Ocean Liners

This mod adds ocean travel to Factorio. It is currently an early release without unique graphics for most things.

Currently there are various types of boats which are based on cars. There is also a small chance for oil to spawn in deep water. To acquire this oil, a special type of pumpjack has been added. Pipes may be placed over the ocean and powerful power poles that can only be placed in the ocean have been added.

Your character is also able to slowly swim through water, in case you lose your boat off the shore or want to dismount in the ocean.

Features

Swimming - The player can now swim slowly through the water. This is helpful for getting to your boat, or dismounting in the ocean, even crossing a small channel.
Ocean Biter Attacks - disabled by default but can be enabled in the config. The biters may now come for you over the ocean if you choose. Only for the most brave.
Rails over Water - You can even place these on water while swimming. Boats might be more convenient for placing rails than swimming though. I haven't had much time to test these, so let me know if they work fine.
Rafts - This type of boat is incredibly cheap in terms of cost and fuel, but it is only effective when going downwind. You will have to find another way back, or wait for the winds to turn.

Please give it a go and give me any feedback you have!
Note - a lot of these new features need testing, so please leave your feedback/bugs in the discussions page or on the github as an issue.
Thanks.
