[1.95+SMP]HelperCrops v4.0 - Symbiosis for fun and profit.

This mod adds two new crops that cannot be harvested but make tending other crops easier. As usual, the source is included.

Soybean: Fixes nitrogen.

Spoiler Spoiler

As long as it is planted, it will slowly fertilize its own tile and the four adjacent ones.

Spoiler Spoiler

It won't finish growing until its own tile is reasonably fertilized.

Spoiler Spoiler

Its own tile will be fertilized at twice the rate it's depleted. Adjacent tiles which are less-fertilized will be fertilized at the same rate they are depleted. This effect can stack up to 6x depletion (2x from the center crop, 1x from each adjacent crop), for a net gain of 5x the depletion rate.


Waterroot: Actively seeks water.

Spoiler Spoiler

As long as it is planted, it will slowly water its own tile and the four adjacent ones.

Spoiler Spoiler

It won't finish growing until its own tile is reasonably damp.

Spoiler Spoiler

The crop will only be able to find water if there is some in the first few blocks below the crop.

Spoiler Spoiler

Its own tile will be watered at twice the rate it's depleted. Adjacent tiles which are drier will be watered at the same rate they are depleted. This effect can stack up to 6x depletion (2x from the center crop, 1x from each adjacent crop), for a net gain of 5x the depletion rate.


General tip:

Spoiler Spoiler

Destroying and replacing a crop block will reset its water and fertilizer storage. If you want to prepare a tile by temporarily planting Waterroot and/or Soybeans there, be careful to not destroy the crop block while replanting!


Installing:
Place HelperCrops_VERSION.zip in your mods/ folder. No need to start a new world, just restart Minecraft and crossbreed until you get them.

If you don't like the sprites, please, send me new ones! Also, if there's interest and appropriate sprites, I might add minor food items as the product of the plants.

Version history:
v1: Initial release
v2: Integrated sprite sheet.
v3.0 - Upgraded all of my CropCards:
  • Textures are now preloaded to reduce visual gitches.
  • CropIDs are explicitly set to 100+ to ensure future save compatibility. (THIS BREAKS OLD SAVES! You can fix your save, at least until something else steals the old IDs, if you change the IDs in config/DebugCrop.cfg. You'll have to experiment to find the IDs each crop was using; the old IDs were 16-19, with DebugCrop being the only constant at 16.)
  • Synchronized version numbers, at least for now.
  • Version number is now in the file name, so you'll be able to obtain copies of and see download counts for any version 3.0+.
  • Dropped the z from the file name, as I figured out how to ask ModLoader to load me after IC2.

v3.1: Actually creating the config file so it can be edited is probably slightly useful...
v3.2: Updated all my addons to IC2 v1.90. Also fixed my config file handling, again. Old settings are going to be lost, but since it wasn't managing to respect them anyway, that's not so bad.
v3.3: Updated all my addons to IC2 v1.95. Just a straight recompile on the new version.
v4.0: Added SMP support to all my addons.

The replacement spritesheet isn't needed, see your other topic asking on how to make custom spritesheets

Yeah, I've been working on that (distractedly) since I saw your reply. Uploading a new version now.

This is quite nice! Will surely be a help.

The IC2 forums could really use a lot more of [REDACTED], [DATA EXPUNGED] and ████████.

I'm in a so called "after-school". It's freaking fantastic and nowhere near as boring as normal school!

Where do you actually get these new crops? Is it necessary to create a new world to be able to find them?

You have a bad version of Forge, try 3.3.7.135 (latest recommended).

Specific applicable changelog entry on Forge build 133: "Updated to FML #135 {Fixed ModList rendering issue, and incorrect arument on crafting hook}" (emphasis mine).

Including in my modpack

Hello! I'd love to include this addon in my modpack, it'd be great if I could.

Do I have your permission to do so? Judging by your lack of say in the OP I assume you're ok with it but I'm asking for courtesy more than anything :)

screenshots/obtaining crops

First: you can obtain these crops by crossbreeding.
Second: I have breed soybeans, and hopefully I will have waterroot soon. Would it be alright with you if I posted screenshots, funnyman?
just figured I'd ask in case you wanted it to be a secret or something.
