ThaumicBees adds several new bee species to Forestry that will assist in producing useful items for Thaumcraft. If you love Thaumcraft and Beekeeping, these new species will provide extra resources and benefits to those clever enough to obtain them.
As of Thaumic Bees 1.4.4, Thaumcraft 3 is an optional addon, not a dependency. Features that require TC3 will become inactive if it is not present, but TB will still run.
The main focus of Thaumic Bees was making Forestry and Thaumcraft play nicely together. My next goal is to expand the support set of the mod to add bees for several magic-themed mods, much the way that Extra Bees adds Forestry extras for tech-themed mods.
Thaumic Bees adds several new bee species that will produce items relevant to supported mods that you may have installed. Other items, such as capsules that hold more than one bucket of water, are also added.
Thaumic Bees depends on Forestry, which is required. You may download Forestry on the Forestry Wiki.
Minecraft Forge is also needed. Usually, the version that Forestry wants is good enough for Thaumic Bees.
Adding the following mods will result in additional features being unlocked:
- Extra Bees - Mutations to get the Thaumic Bees species will use Extra Bees species in some cases. If Thaumcraft is installed, TB will add aspects to Extra Bees items. You will also get access to Thaumic Bees alleles though the genetic machines.
- Thaumcraft 3 - Adds several tools related to Thaumcraft & Forestry, as well as adding Thaumcraft aspects to many Forestry items and blocks.
- Equivalent Exchange 3 - Adds the Minium Bee, which produces Minium Shards. More features to come in the future.
- Ars Magica - Adds 13 bee species that interact with Ars Magica, or produce AM items.
- More to come as I get permission.
- Tinker's Construct
- Divine RPG
... is easy! Just drop into your mods folder next to Forestry!
Note: Please ensure you grab the version that matches your version of Forestry! ThaumicBees WILL NOT START if you use an earlier version of Forestry. later versions may not function due to API changes.
Please use the latest build whenever possible.

Two bee lines create the foundation of Thaumic Bees - The Supernatural and Arcane branch. It is said that only one who is both studious and refined may enter the world of the Supernatural, while the Arcane power of magic has both a devilish, yet commanding quality to it. Neither branch is particularly easy to advance, and you may find yourself exhausting your courage as you travel to the ends of the world to find mates that will propel your bees farther into the world of Magic.

None yet. Got a video? Send me a link and I'll add it here.
You should add the Forestry tree-breeding mechanics to Greatwood and Silverwood!
Yes, it's something I will be doing, so for the love of the Great Prophet Zarquon, stop asking!
I want to wait until I can integrate seamlessly with Extra Trees, and the tree breeding mechanics are a little bit more well-established.
So seriously. Stop asking.
Is Thaumic Bees compatible with X version of Forestry?
All download links display the version they were built against. Minor versions to Forestry after the listed number are usually okay (for example, TB for Forestry 220.127.116.11 should work fine with Forestry 18.104.22.168). Major revision numbers may have API changes, which will cause Thaumic Bees to get headaches.
Does Thaumic Bees have any worldgen? Or, Can I put Thaumic Bees on my Server/Single Player World and still get everything?
This addon has some worldgen which is not critical for advancement, meaning you can place it on an established server or single player world and still obtain all the features included. All of the bees are obtained via breeding Forestry bees. Presently, the only items in worldgen are "extra" bits of dungeon loot.
Note: I reserve the right to change this in the future.
Can I add Thaumic Bees to my modpack?
Yes! You don't need to PM me about it, you can add it.
Other mods that TB has support for may not be under different licensing schemes, so be sure to check those out before you blithely add them into a modpack.
As of version 1.4.0, Thaumic Bees supports localization for item names and many bee descriptions, including names, effects and branches. I have placed the localization files in a public repository, so if you want TB to support your particular language, you can create an XML file for it!
Repository on Github
I will be accepting any PRs that edit or add new languages to Thaumic Bees. As a rule, en_US.xml will be the file you want to work off of when editing or adding new languages or tags.
If you encounter an issue while running Thaumic Bees, check the crash logs to see if it is actually Thaumic Bees's fault it went wrong, and that Forestry and Thaumcraft (and Extra Bees if you have it) started up correctly. For some reason, these errors may not appear in your client's log, you will have to check the full ForgeModLoader client log for Forestry problems. The best way to do this is to open the file and search for the term "conflict". If you do not see any matches, then report the issue in this thread with the FML client log (NOT the short one that Minecraft gives you) and I will investigate. If it turns out that the problem is a Forestry/Thaumcraft issue and you post it without taking 2 minutes to look yourself, be warned that I reserve the right to get snarky with you. There are an increasing number of people with the _same_ issue as you already in this thread that I have replied to with the same answer: "Check your configs for ID conflicts". Take the two minutes to check stuff yourself before you waste time posting here and waiting for me to waste time answering you. The more time I spend telling people to check their configs is less time I'm able to spend working on features.
Stacktrace or it didn't happen.
Also, if you ask a question about a crash that is answered in the changelog, or the last 2 pages of the thread, I reserve the right to make fun of you. Reading is important.
If you enjoy Thaumic Bees, and have extra cash you don't need for anything else, I am now accepting donations.
