FAQ - fully artificial questions

Q: Another "grow your resources" mod? Why should I use it?
A: Yes, a part of PlantTech 2 is a "grow your resources" mod. But the crops are more then resource machines: 
- They are obtainable by crossbreeding from vanilla crops to almost every resource crop.

- Every crop have traits that effects growspeed, drops, etc. These traits can be increased by crossbreeding. 

- Almost every aspect of the crops (as parents, drops, soil) are configuratable.  

- And for the sciencelovers: genetic engineering!

Q: And thats all?
A: PlantTech 2 contains a lot more: 
- Machines with cables and upgrades

- A machine to fully automate your farming
- Armor

- And so much more thats will be added in the Future

It is possible to add/change some settings for the crops.

For 1.12


Change/add the lines in config/planttech2/cropparents.txt
The format is: 
<crop>=<parent1>+<parent2>,<chance to mutate>

0.1 = 10%
But there is always a chance of 50% that one of the parents is choosen




Change/add the lines in config/planttech2/cropsoils.txt
The format is: 




When not set, the default soil is used




Change/add the lines in config/planttech2/croptemperature.txt
The format is: 


When not set, the default temperature NORMAL is used.



Change/add the lines in the config/planttech2/cropblacklist.txt

The format is: 



Compressor Recipes

Change/add the lines in the config/planttech2/recipescompressor.txt
The format is: 

<mod of input>:<input item/block>,<meta input>,<mold>,<mod of output>:<output item/block>,<meta output>,<amount output>


Instead of the mod, you can use "oredict" to use the ore dictionary.

When there are errors in this file, the console will tell you where the problem is. 

 For 1.13.2 and above

Cropconfigurations can be changed by using data packs. 
You need to create the folder pt2_crops in your data pack and use the name of the crop you want to override. 
As an example: We change the seeds for the dirt crop to carrots and coal. 
The file pt2_crops/dirt.json would look like: 


When not overwriting things things in the file, they will stay as default. 
When you want to delete things, just make it empty. Like
