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.

When downloading, please make sure to go to the Files tab, and download the version for your modloader. The files have "fabric" or "forge" in their name. Curseforge doesn't always show the correct versions on the main page.

Looking for weekly versions?

Publishing a mod to CurseForge does, unfortunately, involve a lot of manual work. For this reason, starting with 21w03a, I'll only publish weekly versions on Modrinth, where publishing a version is just one button click for me. You can find weekly versions for all my mods on https://modrinth.com/mods?q=Giselbaer&s=downloads. Versions for official MC versions will still be published here.

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, beenfo-1.16-fabric0.13.1-1.1.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. For 1.16.2, use beenfo-1.16.2-fabric0.17.2-1.1.2.jar.
