How to install

You can select an installation guide for the Minecraft version that you want to play in. Other Minecraft versions than those listed here are not supported.

Installation Guide
(Java 1.16)

The process may be different for my other data packs.

  1. Download the data pack, and you'll get a zip file in your Downloads folder.
  2. Unpack the zip file. If you don't know how, click here.
    • On Windows 10, right-click the zip file and click "Extract all".
    • On MacOS, double-click the file in your Finder, and it creates a folder with the name of the zip file. Open the folder, and inside, you will find another folder, which is the one that you want!
    • On Linux, you need to install unzip first by entering sudo apt install unzip in ther terminal. After that you can unzip the file using the terminal by typing unzip filename.zip!
    • If none of the above works, you can try it using the programs WinRar or 7Zip.
  3. Now you have a folder, which is the data pack.
  4. After you've unpacked the zip file, the contents may have been wrapped in another folder! Open the folder and if there's only a single folder inside, that folder inside is the actual data pack! Move that single folder outside, and use it instead!
  5. Singleplayer: Open your Minecraft saves folder. If you don't know how, read one of the following quick guides:
    Windows, MacOS, Linux
    1. On Windows, you can do so by pressing (Windows key) + R at the same time.
    2. A window will open, and you need to enter %appdata% in the text field.
    3. The Windows explorer will open, so click on the .minecraft folder.
    4. Inside, open the saves folder, which contains all your worlds.
    1. On MacOS, you need to open Spotlight first. Either do that by pressing Command + Space, or by clicking on the magnifying glass icon in the right of the menu bar.
    2. Now type in ~/Library/Application Support/minecraft and press Enter.
    3. Now, the Minecraft folder minecraft is opened.
    4. Inside, open the saves folder, which contains all your worlds.
    5. Should you experience problems finding certain files or folders, they may be hidden. Press Command + Shift + . to toggle the hidden status of files.
    1. On Linux, you need to navigate to the ~/.minecraft directory.
    2. Inside, open the saves folder, which contains all your worlds.
    3. Should you experience problems finding certain files or folders, they may be hidden. Press CTRL + H to toggle the hidden status of files.
  6. Multiplayer: Access the world folder on your server.
  7. Open the world folder. Inside the world folder, double-click the datapacks folder.
    • If there is no datapacks folder, you can create it yourself.
  8. Drag the data pack into the datapacks folder.
  9. Open the world in Minecraft, and the data pack will be running.

Fixes

If the data pack doesn't work as intended, doing one of the following things may fix the problem.

  1. Check that you're using the right Minecraft version (1.16) and edition (Java).
  2. Singleplayer: If you have any mods installed, there might be complications. Run the data pack without them.
  3. Multiplayer: Give yourself operator rights.
    • On default servers, you can do so using the command: /op YourName
  4. Multiplayer: This data pack may not work on Bukkit (or other modded) servers.

I updated my planet generator and castle generator to 1.16!
Sadly, they now take 3 times as long to generate the structures, because 1.16 seems to lag horribly when a lot of blocks are placed quickly. But hey, they work 😄 Image

Report

If you experience any problems with this data pack, one of the options below may help you. Should none of those options address your problem, you may want to report a bug.

There may be multiple reasons if the data pack appears to do nothing.

  • Make sure that you properly followed the installation guide.
  • You may use the data pack in the wrong Minecraft version or edition. Make sure that you are using it in Minecraft version 1.16-1.12!
  • Some "Unzipping" programs may wrap the unzipped folder in another folder. Open the folder and if there is only a single folder inside, that folder inside is the actual data pack! Move that single folder outside, and use it instead!

There may be multiple reasons if the data pack only works partially.

  • Check that you properly followed the installation guide.
  • You may use the data pack in the wrong Minecraft version or edition. Make sure that you are using Minecraft version 1.16-1.12!
  • Multiplayer: You are using the data pack on a modded Minecraft server like Spigot or Bukkit, which may break parts of the data pack.
