Travel quickly and easily with minecarts!

EasyCarts is a Bukkit/Spigot plugin for Minecraft Servers that enables hassle-free and reliable
transportation for Minecarts with players in them.
This plugin has been tested with Spigot 1.8, but it should work on older Bukkit versions as well.

Important note: In order for intersections to work correctly, they must be built with straight rails only (like a +). Building them with a curve in the center will disable minecarts from stopping at intersections. T-Intersections work as well.

Intersections that work with EasyCarts.

No special blocks are needed to stop the cart at intersections though.

EasyCarts doesn’t affect Carts with Chests, Furnaces, Hoppers TNT or mobs in them.

Hint: EasyCarts has no slowdown blocks. If you want to slow down your cart on a certain part of the track and then boost it again, build the following rails:
Rails setup that slows down the cart.


All speed values can be changed in the config.yml.

  • Minecarts will stop at intersections. Continue simply by looking in the desired direction and pressing forward.
  • Minecarts will automatically slow down before curves or slopes to avoid derailing or crashing into upward slope block. Carts speed up again after curve or slope.
  • Players can ride the minecart faster even without booster blocks.
  • Increases maximum speed of minecarts.
  • Powered Rails can boost the minecart more.
  • Ops can change the speed values via commands.
  • Minecarts will push entities on a collision course out of the way to avoid collision.


  • /easycarts reload: Reloads the settings from config.yml to memory. Useful for testing values ingame on a server.
  • /easycarts push: Sets the value of MaxPushSpeedPercent in config.yml and saves config.
  • /easycarts boost: Sets the value of PoweredRailBoostPercent in config.yml and saves config.
  • /easycarts maxspeed: Sets the value of MaxPushSpeedPercent in config.yml and saves config.
  • /easycarts slowwhenempty: Toggles the value of SlowWhenEmpty in config.yml and saves config.

Refer to config.yml comments for more infos on the parameters.


easycarts.admin: Enables execution of the above commands. Granted to OPs by default.

Known caveats:

  • Carts will derail after start if spawned directly on a curve.
  • Carts will only stop at intersections with flat rails. Curves or slopes intersections were not implemented on purpose.

I highly recommend installing CraftBook and enabling the MinecartTemporaryCart feature. This allows you to right click a rail with an empty hand to instantly spawn a minecart. Just make sure to set RemoveMinecartOnExit: true in config.yml to correctly remove carts when doing so.

Have fun with the plugin!
