Example File

The current system will find any .json file in ../config/ResourcefulCrops/seeds and attempt to read it. This can be useful for sorting.

Each file must start with a seeds field which contains a list of seeds. After that, specify as many seeds as you want in each file.

    "seeds": [
            "name": "Example",
            "tier": 2,
            "amount": 4,
            "input": "ingotIron",
            "output": "minecraft:rotten_flesh:0#8",
            "color": "#D0CBC7"
            "name": "Example 2",
            "tier": 1,
            "amount": 8,
            "input": "minecraft:iron_ingot:0#0",
            "output": "ingotGold#8",
            "color": "#D0CBC7"
            "name": "Example 3",
            "tier": 4,
            "amount": 6,
            "input": "minecraft:dirt:0#0",
            "output": "minecraft:stone:0#8",
            "color": "#D0CBC7",
            "seedReq": {
                "blockStack": {
                    "name": "minecraft:stone",
                    "meta": 0

Field Explanations

Field Type Default Explanation
seeds List Required List of seeds to add to the game
name String Required Name of the seed. Gets run through the localization process, so if you have a resource loader, you can use unlocalized names.
tier int 1 Tier of the seed. Determines how far into the game the user must be to craft that seed.
amount int 1 Amount of seeds to return in a craft.
input String Required OreDict entry or ItemStack of the item used to craft the seeds. See below for syntax.
output String Required OreDict entry or ItemStack of the item returned from the shard crafting. See below for syntax.
color String Required Hex color of the seeds.

Custom ItemStack

ItemStacks determine the Amount and Meta of an item. The syntax is:


  • domain
    • Generally the modid of the Block/Item. EG: minecraft
  • reg_name
    • The registered name of the Block/Item. EG: wheat_seeds
  • meta
    • The meta data (or damage value) of the Block/Item. EG: 0
  • amount
    • The amount of the item you want to return. For input, this does not matter, but is still required.EG: 4

Custom OreDict

Using the OreDict for input/output is also viable.

For input: shapeType EG: ingotIron

For output: The only difference is defining the size of the output. shapeType#amount EG: ingotIron#8

Data Caching

A cache is kept to ensure that adding/removing crops does not mess with Seed/Shard/Pouch meta’s. The cache is global, meaning across all worlds the user creates.

To reset this cache, delete ResourcefulCropsCache.dat from ../saves/.
