- Datapacks are a thing in Minecraft PC 1.13 or higher that enables the ability of custom advancements,functions,structures,loot tables and more without the need to install a mod of any kind. Some datapacks can be used along side mods as "addons" for the mods.
- How to install datapacks: ( Provided that your language is English (US) )
+ First, open your Minecraft game
+ Enter "Singleplayer"
+ Right-click once on the world that you wanted to install the datapack
+ There should be a row of buttons to press. Press on the "Open World Folder" button (the second one)
+ You should now be redirected to your world folder. Open the "datapacks" folder and install the datapack folder there.
+ When it is done, go back to Minecraft, and enter the world that you wanted to install the datapack.
+ The datapack should now be installed into your world. If you want to make sure that it is installed, use /datapack list. If there is more than one datapack in the list then your datapack has been installed.
- I hope that this tutorial helps you guys. If you want to, you can try installing my datapacks. I will be making more in the future. Thank you for your time.

Everyone who is confused, just select a world you want to use the datapack in, select "edit" and youll find the "open world folder" option.

I'm new to Minecraft and have followed your instructions.
When I right click on my world, nothing happens. There is an icon to the right of my world that opens up to world settings, add-ons, etc. It doesn't let me add any data packs that is not from the in game store.
Any ideas? I'll keep working at it.
