Download Process
  • Download "chimerabot-s-baby-krakens-e1800.zip" from this page. Alternatively, click the Google Drive link if you don't feel safe downloading a .zip file directly.

  • Open Minecraft, and select the world you want to use the data pack in. Before you start up the world, click the "Edit" button, and then click the button in the editing menu titled "Open World Folder".

  • Put the .zip file inside the "datapacks" folder for your world.

  • Enter your world, type /reload in chat, and the data pack should start working.

  • This datapack requires a resource pack as well. Download it on this page and put it in Minecraft's resource pack folder, then activate it to present the full experience.

What's it about? Before I begin, I'd like to mention that this pack was made for YokaiS's Marine Wonders Datapack Contest. My datapack lets you summon and befriend your very own Baby Kraken, an oceanic killing machine! They act similarly to axolotls, automatically killing ocean life and helping you in fights, but they also have some other neat special abilities which make them stand out from the crowd of other water-dwelling creatures. You can even pick it up with a bucket and carry it wherever you go! (Seriously though, this thing is not your average everyday axolotl. It could totally take an axolotl in a fight.) The datapack also includes a few new related advancements for you to try and earn while you're at it.

How do I get one? You can get your hands on a Kraken by killing an Elder Guardian, which has had its loot table replaced with a 100% drop chance for a Kraken Egg- finally, something useful, am I right? Anyway, right-clicking on this egg while standing in water will hatch a Baby Kraken. Since their lifespans are so long, it won't grow up for you, and they don't spawn naturally in the ocean.

What are its abilities? The Baby Kraken gives all nearby players Dolphin's Grace, similar to dolphins (of course) but with a smaller radius than average. However, sticking close lets you move fast enough to keep up- this is one fast squid. It also shoots a prismarine dart at the nearest ocean mob every minute, if one's in range. This does enough damage to one-shot your average fish. As a matter of fact, it'll try and shoot almost anything that moves, provided that it's underwater at the time. The Kraken's darts can't go out of the water.

Note: This datapack was sort of rushed out to meet the contest deadline and could definitely use some work, especially in terms of the kraken animation. I could have done it smoother, but it would have taken time that I simply can't afford at the moment.
Also, I know the Kraken in the bucket has one eye, alright? Don't even think about mentioning it. Not a thought. I'm watching.

Maybe consider subscribing? I'm actively trying to grow my Youtube channel (a video for this pack is probably coming soon), and I'd really be pleased if you were along for the ride. If you liked this datapack, or my video, I'd appreciate any advice on how to get better at this whole thing. A subscription would be hugely valued, and then you get notified on my new posts and releases. Besides, it's totally free!

Thanks again for looking at this datapack, and have fun!

I took a look at the loot table, and it seems to be correct, though for some reason mine isn't working in testing either. I'll try my best to get something figured out soon... Thanks for mentioning it!

hey! i know its a bit late but, i tried to get this to work and it seems that every time i kill a guardian it gives me a prismarine shard in place of the kraken egg, is there a fix for this? (1.18.1)

Oh no, not late at all- I'm always gald to see bug reports. I did some testing and I'm getting the same problem you are, though there doesn't seem to be anything wrong with the loot table. I'll take a look and try to get things fixed soon.

I belieive it said in the description...
Anyway, first you have to kill an Elder Guardian to get a Kraken Egg. Hold that in your hand while standing in water, then right-click.
