The plants in this mod primarily spawn between 25 and 0 degrees latitude in a normal world climate. What’s more, it can be used along side the Biome's mod to populate the Australasian realm. 


A thanks to the Wildcraft team for their work on formatting plant mods, Ледяная Соня for the ghost gum art assets, and a big thanks to everyone who gave feedback and assistance!

Would you please consider adding ways to make more of these plants with Wild Farming? Or maybe just pick up the roots of plants that you can't pick up normally? I would love to be able to decorate my base with these gorgeous plants, and use the resources added by them without making a long trek!

💬 Endarius_Termina, May 25th at 11:34 PM

I noticed the Bush Tomato doesn't display its name correctly with the meals, and i noticed the red river gum log texture is missing the 1 pixel bark trim on the log interior face.


💬 TentharchitectAuthor, May 12th at 12:36 AM

Not currently, but I believe someone was working on writing up compatibility patches

💬 Oweyan, May 11th at 10:46 PM

are the crops and foods in this mod compatible with expanded foods?

💬 TentharchitectAuthor, Apr 26th at 11:15 PM

Glad you like it NiteFox! As for compatibilities, making all the ones I've had requested would probably double development time across my mods, so for most compatibility I'll wait until after I've finished all the content, or rely on the help of others pitching in. 
If anyone is interested in adding compatibility patches, I have a Discord I'm running for my collaborations, so feel free to ping me if you want to help out.

💬 TheNiteFox, Apr 26th at 5:58 PM

Would it be possible for you to make this mod & you other tree mods compatible with the Ancient Tools Mod - Adze for bark baskets in the future?

I absolutely love the coloring on the Red River Gum btw. ^_^


💬 TentharchitectAuthor, Apr 7th at 5:05 PM

Possibly, I'll check it out, might just be a typo. Thanks for posting that!

💬 Rapidash, Apr 7th at 6:13 AM

Hello, starting a fresh world and this showed up on startup. 7.4.2024 06:07:42 [Server Warning] Block patch Nr. 77: Unable to resolve block with code floralzonescentralaustralianregion:flower-sennapleurocarpa-normal-free. Will ignore.

Is it something that is concerning? Like will it prevent that flower from spawning?

💬 TentharchitectAuthor, Mar 15th at 3:36 PM

Thanks for the report! Found the bug and should be pushing a hot fix with it later today, we'll be bundling a couple other small things with it.

I'm getting a handbook crash with v1.0.0 on v1.19.4. The client crashes when I look up firewood in the handbook:

💬 TentharchitectAuthor, Mar 7th at 6:20 PM

Thanks! If I recall correctly, Bunya Pines were discussed and we decided they'd go in the North Eastern Australia pack whenever we get to that one. We'll most likely do some Araucaria trees in the New Caledonia pack as well if we get to that

💬 Kumpus, Mar 7th at 2:52 PM

This mod is great, I'd love to see Bunya Pines added or some kind of Araucaria tree. it would fit in so damn well.

💬 TentharchitectAuthor, Mar 6th at 12:51 AM

I put every version I've tested a mod on in the "For Game version", section of a given version. If another major release is listed there, it will probably still work though Szczwany

💬 Szczwany, Mar 5th at 10:18 PM

Does this work on `1.19.x?

💬 TentharchitectAuthor, Mar 1st at 5:02 PM

😆 The next couple will have colder climate plants, and hopefully won't have nearly as long a gap between releases

💬 Stahl, Mar 1st at 4:46 PM

Really sucks to be doing an arctic run now 😂
