  • Please read the notes at end of this changelog for some context and important information. Thanks.
  • Added a button to the Lexica Botania's landing page to rescale it without rescaling the rest of the GUI.
  • Added the Ring of Dexterous Motion, a new bauble that allows you to dodge to the sides using the A and D keys.
  • Attempting to summon a Gaia Guardian with an invalid arena now emits particles on the offending blocks.
  • Buffed the gaia guardian's wither effect due to it being easier to dodge now.
  • Changed the Lexica Botania's cover layout a bit. It now has a random quote on it. Quote pool will expand as I find more cool quotes.
  • Changed the special flower breaking particles from the poppy particles to generic green particles like in Botania 1.7.10.
  • Disabled Natural Shedding (by default, the config is still present and fully functional).
  • Fix pylon and petal apothecary models not being placed properly in the inventory.
  • Fixed a crash when placing slabs.

  • Fixed the Lexica Botania's notes accepting localization keys and localizing them.
  • Fixed the spreader wool sleeves not being slim fit on top and z-fighting on some sides.
  • Fixed the Teru Teru Bozu not being able to create rain.
  • Increased the amount of Mana required to open the Elven Portal.
  • Made the Mod's armor bulkier to fix z-fighting with the new skin layers. This is a temporary solution until we can redo the armor.
  • Managlass, Alfglass and Bifrost Blocks are now valid targets for Chisels&Bits.
  • Moved Stone Transmutation to the main alchemy page since they're no longer new blocks.
  • Moved the side buttons in the Lexica Botania's landing page to the bottom of the interface and changed them all to be green.
  • Re-implemented the update checker and ingame downloader built in to Botania 1.7.10.
  • Rebalanced the Gaia Guardian's health and damage cap to make more sense with the damage changes in 1.9.
  • Removed avatar decoration on Vazkii's player because they weren't stylish enough.
  • Removed Dayblooms and Nightshades. Endoflames no longer require Mana Powder.
  • Removed mana loss from spreader to spreader.
  • Removed Motif flowers.
  • Removed Needless Fluff: Roof Tiles, Hellish, Soul, and Frost Bricks, Trodden Dirt, Unstable Blocks, and Signal Flares.
  • Removed Primus Loci.
  • Removed the passive decay config again.
  • Removed the prismarine alchemy recipe.
  • Removed the Pylons and Mana Pools from the Elven Portal multiblock. They can now be placed anywhere in an 11x11 area. You can also have more than 2 Pylons, if you desire.
  • Removed Timeless Ivy (needless because of the existance of Mending in vanilla).
  • Replaced a lot of cringy memes and terribly placed references with some less cringy memes and terribly placed references.
  • The Elven Portal now takes mana per transaction rather than per tick. It will also no longer close itself if there's no mana.
  • The Gaia Guardian's attacks now display as an overlay in the world rather than as particles only.
  • The Livingwood Avatar can now place down dirt using the Rod of the Lands.
  • The Rosa Arcana can now get its XP from orbs in the world.
  • The Tiny Potato can now have items given to it. Many of the "easter egg" names for it have been removed as you can replicate them with this feature.
  • Updated Corporea textures and some those of some of the livingrock blocks.
  • Updated the dispenser planting's entry and feature set. It now duplicates Quark's dispenser planting so it can plant Cocoa Beans as well. Quark's disabels itself if Botania is present.
  • [API] Removed a bunch of stuff that is no longer used.
  • [API] Added a getFacing() method to IAvatarTile, this is used for the Rod of the Lands.
  • [API] Increased version number to 80.
  • This version is for Minecraft 1.10.2, and carries on from the latest release of Botania Unofficial.
  • A massive thanks is due to williewillus, who took it upon himself to port and maintain the mod all the way through 1.8, 1.9 and to 1.10. Please go send him love and hugs, as us being here would not be possible without him.
  • If you want to know what changed in between, have a look through the Releases page on williewillus/Botania.
  • This is the first release for 1.10.2, which sets up for further content expansion, while removing obsolete and bloated pieces of content. More content is planned and will be coming soon.
  • You can mitigate your worlds from Botania Unofficial to Botania just fine, any of the removed pieces of content you had in your world will just disappear.
  • A few pieces of content from Botania's 1.7.10 releases was removed in Botania Unofficial due to them being added to Quark, another mod by me which I highly recommend you install alongside Botania.
  • If you were looking for BotaniaV2, most of that project was scrapped in favour of this update instead. I decided that instead of reinventing a mod that's already good, I'd use the concepts there to make a new mod instead, which I am planning, but want to get some new stuff onto Botania and Quark before I move onto that.
  • And that's it for my important note. I'm back to Botania, and I hope you carry on enjoying it.

