The Slimesling is a utility item used to launch from the ground.
"Charge up, Aim low, Get flinging!
Use Slime Boots if you value your life!"
The Slimesling is used as a tool to quickly gain altitude and/or speed. To use the Slimesling, the use key (default right click) must be held and aimed at the side or top of the block to bounce off of. The player must be touching the ground. Depending on how pulled back the Slimesling is, the user will be launched into the air opposite the direction which they were facing when aiming at the block.
Due to the high altitude that results in using the Slimesling, it must be used in conjunction with Slime Boots or any other equipment/item that will negate or greatly reduce fall damage.
- The Slimesling uses the vanilla Bow animation.
- The gamerule "disableElytraMovementCheck" must be set to true in order to smoothly move from chunk to chunk smoothly without stopping midair.
- When aimed straight down, the Slimesling will launch the player 22 blocks upward.
