In this article I will give you a guide on how to build a Mushroom farm in 5 easy steps Contents Step 1: Dig DownStep 2: Make the RoomAfter going down 7 steps […] if you can fix my "chess-grid" so it's only on 5 lines, please do so. ) I think the least time consuming and efficient way is to harvest compelete rows of mushrooms by simply holding your left mousebutton while walking in that row, I Make Things 09:52, 31 May 2011 (UTC), However, this article is currently a stub, and needs drastic expansion to be considered a full article. Mushrooms can spread, in order of preference/likelihood, 1 square either diagonally or orthogonally, 2 squares orthogonally, up a layer via an adjacent step/block, and rarely down a layer via an adjacent step/block (if at all). Dirt is automatically ejected into connected BuildCraft Pipes or adjacent chests. A day later, the size of the brown mushroom field about doubled) The Mushroom Farm works similarly to an Arboretum but requires Mycelium and red or brown mushrooms to operate, and produces giant red or brown mushrooms depending on which was provided to the Mushroom Farm, as well as dirt as waste. Any ideas? I know right now they spread on: They just spread to any opaque, solid block. --Dark Pulse 01:04, 6 June 2011 (UTC), I started my own farm with something like 3 red mushrooms. Let’s sum up how to grow mushrooms in Minecraft. --Ormidda 08:51, 31 May 2011 (UTC), (This is SMP) It seems to me that Red Mushrooms grow much slower than brown ones, though I may just be being unlucky. Home » Guides » Minecraft: How to Grow Mushrooms. The layout I'm using divides the brown and red mushrooms diagonally, with the diagonal line having no mushrooms planted on them. It's another kind of tick that's also used for trees, cacti etc and harder to understand. The big un 13:47, 8 June 2011 (UTC), I've left Minecraft running on both SSP and SMP, observed both planted and natural/generated mushroom fields growth. (If anyone thinks this should be shifted to it's own talk section of "advanced mushroom spread analysis", go ahead. This takes a little setting up (excavate, gather netherack, lay netherack) but is probably the easiest to harvest for a simple design Fists 06:34, 8 July 2011 (UTC) In fact, light is mostly detrimental to mushroom cultivation, and you can’t place them in direct sunlight; you need specific levels of illumination if you want them to grow. Apparently, they will only spread to other blocks if there are fewer than 5 mushrooms in a 9x9x3 area, with the original mushroom at the center. Crops currently growing. Since mushrooms aren’t plants, they don’t need the same in-game necessities such as water or even light. This makes a pitch-black, mob-proof, permanent mushroom farm possible that requires no upkeep or on-going modification. So please, enjoy, and if you have any other questions, comment below! On a side note, try to keep your mushroom farms small to minimize the risk of enemies accidentally spawning in dark corners. I think using that on a much larger scale, where you use either 4 or 9 mushrooms, surrounded by fire covered in glass to create a 12 nd 13-light area around it, while preventing the mushrooms from getting burned... Mushrooms will not spread to a tile with a light level greater then 12, understandable considering they cannot naturally spawn in light greater than 12. firstChosen.x = mushroom.x + rand[-1, 0, +1], firstChosen.y = mushroom.y + rand[-1, 0, 0, +1], firstChosen.z = mushroom.z + rand[-1, 0, +1], secondChosen.x = firstChosen.x + rand[-1, 0, +1], secondChosen.z = firstChosen.z + rand[-1, 0, +1]. So I think those 3 lines are absolutely rendundant and this is what we get: As already pointed out, that would make a mushroom spread at the same level with a chance of 50% and with a chance of 25% each it spreads one block up or down. 3. any other harvesting possibilities??? Crops ready to be harvested. Needs to be powered by a BuildCraft compatible engine. They eventually grow into Huge Mushrooms if kept in darkness, whereas vanilla Mushrooms only grow huge with the application of. The timing is hard to tell. It's not apparent in either of the code examples provided. AndroidAR 15:12, 30 May 2011 (UTC), I think that brown mushrooms spread faster in complete darkness, but red ones faster in light levels above 8. The room that the Mushroom Farm is in must be 15x5x15 (X-Y-Z) for all mushrooms … Placing light sources several blocks above where you plant the mushrooms is your best bet.

Create an interior/underground farm with a light level no less than 8 and no greater than 12. Obtaining [] Breaking []. I think the source code posted in this talk section is faulty (because I have seen mushrooms spawn with space between the new mushroom and the source shroom...) --R0B 18:43, 7 June 2011 (UTC), You can decompile the code and and look at BlockMushroom.java yourself. Assembling the mushrooms in a grid pattern, 3 squares apart (2 empty squares in between, with each mushroom getting 8 empty squares to themselves). Now for the tricky part: The Huge Mushrooms they grow into are smaller than vanilla ones. This video demonstates how to use all forestry farms, including the mushroom farm. I think the updateTick() method in which this code is called with a chance of 1% isn't actually called every single game tick. I'm not sure if the spread mechanics are correct. Tree farming is the process of planting a large number of saplings and waiting for them to grow into trees. However, if you thought mushrooms were a pain to farm, you ain’t seen nothing yet. Note that this light layout will not cover the 4 corner blocks. (Well, my head, anyway.) I started out by leaving an empty block in between two mushrooms every time, and leaving an empty line between two rows of mushrooms. A time-efficient farm, working for oak and birch trees. As for the most efficient mushroom farm, the method I just described is not the most efficient one when it comes to 'time to harvest' vs. harvest. It wouldn't be proper to talk about mushroom farming without bringing up the rare and mysterious mushroom island. Rather than keeping the whole farm 1-block high and then having to dig/alter it to get to all the mushrooms, it should be suggested to instead use glass as a floor block.
