[​1.16 VERSION NOW AVAILABLE] https://www.planetminecraft.com/data-pack/jdawgtor-s-structure-generator-for-1-16/

This data pack will let you to create your own structures, and generate them throughout your Minecraft world. Create dungeons, villages, towers, ruins, or what ever you want. The only limit is your imagination.




Included Features:

  -Customizable Structure Rarety
  -Biome Specific Structures
  -Inter-Dimensional Generation (Spawn structures in the Nether and the End)
  -Customizable Y Level Range Generation
  -Unlimited Structures
  -Protection Markers (For preventing structures generating in your builds)
  -Multiplayer Friendly
  -In-Game Generation Settings Commands
  -Random Rotation (see update log, or read manual included)


To learn how to use this datapack, the video on this post. Or on my Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ce3nddVzDHA
Update video with new features for 1.1.0: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rdkX380_w5E

!!!NEW VERSION!!! 1.2.0 See update page below.

I updated this data pack to now support random structure rotation.

A new command is now in the structure_types.mcfunction file that will add this new feature.
All you need to do is copy the command, and place with the commands for the structure you want to have random rotation.
IMPORTANT: Make sure to place the command AFTER the setblock structure_block command, and BEFORE the setblock redstone_block command. If you don't do it in the correct order it won't work.

Then add the structure ID and save the file and your done :D

The random rotation will not change the posY argument. But it will center the structure block to get the rotation to work.


If you have questions, or bugs to report, feel free to comment. :D

I have spent three hours trying to get this pack to work. I have tried changing the functions based on my knowledge of commands. I have tried downgrading the version to 1.16.1. I have tried summoning armor stands and therefore structures myself. All in all, I have spent a combined 40 minutes trying to actually see a structure generate.

The world download, with my structures, is down below. Please tell me what I am doing wrong.

(If the link 404s, try again after about five minutes).

This version of the structure generator only works for 1.15. There is a link in the page's description to the new 1.16 version of the pack. It will work from 1.16 to the latest release. You can also use the website jdawgtor.com/structure to drag and drop your structures and customize them without needing to edit code. :D

Hi, it still doesn't work after updating. I had previously changed the structure_types.mcfunction to use "unless" instead of "if", but I changed it back and it still does not work. I also tried using the debug function, and now it actually shows something, but I admittedly do not know what any of the numbers mean.

I don't know what you are updating. The website includes the 1.16 Structure Generator download, and you create your own Structure Pack with the options on the website. It's all a completely new system that isn't really compatible with the old files.
If you want your structures to work you'll want to take your .nbt files and drop them in the website and customize the options from there. It's a lot harder to try to update old packs, and much easier to just let the website generate a new one for you.
As far as the debug goes, it will show you the structure ID's (generated by the site) that the system is trying to generate. And a message will show up when a structure spawns. It also gives the armorstands a glowing effect to spot them.
I hope I helped, but if it didn't I'll need more detail about what your doing. :D

Mostly because I want the 1.15 version still available for people who want it. I probably should make it more clear this is the old version.

It isn't possible in the current version of the Structure Generator. But the 1.16 version is almost done, and it includes an overhaul in the generation settings which will allow it.

I can't get this to work in 1.16 snapshot (latest one) but it works fine in 1.15.2. I did see the armor stand fly around but no structures were spawning

Yes, the data pack doesn't work in the latest snapshot. A big reason why is the dimension changes messes up the whole system. I am planning to update the data pack when 1.16 fully comes out. I can't update it yet because the snapshots aren't stable and finished yet.

I can just imagine how useful this would be with the new ability to make custom dimensions in the latest 1.16 snapshot.
You could have an entire new dimension with custom structures in it!

I know! I'm extremely excited for it! However I may need to rework a lot of my generator in order for it to work. Not sure though, I'll have to wait till 1.16 is fully out before I start working on it.

I have two questions:

  1. Do the structures spawn in old chunks? (After you've already started the generation)
  2. Do Jigsaw blocks work using this?

Level 37 : Artisan Unicorn
JDawgtor
JDawgtor avatar
1. No they do not spawn in already generated chunks, unless you type /function generator:generate again.

2. I still have no idea you jigsaw blocks work. So I have no idea if they do or not.

Okay that's what I thought, but I decided to clarify. Thanks!

Also here's a good video explaining jigsaw blocks. They can be very useful for structure generation.

You should make it so that the structures point in a random direction instead of the same every time.

Have you thought about adding random rotation? I don't quite know how difficult that would be difficult to do, but I feel like it would add something to this. Great datapack btw, can't wait to use this on my server :)

Question: what is the limit for structure ids? (is it 64 the maximum item stack size or 127 the Byte size)

P.S. personally i use strings to never have to worry about limits
