Microcosm 1.5 "Lumber N Loot"

Foresters Hut: Plants groves in surrounding empty plots.  Goves can also be planted by clicking empty plot with a sapling.

Lumber Mill: Harvests Groves for logs.  should work with any forge:logs


Explorers Hall:  The main hall and central hub of all Explorers

Slayers Dormitory: Connects to the Explorers Hall. The slayers collect hostile mob loot

Hunters Den: Connects to the Explorers Hall. Hunters collect passive mob drops

Seekers Tower: Connects to the Explorers Hall.  Seekers find rare Curios (need a mod that uses Curio slots)

Portals: Conduit, Nether, and End portals that can be a destination for Explorers to change the drops they collect.


Accelerator:  When the accelerator block receives a random world tick. It makes the block 3 above it tick as well.  Can be used to speed up some blocks like Mines and Farmhouses.


Microcosm 1.3 "We Have The Stones"

Microcosm Mod aims to automate many of the basic vanilla items by creating a Model Village

Pictures and better descriptions soon!

Quarry: collects stone, andesite, diorite, and granite, if a grindstone is placed adjacent to it, it will instead collect cobblestone, gravel, sand, and red sand. Works faster as it levels up

Mine: Finds overworld ores, gems, etc. The focus slot can be used to increase the chances of finding a specific resource. These are tied to statistical ratios of these resources in the world. Finds more resources as the mine levels up.

Focus Slot: Multiplies the chance to find a specific resource based on number of items in slot.

Smeltery Slot: Generate a work order at a smeltery and place it in this slot to deliver fuel and ores from this mine to that Smeltery

Smeltery: Smelts ores into ingots. At level 2 doubles the amount of ores and at level 4 triples. Works faster as it levels. Can generate a Work Order. that you can provide to a Mine, that will make that Mine deliver Ores and Fuel to be processed. Smelteries can handle multiple mines.


Microcosm 1.2 *"For the Love of Farming"*


Left: 2 Farmhouses harvesting melons an potatoes and their fields in differing states of growth  you can also see the Middens as well as a Beekeepers Station. 
Bottom Right: A well providing the farmhouses with water via the paths
Top Right: A silo

The Farmhouse: This block, at level 0, will scan a 3x3 area and randomly plow *Empty Plots* into *Plowed Fields*.  Which the Farmhouse will then plant into a *Growing Crop* and finally a *Harvestable Crop*.  When the Farmhouse harvests this tile, it will use the "Crop Rotation" mechanic to decide which crop it harvest.  The crops the Farmhouse currently supports are:

 - Wheat
 - Potato
 - Carrot
 - Beetroot
 - Sugarcane
 - Melon
 - Pumpkin

Crop Rotation: If you have provided the Farmhouse with 6 wheat seeds, 1 potato, and 3 melon seeds.  When the Farmhouse harvests a tile, it will choose to harvest melons around 3 times out of the total 10.  These seeds or crops are not used up during planting.  This gives you a very fine level of control of your harvest.  Need a bit of everything?  just provide it with 1 of each crop.  Need a wheat farm that occasionally gives you carrots?  Easy to accomplish.

Farmhouse Leveling: As your Farmhouse harvests crops it will gradually level up.  Leveling up increase the Farmhouse's Scan Radius as well as providing other benefits.  The max level is currently 5.

 - Level 0: 3x3 scan area
 - Level 1: 5x5 scan area
 - Level 2: *Beekeeping* unlocked
 - Level 3: 7x7 scan area
 - Level 4: Slight saturation effect to players in surrounding area
 - Level 5: 9x9 scan area

Beekeeping:  At Farmhouse lvl 2, Any Microcosm Bee Hives inside its scan area has a chance of providing a Honey Bottle as well as well as the normal bonus it provides

**The Silo:**  Every Farmhouse in a 15x15 area of a Silo will occasionally ship it's inventory of harvested crops to it's deep storage system.  The Silo can hold up to around 10,000,000 of each specific crop a Farmhouse can produce, including Honey Bottles.  As well as serving as a convienant storag solution, the Silo will be what provides other industries like the Bakery, when implemented, with wheat or other produce.

Middens:  Think of Middens as giant compost heaps.  If is attached to any side of a Farmhouse, it will provide a large  bonus to growth and harvest speeds.

Bee Hives This Microcosm block will provide a very small bonus to growth speeds, but serves a more important role once the Farmhouse reaches level 2 by allowing it to be harvested for honey bottles.

Wells: If a Farmhouse is connected to a Well via *Paths* it will slowly receive water from the Well.  Providing a bonus to growth speeds.

Paths: A decorative block that lays down paths between buildings or industries.  Buildings that need water to produce items will need to be connected to a Well via Paths.

Empty Plots:  Just an empty micro plot of land for your model village.

Other Industry blocks are available via creative but are not fully implemented, balanced, or optimized.

*This Mod is currently being developed and all feedback is welcome*

How are you converting the schamatics in to models are you limiting yourself to vanilla blocks and using Blockbench pluging for structure to model and if so how I just get a black screen :D with a folder on the right just saying structure with no blocks in there.

Congratulations for winning Mod of the Week :)

Your mod was also promoted on our official subreddit (https://www.reddit.com/r/MCreator/) and Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/MCreatorModMaker/).

What a cool concept! I would love to see some alternations of these blocks (like with grass/sand or similar instead of the path blocks). Keep it up :D

Wow. Great idea! And I love the models too! I'm curious what will be added in the future! Keep going! ;)
