      Am I the only person that finds this sentiment? Frustrating? Isn't the whole point of a fine arts degree to think about the meaning and the abstract of life. Like I realized that this comment is a joke, but the fact that it said so often obviously means there's some truth to it.. just seems so counterproductive

    I've always imagined that the reason you cannot retrieve a saddle from a strider is because the nether is so hot, that the saddle melts and fuses into the striders skin.

      You can kill striders for saddles and the exact same same problem is about pigs, when you put a saddle on one you can't take it off and it just walks away.

    I love chest boats in early exploration. I often spend a lot of time in a new world just finding the place I want to live and I tend to pick up a lot of stuff while I'm doing that. Before the chestboat, I'd have to leave a chest of stuff somewhere and go back for it later. Mind you, I'm not a packrat, I'm just picky about where I want to live lol

    There is a use for chest boats! In Bedrock, you can put leads on them (you might also be able to in Java, but I don’t know) & pull multiple around. On land you have to go really slow so as to not break the leads, but on water the chest boats travel at the same speed as the boat dragging them so you can take lots of inventory with you on overseas journeys.

    I use chest boats all the time in early game! Pre elytra and shulker boxes, it is a good way of travelling decent distances (doesn't make you hungry to row a boat) and effectively doubles your inventory. As someone that takes the early game pretty slow, they are awesome.

    What I've been using the chest boat for is my mining machine. I made a docking station that will empty out a chest boat in about 6 seconds. Two different mining machines one at layer 19 the other one layer negative 56 and my sorting/shulker packing system at negative 20. I just extend my ice path as I get further along. I fill up two chest boots Tie a lead to one and take them both to the docking station

    I mostly play mid-game minecraft (having everything except what's in the end dimension) and I've been having fun with chest boats. I would often travel to a cardinal direction I've never been to yet and because of the bigger and longer rivers it's now possible to travel so far without leaving your boat.

  • The Emerald Weirdo
    The Emerald Weirdo 2 months ago +1

    I've used a chestboat while crossing oceans, because that way I can loot more ruins/shipwrecks/buried treasures before I have to go home and empty out my inventory. The fact that you think their intended purpose is useless says a lot about your playstyle: Mainly, that you've gotten WAY too used to having Shulker Boxes ASAP due to the other Hermits taking out the Ender Dragon during the first few episodes of each season. You need to do a singleplayer survival series sometime, so you can see how hard us regular folk have it.

    Chest boats are useful if you for some reason lack a bunch of iron (vanilla skyblock for example) to afford a lot of hoppers. You can feed up to 12 chests with a single hopper by just stacking them and placing a few fences to keep em seperated and in place.

  • Syhmac

    Yes, I had a situation when I had to transport a bunch of items down the river in early game, so of course no elytras, shulkers etc. I have used boats with chests and it worked perfectly.

  • Louai

    the chest boat actually came in handy when i started a realm with my friends and we wanted to move from one location to another but i had too many stuff to carry and we didn’t have any ended chests or shulker boxes yet. it works as an extra storage space for transportation but i can’t imagine using it in late game

    I love chest boats for initial exploration of a new world. I no longer have to skip all the sunken ships, etc. due to inventory limits. Also, in Skyblock when I can't afford a lot of hoppers i can run a single hopper into 4 chest boats and even stack them to have one hopper going into 12 chest boats. Ilmango taught me that.

    Chest boats are definitely useful before you get shulkers and ender chests. Pigs can be used to pull a friend while flying(a bit janky) as demonstrated by ianxofour. You don’t even need a contraption to make a parking space for striders, you can just dig a few blocks and the flowing lava will keep them in place.

    I used the chestboat a lot. Had a garage where I would park it and it would unload my shulkers in it. It was essentially my enderchest but on a boat. It was a fun challenge run, where I had to use the chest boat for any exploring via water, and couldn't break it.

    • chicken_person
      chicken_person 2 months ago +1

      @Acorn But then you have to run back to where the chests are much more frequently, instead of using the chest boat as portable storage. And I'm not even much of a builder. I can see it being incredibly useful for building something in the ocean where you have one central storage for the build, and then use the chest boat to extend inventory space so you don't need to go back and forth as frequently.

