    This mod adds butterflies with a full life cycle to the world of Minecraft. It
    features 16 butterfly species, mostly based on real-life butterflies but a
    couple of them are purely fantasy butterflies.

    Butterflies

    There are 16 species of butterfly in total. Each butterfly species has its own
    size, speed, rarity and lifespan. Some will be larger, some will move faster,
    some will live longer than others.


    Butterflies can be caught or released using a butterfly net. Once caught, they
    can be bottled and placed in the world as decorative objects.

    If you want to breed the butterflies in this mod, then be sure to keep your
    cats away from them!

    Eggs

    Butterflies will lay eggs in leaves if they get close to them. The eggs will
    eventually hatch into caterpillars. If a player breaks the leaves, the eggs
    will drop. Players can then replant these eggs on other leaves.

    Caterpillars

    After living on the leaves for a short time, a caterpillar will eventually
    build a chrysalis. If the caterpillars end up on any other block, they will
    instead starve to death.


    Players can pick up caterpillars and move them to other leaf blocks if they
    wish.

    Chrysalises

    Built by caterpillars, these will eventually hatch into new butterflies within
    the world. These cannot be moved by players and will be destroyed if they
    attempt to do so.

    Scrolls and Books

    Butterflies can also be pinned to a piece of paper to create a scroll where you
    can look at the butterfly in detail. Unfortunately this kills the butterfly.
    These scrolls can also be placed around your world as decoration.


    Scrolls can also be placed in a book, allowing the player to collect
    more detailed information on each butterfly species.

    Jars

    Butterflies and caterpillars can be placed into jars. These are decorative
    items that can be placed in the world. Butterflies and caterpillars placed
    this way will not die, lay eggs or create chrysalises.


    If you want to get the butterfly or caterpillar back, they can be released by
    using the bottle while not highlighting a block.

    Server Config

    There are now server config options to help manage butterfly growth. You can find them in your world folder, under /serverconfig/butterflies-server.toml.


    The available options are:


    double_egg_chance: Defines the chance a butterfly has double the eggs (default: 0.0625).

    egg_limit: Defines how many eggs each butterfly can lay (default: 1).

    max_density: Defines how many butterflies can be in a 32x32x32 region before breeding is disabled. If set to zero, this is ignored (default: 16).

    enable_lifespan: If set to TRUE butterflies will die naturally (default: true).

    What's Changed

    • Caterpillars can now be picked up and moved.
    • Caterpillars will now starve if they don't grow on leaf blocks.
    • Advancements for collecting caterpillars.
    • Caterpillars and Chrysalises will now spawn naturally.
    • Caterpillars can now be stored in jars.
    • Butterfly data is now synced between servers and clients properly.
    • Caterpillars remember how to fall.
    • Caterpillar items now get added to the inventory on the server side.
    • Butterflies now need to ‘mate’ before they can lay eggs.
    • Butterfly movement now allows more freedom.
    • Frogs will now eat butterflies.
    • Butterflies have more predators in general.
    • Butterflies now have a limited number of eggs.
    • Butterfly breeding will be disabled in areas where they are too dense.
    • Added server config options to help manage butterfly growth.
