This gamemode has three stages, the first stage is growing a basic plant on a platform. This plant is required to create a solution to grow a fruit plant which is used to make a solution to grow a tree.
There are 3 seed bags, the first green one is the easy plant that you start to grow and is quite simple since it cannot be infected and is really easy to maintain (Just needs watering every minute for 5 minutes)
The second bag (Blue One) is for the fruit plants which are more difficult to maintain. The soil it uses needs to be mixed with the first plant you grow. The soil is inside of the 3 green containers (1 bucket for the basic plant, 1 for the fruit plant and 5 for the tree).
In the second bag you have a chance of getting 3 plants (Melon the easiest, Orange the intermediate and Banana the hardest). It is significant because the harder the fruit plant you get the easier the tree you get.
Making the third bag (Red One) the Tree seed bag. I have not quite chosen how the tree growing will work (Something to do with defending your tree from antlions :P) but I don’t know so far.
You’ll of course also need to use Fertilizer.
And will have a wide selection of tools to choose from.
So far only the bucket has a purpose of collecting soil and using it on the plant trays.
I’ve had a couple beta testers (Special thanks for Sechs for some help with the code) but so far all I have is an inventory system, being able to collect soil, using it on a tray, grabbing a seed and starting to grow a plant. I have not even had time to implement watering cans yet but will. The HUD is non-existant it’s just a blank slate and an inventory when you use F2. I will put a help for F1.
For the few days I have been working on this and how new I am to Lua I think i’ve done quite well. The test was fun and I got some good feedback and ideas.
The gamemode has a limited number of players it seems I get a really stupid error when I have more than 24 trays at once but I find that 24 is an ample ammount of players. I will update this with new pics ASAP.
