The Ships mod gives you the ability to control small to large masses of blocks, possibly resembling ships, but also adds a few extra pieces to truly make your mass into a great functional ship. Yes anything from a 2 block raft to a 10,000 block battleship can be controlled with this mod.



The key to building a proper ship with this mod is building it above water to start and then making sure it follows guidelines on whether or not it will actually function. Each ship block will give you a GUI popup indicating whether your ship is the right size and whether or not it will even float once it’s launched. This gives you the ability to tweak your design before you end up ruining the whole thing by sinking it.


The basic ship needs only a ship block and a paddle and you’re off. This is really just a much sturdier boat but it won’t break easily and can float freely until you choose to dock it.


Anything beyond a small ship will need a helm in conjunction with the ship block as well as a few sails. More sails mean your ship will go faster. And even better is the helm will tell you how many registered sails you have so it won’t be a guessing game once you decide to launch your ship.


And you can even craft a Berth on your ship in place of a normal bed. Berths will allow you to retain the functionality of a bed and also create a roaming spawn point for you. So if you die you’ll always respawn back on your ship.


One more key aspect that sets this mod apart from others is the clipboard and ship projector combo. This allows you to make copies of ships. Essentially you use the clipboard to make the initial copy by right clicking any ship block attached to a ship. If you’re in survival mode, you’ll be able to use the Ship Projector to project an image of your ship as a hologram and then just simply build on top of it!

  5. Whenever I launch my ship it floods with water. I don’t know why it is only 300 blocks and there are no holes and the epic ship block says un-sinkable.

    • some things break when rushing water flows near them. are you sure that every thing is safe? also if you trap mobs you might have made something that you think is safe like if you trap blazes you might have made something like wool that is flameible to keep it contained and it made a hole in the bottom of your ship.

  24. hi great mod BUT

    is it normal that the hull is filled with water as soon that i launch the ship

    and can speed be different depending on how big the sails are

    June 13, 2018
    • The sails will make your ship faster, like a ship with three sails is going to go slower than one with five, and it is not normal for the ship to fill with water when you launch it, what i’d do is make the ship above the waters surface and when I launch the ship it falls in the water and then I’ll use it, it shouldn’t fill with water then.

      October 11, 2018
  25. Can I make a ship with things like doors, chests, and the like? Don’t care if they work while the ship is in ship mode, but can I dock and go down and have storage and whatnot?

    October 21, 2018
