Since villagers now harvest crops, and need to be willing to breed I've had to go to a PC 1.8 infinite breeder design. It seems to work, but the farmer villager isn't breaking / replanting crops like on the PC edition. I know he had an empty inventory when I spawned him, and I saw him throwing potatoes to other villagers to feed them (the only crop in my farm) so I know he had to have harvested them, but I didn't see him actually pick them up or replant them.
Am I missing something here, or does the farming mechanic work sans the harvesting / replanting animations?
Woah woah woah. Villagers can actually plant crops now? Why don't I know about this!?!?
yes in xbox360 they had "The Ultimate Update" is what Mojang is calling it it has bunnies, guardians, endermites, and villagers take stuff and put it in their "inventory" and replant.
so jesseb342 you have a glitch in the game.
