The "Craftory" mods is the name of a collection of mods inspired by the popular RPGs: Rune Factory & Harvest Moon. Each of these mods can be installed individually, or used together as one for a unique Minecraft experience.
FarmCraftory is a mod that adds various farming tools, crops, and a simplified cooking system to Minecraft.
FruitCraftory is a mod that adds various fruit trees to Minecraft.
FoodCraftory is a mod that changes vanilla food to better accommodate the new food added with FarmCraftory and FruitCraftory.
GuiCraftory is an add-on for FarmCraftory, FruitCraftory, and FoodCraftory that adds food descriptions making it easier to know how much a food item will heal for.

Latest version: MC 1.5.2
Crops and Farming
FarmCraftory adds 13 new seeds and crops into Minecraft. Some crops are single-harvest and yield only one fruit or vegetable after being destroyed. Other crops are multi-harvest and yield two fruits or vegetables after being destroyed. Seeds can be found in tall grass in any biome.
- Turnip - Single Harvest
- Cabbage - Single Harvest
- Onion - Single Harvest
- Spinach - Single Harvest
- Leek - Single Harvest
- Cucumber - Multi Harvest
- Tomato - Multi Harvest
- Corn - Multi Harvest
- Eggplant - Multi Harvest
- Green Pepper - Multi Harvest
- Yam - Multi Harvest
- Strawberry - Multi Harvest
- Pineapple - Multi Harvest
Another farming tool in your new arsenal is a magnifying glass. This item is used to inspect crops to get details about that specific crop. Details shown are:
- Name of the crop
- Current growth stage
- Crop Yield amount
- Seed Yield amount
- Fertilized or unfertilized
FarmCraftory now uses a simplified cooking system. No more having to remember recipes and no more having to wait to cook. How simple is it to use? Really simple. If you hover over the name of the recipe on the right, you'll get a list of ingredients on the left side.
First craft a Kitchen Blender, place it down, and right click to open up the menu.
If you only have some of the ingredients, the items you have will have their name in white while the missing items name will remain grayed out.
If you have the all of the ingredients in your inventory, the recipe name will turn white (yellow when hovering) and become clickable.
If you click the name of the recipe, the items in your inventory will be removed and you'll be given the output in return.

FruitCraftory adds six fruit trees that start out as small saplings and eventually grow into trees with regrowable fruit on them. The six fruit tree types are as follows:
Foodcraftory changes vanilla food values to better accommodate the new food added with FarmCraftory and FruitCraftory. You can also set your own values to any vanilla food items with the configuration file.
GuiCraftory adds food descriptions to every food. Hovering over any edible item will now display the effects the item will give/heal when you consume it. For example, the amount of hunger a food item heals will be displayed under the name.
Items that have extra potion effects (positive and negative) will also be displayed along with the probability of causing the effect.
WateringCraftory optionally adds a more challenging route to growing crops by keeping farmland watered manually by using another tool called a watercan. To fill the watering can, use the empty version of the item on a water source block. To use the watering can, use a filled can directly on the dry farmland or on the crop on top (it will water the farmland beneath it). After a set amount of uses, the watercan will become empty and will need refilling. There are five types of watercans available: Wood, Stone, Iron, Gold, and Diamond. Each will water a specific range of farmland with just one click.
Basic watercan recipe
In junction to the watering can item, there is also a slight change to fundamental mechanics of farming. Every Minecraft morning will begin with a "drying" period which lasts an hour (0 to 1000 Minecraft Time). Any watered farmland that is not near a water source block will change from wet to dry during this period. Use the watercan to water the dry farmland. If the farmland is dry by nightfall (12000 Minecraft Time), it will revert back to dirt.
If using this new mechanic, your crops will need to be watered on a daily basis for them to grow and produce healthy and mature fruit and vegetables. If you forget to water, your crops will eventually turn brown and wilted, and they will stop growing. To cure the wilted status, just water the crop and it will return to its healthy state. If you break a wilted plant, it will give you a withered grass item. This withered grass item is similar to bonemeal as it can be used directly on crops to fertilize them. Fertilized crops grow twice as fast than unfertilized crops. TIP: You may want to purposely allow some of your crops to wilt so you can get withered grass to use on your healthy crops.
Getting an unexplainable crash or bug? Here's a couple of things you can do.
Check your installation method.
- Did you delete META-INF?
- Do you have the correct version of Forge? (Check the REQUIREMENTS section)
- Is Forge installed properly? (Files go into minecraft.jar)
- Try deleting any pre-existing "****Craftory.cfg" files (See Configuration)
- Forge has Modloader pre-installed now. If you had Modloader installed before you installed Forge, there will be a conflict. Start with a fresh minecraft.jar and only install Forge.
[spoiler] <paste error report here> [/spoiler]
You can change block IDs, item IDs, food healing values, and ect with the configuration files. To find the config files, go to your .minecraft/config/ folder. (You must run Minecraft with the mods at least once for the confg files to appear!).
These mods are a culmination of many months of coding, sprite making, and testing done solely by Me, ComicRetrolution. If you would like to give your support, you can send a donation of any amount via PayPal.
If you can't donate, but still want to give your support, a way you can do this is to turn off any adblocker while watching my Youtube videos. This provides me with revenue from them and all revenue generated, either from donations, or through Youtube is put directly back into the mods.
