Arkif's Hoverboard Mod

Hello everybody and welcome to my hoverboard mod! I hope you like it and enjoy this mod.

About the mod

As you have probably gathered already, this mod adds in futuristic styled hoverboards to Minecraft. There are also new items to craft the hoverboard and its power, as well as a new block to help with the crafting recipes. There are different types of hoverboards, each with different features such as missiles.
If you would like more information, check out the "What's in this mod" section or you can download it and play around with it yourself.


Installing 1.7.10
This mod uses the Render Player API made by Divisor.

1). Download and install Minecraft forge for 1.7.10 (files.minecraftforge.net).
2). Download the Render Player API for 1.7.10 (tinyurl.com/pq8hs45)
3). Drag the mod and API into the mods folder of your Minecraft. (mods can be found in ".minecraft" after typing "%appdata%". You may need to run the game with forge installed at least once for it to appear or create it yourself).

What's is this mod?

In this mod

The hoverboards (depending on the type) have up to 3 resources: heat, power and missiles. While moving or using options (mining mode, rockets and shield) the power will slowly decrease. Once the power bar is empty, the hoverboard won't be able to move until you add more fuel via the GUI. The heat will also raise as you use the hoverboard, increasing when using more features. If the heat bar becomes full, the hoverboard will overheat and fall to the ground as it tries to get rid of the heat. During this time the heat will decrease and the hoverboard becomes unusable, until the heat is 1/2 of the maximum. The missiles are shown at the top right. When shooting the missiles, the bar will decrease depending on the amount you shoot, and will eventually need to be refilled. Resources are not used in creative mode.

The image above shows the four variants of the hoverboards. The first one (Left to Right) is the basic hoverboard. This is equipped with its own GUI and you just right click it with an empty hand to mount it. You will be able to use WASD to control it and also customizable controls to go upwards and downwards (Default: Z, X). To open the GUI the default key is 'I' or click it with an item in your hand (or shift click with empty hand).

To the right of the basic hoverboard, there is the missile upgraded hoverboard. This will function the same as the basic hoverboard, but will let you launch missiles with the defualt key of 'R'. You are able to change the amount of missiles launched via the GUI arrow section.

To the right of that, there is the thruster hoverboard. This has a slight different model and has a thruster attached to the back. This will let you travel at faster speeds.

Finally, there is the advanced hoverboard. This is a combination of the missiles and thruster hoverboard.

All the hoverboards will cycle through different colours and can suck up close by items into the users hand (disabled in config or options). They also have the option to provide a light source when inside a dark cave (can be disabled in game or config for servers). Hoverboards also have a shield option to reflect projectiles and push mobs away. Going in lava will cause damage to the hoverboard and rapidly raise the heat bar, you will need to get it out fast before it gets stuck and destroys. Going underwater will loose heat but will also slowly damage the hoverboard.


The image above shows the HUD while riding the hoverboard. At the top middle, there is a power bar. This will display your current power that is in the hoverboard using a purple bar. When the bar is gone, it means the power is empty and the hoverboard won't work until you refill it via the GUI. Below is the heat bar, this will slowly increase while riding the hoverboard. The hotter the hoverboard is, more heat particles will be displayed. If it reaches max heat, the hoverboard will disable shortly and empty the heat half way. Heat decreases faster when the hoverboard is not in use and if it is raining when emptying the heat. Shooting missiles and going upwards will increase the heat faster.

In the left corner, there is a missile icon. The missile icon will decrease depending on the amount of missiles you have. If you have no missiles or request to shoot more than you have, then nothing will happen until you refill.


The image above shows the hoverboard GUI. All GUIs are the same but the non-missile hoverboards will not have a slot for the rockets. The GUI allows you to carry items and the two buttons also show more options. The right button will just tell you more information about your current hoverboard. The left will display options you can tick (WIP). You can turn off your hoverboard light source, although the tick box is still a work in progress. You can also disable your particles but this is mostly for single player. You can turn off all particles by going in the default Minecraft options. The two arrows on the GUI will allow you to decrease or increase the amout of missiles to launch. Above that, you can refill fuel and rockets using the two slots.


Above shows an image of the Hoverboard Builder. This is basically a larger crafting table to craft the hoverboards in. All the crafting recipes are currently a work in progress and are shown below.


The controls in the game shown above.


As of version 0.2, there is are new features. The hoverboard has a shield which can push mobs and projectiles (arrows etc) away. (I will update the rest later)

Crafting recipes

Crafting Recipes

Some of the crafting recipes are temporary as of now, I want to redo these soon.
Crafting Recipes

Other Minecraft version support

I will look to update this mod soon to 1.8 and above, but I may add some more features first on 1.7.10. (I may update when the mod is at v0.3)

How do I delete the board once I spawn it in? I can't seem to destroy it.
I just realized I never posted a link to my mod showcase. Sorry about that.

the mod is awesome and has a lot of potential, however, it has things that must be improved. They're only suggestions, so don't get me wrong for trying to help.

ps: sorry for terrible grammar.

1- the hoverboards can only be repaired by using instant health or regeneration potions.That needs to change. maybe you could make the board immune to potions and add a way to fix it with the table or a new item you could call "hoverboard repair kit".

2-the engine sounds are ANNOYING!!!! either change them or remove them, the other sounds are completaly fine.

3-the thruster model is waay too big for the hoverboard. Maybe you could change it for 2 or 4 small thrusters instead.

4-there is many upgrades you can add :
-water-proofing upgrade
-cooling system upgrade
-heat resistance upgrade
and many others

5-if the players could customize their own hoverboards, it would be awesome

6-for Notch's sake,make a way to carry the hoverboard as an item, because its annoying to push it around or use things like Extra Utilitie's "golden lasso" item to carry it around when you're not using it.

if i have any other ideas, i'll make sure to share it.

Thanks, nope it's fine :)

Sure I can try this, thanks for the suggestion.

Yes, I didn't know what sounds to use. Perhaps I will add in the config or options to mute the sounds.

Thanks for the suggestions, the mod is in the first version so there are many things I will try to add.
hey dude.So i was playing woth my friends and i have even more suggestions for you,if you're up for it.
1.add a owner system.this should be one of your first priorities because other players can steal your hoverboard.
2.mining mode=overkill much?you could make it a upgrade with 3 levels wich increases the mining radius.you could also add a cool laser drill effect when you use it. have some inspiration
3.the shield donesn't work properly.try to see what went wrong and where as soon as possible.
4 when the shield does work properly, you could make it repel water so you could use it as a underwater exploration type thing.
5.extra weapons

i am in no way rushing you. as a guy who tried to make mods myself, i know how hard coding can be.
Can i use this in my modpack?
