                    Thank you skunkmunkee for the showcase on your YouTube channel!

                    How To Use

                    You will be given a bee book if you jump on an unmarked beehive if you don't have the book in your inventory. The bee book will have useful information on bee breeds as well as settings for Admins. Options are bee aging speed and max generation level for bees to produce products.

                    Place a bee hive and jump on top to place the data pack functions on that hive. The bee hive will be labeled "Bee Hive"

                    Hold a Oak Log in your off hand to breed two bees together to create a Oak_LVL01 bee.

                    Breed the bees away from lower levels of bees to increase the level of the next baby bee. If there is a bee 1 level below and less than 6 blocks away, then you wont get the next level of bee.

                    When the hive is a max level hive then the hive will produce it's product. The item will drop from the hive on to the ground so place a hopper under the hive to catch the item.

                    The hive will change production to the level of the bee in the first data slot of the NBT data in the hive block, so try to keep your bees separated by distance or enclose with fencing.

                    Higher tier bees will need to be breed from two different max level bees. Example is an iron ingot bee will be breed from a max level Oak and a max level Cobblestone bee while holding a iron ingot in your off hand. Level your bees all the way up to diamond by cross breeding max level bees.

                    Non-Licensed
                    You have the right to share, use, and build upon this datapack for anything you wish, ENJOY!

                    What other kinds of resources do you want from your bees? What prerequisite or requirement would they require to attain them? I would like to add more items to this data pack.

                    Ok so I downloaded the pack and everything was going good except for the times I randomly hit the wrong key and caused chaos in the aviary. But now I have noticed that the bees will become aggressive for no apparent reason. Example, I had just bred a LVL1 sand bee and then tied it to a lead to a fence post. All good so far. As soon as other bees exited their respected hives, the baby turned aggressive towards me. I was doing nothing at the time. I thought others were turning aggressive upon leaving the hive but thought I did something to make them that way. Any thoughts?

                    Curious to see the anger timer on that bee as this pack doesn't touch that value. You can see how much longer in ticks the bee has left to bee angry. Maybe it adds up if you hit too many bees at one given time.
                    The command is below for the closest bee to see the anger ticks left:

                    /data get entity @e[type=minecraft:bee,limit=1,sort=nearest] Anger

                    Must be a Minecraft feature as this pack only changes the Age value and adds some tags to the bees.

                    I'll keep a closer eye on it tonight when I get home. I'll try and look for any possible triggers that may anger them. Even when other bees were in sight, only the baby was angered. I thought maybe the hopper that was catching the gravel was acting like shears with no campfire underneath. Just gets aggravating when a level 3 stings ya and dies off and you have to start over again. I'll let you know what I find out.

                    Ok so started the game back up. Was in enclosure (18x18) with 5 nests. 2 gravel, 2 oak and one sand. Nothing unusual then I put a Peony in hand and an adult got angered. Then some time passed and I had 2 adults leashed with leads, both level one sand. Baby was free roaming. As soon as a bee exited a hive, the 2 leashed adults and the baby went postal. The anger only lasted maybe 5 seconds and they were back to normal. I have a small 1x2 shelter in the enclosure to keep an eye on things and as an escape room. I did change the growth time to 0=4x speed. Will change back to default speed to see if anything changes.

                    i've had my gravel bees turn into oak bees, will there be a fix for this? my hives are a few blocks apart and sometimes the bees go into hives that arent theirs. any way you can make it so that bees can't go into neighboring hives?

                    Update is out. Aging speed can also be changed. The default speed is 4x (6000 game ticks), the same time as the breeding cool down. Now your baby bees should be adults about the same time it takes bees to breed again! About 5 minutes if you have them tied up with a lead or holding a flower.

                    I will remove the feature where the first bees tags are copied over to the second and third bees in the hive. I wanted the first bee in the hive to covert the rest of the bees over to the same type of bee. But that causes your issue. I'm also planning on the admin to be able to shorten the time span for the young bee to adulthood. Options will be 4x, 2x, or minecraft default.

