This module adds craftable "heart canisters" that increase a player's health.

Features[edit | edit source]

Heart Canisters are a custom item, craftable using a Custom Crafter. Heart Canisters increase the number of hearts a player has with each canister in a player's inventory increasing their maximum health by 2 hearts, up to a maximum of 20 additional hearts.

Two tiers of heart canisters are craftable with five of each are required for the maximum possible health. Tier 2 heart canisters require five tier 1 canisters also in the inventory to function. Heart canisters of the same type must be in the same inventory slot to provide the proper amount of health.

The heart canister item may be placed into the world as a block, and then broken again without losing it's health giving abilities.

Technical Details[edit | edit source]

Heart Canister textures were created by Jonpot

Due to a Minecraft bug with the health boost status effect, removing or adding a canister to a stack in the player's inventory will cause their health to go back to the original 10 hearts, and they will need to regenerate the extra hearts.

It is possible to pickup the player_head item after placing and breaking it faster than the code reapplying custom data to the item. This causes the item to have no custom name, and not give any extra health. Throwing the item on the ground for a several seconds will correct this issue.