    I was so excited to use a chest boat when building a raid farm before going to the end. I was able to collect all my resources and do the entire build in one trip with a full chest boat and a full inventory. The only thing I needed a second trip for was the villager.
    I even built a canal to the bottom of my mountain top base that would drain my chest boats and drop the items into a water stream that went to my storage system. It was a great way to unload resources after exploring.

    The chest boat has been a time saver for me, i had the dream to convert a ocean monument into a actually ocean mansion with a viewing area to look out in the endless ocean, but the problem was that it was too far away and my only elytra was broken and i didn't want to in the end and get a shaulker box, so i waited for the chest boat to be added and then BOOM!!! I was back in business, i could transfer thousands of block by puting a few chickens on a lead in a chest boat, it was so efficient and effective

  • Ninten Joe

    Boats with chests are incredibly useful earlygame! It’s a mobile storage option! A very slow… single chest… that can’t go up any form of incline… but it’s great for exploring and storing that extra few slots worth of ocean temple or sunken ship loot.

    I have, in fact, used the chest boat for its intended purpose. When you don't have shulkers or an enderchest, (Or even if you have an ender chest but no shulkers), the chest boat is a godsend when doing any sort of exploration over water. I think that speaks more to the issues with Minecraft's inventory system than it does to the usefulness of the chest boat though.

    I'm no redstone genius, but do you think if you added an extra space in front of the garage for the strider to walk on so that it's in front of/out of the way of the observer before you get off, then when you get back on the strider it would reset the observer and you wouldn't have it left open when you leave?

  • Gabriel Emerson
    Gabriel Emerson 2 months ago +58

    I think, of all the possible boats there have been in the game's history (without mods/addons), the chest boat is by far the best and most useful. Being able to store more stuff than only fits in your inventory when you explore across open waters is amazing. Think of all the loot you won't be leaving behind due to a lack of inventory space. I have also seen redstone builds that incorporate the hitbox of chest boats along with hoppers, so as to reduce the amount of iron you need for hoppers, which I think you covered pretty well. I'm sure someone (you, of course, being so brilliant at redstone builds) could also come up with some sort of compact storage system utilizing chest boats in which they pop up similarly to armor stand switchers.

    I’ve haven’t used a chest boat yet, but trying to move stuff before you get shulker boxes is a pain. Chest boats seem like a game changer for trying to move stuff early on.

    My sibling loves just exploring minecraft endlessly, and almost never makes a true base.
    Their favourite method of travel is the boat.
    With the chest boat, now they have twice the inventory space.
    It is their favourite thing Mojang has added ever, except perhaps the ocean update.

I have an smp server with my friends where we each pick an island to build a civilization on (sorta like empires in a way). chest boats are the main way to trade. we pack a bunch of shulkers into the chest boat, and we travel between each others islands like that. its actually better than storing those shulkers in echest so u have more room in the echest

    Chest boats are useful in 2 situations.

    2: in really early game, it's a nice bonus for your inventory while exploring.

    My friends and I have a slightly modded server, just with REI and some basic block and biome additions. The feature mod is Create, which adds multiblock structures for mining, processing blocks, generating power, etc. We actually did use chest boats to transport sand from the desert which was across the ocean when we needed a bunch of glass. So we had 4 inventories worth of sand, in 2 boats. They're like an early game shulker box, an extra inventory that you can travel with (assuming flat ground or open waters). They actually are quite useful!

    I've actually used a chest boat for it's intended purpose, I was gathering vast amounts of Kelp. After I would break a lot of Kelp, I'd swim up and get in the chest boat, ride around on the water collecting the Kelp because it seems to also increase the area you can collect items. I'd then put the Kelp in the chest and use a bubble elevator to get up to my floating island. :)

    Chest boats are super useful in the earlygame, in my experience. Starting the game and almost instantly sailing away in search of villages, shipwrecks, and buried treasure is significantly less annoying than it used to be. As soon as you get set up a long-term base to store your loot, they get significantly less useful, and once you get shulkers, unfortunately, they’re basically obsolete.

    I disagree with the fletching table, Why? Because, if you have villagers you can give them jobs. I think everyone knows that. Then, you can give them te job of a fletcher. you then plant trees and a lot of them. after the trees grow, chop them turn them into sticks and then sell those sticks to the fletcher. It's a really easy way to get emeralds.

