If you are having issues downloading the data pack from Google Drive, consider downloading it in a private window when you are not signed into google. I sometimes get a notification from Google that the user's organisation doesn't allow shared files, so if you happen to have problems maybe look into that.

If you are having issues installing or want help knowing how to do
something with the pack, ask for help in the comments.

If you experience lag or if it doesn't work open the settings with the command/trigger settingsand hit the Clear all Body parts Button. This will reset the whole data pack

There is also a new troubleshoot function that can be accessed by running the command
/trigger troubleshoot
Known and verified bugs
- sometimes body parts spin on the ground
- blood particles sometimes appear on arrows even though they didn't hit an entity

CreditNopeName made a video talking about entity motion. It helped me a lot with this data pack.

15 Update Logs

v1.4 : by Tschipo 07/25/2021 7:29:08 amJul 25th, 2021

- The data pack works in 1.17x now
- Added a new loot table-based system to detect entity death (https://youtu.be/UxaUzhNUvjI)
- Added Lightning animation (plays when a supported entity is struck by lightning) [WIP]
- Rewrote/Improved Ragdolls - they are way smoother and more epic now
- Changed the settings menu to be easier to understand:
There are now 4 body part modes:
1. Original (body parts can be picked up and crafted into the entity loot)
2. Original without crafting (same as original butt without the crafting part)
3. Aesthetic (body parts cannot be picked up + normal mob loot drops)
4. Custom (customize everything by yourself)
- Added version_checker
- Added a test after reload to ensure that the data pack will function correctly
- Added troubleshoot function (/trigger troubleshoot)
- Added new particles that play when the entity was killed by magic
- Body parts now won't take knockback when the mob died from drowning, magic or fire
- Added nbt inherited from the dead entity to the body parts (body parts from burning entities will burn for example)
- Prepared the data pack for player death animations
- Added assets for the blaze animation
- Added sugar_cane and #minecraft:climbable to the nonsolid tag
- Added spectral arrows to projectiles
- Changed the particle produced upon drowned death to be more epic

- Fixed Hand Items and Armor Items sometimes duplicating
- Fixed issues with low_p body parts
- Fixed arrows producing blood particles even though they didn't hit a mob (This fix is kinda broken)
- Fixed a wrong function call which led to body parts hovering in the air (calling the "OnGround" function midair)
- Fixed body parts can be picked up even though the ability to pick them up is disabled
- Fixed creepers not producing explosion events when they explode
- Fixed body parts having massive knockback because of arrows
- Fixed ragdolls not receiving upwards motion
- Fixed parts getting stuck in midair
- Fixed explosions not registering
- Fixed barrier items appearing for a split-second
