A Really Good Idea

by stormrider2 » Post

I just thought of a really good idea for this game today. And that idea is making vehicles. What if we had eight steel blocks and one lump of coal make a motor. And the blocks that surround the motor will be a car, boat, or a train. The number of motors a vehicle has will determine its speed.

Good idea indeed , but a max speed should be set (max 4-6 engine blocks I say) and base on engine determine the max vehicle weight. You sad "car, boat, or a train" why not helicopter , airplane ? It should be implemented some sort of ramps , smoth terrain , or just half of blocks to make vehicles run on them. And the physics engine its hard to make i think ...
Anyway , for all of this need to redesign the hole engine , because the loading could block players if the area isn't loaded fast enough , so if two players are in the same vehicle and one player load the area faster , one of them can just fall off ...

I like the idea of vehicles too, but would rather see large, slow moving vehicles like ships and airships/blimps. What would really make it awesome would be to be able to build the entire thing out of blocks. I see people building ships in Minecraft all the time and they look great!

Just came across "Blockade Runner", which has moving entities at could inspire how to implement vehicles in Minetest.
