What is it?

You ever try building something underwater? Rough, right? The constant drowning, the slowness of breaking blocks, the lack of movement and the expensiveness of Vanilla ways to deal with it. Now there's an easy, standalone way to deal with working underwater. Simple Diving Gear!


What does it do?

It adds a suit of diving gear, with one optional upgrade, and that's it!


When wearing the suit outside of the water, you'll be slowed and have a hard time mining, as it's quite cumbersome. But when in the water, it's a completely different story. You get the ability to swim in place, quickly and reliably. You can break blocks at a more normal speed, and of course you can breathe underwater.

Slowness and fatigue out of water:


Water breathing and more, under water. With optional lighting upgrade!


How does it work?

It applys potion effects and enchantments while in the water, and removes them when you leave it.


How to craft things?






Version 1.0.0!:


Adds Diving Suit with one optional upgrade.

Adds crafting recipes

Adds creative tab to put them on.




Support for Simplified Chinese 「简体中文(中国)」language file (zh_cn.lang)

Translation courtesy of: city_sands.




Error kicking players wearing the suit on a server.




Continuously falling through world when wearing armor and switching to spectator mode.

Remaining in flying mode if you removed armor underwater.

Re-implemented a working air breathing system similar to Subnautica's: Lose air while underwater until tank is empty (then go back to held breath), resurface to refill on air.

1.1.1 / 2.0.2 / 3.0.2:

Brought minimum Forge version up to recommended as of 10/15/2019 (Forge 28.1.0)