Botania Unofficial

R1.8 321

This is the final release of Botania Unofficial. Thanks everybody for your support during my watch, and I'm glad to have brought you continued fun and enjoyment these past 8 months. Til' next time!

  • zh_CN lang updates (3TUSK)

  • Internal cleanups
  • Optimized floating flower model, it should render faster now when animated, I will continue to explore options to optimize the animated ones
  • Also added a config option to render floating flowers statically. This means they don't animate but render not just faster but A LOT faster. This option makes them render as fast as normal blocks like fences.

Small build but again I need some fires to get put out
Java 8, JEI 3.7.8, Forge 2044+


  • Fix blocks disappearing, transforming, or becoming missing models on chunk reload
  • Forge fixed a pretty serious vanilla bug in the blockstate ID map in 2027, that a lot of mods were unintentionally relying upon. However, that fix was incomplete and was not completely resolved until 2044. If you are running the mod in a version in this range of buggy Forges from 2027-2044 (I'm looking at you Unstable >.>) be aware that I've had users report blocks disappearing or transforming when upgrading out of that range. You've been warned, and I'm very sorry for the bugs.


  • More json and model registration cleanup
  • Lexicon 3D model is back! Looks a bit wonky in the left hand but works good enough

  • Made a bunch of eventhandlers static. That probably means nothing to most of you, other than things will run negligibly faster :P

Beta 0.5.3

New build with some various bugfixes

Built on Java 8, MinecraftForge 1722 (latest stable 1.8.9, REQUIRED), Baubles, Botania 1.7.10 b248

  • MAJOR: Corporea Funnel change to accomodate 1.8 item frames
    • Item frames in 1.7 had four possible states, up right down and left. This corresponded with the funnel pulling 1, 16, 32, and 64 items. Going above four rotations crashes in previous 1.8 builds
    • In 1.8, the intermediate directions are also available, so the funnel's item frame filters have changed to accommodate this. In clock wise order, the items pulled by the funnel are now 1, 16, 24, 32, 40, 48, 56, and 64. These values will be changed the next release, don't get comfortable with them

Known issues:

  • Some apothecaries missing texture, spreaders missing texture
  • Pump missing texture right now, I'm working on migrating it to JSON, which is what you see ;)




The stupid receiveMana crash should no longer happen ever, but only because I've suppressed the symptoms, not the cause. I need your help:

Where it would've crashed in past builds, I've now put an obnoxious message saying "CLIENT TICK FAILED". If you see this, PLEASE REPORT it to this thread: #71. Please include if you are on SP or MP, and what kind of machine (as in what kind of in game contraption) it errored on. If you notice a recurring pattern in what coordinates this occurs at, a certain type of flower, etc. please include that as well

Thank you so much for helping me hunt this down!

    • Mana Lens: Celebratory - When it collides with a block it'll make a firework of the color of the burst.

  • Pasture Seeds for blocks other than Grass can now be used on Grass.
  • Removed the "lore" pages after some flowers' recipes, as interesting as they are, they served no practical purpose and only confused people.

  • Added the Solegnolia Petite. Not much to explain here.
  • Changed the Lexica Botania's Category Icon Shader to use GL Texture Unit 7 rather than 15. Also added a config option to change which unit is used, just in case. This should fix GL errors with old and integrated graphics cards.
  • Fixed a crash with the Worldshaper's Sextant if CodeChickenCore isn't installed. (TheWhiteWolves)
  • Fixed a minor grammar derp. (shadowfacts)
  • Fixed Shimmerrock and Shimmerwood Planks not having microblocks.

    • Rod of the Hells: Creates a perpetual fire ring around it, like the rod does.
    • Rod of the Plentiful Mantle: Minims the rod's effect of showing nearby ores, the colors stay the same as long as it stays in the same place.

  • [API] Increased version number to 65

  • Changed the "no mana killzone" of the Dandelifeon from a 5x5 to a 7x7. To be honest, I really don't know where I'm going with this one. It's seeming to me like it's a failed experiment, as the optimal build always ends up being a really simple thing, which I'm not a big fan of. I'm just trying various things and seeing what sticks. I might end up removing it alltogether.
  • Changed the Gaia Guardian's health to 800 (from 300) and the damage cap to 35 (from 12), 50 if it's a crit. In a way, if you're properly prepared, the boss is actually easier now as it's definitely possible to hit that hard with the proper enchants and potions, it just requires preparation.

