A number of years ago, Minecraft started out with a couple of basic animals like sheep and pigs. As development progressed, marine life was added to the game, bamboo-chomping pandas showed up and even red foxes appeared.
Now, in the latest update (following on from the update for the PS4 version earlier this week), Mojang has added "buzzy" bees. You can discover how bees breathe life into their surroundings, bringing speedier crop growth, "homey" hives, and sticky honey. Here's some additional information about the update:
There are baby bees, honey blocks, bee hives/nests, and Steve’s new catchphrase “block you later!” that you’ll be pleased to hear we’ve already patched out.
This flying machine was made by KiemPlanetG, who is at the forefront of this sticky new industrial revolution. “We can essentially bypass the push limit of pistons by alternating between slime blocks and honey blocks, because now we are able to divide the load between multiple pistons,” they explain.
Will you bee checking out this update? Comment down below.
Bees added to Minecraft this close to the game awards huh..........Seems like we'll have a very "Stickey" Smash reveal tomorrow -_-
Hope they made it where it will load the game instead of nothing and software not working error
Been so excited for this!! I restarted my realm for my friends and I so we can all play together. The bees are such a wonderful addition but the bugs make it hard to enjoy it Minecraft has always been awesome and it just keeps getting better. Can’t wait for the nether update!!
Block you later!
insert Bee Movie joke here
According to all known laws of aviation, there is no way a bee should be able to fly. It's wings are too small to get it's fat little body off the ground. The bee, of course, flies anyway because bees don't care what humans think is impossible.
"Sticky" smash reveal?...ELMERS GLUE CONFIRMED
@patbacknitro18 I'm starting to hope that this isn't the case. I know the game did this, that, the other, sold however much, is encouraging cross play, yada yada. But the absolute cancers associated with it just don't need to be part of Smash's wheelhouse.
Does this mean I can walk into my Minecraft house and shout "Hi Honey, I'm home!" now?
@Dazzle apart from it still selling loads, still being played by millions around the world on many platforms and still being really popular?
You need to separate what 'you' like with what everyone else does, otherwise you just come off as very egotistical.
@KingBowser86 you can not deny my bees their time in the spotlight in Smash -_- .........but nah, Steves never getting in. The leakers who said he was are complete hacks. They have yet to get a single DLC character right in Smash, yet people still hang on their every word as if it some golden law. They were so insistent that Steve would get in over Banjo, yet got easily disproven at E3. And despite this, people still believe chumps like Sabi and Vergebene
Meanwhile Dwarf Fortress updates add entire kingdoms scheming against one another, or bards traveling from one fortress to another, or entire histories of deities.
But yeah, bees are awesome! Such a wonderful and meaningful addition.
You'd think that such a huge property would warrant them adding in more stuff and more often, but whatever. My kids still enjoy it immensely, and I must admit I enjoy it too from time to time.
Not the bees! NOT THE BEES!
@KingBowser86 Hol on, define "cancer" that you're talking about
@STEVEXSTEVE You know darn well what I'm talking about, judging by the All-Caps username and profile pic.
@KingBowser86 Such details would only make me more oblivious to it. But still, actually want to know unless it's the "ooga booga Minecraft bad" reason
@STEVEXSTEVE "Lore and theory" videos, cringey merchandise, a good swath of fanbase that is unhealthily-obsessed, somehow less imaginative (i.e. copying previous content) fan creations (albeit by a slim margin) than Super Mario Maker 2 despite having a wider variety of generic objects on hand, etc.
@KingBowser86 Oh, for a second I thought it might be for consequential and meaningful reasons, but "cancer" is just defined as "I don't see the appeal in this, therefore it must be bad".
I come to that conclusion due to unspecified reasons on why "Lore and theory" videos are actually bad. "Cringey merchandise"??? You mean merchandise no one forces you to buy? And since when was merchandise taken into serious consideration when evaluating a game and it's attributes? Let alone how it's merch in particular can be all that cringy.
An "unhealthily obsessed fanbase" is also lost on me. Are there degrees on which a community should enjoy a game? Are people killing themselves watching too many Minecraft lets-plays? Or does it's massive community engagement after so long faze you?
"Less imaginative", despite Minecraft literally being a platform for creativity with so many ways it can be played and so many genres of the game on Youtube (i.e. survival let's plays, speed builds, competitive pvp, fan animations, ect.)
@KingBowser86 That aside, what would Minecraft content in smash even take away from the game?
@STEVEXSTEVE All of your arguments are Red Herrings. Impressive.
The amount of "lore and theory" videos are ultimately meaningless in the face of and excusing the nebulous and paper-thin actual lore, cringey merchandise such as no-effort and no-quality but overpriced jokebooks, plushes, etc., unhealthily-obsessed in that we're seeing specific users cause actual detriment to their habits and not exercising their own individuality and creativity but rather creating massive construction projects that essentially advertise another existing franchise (emphasis on the unhealthy amount of effort), and less imaginative in that the most prized and covered creations within the community are, again, those that copy existing major media pieces and comparatively-rarely ever the original creations.
It is not a "taking away," as much as it is representing and affirming a series that needs some experience and depth of quality before showing up in Smash. Don't feel too bad; games like Death Stranding, Hollow Knight, Ori, and Shovel Knight are in the same boat.
FINALLY!!!! I CAN NOW RECREATE THE BEE MOVIE IN MINECRAFT!!!!!!!
Can we please get these graphics ingame? Where is the Super Duper update? I know there are shaders but nothing official like in this trailer...
