    they should also crash along shores too

    The wave could be an entity, rather than a block, similar to how a shulker behaves like a block with a dynamic hitbox. I think this would be a great addition. Realistically, the kind of waves which crash on shores aren't noticeable in deep water, so they should spawn near coasts rather than out at sea.

    I would love to see that and just a thought randomly stuff can brought in by the waves ( Nautilus shell, Trident, sea grass, etc.) That would be a good addition to Minecraft.

    Sounds really hard to implement with not a lot of benefit tbh. Not a great idea.

    I love dangerous situations in game, maybe during a storm at sea the water tries to pull you under, just to add more caution about these things that get boring sometimes

    I like this idea. I have recently built some large ships and would like to have waves around them rather than a calm surface.

    Then you could grab a boat and make a like surf board thing!

    And when there are thunderstorms, the waves get crazier and life threatening? Just throwing out some ideas.. Maybe a surfboard that can be used as transportation and better than the boat? Ooh, maybe you can make a net to grab items washed up from the waves..

    Honkitha, some people don't know how to get mods, like me. Also, they might not have enough money to buy them.

    Maybe for an animation there might be one snow higher of water where the wave is.

    This would be great for immersion!

    It would be cool! But only in REALY deep areas.

    Waves would add some lively appearance! I agree with another person's response that the waves should break near the shores, not in the deep.

    If anything was going to happen in the deep, it would be swells, which I think could look cool, but I really question if it would be worth the potential trouble (like driving boats through a bunch of fluctuating water blocks...).

    Curling waves would be cool for sure, but I would even just be okay with a whitewash effect that pushes you around some like flowing water already does (or like how dolphins do). Something simple, visually peaceful and lively with a slighty fun motion mechanic.

    Cherry on top:
    In locations where a wave (whitewash) meets a block that is greater than level with the water (Z+1), it would be cool for a small splash against the side of the Z+1 block... like waves hitting a coastal rock wall.

    Waves do sound like a great feature to add, but can you give us a reason why to add it?

    i think that this idea is really cool, and that it could be added since we've just had the aquatic update, except that the update is already out, and it would kinda be too late

    and also, it would probably need a TON of coding from the MC team

    but anyway, nice idea!

    That costs a lot of lags imo ,perhaps Mojang could find solution for it who knows lol

    Not only could that break many item transport systems, but it could also interfere with underwater base navigation (where you're in the water with a conduit). Not to mention it would also be hard to implement!

    The waves direction should be able to be controlled

    Kinda hard to imagine. Maybe waves in 2D on water blocks, but not effecting anything w/ physics?

    maybe waves always go towards the nearest shore, so that you could build a giant island in the middle of the ocean, to have free water streams for farms?

    What do you mean by waves? Will the water rise and fall? Will it just be graphical? We will be able to turn it off, right?

    This should only be a practical effect

    also if this was a feature then riding a boat will be much more exiting.
