The Grass Mod 3.1 Update for SB 1.1.1

Any grass on any block.

  1. Markelius
    The Grass Mod is a mod designed to create a renewable and easy method to put any of the game's grasses on any block.

    With this mod installed, most grasses in the game will drop seeds or samples, to collect them, simply break them with your matter manipulator like so:

    Once you collect grass seeds or samples, you can grow them on tilled irrigated soil by simply throwing them at it like this:

    Some groundcover, like ash, sand, tar, hive grass, or others, can be put onto any surface, not just tilled irrigated surfaces. For regular grasses, if you want to place them on any surface, you will need to create The Grass Lab.

    To do this, you will find the recipe in the inventors table, which is 10 Tungsten Bars, 1 Glass, and 2 Dirt. Once you build it, simply place it like you would any other crafting table.

    The interface should look something like this (old gif, current UI and recipes are slightly different, but mostly the same):

    Using the grass lab, you will now be able to create "grass packs", which will allow you to grow grasses on any surface. You can also create grass plants which drop seeds when harvested, that look like this:

    Additionally, you can also build grass incubators for things like hive and slime grass that look like this:

    They start out with 3 red lights, but once all 3 lights turn green, you can harvest samples from them.

    Finally, for undergrowth and roots, you can build these growth trays:

    Using all these tools, it should be easy for you to be able to grow any grass you find on any block!

    Have fun, and let me know what you think in the reviews section below and discussion thread! Happy decorating!

    This mod is definitely high on my favorites list. It always annoyed me that once grass was gone it was gone for good. So nice to have a way to get it back.
