Make Minecraft more challenging by making hunger more challenging and food a necessity. Hunger Overhaul Mod is designed to be modular, and every part is configurable.
What the Mod Offers
This mod tweaks vanilla Minecraft’s hunger system to be more challenging while making some things easier. The mod rebalances food replenishment values and adds new effects to eating, such as the Well-fed effect that boosts health even if the hunger bar is not complete.
Eating food items will also take time. Lighter meals and snack items will take a second to eat, while heavy meals will take longer. It is also worth noting that with this mod installed, you will instantly die when hunger reaches zero.
