Basically, the bonemeal is not much of use in Minecraft. It does not do many things except perhaps a few standard purposes. This is the reason why Minecraft players sometimes do not want it crowding the inventory. However, the so-called ExpandedBonemeal mod for Minecraft is going to help put that bonemeal to use. Thus, it will be a great advantage if you have so many bonemeals ready for use or that you don’t have any clue what to do with it.
The Original Bonemeal
The original bonemeal is not an item that is very much useful. It is actually a material that a Minecraft player can use as a dye or a fertilizer for plant life. As a dye, it can be used on sheep wool and collars of tamed wolves. It can also be used to dye stain beds, leather armor, glass, and terracotta. Moreover, it can be used as gunpowder. However, the ExpandedBonemeal mod is more useful as the fertilizer function of the original bonemeal.
As a fertilizer, the bonemeal can grow seeds, carrots, potatoes, and beetroots. It can also grow sunflowers, mushrooms, ferns, lilacs, and rosebushes. Tall flowery grasses are also helped by the bonemeal. Cocoa and saplings are also featured. All these fertilizer functions are maximized and enhanced multiple times by this mod.
Non-Farm Plant Growth Functions
The significant advantage of this mod is that it gives your Minecraft game a whole new set of recipes from which you can create a few useful pieces of stuff to use. In short, this mod provides bonemeal with various types of useful functionalities.
Some of the expanded features of the mod include being able to grow chorus flowers, sugar canes, cactuses, vines and nether warts. Other functions include the ability to turn stone bricks and cobblestones into mossy versions. The mod also has this ability to duplicate flower items and lily pads. It can also produce dead bushes on hardened clay or sand.
Farm Growth Functions
The ExpandedBonemeal mod can also produce melons and pumpkins from mature stems. It can also hasten the growth of seedlings and widen their farming sections. Although the bonemeal is nerfed down in its previous versions, it can actually be used to automatically make plants mature with a single click. Thus, it can definitely make the plant environment more alive.
With the featured mod, the numerous plants in your backyards and farms ranging from the watermelons to the melons bring forth new seedlings and mature plants in almost an instant. This amazing quality of the ExpandedBonemeal makes use of the once dormant bonemeals to magically produce plant life for Minecraft gamers.
A few reminders to you players would be to install Minecraft Forge to make ExpandedBonemeal mod function properly. Another thing to remember is to customize this mod to your advantage. In fact, with this mod, you can turn on or off several abilities and functionalities that it brings.
The ExpandedBonemeal mod 1.12.2 has had its latest update in January 2017. So far, it has already the 1.11.2, 1.10.2 and 1.9.4 versions. Definitely, it is not impossible that more improved versions are on the way.
The featured mod has revived the bonemeal’s seeming lack of utility. With the creation of this mod, the original bonemeal’s fertilizer properties have been maximized. Now, it can also duplicate lily pads instantly. It can also grow cactuses and vines as well as all vegetable seeds fast. ExpandedBonemeal mod can produce mossy cobblestones, mature plants and an overall attractive environment teeming with fresh plant life with just one click.
