whilst the car is inside a block. By default safeExit is turned off.


Shops allow you to buy planes for the amount specified in the config. To use Shops you need 'Vault' installed (For the economy support). Planes bought in the shop have random stats and sometimes are great, other times are less so.
To make a shop, write the following on a sign:
Then place a chest above, when the chest is opened. The shop GUI will open.

The official server to see the plugin in action on is the GameBlade minecraft network. You can buy planes both on Survival and MineTheftAuto, they are also free on Plots.

uPlanes has an extensive API to allow other plugins to interact with and modify planes.
The Javadoc for the API can be found on Jenkins, here.

For use with Maven; the uPlanes repo url is: 'http://repository-storm345dev.forge.cloudbees.com/release/', the group id is: 'net.stormdev', the artifactId is 'uPlanes' and I recommend you build it with the version set to 'LATEST'.

    Sadly not, it seems that with recent ish bukkit updates, there is no way to stop a boat breaking when it collides with blocks.

    Could You Add An Option To Have The Planes Be Boats Instead Of Carts Because I Use This With Ucars And It Can Get Confusing Have Them Both Being Carts

    This is a known bug and will be patched soon :)

    The max speed in the config for the planes doesn't seem to work. The speed still comes out really random and really HIGH. I really need to have the option work so if you could fix that issue that would be great because the plane speeds are entirely to high and cause to much lag when several players fly around and generate chunks.

    All supported minecraft versions are listed on the information for each version's download. Read there for which you can use. As for bukkit/spigot with this plugin it should for supported versions work on either. Maybe simply try it and get your answer that way ;p

    Hi @storm345 I was wondering,Is this plugin compatible with Bukkit servers or is it Spigot only ?

    @RCKing57: Go

    You can set the max speed of planes in the config :)

Do you prefer?
