Controlling the Ship[edit]

The ship is controlled by using the movement keys in Minecraft. Holding forward will accelerate the ship forward, or apply brakes if the ship is moving backward. Holding backward will do the opposite. To turn, simply hold the left and right movement keys. Please note that ship steering is completely independent of the direction the player is facing. The align key (the = key by default) will immediately rotate the ship so it is facing one of the four cardinal directions. This will not cancel any momentum the ship has. For flying ships (those with more than 40% of their blocks being Air Balloon blocks), use the ascend and descend keys to change altitude. These keys can be configured in the Minecraft Controls Options.
