Better Boss Battles is a 1.14+ Datapack for the Minecraft Java Edition.
This pack tries to make the boss battles in the game better and more interesting. The changes and additions it makes are mostly visual and don't make the game much harder. This early version only improves the Dragon Battle but I'm gonna add more features to the dragon and the other Bosses (Elder Guardian, Wither) and later maybe the Warden.
Because the pack is very WIP I need all the ideas for features you have. So write a comment if you have an idea for one of the bosses.

Newer Versions:
The features of the pack basically also works in the newest snapshot but because the end itself there is just completly broken I wouldn't recommend to go there.

Features:

Ender Dragon

Important Commands



Server:
This Datapack runs on spigot Servers and maybe on others, but I haven't tested it.


Credits






Future Plans:

  • Enhancing the Elder Guardian and the Wither (maybe the Warden)
  • more variety in the structures

So the dragon breath couldron lasts a minute and you can fill as many bottles as you want within that time?

Only add the Warden if he is Too Easy or Too Hard, ok.

Well, this pack isn't made to make the bosses really harder so I will also just upgrade the visuals of the Warden if there is something missing.

I can't tell at what time it will be done but this will happen when I have all the 3 bosses enhanced and are happy with the final result. So this could take some time...

Do you mean you're going to change the obsidian pillars? That would make it even more interesting :)

love the end tower designs, you should try fancifying the nest too

If you mean the well like structure in the middle where the egg spawns with nest I agree to you but it is technically very hard to detect this structure and edit it so I don't know if its possible. Also thanks for your feedback!

In 1.16.5 when the boss respawns the towers don't rebuild (I don't know if it's just me). Also the base of the tower doesn't fit with the magnificient top, you should make a custom stucture for this too I think, with some crying obsidian for example and some purple blocks. And your datapack should keep just being estetic because it's the only one. There are many datapacks which are modifiing the boss battle. So you can combine it as you wish !

I tested your issue in 1.16.5 and didn't had any problems there. Are you using any other datapcks mods etc.? Also the structure just rebuilds if there is an end crystal and the tower is undamaged. If you respawn the dragon with /summon no crystals appears and the towers don't repair themselves. I hope this will help you :D

I'm gonna test the bug in 1.16.5 and fix it if I find the problem. I also thought about making the tower better looking with crying obsidian but this would make the pack just 1.16 plus avaible so I don't really know. Because I really liked the idea with the shulker bunkers mentioned in a comment I'm gonna add it together with a settings menue so you can turn it of and on.

I think you should add another objective during the ender dragon boss fight because I think only having to destroy end crystals is very basic

i found this old datapack called dragon fight, it adds health to the end crystals and they have attacks to defend themselves, maybe you could try something like that?

If this already exists I don't really know why I should do it again. This pack should be compatible with the one you mean so you can combine them. Although the idea is pretty cool.

Little hidden structures with a shulker inside which will impede climb the obsidian towers

An idea, but I dont if its possible, I always have thought that ender dragon is easier to due its constant standstills over the central bedrock structure, that make it easier to hit

I wouldn't remove this feature completly but maybe the dragon could have some sort of forcefield or better attacks when it is down there?

If you have any ideas for boss features let me know so this datapack can get more of them.
