So how many alvaeries with distiller drones (fast worker) do you think I need for three 36 hp boilers using the fuel produced? I say 4.

You should make a test world in creative mode and try it out.

I say three.

But I have no idea what you're talking about, never touched a bee before, don't even know if it's solid or liquid.

If you're poor for alvearies, you could try getting some frame housings going, but obviously that means you'd have to mind the alveary.

jump: The distilled bee is an extrabee that produces oily propolis, which can be squeezed into oil, processed into fuel, and burned.

I'm not sure how much you get from the propolis, but I doubt that only 4 would be enough to keep that many HP Boilers going.

Even with Alveary and fast worker, it's only 1 comb per ~30 seconds or so per alveary.

I have two with no frames powering 2 36hp boilers and making excess oil. I've actually had to take them out for awhile. I keep a full large fuel tank with a large oil tank overflow.

Heheh I meant solid or liquid fuel, but they sound cool! Good luck with that, I'd love to see the results if you happen to test it out on creative :D

Ahhh, but it takes forever for the boiler to reach max efficiency. Like at least two hours. And I don't feel like rebranding the in creative again. Plus my information might not be accurate as others.
