*I WILL NOT UPDATE THE MOD ANY FURTHER ON NEXUSMODS, PLEASE GO HERE ON THE CHUCKLEFISH FORUMS IF YOU WANT THE LATEST VERSIONS*

To start farming ores, craft a farm console with 5 copper bars, 5 iron bars and 50 pixels.
Use the farm console to craft the seeds, you cannot get them otherwise.

The cost of making a seed is 15 bars of the respective resource, and some pixels.

Every plant takes 10 - 14 minutes to grow completely (5 - 7 minutes per stage)

A few points for people that have problems with how I balanced the mod:
  • The seeds are expensive for a reason. Once you have one seed, you can keep planting and harvesting to get a huge field of crops that will give you high amount of ore
  • The plant drops are not low. They drop the same as any vanilla plant, but with a 3% higher chance for each outcome. There is really no reason to complain.
  • The growth time for each plant is significantly lower than any other vanilla plant, so you can plant and harvest much faster, allowing you to make your over-powered ore farm that much faster. (This really is unfair but I kept getting complaints about drop rates)
  • Installation:
    Just move the folder in the .rar file to your "mods" folder
    (SteamSteamAppscommonStarboundmods)

    If you have compact crops installed, download this and move the folder inside to your mods folder

    If you have persistent farmables installed, download this and move the folder inside to your mods folder

    If you encounter a glitch or think that the recipes are unbalanced, please tell me about it so i can fix it

    If you have any suggestions, please tell me about those too so i can make this mod even better :D


    Changelog:

    [list]
  • New Sprites!
  • Solarium plants are now visible
  • No more annoying underscores in files or folders

(For changes in other versions, refer to the changelog that comes with the mod)

The new sprites look like this! :


The plants for each biome are like this (If they don't appear on the chart, no plants spawn there):


I might add more plants later if I can think of anything.
