Alveary Blocks[edit | edit source]

Frames[edit | edit source]

With Forestry, frames can only be used in Apiaries to improve the production rate of the bees.

Extra Bees added a block for the Alveary, so that frames are also usable there. It also added several frames with additional modifiers.

Magic Bees also added new frames, which don't tax the local aura anymore (as they did before 2.0.0).

Frames modify one or more of:

  • Production Chance
  • Mutation Chance
  • Lifetime
  • Territory

All these values are multiplicative.

Some frames have a maximum effect achievable with stacking that type of frame.

If your frames change the mutation rate to more than 1000%, the princess/queen may degenerate to a swarmer bee. The same is true if you overwork her by boosting production rate to more than 1600%. Swarmer bees are marked with a [-] behind their name and will die off at some random time in the future.
