Q&A

What is this?
It's a bike.

Why does it go in the inventory booster slot?
It's too large to fit into your inventory.

Can you place it?
Yes! It's ground-storable!

How fast is it?
It will add 100% to your player speed.

How do I use the bike?
Hold control to select it in your hotbar.

The model sucks.
I agree, make a better one please.

Couldn't you technically add inventory slots to the bike?
Actually, yes! I wanted to add slots but didn't feel like modelling a basket on it.

If the bike had inventory slots would it keep them when ground-placed?
Yeah it would, in fact, all inventory boosters can be ground-placed!

Can you fly with it?
Only if you take E.T. with you.

But bikes weren't invented unti-
There were bikes in the stone age.

What..? No, the first bike was-
Would Hannah Barbera lie? Flintstones. Look it up.

What's the crafting recipe?
Just four copper ingots in a half-life logo.

Why is it so cheap to craft?
Do you want it to be expensive??

Seperate tiers of bike?
Maybe later?? :D

Nobody asked these questions, did they?
No, nobody ever does. That's the secret.

Can you do wheelies?
Wheelies haven't been invented yet.

How about adding a light to it?
That's a cool idea. Might add that in the next update.

Could you add a motorcycle?
Maybe, but it would cost some sort of fuel.

What's this new Deluxe bike?
It's like a regular bike it's twice as fast.

Why is it clockmaker exclusive?!
They're the only ones to think of using a drive chain

Okay what about other classes or what if I can't get steel?
You can buy a gold bike from Luxuries traders for 50 gears.

That's REALLY expensive!
And to think, it's selling for a loss.

Is it any better than the Deluxe bike?
Not at all, but it does make for a pretty nice flex.

These are just recolored normal bikes.
I know :(

Why don't the better bikes have inventories?
Because of a glitch that allows empty bikes to go in inventories.

Could I add my own bike?/I don't like the values. Please add a config :(
You can make any block/item a bike with the "biketopspeed" attribute in JSON.

💬 Chocoboo, 1 day ago

Ran a server with about nine other folks with this mod. After coming to grips with it, I cannot fathom playing the game ever again without this robust tool in hand. 10/10 would bike again.

💬 OmegaHaxors, Nov 5th at 4:58 AM

Well I didn't end up doing that. What I did end up doing was defining bike bonuses in JSON.
Now instead of relying on a hard-coded method, it just checks for the existance of the "biketopspeed" attribute tag.
This also means that non-coders can adjust the balance of the existing bikes or add their own simply through a single JSON tag.

💬 OmegaHaxors, Nov 5th at 2:29 AM

Considering nerfing the bike to slow you down (by 20%) while worn but not selected, and only apply the full speed bonus while you are being boosted by a path.
You would only get a small speed increase (10% and 20%) while riding on non-path/paver surfaces. Still faster than running but not just a free massive speed bonus.

The current implimentation makes exploring new areas too easy and the speed bonus is a bit too high in hilly terrain where it's more annoying to deal with speed.

This mod is actually *why* I made lantern. The tiny light range made it hard to travel at any reasonable speed without bumping into things.
My design philosophy is to act boldly and cause problems, and then come up with creative solution to those problems. It leads to the most interesting development.

💬 l33tmaan, Oct 11th at 5:12 AM

OMG, now I CAN add lantern to bike?

💬 OmegaHaxors, Oct 11th at 4:08 AM

Luxury/Deluxe bikes will now produce light at range if lantern is installed.

Sabanur
I know

💬 Sabanur, Oct 1st at 1:36 PM

sry man but that's most useless mod ever... it looks like.... hell =(

💬 chippit, Oct 1st at 5:21 AM

Finally, something to spend all my worthless gears on other than filling my stone huts with chandeliers. 

 

Seriously tho, great mod.

💬 OmegaHaxors, Oct 1st at 3:42 AM

I find that jumping is a little too powerful and going up blocks is annoying.
If I ever decide to redo this I would give bikes auto-step and disable/nerf jumping.
Would also give it some time to get on/get off so you can't use it to chase down animals.

💬 YourCreator, Sep 28th at 12:43 PM

fcking crazy man!

💬 OmegaHaxors, Sep 28th at 8:31 AM

new update adds two new bikes.

Deluxe Bike: It contains a light and goes really fast. Made of steel and can only be made by the Clockmaker.
Luxury Bike: Gaudy and tasteless. It's a deluxe bike which you can buy from a Luxuries trader for 50 gears.

💬 MrBadWithNames, Sep 27th at 1:53 PM

Weird mechanics but props for putting this together!

Also like the other guy in the comments said, 10/10 for description!

💬 Zinc, Sep 27th at 10:43 AM

10 out of 10 just for the description! lol
