Do you think that totems of undying make survival too easy?

Are you looking to challenge yourself by making it more difficult to survive in your Minecraft world?

If so, you might want to consider giving this data pack a try!

This data pack reduces the utility of totems of undying by reducing the maximum health of players when they cheat death with a totem of undying. Each totem reduces the players maximum health by half a heart for each cheated death, but the lost maximum health can be regained. A player can regain half a heart of maximum health by eating an enchanted golden apple. Your maximum health won't be reduced lower than half a heart and it also won't be increased over ten hearts. Dying resets the players maximum health back to the default value of ten hearts.

The data pack also works in hardcore mode as well as on multiplayer servers.

If you want to change how much max health is reduced and regained when a player cheats death with a totem of undying or appeases death by eating an enchanted golden apple, there are two options to do this.

Either open the data pack folder and navigate through "data/pickledtotems/functions" and open the load.mcfunction file, scroll to the bottom of the file and edit the values to your preference.

The other option is to open your Minecraft world where the data pack is installed and run these commands with [​value] replaced with the amount of max health you want the functions to modify by:
/scoreboard players set cheatingDeathPrice PKLD_dummy [​value]
/scoreboard players set appeasingDeathPrice PKLD_dummy [​value]

For example, If you want enchanted golden apples to restore a full heart instead of half a heart, you would type this command:

/scoreboard players set appeasingDeathPrice PKLD_dummy 2
