I'm using MineColony to get some useful NPCs. When they first spawned, their bars overhead all said 20 hp, but now, most are down to 10 hp or less.

I don't want my workers to die. How can I get their health back up?

Just throw splash potions of instant health, that should do the trick.

Currently the only NPCs that heal in the mod are Guards, who heal themselves by eating food.

Employing guards should keep hostile mobs off your other villagers, so that they shouldn't need healing anyway!

Um, according to the wiki, guards aren't implemented yet. Is this wrong? But regardless of whether guards are here or not, it's still impossible to heal anyone else? – John the Green Feb 17 '12 at 18:42
@JohntheGreen As far as I can tell, yes. – fredley Feb 17 '12 at 19:37

I found this from one of the developers:

Regarding regen health.. I thought they healed themselves for 5 hp each night... If you always skip the night cycle though you will miss this

Considering I like to sleep a lot in the early game, this is probably my problem.

so far in 1.7.10 your villagers will heal over time at 1hp per maybe around 3 seconds
