Start guide (getting started and basic guide on how mod works):
- First you find the essence ore which can be found layer 16 and below, these can be mined by any pickaxe.
- That will give you Magic Essence which can be crafted to 1 of 7 new crops.
- Once planted and fully grown you may harvest these crops giving you an food item plus 1-3 seeds and a rare chance of another Magic essence.
- Once you have collected enough magical essence they can be crafted into larger essence which can then be crafted into Magic seeds e.g. Coal or Diamond.
- These can then be gown and once fully grown will give a chance of dropping an essence of that crow and 1-3 more seeds.
- Once you have enough essence to make an item you can craft it.
- Hopefully near end game you will have a field of every time of crop making you lots of diamonds or any other item.
- All food items heal for 2 hunger points.
- There is a config file so you can change any ID’s that are conflicting.
- The 18 blocks are meta data block and only take up 2 ID’s.
- The magical crops do give out particles so if you have a lot can it’s causing lag turn them off.
- Glowstone crops emit a light source.
