While taking some time to think about Albs plans for a new plant system in which he mentioned that Red stone farming might be a possibility i got an idea.
IRL some plants have the ability to grow Crystal like structures. (Cant find my AP Biology Notes >.<)
I apologize for not being able to show my sources but i know that some of these crystals have been used in advanced computer chips.
so here is what i am getting at.
i believe that if red stone farming was implemented that it would become very over powered and horridly Nerfed.
so instead of direct red stone farming why not grow crystals as a substitute?
