Farming Acacia & Dark Oak
Posted 02 November 2013 - 08:55 PM
If I get around to it before anyone posts, I'll post my own results here. (may be a while, tho)
Dark Oak: Looks like they need a space of 2 blocks between each other / walls, and 7 blocks height to grow in.
Acacia: No idea yet. lol

Acacia needs a 3x3x7 Block of Air centered over the Acacia Sapling. Other than that it doesn't need much.

(I've spread the dark oaks out a bit more now, in order to increase sapling drops - 4 blocks between each trunk seems to keep me ahead of the game.)

Here's an example. The nearest 2 trees on the right were last to spawn. Their canopies are "shifted" towards the north. I keep coming across this...

(I forgot to enter the left-right spacing for Dark Oak - it's 5 blocks)
(need 24 saplings)
(need 20 saplings)
(need 8 saplings)
Results are only from my first harvest. I threw in my jungle stats simply because it was in the screenshot. I planted the Acacia in the same manner as I do Spruce & Birch. Dark Oak is very easy to farm. Acacia is actually OK - while it looks like quite a jumble to chop thru, the canopy is thin (so you can easily see every wood block) and it's all reachable from ground level (same with Dark Oak).

And Dark Oak is now my go-to wood for non-wood-colour-affected items. (like Charcoal, Sticks, Chests, etc.) The wood amount + sapling return + ease of harvest (never have to leave the ground or hack thru canopy to access the trunk) makes it a real godsend!
