We’re buzzing with excitement!

Can someone tell Cory to stop making bee puns now?

Bees are cute, fuzzy, neutral mobs
Don’t hurt them, they don’t want to hurt you
If a bee does sting you, it will leave its stinger in you and eventually die, dropping nothing :(
Bees love pretty flowers and spend their lives gathering pollen from them
After gathering pollen, bees fly back to their home nest
Bees help you by growing crops while carrying pollen back to the nest
Bees can be bred using flowers
Bees like sharing the location of their favorite flowers with other bees
If a bee can't find nectar, after a while it will return home for a bit
If a bee doesn’t have a home nest, it will wander around until it finds one it can use
Bees don’t like the rain and they sleep at night. They will go back to the nest in these cases

Bee Nests / Bee Hives

In real life, bees dance in their nests to show other bees where flowers are!

Bee Nests spawn naturally in Flower Forests, Plains, and Sunflower Plains biomes
When a bee visits this block and completes its journey undisturbed, the level of honey increases
Max of 5 levels of honey
Level 5 is quite…sticky
Bees use nests and hives to share flower locations with other bees
Sometimes bees that already know about a flower will choose not to use this information
Bee Hives are crafted by players using honeycomb and wood planks
Use a silk touch tool to get the block with the bees stored inside
Bee Nests will be destroyed unless you use silk touch
Use shears when at full honey to get honeycomb
Use a bottle when at full honey to get a honey bottle
Campfire smoke calms bees - place one underneath the nest / hive to keep them in chill mode
Bees like Bee Nests and Bee Hives the same amount! They don’t play favorites :)
Added the Honey Bottle!

Honey Bottle

Organic, gluten-free, delicious locally-farmed honey!

Use an empty glass bottle on a hive or nest that is full of honey to get a bottle of honey!
Drink it!
Oh yeah, also craft it into sugar!
Added Honeycomb!


Disclaimer: Cannot be used to comb your hair

Shear a full-honey hive or nest to obtain
Craft with wood planks to create a Bee Hive


Dispensers can now fill bottles with water and honey
Dispensers can now shear honey combs from Bee Nests and Hives

New loot table function

Copies state properties from dropped block to BlockStateTag in dropped item

block - source of properties (block id)
properties - list of property names. All must be present on block
