Ships

Can I create a very large ship?

Yes, you can. However the default blocks limit for a ship is 15000 blocks. You can change this value by doing /physsettings maxshipsize 15000, or going in the config, depending on the version you're using. Furthermore, there is a hard cap of ship size at 32x32 chunks.

I have many hovercraft compressors placed on my ship, but it doesn't fly?

Your problem may be one of the following:

  • Your physics engine is disabled (Right click on the physics engine to enable it).
  • Your hover crafts controller has a too low height specified or the compressors are not connected with the hover craft controller.
  • Your ship is too heavy. You need to place more hover compressors or more Valkyrium.

I have lost my ship, can I have it back?

If your ship is too fast and moving on its own, it may be impossible to catch it. That's why it's good to build ships in isolated from the Overworld areas.

If your ship disappeared after crashing or rejoining the world, it may be incompatibility issues with other mods (See Compatibility list).

If your ship disappeared due to any other issue, you should report it at the GitHub issues page.

Do boats exist yet?

As of November 2019, no. See RFC:Boats.

Propellers wont connect to my engine! What do I do?

Do the following:

  1. Make sure your Ship is infused!
  2. Replace your Valkyrium Engine.
