bee hives (for food and crop polination)

53 posts in this topic

Yes, probably. But only if fishes like it.

It could be a special kind of somewhat-rare bait, which could allow certain, semi-rare fish to be caught.

Worms and other such things should be the main fish bait.

okey okey. but it would be nothing like forestry, you dont just pop bees in a machine and boom honey, it would have to be much more complex

+1 for more complexity

and thanks for agreeing i like beekeeping and think it can be made to be one of those server resources that people that dont know how or dont have the means to get (in the surrounding area) trade for with other people in the server!

so how do you guys think it should be implemented?

and lets try to think out of the (forestry coff..) box for a whille!

Currently we aren't in the (forestry coff...) box, because we are suggesting a very different kind of bees and the crop polination is a very good part that this mod needs, not to be R... but only to have fun while playing. When you get up in the morning you can see these bees. You think "what a beautiful day". Of course if you are allergic to bee stings you want to kill them.

However these bees are not going to produce industrial srings, mossy cobble or other crazy things...

use it as a bait for fishing? (ok i got stop thinking about fishing)

that way we can link things toggether like the use of crops to feed the animals kind of thing...

Yes, and maybe if the animals are free and hungry, they destroy all your garden. Especially pigs.

This will also force you to kill them in the early game, making animals more difficult to manage...Whoops...I'm off-topic.

We want also new flowers for the bees, don't you think? Now I don't know what types, but before or after they will appear.

Bees should be attracted to flowers and roses. So if you're in a mountainous area without flowers there won't be too many bees, but if you're in a jungle or something you might have to worry about bees slightly more.

well "reviving" a thread isnt a bad thing

the bad thing is when you "necro" a thread by reviving it by taying something like "i liek dis stehrf"

Bees would certainly help make the world seem more alive. (pigs, cows, chicken, and sheep don't cut it). But would honey really be useful enough to code it in (instead of some other feature)?

... and yes, bees, mead, honey, wax, and pollination in agriculture are all ideas I can stand behind.

Like this idea, it would be cool if the bees were mobs that spawned in like any other, then they would come togheter with other mobs and build from any overhanging block(meaning you could get a bee infestation inside a building if you left it unattended) you could transfer bee's to an artificial hive and harvest honey an stuff.

I prefer DF-style apiaries, because it requires the player to put in the work of actually maintaining more than one hive at once. Nothing against Forestry, but... A lot against Forestry. It's a good adaptation of bees within vMC, but it definitely wouldn't fit here.

Also, DF-style apiaries would be much easier to manufacture (player-side. No idea as to the coding aspect of either type of apiary.)

Remember that bees are only an idea for now and need a lot of things to become official. They don't exist, so it's normal that you prefer the df or forestry bees.

Maybe beehives spawn in chunks with x number fruit trees and flowers. Bees will fly around the hive as particles, bees will visit fruit trees making said fruit trees grow its fruit quicker. When the bee gets back to the hive, some honey is produced. Every x number of days, the hive makes another bee particle group. (The particles act like any bee mob would)

Yes. This makes sense. Good, a very good idea involving fruit trees.

Thanks, I'm just not sure if particles can act as a mob. Can they?

i think a moving texture would be better. I doubt particles could be manipulated that way, although a moving texture would only support bees on the faces, the middle would look rather empty...

No, I don't think. Only entities can do this.

a entity could be made that consists of only a point where particles exist(think of blazes and endermen)

What if we just used a generic bee cloud mob which just a lot of particles rotating around a point. That would serve the same purpose easily.

To make things a little cleaner we could switch the flower texture to include multiple flowers. If possible we could make the bees 'land' that would also be a nice touch.

Do you mean a bee swarm? Yes, but every bee hive needs to have at least 2 of them, max 5.

Ok. Well, the bee hive already has a "Swarm" so to speak. In my idea there's a fictional swarm keeping the hive prepared (the particles around the hive) while there's another swarm pollinating and collecting honey making stuff. So, starts with 1 functional and keeps gaining after every x amount of honey produced. When there's 7 collector bees, two move away and form their own hive over a period of months.