  • [API] Increased version number to 64.

R1.7 223

  • Added code to safely crash the game if someone overrides the Botania API's Internal Method Handler. Overriding the Internal Method Handler is a sure fire way to crash the game or cause incompatibility problems later down the line, so at least you're getting informed about it with a proper error message. It's sad that I even had to makXe this, to be honest.
  • Fixed a circular dependency chain with DragonAPI not allowing for the game to load.
  • Fixed Red Stringed Conparators only seeing half of a double chest.

  • Some Dandelifeon tweaks, the 5x5 area around it will no longer kill generation 1 cells, the output rate has been lowered a bit and the recipe for Cellular Blocks has been changed.
  • Sparks now produce less, but bigger, particles to make it less likely to reach the particle limit.
  • The Mana Pool's "water" icon is now a different icon and not the one used for water. (it still looks the same, it's just in a different file)
  • The Ring of Magnetism now has a limit of 200 entities it can pull so it doesn't kill your FPS if you manage to get a lot of items in one place for whatever reason.

  • Fixed an exploit that made the Exoflame ridiculously fuel efficient.

R1.7 218

  • Fixed the Black Hole Talisman crashing the game if used on lit redstone.

  • Fixed the Flugel Tiara's sprint delay being 1.5 seconds rather than the intended 3 seconds, also changed it to 2 seconds, so the intended is now 2 seconds rather than 3 seconds. So this line should read "Fixed the Flugel Tiara's sprint delay being 1.5 seconds rather than the intended 2 seconds", but the intended was 3 seconds before and 2 seconds now because 2 seconds feels better than 3 seconds. I don't even know.

  • Added the ability for botania armor and baubles to have Thaumcraft runic shielding. (ruifung)
  • Added the Slime in a Bottle, effectively a slime chunk detector.
  • Added the Starcaller by very popular request. A new sword that makes shooting stars. Yes, it's the Starfury/Star Wrath from Terraria.

  • Changed the element and season runes' textures to new versions in Sosho by miznib.
  • Changed the hardcore passive generation value to 48000 by default instead of 24000. It was supposed to be that to begin with but I can't do math.
  • Dice of Fate dropped by the Gaia Guardian now bind on drop rather than on pickup.
  • Fixed baubles that store mana not updating the mana bar above the XP bar in real time.

  • Hydroangeas are now quieter.

  • Passive flowers now get replaced with Dead Bushes when they despawn rather than getting removed altogether.
  • Prismarine now animates properly.

Now, before you start raging and raising your pitchforks around at this, please think about what botania tries to do, and how much super condensed fuels like Aeternalis Fuel Blocks negate that.

  • Hydroangeas now detect when they have an infinite water source and don't remove the water or cause block updates in that case. Better performance!

  • Removed the text that states Terrasteel Armor has HP boost as that was removed last version.

  • The Soujourner's and Globetrotter's Sashes now actively try to change step height rather than on equip only.

  • (Technical) The lexicon's GUI now keeps the ItemStack used to open it to render the name, rather than pulling it from the current equipped stack.

R1.4 154

  • Holy moley, that's a long changelog. I apologize in advance if anything in this build is broken. I don't do "exclusive beta testing", and since this is a large version there'll probably be some kinks. I'll try my best to iron them out over the next couple of days!

