A forge mod for Minecraft that adds platters from which nearby creatures and players will be fed autonomously.
In practicality, a platter, when supplied with appropriate foodstuffs, will feed a player when they are nearby and hungry. Wooden platters will also feed and breed any animals that are nearby.
Right clicking will take the item from a player's hand and stack it on the platter. Shift right clicking the platter will remove the most recently added item. Platters will disable when applied a redstone signal and output a comparator signal as appropriate. Platters created without wood will only feed players.
I have attempted to make the mod configurable to the extent that it can be made more or less server friendly. By default, a platter will store 9 stacks and search in a 5 block "radius" for creatures to feed every 60 seconds.
Replace the wood planks with other wood planks, iron or gold ingots, or stone to achieve other platter variants.
This mod has been a learning experience for me, @bearsdotzone, as I attempt to wrap my head around forge mod development. As such, this mod would not have been possible without McJty's Mod Tutorials, and open source projects such as AppleSkin, Botania, Iron Chests, Railcraft, and Quark.
Particularly, under Appleskin's unlicense I used the code for network synchronization of hunger and saturation.
Does it work for modded feadable mobs too?
Yes, I've just tested this with Better Animals Plus and it works a treat.
so, i made a mod review if anyone wants to hear my two cents on the mod and see it in action. on that note, i hope you enjoy the video!
doesnt seem to work, game crashes on startup saying the block cant be found
Good catch, fixed in 1.1 processing now.
In reply to bearsdotzone:
now that it works, amazing mod. whats even cooler is that the textures of the block change depending on texture pack, so it doesnt stick out. honestly feels like it belongs in the base game
Any chance to make the auto-feed only enabled after right clicking it (and as soon as the food is gone, it auto-stops)? As in, it can easily be turned off and on or the eating only happens with a right-click. I'm just trying to find an easy food plate mod similar to Bibliocraft's plate and this is the closest I can find. If you can't do it it's okay, since what I'm asking defeats the entire purpose of the mod itself. Thanks for the mod regardless!
I know it says 1.16.X but could this have additional version options so i could make a curseforge profile with it from the curseforge mod launcher
I just added 1.16.5 as an option, hope this helps.
For some reason whenever my cows eat from this and go into breeding mode it crashes the server.
What version of Minecraft are you on and what mods are you using -or- what modpack are you playing? Do you have a crash log you can send me?
In reply to bearsdotzone:
I don't have the log anymore sorry, I had to go back to an earlier save and it deleted it, I am using a bunch of custom mods not a mod pack and it's Minecraft 1.16.4
was hoping "auto feeder" would come back.
