Ships Mod lets you build a ship out of blocks and sail it around the world!

Other mods have attempted this in the past. Some of these projects have been abandoned, and in my opinion, the remaining ones leave something to be desired. Ships mod is my take on how I think sailing should work in Minecraft and this aims to be a high-quality and feature-rich mod.

The latest version is 1.7.10-1.0.4

Don't worry though, the Minecraft 1.6.4 version is still available.



If you want to stay up to date about releases and updates, follow me on Twitter: @cuchaz

Features:
  • Make a ship out of blocks
  • Launch it into the world for sailing
  • Dock the ship again to make changes to the blocks
  • Flotation based on physical simulations
  • Walk around on your ship
  • Place chests and crafting tables on your ships
  • Ships actually displace water (no more water in the bottom)
  • Tiny raft-type ship makes getting started on survival mode easier
  • Small-type ship uses sails and a helm
  • Based on Minecraft Forge
  • SP and MP support


COMPATIBILITY NOTES:
  • Ships Mod works with Java 6, 7, and 8.
  • Ships Mod is not compatible with Smart Moving. Ship collision is disabled somehow by Smart Moving.
  • Ships Mod has problems with Secret Rooms Mod. Apparently textures go haywire.
  • Ships Mod for Minecraft 1.7.10 is not compatible with Cauldron/MCPC. Cauldron/MCPC uses an outdated version of Forge (v1207) but Ships Mod requires at least Forge v1230 which is the current "recommended" version for Forge for Minecraft 1.7.10.



HOW TO INSTALL

  1. Install Minecraft Forge. Get the "Recommended 1.7.10" version.
  2. Download the Ships Mod JAR file
  3. Put the JAR file in your minecraft/mods folder.

Does redstone work on the ships while they're sailing? Like can I "fire" dispensers while the ship is in motion?
That would really be a cool thing to have...

Hello Cuchaz I am very interested in your mod for a modpack, but sadly won't be able to add it until you update to 1.8 so when do you think you will have the mod updated.
Nice i enjoy it :)

Is it possible that you could update this mod to 1.10? The only mod I know of that has ships for minecraft is archemedes ship mo but you cannot walk around the ship like in this mod and it doesnt have the same amazing stuff your mod has.

I'm not planning on it. But others are working on new features for the mod. Read up on the MCF thread for more info.
Hello! I really like your mod. But here the problem. Your mod - the only one in which it is possible to build a large ship. I want to build a cruise ship, but a pair of metal blocks or clay drown him. And to build ships of a wool and wood boring. Add more options for the construction of modern ships: container ships, passenger liners. Please.

You may be interested in the blocks config options. Want metal blocks to be buoyant in water? No problem, just make them less massive.

Can you deal damage to players on a ship?

And also is it possible to make it so you can dock the ship in all cardinal directions?

That sucks big time
Things i would like to see

  1. you know the rows on a fairy boat? that would good nice with the mod if capable of creating this item
  2. Propellers there would be two types such as one on a small patrol boat or a fishing boat than the one that would be on a battleship
  3. If in creative mode you can switch how high the boat can float or low
  4. make it where it doesnt matter where your facing to dock
  5. Maybe cannons for naval sail ships
  6. if good at creating 3D objects make a customised sail where u can fold them up (if possible to go that far)

Oooh! We're sharing lists of things we want. That sounds like fun. Here's what I would like to see:


  1. Getting paid to work on mods

  2. A Minecraft modding framework where it was easier for different mods to be compatible.

  3. More free time so I could afford to work on mods without getting paid

  4. Or better yet, an economic system where I can spend my time doing what I want instead of what I need to do to pay rent and feed myself.

  5. Less violence


On a side note, you may be interested in this Ships Mod add-on that adds different kinds of sails.
woah thanks i never saw this but yes i hope you do get paid and etc i really do love your mod <3

Hello Cuchaz! First I'd like to thank this mod, i realy enjoyed everytime I spent on the sea with this mod :) I'd like to ask you if u can fix a problem? At 1.6.4. Minecraft version I used to use ships to transport oil form far distance, like desert biom or oceans, with Buildcraft red galss container, on the board. But after 1.7.10 Mc version, after i lunched the ship, and then stop, the oil, or any liquid disappeared from the tanks. I tried many many way to make it work, but i ended up the same way. Plus IndustrilCraft 2 blocks also disappeared, or rotated, and e.g. batboxes lost their collected energy.