  • Fixed the Ring of Far Reach removing flight (and breaking whatever arcane sorcery was behind the Angel Ring in Extra Utils).
  • Fixed the Soulscribe being able to automatically repair with mana like a Manasteel Sword can.
  • Fixed the Terra Shatterer not breaking blocks in AoE at X=0 or Z=0.
  • Fixed the Terrestrial Agglomeration Plate desyncing if the server is lagging and potentially destroying all the mana used if one picks up the item too early in those circumstances.
  • Made the Black Lotus rarely appear in Bonus Chests.
  • Made the Fallen Kanade not work in the end to prevent cheesing the Ender Dragon.
  • Mana Sparks now try to update the list of sparks they can transfer to after they're done ticking. Dominant Sparks will also attempt to pull mana from sparks at random rather than iteratively. When a * Mana Pool with a Dominant Spark is charging an item and is full, instead of pulling from one Mana Pool exclusively it randomly pulls from all possible pools around.
  • Mana Tablets now render on the player's belt, if there's one.
  • Mana tools now have right click abilities. The Pickaxe places a torch from the inventory, the Axe does the same for a sapling and the Shovel works as a Hoe.
  • Nerfed the Bands of Aura. A lot.
  • Removed the health boost from Terrasteel Armor.
  • Removed the item name remapper. It's completely useless at this point unless by some reason you're updating from a 10 month old build. It was also breaking downgrading as it was trying to remap items that didn't exist.
  • Removed the transparency in the HUD mana bars, as it looked absolutely god awful in higher resolutions/scales.
  • The Elementium Pickaxe (and Elementium Tipped Terra Shatterer) will now look in the ore dictionary for what blocks not to break. Should help with Underground Biomes and other mods that add new stones.
  • The Lexica Botania's in hand animation uses partial ticks now and isn't locked to 20fps any more. It looks so much smoother. GLORIOUS 60FPS PC MASTER RACE
  • The Mana Prism can now be turned off with a redstone signal.

  • Trodden Dirt now expands to a full block if there's a block above it.

  • Added the Mana Prism, a new block that can change the properties of a Mana Burst on the fly.

  • Red String Spoofers will now also connect to mushrooms.
  • Shifted the Assembly Halo HUD down 10px so it fits on smaller resolution/render scales.
  • The Brewery and Enchanter now have the same progress pie as the Runic Altar.
  • The Magnet Ring will no longer pull items that can contain mana, items that are on a terrasteel plate or AE2 crystal seeds.

  • [API] Added IManaDissolvable and IDyablePool.
  • [API] Increased version number to 29.

R1.3 151

  • Fixed the Terra Shatterer.

  • Fixed other mods' GUIs turning blue while the mana bar is being rendered. They really should reset the glColor before rendering...
  • Fixed the Mana Fluxfield not sending energy to every RF receiver. (yueh)
  • Fixed the Mana Fluxfield requiring the CoFH API to be present to work rather than the CoFH Energy API. (Vexatos)
  • Fixed tools that break multiple blocks (manasteel shovel, terra shatterer) causing dupes with thermal expansion tanks and strongboxes and potentially other blocks that require exact harvest method call order.

R1.3 149

  • Fixed Dominant Sparks being able to pull from blocks other than Mana Pools.
  • Fixed Flashes dropping themselves.
  • Moved the following flowers to elven knowledge: Thermalily, Kekimurus, Heisei Dream, Orechid, Loonium.

R1.3 148

  • I could have fit this on 147 but I only decided to do it later :V

  • Fixed a major dupe with the Assembly Halo where right clicking a recipe would allow for more than one item to be crafted at once using only one set of resources.
  • Fixed the render for the flowers not randomizing the position in the Z axis like vanilla flowers do. It still randomizes in the Y axis unlike vanilla flowers because I think it looks good.
  • Sparks now properly check against how much space is left on the target block and don't try to put in more mana than available, actually making spark networks viable. You can all point and laugh now.
  • The Assembly Halo is now more forceful with checking the validity of a recipe. It can no longer craft recipes purely from memory (and allowing as a way to craft things that have been changed since)
  • The Mana Mirror now checks for the pool on update and has a backlog for calls inbetween. It also works cross dimension a lot better.
  • [API] Added getAvailableSpaceForMana() to ISparkAttachable. This is very important and breaks backwards compatibility. If anyone is using that interface please adapt ASAP.
  • [API] Increased version number to 28.

R1.3 145

  • Added the Mana Lens: Flash. It makes fancy lights!
  • Botania Flowers now shift a bit depending on position similarly to vanilla flowers since 1.7. About time.

  • The enchanter will now always properly reset the pylons' particle emitting status.

R1.3 137

  • Fixed the Red Stringed Spoofer not being in the creative tab.
  • Fixed the Terra Shatterer not actively restoring its damage like the manasteel tools do.
  • Fixed the recipes for breaking back Reed and Thatch blocks giving items with metadata 1, and thus unusable.

