[mod] More Farming [morefarming]

by sys4 » Tue Feb 28, 2017 23:08

This mod add more things to do farming, make it more realistic, more harder and make it compatible with maidroid core farming.

For now this mod add
  • Wild Carrot --> Carrot
  • Golden Carrot
  • Teosinte --> Corn
  • Corn on the Cob
  • Chicha (Bottle of Ethanol equivalent) (Original texture by TenPlus1 modified by me)

Video with English subtitle that demonstrate moreflowers and morefarming mod separately:

Why another farming mod ?
  • I want to have a more realistic farming mod because when you spawn into a blank world, i think it's a non-sense if you found "usual" vegetables that already populate the world IMHO.
  • So, it's your own work to make your usual vegetables in a slow process of natural selection from harvested seed originate from wild homologous plant.
  • The other existing farming mods (farming_plus, farming_redo) seems to not use the original farming library provided by MT_game (keep in mind I respect this choice). This implies possible incompatibilities with mods that uses original farming mod (ie: maidroid).
  • Anyway i don't criticize the other farming mods (I still use it, even I have make it compatible with this mod), but i wanted to do a mod with a different way of looking at things.

General way of utilization
  1. First of all, found and harvest a wild plant or flower.
  2. With more or less chance, you can get seeds of this plant.
  3. Plant the seeds into a tilled soil.
  4. Leave your plant growing up until maturity.
  5. Harvest it.
  6. If you have chance, you can get seeds from the "usual" counterpart vegetable (rarely) else you get seeds of the original wild plant (by chance too, but more often) or the wild plant herself (the most often) or a rustic vegetable (by chance) or a mix of this items with a maximum of 3 items at once.
  7. Repeat from point 1 (or 3, depending what you get)

A concrete example with Wild Carrot
  1. Found a wild carrot flower and harvest it until you get seeds.
  2. Plant the seeds in a tilled soil (as if you plant wheat seeds).
  3. Leave your plant growing up until maturity.
  4. Harvest it and suppose you get in return only the original wild plant,
  5. re-plant it and harvest it until you get seeds again,
  6. (Repeat from 2 to 3)
  7. Harvest it and this time you get a rustic vegetable (a wild carrot with plenty of roots) and seeds but this time this seeds seems to be different (except if farming_redo is loaded without farming_plus, if this is the case you get directly a carrot).
  8. You eat your wild carrot but his nutritional power is very weak so,
  9. with your new seeds (or carrot from farming_redo) repeat from 2 to 3,
  10. Oh! you harvest a beautiful carrot and in addition you get the same different seeds ! (or carrots from farming_redo)
  11. Good you have a new variety of carrots, you taste it and you realize that his nutritional power is much better than the wild version.

Very nice, I like the selection process that drives to more productive cultivar!

I agree that current farming mods are not ideal. With the default setting you can harvest enough food to survive without farming.

But I don't like the idea to plant and harvest the same plant again and again to get seeds. I will do something similar, but I still think about how the player can get the crops

I understand your point of view, actually the process is similar of what is proposed by the default farming mod, (harvesting until to get a seed) which is not very realistic, i agree. I am open to any other idea and I think of this.
Thanks for your feedback.

Well, I want to make a subgame with a lot of generated stuff. I want to add small houses or farms with a garden where you can find some crops to harvest. Also loot chests where you can find seeds. And of course you can find crops in the wild, mostly berries like strawberries..
