Are you sure you want to report this?

Minecraft has a lot of blocks, but what if they had more? Why do we need them? Please don't just add lists of things! Also, no furniture, guns, or vertical slabs.

    Maybe not the guns though. I know some of my friends parents let them play Minecraft because it is not violent adding guns in might make it violent.

    So many suggestions, and so many great points made! However, I believe this is being looked at from the wrong angle. Remember fantastical mods such as Metaworlds, or Archimedes Ships? Why have an already-crafted ship that cannot be changed, when the player could built their own! This of course would function similarly as said above, with the ships relying on sails and utilized for storage, along with carrying capacity, but in those regards could also be customized and built in any fashion the player would dream! Imagine building your very own pirate vessel, loaded with TNT cannons for raiding and pillaging coastal settlements on a PvP server! Or picture another example, a lone voyager constructs a bulky, hardy ship and sets off into the unknown world, using the ship as a mobile base in order to survive and collect artifacts during his journey. The potential is limitless, and would add an undeniably remarkable aspect to the game that would further advocate the idea of building and exploring.

    I think that something must be done to allow traveling with a chest on the sea earlier in the game (shulker boxes are the end game solution), and a boat with a chest or larger boat are two possibilites. I think, however, that larger boats don't fit well with vanilla minecraft, because of the crafting limitations. The Archimedes ships mod allows for the construction of ships and airships, and then the placement of some helm block allows the ship to move/fly. I don't think this should be incorporated into minecraft as it is already a mod, and would, at least in my sight, be too unlike any other feature in the game to seem natural. Boats with chests is the best way to solve the issue of transporting items

    What if you could craft a boat that you could tie a rope to, and tie to other boats? What if you could put a chest in the boat? What if you could put a furnace in the boat?

    Maybe the boats/ships could have dispensers instead of cannons.

    I also thought about that and I got another idea you could get normal boats and place blocks on the boat so it will be customised

    Please add a ship steering wheel so that you can make a ship and be able to drive it and cannons so they look more realistic thanks.

    Multi-block structures or multi- step crafting recipe would be good

    I think ships shouldn't allow to put chests on them, 'cause there are already mobs that you can get to move items around. But I totally agree there should exist bigger ships that allow to transport more lammas inside. Or at least append boats to each other. Also the banners on boats idea is also pretty good (me tioned in comments and another post). Canons would be cool. Guns... you already have bows for range; a workaround would be if guns did a lot more damage but misses more times so everything was kept more less balanced.

    Perhaps ships like the Archimedes' Ships mod. Would still have the creative aspect Minecraft wants to keep but will also add Airships. Even if they cut the Airships it would still be cool to have working ships in my kingdom.

    In my opinion this is a very good idea and you will not have to make a limit of 12 years or more, definitely it is very cool !!!

    Perhaps at least rafts, small sailboats, and canoes could be added. Maybe they could be created via blocks (like golems) rather than just being crafted in a table. That would be interesting! 

    Ex: placing four wood logs and then stripping them would create a canoe, raft would be a 2x3 logs and a banner on one of the middle blocks, sailboats could just be a normal boat + a banner

    To address to crafting table problem; you can just craft components of the boat, and then assemble the components on a crafting table to make the final ship.

    Maybe the boats would come in different sizes and have their own table for all the recipes and they can hold beds and chests and crafting blocks and even whole big houses

    I just want a more convenient way of transporting mobs over the ocean. Yes, you can currently haul many mobs with ease, but my horse....what about my horse? I suppose it could be a cool way to implement new multiplayer aspects in both cooperative and pvp settings. Though I'm not totally sold on guns or cannons, trebuchets/catapults sound perfect. High seas pvp with trebuchets. Oh yeah. Conquest.

    I think barges would be a cool boat to add. They could be used to transport large amounts of items through rivers and canals, kind of like an aquatic alternative to llamas. Other types of boats would be cool as well. You shouldn't be able to craft these boats, because no crafting recipe would be a fair price for them.

    Really good idea but what do you think of more like viking theme with viking villages on islands. The vikings can come trade with you if your bed where you last slept is next to water. But they can also attack and steal stuff out of your chests if the chest are not protected ( stealing probably only in hard mode)
    And also like those bigger viking / pirate ships where they trade and attack with
    Don't know about the flintknock it has somthing but it isn't going to fit in the game.
    With those viking Maybe some armor and helmets or the wapens they used ( knifs and battle axes )
