As you can guess from its name, Ships Mod came out to change the concept of sailing in the world of Minecraft. What exactly this mod does is that it allows players to create sailable or functional ships with blocks. Sailing has been a boring thing as ships mostly resemble a bathtub made up of wood. They even come with no engine or sail and their vessels can easily crash. And with this mod installed, players now can resemble ships of different size and purpose.
It’s pretty easy to build a proper ship with Ships Mod. Each type of ship will need different elements. For example, while crafting a basic ship only requires a ship block as well as a paddle, anything beyond a small ship needs a helm, ship blocks, and sails. Remember that each ship block will come with a GUI popup which shows whether your ship will float or whether your ship has the right size or not. So this allows players to make sure that their ship won’t sink when it’s launched.
The fact is that players can build functional ships to sail around the world of Minecraft. Another point that is worth mentioning is that these ships need to be docked before you can modify them. Like a real ship, they also contain a holding spot where players can keep chests or crafting tables, etc. Overall, Ships Mod is a high-quality mod that gives players the ability to build functional ships using blocks.
