    Welcome to Minecraft: Waystones!

    Don't forget the Resource Pack!



    This pack adds Waystones to your pack/world without changing anything.

    What's a Waystone? Well, it's a teleporter that works in pairs to get players from point A to point B instantly. Using Waystones, you can build your own custom teleportation network anywhere you like! The distance between Waystone pairs can be millions of blocks apart, the distance is irrelevant... but they must be in the same dimension.

    When I say they work in pairs, this means that the first one you build sends you to the second one you build, and the second one sends you to the first one. The next pair you build will be similarly linked, and so forth.

    Okay, so how can I make Waystones?

    This is pretty simple, too. You'll need to craft yourself a Talisman of the Way, a new tool used for placing Waystones. It's not a super cheap recipe, but Waystones don't suck, so... Plus, it has unlimited uses.

    You'll need 4 Gold Ingots, 4 Nether Stars, and a Heart of the Sea...

    Once you have one, you can Use (right click) it to place a Seed Crystal anywhere you like. When you do, the block you're standing in will become the new location for one of a pair of new Waystones, and a Glass block will appear with a rotating Nether Star inside it (this is the Seed Crystal).

    A Seed Crystal

    Using the Talisman again in the destination location will create the two Waystones - one at your current location, and one at the location of the Seed Crystal. That's it - it's really that simple. Once a pair is created, the next use of the Talisman simply places a new Seed Crystal to create another paired set of Waystones.



    •To use a Waystone to teleport to its paired Waystone, just walk up to it.

    •To 'cancel' a Seed Crystal's position so you can reposition it, just smash it like it's the printer from Office Space.

    •To remove/delete a Waystone and its paired Waystone, smash a Bottle o' Enchanting near the base of one of them.

    Enjoy! :)

    I can, but I won't.

    I don't want players to have to expend experience to use a Waystone.

    Yes, I do mind.

    If you feel that there are 'bugs' in a datapack, you should alert its author. Hijacking another person's material and 'fixing it yourself' is not okay - you should create your own datapacks instead.

    This is intentional - while the Waystone exists, its stone base and the air blocks above it are constantly maintained.

    This way, one doesn't teleport to a Waystone whose foundation has been destroyed and die right away :)

    Just a quick question about this. Does this do any chunk loading? The problem with most teleport mods, is they like to keep chunks loaded and lag over time.

    Looking at the code, it doesn't look like it, but I'm no expert.

    Yes, new Seed Crystals and Waystones created cause the chunks they're in to force load; when either are destroyed, their chunks stop getting force loaded.

    Your question is apt - the unloading of chunks is a subtle but annoying problem with teleportation in data packs!
