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.


Type Description
Ship Ships move onto of water
Airship Airships are one of the hardest to work because they are so demanding. Enjoy
Marsship ship 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
Plane Faster then all the other vessels, however, fuel is eaten
Submarine Moves under water
 Hybrid ship Moves both under water and over air at great cost

This sign is the licence sign, right click it to gain info about the vessel.

* [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]
