Heart Canister

Name Heart Canister
Type Item
Stackable Yes (10)
Source Mod Tinkers' Construct

The Heart Canister is an item added by Tinkers' Construct, which increases the amount of hearts that the player has. To have an effect the canisters must be equipped in the Armor Tab, in the bottom slot on the far right, with the symbol that looks like the heart canister. Up to 10 can be stacked in this slot to allow for a total of 20 hearts (or 40 health points). These will not appear above the regular health bar like from the Absorption effect, instead once the health bar is full the red hearts will gradually be replaced by orange hearts.

On top of the red heart canisters, a maximum of 10 yellow heart canisters and 10 green heart canisters can be equipped for an additional 20 and 20 health points. This brings maximum health up to 40 hearts (or 80 health points).

When initially equipped the canisters will only increase the potential health, meaning that the extra health still has to be regenerated, for example with a full hunger meter or potions.

The Green Heart Canister can not be crafted, but the presence of a Miniature Green Heart suggests future implementation. The Miniature Green heart can not (yet) be obtained in survival.
