    If you like the datapack, please diamond and favorite :)

    This datapack adds a magic system to minecraft, but not in the way that most datapacks do. In this datapack, you use a bed as a sort of portal to a nightmare, where you can get magic items. Nightmares can be kept at bay quite easily. The hard part is beating them, making nightmares a mid to end game goal.

    What are the nightmares?

    How can I stop nightmares?

    What can I get from nightmares?

    How do I install the datapack?

    changed dream fragments so they have to be in your offhand. This allows me to add different types of dream fragments more easily. How many people actually read this thing? Let's see. Leave a diamond if you read this. :)

    So I got a good idea, add a boss battle that gives you a drop wich makes it so either you can't have any dreams or each time you sleep you get a dream

    Stopping dreams is pretty easy. Just put a cobweb in an item frame near your bed. And I will definitely add a way to heighten your chances of getting a dream.

    Lots of you have been requesting a way to get out of nightmares. Introducing dream fragments! Nightmares will be made possible, and if you beat them, you will get dream fragments which can make a number of different things, from spells to special items. Nightmares will be able to be kept away easily by placing a cobweb in an item frame above your bed, so nightmares will be more of a challenge you can take on than a necessity. This update will be released when we reach 2000 views and 300 downloads :)

    Here's my current thoughts on the nightmares (and some issues with them.)
    In this case, I have a diamond Helmet, Chestplate, and Sword with various items you would find in a 'nomadic'/speedrun-type of play.

    === SPOILERS! ===

    ANVILS: This nightmare isn't quite spectacular, and the lava to just make sure the player is killed seems lazy.
    My fixes: Make the Anvils that drop despawn when they hit the ground, and then spawn another volley of Anvils until the player dies. This prevents the player from just tanking them and then drinking a fire-resistance potion to wait until they inevitably die.

    BUNNIES: There aren't even any bunnies in this nightmare, and it's not hard to fight off the horde of zombies that actually comes from here.
    My fixes: Make it actual killer bunnies. If not possible, then make the horde of Zombies continue spawning until the player dies.

    DEMISE: Ah, the ol' "stick me in a pit and force me to kill myself."
    Alas, you can still trap yourself by placing a block in the lava pit.
    My fixes: Make it so the Lava cannot be destroyed; set Player game mode to Adventure, just keep setting that one block to Lava, etc.

    DROWNING: This is a good nightmare, but you can just place a few blocks in a corner and make yourself a permanent air pocket and kill the Drowned, 'defeating' the nightmare. Plus, drinking Water Breathing lets you easily kill the Drowned.
    My fixes: Set player gamemode to Adventure so they can't save themselves, and prevent them from drinking a Water Breathing potion. That can be just force-clearing the status effect whenever it is drunk, or outright deleting/holding the items in escrow until death.

    FALLING: This is a good nightmare, though I would prefer that instead of falling out of the world that the player is put a thousand blocks or so in the air so they can't save themselves.
    My changes: Instead of teleporting the player under the world, teleport them a thousand blocks or so in the air and making sure they die some way (like if they're above water set it to ice) so that they don't escape.

    GHAST: A good nightmare. Blindness makes seeing incoming fireballs difficult, and also making shooting the ghasts difficult.
    My fixes: Make Ghasts respawn if they are killed, and prevent the player from building.

    HEROBRINE: Herobrine was pathetically easy. I probably could have overcome it with a wooden sword. It takes little more than jumping to maintain your distance from the zombies. I was able to kill them all, leaving me with Herobrine, who I was able to 'kill' by breaking the Glowstone underneath him, taking his armor and head.
    My fixes (EITHER OR):
      1. Put player in a Barrier cage, and then lightning them to death. Just keep striking until they die.
      2. Set player gamemode to Adventure and keep spawning Zombies until they die. Maybe arm them with weapons, too?

    LAVA: It's a really good nightmare! I actually really like it, other than the fact that if you're quick enough you can drink a Fire Resistance potion and/or build a small shelter to avoid the nightmare.
    My fixes: Prevent player from building and from having Fire Resistance.

    PHANTOMS: There's no surviving this, there's simply too many. In theory you could kill all the Phantoms, but that isn't happening. Good nightmare.

    RAVAGERS: Just like Phantoms, you're not surviving this. Again, you could theoretically kill the Ravagers, but all that is needed to fix this is to keep spawning them in.

    SPIDERS: You'll probably not survive this, unless you have Netherrite and Golden Apples. There's just so many Spiders!
    My fixes: Keep spawning Spiders in case the player can kill them.

