Regrowth

This is now my second play through of what I consider the best mod pack to be introduced to Minecraft.

Regrowth is a modpack all about very slow and steady progression from scant resources. Your overall mission is to revitalize the world, to bring it back to life. There is no plant life. No passive mobs will spawn outside of squid. There are no ores in the ground, no villages to plunder. You have only two biomes; wasteland and ocean.



I run through the day by punching the dead trees which drop planks (not logs), sticks, and rarely charcoal and wood ash. Punching the slate drops flint. Using the sticks and flint I can make rudimentary tools, a pick, sword, hatchet, shovel, and mattock.

I spend the rest of the day punching dead grass. This occasionally drops wheat seeds, belladonna seeds (used in witchery), pasture seeds (grows grass on dirt), clay, bonemeal, and floral fertilizer.

I have to stay very close to spawn because there's no map and it will be a long time before I can afford to waste string to make a bed and set my spawn.

As night draws I burrow underground and start a basic Tinker's Construct set up to make use of the night. Turning in my quests I'm awarded with some extra bonemeal, 12 apples (my only food right now), and a curved guard stencil. The curved guard stencil is quite nice because it's a "secret" stencil that can not be made and can normally only be found in villager chests. Thus if I lose it, I'll never be able to get another.

Re: Regrowth

I love extremely difficult barely surviving scenarios where you have to make everything from scratch. That's why I liked Skygrid so much.

Interested in this!

Re: Regrowth

Thanks for the feedback. Knowing one or two people are actually interested has encouraged me to update.

( Click to show/hide )
A neat trick to see if its daytime yet while puttering around in my hole in the ground is to search for the clock in NEI. The image shows the correct time which is great because it'll be forever and a day before I have gold and redstone to spare for a clock.



When day comes along I use it to make a beacon so I can find my hole. I spend the day clearing dead trees for the planks and sticks.



As night comes along I go back into hiding. The quest book starts leading me towards gathering dirt for farming and building materials.



Thankfully Tinker's Construct makes it easy to repair your tools and weapons.



With fully repaired tools I can switch out the parts used to make them now that I have time to settle down and I'm not trying to craft tools on the fly. The only other renewable materials available to me right now besides flint and wood are bone and stone. I retire my hatchet since the mattock is basically an axe that can also till dirt like a hoe. Replace the wooden handles on all my tools with bone handles as the durability is slightly better (from 1x to 1.08x). I make use of the curved guard pattern and make a flint cutlass to replace my flint broadsword, the attack damage is the same but the cutlass also has a random chance to do critical damage. Lastly I replace the wood binding on my pick with a stone binding granting it a very slight stonebound modifier. Stonebound tools mine stone slightly faster as they lose durability.



I use my clay to make a clay bucket since I don't have access to iron. Clay buckets work just the same but are only a one-time use item if you use them on lava.



I've also set up some super crafting frames. You can set them with a crafting recipe and it will automatically craft them with a click if you have the items in your inventory.



Now that the sun is rising again I need to make crops to start farming. Farming is a major aspect in this modpack and you can't plant any seeds without the use of crop sticks.



Crops will allow fully mature plants to spread to adjacent crop sticks. As plants spread from one crop to another they have a chance of improving. You may find like seeds that wont stack. That's because every seed has three hidden statistics; Growth, Gain, and Strength. Growth is the speed at which a plant matures. Gain is the amount you gain when you harvest a plant. Strength is a measure of how resistant the plant will be to weeds. Tomorrow we'll unlock a quest that will allow us to analyze seeds to see these hidden stats.

Re: Regrowth

Yes, all the normal ones plus ender minis, dire wolves, fallen knights, wither witches, and concussion creepers.

---------- Post added at 07:55 PM ---------- Previous post was at 05:14 AM ----------

One way to create new plants is to cross breed two existing plants. The first plants that are available to me is by crossbreeding potatoes and belladonna to create mandrake and crossbreeding carrots and wheat to make sugarcane.



