Latest file for v1.18.7:
Acorns v0.5.3 for VS 1.18.zip 1-click install


Adds Acorns as a food source.

Also adds a Wooden Mallet which is needed to crack the Acorn shells.

Acorns drop from Oak tree leaves and are highly nutritious. 
Acorn flour is gluten-free. It must be mixed with another flour and water to make bread dough.
It gives a 50% nutrition boost to bread.

Acorns can also be fed to pigs.

At some point I'll add Acorn Griddle Cakes, too. These could be made without adding another flour.

"There is no food that means more to me than the acorn, for the acorn fulfills both a promise and a fantasy: that the forest will provide for me. When I gaze across the [valley] I see more than scenery. I see thousands of acres of bounty, millions of pounds of delicious food dropped from the crowns of countless trees, waiting to be gathered by eager hands. I see more food than I could ever eat—more than I can even fathom. A wilderness and an orchard in one."
...from "Nature’s Garden: A Guide to Identifying, Harvesting, and Preparing Edible Wild Plants" by Samuel Thayer.

💬 porkbrick, Mar 3rd at 1:20 AM

i love this! acorns are such an important food wherever they are found world wide. what do you think about making them seasonal? i have no clue how that would be implemented, but fruit trees are already like that? it would be fun if the acorns dropped to the ground in fall and had to be collected that way. great job on this as is, like i said ive no clue howmodding works and if seasonal harvest (a la fruit trees) is even doable. cheers

💬 CKitt, Feb 8th at 11:03 PM

I also hope to see a 1.19 update, if required.

💬 GmanAmatin, Feb 1st at 8:53 PM

hope we see a 1.19 update. i only just found this mod but if it dont work for animal troughts then it's gonna be a problem.

💬 l33tmaan, Jan 24th at 2:56 AM

Acorns seems to run in 1.19 so far, but I haven't tried anything with it yet. There are some updates with how animals eat from troughs, so that probably doesn't work anymore.

💬 ozBilloAuthor, Jan 24th at 2:00 AM

MrSprinkleTitz
I haven't had a chance to try 1.19 yet, so I'm not sure.

l33tmaan
Have you tried Acorns in 1.19?

💬 MrSprinkleTitz, Jan 21st at 3:14 AM

This should be fine to run in 1.19 correct? Thanks for making the mod!

 

💬 ozBilloAuthor, Nov 10th 2023 at 4:16 AM

You didn't need to do that because I didn't reupload your file.
I just looked at yours to see what I was doing wrong.
If you look at the json code you'll see that the files are different.
I was crediting you for pointing me in the right direction 😀

💬 gndrneutralnoun, Nov 8th 2023 at 5:25 PM

Thanks for the credit for my fix! Just dropping in to officially say I don't mind you reuploading it.

💬 HoarseBard, Sep 21st 2023 at 7:55 PM

I adore simple little mods like this. Maybe I'm just biased towards acorns.

💬 l33tmaan, Aug 3rd 2023 at 4:11 AM

Thanks for keeping this mod updated! :D

💬 ozBilloAuthor, Aug 2nd 2023 at 7:24 AM

CakesTwix , Done 👍

💬 CakesTwix, Aug 1st 2023 at 7:03 PM

ozBillo, can you add ukr lang? Thanks you!

💬 ozBilloAuthor, Jul 30th 2023 at 7:42 AM

New Acorns Version 0.5.2
- add Acorn Meal to pies
- includes @gndrneutralnoun fix for drop rate in VS 1.18

I think I've implemented the drop rate fix that gndrneutralnoun did.
I've tested this new version in 1.18.7 and it seems to be working fine.
Please let me know if there are any issues.

💬 Fefa, Jul 29th 2023 at 6:58 PM

Expanded Foods was updated today and it claims it is compatible with this mod, i think they fixed so this mod works as intended. Will download it and test it

💬 Moon_Dew, Jul 25th 2023 at 2:13 AM

gndrneutralnoun Is your fix compatible with Expanded Foods?

