MCLabs has several chem types, each with a different farming method and selling price. Understanding the creation process and price of each chem is the key to choosing which chem(s) to focus on.
Raw chems are the vanilla Minecraft crops that are harvested. Some harvested items require one step of crafting to turn into the raw chem item, but most can be sold directly after harvesting.
|Chem Name||Minecraft Name||Former Name||Best World to Farm|
|Wheatium||Wheat||High Quality Weed||Farm-M|
|Shroomium-R||Red Mushroom||Red Shrooms||Farm-A|
|Shroomium-B||Brown Mushrooms||Brown Shrooms||Farm-A|
Processed Chems & Non-Chem Ingredients
Processed chems are raw chems that take one more step to process. This can be either in the form of smelting a raw chem, or crafting it with a non-chem item. There are also some non-chem ingredients that cannot be sold, but are required for some combinations.
|Processed Chems & Non-Chem Ingredients|
|Item Name||Former Name||How to Get|
|Cactinide||THC Oil||Craft Green Dye with Bonemeal|
|Cocobinide||Fire-Cured Tobacco||Smelt Cocoa Beans|
|Chorufrinide||Processed Codeine||Smelt Chorus Fruit|
|Butane||Butane||Purchase from /shop|
Chem combinations are custom items that result from the combination of two or more chems, and sometimes other items. Chem combinations can be crafted in a crafting table, or made quicker in /lab (starting at Bioengineer rank).
Chem combinations are always quicker to sell, and can be worth more than the sum of the prices of their parts. The prices of combinations are based on the prices of the ingredients and their ratios, and may also have small price boost for extra steps like smelting and requiring ingredients that are combos.
Some combinations are more difficult to make than others. The Chem Lab gives each combination a difficulty rating out of 5.
- Difficulty levels of 1-2 are considered "Beginner Chem Combinations". These are made of chems that are easy to farm, and the crafting is simple.
- Difficulty levels of 3-4 are considered "Intermediate Chem Combinations". These can be more difficult to farm and craft, but usually sell for more.
- A difficult level of 5 is considered a "Advanced Chem Combination". These take multiple ingredients, and may have multiple steps to obtain the final product, and are often the most valuable.
