In order for the Advanced Backpack Construction System to work, we need another source of fibers for making Twine and Linen. I knew what it needed to be, but I didn't think I could handle texturing and modeling it. Then I realized the best source is the real thing, and to just process the images so they become pixelated to fit with the game's artwork. 

Then after almost completing the modeling and JSON configurations, and almost finally able to post this mod, I realized that this wonderous plant could logically be a source of Reeds, too. I had even considered that it might drop Sticks, but that didn't feel right. But Reeds and Fibers, absolutely.

This was also after finally realizing I could just make each of the 5 stages randomly drop a stage 1 block, instead of using seeds. It will have to be the solution for now, as the seed system is confusing me, and might require coding, like Jakecool19 did with his Wild Farming mod. There will need to be seeds, of course, as hemp seeds will be a very highly useful resource. 

You can use this on existing maps, you'll just need to go to areas you haven't been to yet in order to trigger the changes to WorldGen. 

For now the 4 types are set to Chance of 0.10, which might be a big high, but the whole growing process will change as I (we) figure out how to make seeds to plant them properly. But it appears that replanting a sapling will grow just fine. It will generate between 6 and 14 plants, leaning towards earlier growth, -- the numbers are 1, 1, 2, 2, 3, 3, 4, 5, meaning less chance of stage 4 and 5.  

There are four variations available so far, though the only difference is the image used for this plant's mysterious buds. The Orange strain will appear in hotter, dryer areas, White only in colder areas, but Tropical won't grow in cold, and Purple just about anywhere. Still working out the details on the numbers, so comments and suggestions are welcome. 

I'm almost finished writing up a forum post, which will also include the story behind where I got the name, it will be the Homepage link above when I post it.
