Magic Carpet  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 5.0
by: Cardinal05, Architectura
It is a chore to create scaffolding when you just want to build high up or get a better vantage point. Magic Carpet makes it easy to build anywhere in any home by giving you the power of flight. All that you need is Decorator permission and any of the many supported items or collectibles.

Take Off

While in a home, click the hovering Carpet button (see images) to choose a Magic Carpet flight mode. Use the left/right arrows to browse the available Magic Carpet modes or simply choose "Any Available Mode". Then click "Start".

If you have the required furniture items in your home, inventory or bank, Magic Carpet will automatically assemble your "carpet" - or, if not, just grab the required items shown for any of the modes and try again. There are a number of low cost options including a single "Rough Planks, Wide" item or a selection of the "High Elf" carpets that can be used to get started quickly.

Once your Magic Carpet is started, just jump in the air and move about. Your Magic Carpet will keep you afloat and allow you to quickly and easily get anywhere in your home - no building necessary.

Going Up or Down

Be sure to set up the three important key binds under Settings | Controls | General | Magic Carpet. Each key functions as a toggle...

Press Ascend once to tilt your Magic Carpet upwards so that walking, running, jumping or dodge rolling will move you upwards.
Press Ascend again to maintain your current altitude.

Press Descend once to tilt your Magic Carpet downwards so that walking, running, jumping or dodge rolling will move you downwards.
Press Descend again to maintain your current altitude.

Press Suspend once to freeze your Magic Carpet in its current position (be careful that you do not fall off while in Suspend mode).
Press Suspend again to reactivate your Magic Carpet.


When you are done flying, just click the hovering carpet button again and Magic Carpet automatically disassembles your items and restores them to wherever it found them in the home (or removes them if it placed them from your bank/inventory to begin with).

This release features an enormous overhaul of Magic Carpet internally and visually, including
a new framework that will leverage the upcoming Housing API and Item Linking feature,
dramatically improved performance and stability, a brand new User Interface and configuration
dialog, and a host of new features with literally tons of new Magic Carpets on their way in
the coming weeks.

As nearly all of the add-on's code has been rewritten and/or refactored, your Magic Carpet
settings have been reset to ensure compatibility with this update; however, your keybinds
configured under Controls should not be affected.

[ Features ]

- Dramatically simplified Magic Carpet set up for the dozens of new Magic Carpet Modes that
will be coming in the next several updates, including:

* 1-Button Magic Carpet start up.

* Automated assembly of your Magic Carpet or other mode of transportation using items directly
from your Bank, Inventory or from within your Home (within a configurable range from you).

* Automated disassembly of your Magic Carpet when you are finished with it, including automatic
removal of any items that were placed into the home as part of the Assembly process.

- A brand new User Interface has been designed and developed that gives you a much more intuitive
way of configuring and interacting with your Magic Carpet, including:

* A Magic Carpet selection carousel that allows you to scroll through the various new Magic Carpet
modes that are available now as well as literally dozens more that will be coming over the next
few weeks.

* New visual indicators identify which component(s) are required for your selected Magic Carpet Mode
as well as the quantity of those items that are available in your Bank, Inventory and within
range from you in the Home.

* A "Quick Access" button that will appear whenever you are in a House that you can fly in.
Look for the ethereal Yin and Yang symbol. It wants you to click it.

* Click-to-Adjust your Magic Carpet via the "Quick Access" button. Look for the Raise (Up)
and Lower (Down) arrows that will appear whenever your Magic Carpet is in-flight.

- A near-complete rewrite of the Magic Carpet engine has been done in order to prepare for
the new Housing API features that will be made possible with several new functions provided in
the Murkmire DLC, including:

* Insane new Magic Carpet modes that will include a range of new forms of transportation with
all manner of new vehicles and bizarre contraptions.

* New, game-changing modes that will range from Special Effects and Roleplay Modes that can link
to, alter and orbit your character in real-time to Combat Enhancements for Duels with things
like Magica-Technico suits and Fire- and Earth-Bending Abilities.

2018-08-03 v2.8.1

* Addressed additional scenarios that can cause an erroneous Hand of Geezus(tm) warning message when: teleporting to a different house, jumping via doors or portals or jumping to the "safe location" within a house.

2018-07-23 v2.8.0

* Adjusted velocity prediction to improve stability in higher latency scenarios.

* Added support for 3x [Ice Floe, Thin]

* Further calibrated the carpet animation logic to provide a more smooth experience and even fewer accidental drops, dips or descents.

2018-07-02 v2.4.0

* Added new Idle animations to simulate the effect of air (or water?) currents on your Magic Carpet. These animations can be enabled or disabled via the Settings.

* Adjusted how the Magic Carpet adapts to quick rotation to further minimize unwanted descending.

* Revised the signature The Hand of Geezus(tm) landing emote to something more devout.

2018-04-17 v2.0.1

* Wired Settings > Update Speed option to the underlying dynamic ascension, horizontal and free-fall calculations.