    I use chest boats in early world Minecraft games a bit. Mainly use it in redstone. Usefully in many types of contraptions but mainly for increased items dumping speed. Got 4x speed depending on how many hoppers it's on. By the way found out droppers are a really interesting tool for redstone because of the item transfer mechanic that sends items through multiple droppers at once allowing to make cool machines like working slot machines and arcade mini games.

    Mumbo having a laugh at chest boats...
    Yes I have used them, a lot in fact, and they are the best thing ever! Especially early game before shulker boxes for exploring, I mean a single chest boat literally doubles your early game inventory space which is great for collecting the necessities and adventuring loots... also I have seen quote a few in the redstone community taking advantage of Chest Boats for quadrupling item movement. So they are actually useful, very useful in fact...

    Glow squid just had it as decoration and if you are allowed to use it for deccoration then all of these things are usefull for decoration. If decoration does not count (as how it works in my books), glowsquid is still useless, fletching table has a use in that its usefull for trading so its not useless, giants and stridors you did a great job at making them usefull, chest boat is usefull early game when you dont have a base/storage system, pig can be used to go though a 1x1 corridor

    8:52 For chest boats (and striders for that matter), I don't think they're going to be very useful for any late-game players, but for early game they can be nice. Pre-elytra and shulker box, chest boats could be useful if someone wants to start a build project in the ocean and needs to transport a bunch of items to the spot. Striders can be useful for someone with limited potions (and though ugly, you can just use blocks to trap it so you don't lose the saddle)

      Not just for ocean building projects.
      "Early" game (well, more like mid game for me, since I don't usually focus much on getting to the end and nether), I often find myself using a (chest) boat to travel the long distances to remote map features/biomes (for example to mine some ice).
      Even if the route by water is a bit longer and the boat is a bit slower, it's just a LOT easier to travel by boat instead of horse because you don't have to pay constant attention to things like holes in the ground.

      @bruh bruh I see, and I'll say fair enough. At this point, it comes down to personal preference on inventory size, rather than any objective scale, so I'll leave that side of things alone. Glad we could reach an understanding.

    • bruh bruh
      bruh bruh Month ago

      Eventually, what would end up happening is that players would have to sort even more items when they return home from a mining trip or some other sort of exploration. More items in the inventory means your items you have to put in chests when you return to your base. The current, smaller inventory means players have to be careful about what items they’re willing to keep and which items they aren’t. If they don’t have to make that choice, then when they return home they’d have even more clutter to deal with. The more you expand the size of the inventory, the more of a problem this will be.

    • Naokarma
      Naokarma 2 months ago

      @bruh bruh I follow on the logic of it being just a bandaid solution, but I'm not really sure what you mean about it causing more problems than it solves. Do you mean the larger inventory in general, or more from a "just keep making it bigger" possible direction, or something else I'm not thinking of?

    • bruh bruh
      bruh bruh 2 months ago +1

      Ohh, I see what you mean. Yeah organizing can be a little tedious at times, but I personally never had too many problems with it. Some extra options for organizing certain items would be cool, like if shulker boxes could automatically refill stacks of blocks as you use them up or something like that. I just disagree completely with adding more slots to the inventory, since that would be more of a band-aid than an actual solution, and it would eventually cause more problems than it solves

    • Naokarma
      Naokarma 2 months ago

      @bruh bruh I'm starting to think we're talking about different things, then, because I mostly agree with what you're saying there. My problem lies with just how much work you have to do with organizing, and how little the game does to help with the constantly-growing variety of blocks, without much to do with making that easier to deal with (plus mega-builds and how much material you need there).
      To compare with other sandbox games for a second: With games like Terraria and (from what I've been told) Stardew Valley, there's a dedicated button to quick-stack to nearby chests for items in your inventory. You simply need to be in range for the items to swap over. Going to each chest one-by-one isn't difficult, it's just boring after a while. Organization and inventory management is still important to do on your side, but you don't have to build an item sorter or manually go down the line just to put away some cobblestone, etc. Not only this, but if you're making a build with a large variety of blocks while in survival, the amount of space to work with is rarely more than enough on a large scale. There are plenty of builds that require several shulker boxes of just the base block (e.g. white concrete). With small-scale builds, a larger inventory isn't needed, but mega-bases become more errand running than building in survival pretty quick.
