ATTENTION: This mod is NOT compatible with From Golden Combs.  If you want to take beekeeping to the next level be sure and check that mod out. It's hugely popular for good reason, and Vinter's a genuinely nice guy.


Buzzwords does one simple thing. If you're 12 or so blocks away from a wild beehive of some sort, you'll get a 'BzZzZzZ...' text alert to notify you that bees are nearby. Get even closer, and you'll get even more z's.

It's intended for the vanilla bee crowd, for when you can't hear ambient buzzing sounds for whatever reason. Maybe you've got that incredible VS soundtrack cranked up, maybe your significant other is shrieking like a howler monkey. idk.

I shored up the logic some more and did some additional testing.  Hopefully the problem that Dij encountered will no longer be a problem.

Dij thanks for the kind words and for reporting the issue.  I've added your report to my to-do list and will hopefully have it sorted out soon.

My pleasure - My story is slightly different - I play VS in a shared space, so I have to keep the audio relatively low.  Got tired of never finding bees.

💬 Verlia, Jul 19th at 10:28 AM

SF, thank you for this <3 I'm hard of hearing and I hardly ever find them because of this. Helps so much <3

💬 SpearAndFang, Jul 15th at 2:23 PM

FYI: I tested this mod with v1.17.0-pre.4 - still working.  Use v1.1.0 for v1.17.0-pre.5

💬 SpearAndFang, Jun 30th at 4:07 AM

I tested this mod with v1.17.0-pre.1 and it seemed to work aok.
