I used this mod with my friend quite awhiles back, like in 1.4.? During that time, when you got Harvestcraft you couldn't turn a corner without finding some sort of food. When I installed it again on our server yesterday I saw nothing, and I thought for sure the generation wasn't working properly. I just now went and flew around on my single player to confirm that indeed, there was no generation. Imagine my surprise when I did find some crops! They are definitely more sparse now. But I love a good challenge, and I admit back then we had access to so many foods it was pretty overwhelming! Haha, not anymore!
Really fantastic mod. I look forward to playing with it again.
So I've been playing with Growthcraft on a server. One thing about it that really made me happy - apples fall from the trees when they are ripe. Now why does this make me happy? It's because my gathering golem from Thaumcraft can grab them and store them away. It would be nice if there was a way you could make the fruit trees drop their fruits when ripe. I ask this only because I tend to forget to harvest them amongst all the other mods I'm playing with on a server. So if you can add that, it's be nice. If not, then that's fine. Not gonna make stop playing with this mod or anything.
Also, I tested and can confirm that golems will harvest your fruit trees.... but they actually break the fruit as a whole so that it can't grow back. They also don't seem to instantly recognize the mature fruit as harvestable. Might just be golems being sluggish and derpy (it amuses me from time to time heh).
And one more thing - and feel free to say no, but there are four crops that have to be turned into seeds before they can be planted again. Might be more, I haven't tested the bamboo shoot, but anyway, the four I'm talking about are Seaweed, Rice, Cranberry and White Mushroom. I remember when all the crops had to be planed by seed. Nothing wrong with that and it makes sense. The thing is that golems can't replant if the harvested crops have to be turned into seeds first. I've been manually harvesting and planting all crops up to this point, but yesterday, I felt that some form of automation needs to happen. So if you can make it so that all crops can be replanted whether by seed or harvested crop, that'd be awesome.
Again, these are just suggestions I've had for a while now. Take them or leave them, I'll still be using this mod cause FOOOOOOOOOOOD VARIETY!!! \o/
Can someone send me the link for 1.6.4 version because when I try to click on the link it says that it is not available so if someone can send me a site that works for 1.6.4 I would really appreciate it
