About Traincraft

The mod, the legend

What is Traincraft?

Traincraft is a minecraft mod that adds more than 80 trains, wagons, and other moving vehicles to the game as well as many crafting blocks and machines.

History of the mod

Traincraft first came out on april 2011. At that time the mod was named Train and Zeppelin mod and only had one «steam» locomotive and one cart. The locomotive had no GUI and you couldn’t attach the cart to the locomotive.

The idea was to have a controllable powered minecart in which you could sit. The mod got so much support that it was decided to continue the adventure and add many more locomotives and carts.

Many new models

Lots of new models were added

 

On April 2012 a hugely requested feature was finally implemented: the first (very bugged!) coupling system. Here is a video showing it in action:

And then custom GUI appeared, new models, the coupling system was reworked and the first mod promotion video was made!

Then Minecraft 1.3.2 came out and everything broke down and the mod was more or less abandoned until Mrbrutal came to help and put the mod back on track fixing tons of stuff!

Two years and a renaming later, the mod received its biggest (and hardest to code) improvements: curved tracks, switches and slopes!
