Obtaining

Wild Crops

Crops spawn randomly in the wild, with each individual type spanned out over an 8x8 chunk grid. This means the player will have to explore quite some distance in order to gather every single type of crop. Wild crops only generate from Late Spring to Late Summer, and have a chance to regenerate during those seasons once every year.

Seeds

Harvesting a crop will always drop at least a single seed, as well as increase the player's agriculture skill by 1. The higher the player's agriculture skill, the more likely that a second seed will drop as well, allowing for farm expansion.

Crop Types

Planted crops mimic real life in how long it takes for them to grow before they can be harvested. Note however, that these values have been scaled to fit within the length of a TFC year which by default is only 96 days.

  1. Bell Peppers can be harvested both when the pepper is immature: green, and ripe: red or yellow.
  2. Will survive freezing temperatures while still young.
  3. Very sensitive to the cold. Can die at temperatures as high as 5℃.
  4. Rutabaga completely replaces Onions if the enableNotOnions option is true.
  5. Needs to be planted while the player has an ladder in their hotbar.

Mushroom Farming

Brown Mushrooms and Red Mushrooms may be found growing wild in shady areas, or easily obtained by breaking Leaf Litter below Trees. Once obtained, you can plant them on Dirt in shady areas to grow more (up to 5 in an area). To turn them into Food, craft them with a Knife (before this point they can not decay). Note that Red Mushrooms are poison if not cooked.

Usage

The majority of harvested products from matured crops can be eaten directly by the player, making them a renewable source of food.

Animal Husbandry

Main article: Animal Husbandry

Currently the following cereal products can be used to breed Jungle Fowl, Mouflon/Sheep, Wild Horse, Wild Ass, and Aurochs.

And the following vegetables can be used to breed Wild Boar.

And when domesticated into Pigs you can use any food (even Cut Red Mushroom which is poison to yourself when uncooked).

Soil

Farmland75.gif

Farmland, also known as soil, contains three basic nutrients for crops and gives your plants that important access to water, if any source is close enough. By using the water and nutrient modes of metal hoes you can get a visual indicator on the plots on the levels of nutrients and the access to source water.

Nutrients are diminished by the growing of crops in the soil and replenished over time by either letting the plots "fallow" for a season, using fertilizer, or by planting your crops in cycles, choosing a crop that has a different nutrient requirement than the ones that are depleted in the earth. Note: Some crops such as soybeans and green beans replenish the other nutrients as they grow.

Unlike in vanilla, farmland cannot be trampled or reverted back into dirt. Breaking a farmland block also yields no dirt as a way to prevent nutrient exploitation.

History

Beta
v1cHoes can be used on the new dirt and Crops may grow and be planted.
Only wheat is a viable crop as of this patch.
v2 Build 48The first phase of agriculture has been added including 19 new crops with several more to come in future patches.
Harvesting tomatoes can be done via right click which will revert the plant back a few stages and allow it to produce more food.
Crops grow based upon the current temperature, amount of sunlight they receive, water saturation, and time.
All crops have an average amount of time that they will take to reach maturity which is directly affected by the temperature and nutrient levels.
Tilled soil stores information about the nutrient levels in that plot of dirt. There are 3 separate nutrient groups for soil called A, B and C.
Build 53 Water saturation is no longer tracked. A mechanic similar to vanilla is in place where not having water nearby confers a negative bonus to growth speed.
Scythes can be used to harvest crops. Warning! Using on tomatoes will yield nothing. Pick them by hand.
Build 58All Crops may be broken down into seeds by placing the item into your crafting area.
Build 61Crops can be found growing wildly in patches in newly generated chunks.
Build 67Hoes now have 3 new modes available to help farmers tend their crops.
Wild crop rarity increased from 1 in 4 chunks to 1 in 9 chunks.
Build 76Crops no longer die from old age by default.
Added a config option 'enableCropsDie'. Set this to true if you want more of a challenge.
Snow makes crops immediately fail unless they are very young and are marked as being frost resistant(Onion, Garlic, Carrots, Cabbage).
77.0Get straw from removing grain from crops and use of knife/scythe on grass.
78.0Wild crops should now respawn every year between the seasons of Spring and Late Summer.
Wild crop world generation altered so that different crop types will be harder to find.
Seeds can now only be obtained through harvesting crops.
Added fertilizer.
78.7Fertilizer can be used on crops on tilled ground.
Crops which die from any method other than the old age config option will give a seed back.
80.12Added flax
Added 3 new crops to make dyes for clothing
80.19Added Pumpkin and Watermelon as new crops
Melons, Oranges, and Peaches restore water when eaten
81.0Added Black-Eyed Peas as a new crop
Added grapes as a new crop
Made crops, trees, and fruit trees spawn according to the region data
