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.
Isn't this the really buggy plugin?
Ships has been known for its bugs however Ships 5 and above cleared out almost all of the bugs from Ships 4 and lower.
Struggling with the config?
Here is a more in-depth version to all config files within Ships
Test servers (these are public servers)
if you want to review and test versions of ships before they are out to the public, these are the places to go.

Minecraft 1.13 plan?
Ships 6 development has been put on hold and Ships 5.1 has stated development. Ships 5.1 is designed for Minecraft 1.13 using mostly the same code from 188.8.131.52. There are still huge changes within the Ships code so the initital releases of Ships 5.1 will be in Beta state however I will be fixing bugs as soon as possible, so expect a lot of beta versions.
Ships 5.1 release date?
Originally the plan was to release it 1-2 days after craftbukkit/spigot 1.13 come out, however since that plan Minecraft 1.13 has changed to add 1.14 features in. I am still expecting to release it 1-2 days after release however it maybe delayed, depending on how big the changes to Bukkit's code is.
Can we see Ships 5.1 development
Yes. If you look at the source code, click the branch called 1.13 and that is Ships 5.1
New features in Ships 5.1?
Originally it was going to be just a update to 1.13 and let Bukkit's code update the features and that is still the plan but there are going to be new features added into Ships 5.1 soon after its proper release such as the ability to have a material list for every ship type, as well as limit the amount of blocks you can have on a ship (aka 2 furnaces)
What about Ships 6?
As stated above, its only on hold. When 5.1 is stable enough. Ships 6 will get the port to Minecraft 1.13 and more features are coming to Ships 6 (the official pre-release Ships 6's are only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the features planned for Ships 6)
Are you a developer?
The image at the top labeled 'source code' leads to the github Ships 5+ page. But if you want to just start developing for Ships you can go to the Ships 5+ api page located here. This will tell you some things that you can do with the api.
The api is always developing, fixing bugs and issues and adding new parts to the API to make your programming life as simple as possible. If you wish to add something to the api. Don't be scared, just send a request on GitHub (preferred) or here (not preferred) and it will be taken care of.
