This Datapack adds Garden Gnomes to your Minecraft World!

During the Day, Gnomes will be made of stone, and not move. They are a statue. However, when the sun sets, they come alive!

Currently, there are 3 Variants. One has a red hat, a green shirt, and blue pants. Another has a red hat, a blue shirt, and green pants. And finally, the other one has a blue hat, a green shirt, and blue pants.

Killing/Destroying Gnomes will drop their stone variant. The type of Gnome is displayed in the lore of the item.

Gnomes will naturally spawn in your world wherever other passive mobs are able to spawn.

Update: Gnomes no longer drop xp when killed/destroyed.

-It's not working?

*Make sure you have installed the datapack properly. It should be in the "datapacks" folder of your world save.

*Make sure you do not have a folder within a folder.

*I have been told Forge tends to sometimes mess with datapacks. If you are using forge and this is not working, try using Fabric instead.

*Try un-installing and re-installing.

*Make sure the difficulty is not peaceful mode.

-Can I use this in a video?

*Yes! As long as you provide me credit with the minimum of a link in the description to this page directly, you can use this!

-Where can I report bugs?

*You can either report bugs here on this site, or my preferred method is to join my discord (linked below) and letting me know there.

You can join my discord! You will be able to be notified of new uploads and content updates. You can report bugs, and even be able to beta-test my projects before they are released to the public!


Thank you for downloading! If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, either let me know here, or join my discord above in the Community tab!

This is awesome, thank you. You corrected some of my big oversights lol.

I have a couple comments though. Yes, the natural spawning would replace pigs, but I added a thing in there to make sure the player isn’t near so it doesn’t affect pig farms.

It was never my long-term goal to have them naturally spawn, it was just a placeholder until I got the motivation to update it. My plan was to eventually have “Gnome Burrows” spawn around the world, where you could find a little group of gnomes inside.

Other than that, I love the changes you made! I will be sure to add a bunch of these when I update it! Thank you

honestly im already working on changing the code to use armorstands instead of item frames to allow dispensers to spawn the gnomes, also forming ideas for a evil gnome who attacks every thing in its sight
i also want a third type of gnome but i dont really have any ideas for what to make it do

idk if this is these changes are too big and will make my unofficial edit draft to much away from you'r original datapack/concept

Make sure it was installed correctly. It should be “Gnomes RP”

Does this Work on servers? I downloaded it to the server datapack folders, followed instructions and cannot seem to get it to work! the resourcepack downloaded successfully but no little gnomes.

It should work on servers. Make sure you have checked everything in the FAQ tab, especially that you can not be in peaceful.

If it is not working, type “/reload” and see if the chat message that the datapack is on comes up.

If you do see the chat messages, type “/function gnome:summon/red_blue_green” This should summon a gnome if the datapack is on.

And finally, note that I made gnomes somewhat rare.

Please let me know after you’ve tried this and let me know the results. The results will give me a clue as to what is going wrong with your pack.
