This mod is a bugfix mod for vanilla boats.
You're tired of having your boat break randomly into planks when cruising around shores? A squid suddenly pops up and there's no way to prevent a collision? This mod not only fixes the desync issue, but a few annoyances as well:
Boats break into their boat item now! Even if you crash, you won't get planks and sticks back, but rather the boat itself, ready to be placed again!
Your boat won't randomly break in the middle of nowhere anymore! The server now syncs the boat position with the client properly.
Mobs and animals won't break boats anymore! Rather they'll get damaged at a certain velocity. You'll bounce back a bit and can then carry on to the next beach!
You're in creative? There's no need for you to have any kind of item dropped when the boat breaks. This behavior which is already there if you break the boat yourself is now applied to crashed boats as well.
How can you download this mod, I hear you ask!?
Look no further, as the download can be found here:
Does this mod require anything else?
Yes, actually it requires my Manager Pack, which you can find here as well! Convenient, isn't it?
You install both mods by dropping them into the mods folder. You'll need Forge! Recommended is the latest version, but any version above 1291 should work!
Anything else I need to know about this mod? Vazkii gave me the idea for this mod, and since I didn't find any mod which does this functionality, I made this one.
Codewise, I replace the vanilla boat entity with my own custom boat entity to keep compatibility and make it easier for me to fix those issues. Therefore, if you decide to remove the mod, please break any boat beforehand or they'll be lost! (I don't temper with the items, so they'll be safe)
I've seen a few simple boat mods in the past I think that fixed some of theses issues but all are gone now and obviously haven't been updated.Thanks for fixing something that never should have been an issue in the first place. Now about that crafting grid........
Thanks a ton for this. The vanilla boats annoyed the heck out of me.
Can you do an alternate version where the boat doesn't break at all? I know the old boats are going to be replaced with the MCPE boats in 1.9, but unfortunately I'll be stuck with 1.7.10 'til TerraFirmaCraft is updated for 1.8 and up.
If I helped you in any way or agree in my ideas or posts, make sure you click that green arrow pointing up below my post or simply huggle me! I use 1.7.10 (Modded), so when I comment that I like a 1.8 mod, I will comment to downgrade to 1.7.10. I support no pics, no clicks. Suggestions that I think that are the best deserves a banner!
It is almost time to say goodbye to 1.7.10 because of the recent surge of big 1.9 mods.
Why MCreator sucks: jcm2606's file (doesn't open a new tab) He allows/welcomes anyone to link the file, so I put it here in my signature for people to know how MCreator functions. I thank jcm2606 (he's awesome) for creating the document/file and I'm just here to spread the word.

Hello there, first I want to thank you for making this lite mod that make navigating with vanilla boat a less tedious task!
Mod installed fine, and contrary to other mods out there, it didn't fill the console with useless messages.
I have a small request tho, would it be possible to somehow integrate a way to ignore lilypads collision boxes while in the boat?
With World Gen mods, they tend to generate in bigger numbers and it's really annoying to 'boat' in a marsh or a swamp, constantly having to replace your boat.
Let me know what you think of that idea, or maybe you have a better suggestion... anyway I can work with this!
