|Source Mod||Extra bees|
The Mutator is a machine that can increase the chance of creating a mutation in the genetic code of one or more bees. To work, it must be part of the Alveary structure. Having multiple mutators in one Alveary does make the effect stack. As the smallest mutation chance is currently 2%, a Nether Star will always result in a successful mutation for all bees, if one is possible.
Depending on the item provided, the Mutator has a varying increase to the success rate of a mutation. Each Mutator can hold up to one stack of a single item. The Mutator will consume one item placed in it each time a Queen dies, regardless of actually being able to create mutations or not.
- Soul Sand - success rate 1.5 times higher.
- Ender Pearl - success rate 2 times higher.
- Eye of Ender - success rate 4 times higher.
- Uranium Ore - success rate is 10 times higher.
- Nether Star - success rate is 50 times higher.
