Creation Quest: Marsh Expert
WARNING: This section or article may contain spoilers!
| Marsh Expert|
|Preceding||Exploring the Desert|
|Time Limit||1048 hours|
|Reward||1 Vegetarian Curry|
Now that you've explored the forest and the desert, it is time to gather information on the swamps in this world. Fortunately, Sadhu Vidya mentions that you do not have to do this yourself. Instead you will have to find those who have lived all their life in the marshes, the Adivasi farmers. Despite being looked down upon by the general population, these farmers are quite observant and their knowledge will help the Sadhu and you tremendously.
The task is simple in essence, find an Adivasi farmer's hamlet, ask for their help, and return. You can also walk back to an earlier found Adivasi farmer's hamlet. Any will do. The Adivasi ka Ghar, that's the official name for this hamlet, spawns in the Swampland biome.
When you have arrived at the farmers, they will gladly offer your their knowledge and give you several items to bring back to the Sadhu. If all is well, then you should get from them:
- 1 Red Mushroom
- 1 Brown Mushroom
- 1 Vine
- 1 Vegetarian Curry
The first three items on that list are required to complete the quest. The last item, the vegetarian curry, is an extra reward for yourself to use.
Now, return to the Sadhu, and give the necessary items to finish the quest. Rest a bit and prepare for another exploration challenge.
From the Adivasi farmers, you will get a vegetarian curry, and upon completing the quest, you will gain 128 reputation from the Sadhu.
 Additional Information
Finding the farm in this quest can be quite tedious. If you are even a bit unlucky, then new villages or lone buildings spawned near the unexplored marshlands can prevent a farm from spawning.
If you've explored for kilometers after kilometers and are still out of luck, then you might want to try the advice of a Minecraft-forum user named MassesOfMinecraft.
Be aware, use this at your own risk. Be smart and backup your save first, in case something goes wrong.
|“||By far I think the swamp one is the hardest. I've eventually made it on 2 maps, but you can explore for probably days without meeting the right conditions. It's easy to find a Desert, it's easy to find a Forest, but with this, not only do you have to find a Swamp, you also need to find a Swamp that generated a Lone Building that happened to be an Adivasi Farm.
With every section of Swamp, either it's there or it isn't, but you're at the mercy of a Random Number Generator to complete that section of your quest. In an ideal world, you would have stumbled across one already and would know where to find it. (For funsies, you can check: .minecraft\saves\YOURWORLDHERE\millenaire\lonebuildings.txt and you can look for adivasifarm;hindi but odds are you haven't generated one yet.)
All you can do is keep exploring. And keep exploring. The current map I'm playing has yet to generate one, so I sympathize. Something I just thought of, though: There are config options:
//Lone buildings generate_lone_buildings=true //Min distance between a lone building and a village min_village_lonebuilding_distance=300 //Min distance between two lone buildings min_lonebuilding_distance=600
You would do best by switching those out with lower numbers, which I presume would have to increase your odds of getting an Adivasi Farm. That's the only proactive thing I can think of.
Edit: It was really quick. I added in config-custom.txt:
//Min distance between a lone building and a village min_village_lonebuilding_distance=100 //Min distance between two lone buildings min_lonebuilding_distance=150I explored another swamp, it generated a village and a Lone Building, and lo and behold, I got an Adivasi Farm. Now I'll remove it from custom-config.txt or else it may make things a bit crazy.
You can also find a red mushroom, a Brown mushroom and Vines without the advasi farmer. Thats What i did at least
- As of 2.0.7, you will be informed of the creation of the required hamlet, and they can generate in an already explored chunk.
- The users of the Extra Biomes mod can also encounter the farm in a Lush Swamplands biome.
- Before version 2.6, this quest had Exploring the Mountains as its follow-up.
There is this bug that the adivasi farmers wont talk to you and you cannot complete the quest even if you find another adivasi farm they wont talk to you so if anyone knows how to fix this please add it to this page.
