The Cropnalyzer is used to scan Seed Bags dropped from harvested Crops.

To open the interface, right-click with the Cropnalyzer. In the GUI, put the Seed Bag in the upper left slot and a charged RE Battery, LapPack, or Energy Crystal in the upper right slot.

Scanning Seeds

It takes four scans to fully identify a Seed Bag. 

Scan One

The first scan will only show the name of the plant.

Scan Two

The second scan will show the plant's Tier (which ranges from 1-8) and who "discovered" the plant. (For Vanilla Minecraft plants, the discoverer will be Notch; for other plants it will be the nickname of the developer who added it to IndustrialCraft.)

Scan Three

The third scan will show the keywords of the plant. Cross Breeding uses keywords to an extent to determine which new plants to grow, however Tier closeness also plays an important role.

Scan Four

The fourth, and final scan, will show the Growth, Gain, and Resistance (GGR) scores for that Seed Bag. The GGR scores are independent for each Seed Bag.

The first three scans don't require much energy, but the fourth scan uses much more and will completely drain an RE Battery. Additional scans will not provide any additional information and will not use any additional energy.


Bugs and Errors

  • The Cropnalyzer has been known to cause issues in multiplayer, such as items no longer stacking properly in the inventory. Currently, the simplest fix seems to be emptying the inventory, except for the Seed Bag, Cropnalyzer, and Battery, before using the device.
