As a member of the Dev Team, I'm looking at building the new Alice pack. Although we do have a new-ish 1.7 pack, it's a lot of the same.
So, my question is, would you guys be interested in something different for the new Alice pack? Not just more of the same, but something new!
Creating flying is back! ...but now on Vincent. Rather than the IC2 fuel jetpack, any pair of boots will work.
To activate creative flying, you must build a beacon made of pure diamond. Only one level is needed, but more levels will give you a larger radius of effect for the flying.
Sneak and right click the beacon to activate flying mode. Double tap your jump key to fly.
Your boots will degrade over time while you are suspended in the air. Iron and chainmail boots should last for approximately an hour (real life time), but leather and diamond boots will last for shorter and longer durations, respectively. You will be provided feather falling on the boots to reduce damage from falling should the effect wear off.
The east-west lime green Vincent rail has been extended to Bell Station by CrieNorec and I! It now connects both Aegis Station and Bell Station non-stop. After a stop at Aegis station, you can also transfer to the rail towards Edison Station, of which the length of the two lines is possibly ~8000 blocks.
