very nice
I think of Christmas as a happy time, It's the only time of the year when every man and woman sees each other as equals. Even if it hasn't put any gold or silver in my pockets I say it has done me good and will do me good and there for I say god bless it! ~Scrooge's Nephew.

Useful indeed!

I suppose it is a pretty cool mod. There are better ones out there though.

Is it wrong for me to want everything in my life to be voiced-over by this guy's voice?

Wow, That's really useful. I'm going to test it right now.

This mod seems to be really unbalanced.

I'm all for seeds doing more than piling up in chests, but a lot of these recipes make little to no sense to me. For example, slime balls don't need a recipe. They can easily be acquired naturally from slimes; so much so that they can easily pile up in chests almost as much as seeds do. Other recipes - like vines, lily-pads, or grass - are ludicrous considering that shears and bonemeal are capable of getting you these items.

This is way too overpowered- all of these additions can be achieved with a little effort.

I have more fuel than what I could ever use, and the rest of the stuff is in abundance once you stop being lazy.

If too many are building up in your chests, you could -[i]oh I don't know[/i]- toss them in lava??

(yeah you can use them as fuel; but too be honest I don't want to be reloading my furnace every-time I cook a full stack.)
So it has come to pass -- Our humble mount -- Rejected en-masse
Farewell my faithful friend -- My trusted steed -- Goodbye, a good friend indeed.   R.I.P Mr Piggy.

Title is confusing though.
I thought it was a mod for World Seeds and not the Seeds which are used for farming.

Oh, and seeds as fuel are overpowered :/ Saplings should last longer than Seeds.

While I partially agree that this mod seems a bit, well, useless? I have to say that I think some people are forgetting that not everyone has time. I can only play for a couple of hours every other day unless I don't want to sleep, so sometimes I don't have time to watch the grass grow. D:

As an in-game kleptomaniac I quite like this mod because I hate throwing away items I've farmed. I think the most useful thing would be using seeds as fuel. On my server we decided to do all our builds legit (and we build big) so we tend to burn through all other fuel sources rather rapidly. XD Same applies to some of my singleplayer worlds. I also quite like the idea of using it to make mossy blocks. If I were to get this mod those are the only two things I'd probably use it for.
But I imagine that anyone who would be interested in this mod would already have something like Too Many Items, so they wouldn't need this mod at all...

The idea is sound, but there are far too many unnecessary recipes.

Adding a way to craft Mossy Stone Brick and Mossy Cobblestone is awesome, and being able to use seeds as fuel is good too (though since saplings only burn for 4 seconds, I would expect a small pile of seeds to burn for only that or less).

Seeds + Dirt for a grass block is cool too, but it does remove one of the few remaining uses for Silk Touch, and part of the challenge of building grassy areas deep underground is getting the grass there.

All of the rest of the seed recipes are pretty useless as they are redundant/unnecessary.

I do agree though that they narrator of the video should be a professional voice actor.  :)

I hate these mods.

Get some actual good content, instead of another mod that makes EVERYTHING craftable with no challenge.

Damn i need slimeballs from slimes, challenging.. nah ill milk a cow and use a seed.
Dammmnnnn that mossy cobble is a real trophy to get.. nah cobble and a seed.
Sweet jesus, mossy stonebricks are VERY hard to get.. nah stonebrick and a seed.

Whats the point? may as well use creative.

How about something for a actual problem/things the community wants?

I could of sworn the mod conflicted with modloader or something, but maybe I should redownload it and see if it works.  I'd really love it if I could legitmately make my seeds into wheat, instead of using Too Many Items to find wheat, spawn it, delete 6 seeds for each wheat.  Ironically, I decided on 6 seeds = 1 wheat a month or two before I heard about this mod a few days ago.  I originally went 9-1, simply to get rid of them.
