Automated tree-farm in Minecraft?

  • Automated tree-farm in Minecraft? Lasse V. Karlsen

    I've seen a few videoes where people create near (or completely) automated tree farms in Minecraft, so I thought I'd give it a go.

    I'm playing 1.7.3 beta SMP though, no mods (at least none that alter game behavior.)

    One of the things I saw one guy had made was something that automated planting a tree, and then automated applying a bonemeal, before finally he automated flooding the area with water to destroy the tree and gather the trunk items.

    One thing at a time.

    My question is thus this:

    • Is it possible to automate the "plant a sapling" part?

    I tried the following:

    1. I set out a dispenser, pointed towards a block of dirt, but at the same level as the dirt-block. In other words, the "hole" in the dispenser was not visible, and led directly into the dirt-block
    2. I set out the dispenser, pointing towards the dirt-block, but one level above the dirt-block

    In both cases, when powered, a sapling item was dropped on top of the dirt-block. I assume that when the dispenser "submerged" at the same level as the dirt-block dispensed a sapling, it floated to the top due to the same rules that makes item float to the top of newly placed blocks.

    So, is this part even possible without a mod?

  • As far as I know it is impossible without using a mod, but maybe in some future release... I hope so.

  • LivingForest is a bukkit mod that I use and I'm quite happy with it. It does tree planting, fast growth, and a favorite of mine for landscaping is it allows you to tweak the spawn rate of "big" trees.

  • I'm using a 3x3 MultiFarm and it works for the most part I think. But I left it idle and it seems to have glitched or my understanding is not correct. When it initially placed the bog earth, it left blocks of water which confused me until I read that a block of water needs to be touching (diagonals count) every block of bog earth in order to produce peat bog. But when I came back to it, everything was bog earth and there was no water block. I observed it for a while and it still didn't create the blocks of water. I then destroyed some of the bog earth blocks and it finally placed some blocks

  • , and masteries; just focus on Varus dishing out as much raw damage as possible. We can all adjust when we play. Feel free to use any/all of the following assumptions: Level 18 Anything that retains its stacks can be fully stacked, since that's your presumption when you acquire it. Rageblade, for instance, does not retain its stacks, so don't presume it would be stacked in any given engagement No runes or masteries. Any adjustments from the obvious case of an offensively-specialized set are unlikely to change your item build around. The short version: Which 4 items give Varus the greatest damage

  • (I'm using the latest DireWolf20 pack so I am happy to use any items contained in those mods.) I have a multi-block tree farm which is working well to provide me with wood/charcoal but it will run out of dirt and fertiliser. I have plenty of both on my AE system. What can I use that will pull items out of my AE network as and when they are required? I suspect that logistical pipes can fill an inventory if it will take the items but I'm not exactly sure how this works or whether that will work with AE?? Any hints appreciated!

  • in a different pattern. (same seed, but different server) Temporarily, I added a 3rd plugin, so that I can make NPC Villages on-demand. Can you suggest one of these solutions? Replace my 3rd plugin...I have replaced my Vanilla server with a Bukkit server and installed (only) 2 plugins: WorldEdit and WorldGuard. Existing villages are still there, but new Villages are not generated. I know this is the case because I used a village finder to find villages, and I know it works right because I tested it on Vanilla and it was tested out as accurate. But now when I use the village finder and visit

  • Setting up Sturdy Shedinja Niet the Dark Absol

    is pretty much essential there. Additionally, Fake Out is a major problem, so I plan on having the Study 'mon being Sawk, with Quick Guard to block that threat. Shedinja will need Safety Goggles to survive... will cause self-destruction. Now, here is another thing to consider: When you see Smeargle lead, you expect Dark Void, right? It's obvious, surely. So... you act accordingly. Fake Out if you have it (which Quick Guard can block) and try to take out the Smeargle (which Focus Sash will interrupt). Trouble is, Smeargle isn't exactly the fastest thing out there. That's why I'm here. What can I do

  • In Reus, the fertility boosts say that they give a greater chance to get better aspects on a source. When I use a level 1 Fertility Boost on a patch and then use a level 1 Leaf Aspect, it gives a 100% chance of a Potent Leaf Aspect. However, when I use a level 2 Fertility Boost and a level 2 Leaf Aspect, I do not get 100% chance for a Greater Leaf Aspect. So what is the chance? No Fertility...% Potent Level 2 Aspect: Same as Level 2 Fertility Boost? Level 3 Aspect: ??? Side note: I am aware that fertility boosts make the aspects better. An aspect given on a patch with a fertility boost
