Extend the range of a beacon's effects by adding more layers to the base pyramid, up to 8 layers. Each layer adds 10 blocks of range and 2 additional seconds to the effect up to 180 blocks from the beacon and 24 seconds of effect time on a max level 8 beacon.

Anything in the #minecraft:beacon_base_blocks tag is counted

Hi, great datapack, however I noticed something in the behavior of the range.

Normal vanilla beacons have a square effect, effect emanating from the beam, regardless of Y-Level and 50 down from the beam, so in effect it's a rectangular area of affect rather than a sphere.

However when I a build a maxed beacon as per this datapack starting a Y=0 (beacon in the end), then go up really high in an area where I have beacon effects at ground level, I lose the beacon effects even though I'm still at the same X,Z coordinates and as per vanilla behavior Y-Level should not matter.

So I did some testing flying around in creative mode, and as far as I can tell it appears the area of effect is a sphere, which means if you build a beacon very low and go high up, this datapack may actually gives less range then a default beacon as it does not use the beam as the center of the area of affect, but I suspect rather the beacon itself or perhaps the base of the beacon.

Some old but still quite good info on how beacons work: Beacon Mythbusting by Xisumavoid

Additionally, when I skim the edges, instead of the full time effect it seems to refresh with a few seconds fewer.

Example, 8 level beacon at ({beacon blocks themselves all 6 effects} 1,8,1 / 2,8,1 / 1,8,0 / 2,8,0 / 1,8,-1 / 2,8,-1)

130, 177, -82 Full effects with 23 seconds.
130, 178, -82 No effects at all

Lost all effects at at 130, 178, -82, fly closer to beacon:
74, 178, -46 21 seconds effects regained
74, 152, -46 23 seconds effects

Close to beacon beam:
5, 306, -3 Above build height, no beam no effects
5, 300, -3 Above build height, no beam, 16 seconds effects
5, 251 -3 16 seconds effects
5, 177, -3 21 seconds effects
5, 174, -3 23 seconds effects

Hi, Loving your datapack but unfortunately I had to stop using it. It seems to be clashing with another datapack I have called Harvester. Would you have any clue as to why this is causing a clash?



Here is the Harvester datapack: https://www.planetminecraft.com/data-pack/harvester-4774856/

Would be much appreciated if you can help fix this. Your beacon datapack has been the best way to extend the beacon range in the most vanilla feeling way.

I've not got the slightest clue how to fix this, but the extended beacons don't deactivate if you place a solid block over them. The beam is cut off, as expected, but the effects are still refreshed, and still given if you come in range.

Great datapack! Highly recommend it. But I have a problem where regeneration doesn't work, could you help me out? :) The effect is given, but the player doesn't heal at all.

I've fixed the code and sent it to Auxhil. The data pack should be updated to fix this issue soon. Once it's updated, you'll have to download it again and replace the version you currently have.
