A Destroyer being “printed” by a Shipyard.
The Shipyard is a special structure in Movecraft used for automatically building ("printing") crafts and structures. They are immovable crafts that can contain all blocks that are used on other crafts.
They are used to replicate crafts and buildings, and for transferring builds from the Creative server (
/server movecraft) to Nations and Towny.
Minimum block size of 75
Maximum block size of 15,000 (30,000 on the Creative server)
¶ Repair Signs and Shipyards
are what allow Shipyards to build structures. Repair signs
Suppose you have a structure and want to copy it.
First, we pilot the structure as a Shipyard.
Then we use a Repair sign to save the Shipyard to a
Repair State (think of this as saving a blueprint). Afterwards, you can use the Repair sign to transform any Shipyard to the Repair State.
Place a Repair sign on the ship.
On the first line of the sign, write
On the second line of the sign, write the name of the Repair State. This can be anything - for example,
Pilot the ship as a Shipyard.
Left-click the Repair sign to save the Shipyard to the Repair State. Go to where you want the ship to be copied. Place a Repair sign that is identical to the one you made in Step 1.
Pilot the Repair sign as part of a Shipyard.
Right-click the Repair sign to load the Repair State.
The Repair sign will compare the Shipyard to the Repair State and calculate what blocks are needed to transform the Shipyard into the Repair State.
The Repair sign will ask for materials needed to build the Repair State, along with some money.
The materials are taken from chests on the Shipyard.
The Shipyard will charge
$0.3 per block needing to be placed. This is taken from your balance. Once these are supplied, right-click the Repair sign again to begin generating the Repair State. The materials and money needed will then be taken from the chests and your balance.
Blocks are placed at a rate of 2 blocks per second.
The orientation and position of the Repair sign matters.
Orientation: Suppose the ship was in front of the Repair sign when it was saved. If you change the direction of the Repair sign, it will still build the ship in front of the sign.
Position: Suppose the ship was 20 blocks beneath the Repair sign when it was saved. The Repair sign will always build the ship 20 blocks beneath it.
. Don't generate crafts in your storage room, your chests will be overwritten! Repair signs will replace existing blocks in the way of repairs
When right-clicked, Repair signs will show you a preview of their saved structure to help you avoid these problems.
Printed too high or low? Try piloting your craft as an Elevator, then move it.
Repair states are shared between Nations and the Movecraft Creative server (
/server movecraft). This means you can build and save a structure on the Creative server and generate it on Nations.
If you made a mistake and a ship is now being built in the middle of your town, simply type
/cancelrepairs to cancel the repair.
This will not refund you the money or materials that were taken to begin the repair.
When printing colourable blocks, Shipyards will only ask for their uncoloured counterpart. This simplifies the resource-gathering process.
Coloured Glazed Terracotta
Stained Glass Panes
Shipyards can use any block used on crafts. For a complete list, please consult /craftblocks Shipyard in-game.