R1.3 136

  • Added Red String and Red Stringed Blocks. These can interact with other blocks remotely.
  • Calling setWater on the petal apothecary now calls for a block update. This is technical stuff for other modders only.
  • Changed some minor details in some lexicon entries so they are accurate to recent changes.
  • Changed the brewery texture to a more appropriate one. (Yulife)
  • Combining a Floating (any color) Flower with any botania flower with an effect (manastar, pure daisy, any generating or functional...) will replace the flower there with the one you put. The flower will still act like normally, but has the visual and technical properties of a Floating Flower.
  • Fixed mod slabs letting light pass through.
  • Fixed some tpyos in the elven lore page. I desperately need someone to proofread the nonsense I write.
  • Fixed the game crashing if one tries to look up uses for the Tainted Blood Pendant in NEI.
  • Fixed the runic altar not saving the amount of mana it should get (and thus causing the amount of mana it has to reset to 0 when it loads back).
  • Fixed there being a missing texture on the terra plate, resulting in some unneeded log errors.
  • Having Night Vision on a Tainted Blood Pendant will no longer make the brightness blink obnoxiously.
  • Hopefully fixed entry sharing being somewhat fiddly in SMP.

  • The Gaia Guardian now spawns a few less mobs and spawns them in a smaller radius. It won't spawn pig zombies or spiders any more, but you might get witches.

R1.3 134

  • Fixed crash when looking at a mana pool if dark quartz is disabled in the config.
  • Fixed the terrasteel plate taking mana from spreaders even if it isn't active.

R1.3 133

  • Build 132 was supposed to be 1.3, not this, but this one works too. All this stuff was to be in 132 but I wanted to play The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth, since that came out, y'know...
  • 1.7.2 is no longer supported.
  • Added a Brew of Restoration, it's like the brew of Revitalization but it's Regeneration I for 2 minutes and uses redstone in the crafting.
  • Added new lore/backstory pages for the events that separated the elves' world from the overworld. It's worth a read, but not required. Some text in the original entries was also changed to reflect.
  • Added the Tainted Blood Pendant, it can store potions and give the player their effects while it's worn, for the cost of mana.
  • Added the Terrestrial Agglomeration Plate, which serves as the new method to create Terrasteel. You'd be wise to look at the Terrasteel page to check out how it works. It's pretty similar to the old method but allows for more control and can be done earlier in the game.
  • Changed the Gaia Guardian fight a whole bunch, it's harder now to compensate for the new items and the fact that it can take damage from the Terra Blade now. Brews and a Terra Blade are a must now. The entry in the lexicon now describes the recommended gear. You can see what it does for yourself ;)
  • Fixed the Alfglass recipe using Glass instead of Managlass as it should.
  • Fixed the Brew of Mending not working.
  • Fixed the Brewery breaking instantly. Added added the proper block texture for breaking.

  • Fixed fucking typos. Again.
  • If the summoning of a Gaia Guardian fails, a chat message is now sent describing why.

  • [API] Increased version number to 23.
  • [API] LexiconCategory now implements Comparable, has a sorting priority int and keeps count on how many were added for addon makers to be able to have their entries be sorted. The default (and used by botania categories) is 5, entries like basics and misc use 9 and 0, respectively. Use setPriority() to set.

  • Fixed hopperhocks having weird interactions with sided inventories, fixes issues with the Storage Drawers mod.

  • Fixed the default flower spawn rates being wrong (3 and 32). They're now 2 and 16. Funny story, this was supposed to have been changed in build 90, but wasn't due to an oversight on my part. Regardless, it's now :V

  • Reorienting spreaders (and binding flowers now) has a beam effect as a visual confirmation.

  • Mana Pools in the Lexica Botania now render with Mana in them, that just makes sense right?
  • Mana Pools now come in two tiers. Diluted and [normal]. The diluted one only stores 1% of what the normal one can and is what you get by crafting it now, it can't infuse any items but a normal mana pool, which is acquired by tossing a Diluted Mana Pool into one with Mana.
  • The Shard of Laputa doesn't scale vertically now, fixes it pulling blocks twice on higher levels. (SoundLogic)

R1.1 98

  • The Gaia Traps (purple spots the Gaia Guardian summons) now only blind for a fraction of a second instead of four seconds.
  • The Rod of the Lands no longer works below sea level (Y = 62), this is to prevent it from being used as a ghetto underground quarry.
  • The Runic Altar now has Comparator support, it emits power 1 if it's taking mana, power 2 if it's ready for the Livingrock.
  • The Shard of Laputa is now upgradable using aditional Gaia Spirits, each one increases the radius by 1 block, up to 20 can be used.
  • The Soujourner's and Globetrotter's Sashes no longer work underwater, so you can't go at hyperspeed underwater. Godspeed, Godspeed, Godspeed, speed us away

  • [API] Exposed IPixieSpawner from internal classes.
  • [API] Increased version number to 7.

