A player who uploaded a video of themself traveling uphill on an iceboat in a build of Minecraft Java 1.19.4 shared an innovative method for traversing Minecraft’s often huge regions.
Many PC gamers still prefer the original Minecraft, the Java edition, despite the fact that console and smartphone players are better familiar with the Bedrock Edition, which is more reliable and works across a wider range of gaming platforms.
Subreddit r/Minecraft user SquareFinder recently posted a video of themselves using the ice boating feature in an innovative way in the upcoming Java edition of Minecraft.
You can see their character in the beginning of the clip, standing in front of an ice track that gradually gains height in a stairstep way, until they hop into a boat and speed up the track, easily making it up the slope and stopping at the top.
Although while ice boat tracks are a common way to navigate about Minecraft, this is the first time that they can be used to go uphill, which is a major addition.

Explorers of the Minecraft subreddit were amazed by the creative use of the ice boating mechanism; one user noted that it would be useful for transporting villagers swiftly and easily.
Another user saw the ice boat’s outstanding uphill mobility and commented, “minecarts are getting owned,” sparking a lively conversation in the comments section about how Mojang should enhance the famous carts.
Some comments mentioned that the odd ice boat behavior has already been logged as a bug and tagged repaired in the next release on Mojang’s bug-tracking site, which is bad news for players hoping to construct an epic uphill ice track.
The video gives a taste of the imaginative applications that gamers might have found for the surprise function, even if the ability to race uphill on a racing ice boat appears to have been a one-time issue that has already been addressed.
Although traveling by ice boat can be fascinating, it is not as practical as, say, constructing a vast network of roads in Minecraft.
