Driving Vehicles

Driving a Navycraft vehicle is universal, however they very per vehicle type. The following are driving instructions per vehicle type. These will may have duplication due to some sharing same features as the other.

Basic Driving

All vehicles have Vehicle Control Signs, they are the steering and speed control for vehicles. They follow the same instructions seen below.

  • Starting Vehicles
    Click on Vehicle Sign, you will receive that's vehicle type's specific armor and a gold sword. That gold sword is known also as a Control Sword, which let's you steer and control speeds. You must remain next to it to remain in control of the vehicle's active controls.

The following is type specific instructions on driving. All these vehicles have "gears", not unlike real life vehicles. These must be changed in order to increase speed of the ship beyond going very slow.

Ships

Ships are main vehicle featured on the server.

  • After Starting, the ship will begin to move slowly.
    Shifting Gears
    While holding the Control Sword, hold the SNEAK BUTTON and RIGHT Click the MOUSE button to shift Gears of ship. You will get the message Gear [1], Gear [2]. Some case there is three gears.
  • Notes (Gears): Remember that using high gears its harder to control the ship and do battle.
  • Increase Speed
    Right click the control sword to go from Stop/Slow/half-speed/full/flank.
  • Notes (Speed): Speed can mean life or death for a ship. Torpedoes can be dodged, bombs missed from hitting your vehicle. However, you can miss hitting due to sheer speed.
  • Turning the Ship
    Once you are out of Safedocks, you will be allowed to steer/turn. To change directions (left or Right), while standing at Vehicle signs, face direction you want to go. One right click will slide your vehicle to the left or right at angle without changing facing of the ship. If you right more than once in any direction, you will completely turn the vehicles.
  • Notes (Turing/Steering): Changing direction can cause anyone using weapons to loose their targets or worse cause them to miss while firing. Its good idea to announce on /crew or plain tell them your changing course and turning the ship.
  • Stopping a Ship
    When a player control the ship wants to stop. They must be using the Control Sword and face away from the Vehicle sign and right click it. This will click down the speed until stop. This is necessary if players wants to slow down to fight someone, or launch a mini-vehicle.

Aircraft

Aircraft are main flying vehicle found on the server. It should be noted that Helicopters and Zeppelins do not follow same methods of flying as this type. However if used as Hybrid Vehicle, using both signs. These instructions can be applied.

  • After Starting, the Aircraft will begin to move slowly.
    Shifting Gears
    While holding the Control Sword, hold the SNEAK BUTTON and RIGHT Click the MOUSE button to shift Gears of ship. You will get the message Gear [1], Gear [2] and Gear [3]. Some case there is three gears.
  • Notes (Gears): Remember that using high gears its harder to control the ship and do battle.
  • Direct Aircraft to go UP
    One most important things to do with a air vehicle, to tell it to immediatally go UP. Have your avatar look UP and right click that direction.
  • Increase Speed
    Right click the control sword to go from 30% to 100%.
  • Notes (Speed): Increasing speed is critical for aircraft. If the vehicle is not going up beyond 40% power, the plane will fail to ascend and crash into the ground immediately after leaving safedocks.
  • Choose height you want to fly
    As you exit the safedock your plane is going continue to go UP. You want stop this or you will have difficulties finding enemy vehicles to attack or landmarks to navigate from. To stop ascending or going up, you wand face down and right rick ONCE. By doing so you will receive the message the aircraft is no longer going up. If you went too high up, you can face down and right click more than once to descend or go down.
  • Notes (Controlling Height) : Remember when you go down, you need pay attention how far up you are. If you are not careful you can crash into the ground or run into a mountain.
  • Turning the Aircraft
    Once you are out of Safedocks, you will be allowed to steer/turn. To change directions (left or Right), while standing at Vehicle signs, face direction you want to go. One right click will slide your vehicle to the left or right at angle without changing facing of the ship. If you right more than once in any direction, you will completely turn the vehicles.
  • Notes (Turing/Steering): Changing direction can cause anyone using weapons to loose their targets or worse cause them to miss while firing. Its good idea to announce on /crew or plain tell them your changing course and turning the ship.
  • Slowing down your Aircraft
    When a player control the aircraft wants to slow it down so you may bomb or shoot your other weapons for example. You must be using the Control Sword and face away from the Vehicle sign and right click it. This will click down the speed you wish to go.
  • Notes (Speed) : Remember if you speed your plane to less than 40% power, your plane will lose altitude and move downwards at angle until it crashes into ground.
  • Note (Landing) : It is virtually difficult to land aircraft. This involves the plane going very slow 2 blocks above ground and disabling the plane. Most cases this low speed usually causes a plane to explode.

Submarines

Submarines are essentially ships that can travel underwater. They can operate exactly the same as ships if not used as submarine. The above controls for Ship, can be followed. The Commands for Submarine can be added to what is seen above.

  • After Starting, the Submarine will begin to move slowly.
    Shifting Gears
    While holding the Control Sword, hold the SNEAK BUTTON and RIGHT Click the MOUSE button to shift Gears of ship. You will get the message Gear [1], Gear [2]. Some case there is three gears.
  • Notes (Gears): Remember that using high gears its harder to control the ship and do battle.

While you can change speeds, you can also have your submarine to dive underwater. These controls operate the same as aircraft. However you are required to following steps to us them

  • Diving underwater
    First step is to click the Subdrive sign. This will switch your mode from Surface to Electric.
    Second Step is to click the Ballasttanks sign an you click it until it says "Flood". This will fill your Endstone water tanks so the ship will grow heavy and sink. There will be simple graphic showing water filling up the tank. YOu want make sure you stop it before it gets past the middle point.
    Third Step is to face downward aright right click that direction down. This will produce "Down Bubble" message indicating the submarine is diving downward.
    Fourth Step you want to do is stop going down before crashing into hidden debris on the bottom or ground itself. To do so face UP and right click ONCE up. This will stop you from diving.
    Last Step is to click the Ballasttanks and right click until the sign says Equalize. This means your no longer filling up your water tanks.
    You can now drive the submarine like a ship underwater with the associate commands with exception going back up. See Going Up.
  • Notes (Diving) : Remember, this is arguably most complicated thing you must do to drive your submarine aside from going back up. Pay attention to you driving
  • Increase Speed - This is to increase your speed.
    Right click the control sword to go from Stop/Slow/half-speed/full/flank.
  • Notes (Speed): Speed can mean life or death for a ship. Torpedoes can be dodged, bombs missed from hitting your vehicle. However, you can miss hitting due to sheer speed.

One right click will slide your vehicle to the left or right at angle without changing facing of the ship. If you right more than once in any direction, you will completely turn the vehicles.
  • Notes (Turing/Steering): Changing direction can cause anyone using weapons to loose their targets or worse cause them to miss while firing. Its good idea to announce on /crew or plain tell them your changing course and turning the ship. It is important you have a Periscope in order to better navigate the submarine to better drive it.
  • Stopping a Submarine
    When a player control the ship wants to stop. They must be using the Control Sword and face away from the Vehicle sign and right click it. This will click down the speed until stop. This is necessary if players wants to slow down to fight someone, or launch a mini-vehicle.

  • Notes (Diving) : Remember, this is arguably most complicated thing you must do to drive your submarine aside from going back up. Pay attention to you driving


Tanks

Tanks using navycraft are straight forward vehicles to operate. They work similarly to Ships, while using different speed settings.

  • Start Vehicle
