Elytra Steamer is a Minecraft datapack that increases your Elytra. Three new propulsion modes are available: jetpack, submarine and aircraft.
Elytra Steamer craft
To craft your engine, you need an Elytra, a Lava Bucket and and a Blast Furnace.
Throw those 3 items on a crafting table, and your Elytra will be transformed into a powerfull Steamer!
When your Elytra is equipped, if you look at your feet (below) you will have access to the display of power and fuel. Useful to know your fuel reserves without turning on the engine!
Turn on/off the engine
To turn on the engine: look at your feet and sneak (crouch) until the engine turns on. You will hear the engine start and smoke is produced.
To turn off the engine: let the engine cool down, then look above you (perfectly up) and sneak (crouch) once.
Once started, stay pressed on sneak button to use the throttle, and thus increase the power of the engine.
The jetpack allows air travel on the vertical axis.
Use the sneak key to gain speed. You can also break a fall by accelerating at the right moment.
The underwater propulsion allows water travel on the horizontal axis.
Use the sneak key to accelerate. In order not to sink, you must also press the jump key. You can then direct your gaze to the water.
Airplane propulsion allows air travel on the horizontal axis.
Use the sneak key to gain speed. Watch out for the walls!
Your fuel reserve is entirely configurable (see options) : quantity, consumption, regeneration… Enjoy yourself, we are not here to save money!
The best way to regen your fuel is to create a Gas Station.
You can create a gas station yourself, anywhere! You will need a Coal Block, a Lava Bucket and a Dispenser!
Drop the 3 items on the block where you want to create the station.
The little extras
Warning: if you reach maximum power while still on the ground, the charred ground may catch fire.
If you put a throttle in flight when you are already close to the maximum power (>80%), the steamer implodes and accelerates brutally. Very stylish, however, this consumes a significant amount of fuel…
