Lava Boats Mod – Travel across lakes of lava with ease thanks to this mod!
Ever wish you could roam the nether in a more practical way? You know, a faster way to get from point a to point b? Unfortunately, there has always been an ocean of lava in the way of you being able to do that. What’s even more saddening, is that the ocean of lava usually has a ton of glowstone hovering on top of it, and is usually fortified with a ceiling of netherrack, preventing ghasts from even being able to detect you.
Well, thanks to this mod, you can now take advantage of that ocean of lava, and also roam the nether with speed and style! The lava boat mod is a mod for Minecraft that makes it so you are allowed to place minecarts in lava. However, due to the recent Minecraft updates,youcan’t directly place the minecart into the lava, you will have to push the minecart into the lava lake somehow. The easiest way to do this would be to place a single minecart rail next to and facing the lava, place the minecart, and push the minecart into the lava.
Anyways, you will notice that the minecart actually stayed afloat, and did not sink into the depths right away. From here, all you have to do is right click into the minecart, and there you have it, a lava boat. Driving the lava boat is the same as driving a normal boat.
You may be wondering “well, if I hop out, I will fall into the lava!” This mod thought ahead, and gives you a 5 seconds immunity to the lava the second you hop out of the minecart. This is pretty fair in my opinion. Don’t believe any of this? Check out the screenshots and videos below.
