Be sure to read at least the Introduction and the How to Use & Information Section

Introduction

This is a datapack which adds an animation to doors and allows for doors placed next to each other to open together when clicked.

Watch The Showcase Video: https://youtu.be/hGOqbIl63lM
(Note the bug in the video with the particles playing when opening/closing doors has been fixed in the newest version. Just install the new resource pack [​V2])

How to Use & Information

Simply install the datapack and activate the resource pack. All doors you place will now be animated and all double doors will open together. Sweet 'n Simple.

Known Unfixable Bugs (Minecraft Limitations):
- Occasionality the door will appear to visually half close/open. This is due to a Minecraft rendering bug. It sorts itself out after around 10 seconds. If I can find a solution to this I will update the pack.

If you wish to uninstall the pack - just run /function _better_doors:uninstall and this will remove all the invisible armour stands inside each door. You can then just uninstall the resource pack and datapack and you will be back to normal.
Note that if you have the resource pack on when you run this command it may appear as though all the doors have disappeared. They haven't! Doors are just made invisible by the resource pack - when you remove the RP they will appear again.

Usage in Videos [​YouTubers Please Read]

  2. Provide credit in the description - linking to my YouTube channel and this download page.

Via some resource pack magic - you no longer will see particles when opening/closing doors!

Anyone remember the "Malisis Doors" mod from way back in the days?

(I totally love this datapack for somewhat bringing that back, at least into Vanilla Minecraft that is)

Trying to remove the data and resource pack from my world leaves some of the doors in my world with a tiny unbreakable block in the corner. I've tried reloading but the only fix is to add the resource/data packs again. Any idea how to fix this?

I totally forgot to put this in the documentation! I'll add it now.
Simply run /function _better_doors:uninstall and it will remove all the wood planks in the corner of each door!

Alternatively, remove all the doors with the corners on them and THEN uninstall the datapack.

Hope this helps!

Download the resource pack to fix this issue!. To make myself sound less vague, there are files you will have to download. The resource pack and the data pack. Under the download button it says "requires resource pack". Click on that and download the resource pack after you downloaded the data pack. Then put them in your .minecraft folder and you will be good to go :) hope this helps :D

It's a great idea - but I'm working on other projects just now. It's in my list though so I may update this in the future.

Does this work for a single door too, and can you make this a mod and post it on curseforge, this would really do great in a realism modpack (where i am working on)

I don't create mods - I only use datapacks and resource packs.
Thought the mod "Malisis Doors" which this pack was inspired by has the same feature for 1.12.2. www.curseforge.com/minecraft/mc-mods/malisisdoors " rel="ugc nofollow noopener">www.curseforge.com/minecraft/mc-mods/malisisdoors


The double door opening is a part of the "Quark" mod too I believe.

This is amazing. Just 2 questions:

1) Will you erver add a trapdoor and gate animations?
2)Can I make a review* of your datapack? (Obviously I'll include all the credits and links to you, the creator).
*I mean a YouTube video in Italian (as I'm an Italian Videomaker)

Glad you enjoy! :)

Unrelated to the datapack - but if you're having issues with mods - I'd recommend installing the CurseForge launcher (https://curseforge.overwolf.com/) if you'd like to download mods/modpacks. None of that rubbish downloading jar files online and doing all the annoying setup - you just have an application with a search option and can add mods with the click of a button. (#notsponsored)

Up to you. Thanks for your comment! I probably will not be recreating that type of pack though got other ideas in works/to-do list :)

I noticed that when I open and close doors it seems there are two pairs of doors instead of one. It's really weird, and yes I tried putting the resource pack at the top and bottom. AND yes the data packs was the only one on. IDK why this is happening, do you?

Yeah, that sounds like the resource pack isn't installed if you are seeing 2 doors in a single block. If it's enabled all doors technically become invisible :)

Or you've not placed the doors with the handles next to one another.
