    Atlanta is a pretty big place, so there's a lot of ground to cover if you're naturally adventurous.
    Sure, there's always walking/running to your location. But let's be honest here, how many of us actually have time for that when we're not in RP? With the various terrain we're given, from forests to rivers to the concrete jungle we all know, sometimes we need a way to travel faster.
    We have cars. But where's everything else? The SUVs, trucks, boats, bikes, or even some sort of air travel?
    I get that TMD takes place in a zombie apocalypse, but that shouldn't mean most means of travel should be barred off.

    The screenshot below is an example of the issue. We have the prop boats, but we can't even use them. What a shame.

    If we decide to update past 1.9 for the pvp and pve servers, I do want to look into redoing all of transportation. I want storage, trucks hold more than cars etc. Boats should be added, I wonder if we could model them to looks better. Horses are a must. I don't know how we'd do air travel tbh it could become buggy but Its something to look into

    For the air travel stuff, just reskin an Ender Dragon and change the sounds of it to sound like a helicopter/jet/whatever. It will be buggy at first, but if you can reskin regular horses (let's be honest, that's exactly what they are) for cars, this should be a cakewalk.
    There are plugins where you can mount usually unmountable animals somewhere on the internet.

    The requirements need to make actual block builds like the custom made boats and trains to move would create a ton of lag. We are looking into more variant skins for vehicles and possibly adding boats into the game. Again remember that the more 3D material we add to the resource pack the more heavy and lag fueled it becomes, which is way we paused after the police car addition and other skins after we saw how much lag back the resource pack gives.

    Also on the trains even if we made a 3D model train not all tracks connect and some go nowhere and then we have some that currently have things on them blocking the path.

    The horses are not reskinned they where summend invisible wearing an armor stand on there head with the item of the car model also there are better and less buggy car/plane plugins like ucars/uplanes
    If you use less single cubes for 3d models that should cause less lagg

    Why do we need more vehicles? I just see want want want not why why why. Boats are a waste of time, theirs only one river thats ever a pain to deal with its not that far either and has a ton of little islands in the middle. Air planes are op and would lag the server like crazy and we dont need suv's and trucks or whatever. Frankly some one could modify the texture pack to included other car types in place of the basic red, blue and, grey.

    But just having cars is so boring to see constantly. A little variation never hurt anybody.
    Hell, even the show had more vehixles than that.

    Well, I think it's a wonderful idea. I don't agree with air travel but boats, horses, and different vehicles wouldn't harm anyone. Plus with storage, it would be an amazing addition.

    As Jbentley said, making these many objects move would cause a lot of lag and would most likely make the game unplayable.

    We currently have cars, About a year ago now I made a cop car which is still currently in the game, so these would just be updated textures to resemble different vehicles like rejante is doing to the guns right now. Boats would be Minecraft boats, hopefully, remodelled but if not textured to that it looks good and fits with the game. Horses are horses which Jacob said we can add at some point.

    I am not suggesting something that we literally don't have right now.

    JB was talking about trains, air travel, and boats that are not the mc ones but custom ones.

    Well I want helicopters, one of the resource pack already has the them, and they look beautiful. Please add helicopters at least, because while forest are a lovely feature and allow for hours wasted seeing the same old sort of trees, a helicopter would allow for quick movement above the trees. The show has helicopters now, and while they are rare, they still should be a thing. Maybe a helicopter would be rarer than juggernaut armor and legendary weapons, but would have much higher health than bikes and cars, and would also be capable of flying anywhere > 240 y. But before you add new vehicles, fix the glitch, where if you break blue and grey cars, you get red cars, and if you break bikes, you get nothing. That's also pretty important. But most importantly delete kendrq.

    Bumping this thread
    Still a problem of the lack of variety and stuff.

    I'm personally wanting boats more than anything. Sure, you can use bridges, but that takes longer. And if you like shortcuts like me, the rivers are certainly not fun and is certainly time consuming to swim through.

    I am not opposed to boats. Everything else is not necessary or op.

    How is vehicle variety and horses not necessary? TWD had many different options for travel. Lol

    I've said previously im not opposed to horses either, however developing other new vehicles like trucks is a waste of time from a "development" standpoint.

    Having the same old bland red car isn't exactly a good thing, ya know?

    I have car skins. The staff should be working to make the server better and to nullify all the shitty updates they made.
