I would love for a Hunger mod to be put in place as a optional survival challenge in the option menu.
For example, it might look like a Ham slice bar (like the health bar) and sits above the health bar and deplenishes over time, and eating Ham , bread , apples etc would put it back up along with your health.
I think it would add to the survival aspect of the game.
But no worries! I'm glad to see another person who would like a little more challenge and a little more survival in their survival mode!
Notch has also implicated that he has interests in implementing weather-effects on the player; staying in extreme hot or cold temperatures for too long could effect your health. Just imagine it combined seasons!
I look forward to some Lewis & Clarke caliber expeditions!

You don't need a separate bar for that - just make it so the player loses one health every nightfall and sunup - that way they have to eat to stay alive.
This method would be very useful, actually, because it means peaceful players would be exempt already.
I can see this working, but I'm sure many people will think one health is too low because you could live off of one raw pork chop a day. I don't think it needs much of an increase to be a reasonable amount of food per day, though.
i think you should have a separate bar for the hunger meter and when it drops to like 3 you should start to see stuff
like a creeper riding a pig or dogie screen (maybe you could fall to the ground once and a while too) then whean you hunger bar reaches 0 you start losing hearts every second/minute
p.s sense this is a mod there should be a a thirst bar too (and a water bottle to have a way to drink)
if someone does this to that someone!
