As you can see, in real-time, the X-Wing actually moves a lot more slowly.


The video showcases a Command Block-based X-Wing made by MythicalSnowman, on Adrian Brightmoore’s Death Star map. Cubehamster, who put the clip together and submitted the trench run webm to Reddit, noted in a comment that the footage was sped up 32x to create the effect.
