Introduction

For those who are adventure map makers for Vanilla Minecraft and need to build a railway system in your maps, here's an awesome tool for you to build and run it without any "mods".

The design of this tool is based on the subway system of my main Minecraft world, and you'll be able to build a similar minecart automatic contraptions using this tool! :)

This tool is currently applicable for Minecraft 1.13 and 1.12.x versions. Please refer to the download links listed above.


Features

  • Automatic minecart launcher command block, where a detector rail is automatically attached above whenever placing the command block. Please put this command block at the stopping position in each station. When a minecart triggers the detector rail, the cart will stops for a few seconds before it is automatically launched for departure.
  • Departure bells before a minecart leaves the station.
  • Automatic minecart removal. When a minecart departs from the launcher command block without any passengers, it will be automatically removed to avoid blocking on the halfway.
  • Minecart direction control, which corrects the direction of minecarts at your desired locations.
  • Minecart dispensers, which generate a minecart where a specific color tile is attached. There are 30 different color tiles available on your choice.
  • [NEW] [1.13 only] Speedometer data pack, showing your current speed on the sidebar, in km/h.


Future Plans

  • ✅ Minecraft 1.13 support.
  • ✅ Fixed the problems when running on a Spigot server.
  • Add support to platform gates and screen doors.
  • Customizable line names.
  • Customizable departure bells.
  • Instant effects that help overcoming the terrains when building railway lines, ex: night vision, tree remover, instant /fill commands.


How to install this tool

Please follow the links as listed above. Since this tool only consists of functions of commands in Vanilla Minecraft, it should be very simple. :)

FAQs

Q1: Why did you classify this tool as a "mod" instead of a "project"?
A1: I classified this tool as a "mod" in this post for its functionality. By applying this tool in your map, the tool indeed modifies the behaviors of minecarts when stopping at the auto-launcher command block, which requires a function that consists of dozens of commands involving numerous NBT and tag command (1.13) / scoreboard tag (1.12.x) operations.
* For 1.13, this tool is designed as a data pack containing the functions and the tags.

Q2: Could I use this tool in a modded version of Minecraft (ex. Forge, or a plugin server)?
A2: Currently this tool is still under testing. For any related issues whether it works or not, feel free to comment below.

Q3: Is there any source code for this project?
A3: Yes. See on my GitHub page (for 1.12.x and 1.13).

The download link of this tool for 1.13.x and 1.12.x are different. Please make sure that your Minecraft version is correct. ☺
Does this works in 1.13.1?

Of course. Please download the one which supports 1.13, and you may load it as a 1.13.1 datapack in your map. Hope it helps. 😀

Hey ! This is extremely interesting ! I did not checked out in game but it seems very efficient ! Now if you get the time I would suggest a mode that doesn't break the minecart, it just stop, and continue again. That could work in a 3rd type of platform, which I think could be interesting for automatic subways !
