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


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

Watch The Showcase Video (as of v1.0): 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])

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.

Would it be ok if I use this in an adventure map I'm making, and give you credit the same way as listed in the "Usage in Videos" section?

Honestly i've been playing on this datapack for a while and its awasome!
Kinda only bad thing is this that you cant see if doors are breaking while playing on resourcepack (i understand it is the only way to not show these breaking particles while opening the door). This really deserves more diamonds tbh
Btw this bug when doors arent closing and they stop half way through is not bad. This thing also happens irl
