Cars in Minecraft - for dummies

The kids asked me to install a car mod on their Minecraft server. Now, I suck at Minecraft server administration (probably because I don't like or play the game myself), so here are some notes in case I need to reinstall this later.

  1. The server needs to run CraftBukkit for this to work. In the server’s controlpanel I switched the Minecraft version to CraftBukkit 1.6.2-R1.0. (On another server I tried the same method with CraftBukkit 1.6.2-R0.1 and it worked there too. Not sure if earlier versions are supported.)
  2. Install dependencies:
  3. Install uCars
  4. Restart the server
  5. At the server console, give permissions to the users who should be able to use it:
    /pex user add ucars.*

The users should now be able to place a minecart, enter it, and drive around in it using the same keys used for riding a horse.
