What is this mod?
ViesCraft is a light-weight, easy to use mod that brings something new to Minecraft, the ability to create airships! Airships consume fuel to fly and have an expansion module system which can enhance any airship to fit your needs.

Take your Airship experience a step further by choosing between:

- 4 Unique model types
- 30 Different frames
- 27 Balloon patterns
- Any balloon rgb color you want
- 11 Airship modules

Each frame type will dictate the base speed and max altitude the airships can achieve. The model type (v1-v4) only affects appearance.
Fly your faction's colors, change your frame appearance and just explore your world in style. Sky's the limit!

I also added a special little item called the Dismounter.
Have mobs/animals in your airship, minecart, etc? Use this item to safely get them out!

Update 4.13.0 Review!

Note for servers, you must enable flying in the server configs!

For recipes, check out the other photos for the mod/in-game guidebooks or JEI.
Please remember, when using any mod, to back up your worlds! Say no to lost world saves.

Main Guidebook recipe
Main Guidebook

  • - Airship pronunciations: Viesdenburg [Vise-den-berg], Viesigible [Vie-sij-ible], Viesepelin [ Vie-sep-lyn], Viesakron [ Vise-ah-cron].
  • - Use any vanilla fuel source to power any airship except for buckets of lava (by design). These items will burn for their vanilla burn times.
  • - All mod items except for the guide books and the Airship Workbench must be crafted in the Airship Workbench.
  • - The GUI for an airship can only be accessed by the steering player while mounted in the airship.
  • - When an airship runs out of fuel, it will not be able to elevate. All motion controls becomes stiffer and slower as well as it gradually descends. Pro Tip: Don't be over water or lava!
  • - If an airship is empty, it will float slowly at an increasing speed back to the ground. No need to worry about a fully fueled airship taking an hour to float back down, unless an animal is in it...
  • - While in a multiplayer server, if you are in an airship and log out, your airship will disappear with you. The server restarting has no effect on this. When you log back in, you will still be in your airship and still be flying. However, if you have any passengers and log out, they will assume control and you will drop out of the airship when you log back in...
  • - If an airship is destroyed by either water damage, creative destruction, or just the regular way to break the airship back into an item, any module inventory contents will be dropped on the ground! Make sure you have enough room to get all of your items!
  • - Config airship name strings are only taken from the Client. Setting it on the server makes no difference!
  • - Airships hate water! When you submerge it enough, it will start to smoke. If you do not get out in time, it will explode with a chance of dropping random parts. This will hurt...

Note for Modpack Creators
Everyone is free to use this mod in any modpack they want. I only ask that you give me credit (Viesis), don't make money off of it (keeping it free), and have a link back to this site (if you can). Otherwise, have fun with it!

I've been using this mod for a little while and I'm in love! Just a few things to note, though..
when using certain airship designs, my minecraft loses framerate and crashes within minutes. Even if I'm not using the airship, just having it rendered in the world is enough to bring mc down. I'm not sure if this is because of my non-gaming pc but it certainly puts a limit on what I can do with the mod.

And yes, I've tried giving more ram to mc but not only does it not help that much, but my pc doesn't really have much ram to spare.

I found a corrected a memory leak in update 4.38.44. That should fix your issue. Thanks!
no plane ?

Haha, no planes. :) I figured the flight simulator had that covered. For a little while I was toying around with the notion of helicopters, but you can only do so much with the models.

On the curse page, under images, I have guidebooks and the workbench recipe pictures. I also added the Main guidebook picture to this site's mod page. It is towards the bottom. The main guidebook has everything you will need in it.

I decided not to go down to 1.7.10. I would loose some functionality and have to rebuild the mod from scratch. Way too much work for only a hand full of interested people. :p

tmw "vies" means "filthy" in your native language

Not sure what native language you are assuming I am, but in English (my native language) to vie is to eagerly compete with someone in order to do or achieve something. vies is the 3rd person of it. Either way, not how the name came to be. ;) As with all things, there is a story behind it, but that is a tale for another time.

Hah, I already suspected it means something else in English. Idk it just sounded weird in Dutch, y'know

Haha, language can be a cruel mistress sometimes. At least I now know that the Dutch may think of me as unclean. Such is life. :)
looks cool :)

It is causing a lot of lag for me. I have a good computer and only optifine installed. Any advice?

I am using the version for 1.11 because that is the latest with optifine + x-ray

You most likely have to add more ram to Minecraft. If you log into a world where it is choppy and press f3, you probably see your ram is pretty much at max. This mod is a little bigger because I add 576 frame/color variants. I am working on a way to decrease it, but it will always remain a bigger mod. :)

Is there any for 1.7.10?

I am looking into it, focusing on another big update first though.
