    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:

    http://minecraft.curseforge.com/mc-mods/232150-magical-crops-core

    Description: Give you the standard base mod, grow, harvest and craft resources, with some extras like furnaces.


    Magical Crops 4.0.0: Armoury:

    http://minecraft.curseforge.com/mc-mods/232149-magical-crops-armoury

    Description: Adds Accio, Crucio, Imperio and Zivicio armour, weapons and tools. Requires Magical Crops 4: Core.


    Magical Crops 4.0.0: Decorative:

    http://minecraft.curseforge.com/mc-mods/232182-magical-crops-decorative

    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. 1.7.10, good.
    2. Grow your own minerals? Hmm, not my usual fare, but I'll give it a fair hearing.
    3. Glad he describes things up top. Lot of mods don't give you an overview of what they heck they do.
    4. Download button's up top too. Perfect. I can think of a couple other mods that could learn from this style.
    5. Hmm, overlaps some mods I've already got in my pack, that's good. Hope they all play nicely together.
    6. 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.
    7. ... where's the screenshots?
    8. Not under the spoiler.
    9. Not linked anywhere I can see. No links to a wiki (note: links to wiki are substandard, but at least would be something).
    10. 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.
    11. Seriously? The only screenshot is in the banner? What the hell?
    12. 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.
    13. 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.

    Quote from Zsashas»

    ...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.

    So after installing the latest public beta (Public Beta 1) - all my farms which used crops and Farming Stations broke. I believe the problem was that seeds replant themselves, so I'm going to test it. You think you could address this in the next build?


    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.

    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...

    http://www.minecraftforum.net/forums/mapping-and-modding/minecraft-mods/1291655-reikas-mods-tech-worldgen-civilization-and-more?page=881


    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.

    Small update, I am working on a mutation/cross breed aspect of Magical crops, so instead of crafting the seeds you grow and breed/mutate crops to get you the seeds, the crafting seeds option will still be a configurable option don't worry.
