Not sure if anyone has thought of like what any of the new tech things will be so I wanted to put my 2 cents in on water tech.
I say we put in basic level pumps for water so that people can reasonably access underground lakes or transport water to nearby areas from above ground lakes.
I don't want it to be too high tech so we don't become like tekkit but it still feels like it would be way more useful than like 5 people carrying buckets from point A to point B repeatedly if they need water from a lake or something.This would also maybe allow towns to be in a few more places then right by a lake or river which are rare in the natural formation of cities but do happen I think.
According to the forum post from the main site the mod will be using a modified version of finite water. Let me grab the quote for convenience's sake. "Water will work slightly differently, similar to Finite water."

These are all great ideas for phase 2, but for phase 1, I don't think we are going to add any tech like this.
Also, even in phase 2, we probably won't have pumps. That is way too high tech. Try to imagine how people watered their crops in real life.
Mostly, they waited for rain, they planted in wetter ground, or they dug channels or wells.
And even if you have to have a few people carrying water with buckets from a lake, once every couple of days to refill your water sources for your farms, why is that bad? People who like to virtual farm actually want stuff to do. We just want to make sure they aren't having to get like 50 buckets a day.
