I’m Still Hungry Mod for Minecraft 1.7.10

Basic content mods are anything but few and far between.  Some feel that they lack in creativity, doing little more than filling up an already cluttered selection of mods; others, myself included, feel that they provide a way to spice up gameplay in a simple but novel way.  User RoyalsMod of Planetminecraft is the creator of the I’m Still Hungry mod, which adds a variety of useful food items to Minecraft.

Primarily, what I like most about this mod is the fact that it is incorporated into the gameplay itself. Players must craft each food item from sensible recipes and may consume them for various effects (in addition to filling their hunger meter).  While there are many food mods, some of them forgo fundamentals such as these.

 

The creator intends to add many more items in the future.  For now, there are eleven new items:

These items are:

  • Caramel – the basic element for most food items in the mod thus far, made by smelting sugar.  Fills one hunger and gives the Speed II buff for five seconds.

  • Caramel cake – a simple, upgraded cake which fills one hunger and provides Speed II for seven seconds.

  • Caramel apple – fills three hunger, gives Speed II for 15 seconds.  Almost as awesome as real-life caramel apples bought at fairs during Autumn.

  • Caramel carrot – same effect as the caramel apple.  Sounds weird, but Steve seems to like it.

  • Caramel fish – 3.5 hunger and Speed III for 5 seconds.  Caramel and fish doesn’t seem to go together, though…

  • Caramel salmon – same effect as caramel fish but gives an extra 0.5 hunger.  An equally questionable cuisine choice.

  • Caramel cookie – now we’re talking!  1.5 hunger and Strength I for 5 seconds.

  • Raw potato crisp – half a hunger point.  Not very appetizing.

  • Baked potato crisp – basically a potato chip.  Gives one hunger point.

  • Roasted seeds – heals one hunger and buffs the player with Haste I for 5 seconds.

  • Roasted pumpkin seeds – one of my all time favorite snacks, especially from home-grown pumpkins on a cold Autumn day.  Same effect as roasted seeds but the buff lasts for two more seconds.

 

As you can see, caramel is the main focus of this mod in its current state.  Each item has a simple and logical recipe.

 

  • All caramelized foods are surrounded by four caramel, one in each direction.  Apples have a stick in the top right corner.

  • Cake is the same as a normal cake but with caramel in the top row.

  • Craft one caramel in the bottom right corner with a cookie to make it more awesome.

  • Raw potatoes can be crafted by themselves to yield three raw potato crisps.

  • Seeds, pumpkin seeds, and raw potato crisps can be cooked in a furnace (and most ovens added to the game by mods, providing that they are coded properly).

 

In summation – yes, this mod is repeating an already overdone category by simply adding more items to the game.  However, I am of the opinion that it simply adds another possibility for fine customization – especially by providing such a lightweight mod that does nothing but add some basic content.

 

For now, if you wish to add some mostly healthy autumnal goodness to your game, give this mod a download and enjoy this lovely only-partially-ruined-by-being-on-the-floor caramel cake:

If not – stay tuned for more updates in the future!
