A 0.16 fix & extension for icedevml's ships mod: https://mods.factorio.com/mod/Ships
Adds a basic ship.
Adds enhanced ship & battle ship. Better work with bob's plate as ingredients.
It's best to place next to a foreland - this way you will be able to get in, and it won't get blocked.
(just like in the screenshot)
Because of the engine limitation, you need to be very close to the center of the ship to be able to get it - make sure it's accessibe before you get out, or you will not be able to get back in.
0.0.7 Fix missing recipe ingredients
0.0.6 Fix vanilla support
Cannot get off the ship in vanilla:( Strongly suggest this mod https://mods.factorio.com/mod/shallow-water/ to allow you go in and off ship in shallow water. Thanks for Cornyne's suggestion!
