    A Brief Description

    Movecraft is a plugin that players to build crafts out of minecraft blocks. These crafts can then be piloted, moved around, and taken into battle with each other. Hence the name MoveCraft.


    Movecraft was first created by Yogoda for hMod.

    This is BaccaYarro's (AKA: Loraxe42) fork, which has been extensively refined, recoded, and optimized with an eye towards combat purposes. Although if you would rather sail the oceans or fly the skies of your world in peace, it does that well too.

    Here is a brief summary of Movecraft features:

    Control Method Options
    1. Sign and Pilot Tool
    2. Sign only
    3. Direct Control (the players movements control the craft)
    4. Misc Commands - /manoverboard, /release, etc
    5. Remote Signs to remotely activate command signs from other parts of the ship (Turn turrets, launch torpedoes, etc)
    Craft Options
    1. Basic craft configuration options including size, speed, allowed block types, required blocks, etc
    2. Customizable Cruise Control to keep the craft moving forward
    3. Customizable Fuel Burning behavior
    4. Customizable sinking/crashing behavior including smoke, explosion on impact, and uncontrollable dives
    5. Restricting motion to horizontal or vertical planes
    6. Customizable "Hover" land contour following behavior for cars and surface vehicles
    7. Optional craft teleportation
    8. Require water contact for sailing ships and water craft
    9. Allow travel underwater (or forbid it)
    10. Crafts that explode when they collide with things for ramming or torpedoes
    11. Repair signs to repair your ship, requires mats, and can require a fee. This feature can also be used to create factories that can automatically build crafts, including arming their weapons.
    Server Options
    1. Customizable Pilot Tool for craft control (or you can disable it to force sign only movement)
    2. Man Overboard timeout to allow anyone who falls out of a craft to get back in it
    3. Configurable WorldGuard protection against moving into forbidden areas or sinking over protected areas
    Conquest Options
    1. Siege system: fight in the siege cap region, and if the attacker is still in command of a craft at the end of a timer, the attacker takes over the region.
    2. Assault system: shell an enemy base, inflicting damage that they must pay to repair. If they do not, or run out of money, they lose ownership of the region.

    Movecraft uses the following permissions:

    movecraft.<craft name>.pilot
    movecraft.<craft name>.move
    movecraft.<craft name>.rotate
    movecraft.<craft name>.repair

    For example, if you have a craft named "Airship", you would need movecraft.Airship.pilot, movecraft.Airship.move, and movecraft.Airship.rotate in order to completely use it.

    There is also:
    movecraft.<craft name>.create - only required if RequireCreatePerm is set to true in config.yml
    movecraft.cruisesign - only required if RequireCreatePerm is set to true in config.yml

    movecraft.commands - grants access to /pilot, /cruise, /release, /rotateleft, /rotateright, /craftreport

    You can also control these granularly with:


    Movecraft does not require any other plugin to function, however certain features require additional plugins:

    WorldEdit (>6.0) - For repair system
    Vault - For payment system

    In addition, the following plugins are supported for compatibility:

    Cannons - Cannons will move with a piloted craft
    WorldGuard - Region protection
    Most common permission plugins - Assign permissions to various craft features

    Home Server
    The official home server of Movecraft is the Airship Pirates World server. This is based on the setting of the Airship Pirates YouTube series, which I also produce.

    You can find our forums here:

    Any funds from donations or premium versions of the plugin support Movecraft development or the Airship Pirates World server.


    Localisation is fully integrated into Movecraft 3. Locale can be set inside the config.yml.

    Most people here say the plugin doesn't work on 1.12 and RIP and stuff. And they're wrong. All you have to do is use version 5.0.2.

    Seriously. It surprisingly works perfectly on 1.12 if you use version 5.0.2.

    Works amazing, I'm eternally fond of the movecraft plugin. Had a bit of difficulty in getting it to work, but that was more of my fault than the plugin's.

    Version 6.0 give an error with MC 1.12.2, BUT, version 5.0.2 (5.5) works without error. I suggest all of you go back to that version.

    Still the greatest plugin for MC, I really hope he updates it to 1.12.2.

    R.I.P Movecraft. The greatest plugin Minecraft ever had. I will never forget the memories I made on this.

    This is a great plugin but it would be GREAT if the dev could update it to 1.12.2. I would rate it 5 stars then

    Version: 6.0
    This is a great plugin and was the only reason I kept playing Minecraft. But it's been stuck on 1.10 for a good long time now and I'm not sure if the devs abandoned this plugin, too lazy to update it or it's taking a long time to update it. If the problem is it's taking a long time to update, they should at least let us know. I will change my review if this update this plugin, but right now it looks like it is an abandon plugin. Movecraft, gone but not forgotten.

    Amazing plugin! Everything works good and there are a lot of options.
    Just a suggestion: It's difficult to search in the web all the functionalities of the plugin (and how to configure them). I recommend you to add a [Spoiler] where you can add the videos for Basic and Advanced uses of the plugin (videos).
