[suggestion]There isn't a dreger but there could be.

Recommended Posts

An idea for a new boat - The dredger.

 

It basically uses a flat platform with paddles to drive it, the commander rows it from the front where he can see where it is dredging. On the front, there is a bucket ladder driven by a hand winch. The bucket ladder can be set to a specific depth so dredging is at a constant level below water. It can be operated by one person or two, for one person, they need to position the dredger and then operate the winch. For two people, the winch can be operated while the dredger moves which makes dredging faster. the dredged dirt/sand or whatever piles up on the flat deck and has to be emptied when it reaches 100. Can be used in conjunction with large crates, transfer the dirt into the crates manually from the deck of the dredger. Can take up to 4 large crates. It requires the water initially to be as deep as a person can dig while standing in the water.

 

Every action can be completed by the commander without moving but if two players are working together, the player operating the winch stands at the front where the bucket ladder is located. Either player can transfer the dirt that has been dredged into crates.

 

Size of the boat is the same length as a sailing boat but twice as wide. The bucket ladder stands above the deck half the height of a normal triangular sail when not being operated. Height during operation depends on the depth being dredged as the bucket ladder is tilted in order for the front to go deeper, however, it does not go above the height of a triangular sail at max dredging depth so if a sailing boat can go under a bridge, a dredger will also.

Yes, I know about that. However, it can hold only 2 piles of dirt before it has to be hauled up and emptied.

 

My idea allows the players to dredge a large area without constantly emptying the dredge every two piles. It's also another thing we can build and use :) rather than something else to go in our inventory.

DigToGround mod allows dredging into the boat or to the ground.

Great, I'll install a mod that uses the existing stuff rather than have something new to build. :/

 

the whole idea was to have something new to build instead of coming to a grinding halt after building practically everything there is to build. As a single player, once you've built one of each of the ships, there's not much point in building duplicates. A ship that has another purpose on the other hand...

Well, the mod does already exist while the dredger is just a coin in a wishing well.
