    So, since the survival games update came out I've been having a lot of issues with food usage. The update changelog claims to have added more food, but in my eyes the amount has gone way down. However, sometimes we ( @CyanYellow @Reddog37 ) have raw food that has good usage when cooked. I have 2 suggestions.

    1. Add coal in stacks on 1-3 to the chests.

    2. Add furnaces on maps with no furnaces.

    On maps like seasons, there already is a furnace:

    - or -

    Add cobblestone and wood to the chests, and craft the furnace.

    Usually I would just use flint and steel or lava to burn animals for cooked food, maybe that could help a little.

    On the maps underwater and fantasy animals don't spawn, that was the main objective of this suggestion; for the raw food in the chests.

    Hmm, then how about adding furnace to the maps that don't have animal spawn instead of all maps that do not have furnace? I think it's more efficient that way since I don't think many player would use it.
    I guess it makes it more survival-ish, finding ways to survive, sharing food with teammates.. killing others for food, being a savage beast murdering to survive.
    Okay a little exaggerating but yeah, how bout furnace on maps that don't spawn animals?
    (also hoping that they might nerf "something strange is happening" cause that causes lot of lag sometimes)

    Seems like a good solution to me, representing fire in the real Hunger Games. It would actually make it feel more like the real HG.

    I like these suggestions mainly because, with my luck, I always get the hunger effect when I eat the raw food so this would really help XD

    All good ideas. Don't think this would be necessary, but it'll be cool if they added coal in chest.

    I think it depends from gamemode to gamemode. In basic, the food amount is just the same as before the update. Normal has more food the before. And OP has a lot of food. I had once in OP mode 13 cooked patatoes. I don't have a problem with food.

    They should add more cooked food instead of raw, I don't really want to cook my own food... (less time to pvp :p)

    Yes, the idea is to survive, but you can't really survive wthout proper food.

    Then you need to eat your raw food. Doesn't matter wich food it is, you can eat it and it restore your food bar.
    Like this. I don't have any problem with food.

    On occation (and OP mode) you got enough food, but sometime you run across the whole map and all you find is a carrot...

    You should try Flint and Steel/Lava/Fire Aspect item...
    A furnace sounds fun and all but then we also will need Coal to get added :/
    I'm neutral on this one...

    If there was a way to make all furnaces contain coal, that would be pretty cool. Chests can be really messy sometimes, so I wouldn't add any coal to them.

    Well, as you see at the name "Hunger Games" You need to survive with food. But in the movie they find raw food too, but no, they cant cook it. But, it would be nice if there was coal in the furnaces, because the most common food must be raw food then.
