The Zeppelin is a slow and fragile transport and supply aircraft, mainly used as a personnel carrier that can hold a small amount of storage.
It is also one of the ships able to launch combat aircraft (the other is the Aircraft Carrier); Bombers and Fighters can only move within a 400 block radius of a piloted, friendly Zeppelin, that is located in Wilderness.
Like other transport crafts, the Zeppelin can quickly load and unload items using the cargo commands.

To pilot a Zeppelin, you may use the command
/pilot Zeppelin while standing on an eligible Zeppelin. Alternatively, you may right click a sign on the craft that has
Zeppelin written on the first line.
Piloting a Zeppelin increases your render distance to 10 chunks maximum, until you release the craft.
The Zeppelin can fly no higher than 100 blocks above ground.
This craft is fueled by Coal, Charcoal, Blocks of Coal, and Blocks of Charcoal placed inside an on-board Furnace.
