The Extra Bees Mod does exactly what you’d think it does. It adds in more bees to the Forestry mod. More combs is more fun, right? It also adds in a few new machines for messing with bees in three tiers. These machines include: Apiarist machines, such as the acclimatiser, which adjusts your bee’s environmental tolerance. The genetic machines, which turn bees into liquid DNA, which I think can be made into other bees (I haven’t really messed with it, so don’t quote me on that.) And the Advanced Genetic Machines, like the Isolator, which copies the genome of a bee and stores it in a serum vial for later use.
If you don’t start out hunting for bees, then you can make the machines. The Tier One (Apiarist) requires you to make an Apiarist Machine, which only acts as the core of all Tire One machines, and is used in the core for the Tier Two (Genetic Machines). It requires six bronze, a machine block, and two redstone.
Recipe for the Apiarist Machine:
The next core block up is the Genetic Machine, which acts exactly like the Apiarist’s Machine, but it’s used as the core for Tier Two machines and the Tier Three (Advanced Genetic Machines) core block. It requires six iron, an apiarist’s machine, one lapis lazuli, and one small circuit board (from forestry)
Recipe for the Genetic Machine:
And, finally, the last core block is the Advanced Genetic Machine. Its only use is to make all of the tier three machines. It requires six gold, a diamond, a medium circuit board, and a Genetic Machine.
Recipe for the Advanced Genetic Machine:
