"Used to indentify bee traits."

Microscopes allow the player to view the specific Traits of a specific bee, along with a few properties not normally shown in the standard bee trait tooltips.

General Info

The Microscope is a special machine that takes a bee as an "input" and then shows the Traits for that bee, both dominant and recessive. It also shows the "HD" bee anatomy sprite in the right-hand side. After 3 bees of a specific species are put in the Microscope the player will be able to view an overview of traits for any bee of that species in the tooltips.

Unlike the standard bee trait tooltips the microscope will show the actual "written" form of the traits when highlighted, (i.e. saying "Lifespan: Normal, Short" instead of just showing the numbers). Also unlike the bee trait tooltips the Microscope will also show Grumpiness and whether the bee is a descendent of Beeatrice

Here you can see a bee with some dominant and recessive traits, the dominant and recessive species shorthand (CC), and the Beeatrice descendent symbol by the mouse in the corner.

  • Originally the microscope was smaller, without the right-hand side panel, and did not show Grumpiness or the Beeatrice trait.
