I have just started into making mods and i had a great idea!
Farmimg righ now is lame, all you do is grow and harvest the crops so you can only eat it.
Thats why i chose
The Farming Mod
first of all i would add tractors, planters, plow, conbines and more.
you could tame cows and they could like have babies but to keep them alive you would have to feed them
animals dont trample farmland so they cant wreck your massive feilds.
spray your farmland before plantting to get arid of weeds in the crop duster(plane) you would drop a bomb that would spread spray. im goin to ask flan about that.
put seeds in the planter and hook it up to a tractor so then you get in the tractor and go plant really quicklly. also you would need the water right beside the felids because i would make it so that rain is less annoying and its more often and also it gives water to the crops.
i have lots more planned but like i said Im just starting so i could use help and suggesrtions
Honestly? Start with something simpler. Without a solid background of Java, or another C-based language, you're not going to get anywhere with this. This is extremely advanced, and someone as new as you doesn't have a hope in hell of accomplishing it.
That said, there's nothing stopping you from learning with simpler things and working your way up to this.
If you can get it to work with other farming mod that would be great so we can plant more then melons,pumkins,and wheat(Mostly so we can plant corn,tomatos,potatos and breed more animals like sheep,chickens,and pigs)and much more!!!!!!!I like the crops in the game as much as the next guy.Plus minecraft will have even more people looking into buying the game and start downloading all the farming mods! :smile.gif:
oh and for the combine and tractors if you give brands like for ex(john deere,case,new holland,Massy Ferguson,etc...)
and throw in some pick-ups and rigs to for ex(dodge,ford,chevy,kenwoth,mack,etc...)
if the combines could make square bales that you can put in lets say a barn or in hay stack that would be so cool
at least have diffrent updates
if you catch my drift
