I’m loving the new update, the bees are so cool. I’ve already scouted them out in my existing realm, 10k blocks from home haha.
Honey blocks will be great fun for my redstone builds (though I’d love to be able to cook with honey), but I was disappointed to find that honeycomb is mostly useless (with the notable exception of building more hives). Why not give us some things to craft with it?
The first thing that comes to mind is candles! It would be a great light source to give some more diversity to interior design. A simple crafting recipe of one honeycomb and one string should suffice to make a beeswax candle.
Such an item could be a simple as a reskin of a torch and I’d be happy. Or of course, if you wanted to be more creative, candles could burn out over time (could use mechanics similar to furnaces and brewing stands for calculating burn time before being used up). They could also potentially be “put out” by water or a tool and “relit” with a flint and steel, like campfires. I think it would be a great addition and really flesh out the usefulness of the update.
(I can think of other potential use for wax as well—maybe waterproof redstone?—but that’s for another time.)
The Meaning of Life, the Universe, and Everything.
I really like the idea of Candles to expand upon our range of light sources in the game. The addition of an item like Beeswax as a byproduct of Bee Nests and Hives could also open up several more possibilities.

Hey guys I'm James, I used to be a noob but now I'm not, I finally figured out how to use TextCraft so here's a banner for one of my suggestions.
Its not that the forum is obsolete, they just have their own place for suggestions, the forum is a good place to start off as a sounding board to get feedback from others so you can tweak your idea so its a better one for when putting it on the feedback site
