What is Biota Mod
Biota Mod is a work-in-progress mod that comes to make plants in Minecraft become more dynamic. Ground will have nutrients that feed plants for them to grow and thrive. All of this serve the common purpose that is to make life in Minecraft get more realistic. Of course it should stay fun too, so things will be simplified.
Nutrients & Light
Nutrients are essential for plants. Over-farming on the same ground will make your plant grow more slowly and eventually die. Plants will change color when a certain nutrient is missing. This can give you an idea on what your plants need to grow. Of course plants will not only need nutrients to grow, but also to stay alive. When an ecosystem is stable bacteria will decompose all dead plants (and animals) and give back the nutrients to the ground, so new plants can grow.
But nutrients is not the only factor that decides the growth of plants. Light is also an essential resource for plants. Plants get their energy from light and to little light means no plants. This will also be like this is with Biota.
Spread & Die
When plant have more than enough nutrients and light to grow, they will also start to spread. When your ground is fertile enough one seed might be enough to fill a whole farm. But when a plant spreads too fast it might start competing with other plants, causing them to not grow or even die. Survival of the Fittest.
You as a player can also have an impact on the world around you. What happens when you walk on the same patch of grass over and over? Yes, it gets worn and dies. This also happens with Biota.
