This is an idea that I had sent to Alblaka (creator of the amazing IndustrialCraft) when he offered to do mods for money, but it's been months and he hasn't gotten back with me. Sssoooooo I'm going to put this out there for anyone who finds the idea interesting.

Anyway, the basic premise is that in normal Minecraft, you can't eat if your hunger bar is full. I propose the addition of a "fat bar" above the hunger bar that slowly fills as you eat when hunger bar is full. As you gain weight, your character's stomach becomes noticeably larger (while still a cube, lol) as well as changing your abilities, such as getting slower but having a small armor bonus. And once you reach a certain size, you can't wear armor anymore, as it won't fit. There should also be new splash potions that make you gain/lose weight, which will be hilarious in multiplayer.

One idea that I want to make sure is in there is that there are both advantages and disadvantages to being fat. I'm not completely sure what they all will be, but I want it to be a useful game mechanic as well as something humorous and silly. =P

What reminded me of it today is a video by ChimneySwift11 where he was reviewing a candy mod and he wished there would be a "binge eating" mod or something. XD

Anyway, that's the basics ... I'm sure the actual mechanics will need to be fleshed out quite a bit (lol see what I did there) but this is mainly to see what kind of interest there is from mod makers, soooooooo yeah! There ya go!

I don't know how practical this mod would be, but it sure would be funny, especially on a server.

The problem would probably be that in order for your health to regenerate, you'd need to eat. If you eat, you'd get fat. Maybe one could add a second hunger bar (having a total of about 15 hearts), so that you'd still gain health points at the 10th heart, but eating beyond the 10th heart would give you more HP and perks, though it would make your "fat bar" increase.

Hope someone succeeds in making this mod.

I think That as you get fatter your health bar decreases and your Hunger goes down faster

Maybe the guy that you are trying to get to make the mod is waiting till 1.5 to make it because he/she might not want to make a mod and then 2 weeks later have to update it.

Anyway this would be a good mod!(and realistic!)

I have just started to learn how to mod Minecraft. I have wanted this mod for a long time. I have decided to take it up as my first challenge in making a Minecraft mod. I started it only about 2 hours ago, so fat I have the game call you fat when you eat any food (Just so I know where in the code the eating takes place), I know how to edit the in game model, and I have a model replacement designed to replace the standard one. I am gonna study the sheep model (with its model changing powers when sheared) to make a player model that changes based on food consumption. I will keep everyone posted on my progress. Wish me Luck Posted Image

Also. I am making the mod for 1.5.2 because I hear is it best for beginners to make a mod for 1.5.2 then convert it to 1.7.2 than it is to start off modding 1.7.2. Once complete for 1.5.2, I will, of course, convert it to 1.7.2.

Hey I have made mods before and i am going to do this, in a huge mod im working on, the only thing is, im not going to change the players size from this, it is not worth is as it will not dissallow players to fit in places, so i will just make it so your name changes to (Phat [Name])