Can you make them compatible each other again? This would be a great way to use ships besides that is fun already :) I am pretty sure this would be a popular sollution for many people who try to play the game realistically. :) And keep up the good work! :)

Thanks! I'm glad you're enjoying the mod. =)

It's pretty hard to make Ships Mod work with every kind of mod block ever, so I don't guarantee compatibility. I'm sorry it's not working for you, but it would take too much time for me to fix it. I don't have much time for modding these days. That said, Ships Mod has always been open source. Contributions are welcome from everyone.

Yay! Modding is fun! Don't expect to make money from it though. Minecraft modding doesn't pay. Hopefully, by "career" you really just mean hobby. =)
Yes, I wouldn't make money off of a specific mod that doesn't belong to me or one that I've created and yes I do mean hobby.
Is it possible to build submarines with this mod?

Hey cuchaz, recently I just installyed this and hands down in my top 5 favorite mods! I am having an issue with my lighting though as soon as I finish it up and undock all my torches and lighting goes out. They are still there with the animation and everything but just no light coming off of them. Do you have any clue how to fix this? works fine when I'm holding them. Love the mod besides this minor inconvenience. Thank you so much for the awesome work!

Lighting on ships doesn't work yet. It's on the todo list.

Ahh ok thank you I was wondering if that was the case. I remember reading somewhere that it's much easier to do with the tourches than glowstone. I don't remember the reasoning but it seemed solid at the time. Just a tip to hopefully help you out when you get to that part.
"forge mod loader has found a problem with your minecraft installation The mods and versions listed beloe could not be found cuchaz.ships.core : any the file 'logs/fml-client-latest.log' contains more information" No idea what any of that means, but its preventing me from using the mod, and the game.

Weird, Ships mod and it's required core component are packaged in the same jar file. It should be impossible to have one without the other. Try updating to the newest version of ships mod?
Well i have no idea what did exactly, but it seems i figured it out, just not sure how,
  • cuchaz
  • Level 75
  • Legendary Modder
  • January 28, 2016, 5:41 am
Aha, I know what you did. Don't extract the jar file. Just move the whole jar file to the mods folder. Also, don't use winrar. Ever. =)
Is there a certain program i should be openeing it with? should i not open it with winrar?
I tried downloading n earlier version, and it gives me the same message.
I downloaded the latest version, and extracted the entire jar file to my mods folder, and it gives me that exact message, no matter how many times i uninstall, and redownload the entire thing

There's probably a way to do it, but it would be a lot of work for me.

  • September 5, 2015, 11:59 am
I'll probably skip 1.8 and go straight to 1.9 instead.
Once all the desynch bugs are worked out this will likely be my favourite mod. I searched the forums and the Minecraft Forum thread and was surprised to see that nobody had suggested the ability to sail on lava. My suggestion is that you make it so that nether brick is a floating block like wood and that you can build ships out of it to sail on lava. Perhaps add a special kind of ship block that adds the ability to do this so that normal ships can't float on lava, just the nether ships can. Help us sail the forgotten seas of the Nether!
  • cuchaz
  • Level 75
  • Legendary Modder
  • August 27, 2015, 7:09 am
Nether ships would be awesome! It's hard to imagine any kind of ship sailing on lava though. Lava is really hot. We'd need a way to shield the ship (and its occupants) from all that heat.
Perhaps you have to meet a minimum ratio of blocks of your ship that have to be made of nether brick, which would be the equivilant of thermal insulation plating. This would make it so that you would have to be careful about how you built your ship since if you don't have enough buoyant blocks the ship would sink beneath the lava.

It's an interesting idea. I'll have to think about it. =)
Awesome! I can't wait to see what you do with it.

It would truly make the player have to think hard and challenge themselves, given some of the lava pools are not deep and some gaps between lava oceans are narrow. You'd have to make a small, narrow boat with a roof over your head to shield from ghast attacks.

All the more reason to like the idea. :)

Try pointing it N, S, E, or W. If you have a helm, your compass should point you in the right direction. Look for the red spot.
