    Blueprints datapack combine the use of doLimitedCrafting gamerule and knowledge book item. You start the game with only a few blueprints (recipes) unlocked and you can't craft anything else unless you find a blueprint for it. Blueprints (knowledge books) can be obtained in various ways at various places. Found ones can be learned by right-clicking while holding them. Learned blueprints last forever and allow you to craft item that you have learned blueprint for.

    1. You start the game with only several common blueprints unlocked. You can't craft anything else.


    2. There are 3 tiers of blueprints: Tier 1 (green), Tier 2 (blue), Tier 3 (red). Tier 1 is the most most common tier and can be found almost everywhere, while the rarest Tier 3 blueprints can be found only in the end. Each tier has its set of items (see documentation for more details). IMPORTANT : While the diamond pickaxe is a tier 3 item you can still build a nether portal using buckets.


    3. Right-click blueprints to learn them.


    4. After you unlock an item, you can craft it.

    I can see one major problem with this.
    Having diamond tool recipe only available in the end will make getting to the end neer impossible.

    It's still possible using buckets of lava & water but not everyone knows this trick. I'll think over that later. Thanks for your reply.
