It would be wonderful if Mojang added this (Or something like this) and single-biome maps at the same time. Just imagine it: You spawn on a small island with one tree in the middle of a gigantic ocean with only occasional small sandbars and islets where you have to build your house, and build up your boat until you're the king of the sea, traveling to distant mysterious island dungeons with unknown treasures, fighting sea-monsters, and, of course, traveling to floating NPC Villages of wood and other lightweight materials to trade with the locals.. I figure it's only a matter of time, and that patience is the key.
Thats AWESOME. 100% support.
Maybe someone could make a mod of these?
Yes it is.
Someone probably could and I'm actually surprised no one has thought to yet. I'm gonna twist the original poster's nipples to put forth his idea to a modder since he was waiting to see if any plans were mentioned before the latest release. Since there wasn't then nipple twisting shall commence.
This idea is awesome! Minecraft really needs more features for the oceans and this also makes navigating oceans much more plausible. HoweverI don't think it's unrealistic for a boat made of wooden planks to sink after being hit by a really fast arrow, but otherwise I fully support this idea.
Hmm. I don't think it should necessarily be added to the game(I think its more of mod material, but then again, ender chests were added in far after chickenbones and uh...the other authors made their ender chest idea), but it is a REALLY cool suggestion! Also, did you make all of the GUIs and models yourself? If so, BRAVO!
Yes, yes he did.
Agreed it is a large concept but the core concept being added would be nice and as you stated they have been adding some pretty weird crap into Minecraft as of late, and things that were mods before. So who knows what the future may hold. The only issue I have is no one can be certain just how long they are going to keep adding stuff. Minecraft might be close to running its course. =/
This would be awsome!!! I am a big pirate fan (Zoro says it all). This idea would take alot of programming though. It would probably take several updates to get all of it into the game. I also think add airships would be cool too.
