If you think that Minecraft’s hunger system is just a plain nuisance – then get ready to survive like never before.
Originally created by username Iguana_man and now updated by Parker8283, Hunger Overhaul mod is a Minecraft modification that changes and drastically replaces Minecraft’s hunger system by making it more important and helpful at times.
This mod tweaks the hunger mechanics to make hunger more challenging. It also adds a few features to balance the mod and make certain aspect easier.
At first glance, you will see the good side of this mod: it adds a tooltip for food and features an easy harvest system for crops.
With this mod installed, you can now harvest and replant seed automatically by right clicking the crop.
Hunger will also deplete a lot slower than in vanilla…
The second part of the mod is its main feature. When hunger level reaches low level, the player will suffer a lot of side affects including slowness and mining fatigue. And when it reaches 0, the player automatically dies.
All food is also nerfed into 1/4 of its base value, and food is divided into several categories from snacks to large meals. Each category replenish different hunger values and consuming them takes quite some time (larger meals = longer eating animation)
Eating food will grant the “well fed” status that temporarily boost health regen – on the bad side, health regen is really really slow.
Food value stack size is also tweaked on how large the food is. and overall generation of food is changed to 4 times longer. This includes the growing of crops and the breeding cycle of any animals.
Hoe used is also changed dramatically.
If you are overwhelmed by the changes, don’t panic. Each feature can be disabled or enabled in the config file to let the player customize their own survival difficulty – making this mod quite amazing – and the best part? it also supports harvest craft!
