The Minecraft world is filled with oceans and lakes. So why aren’t boats a bigger part of the game? Well, thanks to a mod called the Small Boats Mod – they can be! The Small Boats Mod is a small mod that adds two new boats to the Minecraft world.
Those two boats are:
-The Elegant Punt: A working sailboats designed to comfortably seat a single player
-The Whitehall: A much larger boat that is built to carry more supplies and friends
The steering controls work the same as they do with the vanilla Minecraft boat. In fact, you have to make several vanilla Minecraft boats in order to craft the recipes for both boats in this mod (each boat requires players to craft three vanilla Minecraft boats).
Boating features include:
-A working chest to store all your stuff
-A sail that goes up the mast to indicate speed
-Boat heels and boom switches side as you change tack
The Small Boats Mod is still a relatively new mod, and the mod’s creator has some exciting things planned for the future, including:
-Multiple rigging types and sailing ships
-Fully functional interiors
-Advanced control schemes that allow players to set sails, reef the boat, and put it on autopilot
-Ability to carry animals (Noah’s Ark?)
The Small Boats Mod adds two cool-looking boats to your game. These boats allow you to sail across bodies of water more quickly – and stylishly – than the vanilla Minecraft boat. Download this mod today to check it out!
