Improved Minecart Add-on

This addon adds an improved minecart to Minecraft. The three main functionalities include an arrow shooter, a chest for storing items and a seat for one player. It is a great cart to use for your adventures on rails since it will automatically shoot down hostiles which get too close and provide enough storage space to make sure you never have to leave anything left behind.

How does it work?

The chicken is replaced by an improved minecart. It can be placed down on rails and it has the capability to hold one player, a cannon and storage container. You can hold an iron sword to control the direction of the cart.

The improved minecart is mounted with a cannon which will start firing arrows as soon as a hostile mob is detected.

On the back of the cart there is a chest (27 slots) which includes enough space to make most of your trips much more convenient as you can bring lots of stuff with you.

  • iOS / Android: Sneak, long press the cart and press Open to open it
  • Windows 10: Sneak and right-click the cart to open it

You can also open the normal inventory while seated on the minecart to access the chest.

the add on it's self is great and well made, so maybe you could make an add on that makes the minecarts look like train cars and be leashable. the normal minecart being a passenger car, the chest in minecart would be a box car, a hopper in mine cart would be a hopper car, and the tnt minecart would be tnt on a flat bed
Hey, could you make this replace the chest minecart? It'll be much better for my survival world because I don't want to replace Eggward the chicken in my pen. If so, i'll use it on my survival world and i'll be thankful if so. I could use it for something else.

Thanks, Sam. ;)
Page to load the download link is taking 50 quadrillion centuries.

It's a great addon, but it'd be better if it replaced minecarts, or chest minecarts.

This Addon Is Cool an all, but...
Ok, I think it's time someone said this:
When I saw this addon, I was excited to try it in my survival world...UNTIL I saw it replaced chickens, a vital mob in the game -_- . If I installed this don To my world, I would have the minecart...but at the cost of my egg farm, not to mention the constant spawning of minecarts around my world! I'm sick of addon creators using important mobs when creating Addons! It ruins the purpose if your going to replace mobs that players need! If your going to make an addon, at least use a mob that's not needed, like the silverfish, or the; I don't know, THE FREAKING USELESS ENDERMITE, GOSH DANGIT! I sick of addon creators making addons that replace important mobs and are therefor useless in survival mode!

sorry, just felt that I had to get that off my chest...
Not to bad, although it glitches and anything I put in the chest disappeared, then it would (somehow) throw me about 50 blocks into the air whenever I got out of the cart, that's not good on survival, I tried to delete it, then re-download it, but the same thing happens on every world I had it on... It is good, but the glitch is what sucks, hope you can fix it...?
Can mobs still get in because I have lost soooo many minecarts to villagers creepers zombies etc etc
