Quickly explore the vast terrain with the magical flying carpet. Fly safely and preserve your energy to make the most of it.
The carpet flies fast horizontally, but very slowly is it able to move vertically. It constantly reduces your mana resources, you can't use it forever (note: only if Mana mod is installed). Also, long flights, scratching and crashes will cause long-term damage to the flying carpet.
How to use
(note: very detailed instructions are also in the readme file)
To obtain it in Minetest Game (and similar games), use this crafting recipe:
Red Wool, Yellow Wool, Red Wool
Yellow Wool, Red Wool, Yellow Wool
Mese Crystal, Gold Block, Mese Crystal
To obtain it by cheating, use “/giveme flying_carpet:carpet”.
Look to the desired initial flight direction and place the carpet on any flat surface, make sure it has enough space. Then rightclick it to depart.
Flying the carpet is a bit tricky, because it flies fast, you can't fully brake and the turning speed is rather low. Be careful not to crash into the landscape!
If the carpet is under a certain critcal speed, it loses its magic and just drops on the ground. This also happens if you crash into the landscape! Crashing might hurt you, so be careful. But falling with the carpet causes less damage than falling normally. Still, you better don't want to crash too often. ;-)
Your carpet will also stop working if your mana resources are depleted (only if Mana mod is installed and active).
When your carpet stopped working, you have to collect the carpet (punch it) and place it again.
If you fly directly down onto solid ground, your flying carpet will come to a halt quickly.
Your carpet can not fly into liquids from above, but it can fly into them from the side or even below. But be careful, being submerged in a liquid may slow you down a lot!
Your carpet will also wear out over time when flying (very minor wear), sliding (pretty minor wear) on the ground and especially collisions at high speed (major wear). At high wear levels, the carpet will emit black star particles, at critical wear levels it will emit an annoying sound. At this point you have roughly up to (!) 5 minutes worth of flight left before it disintegrates under your feet, so you should land as soon as possible. If you fly perfectly, you can use a single flying carpet for about 12 hours.
If you leave a carpet alone and it rests for 1 minute, it will disappear and is gone for good.
