0.17 / 0.18: I didn't update this mod because I thought there was another mod with the same functionality as this mod, but that is not the case anymore so I might update when I find time. For now the canalbuilder mod is the best replacement.
Shallow Water Mod
Makes shallow water walkable (although you still cant build on it). Deep water retains its usual properties. This is to make water a tiny bit less annoying to work with.
Adds a cheap landfill-esque way to change deep water to shallow water. Makes you walk a bit slower than usually on water.
This is mostly for flavor, but there are a few gameplay implications: Makes placing pumps easier. Cheap(ish) way to build bridges. Biters can walk over shallow water too.
Does not currently work with water other than the default water, in case your mod adds different water types.
