Bee Boxes are supposed to produce 1 honey per day while they are unloaded. They have not been doing that in months, however.
After some testing with a lot of help from @Hornete, it appears the issue lies in the harvestable component's timer.
The timer is supposed to countdown from 300 seconds during the day and add 1 honey when it reaches 0.
But instead of simply stopping when dusk comes, the timer resets (I'm told it's got something to do with the Harvestable():StopGrowing() function).
So in the end, the bee boxes almost never fill up, except during summer, where days are long enough that the timer manages to hit 0 before dusk.
1. Place bee boxes with flowers.
2. Go several screens away and wait.
3. c_findnext("beebox").components.harvestable:GetDebugString() should show the timer
4. Compare the timer right before dusk hits and the timer at the start of the next day.
A developer has marked this issue as fixed. This means that the issue has been addressed in the current development build and will likely be in the next update.
