An Earthbender can use the Catapult ability as a defensive mechanism, an offensive attack, or a form of transportation. The earthbender will use this ability to propell himself up or forward (or both). Allowing temporary levitation, access to higher places otherwise difficult to access, and a fun way to travel. You can also use this ability to catapult others.
Player - How to useEdit
To use the catapult ability, a player will first have to bind the ability, this can be done with the command:
/bending bind Catapult
Once the ability has been bound, a player can use it in any way they want. Only limited by their imagination. A pillar of earth will jut up from under you, launching you in that direction. It can propell you forward if there is enough earth behind you to catapult you as well. Skillful use of this ability takes much time and work. Be careful and make sure you land on something you can bend, to avoid taking the fall damage from this ability. Make sure you are well aware of the passive ability you have innately as an earthbender.

/bending help Catapult
Admins - PermissionsEdit
By default, all earthbenders have this ability. However, if you have an advanced permissions setup, you may want to control who can use what. You can do this by negating the following permission node:
The method in which you negate a permission node varies depending on the permissions plugin you use. Consult the documentation for your permissions plugin of choice for more information on negating a permission node.
Alternatively, if you want to control all of the earthbending moves with one node, use the following:
Admins - ConfigurationEdit
In the config.yml, you can configure the Length, Speed, and Push of the catapult. This should be pretty self explanatory, feel free to play around with the numbers to get it to your liking.
To edit the Catapult attributes, find the following in your config.yml:
Catapult: Length: 7 Speed: 12 Push: 5
Be Aware: When working with yml files, spacing is very important. Always use spaces instead of tabs to prevent error.