  • Added "dammit reddit".
  • Added a config option to disable the Mana Enchanter.
  • Added the Crimson Pendant, a "tier 2" Pyroclast Pendant that does what the old one used to pre-nerf.
  • Added the Hand of Ender, an item that allows not only for access of one's Ender Chest, but of others' via right clicking on them. (the last feature can be toggled in the config).
  • Added The Spectator, a new bauble that lets you search for items in inventories, dropped around, in players/horses' inventories, equipped by mobs and that villagers trade.
  • Changed the recipe for the Pyroclast Pendant to make more sense with the recent nerf.
  • The Pixies the Gaia Guardian spawns no longer take non-player damage, so you can't cheese the battle with Tiny Planet + Terra Blade. Sorry Lewis :3

R1.1 94

  • Added Mob Spawners to the Botania creative tab. Using a spawn egg on them changes the mob it's spawning, similar to MC:PE.
  • Added the Ender Overseer, a new block that detects when players are looking at it and gives out a redstone signal.
  • Nerfed the Pyroclast Pendant, now it only protects the wearer from fire damage if they are not standing on fire or lava.

  • Actually fix the skull renderer because I'm an undereducated idiot who has no clue what they're doing or how the java compiler works :V

R1.1 92

  • Doubled the range in which the Mana Enchanter can pull from Mana Pools. The range it was before was stupidly low anyway.

  • Hopperhocks will no longer pick items up right after a Mana Pool crafts them.
  • I was playing with TC and realized I wanted Botania armor mixed in with the Goggles of Revealing, so you can do that now.
  • Lowered the chance for the Lexica Botania to spawn in the Bonus Chest, according to almighty reddit it was too high.
  • Player heads now render with the hat/hair layer as they do in the normal model, so your crafted heads won't look weird now. Thanks to Kihira for this!
  • Removed the Baubles Button from the inventory as that feature is provided by Baubles itself now.

R1.1 90

  • Added a new generating flower, the Gourmaryllis, it eats food to make Mana, but there's a catch...

  • Added Rainbows for Nemsun.
  • Added the Crafty Crate (and a Placeholder item for use with it), a counterpart to the Open Crate that can autocraft items.

  • Fixed chat spam when using a Wand of the Forest or spawning pixies.
  • Fixed the Kindle Lens destroying blocks.
  • Fixed the Wand of the Forest trying to interact with objects on the client when it's bound to a spreader. So when bound to a spreader, mana pools will no longer change their mode in the client but update when clicked normally.
  • Lowered default flower quantity and density to 2 and 16 respectively (was 3 and 32).
  • Lowered default villager shed avg interval from 82000 to 226000 (this won't affect old configs).

  • The Hopperhock now respects inventory max stack sizes.
  • The Mana Enchanter is more expensive and puts less empahsis in the rarity of the enchantment.
  • The Mana Pool no longer has a cooldown between being able to craft items but rather a timer on when it can "re-craft" an item after it crafted it (see wood log transmutation for example).
  • The Mana Pool will no longer emit charging/discharging FX if no transfer happened (when either the pool or the item is full/empty).
  • The Snowflake Pendant no longer creates ghost ice blocks in the client and is now properly centered on the player.
  • Toned down the mana pool charging/discharging fx for sake of performance.
  • [API] Added ILaputaImmobile for blocks that shouldn't be able to be moved by the Shard of Laputa. For Victorious3 for BetterStorage crates.

  • Added some Illustrations to the Daybloom and Hydroangeas entries to explain better how they work.

  • If a Wand of the Forest is bound to a spreader, it'll always show that spreader's bounding box instead of any other, to make it more obvious.
  • Spreaders now aim to the center of blocks taking their collision box in mind and not a 1x1x1 box.
  • The islands created by the Shard of Laputa are now somewhat randomized and pickup more blocks above the source. (SoundLogic)

  • Changed some documentation.
    • The Runic Altar's entry now has a small preface telling players they should look into Mana Manipulation first.
    • The Mana Spreader's entry now has clearer instructions for how the rotating is done and documentation for the fact that you can disable it with a redstone signal.
    • The disclaimer that lenses only function when there's a proper block to shoot at has been changed and moved to a single page rather than being on various lenses' pages.
  • Fixed Mana Burst particles going above the spreader on the first few ticks.
  • Fixed shaders not compiling sometimes and causing crashes/log spam. I have no idea what I'm doing :V
  • Fixed the Gaia Guardian being able to freeze the game if it falls in a ravine or equivalent (found this while fighting it in an island made by the Shard of Laputa).
  • Fixed the Hyacidus wasting mana by trying to poison undead.

