[1.0.0] bum_Fireflies!

Want a little more atmosphere and immersion to your nights in Minecraft? Fireflies will probably do the trick for you!!  They glow and flash and float about with an enigmatic aesthetic... Then daylight comes and they hide!!

This addon adds Fire Flies to the nights in Minecraft!

Fireflies will spawn in all non-frozen biomes at night and will  float about; often forming small swarms together.  When daytime comes, they'll hide somewhere shady until taking to the skies for the next night!




Fireflies can be tempted with Glowstone Dust for easy distraction and aesthetic screenshots. The coolest part, though? You can catch fireflies inside glass bottles!
Simply interact with a firefly while holding a Glass Bottle, and the firefly will be stuffed in that tiny, cramped bottle!





Then when you're ready to release it; simply use the Bottled Firefly item and *poof*. You've successfully abducted wildlife of your very own!  Fun, right?!



This addon was created by Clouddspiderr and Vex of TeamBumble and you are free to use this addon however you would likeas long as you give credit and provide a link to this mcpe dl page. This includes the freedom to make videos, use in modpacks, and modify the code for.   Just provide credit!


NOTE:  THIS ADDON REQUIRES 1.16.100+ !
Remember to turn on all three experimental toggles:



:: ADDON CONTRIBUTORS

Vex ( @Vex#3442 )

Clouddspiderr ( @clouddspiderr#8523 )

Please enjoy this addon and don’t hesitate to leave feedback! We've got a couple small improvements for this addon in mind, but we'll see what happens! What do you think?


Real-life Fireflies bring a sense of wonder and whimsy to temperate, summer nights and are increasingly threatened by extinction due to climate change - do what you can to protect them, their environment, and everything else that also calls this planet home - there is no Planet B!!


Cheers and stay safe!

This is an amazing addon! I love the way the fireflies look and I’ve been incorporating them into just about every one of my survival worlds.
I would like to suggest you making a butterfly mod similar to this one? I’ve been looking all over for a working butterflies addon but I’ve found none, if you’re interested it’d be cool bringing in butterflies along side your fireflies, thanks for reading my suggestion!

I'll whip up a quick butterfly model with some variants, and see if Cloudd would like to add it into Bum_Fauna. :)

very nice but when catching a firefly the mob disappears, it uses up the bottle and gives me nothing. also I would like that they could give light like the worms of the mod "Cave Update".
PD: Text translated with google

This happens when you do not set the experimental toggles.

Make sure you turn on the experimental mode toggles for this addon to work properly.

Can you update bum crops?

bum_Crops and bum_Flora both have updates in the works, but we have a couple more pressing new content stuff under works, before moving onto updates for older content.

Bare with us! It's pretty much just Vex and I making these addons and we do it for free as a hobby in our spare time, so it takes a little bit of time. (:

Hello, I was wondering if I could use your pack on a map I have made. I originally used this pack in the making of the map so it kind of needs this pack in order for the world to look correct. I will give full credit and I will link this exact page in the description of the world. Thank you and have a great day.

(Also this pack is freaking awesome!!!)

This is still one of my most favorite addons! It kinda makes me want to make a cicada add-on for a nice ambience.

To slip ya a little secret, we're currently working on a Bum_Insects pack and cicadas may find their way into it..
