    A few of us watched the Minecon event live for all the new things coming soon to minecraft, I was out voting live on the New mob and we got Mob B! https://twitter.com/minecraftpirate

    Be warned, this is SUPER MEGA cringe, so I have also attached a changelog in text form so you don’t have to suffer! The main update was the Aquatic update, which Jeb introduced near the end, then the rest of it is just utter garbage.

    I feel that @godsdead and the build team, and perhaps some helpers, might need to build some reefs.

    I don’t really care about the Dolphins as much, but atleast the ocean will become more vibrant than it was. I could also see people setting up marine reserves or something, do the fish (and dolphins) also just spawn naturally around coral? or would they need to be spawned in or something, as the sea could also become incredibly silent quickly.

    The trident looks cool also, perhaps it could be the entity for the torpedos? Not sure also if they’re going to be common and overpowered, but atleast the Olympics can have a javelin event of sorts now.

    We’re going to have a problem on our hands, considering everyone on the server’s sleep patterns are out of wack.

    We have plans regarding the reefs when this update is released. No manual building needed. Excited for this update.

    *calls it aquatic update- doesnt add sharks*

    haha anyway i hope this is actually a meaningful update and the mobs will actually be good and not just created to sell plushies (COUGH PARROTS COUGH).

    only sad thing is right now our server wont have any of the tropical oceans or frozen oceans, since regenning our current oceans are just normal oceans, we’d have to extend the world border to get those litty tropical fishes 😛

    those new enchantments for tridents are funny, and i wonder whats gonna happen with those swimming animations 😛


    (plus there should be a new enchantment called “Spearfishing” if u could manage to kill one of the new fish with a trident haha)

    we will have to find a way to make dolphins eat people, as the sea is missing a predator, and a squid just wont cut it as a hostile mob!

    But Godsy, the sea already has predators, and its the hostile crews on PirateCraft.
