Lava Sponges 1.16

This datapack adds the following features:

  • Sponges can be used to soak Lava
  • Soaks a 6 x 10 x 6 area of lava below the sponge
  • Once a sponge soaks up Lava, it turns into a magma cube and there is no way to get the sponge back.
I'd like to credit Kikipunk and Daminator4113 for their Useful Composters datapack which I took inspiration from to summon entities atop a placed block, which is the backbone of this pack.

I have tested this on 1.16 but I believe it will also work with 1.15 as well.

I know it is not needed, but it would be kind of cool if the lava sponge was crafted.

For example:
1 sponge and 4 magma cubes. Thus making it a bit harder to soak up lava, since the nether is now the destination for many.

Grid pattern could be:

empty - magma cube - empty

magma cube - sponge - magma cube
empty - magma cube - empty

Output a Lava Sponge

You should first make sponges renewable first.

You could always consider using a plugin if using on a server like CustomCrafting. And create your own recipe for the sponges and a whole bunch of other possibilities as well. Or a datapack such as NewCraft which adds craftable sponges and a bunch more(160 plus recipes). Both options here solve the renewable sponges' issue for you.
