Want to expand your mine cart network in Minecraft? Then the Expanded Rails Mod will help. The Expanded Rails Mod adds a number of new mine cart rail track variations to the game.
Some of the new mine cart rail tracks only look different from vanilla Minecraft rail tracks, while others have different features and functions.
Basically, the goal is to make the Minecraft rail cart system more interesting and fun to use. To do that, the Expanded Rails Mod has added the following things to the game:
-Rail tracks in every color and ore material
-Monorails (monorails move faster)
-Armed Monorail (creates massive explosions in a moderate radius around the rail track, destroying everything in the path of the mine cart)
-Chain Monorail (pulls carts up hills slowly without needing power)
-Ender Pearl Monorail (tracks can be placed in the air with no need to touch the ground)
-Lapis Lazuli Monorail (a Lapiz Lazuli track causes your mine cart to bounce in the air and leave the tracks. This can be used to raise the mine cart to new elevations or simply to add some fun to your mine cart ride.
-Players can now bounce and explode while riding in mine carts
All of these tracks can be mixed and matched to create a continuous railway line. In other words, you can create a bunch of diamond rails before a Lapiz Lazuli rail to let your mine cart bounce in the air. This creates some very cool combinations and creative railway alignments. However, monorail tracks must be placed with monorail tracks and railway tracks must be placed with railway tracks.
Advanced rails must be crafted using an Advanced Crafting Table, so don’t expect to create everything in the Expanded Rails Mod using a standard crafting table. The recipes are very similar to the vanilla mine cart track recipes, although the creator of the Expanded Rails Mod has left most of the recipes hidden for players to discover.
Mine cart tracks are an important part of Minecraft. To customize your tracks and make them look totally different than ever before, download and install the Expanded Rails Mod for Minecraft today.
