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

Have issues with this mod. After installing, there're no descriptions, and all my red apples from my fridge are gone. Perhaps it's incompatible with the mod "No Rotting Food".

Generally the mod's safe to use on preexisting save, from experience. It will NOT work with Frackin mod suite due to how their stuff was shuffled around.

Will it corrupt the save file or is it absolutely safe?

You can ask Chucklefish if they fix their typo.
Erk Nov 19, 2018 @ 12:52pm typo on cooked chicken, please fix it! fix it ! fix it! fix it!

Correct. Little further below is the decision made regarding FU because of the rework that FU did and it being unduly time consuming for Neo to fix.

I suppose it isn't compatible with FU anymore. Seem to work, but does nothing for FU custom effects.

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.