R1.1 87

  • Fixed Mana Spreaders freezing your game, woot!
  • Removed the ability for the Rod of the Seas to place water in the Nether, after some thought it wasn't that great of an idea after all.

R1.1 85

  • Botania should now work properly in a developer environment and not complain about sand in it's eyes or something.
  • Added Futureazoo's Textures as a config option. A Full Resource Pack with other textures is also available.
  • Added the Infrangible Platform, a counterpart to the Abstruse and Spectral Platforms only available in creative, its' collision box is similar to a regular block and it's unbreakable, it's meant for mapmakers, see.
  • Added the Ring of Far Reach (Elven Knowledge), it increases your reach by 3 blocks.
  • Changed the Terra Shatterer texture to Futureazoo's. See previous link.

  • Removed the feature where the Tiny Potato would take over other mods' item renders.
  • Removed the technical quantityDropped override for special flowers at request of mDiyo, might fix some stuff with tcon. /shrug

  • Added the Tiny Potato, it believes in you, you can do the thing!
  • Added two new lenses: The Kindle and Force lenses, which, respectively, set blocks on fire and move them like a Piston.
  • Changed the recipe for the Phantom Lens since that recipe is now used for the Force Lens.

  • Renamed "Mystical Instruments" to "Mystical Items", because it makes more sense and is less confusing.
  • The Petal Apothecary now has a smarter checking for what it considers seeds. Read: Natura Hopseed wood won't work now :p
  • Tweaked the Mana Burst particles, now they never leave any empty space between them, so you get a proper straight burst when you fire it with a Mana Blaster instead of a bunch of loose particles. The color and size also randomizes a bit to make each burst distint, even if just by a bit.

R1.1 83

  • Changed the Lexicon HUD icon to be a lot less intrusive.
  • Fixed Gaia Pylons' in-world lexicon click going to the wrong entry.
  • Shaders now use GLSL version 120 instead of whatever they feel like. Should fix issues with some GPUs having lag with them enabled. If your GPU doesn't support GLSL version 120 you should consider upgrading (or turning shaders off in the config I guess).

R1.1 82

  • Added a config option to disable the animation when an item is charging on a Mana Pool.
  • Added some Botania loot to the Bonus Chest, Stronghold and Dungeon chests.

  • Fixed the Baubles button opening an empty baubles gui.

  • Fixed Bifrost blocks being pickupable in creative.
  • Fixed some seeds not getting picked up by the petal apothecary (any registered with "Seed" in the name rather than "seed" because the check was case sensitive). (ganymedes01)
  • The burst from a Damaging Lens or Terra Blade now has a larger collision box and hits mobs in a small radius around it.
  • The Flügel Tiara is now made with Elementium.
  • The Mana Usage display for Mana Infusion and Runic Crafting recipes in the Lexica Botania now shows that it's on a 10:1 ratio. Hovering over the bar changes it to 1:1 ratio.

  • Having a Mana Void or any Catalyst below the Mana Pool changes it's texture.
  • Mana Pools and Spreaders now add themselves back to the mana network case they get removed for whatever reason. If this change doesn't fix the whole "flowers sometimes unbind from spreaders/pools" issue once and for all I'm punching a loli.
  • The Mana Blaster now has a subtle flicker effect on it's texture.
  • The Mana Detector now emits some red particles while it's emiting a redstone signal.

  • [API] Added IClientManaHandler and IPoolOverlayProvider.
  • [API] Increased apiVersion to 2.

R1.1 70

  • Massively optimized the particle render code. Botania particles will no longer kill your fps. In doing this they also render properly over water now, so that's neat. Yo Azanor, you should do this too for Nitor.
  • Added Matrix Mode as a config option. This was a visual glitch I got while changing the particle code that I decided to leave in because it was funny.

R1.1 69

  • Added a new lens (that requires elven knowledge), the Paintslinger Lens.
  • Changed the Pixie Dust texture to be pink to match the other elven resources and the pixie mob texture. You were waiting for it, confess.
