    WARNING: As the King Arthur's Beta (KAB) mechanics are unstable at the moment, it is unclear what blocks stop the flow of water and how water really works at the moment, use the information in this thread at your own risk Build[749].

    If your mines ever get flooded for whatever weird reason, or you need to build along the floor of the ocean... YOU CAN!

    Be sure to bring a lantern too, its dark under there!

    NOTE: This only works if you're placing doors ON background of some kind, if there isn't background it doesn't displace water and you will drown.

    Also, if any of you guys have ever played Minecraft, use doors like signs. (Only your head has to be inside of the door to take in breath, and doors never let any water through)!

    Happy Oceanic mining.:)

    Wouldn't this be called a bug? Not a feature to exploit?

    Soon after I made this, it seems wooden doors don't displace water anymore? But stone still do....

    Here's a video of some non-glitch airlocks I created back in January during testing. This was near the beginning of my underwater explorations; however, despite there being a few other designs for airlocks I developed afterwards it seems I can't any videos of them atm. I might get to recreating a few of them later on, once I get time to log into the game. Anywho, enjoy! :D

    Cool trick, but is there any way you can create airlocks without doors taking up all the space?

    Don't have time to really demo atm, but you just need to apply the principle that water only flows sideways & down. ;)

    {edit}
    Here, both these work:

    Vertical door:
    :noburu::noburu::noburu::noburu::noburu::noburu::noburu::noburu:
    :castle_wall::castle_wall::castle_wall::castle_wall::castle_wall::noburu::noburu::noburu:
    :castle_bg::castle_bg::castle_bg::castle_bg::castle_wall::noburu::noburu::noburu:
    :castle_bg::castle_bg::castle_bg::castle_bg::castle_wall::noburu::noburu::noburu:
    :dirt::dirt::door::door::castle_wall::noburu::noburu::noburu:
    :dirt::dirt::ladder::noburu::noburu::noburu::noburu::noburu:
    :dirt::dirt::ladder::noburu::noburu::noburu::noburu::noburu:
    :dirt::dirt::ladder::noburu::noburu::noburu::noburu::noburu:
    :dirt::dirt::dirt::dirt::dirt::dirt::dirt::dirt:

    &

    Horizontal door:
    :noburu::noburu::noburu::noburu::noburu::noburu::noburu::noburu:
    :noburu::noburu::noburu::noburu::noburu::noburu::noburu::noburu:
    :castle_wall::castle_wall::castle_wall::castle_wall::castle_wall::noburu::noburu::noburu:
    :castle_bg::castle_bg::castle_bg::castle_bg::castle_wall::noburu::noburu::noburu:
    :castle_bg::castle_bg::castle_bg::castle_bg::castle_wall::noburu::noburu::noburu:
    :dirt::dirt::noburu::noburu::door::noburu::noburu::noburu:
    :dirt::dirt::noburu::noburu::door::noburu::noburu::noburu:
    :dirt::dirt::dirt::dirt::dirt::dirt::dirt::dirt:

    {edit2}
    Also, here's a cheap way to have a team-only breathing space:
    :noburu::noburu::noburu::noburu::noburu::noburu::noburu::noburu:
    :noburu::noburu::castle_wall::castle_wall::castle_wall::castle_wall::noburu::noburu:
    :noburu::noburu::castle_wall::door::door::castle_wall::noburu::noburu:
    :noburu::noburu::noburu::ladder_bg::noburu::noburu::noburu::noburu:
    :noburu::noburu::noburu::ladder_bg::noburu::noburu::noburu::noburu:
    :noburu::noburu::noburu::ladder_bg::noburu::noburu::noburu::noburu:
    :noburu::noburu::noburu::ladder_bg::noburu::noburu::noburu::noburu:
    :dirt::dirt::dirt::dirt::dirt::dirt::dirt::dirt:

    I don't recommend the cheap version... As it is very vulnerable to....
    SHARK ATTACKS.

    :p

    Shark = Zknight but worse...you can't actually avoid getting hit by a shark. You can avoid being hit by a ZKnight :/

    shark can be blocked with shield since he doesn't stun, after i learned this he is much easier to deal with

    But that doesn't help you if you're a builder, which you'd have to be if you were spending long periods on the bottom of the ocean, mining precious, precious gold. :hammer::p:gold:

    box = no float.
    no float = no air.
    no air = dead chubby.

    and you can't throw the box into the water while you are in the box...

    Dam.
    You can play Secret Snake though.
    Just CARRY the box and duck!
    It's so much fun, even though enemies usually get what you're doing after four-five times :(
