Simple mod that adds 2 extra slots for consuming food with the click of a key.
2 slots that you can use to quickly consume food/potions
Automatic food consumption (disabled by default, can be enabled through the config file)
Craftable stackable health potions (normal and greater)
By default the two keys are G and H, but they can be configured. To swap items in your current primary hand with the slot, press shift + the key of the slot. To consume the item in the slot, simply press the key of the slot.
Vanilla health potions can be added to the slot, but because they cannot be stacked, are not optimal. This mod solves that issue by introducing a normal healing potion and a greater healing potion. To create the normal healing potion, combine two gold nuggets and an Instant Health Potion I in a filled cauldron and right click with a stick. To create the greater healing potion, do the same process as before but with two gold ingots and Instant Health Potion II. The heal 2 and 4 hearts respectively.
Mod-added items should be compatible if they abide by the ItemFood or ItemPotion classes set by vanilla Minecraft.
Potions spawn as loot in chests
Configuration to change recipe for potions
Configuration to change availability of consumption slots (get to nether to unlock first, end to get second)
Potion sickness on custom potions to avoid spamming of potions
