Magical Crops 4 has gone modular, this means you can mix and match parts of the mod you want and don't without going through hundreds of config options.
Magical Crops 4.0.0: Core:
Description: Give you the standard base mod, grow, harvest and craft resources, with some extras like furnaces.
Magical Crops 4.0.0: Armoury:
Description: Adds Accio, Crucio, Imperio and Zivicio armour, weapons and tools. Requires Magical Crops 4: Core.
Magical Crops 4.0.0: Decorative:
Description: Adds all decorative blocks which can be made from essence. Requires Magical Crops 4: Core.
These won't be compatible with older Magical Crops 4 versions and lower.

I'm putting together my newest Minecraft build and debating about making my first public mod pack. Kinda going through a list of recommended mods, trying to figure out which ones might work with the style I have in mind.
My thoughts as I looked at your original post went like this:
- 1.7.10, good.
- Grow your own minerals? Hmm, not my usual fare, but I'll give it a fair hearing.
- Glad he describes things up top. Lot of mods don't give you an overview of what they heck they do.
- Download button's up top too. Perfect. I can think of a couple other mods that could learn from this style.
- Hmm, overlaps some mods I've already got in my pack, that's good. Hope they all play nicely together.
- Several plants already covered by HarvestCraft. I've discarded other mods for being too much of a clash stylistically... guess it'll come down to the screenshots as to whether I even give this a try.
- ... where's the screenshots?
- Not under the spoiler.
- Not linked anywhere I can see. No links to a wiki (note: links to wiki are substandard, but at least would be something).
- He's got Patreon and Paypal and 183 pages, it's clearly a big enough mod to have gotten a substantial following, there's gotta be screenshots around here somewhere.
- Seriously? The only screenshot is in the banner? What the hell?
- Yeah. That looks to be it. Okay then. You have a mod that clearly adds a lot of content to the game, but a thread that doesn't in any way show how that content is added or how this mod differs from any other grow-your-own-minerals mod. I see no reason to even bother installing the mod; I'm out of here.
- Really ought to let the mod creator know why I didn't give his mod a shot. It's basic but maybe he just doesn't understand how important screenshots are in visual-focused players deciding whether or not to install a mod, let alone try to troubleshoot it as part of a larger mod pack.
So that's why I'm here posting this. I will not be trying your mod until such time as I run across it again and find that you have added suitable screenshots to demonstrate your product. Doesn't have to be a lot of pictures if they're good pictures with good lighting and give an idea of what I'd be experiencing, but they're a basic requirement of a decent mod post. (Note: Videos are no substitute for pictures. Screenshots are how I decide whether watching a video presentation is worth my time. I'm almost certain that players look first for descriptions, pictures, or videos based on whether they're an audio, visual, or kinesthetic learner, and ideally you would provide for all three.) One of the things that players are doing is trying to decide which mods not to use, and good screenshots give a quick yay/nay to see if it's worth sticking around to find out more about it.
Good luck with your mod, though. I hope I come across it later and get a chance to see what it's like.

...Why are Manasteel and Terrasteel seeds a thing? Those aren't supposed to be a growable thing. Yes, I know Botania is about plant magic, but it's not the same. You shouldn't be able to just grow more Terrasteel. Manasteel is easy enough to make on its own.
Next, I'll find out that Thaumium and Voidmetal have seeds too. <.<
Why not Nether Star and Elementium seeds while we're at it?
You have just shown everyone the reason of why I added configs to disable crops/seeds people don't like, why so angry... it's a mod, nobody here is forcing you to use it.

If you look at the change log before downloading BETA 3 it will tell you that this will happen, remember BETA is BETA things change.

I think there is there is a problem with your recipes. I'm having a crash whenever i press "U" to show uses of an item. Removing magical crops beta 2 fixes the issue.
Mods im using:
Try downgrading/upgrading forge to see if the error goes away.
May 1, 2015Posted in: Minecraft Mods
Update to BETA 2 that bug is fixed.
Apr 24, 2015Posted in: Minecraft Mods
I'm currently looking into it, but if you want a temp fix just go into the configs and change crops replant themselves to false, the farming stations should now work again.

Magical Crops 4 public BETA 2 is available here: http://minecraft.curseforge.com/mc-mods/228834-magical-crops/files

That's a config option, if you don't like it you can turn it off.

In regard to what I have typed before about the business model with Magical Crops. I may not have considered the options and been really disrespectful and so I apologize to Mark. I will handle it more professionally in the future if I need to say something that could escalate to a flame war. It would be terrifying. I have great respect for developers and the time they put into stuff that they share, and if I can be more constructive and smart, I will try.
And the release of Magical Crops 4.0.0 looks great. Hats of to you Mark for the change of heart. I have no idea how long you have planed this.
Actually, I have a question in regard to the update, will this mod gain bugfixes and options added to the open release if you continue to get donations for developing the mod?
That includes from me, waiting for a long time for an update discourages me a bit.
I've been meaning to release the beta for a while now, and it will now stay in open beta, bugfixes and updates will come straight to open beta, the only betas my patreons will get are experimental versions when and if I do them.

I really hate posting anything negative for a mod author to see on here, but dude. DUDE.
Half my current base is built out of decorative blocks from Magical crops. That was a horrific thing to put on the chopping block for the new version. I just don't understand why you're going down this route. You don't need to compete with Thaumcraft or Botania.....we love this mod because of what it is at its core. There wasn't anything wrong with the system you had in place. Tweaking it is awesome - and we love that.....but a complete overhaul? With hundreds of blocks thrown out? I hate to use the term "feature creep", but maybe that's starting to happen?
I'm sorry dude.....I appreciate everything you've done with the mod. It's just super frustrating. So many of us just don't have time to restart our worlds every time a new mod version comes out.
The thing is that it's still in beat, that means many broken things and many things that are still to be re-added, you should always go careful installing a BETA update as it can and will break things. All deco blocks will be added back, I'm just getting the core of the mod done before I add them.

Magical Crops 4, Public beta 1 is available via curseforge or the link on the front page. Enjoy

I am trying to find out how to make my block check if it has an item/itementity above it/on top of it, like this image:
So the blue block would check above it to see if there is the sword, if so then carry on etc.

This mod has been hidden behind a patreon paywall for over six months now. The public releases are sadly outdated (7 months now?) and the only other practically usable versions are only available by downloading madpack 2 or skyfactory 2 on ATLauncher. I understand beta access being given to donators for testing for a few weeks or even a couple months, but half a year or more? Ridiculous. I respect the hard work devs put in and think patreon support can be a great way to show your support, but after such a long time it seems like a blatant cash grab. I'm sure I will be flamed horribly for this but I just wanted to express my great disappointment with the situation and it's unfortunate to have such a great mod pay-to-play only...
There was an interesting little discussion abount this a while back on Reika's thread here...
This is not a cash grab at all, I barely have time to code much any more so Magical crops 4 is a very slow W.I.P and it needs testing every time I change something. In no way am I saying you have to pay to get the BETA, since why would I give it to some packs in the AT Launcher if I wanted to force everyone to pay me to get it. The Patreon it purely support, In no way am I forcing people to support me, it's a bonus for the support and shouldn't be the reason you are supporting me in the first place. If I didn't offer BETA downloads and was still getting the same amount of support would that also be wrong?
Saying that I will be changing how I do BETAs and Magical crops soon as I'm not getting enough feedback that I need to fix the mod. So soon I will be giving Patreon supports the latest BETA and then the BETA before that I will be releasing to the public.
