Firefly swarms always show up as one swarm, no matter how many hives there are

I noticed this looking at the housing routes and GlitchRemote, figuring it was an API bug, but it happens on loading screens too-- no matter how many hives you have on your street, it only says you have one swarm. While this is, strictly, accurate, it does make it hard to find streets where you can fill up a bunch of jars at once.

  • I list the number of hives on each street in the Barnacles & Fireflies Route discussion page.

  • This is one of the longest standing bugs in the game - it existed from when home streets were introduced, and it appears that it is caused by the string "a firefly swarm" being hard coded into the game somewhere. At this point I think this bug will only be fixed after they give us ponies.
