Boats Evolved now has a Facebook! http://www.facebook....216532265096810

Alright, so there's this idea I've been working on for the past few weeks. You heard me, weeks. Basically, it's boats. Boats than you can make bigger, slap a name on, armor, choose what propulsion system it has, and carry stuff in.

The full idea is on GetSatisfaction. I really don't feel like putting the idea onto here because, frankly, it's immense. But I just wanted to know if you guys like it as well. If you do, give it a like and comment.

Wow. Looks epic, and you certainly put alot of time into this. If it can't get integrated into vanilla MC there should atleast be a mod for this kind of thing.

Yeah, that's what I'd like at the very least. I'm pretty sure Notch said in one of his old tweets that he likes the idea of bigger boats. So at least I have some hope.

I would prefer something that utilizes redstone.

Lol me too. The dinghies in my idea have twice the amount of health, if that's what you were wondering.

You know, I actually thought about that at first, and came up with a redstone motor that is visible on the smaller boats:

But I ran into a problem. See, redstone power is theoretically infinite, so there would be very little if any cons to the redstone motor. So I decided to opt for a resource-using steam engine instead. Aside from that it would just feel too modern.

I think bigger boats must be added to minecraft. Oceans are way to hard to cross, and this makes it feal more like a RPG, but also more realistic. I think most minecraft players would like it.  :Diamond: Daimond!

EDIT: I think steam engines shouln't be added, redstone should just be slower than normal travel methods. In my opinoin...

Not that redstone. :( I want to be able to use redstone logic to control my big boats.

I love this idea!  As it stands now, Minecraft has a limited number of travel options.  Modular boats would be very useful, especially now that we have larger oceans to explore.  Also, can we say "Pirate Battle?" :)

I absolutely love this, I already love building in the new ocean biome, this would just make it perfect. Also, it would make it bearable to move, I practically cried when I had to move all the stuff from my spawn island to the island I actually built on, on my first 1.8 seed.

this is a very good idea for multiplayer but it would be nice to have a boat that doesnt smash into bits if you crash
(didnt read it all so if there is my bad) because docks are useless if it blows to bits every time i crash

Boats Evolved on GetSatisfaction now has 75 likes and 118 replies. Thanks for the help, everyone!

On a side note...how does one send an idea letter directly to Mojang? Do they discourage doing this? How many ideas are sent to them on a weekly basis? I don't want to come across as the average Joe wanting Notch (And ONLY Notch...for some reason :\) to implement their airplane idea or something.
