Thank you all for the 1000 downloads ! It's amazing !

Who has never wanted to own a beehive in their garden in Eco?

To all bee lovers, discover this new possibility thanks to the beekeeping mod.

The beekeeping mod offers brand new gameplay mechanics. Explore the land to discover swarms, learn the job of beekeeper and start breeding bees to bring new useful ingredients for your server.
(This mod adds a new profession, beekeeper's workbenches, cosmetics, a dozen recipes and waxed wooden furniture).

Recipes added on the sawmill, the cast iron stove, the oven, the kitchen and the stove.

Here's how the mod works, step by step :

1. When you launch your server with the mod, between 50 and 60 occupied swarms will be generated. The beekeeper has to explore the map* to find them in order to get a queen bee**.

If all the swarms have been taken by a random guy or if several people want to do the profession, use the command /GenerateSwarm to respawn new swarms.

2. Once you have queens, you can craft breeding hives, they will only work with a queen bee.

3. You can make full pots that can be transformed into wax or honey and be used in new recipes.

*Occupied swarms are like Ecko status, they have a property that prevents you from seeing their position, you won't find them in the list of shops either.

**With royal jelly you can obtain new queens by using it in vacant swarms.

I uploaded the .zip file to the /Mods directly and saw the game apparently load it on startup. But I'm not seeing any changes within the game. Does the mod only work for new world creations or am I doing something wrong? Thx

You have to unpack your .zip file in the mod folder to get a .cs and a .unity file

Thank you. I read on another site that all you have to do is upload the .zip file to the mod directory. Obviously that's not true. I was able to get the Mod browser to populate and download it from there. Thanks!

Can someone please update this mod I would love to add this mod to my server

I don't really understand. 1.1.0 means the version of my mod, there is no link with the version of Eco. At the top of the description, it says that the mod is compatible with Eco version 9.2, so the current one. Before posting this comment, did you test this mod on a test server ?

Ondulas
Ondulas @ondulas

but this mod is already updated...

few lil things. number one the farming basic upgrade doesnt effect extractors and t3 or advanced queen bees dont effect time % or effeciency of hives. and there isnt anyway really to upgrade or breed more bees yet. can you please add this in.
thanks :)

Hi there, so the people of my server are very active beekeepers and we're now at the point that there are no wild bees around, but new players want to become beekepers.

Is there an option to regenerate swarms on the map?

Ondulas
Ondulas @ondulas

Hi,
If all the swarms have been taken by a random guy or if several people want to do the profession, use the command /GenerateSwarm to respawn new swarms.

Waxed Bed is considered General Furniture, not Bedroom. It has thrown off my entire Bedroom. I am going to have to revert to the Regular Wooden Fabric Bend again.

Yes I know, it's an error that has been fixed in version 1.1.0

I can't figure out how to meet the requirements. Can someone attach a diagram of their layout - where to put hives and where to put the "tables"

Ondulas
Ondulas @ondulas

The hives must have enough plants around them, have a module called "queen bee" and not be placed next to another hive. For the tables, they work like the standard Eco table
