silent running

Posted by kaini , 18 November 2010 · 2,109 views

presently making a library, and trying to develop a 'silent running' style biodome.
there seems to be a random element involved in if a tree sprouts or not. which is a huge pain in the ass.

I think whether the tree grows or not is dependent on the amount of light it gets.

Saplings can be planted on any dirt or grass block, and will grow into a new tree if they are exposed to a light level of at least 12, and have at least 5 empty blocks above the sapling "block" itself. They will pop out of the ground if they are not exposed to a light level of at least 8, but will not pop out of the ground if they do not have enough headroom, provided they still have sufficient light. In this way they can be used as decoration in structures provided they don't have room to grow into full trees, or are never exposed to a light level of 12 or more. This also applies to saplings in The Nether.

A light level of 12 is provided by an adjacent torch, so saplings can grow into trees underground with just one adjacent torch. It should be noted that while moonlight has a brightness of 4, saplings will not pop out of the ground when exposed to moonlight - they will survive low light provided they have a "clear view" of the sky.
