Trains get people where they need to go. Similarly, the TrainCraft mod (the mod formerly known as the Trains and Zeppelin Mod), gets Minecraft players where they need to go.
There are a number of different trains included in TrainCraft, such as:
In total, there are over 80 different types of trains, wagons, and other moving vehicles added to the game through this mod. Players can craft railway tracks and build trains that go up and down those tracks – just like a real train!
This mod is SSP, SMP, and LAN compatible, making it easy for you and your friends to make some complex train systems inside any Minecraft world.
After installing this mod, you’ll want to craft a Traincraft Guide, which contains all of the important information you need to know about this mod.
Another change you’ll notice after installing this mod is that oil, petrol, and copper now generate in your world. Petrol and oil sands are extremely important – diesel locomotives require diesel in order to run, and you’ll need to create diesel fuel by distilling oil sands or crude oil in a distillation tower.
As you can see, you’ll need to do a lot of work before you start riding your train around your Minecraft world. After creating the appropriate fuel, you’ll need to craft a locomotive and, if you choose, some carts.
Players interact with carts by pressing R, which brings up a unique GUI. You can use the GUI to add water, fuel, brakes, and cargo to your trains. You can drive your train by pressing W and S to go forwards and backwards. And the best part? You can press H to blow a really loud train whistle.
There’s even a zeppelin in this mod. After crafting a zeppelin, you can fly it around the map using basic WASD movement controls. To go up or down, simply look up or down with your mouse. Once you’re at the altitude you like, you can lock in that altitude by pressing C and unlock it by pressing X.
Traincraft is a train mod, a zeppelin mod, and an industrial transportation mod all rolled into one. Download it today to check it out!
