Hallo there people who love modded Minecraft!

EwyBoy here! 

I am proud to finally release the public beta of my second mod called Floating Rails.

I have played Minecraft since the Minecraft indev version and there has always been 1 thing that has annoyed me a lot. You have to fill in the water when you are going to lay a mine-cart track across the ocean, lake, pond or a river. 

Are you tired of this?

Not anymore!

With Floating Rails you have the ability to place the rails directly on top of the water. I made it so the rails are supported by a lilypad to keep the rail floating.



I added a big variety of rails who floats on the water.



But water was just not enough
So I added in lava-lilies that spawns around on top of lava lakes both in the overworld and nether.



Lava-Lilies + Rails =



Altogether we got this: 


 
The Crafting

The crafting is a bit special. Either you want to or are limited by resources you can always chose between to craft everything between 1 – 8 floating rails and end up using the same amount of lilypads. I know lilypads are a pain in the as to find and I did not want to make it too craft these rails. So here is the deal. Place 1 lilypad anywhere in the crafting grid and then put in as many rails you want to turn into floating rails. 



Same goes for the lava any other type of rails like powered etc.

[Because of the way the recipe system works the mod also works great with RailCraft aswell]

WIP - Work in progress

This is going to be a redstone torch peaceable on top of the water to help you activate the rails who
requires a redstone signal to function. Comming soon.

I think the lava lillies should stand out more. Maybe an obsidian texture would work better.

Yes it is, but you have to hard code it and also make so the minecart is able to climb it. I think RailCraft got a ladder rail.

Nope, sorry it is not going to happen. It is a bit hard to make the rail spawn in thin are at the exact position you want em to spawn.

Nice review! The lava rails works aswell. You have to getr the rails from the custum creative tabs I added to get the working rails. I am working on getting the redstone to work properly. Also there was a error in the algorytem that makes the rails able to climb waterfalls. I am going to fix that in todays patch. Thanks for the review btw.

I like the idea of "Lava Lillies" - anything to add a bit more interest to the vast lakes of lava in the Nether.
