This datapack fixes some problems with minecraft's current method of gameplay like not knowing the recipe to every item initially (why add a system that shows recipes if you have to learn them by crafting the item first? You still have to look at the wiki to craft them the first time) It also adds some arrow empowerment effects when you hold certain items in your offhand.

Offhand item uses
  • Bow and Crossbow Empowering (when held in your offhand, shooting an arrow will consume one of these items to empower your arrow with various effects; the effects apply if the arrow hits the ground or an entity; works with multishot enchantment to fire three empowered arrows)
    • Gunpower - causes a small explosion
    • TNT - summons tnt that instantly explodes
    • Prismarine Crystals - summons lightning
    • Blaze Powder - creates a 3x3x3 cube of fire (where it can exist) at the location
  • Compass - Shows your coordinates
  • Clock - Shows the current daytime in ticks as well as the general time of day (dawn, dusk, noon, etc.)
  • Heart of the Sea - Grants dolphin's grace (0:05) while in water

Better Smithing Recipes
The smithing table now has the ability to transfer enchantments, item names, or other forms of data between items of similar types. However, it will not combine enchantments or replace durability. The process works like this:
  • The item in the first slot of the smithing table is the base item. This is the item in which all of its data (enchantments, name, etc.) will transfer over to the item in the slot just to the right of it. You can see a list of items that can be merged at the end of this section
  • The item in the second slot of the smithing table is the addition. It will take all data from the base item except the actual type of item itself. For example, if you had a gold sword base item and a diamond sword addition, the diamond sword would inherit the name and enchantments of the gold sword (also any other data such as lore or tags, but you likely wont see data other than the names and enchantments of an item very often)
  • The third item is the merged item made up of both the base and addition item
Items can be merged in the following groups (meaning that the base or addition item can be two of any of the items in any one of these groups):

Axes: all axes
Hoes: all hoes :)
Pickaxes: all pickaxes
Shovels: all shovels
Swords: all swords, sticks, bamboo, blaze rods, and bones

​Boots: all boots
Chestplates: all chestplates, and elytra
Helmets: all helmets, turtle helmet, and carved pumpkins (I would have added player heads here, but the data doesn't transfer over, so the merged item would just be a steve head)
Leggings: all leggings

Recipes (No old recipes were changed, but new ones were added)
  • Bone block crafting has been shortened; you can use three or nine bones to craft one or three bone blocks respectively
  • All wood crafting recipes now give four instead of three
  • Arrows can be crafted with iron nuggets in replacement of flint
  • Mushroom blocks are crafted with nine of their respective mushroom
  • A single kind of mushroom block gives nine of their respective mushroom
  • All types of horse armor can be crafted in the same manner as leather horse armor
  • Enchanted golden apples can be made by surrounding a regular golden apple with 8 diamonds
  • End rods can be crafted by surrounding a blaze rod with 4 quartz
  • Glowstone can be crafted with redstone and gunpowder
  • Grass blocks can be crafted with one grass and one dirt
  • Gunpowder can be crafted with four sugar and one charcoal
  • Name tags can be crafted with one paper and one string
  • A single nether wart block turns into nine nether warts
  • Red sand smelts into orange stained glass
  • One type of log results in 16 paper if using the stonecutter
  • Prismarine crystals can be made with one prismarine shard and one glowstone dust
  • Prismarine can be crafted into four prismarine shards
  • Quartz blocks can be crafted into four quartz
  • Rabbit hide is obtained from smelting rotten flesh
  • Saddles are craftable with one iron nugget in each corner, three leather across the middle (one in each slot), and string in the remaining slots
  • One grass turns into wheat seeds
  • One tall grass turns into two wheat seeds
  • Soul sand is crafted with one sand surrounded by four bone meal
  • Soul soil is crafted with one dirt surrounded by four bone meal
  • Cobwebs turn into nine string
  • White wool turns into four string
  • Glowstone dust can replace coal to make four torches

I have been testing on my spigot 1.16.1 server, and whenever the latest version of the datapack is installed, the TPS slowly drains from 20 to 11-15 over a few minutes of the server being online. Its 100% your datapack, hopefully you can figure it out/reproduce it.

How much ram does your server have? Ive used this on a server with 10-20 people with 8 gigabytes and had no issues other than some slight lag here and there with other data packs installed as well.

8 gigs, 2-4 people average. We have around 40 datapacks and its a solid 20tps until we add this datapack exclusively.

Its amazing that you have 40 datapacks running on an 8 gigabyte server with no issues. Unfortunately, as stated before, I have not had this issue. The tick file in this data pack has three lines of code that are not even always active, so I am unsure as to why it would be the sole contributor to halving your tps.

Could you send me a screenshot of the console showing me which function files are causing the problem? You use the command /debug start, wait 10 seconds, take a screenshot of the console, and the use /debug stop. Perhaps I could fix the issue if I knew what was causing the issue directly.

I tried my best to optimize the tick file even more and I moved some aspects of this data pack to its own separate data pack. Perhaps that will help.

Thanks, I actually only wanted this pack for the food changes so I am using Better Food instead of this one. The tick lag seems to have stopped now. Thanks for the help and yeah, a spigot server with 10 plugins and now 50 datapacks running at 20tps all the time is surprising for me.

Hey! The "Better Food" tab in your website just leads to Better Loot, I would appreciate being able to download it <3
