Today’s Feat Of Minecraft Engineering: A Working Submarine


Dayshot: Admittedly it looks and moves more like a worm (it’s even partly made of slime blocks), but hey, it’s underwater and it keeps you dry. A bit proof of concept-y, but it’s a Minecraft submarine.

Designed by Minecrafter Alex_you, the sub is constructed out of slime, redstone blocks and glass, with glowstone for lighting and pistons that actually move the cabin forward. The start/stop mechanism is operated by way of flint and tinder, as the video shows:

Looks like a bumpy ride. Still, some engineering. If you wanna give it a try yourself, a download link to the map with the submarine in it can be found here, in the video description.

Dayshot showcases some of the prettiest, funniest game-related screenshots and art that we can find.


  • How is it so light underwater? Is that a setting you can change? I go down about 3 blocks and I can hardly see anything.

      • Hmmm, I will have to start looking into potions and whatnot.

        I’ve only just recently jumped back into the game after an absence. Hunger and villages weren’t around last time I was playing!
