JavalCars Mod for Minecraft 1.6.4/1.7.2/1.7.4/1.7.5

Taming and riding horses is cool and all, but who wouldn’t like to race off into the sunset in a brand new sparkling rainbow car?  TeamJaval has added a basic car to Minecraft with some color customization options and a surprisingly detailed crafting scheme.


The cars presented in this mod aren’t particularly incredible – they are a simple rectangle shape that looks almost like a minecart.  Nonetheless, they are fun to drive.  The mod is in its early stages, so more features for these cars could be in the future.  Currently the only feature (aside from driving them of course) is the consumption of fuel.  Coal must be added to the vehicle by shift+right-clicking on it.  Shift+right-clicking the car with no item equipped will open an inventory screen.  If nothing else, these are sweet mobile storage units!


Assembling your car is actually a rather complex process, as it is in real life.  Let’s work backwards to identify everything you need.


The entire car is assembled in a unique crafting table called a Car Assembly.  The final product requires 7 iron plates, two pieces of strong glass, a headlamp, an engine, and two wheels on axles.


To create the car assembly, you will need five iron plates, some redstone, two pistons and a torch:


The iron plates are very important.  They are made by placing four pieces of iron in a square.  Wheels are also made with iron, but with each placed in the four side directions (top, left, bottom, right).  To put rubber on a wheel, surround it with leather.  Create an axle with three pieces of iron in a horizontal row, and put the wheels on the axle by putting one axle in-between two wheels.  Remember that you need two of these.


Strong glass is made by filling the corners and center with glass panes and the sides with iron plates.  The headlamp is made with a redstone lamp, redstone, and iron plates:


And finally, to finish off the car, you need an engine of course.  The engine is similar to the car assembly; it needs four iron plates, a redstone torch, two redstones, and two pistons:


Remember that your car can be dyed by surrounding the finished car with dyes!
