It's a Water Based Dimension Mod! Not like Tropicraft or Aquacraft but completely Different! Now I will explain the basics of that we are going to be adding!! First of all there are very Big and Rare islands in this mod as well as little ones, in these Big Islands there will be Dungeons, NPC Villages, Relics and different biomes, but the main factor is that there is a really big ocean with Biomes in it. There will be lots of Building, Dungeons, Corals, Ruins, Relics, NPC Villages and some other stuff.
Now let's get to the Portal, Biomes, Ores, Mobs, NPCs and Bosses in this mod.
PORTAL:The Portal is different to any portal ever crated in a Mod or Vanilla Minecraft. It's a Geyser!! Soon more about it will be posted!
BIOMES:The Biomes in this Mod are still in consideration witch ones we pic.But these are the ones that we think we will include.
Tropical Island Biomes: (THERE WILL BE DUNGEONS ON ALL THE ISLAND) Coast: Sandy Beach with some Palm and CoconutTrees. Tropic Jungle: Really big jungle trees (bigger thanminecraft ones), Little Rivers, NPC Tribe Villages, Ruins and some Fruit Treeslike Orange, Grape, Banana, Mangos and Papayas. Tropic Swamp: Really big swamp trees, Mangroves, Mob Tribe Villages, Quicksand and Melons (notwatermelons) Volcano: Big mountains spitting out smoke. Onlyextreme resistant mobs live here.
Ocean Biomes:(THERE WILL BE DUNGEONS ON ALL THE OCEAN) Sand plains: Not too deep (butstill about a hundred blocks), plains of sand with occasional seaweed, shells,an boulders. Shipwrecks can also be found. Common and not too exciting fish willspawn here. Seaweed forest: A forest of huge tree likeseaweed, corral, rocks and sand. There would be a big variety ofmobs. Coral Reefs: A Explosion of AMAZING THINGS! bunch ofcolorful coral, seaweed, NPC Villages, relics, Shipwrecks and more... Therewould be a big variety of mobs like rare, uncommon fish and crustaceans andsnail mobs. Giant Coral Reefs: A Bigger Explosion of BIGGER AMAZING THINGS!! Rocky: seaweed, little bit of corral, rockymountains and Mob Villages. There would be fish andmobs. Abyss: Like a ravine you might find in vanillaMinecraft but HUGE. It would be rocky, and might have corral near the top. Itwould be sandy at the bottom with anglerfish, deep sea crustaceans, vampiresquid basically things that live in the dark.
ORES: We have some planed out!! (We will announce them soon!)
Mobs:These are the Mobs we plan on adding. Island Mobs: Toucans Parrots Flamingos Snakes (Anacondas, Boas, Pythons) Poison Dart Frogs Butterflies Iguanas Turtles Boars Lemurs Peacocks Capybaras Tapirs Okapis
Ocean Mobs: Whales Sea Horses (Tamable/Ridable) Crabs Sea Urchin Star Fish Jelly Fish Dugong Sea Pig Wave Sheep Sandswills Eels Lobsters Clams Sea Slugs Fish Sharks Dolphins (dog style behavior and can be tamed) Octopus/Squid People Skeletal Pirates Maybe some mythical creatures to!
NPCs:These are the NPCs on the Island and Ocean! Island NPCs:Tribal People NPCCat's NPCMonkey/Gorilla/Orangutan NPC
Ocean NPCs:Mermaids NPC

Here are a few of the many models that we have made, you
can find there stats, names, descriptions and any other
AND ALL OF YOU GUYS THAT GAVE SUGESTIONS AND VOLUNTIERED TO HELP!!
Well, to start with, like Jex said, you have to make it different than Tropicraft and Aquacraft. That is a priority.
Now I know this may not be at all what you were thinking, BUT I'd propose a dimension that is mostly JUST underwater, with maybe occasional islands and stuff anyway here are some ideas:
-Sand plains: Not too deep (but still about a hundred blocks), plains of sand with occasional seaweed, shells, an boulders. Shiprecks can also be found. Mobs would probably be crabs, shellfish, sea worms (?!), common and not too exciting fish. Stuff like that
-Abyss: Like a ravine you might find in vanilla Minecraft but HUGE. It would be rocky, and might have corral near the top. It would be sandy at the bottom with anglerfish, deep sea crustaceons, vampire squid ect.
-Island: You might find the occasional island, that can get quite big. Although it is not the aim to establish survival on land in the dimension, some islands could have enough to survive on. Palm trees, sandy beaches, the usual. Maybe no lots of tropical mobs.
-Sea forest: A forest of huge tree like seaweed, corral, rocks sand, and more... There would be a big variety of mobs. Just read Jules Verne 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea. You get the point.
-Rocky : Mobs, seaweed, some corral, rocky mountains. The name says it ALL.
-Corral Reef: YAY!!! Explosion of AMAZING THINGS. Lots of colourful CORRAL, tons of fish and crustaceans. Shipwrecks. AMAZING!!!!
-Cave: There be Mutant Prehistoric Piranhas in here. And ores. Basically things that live in the dark.
-Volcano: Big mountains spitting out smoke. Only extreme resistant mobs live here. See the real thing.
Dammit it's late, I finish off the biomes and then tackle some other stuff later.
Okay, the weekend. Let me do some mobs before lunch.
As this is an imaginary dimension mod (as is the Aether), then the first type of fish would be either imaginary or very well known. I know there are millions of species of fish that exist and could be added but I don't know whether they should be a priority. Here are some need to have ones:
-Little fish: Well, small fish, I think these should be real. Just a few to giv the place atmosphere, you know.
