Mod on hold warning

I haven't played Minecraft since 1.16, but I kept my mods updated because people wanted them. Unfortunately, Minecraft changed a lot of internals with 1.19.4, and updating isn't just a matter of changing a few things, it'll also mean figuring out a lot about how it works now. I currently don't have the time and energy to do this, so there won't be a 1.19.4 update in the forseeable future. Sorry for that to everybody who uses my mods.

Some mods (which don't use a gui) will still work, but everything that has a settings or configuration screen won't, so you might still see updates to some of my mods.

Mod description

Minecraft keeps honey level and bee information when you break a hive/nest, but there's no way for players to get at this information.

This mod adds both in the item tooltip

So when you're moving a nest, you can see if there's enough bees in it to start breeding at the destination, and on servers with an economy, sellers and buyers can check if the "contains 3 bees" claim is true.

Version 1.1 adds a gui to check into placed blocks as well. Right click a hive/nest to see what's inside. This requires the mod to be installed on the server and on the client.

So you can install the mod:

  • on the client only: You will get the tooltip, but won't be able to look into placed hives/nests
  • on the server only: Nothing bad will happen, but nothing good either. The server won't require the mod to be on the client, so people without the mod can still connect.
  • on client and server/in a single player environment: You'll get the tooltip and be able to look into hive/nests.

If you're running a Spigot/Paper server, you can support players with the client-side mod as well - just throw the fabric jar file into your plugins folder. Yes, the single jar is a Fabric mod and a Spigot plugin at the same time, and will work with clients with the mod, no matter if they're using Forge or Fabric.
