New in Town | The Settler's Experience Data Pack Minecraft Data Pack

Ready to move in?


New in Town is a multi-stage, story-driven, settler's experience Data Pack for Minecraft version 1.16.5. You are tasked with founding, building up, and defending a modular settlement from the forces of the Nether, then taking the fight to them as you construct your own Nether Fortress! It is partially inspired by the long-discontinued Tale of Kingdoms mod, and seeks to recreate and expand on the town-building gameplay it popularized.

Starting from humble beginnings -- a settler's wagon -- employ the help of your Town Planner's expertise to build new settlement sites, from Mines and Lumber Mills to the Wizard Tower and Bard's College. As your town grows, invaders from the Nether will emerge nearby, seeking to destroy you. Their attacks will grow more fierce, eventually culminating in the appearance of the Tyrant himself, a mighty Wither!

New in Town: Dimensions Pre-Release!
There's still a long way to go and lots of content to add, but you are still welcome to download and enjoy a special first look at what will eventually be roped into New in Town proper. The dimensions and structures added by this pre-release are compatible with this New in Town data pack, however you do not need to have New in Town installed to enjoy and explore the dimensions and content of the Pre-Release; it is entirely independent!

What to expect when you download New in Town:
  1. The Data Pack Zip File includes a Readme with helpful instructions for installing the data pack in the new 1.16 manner, as well as a strategy guide to help you get started and explain various time-and-progression mechanics, like Nether attacks.
  2. When you load your world with New in Town installed successfully, you'll receive the Town Charter when you collect an Oak Log. (Oak Logs are the only type that will work for town structures.) Click the text in that book, and your Wagon will generate around you.
  3. IMPORTANT: It is not recommended that you start your settlement near a large body of water, and especially not in the middle of an ocean. This can cause naturally generating features to generate very near or overwriting your Wagon, or not generate at all, as well as cause Nether attacks to destroy parts of your Wagon or town. You will receive a warning prompt if New in Town detects this as a risk.
Server Admin Information:
  Due to being a data pack, New in Town is not compatible with Paper or Spigot. It is presumed incompatible with Bukkit. Reports indicate that it may be compatible with Forge, but this is not verified. As a result, support with any bugs related to New in Town in a Multiplayer setting may be limited to Vanilla and Fabric servers, but you are welcome to join our Discord and engage in discussion and possible workarounds for any problems you experience running this data pack on your server.
  Do also ensure that Command Blocks are enabled on your server, as certain features and mechanics utilize them to run location-based functions.
  For more information, it is highly recommended you read the "Server Admin Info.txt" file inside the New in Town zipped folder.

Uninstallation Instructions:
Before removing New in Town from your world, use "/function nitk:uninstall" to clean up excess entities. The villagers in towns, fortresses, and end cities, as well as the structures themselves, will remain, but all other features of New in Town will not work. The villagers will remain persistent, but players will become able to kill them if they choose. You will need to perform this action at all areas where New in Town features exist, including in each dimension, as New in Town does not forceload these areas.

Update 2.4.5 : 04/27/2021 1:50:21 pmApr 27th

Counteroffensive:
  • Fixed the Soul Forge once again, hopefully for the last time. The stack of 64 in the output slot should now always transmute into a single Netherite Scrap, and when this happens the items in the input and fuel slots are not lost. Additionally, breaking the Blast Furnace or the Soul Campfire replaces those blocks in their correct positions. This also means Hoppers can no longer feed into the Soul Forge's Blast Furnace, which was never intended.

This can happen due to server lag. Your server's OP can rectify this for you by using "/scoreboard players enable <playername> nitContract"

This isn't a bug with New in Town, per se, but a solution to help prevent this under all circumstances going forward will be included in the next major update (this part of said update is already complete)

The Fleet Manifest is used in the Buried Ocean. The Excavation Lease only works in the Primordial Desert if you have the beta version of the Dimensions Pre-Release for 1.17, which is available in the Discord.

Those are indicators to help you locate the naturally generating features around your town, such as the Floating Island. Two in particular can be hard to locate, hence the Xs.

Did you start your town too close to a large body of water? That's specifically warned against in this post and the readme file.

If there isn't enough solid land around your settlement, in order to not crash the game, New in Town instead just doesn't spread the Nether attacks and instead keeps them at the wagon. You would have received a warning that some natural features may appear very close.

Make sure you're using Polished Diorite instead of normal Diorite, and otherwise just check the recipe closely. Beyond that I can't help without more information

That's a VERY long stretch. Bedrock's abilities with behavior packs are very different from data packs, and as I understand it, far more limited.

There is no supported feature for removing towns--this is a settler's experience, and to some extent, you need to cope with where you settle through thick and thin! If you're unhappy with the location of your town, a new world is always going to be the recommended avenue.

Is there or are you planning to implement a way to get the artifacts or other one time get items to respawn? it seems to be a common problem that the minibosses despawn and cant be respawned by normal means, and the castle components and books can only be gotten once.

Level 55 : Grandmaster Programmer
kanokarob
kanokarob avatar
The "common problem" of the minibosses only occurs when players switch to Peaceful mode, which naturally would detract from many parts of New in Town, and so there is no real way to respawn them for this reason.

All recipe books except the End Portal Recipe can be obtained more than once, but yes, the Castle Permits are a one time trade to limit the size of the player's castle to 6. This is as intended, so there is no planned way to increase this.

If a player or server owner wants to distribute more of these items for any reason, including but not limited to players losing their unique items (so-called for a reason) they can use "/function nitk:debug/devbox" to get a chest with one of every unique item to use how they please.

New in Town is not compatible with Paper or Spigot servers due to limitations in those server APIs that the developers have so far elected not to pursue resolving.

That said, if one were to install New in Town on a world where the Enderdragon was already killed, the End would not need to be reset. The invasion of the End triggers as long as there is no loving Enderdragon, it doesn't mind who killed it or when.

By design, there is not. If one really wanted to, they could bypass the book and just use "/function nitk:contract" in any dimension, but it's compatibility at that point would not be guaranteed.

Hey I have a question; How do I get the end city recipes? I beat the end fight and started my city in the end islands, not the main island, so maybe thats the problem, but for some reason I didn't get the book for the recipes and there's no villager to trade it to me... Can you let me know how I get that, for reals or with commands? (I'm not opposed to those)

There should be an Endermen in your End City lobby, in the back-roght corner looking out the window. He is your City Planner, and you can right click him to trade for the recipe book! Since you're building a home for the Endermen refugees, they are the ones populating your city, but they can be trades with as though they were villagers!

There is a Minecraft bug that can sometimes cause the hitboxes of the entities for these tradeable Endermen to be mixed up, so if you're not able to open his trade menu, you can do so by attempting to run inside of him while right clicking repeatedly.

Just download the new version and paste it into the datapacks folder of your existing world, then delete the old version! You'll need to use the command provided in the changelog to get the first new recipe.
