As most of you may know, Minecraft has recently had a mod developed for it that allows users to physically fly via an Airplane that users must individually craft. It’s been featured on the Yogscast and has become so popular that Flan, the mods developer, has given most of his attention to keeping it up to date.

Up until just recently, I haven’t been to interested in trying the Plane Mod for Minecraft 1.6.2. I was under the impression that a Planes mod for Minecraft 1.6.2 would alter the gameplay in such a way that would greatly destroy the creative-style chemistry of Minecraft. However, after several hours of constructing planes and exploring my world in a new way, I have drastically reconsidered the Planes mod.

Installing the Mod is fairly simple. I have outlined a few simple steps below.

  1. Download and install ModLoader which can be located here (just copy the files into Minecraft.jar).
  2. Once Modloader is installed download the Planes v15 via this link.
  3. Copy the contents of Planesv15.rar into your Minecraft.jar file.
  4. Enjoy the Minecraft Planes mod!

That’s really all that’s involved.

It’s obvious once you install and start using the Minecraft Plane mod that a fair amount of work has been put into get it working. I’m honestly amazed and in awe at this mod. A HUGE amount of thought must have been put into assembling the formulas for all the parts as well as designing every little aspect. This mod is extremely elaborate without altering the  overall Minecraft experience too dramatically.

Personally, I found it to be very exciting to fly around my map in a plane, provided I built it first. And to be completely honest, I was never able to completely memorize the formulas involved in every part (I recommend you refer back to the original thread in which it was posted).

Overall, the Minecraft plane mod is worth while and I suggest you try it out. You may even like to try it on a multiplayer server!
