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.

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'.

    @Kikiminecraft101: Go

    Planes have to be crafted or spawned. If this is still an issue get the latest from my jenkins server. (Development builds of this project can be acquired at the provided continuous integration server. These builds have not been approved by the BukkitDev staff. Use them at your own risk.) http://storm345dev.ci.cloudbees.com

    Hi! I currently have ucars and mario kart however when I craft the plane and place it it still says it's a car like it will say "you placed a car! ETC..." What can I do to fix this? Thanks

    @sukanron14: Go

    You need protocollib.

    Maybe in the future,

    Hey, I tried to download this plugin for my own server but when I do I can't use any commands and it doesn't show up in the plugin list (/pl). Does anyone know what I could try do? Thanks in advance

    @ChronoShaman: Go

    Your shop solution may or may not work, the planes work using the ITEM LORE; if that's correct, then it'll work. As for the plane shop not working; show me and I can help (It SHOULD work and will be better than using another plugin)

    Awesome plugin...

    Feature Request:

    *AFTERBURNERS!!!!*~ uses 2x the fuel for a quick boost activated by "spacebar"!

    I could not get the planes shop working so i found a way around it. I got the /iteminfo for the plane and used it in chestshops.

    Thank you so much for your awesome work!
