    Recently, it looks like the CubeCraft devs decided to nerf 1.9's new regen mechanics. I don't really have an opinion on the subject, but a serious bug resulted from this change.

    When you fill your food bar in 1.9 and do not have full health, the game restores your health quickly and at the same time reduces your saturation level quickly until either your health is full or you run out of saturation. When the new regeneration mechanic was nerfed on this network, the fast regen was removed but the fast saturation reduction remained. The game now continually reduces a player's saturation trying (in vain) to fill up the health bar, leading to players being forced to eat food almost constantly when not at full health (and even with full health it appears eating is necessary more often than before).

    I would greatly appreciate it if this bug was fixed. Thanks!

    Basically the only games I play here are Egg Wars, Survival Games, and Control Point. It happens in all of them.

    Well. In EggWars and in Survival Games, you should regen normally. the regen is slower than in 1.8 but you can regen.

    Are you saying that regeneration of hearts is broken or that players have to eat too much due to poor saturation from food?

    Players are forced to eat too much as a result of poor saturation from food. It's a result of a combination of the way regen mechanics work in 1.9 and the recent slowdown of health regen on CubeCraft.

    For instance, if my health is down, I have to eat steak every 10 or 20 seconds (estimate) despite the large amount of saturation steak provides.

    Aight, this was suggested and I've been told more food in games will be added at some point

    That's not the issue. The saturation provided by the available food would be good enough if it were not for the glitch. The nerf you guys introduced recently essentially eliminates saturation as a whole. The new 1.9 regen mechanics do something like this pseudocode:
    Code:
    If the food bar is full:
            While the health bar is not full and saturation is greater than zero:
                    Reduce saturation and increase health
    
    This is always running, so if a plugin forces health to regenerate slowly, the game will keep reducing saturation and attempting to restore health. This results in the saturation level being almost instantly drained if the player does not have full health.

    Here is how regeneration is supposed to happen in 1.9:



    If you play a game on this server, you'll notice that regeneration was slowed down to the same speed as it was prior to 1.9:


    (In case you aren't familiar with LabyMod or 5zig, the top hunger bar measures saturation.)

    This change happened maybe a week or two ago.

    Thanks :p

    I can confirm that we used to get the regeneration after eating to full hunger, but now you don't get regeneration and the saturation of food is extremely low...

    It doesn't look like they've even established why this is happening yet

    But you're not a developer or staff member?
    I believe I explained it pretty thoroughly.
