This release fixes item and fluid dupe bugs, update your server!
Also, backup your world in case you have an issue. This stable release has been reasonably well tested but you never know.
Due to major internal changes, worlds loaded with this release can't be downgraded back to an earlier version.
We also display multiple GUI Error Tabs on machines now (instead of one at a time) making the machines and farm easier to use, especially for people new to the mod!
Backpacks have gotten smarter with better auto-detection for the ore dictionary, and a big config file(example) that allows you to fine tune what goes into each backpack. It allows you to add or remove ore-dictionary names as well as specific items now.
For developers, there is a new API for creating bee species and mutations, simplifying addons and other mods that create bees and making it easier for them to stay up to date with Forestry changes.IBeeFactory lets you create fully customizable bee species, IBeeMutationFactory makes mutations, and the IJubilanceFactory generates Java-friendly bee happiness! Forestry uses this new API to create its bees, so you know you wont be missing out on any functionality.
In this update, Forestry's network code has been mostly gutted and rebuilt for efficiency. Better be^(e)haved, we only send network data to players when they really need it. This was a crazy amount of work but it should help servers with Forestry-heavy builds!
Bee performance has also been improved! Full-production ^(bee) setups of Apiaries and Alvearies should be easy for servers to handle now, with minimal effect on tick rate. Together with be^(e)tter network code, the server's Overzealous Bee Person and Broke Server Operator will get along better than ever!
Forestry particles now respect Minecraft's particle settings, so you can reduce them if needed. As be^(e)fore, you can disable them entirely in the config if your computer is really struggling.
Gui side-tabs open at same speed no matter what your frame rate is.
The Analyzer block accepts vanilla saplings now, and can display trees and butterflies in addition to bees.
Gui progress bars on the centrifuge and carpenter don't jump to 100% and back.
Fix a bug where watered farms would spread out beyond their borders.
Fix the mail icon sizes so they don't magically become small when you empty your letter.
Fix TiCon Autosmelt on Forestry ores so they don't all drop Apatite.
Bees can pollinate vanilla trees without analyzing the tree first.
Apiaries and Alvearies charmingly puff little clouds to indicate production.
As always, if you find any issues, please report them here. 🐝
