I was thinking while playing minecraft alpha and realised that water (especially under it) are being quite neglected. although there is craftable boat. Please forgive me if someone already posted this idea, I had this idea, and just create a forum account to post this idea out loud.
Below are my Idea in pointform
Boat + + = Yellow Submarine
- We shall venture into the water
+ + + alot = underwater dome
alowing miners to build underwater atlantis city along thoes lines.
Yellow Submarine with the soon to be added fishes are good together visually
- stuff like seaweeds and corals are must have but, pretty useless since there is a nubmer of block type limitation, just thinking out loud.
Manually: use fist (punch) to drive it or something with an engine that consumes coal like the furnace. to drain water out.
Underwater lighting, IT IS SOO DARK IN THE WATER.
Diving suit = + + + alot making gold useful for diving since it doesnt rust.
FINALLY the most important thing. DIVING SUIT. preferable similar to thoes of the bioshock big daddy kind. hence going into water doesnt drown you.
i do really like theres ideas
there are probably (but im uncirtain) that there are threads like this but i stumbled on this one
i agree totally that there is great potential with underwater building and exploration and i think notch will definatly do more things conserning underwater but at the moment hes only one person so i rekon over time this will expand.
underwater buildings already exist there are different method people do if you search google and the forums you'll find something the only thing (like you said) its extremely hard because of the darkness and limited time underwater but this makes people go WOW more often to epic underwater structures as they are harder to create
yeah i found the post, it was on about oceans. but at a different degree, meaning rather than the usual amount of water (which i think is a lot) they want more water in the size of like ocean. My this idea came from the large water area i encountered near my new site of operation. i made a boat, i sail, i went for a swim, almost drown because its deep and dark, and hence i feel that this part can have alot of features to be added, it has potential.
My idea is not to make something soo drastic that it strays from original gameplay, but rather a few tools and object to make the water a explorable region, possibly after fishing, rather than on the SURFACE of the water, we go INTO the water. The must have are diving suit if not add in the yellow submarine which i think is cool. and something that drains water and strutucture that you can "insta-build in the seabed" to become your underwater base of operation
edit: rather than instabuild, i thought of making something like a floating platform that will sinks into the water like RAPTURE. oh noes, too much bioshock... :tongue.gif:, well it allows people to build "extensively" underwater.
+ with submarine or diving suit, we need water chambers.
