So, after logging a few hundred hours flying aircraft and driving vehicles with Flan's mod, and after a year or so of building roads and airports and whatnot to support those things, and after having made a content pack of my own with over 100 vehicles and planes (to be released as soon as we're done bug-testing it, of course), I figured I would put together my ultimate "wish list" of features I would love to see added someday. Things I believe would make Flan's better all-around. To see this stuff get added into Flan's, Flan's Plus, and/ or Flan's Minus would be amazing, and I think/ hope others would dig these ideas as well. I know my friends on my server would love the heck out of them!

I'm going to collapse each idea into a spoiler to conserve space. We all know how I can get a little long-winded lol. The headline bit will tell you what you really need to know. The stuff in the spoilers is just me detailing that idea further or explaining how it might/ could work. Anyhoo, the ideas!

Idea #1 - PROPER airplane taxi controls/ pushback

Idea #2 - Engine Durability/ Maintenance/ Coolant/ Oil

Idea #3 - Improved R-key UI and cargo tabs
Warning: Spoiler! [ Click to expand ]


Idea #4 - Plane Gliding Feature
Warning: Spoiler! [ Click to expand ]


Idea #5 - Passenger cargo and cargo access points
Warning: Spoiler! [ Click to expand ]


Idea #6 - Car Horns/ Sirens
Warning: Spoiler! [ Click to expand ]


Idea #7 - The Need For (Improved) Speed
Warning: Spoiler! [ Click to expand ]


Idea #8 - Liquid storage/ dispersal
Warning: Spoiler! [ Click to expand ]


Idea #9 - Car stereos
Warning: Spoiler! [ Click to expand ]


Idea #10 - Configurable locking doors/ trunks
Warning: Spoiler! [ Click to expand ]


Idea #11 - Co-Pilots!
Warning: Spoiler! [ Click to expand ]


Idea #12 - Autopilot Feature
Warning: Spoiler! [ Click to expand ]


Idea #13 - Trailers & Hitches and Towing
Warning: Spoiler! [ Click to expand ]


Idea #14 - Tool potion effects
Warning: Spoiler! [ Click to expand ]


Idea #15 - Hard Hitboxes
Warning: Spoiler! [ Click to expand ]


Anyway, those are my ideas for Flan's Mod/ Flan's Plus/ Flan's Minus/ Flan's Squared/ Flan's Times/ every other version of flan's that comes along :D I hope others agree that at least some of these ideas would be cool to see added someday, sooner or later or ten years from now.

Ok. Quick responses.

1. Yes, actually working on this already, seems to be mostly done.

2. No. Overcomplicates gameplay and will annoy more people than it satisfies. There's a proper flight sim mod out there for this (I forgot the name).

3. I could go for a % fuel guage on the in-flight GUI. Remind me to have a go. No clue what you want with cargo unfortunately.

4. Also working on this. Trying to improve the flight model, so gliding may or may not be made possible as a consequence.

5. Useful idea, but going to be a pain in the ass to implement. Don't count on seeing this in any reasonable timeframe.

6. Funnily enough you can do this by giving the vehicle a gun that doesn't fire any bullets, but does make a sound. Though a proper function for this may be handy.

7. I do want to do something about this one. The problem is how to do it without breaking existing content. But I'm sure there's a solution.

8. no

9. Music disks no. However I'd be keen on implementing something like those mods where you put a .mp3 link in a stereo block and it actually plays the song. Unfortunately I have no idea how you do this.

10. Fex already got this working on his 1.10+ build. I sort of have it working on mine. It'll happen eventually.

11. Sounds nifty but I doubt it's usefulness.

12. Might actually give this a go, currently re-writing the flight controller so there may be room for some form of autopilot function.

13. Would be neat, but little mechanical benefit. If I figure out a cheap way to do it then maybe, but I'm not going to prioritize this.

14. Wait we can't do this already?

15. Oh my sweet summer child.





You have no idea how much sanity I've lost to this last one.

On idea 13: I think this was a brief feature back in 1.6.4. Flan and I have talked about this before, you could tow planes around airbases and aircraft carriers. It would make things a lot easier organizing the planes when not in use.

I LOVE that you're doing Taxiing! I've been wanting that for a long time, can't wait to see it implemented! Everything else on the list was wishful thinking so if it ever gets added that's great, but if it doesn't get added anytime soon I'd understand, totally.

As for cargo, I'm not even really sure how that should work TBH. The current system has us clicking to scroll by each tab, which isn't a big deal until you get into the big (75+ slot) cargo vehicles/ planes. At that point it feels like you're clicking for an eternity. A faster scroll, or maybe tabbed out cargo "pages" might be more efficient, but again, this only impacts the small number of us who use Flan's mod for shipping cargo around so it's not really a priority issue, more of an idea pretty much. The taxi/ pushback feature is the one I've wanted the most, so to know it's being worked on and almost done has me giddy :D

I love the idea of vehicles being able to play Music Discs, i like that a lot better than playing custom online mp3s. Its a lot more minecrafty.

Speaking of Music Discs, Flans Mod should support custom music discs. It has custom items, it has custom sounds - why not be able to make items that play custom sounds?
It'd be great. If this were implemented, there would be no need for the online streaming thing, as players could make custom Discs as part of their content pack.
