About Zora no Densha
Zora no Densha is a Minecraft train mod project started in late 2014. This mod adds realistic trains which can be greatly customised. Additionally, players who have knowledge about programming in Java can write their own add-ons and implement their own vehicle parts / trains using the in-built Vehicle Parts API.
Fully customisable trains
Zora no Densha allows you to create your own trains in the Engineer's Table. You can choose to either build or change a premade vehicle (so-called "Presets"), or start off fresh and create your own trains. Once you're set, a model can be turned into a blueprint. Then, the blueprint can be placed on maintenance tracks to spawn a guide model. Craft and apply all vehicle parts, and you're good to go.
Many vehicle parts have special properties, such as colorisation, animation, interaction, and many more. Most properties can be configured in the Model Editor.
For those who colorise their vehicle parts, here's a website that lists RGB color percentages for a huge number of colors: -Click me-
You can also share your Presets with the world! Simply click the "Export as File" button in the Engineer's Table GUI, and grab your Preset file from your mods/Zora no Densha/ folder.
If you still feel like there's not enough to work with, you can always create your own custom vehicle parts and implement these into the game using the Zora no Densha Vehicle Part API. Please note that this requires some basic modding knowledge. (Soon to change with the new XML parts API. More information in the future.)
