    So yes, having a block at the other end is the intended use. Just not the normal blocks. :D

    That seems to really limit the bore lense's use without some real trickery and thinking outside the box.

    Is there a way to stack lense effects? Something like that would allow combining the bore and bounce lense for mining by bouncing the beam off obsidian/bedrock underground.

    Looks like Factorization and Ars Magica had a baby.

    For destroying a water source block, those Hydragneas don't give very much power. And even with using just wood the Enderflames give quite a bit.

    I did some testing on making a movable mining platform using the bore lense. It's not very feasable just yet though.


    I'm feeding the water flowers buckets from an autonamous activator and dispenser. Also, Feeding the Enderflames wood from a golem tree farm and dropper. Just playing around, these can be vastly more efficient I'm sure.

    While botania is in development can you as a creative only infinite mana well and a debuger that posts the exact amount of mana being stored in chat?

    I found an issue that you may have fixed in v11. The particles of mana shot at a mana void don't stop when they hit the void that keep on going for about 20 more blocks

    That's... weird. I haven't come across that.

    So vazkii, a few compatibility issues and ideas. I have a large amount of mods with your mod and when I initially started I tried using harvestcraft seeds, which didn't work, so i tried pumpkin, also didn't work, finally only wheat seeds worked. Do you think you could make it so any seed can be used? Also, i have a few hydroangeas but have newer seen them suck up water from my infinite pool, do you think you could gie them some kind of slurping noise when the suck water so people can know that they're working? Also, I was wondering if we could get some kind of growth beam that acts like bonemeal sorta? What do you think? P.S. I LOVE this mod, its so easy to get started and it isn't too late game though I wish mana genned faster, I have 15 dayblooms and 2 hydroangeas and not even enough mana for a mana pearl. Anyway, GREAT MOD!

    I've noticed they only take water on the same level as them. I think the range is a 1 block radius around the flower. So something like this would work good.

    I've got a question about the new mana tablets. Do they follow despawn rules?

    With a lot of these botania systems needing thrown items, it looks like the vanilla dropper is going to be the main item needed for automating.
