Display food/healing items values (hunger,health,sanity) Reign of Giants

1 Screenshot

About This File


This mod displays what food and healing items have what hunger, health, sanity values (including rotting).

It will work for items in inventory, backpack or in containers.

You can use ALT button (force inspect) or button 'Y' if you use controller to see how many days there are left until food spoils.


Just go to steam\steamapps\common\dont_starve\mods and place the folder located in the .zip archive

Once you've done that run the game and go to "Mods" menu.

Find mod "DisplayFoodValues" and enable it.

Also see the instructions in forum thread

There is a german, french and spanish translation in mod folder.

To activate it you need to:

- open mod folder;

- rename file <modmain.lua> to <modmain_English.lua>

- rename file <modmain_German.lua> / <modmain_French.lua> / <modmain_Spanish.lua> to <modmain.lua>

29.04.2014 update:

Now you can minimize the displayed text (see the last screen of mod).

If you interested, here is the instruction:

- close the game

- open mod folder;

- copy two zip archives from folder new_fonts to folder \Steam\steamapps\common\dont_starve\data\fonts with replace

- in mod folder open file modmain.lua, find line with text:


and change it to text:


- run the game

After each update of the game you'll need to replace the fonts.

Great mod, but you should've made font color red or something like that. White isn't really visible, especially during winter. (see carrots in backpack on the pic)

For some reason, when I have this mod enabled, the boat inventory gets overlapped by main inventory. I disabled the mods one at a time and found out that when this mod is disabled the glitch stops. It may also be because of incompatibilities between a few mods, but I've seen people use those mods without problems.

Mods I use: DisplayFoodValues, Combined Status, Geometric Placement, Ice Fling Range Check, SmartCrockPot, Wormhole Marks

My game is crashing every time I pick up a flower (every time I pick any type of food).

I tried many things. I have done the instructions carefully and even disabled all the other mods.
