Automatic Farm!

  1. So, on my res, on SMP9 (18513), I built an auto farm. It is a rather complicated design. I realized that, because 1.5 has changed the bonemeal mechanics, the old designs of those auto farms where you would place a seed, whack it with bonemeal, and then a BUD would pick it up and destroy the fully grown wheat do not work anymore, so I came up with a design that allows you to stand on a pressure plate, and spam right click:

    When the seed is planted on the tilled earth, three dispensers fire in order to fully grow the wheat (automatically) and then, the tilled earth moves due to a piston, and the wheat automatically converts into an item, and you can pick it up. Also, you can easily AFK farm, by spamming right click, and automatically placing a new seed every time one breaks.

  2. Technical Information:
    One full grow cycle: 2.4 seconds.
  3. This does remind remind me of a machine by GenerikB, but props to you for making it 1.5 friendly.

  4. Cool, I think etho has a tutorial about this as well, although his design is definitely different. Props to you.

  5. Thanks, I actually started out by trying to build his machine, and then got frustrated because it didn't function. Then, I ripped his machine out and made my own :)
    Also, here's a peek at the redstone:

  6. Even back in 1.4, the old GenerikB machine still doesn't function on EMC, must be the item staking mechanic in place.

  7. I find the issue with many water-using farms right now is how the items don't seem to move as much.

  13. Well, really it's impossible as each wheat drop is guaranteed to drop at least one seed, so you would never run out of seeds. All you need to do is start with one seed.
  14. Do you have any ideas about how to fix the tree farm after 1.5. I spent 1 stack and half of bone meals for a tree.

    So could I allow more space around the tree ?? And how to make this
