A mod that encourages dietary variety through diminishing returns.

Makes it so that eating the same thing over and over will give you fewer and fewer hunger restored each time. Everything in this mod is entirely configurable (server-side), including the formula used to calculate the diminishing returns (see Configuration section below). Compatible with Hunger Overhaul.

The following only applies to the 1.6.4/1.7.2 versions, in 1.7.10, these features were moved to AppleCore:
Also adds useful client-side information in the form of tooltips that show the hunger/saturation of food (when holding Shift) and an overlay on the HUD that shows both your current saturation value and how much hunger/saturation you'd gain from eating any food that you are holding. If the mod is not installed on the server, then dimishining returns will be disabled automatically. Server-side (or in a single player world), the 'food.modifier.enabled' config setting can be set to false to disable the diminishing returns part of the mod.

Note: This mod is mostly intended to be used with other mods that add more food to the game.

Want the mod to behave differently than is currently possible? Let me know and I'll probably make it a configuration option
