Tips for crossbreeding, farming.


If you're about to make hops/coffee beans you may wonder how it's done; you have to crossbreed plants, which isn't necessarily done with 2 different kind of plants.

Steps:

  1. Make 3 tilled blocks right next to each other.
  2. Put 1 crop in side spaces.
  3. Put 2 crop sticks in the middle space. (You'll notice the difference).
  4. Plant 2 seeds on the side spaces.


Additional info:

  1. You may want to set up a crop-matron near the crossbreeding area since not all crossbreedings give you a new type of plant, so you'll have a huge area which is almost impossible to be taken care of manually.
  2. Crop-matrons do not fertilize, hydrate or put weed-ex on the areas where there are no plants (crossbreeder areas are just like this), so you have to manually put these on the crossbreeder areas.
  3. Always make sure that no weeds grow near your plants and that they are always weed-ex'd.
  4. Know what weeds look like so you can manually get rid of them if needed.
  5. Weed-ex does not kill existing weeds, it only prevents them from appearing.
  6. After you harvested a tile where you have crossbred and you want to crossbreed there again make sure to place crops there again, since after plant starts to grow on the crossbreeding area, they turn into normal crops.
  7. Same kind of plants can make different kinds of plants (e.g. wheat crossbred with wheat can make cocoa).
  8. Crossbred plants only start to appear after the plants right next to it are fully grown if it appears before it then it's either only a copy of the one that is already fully grown, or is weed.

(Don't know for sure but after I left an area where I farmed and came back I didn't see the plants currently there,'they only appeared when they changed state, may be a bug on my client though.)

Information below contains the type of plants that exist currently:

These are a list of plants and flowers that can be cross-bred
 at the current moment, what they drop and special conditions
 etc. Please note that although roses and dandelions can be 
 found in the wild, (Lepo's notes >>) "To plant Roses and 
 Dandelions from their "raw" (flower-form) into the seed bag,
 you must have 4 of either in your hand, and high quality light
 conditions, to plant. If you have fewer than 4 in hand, or it
 is dark, then they will not plant." Otherwise you need to 
 cross-breed, and PLEASE pay attention to the special conditions
 of ALL plants. They WILL NOT grow if the conditions aren't met.

Cropnalyzers are used to identify seed bags that have dropped.
 You must analyze ALL the seed bags to find out what they are
 and to find out the statistics of each seed bag. NO seed bags
 have the same stats even if they are both the same plant hence
 why they must all be analyzed separately. Trying to use a
 cropnalyzer on a plant that has just been cross-bred will not
 tell you anything. You MUST get the seed bags from the plant 
 first to find out what it is...normal seeds do nothing.

Farming with crops:

Steps:

  1. Put a crop in a tilled spot.
  2. Plant seeds in it.
  3. Wait for the plants to grow.
  4. Two options:
    • Left click to destroy it (also has a chance of dropping a seed bag).
    • Right click to harvest it (this won't destroy the plant, only turn it to stage 0).


Seed bags:

To get them, destroy a crop tile with a mature plant:

- (which is crossbred, or was already planted from a seed bag, a seed bag will drop)

- (if you destroy a plant you didn't plant from a seed bag or wasn't crossbred a seed bag can drop)

If it was a replanted plant you'll receive a bag with the appropriate name will drop, if not then an unknown seed bag will drop which you have to analyze using a cropnalyzer.

Analyzing:

Put an energy source in the upper right corner of the cropnalyzer.

  1. Put in an unknown seed bag in upper left corner and the type of the plant will appear.
  2. Put in a seed bag with a name of plant in upper left corner and it's tier/discoverer will appear.
  3. Put in the bag a 3rd time and it shows you the uses of that plant.
  4. Put in the bag one last time to receive additional information about other traits of plants (Growth, Gain, Resistance).

The traits have a specific level which ranges from 0-31.
