Crops and Farming


Posted Image

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
These seeds can only be found in tallgrass by crafting new tool called a Sickle and using it to cut down tall grass. Sickles can be made from Wood, Stone, Iron, Diamond, or Gold. Each type of sickle has the same drop rate, but higher grade sickles have more durability.

Spoiler:

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
Spoiler:

Cooking


Posted Image

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.
Spoiler:

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.
Spoiler:

If you have the all of the ingredients in your inventory, the recipe name will turn white (yellow when hovering) and become clickable.
Spoiler:

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.

Fishcraftory adds several fish mobs that can be caught using a new type of fishing rod.

To make this new fishing rod, you'll need to make a lure.

Spoiler:

Attach this lure to a vanilla fishing rod.

Spoiler:

Casting and reeling with this new rod is quite different than a regular rod. To cast, hold the rod and press your right mouse button. To reel, press your left mouse button. Reeling pulls in the lure/bobber towards you until it resets back onto your rod. Reeling while the lure is still in the air is faster than in the water or with a fish on the hook. Time your casts correctly and you'll be sure to hit your mark.

Spoiler:

To catch a fish mob, cast out your line and try to make it land near a fish. A fish will notice any nearby lure, but will not immediately be attracted to it (unless your a lucky). To raise the attraction of the fish, gently reel the lure in (this consists of lightly tapping/pressing the left mouse button.) If you reel in too quickly (hold the left mouse button too long), the fish's attraction will go back down. If too much time passes, the fish will ignore the lure, and just swim away. Fish do remember if a lure has been nearby recently so keep casting and you'll eventually get the fish's attention.

Spoiler:

If you time your reeling right, the fish will now be attracted. This sets up for the next phase: hooking. Once a fish is attracted, it will follow the lure. Continue gently reeling to raise your chance at hooking the fish. Again, if too much time passes, the fish will stop being attracted and will swim away. If you are lucky, the fish will attach to the lure. Reel the fish close enough to you to finally catch it.

You now have your own fish. Like wolves, ocelots, and horses, fish will remember it's owner and will not despawn. Unlike those other tameable mobs, fish won't follow you. You may place your fish in your own pool or pond and pick it back up with a fish net.

Spoiler:

You can also turn your fish into raw fish meat and cook it into a furnace.

You can also breed caught fish with fish flakes. To make fish flakes, combine cooked fish meat and wheat.

Spoiler:

Lastly, you can place your fish into item frames and show off your collection.

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:
  • Orange
  • Grape
  • Pear
  • Peach
  • Banana
  • Cherry
To find these saplings, use bonemeal on grass blocks. There is a random chance one of these saplings will appear on the grass. After a set amount of time, the fruit sapling will grow into a fruit tree with un-ripe (green) fruit on it. These un-ripe fruit will then ripen over time (turn into the proper color of the fruit) and can now be harvested/broken off the tree. Each tree will be able regrow its fruit as long as no part of it destroyed in any way. New fruit always start out as un-ripe and will not drop the fruit item if harvested early.

FoodCraftory lowers or adjusts the healing amount of every vanilla food item to compensate for the additional food added by the other Craftory Mods. For example, a cooked steak heals 8 food hunger points in vanilla Minecraft. FoodCraftory changes cooked steak to only heal 5 food hunger points, giving you a better incentive to harvest crops, fruit, ect. Configuration is also added to the vanilla food items, so you can set steak, carrots, apples, ect, to heal hunger, saturation, or health to whatever amount you like with the config file. If you are planning to make your own adjustments or need to look up vanilla values for food, a good resource to use is found on the Minecraft wiki: http://www.minecraftwiki.net/wiki/Food

Posted Image

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.

Spoiler:

Basic watercan recipe
Spoiler:

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 /mods/ folder)
  • 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.
Still crashing? Post an error log so we can see and try to help you. Don't know how to get an error log? Visit http://www.minecraft...ing-error-logs/ and learn how. I do ask you to please use spoiler tags to prevent elongated posts. If you don't post an error log, I can't help you fix the problem.

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!).

This is indeed a wonderful copy of Rune Factory so far. I can see you adding all the weapons, armor, upgrading of those things, new drops (so that you can collect those elemental pieces for weapons) as well as the medicine and cooking portions, if you wanted.

By the way, what texture pack are you using?

Very nice mod, Can you cook the fishies? I'd install the runecraftory but i'm pretty sure it'll conflict with Pam's Harvest Craft

Yes, you can cook them. :)

As for compatibility, yes I'm afraid Rune Craftory will conflict with other farming mods since Block Tallgrass is edited to drop new seeds.

Just a suggestion, but you should make it compatible with ItemSpriteApi or something similar that use unlimited item sprites so that I (and probably countless other people) won't have to erase some other mods just to fit this one in. Again, just a suggestion, since I don't know the difficulty of doing this.

Yes, the sprite textures will appear in 16x texture packs but at a reduced quality since the original textures are 32x. But everything functions the same way unless there is an issue I'm not aware of yet.

I really like the look of this, but it's a shame the 'crop irrigation' via nearby water would no longer work if this mod is installed.  I like to construct Strongholds, build railroad & irrigation systems and mine for resources as much as I like farming, and with the size of the fields I envision (what with all the new crop types) I'd be watering all day long.

Still, a remarkable mod!
