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 showing:
  • 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! :)

This mod can be extended with the following addon:

This mod works fine with the Extended GUI mod as well.
This mod is compatible with Frackin Universe but its items are not improved with the new tooltips.

Mod can (probably) cause game to stall when initializing lots of food items

oh ok sorry

How could I know that?
I don't know any mods out there nor your active mod list.
Remember, Improved Food Descriptions can only handle vanilla effects and effects from mods that using vanilla effects as base. If any mod adding completely new effects I cannot know the mod where the effect is coming from.

oh ok so what the name of mod?
Neo  [author] Jun 28 @ 7:08am 
Unknown means that the effect comes with another mod which is not defined in Improved Food Descriptions.

I meant how do i discover what food effect is good or bad, because now it doesn’t says the what the effect is instead it says “unknown”.

If you cant see it, another mod may overwrites this one.

Hey do I “discover” the food effect?
Lieri Jun 2 @ 9:19pm 
Nothing wrong with the decision. If anything, glad that it'll still work on base contents along with FU anyway. I guess we'll just have to figure out the effects as we go now or have someone work on the wiki and such.

Thank you for all the work performed.

Sayter already said that he will not do anything.
