Water powered conveyors.
So one of the games that I have been more apt to play is factorio. While I wouldn't recommend merging too many ideas from other games I have seen an opening for where a conveyor could be used in the setting in which we find ourselves. Rather than have a replay of factorio in a 3d setting, why not have the capability of floating logs. While it's not the traditional conveyor system it is a viable way of transporting raw material by use of log flumes or chutes.
Anyway, if someone else can visualize what I am saying, and if it's possible let me know with an upvote or a reply.

Logs already float and can be pushed around.
If water physics was improved beyond minecraft water we could dig canals to transport logs from forests to a sawmill.
That is good to know. I wonder now if we can build those canals you talk about. Thanks for replying!

Actualy... a neat idea would be you know how the aquaduct can transport water horizontaly? ( well... suppose to it's broken in current version ).
Nothing can make the water go upwards... so how about a waterwheel that can pump water upwards... you know oldschool wormdrive in a tube kinda of deal.

Roman used the siphon aquaduct, to get through a valley, similar to this: http://www.romanaqueducts.info/aquasite/foto/teksiphonmodel.jpg
There are two other methods, which I found which doesn't use power:
