What Lurks Below is a mod I'm currently developing which adds several new biomes to the ocean, each with its own unique ecosystems.
The mod also allows user suggestions so If you want something and it fits the oceanic feel, please feel free to drop it down below.
- New Hostile Biomes and creatures
- Improved Ocean Exploration
These items can be currently be obtained by defeating the Seasnake Leviathan and is a guaranteed drop (in the form of "The Lost's Treasure"), however you will need to find a "Key of the Lost's Treasure" to open it. These can be found when breaking suspicious sand (the colour is lighter than normal sand) and getting lucky with the loot-table that it is linked to it and break the treasure with the key (DO NOT MINE ANYTHING OTHER THAN THE TREASURE, YOU WILL LOSE THE KEY).
Relic 1 - Necklace of the Lost
The Necklace of the Lost will give the player "The Lost's Sight" effect which adds the effects of a conduit to you for 1 minute.
Relic 2 - Lockbox of the Lost
The Lockbox of the Lost when right clicked will give the player a random item linked to the Lost, i.e Key of the Lost's Treasure, or if you are unlucky absolutely nothing.
Shards of the Lost
These currently have no use but you will need them in the future. I recommend that you keep these safe for the Beta Version as they will be needed for the dungeons and something else that you will have to wait for to see.
The "Seasnake Leviathan"
The Seasnake Leviathan can be found in Sunken Ruins (Sunken Ruins ONLY spawn in hostile biomes)
The "Wretched Scyglush"
The Wretched Scyglush can be found in The Deep.
The 'Bluefin Jatra
The Bluefin Jatra can be found at The Seagrass Meadows and The Coral Forest.
Eel Like Creature Class
Creatures that are shaped like eels and move like eels will belong to this class.
The 'Jytrus Eel'
This little guy can be found at the Thermal Vents.
The Waterskipper can be found in the Seagrass Meadows.
The Seasnake can be found near the ground or burrowed in The Whispering Deep.

Currently there are 6 new ocean biomes:
- The Deep
- The Whispering Deep
- The Coral Forest
- The Thermal Vents
- The Seagrass Meadows
- The Mushroom Grove
- The Crystal Sea
The Coral Forest is a tranquil place where wondrous marine life exist, full of vibrant colours.
The Seagrass Meadows is full of lush and vibrant seagrass where marine life like to stay.
The Mushroom Grove is a rare biome that can only spawn next to the Coral Forest and the Seagrass Meadows and is full of patches of mushrooms.
The Crystal Sea is a rare biome full of crystals.
The Hydrothermal Vents is a warm place where hot magma spews out of magma vents. Lots of slow fish roam this area that become provoked when near other entities.
The Deep holds the remains of titanic beasts that used to roam the world. Although they have been wiped out by a cataclysmic event, it seems not everything has disappeared from the Deep.
The Whispering Deep is a place full of underwater crevices and flooded, winding caves with creatures lurking around every corner.
