If I remember correctly, the MobGriefing gamerule also prevents some villagers' actions. At the beginning I made these "Anti-Grief" datapacks for those who wanted to disable the damage of a particular mob without disabling the damage of others.

I was using this on our 1.15.2 server without incident. I tried Xiuma's, but I did not like it. It basically rendered the creeper inert. It didn't damage structures or players. Players on my server had no reason to fear the creeper.

At least this data pack provides some interaction with the creeper (knockback) that can present a problem depending on where you are and serious damage can be experienced. Using this data pack I am aware that my structures are safe, but I may not be and I am OK with that.

I went back to using this datapack over Xiuma's.

Same here I started a hardcore world for my streaming an Xiuma's pack had no damage at all. This one is way better no structure griefing but still player damage.

Thank you so much! I was literally just about to complain about the knockback because it kept tossing me off my skyblock island :D

Will this work on a 1.16 + server? Also would this mean that players get damaged from their explosions but the blocks around them are not? I'd like this know this as I'm part of a server that uses Xiuma's datapack and we want to be able to have villager breeders without creepers destroying the terrain. Any response would be useful thanks!

Hi,
Currently, it is not possible to detect if a creeper has been activated by the rapprochement of a player in survival. Only the detection if the creeper has been lit with a lighter is possible.

At the beginning of the datapack, I spent hours trying to detect the activation of a creeper following the approach of a player but didn't get good results (the detection worked correctly in only 70% of the cases).

My goal was to preserve the damage done to the entities without the creeper being able to break the terrain.

After many attempts, I had to give the creepers a negative blast radius: This prevents the creeper from making damage to the terrain and gives the player close to the creeper the impression that he's ejected and taking damage. (But in reality, he only loses half a heart.)

In the end, the only really effective way to deactivate the creeper's damage on the terrain but not on the players is the modification of the mobGriefing gamerule which unfortunately also deactivated the damage of the Wither, Ghasts, Enderman and Zombies.

I can't think of anything better at the moment. (and haven't looked back since 1.14)

That sucks, Xiuma's is useless and the owner of the private server I'm on is considering removing it and letting creeper griefs happen so I wanted to look into seeing if any such data packs could exist.

Here's another answer I gave someone on my Discord server:

"The best method I found was to control the activation of the creeper according to the distance it was from the player so that I knew when it would explode to put the mobGriefing gamerule to False during a tick. (I really don't like this method.)
Another method was to put a negative blast radius on it. Although the creeper did not break the ground, it did very little damage and inflicted a lot of knockback.
However, I did not test it with fireballs."

I still have all my testing files so if you want them ask me in DM.

Maybe I'll look again at how to do this in the future, but not being able to detect exactly when a creeper activates is really annoying.

I have the same problem, my server is updating to 1.16 and we are currently using Xisuma's pack for this, but the creeper causes no damage, causing my players to get used to this and die on other servers, because of removed creeper fear, so I was hoping to change that for when we update, so a little bit of increased clarification would be nice. This is what I understand: Creepers break no blocks

Creepers ignite no tnt upon explosion

Players and nearby mobs still take damage from said creeper explosions...

Are these correct?

I'm using this for 1.15 and it works perfectly! It's the only datapack that I've found so far that also prevents creepers from hurting animals - they really like to blow up my dogs and horses so this is a life saver!

Are you copying/steal contest (Creeper, Ghast and enderman) from xisumavoid's datepack?

On the contrary Xiuma's pack does NOT damage the player which effectively takes away the fear of exploding creepers.

Hi, here is an extract from a message in the information channel of my Discord server :
My goal is to create a small datapack every two weeks, which adds or modifies something in Minecraft. [...] It that will add light features like VanillaTweaks (for exemple) does. [...] I will create my datapacks according to what I want to do and the time I have, no matter if it already exists or not. So don't talk to me about plagiarism or anything else, I don't care. I simply create the datapacks that I want to add to my survival world and then publish them.

So I wouldn't talk about plagiarism because that word is too easy to use. Because in this case, almost all datapacks can be accused of plagiarism of mods, plugins or other datapacks.
And unfortunately, some existing datapacks (I won't mention any of them) that do the same thing are very poorly optimized and that's why I create my own.

If you want to talk to me you can also send me a private message on Discord. My tag is Awhikax#0001.

Does this disable block destruction and also damage to the player/other mobs?

This disables block destruction AND damage to players/mobs.
I hesitate to publish a version that keeps the damage done to entities but it requires some commands executed every ticks.
I know that a few commands do not impact TPS (Ticks Per Second) but if we start adding some, then some with another datapack etc.... it can quickly lower the TPS.
So why not a separate update in the future.
