                  Hello everyone !
                  It's been a while.


                  Today, I come with a little datapack that someone has been asking me for his youtube channel:

                  A CompassTracker !

                  This datapack is not that technical one but at least, it is a special one that you can use to spicy up the gameplay with your friends.
                  For example, one person will have to face 2/3 people until she manages to kill the enderdragon, by that, the "hunters" will have a compass which will guides them to the prey (Its a concept taken from Dream's channel) !

                  How it works ?
                  It's pretty simple. All you need to know is that there are two types of player: a target, and a non-target.
                  Target players are players who recieved a tag in game that enables the non-target players to track them with a CompassTracker.

                  So, how do I give this tag to a player ?
                  Just type/tag <player> add ct_targetand replace "<player>" with a player name.
                  You can remove the tag by executing this command:


                  /tag <player> remove ct_target
                  And for the CompassTracker ?
                  Enter this command to recieve it.
                  /function ctcore:give_compass
                  When you have the CompassTracker in you mainhand (and only if), the nearest target will be tracked automatically !

                  Beware: even if custom dimensions are supported, there is a risk of griefing.

                  I'm having an extremely tough time getting this to work. The compass just does not want to track the players and I have tried multiple times to restart and make sure I'm using the right commands. I used another world and I still had the same problem. The only time the compass sort of work was when it was tracking myself as it would say 'now tracking: yourself" but it still wouldn't track me. I had multiple friends try to get it to work but it just doesn't want to happen. I would love to get this to work I just hope that these bugs can be fixed or something. its possible i may be doing something wrong (as I'm not the best with commands and data packs) but very unlikely.

                  Thanks for the comment.
                  To fix these bugs, i would like to ask you some questions.They will help me to figure out what is wrong woth the datapack.So, here there are:
                  - in which dimension are you when you're using the compass ?
                  - And where is the target when you're trackig it ?
                  - When there is a target near by, does the compass activate itself ?
                  - When you want to check the compass, are you helding it in your mainhand ?
                  Tbh, i tested the datapack with my friends and it worked perfectly. I'm very surprised it was not the case for you. By that, I'm sorry to hear that and i will do my best to solve the problem (if there is one).
                  Cordially, Jeff Wooden.
