Vanilla Plants Expanded – Mushrooms Mod

Authors of the Vanilla Plants Expanded – Mushrooms Mod: Oskar Potocki, Sarg Bjornson, Taranchuk

Vanilla Plants Expanded – Mushrooms is an optional module for Vanilla Plants Expanded adding a variety of new mushrooms. One common concern people have expressed is that being a tunneler – or simply living underground – prevents you from obtaining quite a lot of different, important resources.

As such, we come to the rescue. A lot of these mushrooms will fill the empty holes in your tunneler colonies – you will now be able to produce medicine, wood, food, cloth, electricity, meat and even magic mushrooms underground!

None of these mushrooms are inspired by real life mushrooms, but they are all really cool and I’m sure if you give them a chance, they will grow on you.

Vanilla Plants Expanded – Mushrooms Mod features

Vanilla Plants Expanded – Mushrooms content and mechanics can be seen described below:


Q: Do these plants spawn in the wild?
A: Yes, some of them may appear in the wild – mostly in caves!

Q: Does it work alongside virtually any other mushroom mod out there?
A: You bet it does!

Q: How do I plant these mushrooms?
A: Depends which ones. Some grow on dirt, others can grow on rock, others can only grow in flower pots.

Q: Can animals eat them?
A: All mushrooms have nutrition and can be eaten by animals. Some produce fungus that can be eaten.

Q: Can I suggest a feature?
A: Absolutely, leave a comment down below!

Q: Will you keep updating the mod with new types of mushrooms?
A: Potentially!

Q: Is this mod save game compatible?
A: Yes, you can add it and remove it whenever you like.

Q: These plants are totally unrealistic!
A: We need to remember it is a video game, and for the sake of simplicity we decided to abandon realism in some instances. Sometimes realism is just boring, especially in such an unrealistic game. We decided that unique gameplay should be prioritised over realism.

Q: CE compatible?
A: The day mushrooms start firing assault rifles is the day I should stop modding. That being said, we are working on a mushroom-man xenotype, which will fire assault rifles, so maybe I should take that back.
