More foods was born out of a need for a half decent food mod back in 1.8. When first released, players had gotten used to Pams Harvestcraft and this was not available until several months later. In the meantime a few mods popped up that tried to fill the void but none of them were any where near as complex as harvestcraft. I was streaming at the time and wanted a food mod in 1.8 so I decided to build one. I didn't want to copy the other mods out there and I knew I couldn't compete with the dozens and dozens of crops nor the even greater variety of meals that could be produced. I decided to pick a few crops to add. They needed to complement each other. I wanted to look at a different way of balancing food. I researched various options. In the end I decided to implement 3 crops. Lettuce, Tomato and onion. This would allow me to make a lot of different meals. I also decided to make a simple recipe for cheese by cooking milk, and another for salt that required cooking water.
There are plans for a brand new version to be released with 10x the crops and all 3d animated models. This is a massive undertaking and is slow going. I will continue to work on this but right now all I have are screenshots of some of the new models and features (like a wooden bucket). The next step will be to make a release with the original crops with the new 3D models and then release new crops as the models are complete. As you can see, the models look great! I can't wait to get all the new crops into more foods