Instead of throwing away my extra seeds I made some compost bins. These turn any plant matter put into them into compost. Combining compost and dirt creates garden soil. Garden soil works like normal farm land but doesn't need to be irrigated with water and can't be trampled.



Elsewhere I've placed down a plot of dirt and used one of the pasture seeds on it that I got through punching dead grass. This turns dirt blocks into grass blocks. By using the floral fertilizer on the grass blocks I can spawn Botania's mystical flowers. Right now the only thing I can do is to grind these into dyes with a pestle and mortar.



Combining my new resources of mandrake and green dye with wood ash and bone meal I can craft mutandis. Mutandis will turn one random plant into and other random plant.



I bonemeal the grass blocks to create tall grass and use the mutandis on the tall grass, collecting any tree saplings I come across. Now I have access to infinite wood and charcoal. The first thing I craft is some wood armor to improve my defense a bit.



Aren't I swanky?

Re: Regrowth

This is very fascinating, but like I said before I can't run this modpack with my comp.
So I'll just make a joke then leave:

Re: Regrowth

Today was a lot of work on the farm.

I made a seed analyzer which allows me to see those hidden stats on seeds. You want to try to breed each seed to its highest point; 10/10/10.



I also made a chisel. The chisel allows you to turn one block into a bunch of other blocks, purely aesthetic.



I did that so I could start on my first building, a small potting shed to store my seeds, crops, and equipment. Roof pending.



Inside I switched to making drawers. Drawers store only like items, up to 4 stacks per item (can be upgraded) and display the item they hold. With a right click you store the item you're holding. A double right click puts away all of the same item everywhere in your inventory. A left click pulls out a stack of the item and a shift-left click pulls out 1 item.



I also did four successful crossbreeds tonight. I now have pumpkins, melons, barley, and water artichokes.

I've been asking this sort of question ever since I found out what mods do.
I think the real answer would have to be along the lines of personal taste; for instance, even the RU Crew seem divided in 2 basic camps:

Nature lovers, who want mods to add new mobs, biomes, flowers, etc.
and
Technology buffs, who love all things tech / tool related.

Although I have to give Mojang some credit for adding in some 'mod' content catering to both sides; new flowers, trees, animals, and biomes for nature lovers, and lots of tech additions like the comparators, pressure plates, and photo cells for the tech buffs.

I know I left out a lot of things but I just wanted to point out that they're trying.
Mods still do it way better though in my opinion.

Re: Regrowth

I did a lot of work crossbreeding plants today. It's actually all I focused on. I wanted to get the nine food items from the magical crops mod started. Food is your most important defense. This will jump me to the second highest food available to me in this pack. It will fill six hunger bars, give me 5 saturation, and 5 seconds regen. Since crafting one requires nine different items, I got to set up my first Super Crafting Frame.



Now I just need to get those crops all to 10/10/10. It's a decent start to a farm:



I think tomorrow I'll get started on some Botania which means I'll need to go Enderman hunting.

Re: Regrowth

DB doesn't like thing? Much surprise. :P

Still working on strengthening all of my current crops into 10/10/10.

By making a Lexica Botania and using that in tandem with the Quest Book I can clearly see how my next path progresses.



My first step is to put four mystical white petals and a seed into a petal apothecary which nets me a single pure daisy.



By surrounding a pure daisy with logs it will transform the logs into livingwood. By surrounding the daisy with stone it will turn the stone into livingrock.







I then use the petal apothecary to craft dayblooms and hydroangeas. These flowers will generate mana. I use mana spreaders to collect and transport the mana and mana pools to store the mana. With a Wand of the Forest I can tie the system all together.



Thus the beginnings of my Botania area.

Re: Regrowth

Another change with this pack is that you lose air almost immediately when submerged in water. I changed my kit slightly, replacing my helmet with a snorkel which allows me the normal amount of time underwater.



Now its time to use some of the mana I've been gathering with Botania. By turning in a quest for 12 clay and 10 mystical light grey flowers I'm rewarded with a Clayconia. A Clayconia uses a small amount of mana to turn sand placed nearby into clay. I know have clay as reliable resource.



