Farming question
Does farming stuff (e.g., wheat, cotton, trees) only grow on grass? And, what other conditions (if any) are placed on something growing?

Above ground crops can grow on dirt tiles. Nothing grows in winter except for mushrooms, which you need an underground farm for and mudplots(dirt that uve made wet through digging holes or opening a lake)

They grow on dirt also and they have to have direct sunlight to grow. Like In the summer you have a faster harvest cause you get more sunlight. Animals have to be placed on grass though and dont need sunlight. So you can make an animal house if you plan it right and get grass on the layers

Ok, thank you both! I'm gonna go build a warehouse of yaks and alpacas... With multiple floors!

Oh man, year 12? Wat?

Anyways... I assume you got the grass up there with dirt ramps?

Also, slightly off topic, but why did you decide to rely on dormitories?

And, last thing, Jesus has returned! And then he fell asleep.

lol Jesus... I did dorms cause im a bad King and didnt get around to rooms yet lol. Yes I used ramps. Last i heard though u got to put a soil block then use the ramp up on that block to make grass grow on it.

Alright, why isn't my stuff growing? It's on depth one, it has sunlight, it's on dirt, what's the matter with it?

Had all of winter to grow, then the 4 days of spring that went by.

Wait, never mind, I'm an impatient idiot, it's growing now.

This works but grass growth is a bit iffy at times. If u deconstruct or build something on a tile you might have to use the replace floor command get the grass to grow again.

would've thought someone would mention that clay sometimes pops up where you plan to farm, you can easily use " replace floor " with dirt blocks, to solve the issue, though. just FYI

What items can you grow on underground farms - just the mushrooms and whatever mudplots are or are there other seed types?

Nevermind - I found the wiki! :)
