About Better Diving
Better Diving is an overhaul of the vanilla diving experience modeled on the game Subnautica.
For more information visit the wiki (incomplete and written for 1.12).

Some highlights:
- reworked movement in water (no automatic sinking, swim in the direction you are looking, ...)
- reworked oxygen system (dive for up to 45 seconds instead of 15 seconds, ...)
- breaking speed in/under water is equal to breaking speed outside of water
- use diving equipment to move faster, mine faster and dive longer
