Chimerabot's Basic Automation - Minecraft Datapack

Automated Breeding:
Just what it sounds like. A full list of animals that can be auto-bred is in the video. To put it generally, you can auto-breed any animal except Pandas, Bees, and Turtles. This is mostly just due to some idiosyncrasies with their breeding processes, but for Bees... well, there were just too many items for me to copy-paste. And auto-breeding bees would be really hard anyway.

Automated Planting:
Again, just what you'd expect. Drop (almost) any kind of seed or crop onto its appropriate farmland- whether it's sand, dirt, or plain old farmland- and wait a couple of seconds for it to plant itself. I've implemented this mechanic so that the crops don't automatically replant as soon as they're harvested. Currently, most conventional crops can be planted- including sugarcane, which you can still only plant by water- except mushrooms, flowers, and a couple of those types of plants. I may add them in a future update if you really want that kind of feature.

Automated Redstone:
This is the function that ties it all together. Drop one redstone dust on a redstone torch to get a minute timer, two for a second timer, three for a tick timer (20 activations every second), and four for a custom timer. Use /trigger custom_timer set <number> to set the number of ticks in which you want the timer to activate. Note that this affects every single custom torch in the world, so keep that information in mind when building with this item.

Item Orientation: Kindly suggested by Davgaming. This automatically aligns any item thrown by a dispenser or a dropper into the center of the block this was dispensed on. For automatic farms, this is practically necessary. Of course, it works with all items in general, so feel free to use it for whatever you want. Also, it does not apply to any items thrown by a player, only items that are thrown by the two blocks mentioned above.

Known Bugs:
- Animals will not auto-breed when packed too tightly; the breeding item will simply be lost and the heart particles display, but no child results
(Note that the bug shown in the video- two animals going into love mode at once when the breeding item is dropped in between them- has been fixed. This bug resulted, but fixed a larger problem.)

Show me your skills!
Think you've got an intuitive design using any of these functions? Get a world or structure upload, send it to me, and I'll try to feature it in an upcoming video. I'm no good at redstone, so I need you to do my work for me. Come up with a genuinely useful farm using this datapack and I'll be quite happy to showcase it.

And maybe consider subscribing?
I've just started to grow and revamp my youtube channel, 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. Believe me, I have big plans.

Thanks again for looking at this datapack, and have fun with it!
CreditHuge thanks to the redditors on r/MinecraftCommands who helped me with some of the material in this datapack. Thanks are also due to @Davgaming for his suggestion, detailed above.

I tried to make an automatic wheat farm with this pack but the problem is that droppers drop stuff randomly. By that, I mean that sometimes the droppers drop the seed on the block next to it, and then the items will stack and it won't work. I don't know if it's possible but maybe you could make it so the droppers drop straight down(up, left, or right).

That would be kind of tricky but I could try implementing it so that it plants even when there's a stack. Might be kind of wasteful, but it seems like there's no way around these kinds of things...

I'm thinking of when a dropper drops one of the seeds(including potatoes, netherwart, etc) it would teleport them to the center of the block so they will land on the block they're supposed to land on.

Right now I'm trying to figure out how I would do this and I have gotten as far as just adding a tag called "test" to a wheat seed that has been dropped by a dropper with this command:

execute as @e[type=item,nbt={Item:{id:"minecraft:wheat_seeds",Count:1b}}] unless data entity @s Thrower run tag @s add test

I'm trying to figure out how to teleport the item to the center of a block

teleporting it there is this command

execute as @e[​tag=test] at @s align xz positioned ~0.5 ~ ~0.5 run tp @s ~ ~ ~

but I cant figure out how to put it in a datapack exactly so you have to figure that part out.

Sounds like it would be pretty easy to implement, I can do some testing and look at whether it's viable or not.

I edited it because you went over to the dark mode side therefore saving your eyes.

But... I didn't. I mean, for the sake of my eyes, whatever, it makes it hard to read black text.

Definitly I will use it.

Could you add something like piston translocation?

I think I understand the concept but I can't quite tell exactly what's going on here. Since the guy said in the description that it was a bug, I'm not sure if it would be too easy to replicate... that is a cool idea, though.

Thank you for consider it https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RkqfsndUUTs&amp;t=103s also was used for high speed travel. I dont know (I imagine could very hard) how much hard is this to make, I remember some mods that make it, but I prefer so much more use datapacks
