Currently there are 4 kinds of Crops in Creativerse:
Wheat Seeds can be randomly obtained by collecting Tallgrass or Savannah Tallgrass (even after you've placed it yourself). The other three types of Seeds can only be obtained by putting Horned Melons, Turnips or Crisphead Lettuces into a Processor.
Three of this Crops will spawn over time on all game-worlds of Creativerse and such they can be found by scouring the lands.
- Lettuce in most Forests, sometimes in Tundras and Swamplands, rarely in other Biomes on Grass or Dead Grass,
- Turnips in Swamplands, sometimes in Tundras and Forests, rarely in other Biomes on Grass or Dead Grass,
- Horned Melons solely on Jungle floors consisting of Detritus.
More and more of these three Crops will slowly spawn on game-worlds where players are active. In the beginning they might be rare, but the longer you play on a game-world, the more of them will show up. Staying close to suitable Biomes for a while might make them appear more quickly.
The "Pro" world option "more regrowth" should make more Turnips spawn on suitable Biomes on the surface of the game-world even faster.
Like mentioned above, Seeds can then be planted on tilled land to grow into more Crops. Some of the harvested Crops can be turned into Seeds again in the Processor, that can be planted again... Even Wheat, once grown on tilled land, can be processed into Seeds.
Seeds cannot be eaten by player characters or Pets directly.
Each Crop can be processed into 2 according Seeds each, and no crafting recipe has to be unlocked for that.
- 1 ear of Wheat can be transformed into 2 Wheat Seeds in a Processor
- 1 Lettuce can be transformed into 2 Lettuce Seeds in a Processor
- 1 Turnip can be transformed into 2 Turnip Seeds in a Processor
- 1 Horned Melon can be transformed into 2 Horned Melon Seeds in a Processor
Rarely additional Seeds will be obtained when harvesting Crops that players have grown themselves. Also if you harvest your Crops too soon (like when they're still sprouts), you will only get one Seed each, but no Crops. It's the same as if you had just picked up a planted Seed again instead of letting it grow at all.
You can grow Crops from Seeds on tilled blocks of Dirt, green Grass and/or Mud. First place such natural blocks over a body of Water or Mineral Water, or alternatively place these liquids directly adjacent to each block of Dirt, Grass or Mud (like directly below for example, or at least corner to corner).
This can even be done underground in complete darkness and/or in a building, but not at too high altitudes, not in too cold nor too hot Biomes/layers, and not too close to Swamplands or pools of Bog Water. In these cases, Seeds will stay "fallow" and won't grow (they can be picked up again though in order to be planted elsewhere).
Next craft a Plow and use it on the solid blocks to till them; they will turn into "tilled land". Then place Seeds on the tilled land (just like you'd place any block). You can, but you do not need to fertilize Seeds in order to make your Crops grow faster.
Wait a bit until the Crops are ripe to receive the best harvest. Wheat needs approx. 50 minutes (real-life-time) to grow from seeds into ripe plants, even if you're offline. Lettuce needs about 60 minutes, Turnips not much longer (ca. 61 minutes), Horned Melons need ca. 90 minutes until they're ripe.
Crops can be harvested by being "pulled" with the gauntlet and left mouse button (by default) just like any other type of block, item, plant or liquid. If Crops stay "ripe" for 24 RL hours, they will turn into "grown" Crops. The harvest will become a little less then, but Crops won't wither.
Saplings are different from Seeds and can only be grown into trees. Planting trees is much easier than growing Crops though; it only takes blocks of green Grass, sunlight (has to be on the surface) and a bit of Water (or maybe other liquids like Mineral Water) somewhere nearby.
