Some tips and tricks for playing Agrarian Skies 2 are:
Use a watering can to speed up the growth of crops and trees. You can also use bonemeal on crops that are in crop sticks.
Use a trowel to move crops without breaking them. This is useful for breeding new seeds or moving them to a different location.
Use a hammer to break cobblestone into gravel, sand and dust. You can then sift these materials to get various resources, such as ores, seeds and mob drops.
Use a crucible to melt cobblestone into lava. You can then use lava to power a cobblestone generator or a magmatic dynamo. You can also use lava as a heat source for your crucibles, or upgrade to blazing pyrotheum for even faster melting.
Use autonomous activators to automate tasks that require right-clicking, such as sifting, harvesting crops or placing blocks. You can also use them to automate blood magic by placing a dagger of sacrifice inside and having them kill mobs on an altar.
Use culinary generators to generate power from food. Toast sandwiches are easy to make and provide 32 rf/tick. You can also use other foods, such as cake or meaty stew, for more power.
Use pneumatic servos to control the flow of items or fluids in ducts. You can also use filters, retrievers or itemducts with different colors to sort items.
Use an ME system to store and access your items. You will need a controller, an ME drive, some storage cells and an ME terminal. You can also use ME buses, cables and interfaces to connect your machines and inventories to the network.
Use a smeltery to smelt ores and metals. You can also use it to make alloys, cast tools and weapons, or melt down unwanted items for resources.
Use a mob farm to get mob drops and experience. You can use fans, conveyor belts or vector plates to move mobs into a killing area. You can also use spikes, grinders or autonomous activators with weapons to kill them.
Agrarian Skies 2 is a modpack that will test your skills and knowledge of various mods. It is not an easy pack, but it is rewarding and fun. If you are looking for a skyblock challenge with a lot of quests and mods, Agrarian Skies 2 is the modpack for you.
