 Getting Started:

First you need to craft some Resource Seeds:

From Resource Crop you will get Simple Sprouts for basic resource crops.

There are 3 tiers of sprouts:

  1. Simple Sprout(basic sprouts obtained from Resource Crop);
  2. Powerful Sprout(10% chance to drop from all resource crops);
  3. Ultimate Sprout(5% chance to drop from all resource crops);

After you have collected at least 8 resource sprout you can make some basic resource crops.

Coal is one of the cheapest resource crop:

After you collected some Powerful and Ultimate Sprouts you can make the next tier of resource crops:

For example iron and gold need 4 simple sprouts and 4 powerful sprouts.

The last tier of crops require 4 powerful sprout and 4 ultimate sprouts(e.g diamond and emerald):


After you collected enough essence you can make resources.

Here are some examples:

Use a recipe viewer mod like JEI for recipes.
