Improved Food Descriptions

In 1 collection by Neo
Storage, interface and farming improvements
10 items
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 h:m:s (updates every 10 seconds)
  • Effects from Frackin Universe are now also supported.

    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.

    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! :)

This mod can be extended with the following addon:

This mod works fine with the Extended GUI mod as well.

Mod seems to cause Perfectly Generic Items with CN More Farming (such as coffeebeans). The PGIs restore to original items when mod is removed. Here's is an excerpt from the logs: [09:33:34.194] [Error] Could not instantiate item '[coffeebeans, 1, {}]'. (LuaException) Error code 2, [string "/items/buildscripts/buildfood.lua"]:32: bad argument #1 to 'for iterator' (table expected, got nil)
stack traceback:
[C]: in ?
[C]: in for iterator 'for iterator'
[string "/items/buildscripts/buildfood.lua"]:32: in function <[string "/items/buildscripts/buildfood.lua"]:1>. Can you fix please?

Ahoi. As you are asking for additional effects to add:
Food Rot Info changes the border color of the food icons depending on the rot-time. It does so, by changing the rarity of the item.
As a positive side effect, this will sort the food by remaining rot-time.

There should be no problems with uninstalling the mod.

I pushed a major update to version 1.9! I reworked the whole lua code and this now allowes me to add new effects easily. I also added the effects from Frackin Universe which means there is no longer a need for the FU addon mod. Additionally I improved the the descriptions a bit, in which buffs now show in green and debuffs in red.

Both client and server

Is this Server-Side or Client?
If I play with some friends, all us need to use that or can be only one?
Neo  [author] Jul 17 @ 1:35pm 
Some things should work client side but for all features you have to install this mod on the server as well.
