So, I've been creating/messing with datapacks for a few months now, and I have enough experience with them to tell you how to make a good datapack. Before we get into the tutorial, if you are new to datapacks, go to This Gamepedia Article. I wanted to make this because I've seen datapacks that could do better. To be fair, they're very new in 1.13, but these will still be problems for datapack creators regardless. Now, lets get into it!

If you see and find a terrible Datapack someone made, instead of flaming them, send them the link to this post so that they can make future datapacks better. Thats all to making a good datapack. Hope to see some better datapacks later! Bye :D

I couldn't agree more with your comment regarding the "abuse" of combining texture packs and resource packs. It's not really abusing, and still a fun trick, but still cheating nonetheless. The reason I don't like it is because I've seen players getting confused over it and as a result getting a completely wrong idea about what a datapack actually is and does.

Nice article!
