Improved Food Descriptions 2.0

Food descriptions now showing the amount of food and remaining rot time in minutes.

  1. NeoVanAlemania


    This mod improves the interface of food and medicine descriptions and make it possible to show additional information. It needs to be installed on both server and client.

    The new designed tooltips now show:
    • Amount of food (the player's max food amount is 70)
    • Status effects (buffs in green, debuffs in red)
    • Remaining spoil time in hh:mm:ss (updates every 10 seconds)

      Info: Adding new effects from mods can now be implemented easily. If you want the support for effects from other mods just let me know it or just make your own json-patch for your mod.
      Exception: Frackin Universe, Frackin Races (were part of this mod but have been removed afterwards)

      The basic idea to add new effects with this method came from 'thegamemaster1234' who created an addon mod for Improved Food Descriptions. Thanks for this! :)

    For this mod is an optional addon available! It changes the properties of food as follows:

    • Food will never spoil
    • Food can now be stacked up to 1000

    Inside the downloaded archive there are two pak files. You can use both files if you want the addon mod, if you don't want the addon just do not use the [Addon] pak file.




    Simply copy the extracted ImprovedFoodDescriptions_v1.3.pak file to your ..\Starbound\mods\ folder.
    The path should looks like this: ..\Steam\steamapps\common\Starbound\mods\ImprovedFoodDescriptions_v1.3.pak.

    If you want to use the addon just copy both pak files from the extracted archive.

    This mod brings important food information. I just wanted the "addon" to have only the "Food will never spoil" function and did not increase the stack to 1000! I do not like the stack that big, it could be 10, 25. Good luck!

      This mod does exactly what is written in the mod description, right?
      I guess thats what you wrote is more a suggestion, not a review to the functionality.

    Why isn't this part of vanilla Starbound?!
    We get to see how much damage a weapon can do, but we can't see whether or not a soda will give us Swim Boost or Bonus Energy?!

    Luckily, this AMAZING mod fixes that problem.

    But seriously, would it have killed Chucklefish to maybe put like a "gives energy regen boost or something idk" in the description of an item?
