I've found since the release of Minecraft 1.7, that my hunger bar decreases whilst I'm AFK on my private vanilla server. The wiki page shows a list of actions (e.g walking, running, jumping, etc) that will increase hunger and states that hunger shouldn't increase when not performing these actions.

I've played on three different PCs on my own vanilla server, and I have the problem on every system. Difficulty is on easy, yet I'm loosing one drumstick from my food bar every 20 seconds.

Have I stumbled on a bug, or am I missing something else?

  • Can you clarify something, is your hunger bar increasing or decreasing whilst afk? I'm assuming the bar is decreasing but just wanted to verify. – Linuxmint Dec 6 '13 at 22:47

    The bar is decreasing, which means my hunger is increasing. Sorry if that wasn't clear. – Bryan Dec 6 '13 at 22:55
  • I think hunger increases over time by a small amount – ratchet freak Dec 6 '13 at 23:39
  • I'm pretty sure your hunger bar should decrease while standing still. – LTPro Dec 6 '13 at 23:42
  • @LTPro, It never has before since I started playing in the 1.2.5 days. But even if it did, one drumstick on the hunger bar every 20 seconds is excessive. – Bryan Dec 7 '13 at 0:23

Doing a quick search through the Mojang issue tracker returns nothing about the issue you are encountering.

I would submit a bug report with a screenshot or video. Nice find.

  • I did search through the issue tracker, but similar issues are all about the hunger bar decreasing too quickly when the player was moving. So I wasn't sure if this was new to 1.7. I couldn't find anything to say it is a new feature, but equally, nothing to 100% confirm it shouldn't happen. I'll report the issue. Thanks. – Bryan Dec 7 '13 at 9:14