* Settings > Update Speed now dynamically increases ascension, horizontal and free-fall predictive coefficients to help compensate (within reason) to moderate latency conditions.

* Added support for several new "carpet" item types, including actual carpets (Altmer).

* Completely redesigned the controls:
- Gradual ascending can be performed through the new "Ascend" controls key bind.
- Gradual descending can be performed through the new "Descend" controls key bind.
- Ascension can still be performed through jumping.
- Removed prior CTRL/ALT/SHIFT/COMMAND controls.

* Completely redesigned core "flight" logic:
- Carpet updates are triggered by player movement relative to the current carpet position in lieu of the prior edge-to-edge placement strategy.
- Ascension, movement parallel to the ground and free-falling are now all variable calculations and can respond dynamically to changing latency conditions.

I LOVE this mod, but there are a few bugs

For some reason, toggling Keybind Reminder off doesn't seem to remove the messages about "Jump to fly", etc... every time I activate the addon. I still get the popup messages every single time I turn it on, even multiple times in one session.

Also, PanoramaView(tm) doesn't seem to work at all for me. A keybind to hide the vehicle would be fantastic.

A keybind for Featherfall(tm) would also be great, and the whole feature would be much better, IMHO, if it just activated the magic carpet before death, rather than teleporting the player to the entrance.

I'd also love a setting to remove the animated icon from the UI.

Those constructive critiques notwithstanding, I absolutely love the whole new dimension this addon gives the game!

Same here. It worked perfectly the first time I used it in the Hall of the Lunar Champions above the lake. I use the Clockwork Fan as my hoover board. It appeared on the floor with my feet sunken into it and by jumping I landed on top of it. I made key bindings and they worked. It is very difficult to estimate the water surface and once it is under water it won't go up any more and slaughterfish kill me.

The second time several hours later and it just won't hold me. It appears under my feet in the floor and it moves with me when I am jumping, but I can never land on top of it. And then it blames my latency for it, which was exactly the same as before.

Way to turn off moving icons?

Hi, I have sensory processing issues with animation and the moving icon for Magic Carpet (and the moving background) are a big issue. I love this addon and don't want to stop using it. Is there a way to include an option to DISABLE this movement?

Otherwise MC is staying off in my addon list

P.S. After turning off Magic Carpet (with moving icons) I realized that MC was why other addons weren't loading properly if I logged into that character while in a home. Please allow us to disable this "feature."

For whatever reason Ln111 in Engine.lua
Lua Code:
  1. local MESSAGE = "|acJump to begin flying...\n|r"
keeps printing
hacJump to begin flying...
to the system channel instead of what's actually in there.
Really weird.

carpet wont work in Pantherfang. I double checked and it still works in wraithhome like normal, so it has to be something in the app compatibility with the new house?

Noticing some issues. Although I haven't tested it in all my houses, in Stillwater Retreat the rustic carpet doesn't work and option to go directly up/down lo longer functioning. Not sure what the problem is as things seem to be working in Potentate's Retreat.

None the less, this add on has provided me with years of enjoyable home decorating, with results I couldn't have achieved without it. Thank you SO much

Magic Carpet has stopped working

First, thank you. I do love the addon. Sadly, it has stopped working for me. I've tried it in the Psijic Villa, Antiquarian home, and the Hunding's Palatial home.

The addon assembles the carpet (I've tried both random and the Vvardenfell miniature), but the keybinds don't work (I've tried different combos), and I no longer get the prompt to "jump" to ascend, either. (Jumping to ascend was the only thing that ever worked - the keybinds never have.)

I've tried uninstalling/reinstalling, changing keybinds, resetting the settings, etc. I even tried uninstalling and reinstalling EHT to see if that would fix it.

FWIW: moving sideways became screwy just before it stopped working. If on a platform and I tried to move left or right, it would crash me straight back to the front door of the home.

If you have any ideas on what else I could try, I would appreciate it. Even if it's just jumping to ascend.

Thanks very much and please let me know if you need any other info.

I guess this happens due to an invisible wall to assure the slaughter fishes will get you in the end
We have made a few adjustments that should improve the stability of this mode (S. S. Ess Ess) in version 4.1. Cheers!

We have added Erorah's Lid Flipper with the latest release. This should give everyone another affordable, accessible carpet option in addition to the carpet-based items and the Plank-tato.

I was successful in operating the Xinchei-Konu in the Hall of the Lunar Champion, but in an apartment it doesn't want to work, no matter how much I jump or toggle the ascend / descend option. I can see it tilting when I use the buttons, but it does not want to fly. Does anyone know if there there space limitations?

Thank you,

Typically when this occurs, it means that the game has failed to properly load the collision data for the carpet item(s). If you remove the item from the house, then place the item back into the house manually, and then start the carpet, this often times resolves the issue. If it does not, you may need to first log out and back into the game, and then perform the steps above.

If you click the "MC" button to open the carpet selection window, you should be able to scroll left/right through the various modes to see what item(s) are required by each.
