does the lunchbox take in diminishing returns into consideration? so if you have 2 healing 5, 1 healing 4, you eat the 5, makes it 3, it will eat the 4 next?There is a 2nd book you can craft with 4 limonite surrounding a book that explains most of the skills and what they give you(it's modpack specific).
I personally haven't approached the wiki yet, I don't want to spoil myself.
As for food I just craft a ton of all I can, salads, lots of juices(carrot, the 3 berries), a bit of meat, seed soup, tomato soup, I put everything in a chest and then use the lunchbox on it.
It selects the 6 best food and put them in the lunchbox(freeing space), then you just eat directly the lunchbox which eats the best food out of the 6.
Also I was lucky, I still haven't found diamond but while spelunking I found 5 limonite at the bottom of a water cascade, probably from a mob?
Anyway I crafted a pickaxe from it and mined all the stuff without having to find diamond.
I have not looked at a way to decrease mob spawning but assassins are good mobs, they fight other enemies for you so you want them around. I found it is best to first start mining in an enclosed mine down until you have a good set of armor like weakening armor or speed armor.Is there any way to decrease mob spawning a bit or tweak it somehow? I'll all for a bit of challenge, but this is just annoying. I have like 30 assassins in a 10 by 10 chunk area for example, and mobs spawn literally on top of you sometimes.
