Hi all, I know its early in the piece and the new snapshot is bound to be filled with bugs (hehehe) but I seem to be experiencing a bug that is preventing any bees from cultivating honey once I move them to a player-made hive. While living in the nest in which they spawned, the bees are prosperous and making honey quickly and efficiently, but even when they are carrying pollen and entering the man-made hive, they honey level won't go up at all. This is happening in 2 different worlds that I have generated today, one with a seed I found online, and one with a random new seed.
Anyone else experiencing the same problem? I'm not really expecting there to be a fix for this yet, but I want to hear your experiences. Cheers
Thank you for responding, Jeheace and FelixPath! I'll try the creative mode trick to get my bee boxes going. If either of you/anyone else has more insight into this issue or any thoughts please post! I am so so very excited about Minecraft bees, I would love to talk more and learn about them!
This might help, I don't know. I'd had Campfires at two of the same height, with a 1-(Air )Block gap under each of them.
I was having a lot of Bees disappear. So I Blocked-in the former (hoping they wouldn't get caught popping-out above the Campfire).
And as for the latter, I raised the height to just-under the Bee nest, of the Campfire. In the former case, the Bees-remained, and pop-out every time I Harvest the Honey (to get more? bus-y!).
But in the latter, it seems that at least once I'd seen a Bee (uncertain size: the small ones look big to me, too; they also move too fast for me to check their other features, so far) turning red and disappearing (possibly a "poof," but those're sometimes hard to see), so possibly-dying. From contact from the Campfire.
In the Blocked-in former case, I still have around-(the "standard" so-far )3 Bees in it, and I'm hoping this means they would pop-out sideways or from the front (possible since I see them each time I get Honey, come out), instead of underneath where the Campfire might get them before they go-in again. I've Bred and had a Lot of Bees (dozens?) from each, but while the former'd mostly "Migrated" away, there are No Bees left in the latter Nest (with other Nests not having as much Campfire exposure /any having no problems).
For me the only problem is no Bees, no (new) Honey ("level[s]"). And just waiting for Bee hives to work, too.
