Boats + Rain turns 10 minute trip into 40 minute trip?

  1. Since no one ever responds to my questions in chat, I will ask here.. Does rain slow down boats now? I am making a normally 10-minute trip and after about 15 minutes I am only about 1/3 of the way now.. It is raining and my boat seems to be very slow, even when sprinting..
  2. No, but kinda' yes.

    Rain creates a fair amount of client lag, on top of client/server loading new chunks as you move through them quickly, which can slow your progress.

    Other than that. I don't know of rain slowing down a boat.
  3. It was probably because of like a billion people on the server at one time.. It felt like my boat was moving slower than the boats in beta.. o3o
