    Whoa... your water is doing something weird there.

    Anyway, I eventually want to write some wiki articles that explain how all the ship physics work and educate people on how to build ships with the properties they want. Alas, it hasn't happened yet, so right now people are just trying to figure these things out for themselves.

    The short version is, dense blocks are heavy and make your ship ride lower. Light blocks are buoyant and make your ship float higher. Some blocks aren't watertight at all, and water will pass right through them.

    Eventually I think I'll make a tool that prints out these physical properties for every known block and post the result on a website somewhere. That would probably be useful.

    Ha, don't worry, that was just a quick worldedit to show the shape. I was convinced that had something to do with it. And that sounds most useful, though what's the lightest block at the moment?

    What might be a cause for concern, though, is opening a chest on an active ship generates this error in the server console:

    So what's taken into consideration when the mod figures out how high a boat floats? I find all of my designs ride way too close to the waterline (about a block off from sinking, in fact!) and I can't seem to determine why. I'm not going for anything uber realistic here..

    Ha, cripe, this has come a ways since the first post!

    If I might pose a question, when's the server going up?

    Hey, I'm caught between you and one of your competitors right now - I've had nothing but good experiences with Beastnode in the past but they're offering more hardware at the same pricepoint. I guess it boils down to, well, what control panel is distributed with your VPS packages?

    posted a message on Looking for a kid-friendly server
    Hi, I played Minecraft regularly a while back and managed to get my younger brother & sister hooked. So for Christmas, I bought them an account to share, and loaded up the server list with places I used to play on that I knew would be, well, 'safe' for them.

    But as it turns out, many of them have gone down since I set that up, and they're getting bored. I don't really play MC anymore, and have no time to look for servers nowadays between school and the job, so if anyone could recommend one or two that have active staff preventing the uglier side of the internet from shining through I'd really appreciate it.

    Thanks.

    Just going to interject here, Oracle is dropping support for 6 now, even. You really shouldn't have to do this; after all, 'if you build it they will come.'Just going to interject here, Oracle is dropping support for 6 now, even.

    Not 100% sure this is a bug, but entities don't seem to like moving along with the ship. Do they just have to be placed on post-conversion?

    By the way the Helicopter Mod(By the japanese dude) is kind of incompatible. All helicopters just drop on ships after you activate them...wanted to make a small aircraft carrier :(


    Just use Flan's.

    Consider this if you wish to implement anything similar to, like or as this suggestion.

    A ) In space, there is no terminal velocity
    B ) According to the law of inertia, the blocks wouldn't keep accelerating without some kind of propulsion
    C ) Even a big piece of ship would likely burn up in the atmosphere, it's pointless to pick up what is basically an iron nugget (1/9 of ingot) covered in lava.

    Incidentally, do you developers still have the map with the battlecruiser shown in the banner?
    P.S. Do you guys have a website?
    P.P.S. I know you have forums, of course.
    P.P.P.S. Does this conform to Newton's laws, such as inertia and acceleration? It's kind of strange to stop as fast as breaking a netherrack block with an efficiency V golden pickaxe, and it's even stranger to go from a dead stop to 185,999.99999 miles per hour.


    There's some debate on that, but the general consensus seems to be as realistic as possible without compromising gameplay value.

    btw: Any pics of your booth babe this year? Or will you be having to wear the outfit again? I really think they should pay you more.

    I find that way more attractive than I probably should.
