There are two primary forms of resource collection in vanilla Minecraft: farming your own crops and mining your own ores.
The Magical Crops Mod flips that idea on its head and lets players grow ore in their garden. This mod gives players the ability to grow their own resources, including:
All of these resources can be grown directly in your garden. Once a crop has been planted, it will eventually grow and drop one ore ‘essence’ as well as 1 to 2 seeds.
You’ll need to plant seeds in order to grow your various ores. Each ore plant also has its own rare drop. The Diamond Crop, for example, has a 10% change of dropping one Nature Essence and a 20% chance of dropping a weak magic essence.
There are 14 new crops in total covering all of the ores you know and love. Other items you can grow include dyes, ender, lapis lazuli, obsidian, and experience points.
There’s something satisfying about planting a massive field of ore crops and experience point crops and watching those crops grow into something useful. It’s a great way to produce rare ores and items and it provides a good alternative to traditional resource gathering.
If you’re the type of Minecraft player who doesn’t maintain an active garden, then the Magical Crops Mod will give you a whole new reason to spend a day in your garden. Download and install the Magical Crops Mod today to see what you’re missing!
