Death Animations V1.4

For Minecraft 1.16x / 1.17x!

Update to newer Minecraft versions in progress!
I don't want to post a rushed version, so this might take a while!
Public 1.19 Test Builds

Note that this is a WIP (Work in Progress) data pack, so there may be bugs/glitches

The Download link will redirect you to an adfoc.us page. It is an easy way for me to make money off my data packs. If you want to make a direct donation and help me out, click here!
Make sure to click the skip button that appears in the top right corner after 5 seconds.

Note that this data pack uses a resource pack and will not work without it!

Mobs have new epic animations when they die.

Works with:
Zombies, Husks, Skeletons, Wither Skeletons, Strays, Creepers, Spiders, Drowned, Villagers, Zombie Villagers, Pillagers, Evokers, Vindicators, Pigs, Cows, Chicken, Sheep, Iron Golems, Ravagers, Phantoms, Endermites

Most body parts can be picked up with a right-click.
You can also use them in crafting tables or even eat them.

Make sure to adjust the data pack for your needs by opening the settings (/trigger settings)

Unique animations exist for Iron Golems, Ravagers, Endermites and Phantoms.

To check for updates, use/trigger menuand hit the Check for Updates button. There is also a Reset and an Uninstall button.

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
- Fixed poof particle appearing on entity death in 1.17
- Fixed grass_path being referenced in 1.17
- Fixed entities not resetting their loot table upon calling the reset function
- Fixed drowned mobs spawning a useless area effect cloud upon death

Yes, there is a required resource pack. You can find it when scrolling down on Modrinth.
This data pack still currently does not work in Minecraft 1.20
