Lodestone Gates V1.2

Changes This Version:
  • Updated pack format to not show as outdated to Minecraft 1.16

This datapack adds a fast-travel system to minecraft!


What is a Lodestone Gate?

  • A Lodestone Gate is a structure that allows you to teleport between any existing Lodestone Gates.
  • To create a Lodestone Gate, place a lodestone block and throw an Eye of Ender that has been named with an anvil on top of it. (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.

Installation

  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. When running this datapack for the first time, use the command /function ldgates:_init
WARNING: when you use /function ldgates:_init, it will destroy ALL existing Lodestone Gateways.

Notes


- This data pack is compatible with multiplayer.

- As of version 1.1, you can only create gateways in the overworld. I hope to allow inter-dimensional support in a future update.

- As of version 1.1, there is a global limit of 64 gateways at any given time. This is an artificial limit I imposed because each gateway has to be added manually due to the way I've implemented the datapack, and in order to limit potential lag. I believe this is a sufficient number for most users. Please let me know in the comments if there is a desire for more!

    In multiplayer do all gates pop up for everyone or the ones that you made yourself?

    You can add a feature to destroy a Lodestone without having to go there (possibly through chat prompt, just like you when you select your destination, maybe side by side...).
    This is because if you wanna destroy one, you need to go there, destroy and return to your base on foot (which can be thousands or even millions block away...)

    Can you add the possibility of consuming XP by distance travel, just like the Warp Book Data Pack?
    To not make teleportation too easy...

    Love the ideia to use this new existing block to implement a teleport feature!
    Is it multiplayer friendly?

    You couldn't before, but I just pushed an update today that allows you to do so! Just name the Eye of Ender you use to create the Lodestone Gate

    UPDATE: I just pushed an update today that allows you to do so (V1.1)! Just name the Eye of Ender you use to create the Lodestone Gate. The only downside is you will have to run /function ldgates:_init once again which will destroy all existing gates.

    It would be easy to make the shrines rename able IN PERSON, but their names that come up in the chat when teleporting would be very difficult to customize. If enough people ask for it I might spend the time to make the chat names rename able as well
