For years, the bottom of the ocean was a place best left avoided in Minecraft. Sure, it might make a nice spot to build a tidy little base on a Factions server or something, but for everyone else there just wasn’t any reason to explore the depths of the ocean. The addition of ocean monuments in Minecraft 1.8 finally gave everyone a good reason to try and venture to the bottom of the world. The Deep Sea Diving Mod has the potential to make visiting those monuments much easier for the player because it adds items that will give the player special buffs and traits when worn.
As you might expect, the Scuba Mask item gives you both waterbreathing as well as a night vision effect, though this is only active whenever you are submerged in the water. There are flippers which you can wear on your feet too, and they let you move significantly faster in the water, ultimately a bit faster than you would move while walking around on the earth. There is even a special harpoon gun which can be used for ranged combat while under the water. This is great since arrows don’t work at all in that environment.
Fortunately, the recipes for these items are simple and the materials are common enough that you can start your diving career very early in Minecraft. Because of this, survival island seeds surrounded by water are a lot more fun than they would be without the Deep Sea Diving Mod. Again, the main use for this mod is gearing yourself so you can adventure in those ocean monuments, but if you were looking to take a stroll on the ocean floor like Nemo and company in 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, this mod will let you do it.
