Q: Does this mod have any earlier versions?
A: The mod used to be part of InfiCraft as Flora & Soma. If you rename FloraSoma.txt to Natura.txt and move it out of the InfiCraft folder, it may work. It may not, things have changed.
Installation and Troubleshooting
First, make sure you've downloaded and installed Minecraft Forge. (alternate) Natura goes in the mods folder inside .minecraft or your server's mods folder.
If you're still having problems: run this Error Test and post the results on this thread.
This mod is covered under the Creative Commons 3.0 license. Modpacks are encouraged, feel free to do anything you like with it. I only ask that you enjoy it!
But I read the OP three times through, and I still can't figure out what you mean by "With a few small additions, hunger no longer has to be about hunting animals early game". I see several really cool trees, but don't see anything edible. Also, I can't figure out how it relates to Tinkers Construct (which I've heard of but never used). Is this an add-on for that mod?
They are really cool trees though. Think I'm going to have to check this mod out, if it doesn't require another mod to run.
Tinkers Construct is a great mod that pairs with this ( I've not found out yet either, but it will happen )
There are also more than just trees, there are bushes with new fruits, barley kinda like wheat, and cotton for string and wool. I'm sure I've not found everything that there is to define this mod. The beauty of it is that mDiyo didn't let on what all encompasses this mod, letting you the rare opportunity to discover the possibilities. But, if you look through the config and java files you get a pretty good idea of what you're up against. There's also a multitude of crafting guides that help as well.
