Kazuma, Kazuma! This datapack adds a special carrot on a stick staff that grants the user explosion magic! (A very basic datapack made for fun.)

Survival Update!?
Hi everyone! Nick Ryder here with a smollish update for the pack: The explosion staff version 1 is now craftable! I also reduced the drawbacks (the paralysis lasts for 5 seconds rather than 30, and attacking/mining disabilities last 10 seconds total) to make the pack actually playable in survival. Think of this as the lovechild of Kazuma's tact and Megumin's magic. Less firepower but better mobility!

To craft: place a stick and an ender pearl in any slots in a crafting table or inventory crafting space. Grab the book that appears and you'll be given the staff!

I still haven't been able to fix the level 2 explosion staff. So far the only way to viably use that one is to be playing co-op and have someone shoot arrows at it to activate the explosion (and have a third person building cover to survive the blast, if you all want to survive that is...). Still looking at tweaks.

Explosion Level 2 Update!: Check update log

NOTICE: Explosion staff level 2 will not work in minecraft 1.16. I am working on a fix for it currently. The first version of the staff works in minecraft versions 1.15-1.16

Update!?: This pack now uses the Explosions resource pack available in the new .zip download here! The datapack and resource pack come packaged in the same zip file for your convenience :)

So far the Staff of Explosions works on every minecraft version I've played (1.17 included). The second version of the staff only works in 1.15 right now.

The file you downloaded here is a folder that contains both the datapack and the resource pack! Look inside the folder and you'll see both :)

This datapack is great, but i think something that would really sell it would be if there was survival compatibility, such as a crafting recipe (maybe 2 blaze rods and tnt?) and a 5 minute cooldown, because you can spam it even if you get the negative potion effects. maybe you could also have the cooldown disabled/enabled as a command if you're using it in creative mode?

Thank you! And I agree, I really wanted to put in a cooldown but I didn't know how (still a beginner as far as datapack making goes), so I opted to put the extreme fatigue and paralysis to greatly discourage spamming it (because well, if you do you can't really do much else in the game.) 'Twas also anime-accurate so I thought it would be a viable workaround as a basic datapack. As for the crafting recipes, my only excuse is that I was new and didn't know how but also lazy and just wanted something to play with already :P.

Realistically speaking, I feel like a 5 minute cooldown for the ability itself would be accurate but also render the pack nearly unplayable in single player (spamming does give you the chance to double-tap before you're doomed to sit and wait around for 5 minutes, whereas you're definitely going to die if you miss with only one cast every 5 minutes)

That said, I'm on break from school now, so I'll see what I can do now that I have the time :D
Thank you for your support!
