MoseMister / Ships

Allows you to move huge structures in a single click


Please read the following lines if you wish to download Ships Alpha

Ships (Bukkit and Sponge) has reasently been going though a whole rewrite of the plugin. At this current stage the Bukkit version is in full alpha while the Sponge version is still in PreAlpha. This means that the Ships plugin is very unstable at this point in time and the only reason why you can download it now is for testing and/or show-case reasons. It is not recommended at all to run this on a full time server.

Please also note that at this point in time, Ships on Sponge is a direct port of the Bukkit version. This means that some features maybe present on the Bukkit version but not on the Sponge version, despite both versions being based on one and another.

Last but not least, Ships and above are designed with the SpongeAPI in mind and not Bukkit’s, this is because I wish to eventually make Sponge the main platform for Ships. Therefore Sponge will get some excusive bonus content in the form of other plugins and will also get the updates first, however for this to happen the Sponge version of Ships needs to catch up

What is Ships?

Ships is associated as one of ‘MoveCrafts’ rival’s, 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 Sponge. 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.
