Enhanced Rails 1.6.1

New tools and blocks to make rails more fun!

  1. chocobodundee
    NEW THIS VERSION: Inverted Railcar, Rocket Platform and Hydroponic Platform!
    This mod adds new ways to build and interact with rails.

    -2 New Rail types: Slick Rails which have far less friction than normal rails and support a higher max speed and Cosmetic rails with unique appearances for each paint color.

    -2 New Rail objects: Rail Booster and Rail Brake. When turned on any rail riders that pass over them will be sped up or slowed down.

    -2 New Items: Mag-Lev Rail Hook, an upgraded railhook that propels itself along any rail, allowing the rider to ascend rails against gravity, and change direction while moving. Accelerator Hook, and upgraded mag-lev that picks up speed on its own.

    -New Tech: Rail Sphere, A distortion sphere tech that latches to rails like a hook. The compact size means the player can fit through narrower rail tunnels.

    -8 New Platforms: Guard Platform, a self propelled turret that follows rails and protects you from enemies. The Adjustable Platform that can change speed by interacting. The Railgun Platform, a slower, stronger guardplatform that hits an area. The Railcar and Inverted Railcar, sit down and coast your rails. The Flame Platform burns any enemy underneath. The Rocket Platform launches a barrage of homing missiles at foes. The Hydroponic Platform waters crops below.

    All new items are craftable from the Rail Crafting Station and are learned on the pickup of a normal Rail Hook.
    In admin mode the item IDs to spawn them are: slickrail, railbooster, railbrake, maglevrailhook, guardplatform, adjustableplatform, acceleratorhook, railgunplatform, railcar, flameplatform, railcarinverted, rocketplatform, hydroponicplatform.
    Currently the only way to gain the railsphere tech is to use the command /enabletech railsphere

    Most excellent.

    Everything works as expected, except the rail booster.. Is it supposed to speed up the platforms too or only hooks? Because it does not do anything to my platform, it just stays the same speed..

      It only affects the railhook and ball. Platforms have a fixed speed and ignore things like gravity and friction.
