About:

This datapack allows an infinite number of players to track up to 50 other players or entities using a specialized tracking compass. The pack does so by designating either tracked or tracker roles to players and entities.


All players with the tracker role receive a tracking compass that points to the nearest entity with the tracked role. The compass cannot be thrown out, and cannot be moved in creative mode. If there are no tracked entities, the tracking compass will be removed, and will be re-given when new entities are tracked. Unloaded non-player entities and offline players are not recognized by the compass.

To set up, simply install the datapack and then follow the setup guide.


Installation

New World:
  1. Select Data Packs in the world creation menu
  2. Drag and drop the download into the Minecraft window, then select Yes to add the pack
  3. Click the arrow on the pack icon to load the pack, and then select Done
  4. Load and play your world, and follow the setup guide that pops up
Existing World:
  1. Navigate to your world folder. You can open it from the worlds menu by selecting your world, Edit, and then Open World Folder
  2. Go into the datapacks folder, and move the download there
  3. Load your world
  4. type /reload, and then follow the setup guide that pops up
Note that if you are installing the datapack into a pre-existing world, you will need to temporarily enable cheats in order to reload the datapack. Cheats do not need to be enabled after reloading, and are not necessary for new worlds.

Commands:


/trigger reload - redisplays the current stage of the setup screen


/trigger reset - resets all values and restarts the setup screen

/trigger track_mode - toggles between unidimensional and interdimensional tracking

/trigger tracker - assigns the tracker role

/trigger tracked - assigns the tracked role

/execute as <entity> run trigger <role> - assigns a given role to another entity. Requires the user to have cheats enabled.

I just installed the datapack and now whenever I execute commands, I no longer receive output from the server. The commands still work, but it just doesn't say anything back. Is there a way to fix this?

Yeah, the pack sets the sendCommandFeedback gamerule to false so that it doesn't send confirmations every time you click text in the setup.

You can re-enable it temporarily with /gamerule sendCommandFeedback true, but if the datapack is reloaded, then it will be disabled again.

If you want to re-enable it permanently, then navigate to the datapack folder, then go into data > compass_tracker > functions, and open init.mcfunction with notepad or another plain text editor, and simply delete the line "gamerule sendCommandFeedback false" or type a "#" in front of it, and then save the file.

/reload will redisplay it at the last stage that was displayed. For example, if you never interacted with the setup, then it will simply redisplay the beginning of it, but if you already followed the setup all the way through it will only redisplay the final stage (where you can assign/reassign tracker and tracked roles).

If for some reason you need/want to fully reset it, you can use use /function compass_tracker:reset, which will reset all values and redisplay the setup from the beginning.

is there a way i can make someone else a tracker or tracked? i cant give other people cheats with the server host that i use :/ i tried /function <name> <command> and also /function <command> <name> but neither of them worked, so basically my issue is can i change the team of someone else



edit: also is there a command list anywhere? i see in the autofill l list after i do /function that there are quite a few other functions, i doubt any of them are useful, but still worth asking





also diamond and heart ;)

Yeah, it's possible, but it's a tad messy. Basically you need to execute the function as the targeted player. So from a player who has cheats or from the console, use this command:

/execute as <player/entity> run function <function>

Use function compass_tracker:tracked for the tracked players, and function compass_tracker:tracker for trackers.

And no, I haven't officially compiled a commands list, but most of the commands/functions are just used internally. The main commands that are useful to the general user are the ones mentioned in the setup. Here they are:

/function compass_tracker:tracked - tracks player
/function compass_tracker:tracker - makes player a tracker
/scoreboard players set track dimension 0 - disables dimensional tracking
/scoreboard players set track dimension 1 - enables dimensional tracking


I'll probably look into finding a way to update the pack so it doesn't require cheats at some point, but for now, hopefully this is sufficient. And thanks :)

Everyone on the world needs to have the data pack or only the person who created the world?

Ok I know that this is the 3rd time that I’ve posted here, but I just wanted to say that this is really good. I tried it out with my friend, and it worked perfectly with no issues. Very well done.

If a hunter dies, does it give them a compass?

Yes. Trackers (Hunters) are unable to remove the compass from their inventory, because the pack kills any tracking compass items that are detected, and detects if a tracker has a tracking compass, giving one if they don't already have one (as long as there are entities being tracked). So if you die, the tracking compass will be in the same slot as it was before you died.

For anyone who downloaded the first version of the pack, I just added a dimensional tracking option if you want to be able to track where entities left a dimension (like tracking the portal where they entered the nether). It only tracks the most recent player to leave the dimension. and will only work if there are no tracked entities in the current dimension.

Is there a way you can port it to bedrock edition as well?

Probably not. I don't think bedrock uses the same command syntax or has the same functionalities, and I'm also not sure if it supports functions.

Well there is actually something called add on's for bedrock edition. Im not sure how they are made, but you could probably figurer it out.

Potentially, but as far as I'm aware, bedrock still uses the old command syntax, from before java 1.13. So, even if it is possible to still achieve the functions of this pack (several elements of this pack were not possible before 1.16), it would at the very least require completely recoding the systems. And considering that this took me about a week of relatively non-stop work to complete, and that I don't generally play on bedrock, unfortunately it just isn't worth my time right now to look into, particularly if it may not even be possible.