    TNT: It was quite easy to survive the TNT; break out of the box, light the TNT and run to a corner, and take only a few hearts of damage. Prevent the player from escaping the box, and you've got a solid nightmare.
    My fixes: Set Player gamemode to Adventure so they can't escape the TNT box.

    VINDICATORS: There's so many Vindicators that you can't possibly escape. Only building a pillar could save you.
    My fixes: Same as above

    ZOMBIES: Like I said with BUNNIES, killing the Horde is relatively easy as long as you have enough weapon durability. Keep spawning the army and you've got a solid Nightmare.
    My fixes: Keep spawning zombies so the horde never thins.


    === OVERALL ===
    I have to say that this datapack is built on a solid foundation, and works if you're playing by the mod's book, but we all know that players typically aren't this way. They'll do whatever it takes to get through, so you have to anticipate this.
    Plus, it is a death gamble on Hardcore mode, which is a shame.
    I also do not like that the inventory is lost on death. It feels less like a nightmare and more like a punishment.

    My general fixes:
    1. Regarding the inventory... (EITHER OR)
      a. Set keepinventory to true,
      b. Store player inventory somewhere else safe and sound until they die of the nightmare, and give it all back when they respawn in their bed.
    2. Set the player's gamemode to Adventure, and then back to whatever it was after they die.
    3. For Nightmares that feature mobs, keep spawning them in so that the hordes never run out.
    4. When playing Hardcore, make sure that the player respawns after they die; set their gamemode back to Survival when they come back as a Spectator.

    I'm not sure how difficult implementing any of this will be for you, as I have no experience modding in MC, but I hope that you can take at least one of these ideas and run with it.

    I will implement a lot of your ideas, but funilly enough, you saying that you could beat some nightmares makes me want to make more of them beatable. I think I will make it so that if you "beat" the nightmare, you are returned safe and sound to your bed. I will also be adding an easy way to stop nightmares, so nightmares become a way to get rewards. Thanks for your feedback :)

    so I had made a world specifically for this. I thought it was cool until I noticed that my inventory could be lost in these. One night, I had put everything in my chest except for my shield and helmet (i have no idea how i missed it but i did). I had the phantom nightmare so i started freaking out and of course, i died. I thought that was kinda cool until I noticed that, plz fix

    yeah. I plan on adding a way out of nightmares, but currently the only way out is dying. This is because the only way to teleport a player to their bed is by killing them , but I will try to find a workaround...

    I have kinda a fix for this issue, but it might take some tinkering because it's gonna be weird for multiplayer. Pretty much you could activate Keep Inventory and when they die turn it off.

    In multiplayer it would be weird though because other people could die and respawn with their stuff.

    yeah. thats what I was thinking, and it would only be one tick, so the likelyhood of someone dying in that time is low. THe only problem would be if they are in hardcore...

    Well, nightmares are meant to NOT kill you in the first place. They just scare you. So what if you set something up where the person is ABOUT to die, and then gets teleported safely to their bed. You could still have challenges in the Nightmares, even rewards, but I really suggest that you make the Nightmares 100 percent NON-DEADLY!

    The problem with this is that youd have to set up a LOT of timers and youd probably have to revamp some of the Nightmares.

    Or you could do the one tick idea, just write on this page DO NOT PLAY IN HARDCORE MODE!!!

    I think an unavoidable outcome of losing your inventory and dying in the nightmare would just take away from the fun and experience of the game and just make people not want to sleep. The idea of having nightmares is pretty nice though so it'd be a lot better if instead of just a definite chance of dying and losing your inventory you could survive and they didn't last long. Five minutes of surviving needed might not really be that enjoyable if they all happen so often, so it'd be better, honestly, with just a minute at most instead. Keep in mind that every time you would die in the nightmares your chance of having one is planned to go up, after all. :p But I think it'd be better if they just end and you finish sleeping and night ends peacefully after a minute of it, yep. For gameplay's sake. Since... dying and losing your hard work with no way to avoid it isn't all that fun.
    Hopefully that helps~.

    Im working on other datapacks right now, but when I get bak around to this one I will add a better way to get out of nightmares. btw, dying in a nightmare would not make your nightmare chance go up, as I have not implemented that feature, and when I do, I will make sure that dying in a nightmare does not bring up your nightmare chance.

    Ah, then good luck with it when you get back to it, at least. :) It's good that you will since it can be a very nice feature to have if it's more of a challenge and a scare rather than a "You will die now" situation. That's good.
    It's good you would make sure that dying in a nightmare doesn't bring up your nightmare chance though, for that would be some rather awkward cycle. xD

    Players should get a way out of the nightmare, but this will be very difficult to do, since due to the datapack, the player(and especially hardcore players) will always avoid beds.
