    Hi!
    The vanilla Starbound swim physics works like this:
    - Move player down, constantly, no matter what.
    - Press SPACE to skyrocket like 5 blocks up, or 198 blocks if you have the Swim Boost buff or augment.
    - Give player unlimited jumps
    - Move left and right slowly
    - Make people hate ocean biomes

    This mod replaces those physics with new ones! They work like this:
    - Press UP to swim up
    - Press LEFT to swim left
    - Press RIGHT to swim right
    - Press DOWN to swim down
    - Hold JUMP and swim towards the surface of the liquid to jump out of it

    The player character will automatically begin to swim when the water is up to their chest.

    If you join a multiplayer server with this mod installed, and the server does not have this mod installed, only you will be effected by this mod.

    I started building a base in an ocean biome for obvious reasons and quickly began to hate vanilla swim physics so much I was contemplating constructing elsewhere. Thanks for this mod!

    Loving the mod right now. I actually makes Ocean planet and its tempered cousins less of a slog and something more enjoyable.

    Is this compatible with Frackin Races? Seeing as it increases the swim speed for Hyloti? Would they still have increased speed or would the directional swimming be the same regardless?
