This is a simple data pack that changes most of the loot tables in the game to make them more realistic and logical (e.g. some mobs like cows will drop a bone or two, a lot more animals will drop meat, cave spiders will drop better stuff than regular spiders because they're harder to kill and so on).

  • Sift though gravel, sand, red_sand and soul_sand with a bowl to find nuggets.
  • cobwebs sometimes have the loot from a spiders prey in them
  • more silk touch: redstone_lamp, cake, bamboo, repeaters, comparators, campfires, composers, infested blocks, cauldrons, chorus_plant and farmland
  • auto smelt with the fire_aspect enchantment (you can get fire aspect on any diamond tool by giving the tool to a magma cube and then killing it to get it back. this will remove any pre-existing enchantments on the tool so be careful)
  • more block loot
  • faster wolfs and spiders
  • less destructive dragon and wither
  • sponge in coral biome
  • spawner and cobweb loot
  • heart of the sea now drops from the elder guardian
  • better jungle temple loot
  • biome specific fishing (probably needs improvement)
  • more meat
  • mob loot table overhaul

Fell free to use how you like though some credit would be nice.

I was a confused by how to obtain fire aspect on tools in survival. Through commands, i got the auto smelting function to work. I have tried throwing my items at the mob as well as right clicking them with the items but nothing has worked yet. Is the function with the magma cubes fully implemented yet or am i just going about it wrong? I am playing in 1.15.2. Love the datapack btw! <3

You fixed a lot in your most recent update (like cobblestone turning into gravel) but now animals aren't dropping items except like 1 out of 20 times. its too rare now

Also, I did the math and its a 33% chance of a drop in general. Meaning to get one piece of pork, you have a 17% chance and no more. The drop is maxed to one drop. Same thing for bones and leather. And to get them all in one drop, it's a 0.05% chance. In my opinion, it should be changed to like 3 pieces of pork, 1 leather and 2 bones on an average roll. I had to just delete all animals to be able to get any meat. Otherwise, it is a great pack.

Alright, I just programmed it to drop 1-4 random meat on cows and pigs, 1-3 leather and 1-2 bones and it seems a lot more realistic. Mainly just raised the chance numbers and made them more random.

Hmm, tbh I'm not sure what cobble > gravel is, though if it's not good, it might be something I accidentally left in. I've been meaning to update this pack because the biome specific loot doesn't work at the moment, so there will probably be a update soonish.
