Resurcepack not required : it only adds minor visual changes

This datapack uses world generation meaning that you have to install it whilst creating a new world.

The world is in a constant winter and you need to survive the brutal cold..

Difficulty : Hard

- Constant snow

- Slow healing : Natural regeneration is slowed to one heart every 2 minutes

- Witheringly cold water : (Gives you wither effect when in water)

- Snowier snow : When walking in snow you get slowness effect unless you wear boots (any type)

- Wind and Snow ambience : Wind sound effects play when in the cold, wolves howl at night

- mobs : Bears spawn in forests creepers dont spawn. wolves attack when too close

- Warmth of a fire : When near a campfire you gain regeneration faster

- Hardcore Mobs : All monsters damage increased and spiders put web at your feet zombies don't burn in daylight.

- No tree punching : you need to make flint tools to gather wood/stone instead of punching trees
for more info [CLICK ME[

- Frozen soil : Crops grow 3 times slower

- Animal hibernation : Animals spawn less frequently and chickens / pigs are extremely rare
  White foxes and wolfs are common everywhere
This makes food more scarce.

- more soon to come...

7 Update Logs

Update #7 : by OscMan 12/25/2021 7:24:13 pmDec 25th, 2021

Added an experimental version which includes a temperature system

- Temperature is displayed in a bar on the top of the screen when you are too cold it will turn blue
- The colder you are the worse the side effects (hunger, slowness, nausea, blindness, wither)
- Temperature slowly decreases when outside and exposed at night it is significantly faster.
- Wearing a leather chestplate or leggings will slow down the speed that you lose temperature.
- You do not lose temperature when under cover or inside a building.
- Campfires increase temperature when close.
- Water extremely degreases temperature

Can be downloaded with the google drive link.

I really like this update. I think if you made being "wet" a effect applied to the player that is only lost from being near a fire would make falling in water unplanned more punishing.

Tempeture system is very great a like how you made it a bossbar. Maybe add more ways to cure the cold or prevent yourself from getting cold maybe cold resistance potion that slows the tempeture fall. Or maybe new recipe for new warmer leather armor that would be crafted with wool and lether armor.

When trying to play on 1.17.1 it keeps saying validation failed and when you try to start world it goes to safe mode.

Firstly let me express my thankfulness about your pack. I love it. Ive started many hardcore play throughs with it and had lots of good fun (before dyeing to wolves, thats is ;D). The way its been made makes it an AMAZING challenge that makes me want to put in my all to resist the cold!! I only have one gripe about the 1.18 update. The world gen... I'm sure your rolling your eyes and saying "of course" but here me out please. :) The thing I loved about the old 1.17 and other previous versions world gen was the sparsity of the biomes.. it spoke to a deadened world thats been devoured by an ice age! It made sense for all the warm biomes to have vanished.. But in 1.18 they're all back but with snow? Logically this wouldn't make any sense... if its as cold as the bitter cold datapack makes it, these biomes realistically wouldn't exist.. now perhaps you weren't going for realism, which I can respect.. but the way you've added so many thoughtful little touches here and there makes me think otherwise. Like adding to the ambience by taking the soul sand valley ambience and playing it on repeat in the overworld, or the way getting flint tools as your first tool set works (which I love btw thank you for that XD) or the slow regeneration, or one of my personal favorites, the one where if you take a lot of fall damage you get slowness as if you've broken your legs! These small (and extremely creative) details are what make me think perhaps you were going for something that leans towards the more realistic side.

  Now this is only a suggestion. This is your pack after all, and you can do whatever you wish with it regardless of my ponderings, but I thought it would be really cool if you found a way to remove all the warm temperature biomes from the bitter cold world gen. This would bring back that feeling of an icy wasteland lost to time, some of the things of the old world.. gone forever never to be obtained.... Anyway, whether you choose to consider my suggestion or not, thank you for listening! Please continue to make this pack! its such a cool idea and one of my all time favorites in all of Minecraft, have a great day man! best of whishes! Oh and happy holidays!

The main reason that I added all the biomes is because Minecraft won’t allow random seeds when editing the dimension file (the file for adding/removing biomes) I also think that a snowy desert is a little odd so I’m working on another method of removing biomes while keeping random world generation. Thanks for your comment man it means a lot :)