💬 Kara, Jul 9th 2023 at 5:31 AM

i wonder if this will ever see 1.18 o,o

💬 gndrneutralnoun, Jun 25th 2023 at 6:06 PM

Update: I fixed it! At least when no other mods are running, acorns now drop at the proper rate! Credit to SpearAndFang for help with this; I couldn't have done it without them! They're the real MVP. Link. You don't need the original Acorns mod for this to work, BTW.

💬 gndrneutralnoun, Jun 12th 2023 at 8:05 PM

Can confirm it technically works in 1.18; however, the increased drop rate of acorns is not applied, rendering this mod rather difficult to use. I had been working on an unofficial update for this some time ago, but due to frustration with some glitches that corrupted my world, I had quit VS for a while. I'll try to remember to upload the unofficial patch here if I get around to making it.

💬 Kishmond, May 18th 2023 at 4:22 AM

Seems to work in 1.18.3. At least, the game loads and all the recipes are there.

💬 Jenpai, Apr 29th 2023 at 2:02 AM

Would love to see an update!

💬 Pamela, Mar 8th 2023 at 10:07 PM

Will this work in 1.18??  If not, when will you update?

💬 AzuliBluespots, Jan 8th 2023 at 4:09 PM

I got four acorn powder, and it says to boil it with water to make a drink. Like, how much is needed? I couldn't find any instructions on that.

💬 Heebeejeebees, Nov 21st 2022 at 7:46 PM

I'ma just gon' leave this, on the sole basis some of this information can be used to impove the wilderness survival aspect of this mod. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GoVYQwTXJOM

💬 l33tmaan, Oct 2nd 2022 at 4:08 PM

It seems to work just fine in 1.17.

💬 SteAStro88, Oct 2nd 2022 at 10:06 AM

Is there going to be any update on 1.17+?

💬 ThePionier, Apr 26th 2022 at 6:30 PM

Good evening! ozBillo
I just tried the new upload from you, unfortunately still the same. The server starts and shuts down immediately with a crash message as soon as I use this mod, which is strange that the mod works well in single player mode, just not in MP :D

Here is the crash log entry:

ThePionier

I've uploaded the version I've been using in 1.16.5 without any problems.

It only has a small texture change from the previous version which really shouldn't make any difference stability-wise.

I'm not using Expanded Food at the moment so I can't comment on compatibility.

 

💬 ThePionier, Apr 24th 2022 at 7:27 AM

ozBillo

The version doesn't seem to work anymore with 16.5, my MP server doesn't start when I have this mod active. An update would be great! Because I would like to continue using it with Expandet Food

💬 Kailin, Jan 21st 2022 at 10:19 PM

Are there any plans to update for 1.16?

💬 l33tmaan, Oct 7th 2021 at 6:26 PM

Did you check to see if these mods work in 1.15.6? JingShi

💬 JingShi, Oct 7th 2021 at 4:31 PM

Please update this mod to 1.15.6

💬 ozBilloAuthor, Jul 17th 2021 at 7:54 AM

New Acorns Version 0.5.0

- updated Russian and German translations
- remaps Acorn Bread and Acorn Dough from earlier versions

💬 ozBilloAuthor, Jul 12th 2021 at 10:30 AM

Currently, Acorn Dough doesn't bake into bread in the Clay Oven :( ... not sure why, yet.

You can, however, still cook it in a Firepit. It will be a bit charred, but edible. A bit crunchy, yet still with a hint of that Acorn nuttiness.

💬 ozBilloAuthor, Jul 11th 2021 at 11:57 AM

New Acorns Version 0.4.4

💬 ozBilloAuthor, Jul 10th 2021 at 4:22 PM

Not yet. I'll look at adding that :)

💬 Lisabet, Jul 10th 2021 at 5:59 AM

I've been curious since you updated to 1.15; do the acorn/flour mixes work for pies too? i.e acorn/sunflower

💬 ozBilloAuthor, Jul 10th 2021 at 2:43 AM

New Version 0.4.1
- fixed to allow Acorns to be added to Large Troughs in VS 1.15