Also, by through a wheat seed into a mana pool I'll get a mana essence seed.



Essence dust (the crop harvested from mana seeds) is a large part of Botania and I'll be using a lot of it. Unlike any other crop, I've allocated four crops fields for it and crafted a better barrel to store all the essence dust until I need it.



Throwing an ender pearl into the mana pool nets me a mana pearl. Surrounding one with 8 essence dust nets me a weak infusion stone. Claiming that quest also nets me a skeleton soul seed. Now I have unlimited bones and arrows.



I also crossbred seeds to get access to cactus and more importantly cotton for string. String, wool, clay, and cactus are going to open up a lot more interesting options for me.

A wooden snorkel? Is the tube made out of grass?

Re: Regrowth

Sounds incredibly difficult but incredibly rewarding.
As a player that plays to explore and survive, I think it's fantastic.

Re: Regrowth

Alright, time to make use of all the cactus and string. First I swap out the flint full guard for a cactus full guard for my cutlass. Besides determining what type of sword is crafted, the only other thing a guard adds to a weapon is adding any material trait that the material has. It doesn't affect damage or durability. Cactus gives the material trait of "jagged" which means the weapon will do more damage as it takes durability damage. A small upgrade but better than nothing.



String also means a shortbow. The normal Minecraft arrows suck horribly but it's still a reliable ranged weapon.



Also, the string means wool. Now I can replace all of my normal chests with chests from the Improved Chests mod. These can be upgraded in place and can be placed next to each other.



This also means I can start making some inventory management items. First is a Tier 1 bag from the Bagginses mod. Now I can carry all my little used tools on me without cluttering my inventory.



I also make a book binder. This works like a backpack but only for books. the plus is you can read the books inside of it without taking them out of the binder.



Now that those upgrades have been made its time to work my next goal; dyes. While this pack allows you to grow 9 flowers for dyes. The other 7 dyes left out can be crafted with the dye seeds you can make through Botania. To start I need a runic altar which allows you to infused materials with stored mana.



Once the mana requirement is met you'll see lightning effects. Throw a livingrock on top and right-click with your wand and presto.



The farm now with the 9 flowers and dye seeds added to it:

Started the very beginnings of breeding bees and fish.





I also harvested some oysters. By placing sand in them they'll eventually convert the sand to pearls.



---------- Post added 06-12-2015 at 10:05 PM ---------- Previous post was 06-10-2015 at 08:24 PM ----------

Currently, all of my bees are Modest bees. They're the only ones who can survive the hot, arid climate of wasteland biomes that I have access to. There's not much I can do with them besides continue to breed them to gather a large storage of modest drones and modest cones. I'm also forced to use beehouses as the next step up requires bronze and some machinery to create.

I can't construct a suitable fish tank to breed fish in yet as it requires aluminum and iron. My oysters are doing a great job though and occasionally among the pearls harvested is an ender pearl. With those I'm able to make ender seeds in Botania's runic alter. Now I wont lack for ender pearls any longer.



I've also crossbred an essence seed with a sugarcane seed resulting in a nature seed. The nature essence I harvest from these crops allow me to make things like vines and lily pads. Most importantly though, they also allow me to make mossy cobblestone.



Nine mossy cobblestone in a crafting grid makes a ball of moss which is my first tool modifier available to me. Adding moss to your weapons and tools gives them the ability to slowly regenerate damage which means less repairing of tools. While my final set of Tinker's Construct tools wont have this modifier on them, it's great for the shirt term.



By the way, I found that the best place to find dirt is in beach biomes.



Using the flowers I crossbred two days ago I was able to crossbreed a full set of 16 different mystical flowers for Botania. Once these are bred up to 10/10/10 I'll be able to get much deeper into mana generation.

Using that I was able to go on and start my path to copper. By turning in this repeatable quest four times:



I had enough to craft a copper seed on my runic altar,





Using the same tactic I was able to improve my fuel source and make coal seeds as well. The new farm:
