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'.

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

    I'm pretty much sure that I've asked it before (8months ago?), but I can't find it anywhere, so I'll ask again. Is it possible to limit the stats so you won't have extreme high speed lagging or crashing small servers (which happened to mine before)? Thank you

    Spigot have released a version of ProtocolLib for use with spigot 1.8, get it from http://ci.shadowvolt.com/job/ProtocolLib/ :)

    @thor999929: Go

    Tried with 1.7.10 ProtocolLib and indeed it needs an update for 1.8 spigot. Hopefully their team will get on it soon :) (I tried updating it myself but the Guava change in the spigot update seems to have broken the majority of the plugin and it's dependencies...)

    @thor999929: Go

    I already know that spigotmc.org is working on/ may have finished a 1.8 version of protocollib which will likely fix the breakage, however I will be doing some proper tests asap to get the plugin working. My guess is that the packets used have changed field names but were missed in spigotmc.org's test (or your protocollib is outdated). Don't worry it'll be working soon :)

    Uplanes appears to break with Spigot 1.8. Any ideas on how to get around this?

    @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
