How To: Create the Fastest, Most Efficient Way of Travel - 50 Blocks a Second

Create the Fastest, Most Efficient Way of Travel - 50 Blocks a Second

Many Minecrafters think that Minecart Traveling with many rails is the fastest (most efficient) way of travel. They are wrong. There is one other way of traveling with carts on rails, Forward, Backward, and Upward. And it can take you places up to 6X Faster than the traditional Minecart Design, and, its just as simple to make.


  • Same number of Minecarts as rails
  • Any amount of any building block (Recommend Dirt)

How to Build It:

Simply Follow the order as shown in the picture. Now you have your first piece! Read on to figure out where to place them.

Do This, if Your Using a Computer for Minecraft:

Thats all you have to do! Then get into the first Minecart, then right click to get into the next one. Click as fast as you can, and you will be speeding in no Time!

Do This, if Your Using an Xbox 360 Edition for Minecraft:

Same idea as the computer version, except you can't travel as far from one Minecart to the next as you can in the Computer one. I have found out from experience.

So, What Is the Speed of This Traveling Trick?

Well, I put down 60 Minecarts (355 Blocks Long). And it took me about 7 seconds to go through all of them. So were talking about Top-Speeds of around traveling 50 Blocks a Second. But if you just hold your right clicker down the whole time you will go about 2X or 3X faster than regular Minecart Rails.

Clever, Kurt! Do you know if this is compatible with 1.3? Because I know they changed the getting-out-of-carts mechanics. =)

I'm sorry, but I have No idea what it does in 1.3, because for some reason my updater stopped working, but i'l fix it :)

I was testing some options for optimizing frame rates with the client and ended up disabling it (because I got better capture software that made it moot), but noticed that it left the binary (.jar) in an altered state (uncompressed). I restored (always keep a backup zip) and was able to update (as well as de-update). If you've got a vanilla binary archived, use that before updating and the updater should work.

Thanks Montgo! It works!
