Can I find wild carrots and potatoes?

#1CerebornPosted 11/11/2012 12:25:58 AM
I'm starting up for the first time since the update, and I'm wondering what the method is for getting carrots and potatoes. If need be, I'll steal some from my villagers.

Zombies will very rarely drop both Carrots and Potatoes. However, unless you have a mob grinder, don't expect to get a lot from them that way. It's best to just steal a few from your Villagers, and replace them later if you have goodness in your heart.

They can be found in jungles, villages and from zombies.

Harvesting carrots gives you like 2-3 so you can take some from them and replant on the spot. That's how I did since it's the easiest way to come by them.

One of these days I hope to find carrots in a jungle. I know they're out there, somewhere, but are probably hidden underneath leaves or something. Jungle grass and jungle tree leaves are of such a rich green color that it's really hard for me to find small green leaves growing out of the ground.

A few days later I was watching videos and decided to let the zombies accumulate on my grinder. After a while there were ~500 in the pit. Killed them all and got ONLY ONE POTATO.

Can anyone comment on how frequently carrots and potatoes spawn in new villages? The person in charge of my server added a village mod and all the villages I've seen (about 4) haven't had any new veggies. I'm concerned that the mod is causing an issue.

I started a 1.4.2 world and have come across two desert villages with wheat/carrot/potato farms.

So that's 2/2 so far for me.
