Possible bees glitch

Recommended Posts

I am playing on a multiplayer server. I have a garden set up with veggies. I also have a populated skep placed in the garden. I also have placed a dozen or so flowers to support the bees growth. It has since repopulated twice. I have several more skeps placed awaiting population, thinking that I would just rotate and replace skeps as I used them up collecting honey/wax. The normal wait time until the bees have swarmed is two days, but for some reason the new wait time after the third skep populated is now 2000 days. Is this a glitch or is this designed to it that way? I tried looking this up but coud not find anything that relates to this question.

Similar problem here. A friend is running a server for me and my patrons and I found bees, placed the flowers and a skep, and it says the time to swarm is over 400 days. Is this a bug? If so, it would be great to get a confirmation of that. If it's a setting that can be tweaked somewhere, please also let us know so we can actually get bees on the server. :P (I'm on 1.11.11) Thanks!

(Do we not have a post edit button?)

Update: the wild hive suddenly fixed itself and went back to "less than a day" then swarmed correctly. So perhaps the bug is just in the displayed time rather than the time calculation itself?

Mine solved by adding several dozen more flowers nearby and that reduced it down to two days to repopulate. Just add flowers lol.

I didn't change the number of flowers around mine, it just suddenly solved itself. I suspect there's some kind of calculation error in the code somewhere, either for the time remaining or for the display of time remaining.
