[suggestion] minecart PANTS!

  • Name: minecart pants!


    Description: The pinnacle of minecart technology that still has rails attached to it. The minecart pants are for those who seek high speed thrills without all the slow inventory juggling of conventional minecarts. To use them is simplicity its self. You wear the pants, you right click on a rail with your empty fist, you automatically lock to the rail and assume the "sitting in a minecart" position, and away you go!


    May be powered (whether by batpack or traditional coal I cant decide) allowing you to propel yourself at minecart speed under your own power and control.scrapped to similar to rejected idea and qsuit legs the rest of the idea is still being suggested


    recipe: ???

    true balance is impossible in video games the best one can hope for is to make it really hard to guess which of 2 choices are better.

  • 2 things


    Self Controlled EU Powered Minecart.
    Use Quantum Leggings.

  • LOL nice Idea. +1 for Cartmanpants*.


    * Evil Southparkcharacters with overweight are not meaned.



    Use Quantum Leggings.

    QLeggins are impossibru to use, if the Server/Internet/Minecraft lags too much.

    I don't say, your "insert whatever" is bad. I'm only showing ways for making it better.

  • Only +1 if:


    You get torn in half if you take a turn going too fast.

    ...What? There's no pineapples here.


    GENERATION Pineapple: The first pineapple you see, copy it into your sig on any forum and add sqrt(-1) to the generation. Pineapple experiment.

    First of all love the impossibru (I know its a typo just not one you see alot though :P )
    2nd It looks like you didnt see the top of my list. This would count as a controlled EU powered minecart.
    Wont happen.

    IMPOSSIBRU IS NOT A TYPO!!!

    VERY good point * scratch*scratch**scratch**mark**mark**scratch* FIXED the minecart pants are now just a super convenient standard minecart you can wear as pants that scream HAYO! your running speed before right clicking will factor into your speed when you switch to minecart mode. and when you do switch modes it should totally make the transformers noise :D

  • Nice


    Maybe it could use a small friction motor (extends the time that the minecart stays at the same speed) so that you dont have to hop off every 5 seconds.

    minecarts are capped at a top speed of 8m/s i think but they store momentum and sprinting is technically faster so i don't think a friction motor is necessary especially with modern rail way crafting practices

    Strangly worded post is strange...
    You could sprint for a bit and then jump on the rail. The number of blocks sprinted = the amount of momentum.

  • what i mean is the vanilla carts are hard coded with a max speed of 8m/s and anything that could make them go faster is stored as momentum in our case this is the players sprint speed. meaning we don't need any special tricks

  • Oh...good point...


    Also I realized that if you have rails anyway you would probrobly have already made powered rails.
