Harvesting
Harvesting missions allow players to earn HONEY, the in-game currency that can be used to strengthen their colony of Bees, play other games and activities, or converted into other cryptocurrencies.

Overview

Players select the most optimal Land(s) to Harvest, select the Bee(s) from their hive to embark on the Harvesting mission(s), and deploy their Bee(s) on the Harvesting mission(s).
Each completed Harvesting mission will yield HONEY, in the form of Nectar, which will be returned to the Hive.
The amount of Nectar collected on each Harvesting mission and the time that it will take the Bee(s) to complete the mission will be determined by a number of factors like the speed, agility, and capacity of the Bee(s), the location of the Land they are Harvesting, and the competition on the Land.
Once the mission is complete and the Bee(s) has returned to the hive, the player can return to the game to claim their Nectar, which will then be added to their hive.
After each mission, the Bee(s) will have a cooldown period in which they are recovering for their next mission. Once the cooldown period is done, the player can organize a new mission for their available Bees.

Selecting Land to Harvest

From the main gameplay screen (the player’s Hive), the player can choose to start a new Harvesting mission.
They will then be shown a map of the entire universe and prompted to select Land to Harvest. When selecting the Land to Harvest the player can scan the Universe to see the traits of each plot of Land, such as landform, Nectar reserves, Nectar production speed, distance from the hive, open conditions, entry conditions, Landowner commission rate, the total agility of all Bees present on the Land, total luck of Bees present on the Land, and any NFT Items that are currently affecting the Land.
Using this information, the player can select the Land(s) that will be best suited for their colony of Bees to yield the most Nectar in the shortest amount of time.
It is important to note that the stats shown for each Land will be a snapshot of the current conditions. However, stats like Nectar reserves, the total agility of all Bees present on the Land, and any NFT Items affecting the Land will change with every time frame, which will affect the outcome of each mission.
Since each universe will have thousands of plots of Land available for Harvesting, it may take a player hours to manually check the stats for each Land in the universe in which they would like to Harvest.
In order to make this easier for the player, they will be able to save their favorite Lands for easy recall. The number of favorited Lands a player can have will increase as they stake more HONEY.
Additionally, players can choose to use Scanner NFTs to quickly scan multiple Lands at a time. This will be particularly useful for players with several Bees that they are sending on missions at a time or players who do not want to take the time to individually search for the best Lands to Harvest.
For players who wish to Harvest several different Lands at the same time with different Bees, they will be able to select multiple Lands during the selection step.

Selecting a Bee for the Harvesting Mission

Once the Land(s) have been selected, the player will be able to see all the Bees in their hive so they can select which Bee(s) is going to Harvest at each plot of Land.
When viewing the Bees in their hive, the player will be able to see all of the stats for each Bee so they can make the best decisions. They will also be able to filter and sort by each trait in order to make the selection process easier.
If a Bee is currently at the hive but is still in their cooldown period, they will be able to see how much longer that Bee needs to cool down until they are available for a mission, but they will not be able to select that Bees for the current mission(s) they are organizing.
Once the player selects a particular Bee(s) to Harvest on a particular Land, the player will be shown the expected time it will take for that Harvesting mission. This will be based on the Bee’s speed, capacity, agility, the distance of the Land, and the current Land conditions. Of course, since the Land conditions (i.e. total agility of Bees on the Land or other players choose to use NFT Items such as poison bomb) will change over the course of the mission, the actual results will be slightly different.
The player can send a single Bee to Harvest a plot of Land or can send multiple Bees to the same Land. When sending multiple bees to the same Land, they may return at different times based on their speed, agility, capacity, and luck. Additionally, if any of the Bees going on the same mission share similar likes or dislikes this will create a multiplier for those Bees, which will decrease the time of the mission.
In other words, when sending multiple Bees to the same plot of Land at the same time, each Bee is essentially on its own mission, but they can all benefit from having Bees from their colony on the same mission if they share the same Likes or Dislikes.
Based on this information, the player can assign any available Bees to any of the selected Lands. Once the player is happy with the Lands and Bees they’ve organized together, they can confirm the mission(s). Once confirmed, the missions will begin at the next time frame.

Mission Time/Game Play

Once a Bee is deployed on a Harvesting mission, the player can track the Bee on the Universe Map to see if they are traveling to the Land, are actively Harvesting the Land, or are returning back from the Land.
If the player is sending an average Bee (speed, capacity, and agility) to a medium distance Land with average competition on the Land, the mission should take approximately four hours (one hour travel each way, plus two hours to Harvest their Nectar).
Of course, missions can be much shorter or longer depending on the speed, capacity, and agility of the Bee(s), the distance of the Land from the hive, the available Nectar and competition on the Land, the randomness/luck factor assigned to each mission, and whether or not any NFT Items are used by them or other players during the mission.
Once the Bee completes the mission, he will have an average of a two-hour cooldown period before he is ready to embark on a new mission. Bees with high recovery stats will be able to reduce this cooldown period so they can embark on new missions sooner. Additionally, players will have the ability to spend HONEY in order to immediately end the cooldown period so that Bee is immediately available for their next mission. It should be noted that the cost of doing this will be 2-3x greater than the amount of HONEY the Bee will be able to Harvest in that same time.

Claiming Nectar

Once a Bee returns to the hive from a mission, the Nectar collected, less the Land commission (and any mission fees to account for Blockchain transactions), will be available to be claimed by the player.
In order to claim the Nectar, the player must simply log into the game and click ‘Claim Nectar’, at which point some animations will take place to allow the player to manually add the Nectars to the hive or expedite the process by simply returning to the Hive home screen.
Since Player Rewards will have a locked emissions schedule, unlocked Nectar will then be available for the player to use as they wish. Locked Nectars will be added to the player’s locked Nectar balance.
