How to build a car in Minecraft

How to build a car in Minecraft: There are several ways to get from one place to another in Minecraft, but none of them involve the use of vehicles, such as cars. Although you have not personally found a solution to this inconvenience, you have decided not to lose heart and to find a way to recreate a vehicle on this video game. I like your fighting spirit… so I’ll help you!

In today’s guide, I’ll show you how to build a car in Minecraft so that you can explore even the most distant places in your vehicle. Since, however, Minecraft does not allow you to build this kind of tools directly in the game, I will recommend some mods that can be useful for this purpose. In addition, I will show you other alternative means of transport that you can make use of without resorting to the use of mods.

Are you curious to discover the tips I have prepared for you in this guide of mine, aren’t you? So what are you waiting for? Sit down comfortably, just take a few minutes of free time and dedicate yourself to reading this tutorial of mine. I am sure you will easily succeed in your intent. All that remains for me is to wish you a good read and, above all, a good time!

Preliminary operations

In the basic version of Minecraft, it is not possible to build functioning cars. A type of means of transport that can be used is the one that has an engine consisting of blocks of slime, whose operating principle is already described in this previous guide of mine.

Since this means of transport is not comparable to a car, as it only proceeds in two directions on the same straight line, I can help you by recommending some mods that allow you to build vehicles of any type to be used for exploring the world of Minecraft.

The solutions that I will tell you about in the next chapters require the installation of Minecraft Forge, a free tool for managing mods in Minecraft. To install Minecraft Forge, go to its official website and hit the  Windows Installer button to download the latest .exe file. If you need to download Minecraft Forge for older Minecraft versions, you can use the left side menu.

After downloading the file, double-click on it and, in the box that is shown to you, click OK to install. At this point, you just have to go to the path C: \ Users \ [name] \ AppData \ Roaming \ .minecraft through the Windows File Explorer and open the mods folder. If you don’t find it, create it manually.

Inside the mods folder, place the JAR files of the mods that you will download from those recommended in the following chapters. After doing this, you need to start Minecraft and press the icon with the symbol (▲) located next to the Play button.

Then choose the Forge profile and click Play. You will notice if the mod has actually been installed if you find it among the items in the list accessible via the Mod button, on the main screen of the game

Mod to build a car

At this point you can take action and choose a mod that allows the construction of machines to be used in the world of Minecraft: here are the ones that, in my humble opinion, are the best of the moment.

The Ultimate Car Mod

The Ultimate Car Mod is one of the most complete Minecraft mods, adding vehicles of different types to the game world. There are both one- and two-seater cars, as well as small trucks, including a trunk that can hold the collected resources.

The peculiarity of this mod is that it introduces a refueling system for means of transport, which does not allow them to reach long distances, as they need fuel. In this regard, the service stations and fuel production centers are present inside the mod. Also, if you want to mark a route, you can build roads with asphalt blocks which make it very realistic.

To make a car, you need a workbench to make all the different components of the vehicle. For example, to make a car seat, you need three cotton units and five wooden planks. Once you have all the necessary parts, you will need to create a workshop. This is achieved by placing a car workshop block and eight units of car workshop parts on a free 3 × 3 area.

Once this is done, interacting on the platform just made, you can insert all the different components to build the vehicle. In this regard, I recommend that you reach this link, where you can find details on the projects to create the components and vehicles themselves.

After filling the workshop slots with the parts needed to create the vehicle, press the Spawn car button to make it appear on the platform. The vehicle created will only have 10% fuel, so it will be necessary to reach a petrol station, which can be built by always referring to the link mentioned above. Furthermore, it is possible to refer to this other official guide made by the developer of the mod (in English), which explains how to create a fuel production plant.

The controls for using the vehicle are simple: interact on the car to get on and hold down the R button to start it. After turning on the vehicle, by pressing the I key, you can see the panel that shows you some parameters, such as the fuel level or the damage received.

SoggyMustache’s Transportation Mod

Another mod I recommend you use is SoggyMustache’s Transportation Mod, which adds some vehicles with both two and four wheels, as well as other bizarre means of transportation, such as the unicycle and the glass ball.

To use this mod, however, you will need two other components: Bookworm (for Minecraft 1.12.x or later) and Moons Core. The files downloaded in JAR format must be placed in the mods folder, together with the SoggyMustache’s Transportation Mod JAR file , downloadable from this link.

At this point, all that remains is to start Minecraft and discover the new vehicles added, which you can find in the inventory, in the Vehicles tab, of any map in Creative mode. Just put the vehicle icon to use in the quickbar and right click to place it on the ground.

After positioning the vehicle, interact on it to get inside and use the movement controls to use it. Unlike the mod I told you about in the previous chapter, the use of fuel is not required, thus being able to use the vehicle without limitations.

Other ways to get around quickly in Minecraft

In addition to the vehicles I told you about in the previous chapters, you can use other means to move freely in Minecraft. For example, you can use a horse to tackle your adventures and thus reach even the most distant places. In this regard, I recommend that you read my guide on how to tame a horse in Minecraft.

In addition, there are other means to reach a distant place: you can build a mining wagon on a rail, which connects one or more places of your interest, perhaps with an underground and well-lit tunnel, or you can use teleportation. Unfortunately the latter requires the use of the command console for long distances, which I told you about in this guide of mine in detail.

Finally, another method to quickly reach a distant place is to use the Elitre, a set of wings that allow the avatar to fly. The Elitre, in reality, only allows you to glide but, in combination with the pyrotechnic rockets, it is possible to gain altitude for long flight sessions. If you want to know more about this object and also about other methods to fly in Minecraft, I suggest you read my guide dedicated to this topic.
