BETA 0.1.0 (1.19.2)
First public release!

This is the first time anyone can try this project that has been in the work for over a year now!

Hickory Forest:
- Hickory trees! Its woodset works almost like a regular one, except that the planks's texture has 2 variants and gets chosen randomly when placed. The leaves will also produce Fallen Hickory Leaves below themselves overtime.
- 2 new flowers: Panxter Flower and Spotted Wintergreen.
- Breaking Hickory Leaves might give you Hickory Nuts.
Glowing Hickory Forest:
- Almost like a Hickory Forest, except that the trees have 4 different colors and slowly increase their light levels up to 7 when it's nighttime and then decrease their light levels when the sun is coming up.
- When right-clicking with a honey bottle on any glowing hickory leaves at night, you are going to get a colored glowing essence. Combining the 4 different colored ones and a Vibrion using a Bioengineer Workspace, you get Rutillion, which will give you ways to make invisible lightsources in survival once it is implemented in the future!
Vibrion Hive:
- the biome with the most features!
- This biome is a bacteria infected cave.
- Basic vegetation: Vibrion Roots, Substilium Sprouts, Hanging Vibrion Vines, Vibrion Gel.
- It has two types of "trees": Mushrooms and Sticks. Mushrooms have caps made of Substilium Shroom, trunks made of Substilium Wood which has its own woodset and some other blocks under its cap, like the Vibrion Block. The Stick is a taller version of the mushroom, but with no cap and more blocks around its trunk.
- Compressed Substilium Soil can be found(and crafted) all around the biome and can be made into building blocks(smooth, chiseled, tiles, cracked tiles) and these of course have cut version too(stairs, slabs, walls, pressure plates, buttons)
- A more unique type of vegetation is the Vibrion Sporeholder, which when stood on, gives you Contamination, a new effect.

- Contamination makes your tools use more durability depending on its level.
- An another way to get Contamination are the Sporeblasters, which have 2 types: a natural and crafted. The natural, as the name suggests, naturally generates in the Vibrion Hive biome.
They blast out yellow particles, which when gone through, gives you Contamination. It has a maximum reach of 15 and randomly changes. It also has two sides.
The crafted one is different in that it has a custom model, doesn't generate naturally, only has 1 side, but its reach can be controlled via redstone!
- You can obtain the previously mentioned Vibrion in many ways, but easiest is breaking a Vibrion Block.
- If you see purple particles coming out of the ground, that means you found Entorium! A new ore that is currently overgrown by substilium. You can use shears on the Overgrown Entorium Ores to reveal the ore hiding underneath. You can do every block one-by-one or use a shears with the new enchantment: Revealing! Instead of only revealing the block you right-clicked, it reveals all ores in a 3x3x3 area! After cleaning the substilium off the ore, you can then mine it to get Entorium!
- You many thing with Vibrion and Entorium(and other stuff like Vibrion Gel: Vibrion Glass and its glowing counterpart, Sporeblasters, Entorium Pills(gives you Immune-resistance, which removes Contamination from you, but might also give you weakness), the previously mentioned Bioengineer Workspace and a new tool: the Entorium Gauntlet! This tool breaks almost any block instantly, but that block might not drop(10% chance)! But here comes an another new enchantment: Reliable Research! It has 3 levels and every levels gives your gauntlet +10% chance to make block drop. So having a level 3 of this enchantment means every block you mine with your gauntlet will have a 40% chance to drop.

- You can also find Vibrion Growths in the biome, which have two parts: stems and a head. The stem is really hard to mine and gives Contamination. The head on the other head gives you some loot, including Entorium Sporebombs! These ranged items can be used to give other players/mobs Contamination from a distance.

You might see some unmentioned stuff, like some Bald Cypres wood-blocks, which are planned features that have placeholder textures, no way of obtaining in survival and no functionality for now.
Wild Aside is also compatible(so not a requirement to play) with Patchouli, but only has placeholder text for now.
