Mystical Agriculture is a Java mod, created by BlakeBr0, which I have now recreated for Bedrock Edition! As a successor of the Magical Crops mod, this add-on is based around the idea of farming various resources, like diamonds, blaze rods and even dirt if you'd like, all using crops! Note: The original mod is MIT licensed. Check it out if you play Java Edition:
This add-on works by collecting essence from crops, to form the material you desire! Currently, only crops which make materials from ores can be made, but other crops, which allow to farm things like natural resources and even mob drops, will be added in the future.
By interacting with any vanilla or new crop, you can use a watering can to progressively grow it until matures. It has an infinite amount of uses, so go nuts!
To start out, you will need to discover these two new type of ores from either stone or deepslate in caves:
This drops Prosperity Shards, used for making seed bases.
This drops Inferium Essence, used as the base component for making various seeds.
This essence is also farmable by making Inferium Seeds for yourself!
Due to the bugs with custom crops on farmland, Inferium Farmland is a substitute.
For automation, you can plant Mystical Agriculture crops in Mystical Growth Pots, which drop their loot immediately after reaching full growth.
To make higher tier seeds, you must create a multi-block structure of the Infusion Altar:
Along with this, you will need to surround the Altar with 8 pedestals to activate it.
If placed correctly, an XP ding sound effect will be made, indicating it can be used.
Once making the Infusion Altar, you can make higher tier seeds, but you may wonder how to get different types of essence. Well you first need an Infusion Crystal:
This can then be used to upgrade your essence.
Resource Crops are the simplest to understand. All you need is 4 of the resource that you want to reproduce, and 4 of the respectable essence for the seed tier.
These seeds will drop the essence of the material once mature, which you can then place in the crafting table in specific patterns, to obtain the resource you desire.
For some seeds, you will require some dust under the name "Agglomeratio", which are able to categorise certain resources.
Each recipe is similar, always only needing a 2x2 crafting grid.
These can then be substituted as the resource in the recipe.
To create seeds from mobs, however, it requires a few more steps.
Soulstone and Soulium
Soulstone can be found in the nether as clumps, and submerged inside it is Soulium Ore.
This ore will drop Soulium Dust, while the Soulstone can be used as decoration; you also can continuously smelt the block to get Soul Dust.
With these two dusts obtained, you are now able to make Soul Jars and a Soulium Dagger.
With a Soul Jar in your offhand, attack a mob with the Soulium Dagger, and eventually the jar will fill.
Make sure to upgrade your Prosperity Seed Base to Soulium.
Once with 4 filled Soul Jars, you can finally use them to create your seeds.
Other Essence Uses
In the most recent update, essence can now be used for various other features:
The base materials for essence.
They are then used for making essence ingots/gemstones.
Upgrading to prudentium or above would require the previous tier of ingots/gemstones.
Upgrading your armor will provide greater protection and durability.
Upgrading to prudentium or above would require the previous tier of armor.
Upgrading your tools make them sharper, more durable and more efficient altogether.
Upgrading to prudentium or above would require the previous tier of tool.
Essence Watering Cans
Improving your watering can provides a greater range and efficiency for growing crops.
Upgrading to prudentium or above would require the previous tier of watering can.
To automatically grow your crops over time, growth accelerators do just that for you, each tier providing a greater vertical range above it.
Using multiple for each crop will make them grow even faster!
