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.
Please ensure you have met the following requirements to run ThaumicBees:
These versions will not work with Forestry 22.214.171.124!
14 new bee species! Can you breed 'em all?
Added Thaumcraft aspects to some Forestry items, notably combs and bees. (Finally, something to use those extra drones for!)
Added another Swarmer inducer item - craftable via carpenter using liquid honey, Royal Jelly, Pollen and Enchanting Drops from Arcane bees. 8 times more effective than Royal Jelly alone!
Added carpenter recipe for candles using magic wax. Same patterns as with beeswax. 1.0.0-48
Support for Forestry 126.96.36.199+
Extra alles for bee mutations!
Thaumcraft aspects associated with some Forestry items!
Bugfix version to account for launcher jars located outside of expected folder. Replaced 1.0.0-34
Two bee lines create the foundation of ThaumicBees - The Supernatural and Arcane branch. It is said that only one who is both brave 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.
In addition to the new bee species, ThaumicBees adds some special resources that may help you with your Thaumaturgy. Centrifuged combs may produce magical wax that you can use to craft more Essentia bottles, or use in your cauldron for their aspects. The final 4 species of bees are only obtainable via the Thaumcraft Infusion Altar, provided you can breed a bee that unites both the arcane and supernatural aspects of Magic.
It's probable you need to have one of the many magical shards to bind an element to the bee...
If you encounter an issue while running ThaumicBees, check the crash logs to see if it is actually ThaumicBees's fault it went wrong, and not Forestry, Thaumcraft, or some other mod you have installed. (Note: If you see any "allele not found" messages in the log, that's probably my fault.) If you still figure it's ThaumicBees, post here with crashlogs and a brief description of what you were doing at the time.
I am open to adding new features to ThaumicBees, and have several items on my to-do list, including crating of TC items, a new bee housing contraption, and future bee lines with interesting and "interesting" properties.
