The Ocean Adventures Mod is a great mod for Minecraft players who love the island lifestyle. With the Ocean Adventures Mod, players enjoy lazing around on islands and taking cruises on their brand new speedboat while fighting off pirates.
What exactly does this mod do? It creates an endless ocean world with beautiful islands of many different biomes. Some islands are small, while others are big and have mountains that reach into the sky.
This mod also adds two new mobs as well as a new ore and armor/tool set. Players can also sail around on a new type of boat, fish for 4 new types of fish, and plant new crops, among other things. There’s even a diving helmet that you can use to swim underwater for extended periods of time and find sunken treasure.
The new mobs are similar to zombie pigmen. They’re called pirates and will attack players fiercely if the player has any valuable item. If you don’t have anything of value, then the pirate will leave you alone unless provoked.
Oceanite is the new ore and it is very different from ordinary Minecraft ores. First, it only spawns on the ocean floor, making it difficult to collect. You’ll want to craft a diving helmet in order to stay underwater for longer periods of time.
But one of the most entertaining parts of the Ocean Adventures mod is the new speedboat. The speedboat can be crafted from iron and redstone and is undoubtedly the best way to travel across the vast ocean world you’ve created. Acceleration is way faster than the vanilla Minecraft boat and it will not get destroyed if you drive it into walls. Best of all, the boat will not float away when left unattended because it has an automatic anchor that slides into the water every time you stop the boat.
Scattered around the islands (and under the water) are mounds of treasure. Treasure is easiest to find on mountain islands because of the low amount of vegetation. If you want to find treasure underwater, then the mod’s creator, MiBeM, recommends installing OptiFine because it makes the water clearer, which also makes it easier to find oceanite.
Once you’ve found a treasure location, you’ll have to work to dig it up. Treasure is often buried ten blocks deep underground and you may have to excavate a 3×3 grid around the area in order to find all of it.
If you like the idea of cruising around tropical-looking islands on a speedboat, fighting off pirates, and digging for buried treasure, then the Ocean Adventures mod is a fantastic way to spice up your Minecraft adventures.
