Zipline – bridges, ropes and sheets galore!


If you’re familiar with Zipline, you know that it’s original creator, binarydoodler, has not updated it since 1.7.3. However, mod updating legend Coupon has come to the rescue and updated it for 1.0. with the help of aSakofDonuts.
It’s a great mod that introduces a lot of things that really should be in vanilla Minecraft, among which are ropes, ziplines, rope bridges and etc.

First off, let’s take a look at the ropes. Ropes are crafted with 2 string, and can be placed on any block, or attached to any existing rope to make it longer, meaning you can place a rope in the middle of a hanging rope to make it longer, instead of having to always click the bottom end.

They are climbable, and have a complex physics system that is accompanied by a nice wobble effect. You can craft ropes and arrows together to create the obviously named “Arrow with Rope” which can be fired from a normal bow and leaves a rope trail behind and connects to the block it hits. It’s a great idea implemented pretty poorly – it connects where it shouldn’t, can glitch out, and is all-around useless.


You can craft a handlebar, which you right click with on the rope to zipline. It’s a cool and useful feature.
Then we have the rope bridges. Traversing between mountains in Minecraft is often very tedious due to you either having to climb down and back up, make ugly dirt bridges, or put in a lot of work to build a good looking bridge using fences, plates and iron bars.
You craft them with ropes and planks, so they are cheap, but they are very useful, and look nice connecting mountains. They are, in my opinion, the best feature of the pack, even though the ropes are more useful.
With this mod, you can also craft sheets using wool, which have the same physics as the ropes, and can be used to create tents and similar stuff. It’s not the most complicated edition, but it does come in handy for decoration.

You can also place leather. Another purely decorative feature, but a welcome addition to the mod nonetheless. And that is it. Even though this mod may not be a very feature rich package, it manages to improve your Minecraft experience significantly, without being too confusing. You can download it here.

  9. ruzakai says:

  10. josh says:

    i cant get the mod to work in minecraft after having the file downloaded and in use! please help!!

  11. AngryGuy says:

    This is what happens when try to mod… I did everything you told me to, but when I run the game, instead of the mojang symbol, there is just a black screen.


    • ADiamondFate says:

      Trust me, when I first started the whole mod system, I had the black screen a lot, because I didn’t understand, but, now I know, and I am going to share what I know, with you:
      (You may have to re-intall the mod, just in case)
      Anyways, once you are into your minecraft.jar (It may not say .jar I know) you need to find a file named META-INF, and delete all of the files inside and the folder itself.
      After you have completely re-installed, AND deleted META-INF, close those windows, and run minecraft and enjoy! :)

  12. NEWCOMER3 says:

  14. andrew says:

  15. david9dkb says:

    For some resin the whin i shot the “arrow with rope” will only extend 9 blocks from where the arrow landed. Why is this happening? and how can i fix?

  16. Velaroz says:

    The only thing I don’t see here that’d be nice to know… How to craft handlebar?

  17. daniel says:

    WHERES THE LINK!?!?!??!?!?!!!!?/!/1!?!?!?!?!!?!?

  18. modderMiner says:

    I mod Minecraft with MCPatcher, and when I do the mod, the items don’t show up.

  19. Daan says:

    Uuhm I did every thing u said, and I’m not new to installing mods… But it doesn’t work? Could i be the problem i already have other mods in it?

  20. Tardersauce says:

    Heyy!! I absolutely love this mod!! I’m guessing it would be a lot to ask for bukkit support? I would definetly put this on my multiplayer server. Just a thought. :) Awesome mod! Good Luck!

  21. Steve says:

    just wondering if this mod works on a multiplayer server and i know theres questions all over but if it does how on earth do i get it working

    • LittleDinamit says:

      There isn’t a multiplayer version updated for 1.1 yet, but keep checking back the linked page. Once it is updated, there will be instructions there.

  22. Tatti says:

    Update to 1.1 sometime! =D

  23. Modguy says:

    Is there any way to make it compatible with risugami’s arrow mod?

  24. miner dude says:

    i dont not have the file .minecraft.jar how do i get

    • LittleDinamit says:

      If you don’t have the minecraft.jar file, you don’t have Minecraft. Install Minecraft and then find it in the .minecraft folder in AppData.

  25. kase says:

    there needs to be a ninja mod

  26. LittleDinamit says:

    There is, it’s called the Aether mod and it’s really awesome and Mod of the year according to you guys, our readers! Check it out here:

  27. LittleDinamit says:

    The SMP version is not yet supported by the modder updating the mod. Sorry. :/

  28. crafty guy says:

    looks great, but the only problem is requirement for modloader. modloader doesn’t work for no matter what link i use so i can’t use this mod or many others and this frustrates me a lot.

  29. Bob the Creeper says:

    Where is the download page?

  30. minecrafter says:

    so cool mod i made advendser map out of it

  31. asianboy96 says:

    any updates for 1.2.3??

  32. Jake says:

    IS there multiplayer support

    • LittleDinamit says:

      Not at the moment. Minecraft is being updated almost weekly and modders are having problems keeping up. Wait for a couple of weeks, a build will probably be out.

  33. idkaname says:
