Ever wanted to have a better renewable Apple system while also not having to fiddle with custom items or resource packs? Well lucky you, 'cause I figured out how to make it so bees can pollinate trees like crops!

- Works in 1.16 and while not tested, should work in the latest Snapshots.
- Datapack not appearing when adding it to a world? BE SURE TO EXTRACT THE FILE!

Once a day, a Bee carrying Pollen can pollinate any Leaf block that is adjacent to it. Note that it doesn't necessarily require the bee to be adjacent to a tree structure, any combination of leaves will do.
Bees may only pollinate a tree once a day! As well, they can only do so if they haven't pollinated any crops yet, but once it does pollinate a tree, it can still pollinate up to 5 extra crops for the rest of the day.

As well, there is a small chance for the bee to spawn a Golden Apple instead of a regular apple! Who said beekeeping is a fruitless endeavor?

If you ever want to remove the Datapack, be sure to hit the [​Disable] button that appears when you do /reload. This will also remove the scoreboards, so no need to worry about clutter!

Be sure to let me know what you guys think in the comments, as well as any bugs or features you want added to this. I plan in the future to add this to a much larger Farming Overhaul datapack, so suggest away!

So, this just doesn't work on Multiplay AT ALL so if you could fix that, that would be great

This are the kind of things what I like datapacks, solve simple simple problems that should were integrated to the game in a very interesting way. This will be an amaizing addition for my farms.

The only "issue" is that it's still Oak Trees that generate these things we're supposed to think are apples.

If you don't want to eat oak apples you can buy them from villagers, it's very easy and doesn't take long.

Seems pretty cool! Wonder if I can integrate leaves into my auto bee farms seamlessly. Like maybe replacing the glass with leaves? Definitely want to try this at some point. Interesting idea!

If you come up with a design for your farm, definitely share it! I'm curious to see how efficient it could end up being. :D
