This is a semi rough draft of a tractor mod I have in development.
This mod will harvest and drop the plants and sometimes the seeds of any plant from default farming and farming plus

I am working on getting it to place the seeds and have them grow, I can place the seeds currently, but they wont grow.

here is a gif of the mod in action. https://giphy.com/gifs/10GKo0anlj60bS

Let me know if you have any suggestions or would like your farming mod supported

It'd be pretty awesome if you actually ride the tractor. My students were actually just asking me about a mod for that :D

Very nice, but if it was bigger would be awesome.Maybe in the future u could create an entire set of farming machines,one to irrigate,other to harvest,other to prepare the soil, and so on

There is already tons of code out there for vehicles so the driving of the tractor shouldn't be too hard but I think the hard part would be driving it and making the crops be harvested when you drive over them. I do know carts can have storage so maybe the tractor would pull a cart? Just ideas.

Thanks so much for even thinking about this!

that would definitely get the carts to have a better use :) so we make a tractor that you drive over the nodes and harvest them and put the drops inside the cart .... sounds feasible