                    For those running this on a server. If you want your area and animals protected from damage from other people, I suggest getting my other data pack as well. Players can still use gates and leads to kidnap your bees so you will have to fence in your animals completely. They just can't damage blocks or animals within your claim.

                    great datapack, thanks for putting in the time for this. i just went through leveling up 1 through 5 and i have to say that its really mind numbing waiting for the bees to be able to breed again. im sure you know this but ~30 mins just to get to the next level bee - it's just too long if i have to do this 5 times from level 1 to 5. perhaps lowering the minimum level to produce resources/being able to crossbreed would be a more fair compensation of the time put in. or maybe an item to speed up the process of leveling up bees faster. would love to see this datapack become more polished

                    Update with "Easy Mode" as default mode, max bee level required is 3 and better yet... Your suggested tiered system as a "Medium Mode". The mode can be changed by an Admin.

                    Would lowering the max level from 5 to 3 be ok? I wanted it very hard and time consuming to keep high level tiers out of the game until very late into the game. I wanted it to be very rare to have or see a Diamond_LVL05 bee on a sever raise by another player.

                    you could maybe set the max levels for each item according to an item's rarity. for an example, a log bee's max level would be 3 while a diamond bee's max level would be 5.

                    tier 1 resources would have a max level 3 with the resources being wood, cobble, gravel etc.
                    tier 2 would have max level 4 with iron, coal, gold etc.
                    tier 3 would have max level 5 with diamond, elytra, shulker etc.

                    while i do agree something rare and valuable should take more time, it might take TOO much time. i personally use villager breeders, iron golem farms, and set up a villager trading area where i can trade for diamond tools and armor. the amount of time and effort in setting up these things compared to waiting for bees to be able to breed from oak to diamond as of now, i would very much prefer setting up these other farms than waiting for the bees. i would like to see bees become a good equal alternative to building and creating villager farms.

                    you have a great unique datapack it's like an actual mod. for now, maybe just separate items into tiers. thanks for the hard work!

                    I agree with you. I am currently moving everything to 3 levels max. I do like your tiered idea lots. I'm thinking of letting the server admin pick if they want it 3 levels, or 3-5 levels or locked at 5 levels max using a trigger command to change the settings in chat. Like an easy, medium, or hard setting.

                    I mean this is actually a semi-cool version of the magical bees mod, which is famously tedious and bashed, maybe make naturally generated bees have a chance to convert to things like mid-tier or low-tier bees? Other inspiration from the mod; food items or recipes, or things like auto-breeders/processing methods to separate/recycle bees?

                    What about potion bees? I would’ve thought of:



                    Bee of healing (gives Potion of Instant Health)
                    Hold in hand an Arrow of Instant Health

                    Bee of damage (gives Potion of Instant Damage)
                    Hold in hand an Arrow of Instant Damage

                    All the negative potion bees would be bred from 2 Bees of damage while holding the required item used in the brewing stand whereas the positive potion bees would be bred from 2 Bees of healing while holding the required item on the brewing stand.

                    Maybe it’s a complicated update, but it would be pretty cool to see massive AFK regeneration potion farms.

                    I am unable to summon a potion as an item entity like I do the rest of the items under a hive. The potion instantly breaks open releasing it's effects.

                    Two commands I tried:

                    summon minecraft:potion ~ ~2 ~ {Potion:{id:"minecraft:potion",Count:1b,tag:{Potion:"minecraft:strong_healing"}}}
                    summon minecraft:item ~ ~2 ~ {Potion:{id:"minecraft:potion",Count:1b,tag:{Potion:"minecraft:strong_healing"}}}

                    Both ways work, I thought of names first and evolved from there. I wanted to visually see the bee type and hive type so I kept the naming system. I had no plans on how to do this, so I just started building until the commands worked.

                    Multiple times I was at a stand still not knowing how to accomplish what I wanted to do. I just remember playing the Forestry - Bee Keeping mod and wanted to have a way to get items from bees. I am still learning and tags are not my strong suit. I love learning new things and tinkering with data packs. I almost got in over my head with this one.

                    I spent weeks looking for a data pack to bring back the enjoyment of playing with bees. I couldn't find one so I started to create one. I just love how Forestry - Bee Keeping MOD is built around cross-breeding and finding rare bees. I do not have the talent yet to pull something off as well as they did.

                    I hope this pack inspires someone to make something better than what I can do. If there is someone out there that can make bees fun and exciting please do so, even if it means stealing my idea. I would love to see what the community can offer us beekeepers such as bee suits, smokers, mite control, grafting/raising queens, disease treatments, and more!
