Adds in bees as an alternate way to gather raw resources. Similar to the forestry mod for Minecraft.

This mod is not easy. You're going to be dealing with looping resources, fluid control, optional circuitry, and local throughput. However if you manage to set up all your production lines correctly you can definitely get a respectable ore output

Start with honey production. Make queens that give birth to larva. Larva can grow into different bee castes, the worker and the queen. Once you have a steady stream of resources for your colony, experiment with genetic mutation in order to collect different species of bees. Use the extra larva from the above loop to create honey and royal jelly, which can then be used to create queens for different ore types. These queens give birth to more larva which can be turned into ores

The mod is designed to be fully dynamic, and will react to any ores in your mod list

If paired with angel's refining, the mod will create a new recipe for ores that uses mineral sludge instead of water in case you wanted to combine ore production paths

If paired with seablock, the mod will try to balance itself accordingly. Resources cannot be produced with bees alone. You must now use bees with the sulfur loop in order to create raw materials effectively

Other features

  • A logistic beehive that has no charging ports and a tiny logistic area, but has a small footprint and is suited for logistic bees. Logistic bees have low stack sizes, and slowish speed, but don't require power. (Can be disabled in mod options)
  • Propolis ammo, which is really just a way to void extra mutated propolis gained from genetic mutation
  • You can get oil from coal bees + coal liquefaction