-Sea pig: Litterally something that looks like the real thing (look it up on google) and maybe a bit more like a litteral pig. It would drop SeaPorcchop, and would act like a pig. Unlike the real thing that lives deep down, this thing would live everywhere. This might be the first one I model.
Sea Cow: WOW! It really isn't hard to find a sea equivalent of things, eh? This sea cow or Dugong would be like a cow, but would give SEA CHEESE if right clicked with a bucket and would drop leather and Sea Beef. (I think I am excessively using the word sea so I shall stop)
-Wave Sheep: These would be the equivalent of sheep. They are purely made up and could be sheered for seaweed. They kinda float around and move a bit like waves. They wouldn't live deep down and can be easily found on the surface.
-Sea Squid! (kidding)
-Sandswills: These would be creatures which would hide in the sand (like stingrays in MoC). They are wide and slightly ray like. Some have seaweed on their back. Everynow and again, you will see one stick it's eyes out of the sand to look around. They drop some food of some sort, and SandScales. These can be used for armor. They can also drop SandSwill bones, that can be made into a sword.
-Crabs: Range from all sizes, getting bigger the further down you get (you can find the King Crab boss dungeon in the abyss). They are neutral, and sometimes agressive. They drop food and crab shells that can be used for armor.
Lunch and a party this afternoon, more to come
You have very awesome Ideas! Can you give some for the Island Mobs?
Also if you need a boss/mini Boss(likee wither) i got a idea (it will also include a dungeon) and the idea is : A deep sea Lobster King (it will probaly be a big one) It will live in abyss like ravine (see Zorkalorps ideas) and will be protected by big (pig size(maybe bigger)) normal lobsters and it will guard some loot (pretty much the usual kind of dungeon) You will fight your way trough the lobsters into the King lobsters room where you will meet the King Lobster (maybe also 2 or 4 guardian lobsters) The Lobster should have some special attacks (like grabbing you with it claws)... Also another ida what about making marine gastropods maybe you they could be like pigs of the Sea (maybe also rideable but uncontrollable(like pigs))
Really Epic ideas! Especially with the Lobster King Boss one!
I think you shouldn't add theese...I better like the Tropic sea world Also you could maybe use the Lobster Dungeon idea with Crabs instead it gives more sense with King Crabs (I think)
Edit: I support Zork's ideas! It could also be nice with a ''Mangrove cave dungeon'' Could be something with a Huge mangrove tree on a little mangrove island then you go down under the roots into the cave under the Tree the cave will be full of roots hangin' down from the ceiling and stuff from the tree,You then gets into a small labyrinth of caves (still lots of roots out of the wall 'n' celing)it will eventually be full of Crocodiles, bats and traps (maybe even Komodo Dragons! )But when you have gotten all the way through the labyrinth you will find a temple ruin like chamber (like Jungle temples) whre you need to solve a puzzle,kill a mini boss or something you will get to the Loot room
It could also be nice to huge Sea Scorpions in the Abyss
Compressed Sandstone:(it's a block not a ore) It's pretty much like the Vanilla stone you use it to make the tools. It's found beneath the Sand-plains.
Coal: Exactly the same as normal coal ores.
Rusted Iron: Rusted Iron reminds of the Vanilla Iron but it has a decreased durability, it is also more common.
Aqua Gem: A rare gem found in dungeons (As loot) or in the Deep Abyss. You use it for Trading perhaps?
Cobalt: Cobalt ores are found near the underwater Volcanoes, is is the link between Iron and Gold it has a very high durability.
Ash Stone: (this is a block too) It is the block that makes up the Mountain Ridge and Underwater Volcanoes it acts like gravel and drops Volcanic dust or maybe sometime even rare (as rare as flint) Iron Snail Shell, that can be smelted to Rusted Iron Ingots.
Iron Snail: (this is a mob to match the suggestion above) The Iron snail is a real-life Marine Gastropod that lives in the Volcanic Ashes of the Mountain Ridge is moves slowly around and is passive, it sometimes drops Iron Snail Shell.
WOW!! I see you have a Bunch of ideas!! We will include some of those ores (maybe all XD)
You should add komodo dragons but not in mangroves but near beach shores or villages. Because I'm living in the country where the komodo dragons come from (Indonesia) I know where they live and what they eat.
Also add villagers that give quests like kill some komodos that harm them.
It could be nice to have deep sea Submarines Those small yellow ones with their robot arms and small lights... Okay imagine you sitting in one of those small submarines its dark, their isn't much space and you don't know what you could meet down there (Creepy?), suddenly you hears some odd noises from behind, the light on you submarines fades out and everything is dark...Then you hear the odd noise again and Red lamps blink warning you about that the motor is damaged, you can hear the noise of something big and agile attacking your machine-then you hears a Hissing noise and the noises stops...All is quite...VERY quite... ...You hear a sound...the sound of something BIG...quite... ...Suddenly-out of nothing'two huge beak like jaws grabs and chews in the cockpit the Alarm starts warning you, and there is total panic as this huge creature rushes you little one man sub' the glass breaks and everything is dark... ... ...Many weeks later you wakes up at a hospital missing you arm and with two broken legs and bad wounds, you memory is completely gone you don't remember anything about the beast, only the submarine...Nobody will ever knew what happened... ...And the Beast will continue ruling the deep sea with its terror...
That is my new suggestion: The Submarine and the Beast: it isn't a Octopus as you may have thought no... it's something much worse...it is the... the...(Insert cool name here) something that sounds south pacific small islands-like...Ka' thiku-tarr or something i don't know...anyway is looks like this just bigger and even more fearsome...Maybe it could be a semiboss, or just a rare ' n' hard to defeat mob
how about whenever you are in the yellow submarine, the song Yellow Submarine by The Beatles come on. Also, I'm following this mod. Great potential.
