Lodestone Gates v2.1.0

NOTE: Version 2.0.0 is a total rewrite of the datapack, and will not be compatible with any previous version. Sorry for any inconvenience!

This data pack adds a fast-travel system to Minecraft!

Lodestone Gates | Minecraft Fast Travel Datapack | v2.1.0 Minecraft Data Pack

What is a Lodestone Gate?

A Lodestone Gate is a structure that allows you to warp/teleport to any other existing Lodestone Gate.

The destination gate can be in any vanilla dimension (Overworld, Nether, End) and can be teleported to even if the chunk isn't loaded.

To create a Lodestone Gate:
1) Place a lodestone block
2) Name an Eye of Ender with an anvil
3) Drop your Eye of Ender on top of the lodestone block. (unnamed Eye of Enders won't work!)

To teleport, step near the Lodestone Gate and you will receive a chat prompt to select a destination. Just click on your desired destination in chat and poof! You will instantly be teleported.

Lodestone Gates, by default, cost 3 levels of experience to use. This value can be configured using the command /function ldgates:config

To destroy a Lodestone Gate, simply destroy its corresponding lodestone block.

Channels (New in V2.0)

Channels are a new feature that allows you to create Lodestone Gates that exist on separate networks! Channels are specified when first creating a Lodestone Gate and cannot be changed unless you destroy the gate.

By default, a Lodestone Gate will be able to access any other Lodestone Gate in the default Channel. All Gates can only communicate to other Gates on the same Channel.

You can change the channel of a Lodestone Gate when creating it by surrounding it in a 3x3 grid of carpet like so:

Lodestone Gates | Minecraft Fast Travel Datapack | v2.1.0 Minecraft Data Pack

The Unique pattern created by the colored carpets will be memorized by the Lodestone Gate upon creation, and will only show other Lodestone Gates created with the same pattern.

You are free to use any number of carpets up to the full 8, and cardinal direction counts!


  1. Copy the .zip file into the world/datapacks folder of your minecraft save
  2. Close and reopen the world, or in multiplayer use /reload
  3. (Optional) Use /function ldgates:config to configure settings to your liking


  1. (Optional) Run /function ldgates:uninstall. This is optional, it just gets rid of all of the scoreboards I use for the datapack. If you only do step 2 that's fine!
  2. Remove the datapack from your world folder without reloading the world


  • This data pack was made with multiplayer in mind. It only uses 3 force-loaded chunks in order to store information. This means that you can have a large number of gates in use, as each one isn't force-loading a chunk.
  • There is a global limit of 4000 Lodestone Gates at any one time anywhere in your world.

This new version announces the teleport locations to all players. Will there be/is there a fix for this?

This is great! I have a huge ask of you. Is there any way you can integrate this with EconomyPlus so that there can be a cost associated with gate travel? Fendoran provides a plug-in template, here.

Do you have a video on how this works, reading the instructions made me more confused.

I'm running a Bukkit 1.16.5 server, whenever I drop a renamed eye on a lodestone nothing happens. I reloaded, initialized, etc. but it's just not working.

Version 2.0 is a complete rewrite of the datapack and fixes a lot of past issues people were having, please try again and let me know if you are having the same issue! Also, Version 2.0 no longer requires you to initialize the datapack, it's plug-and-play.

It doesn't work on vanilla survival? Why'd you have to make it use a function command T_T

Version 2.0 is a complete rewrite of the datapack and now, there is now no /function ldgates:_init command to start the datapack, it will work automatically upon opening the world.

As of Version 2.0, you can destroy any gate by destroying the Lodestone Block!
