NOTE: this is NOT compatible with the mod!
Directly based on the mod, this datapack will add in several Origins you can pick from when you first spawn into the world. The datapack balances some from the mod while adding in it's own at the same time. I made this into a datapack mainly because I got bored and wanted to do something lol.

As of V1.0, this datapack adds in 12 Origins! (including human)
Now as of V2.0, this datapack adds in 19 Origins!

Onto the abilities of the Origins!
Note: There are more in depth descriptions of the origins in the datapack itself

IMPORTANT: For those who use the origins who start out in the Nether, there are new crafting recipes using nether materials to make things just a little bit easier for you, recipes include things like smelting polished basalt to make iron nuggets and crafting a fungus stew using warped and crimson fungi. If you dont want these recipes you can remove them from the datapack itself by deleting the 'recipes' folder.

There is a chance that there will be more origins and updates added to this datapack at some point, so keep an eye on this page for a bit.
Shout out to my friend AlongCameN4te for helping me make this datapack and coming up with the ideas for some of the origins!

Where's V3.0? : by GoldSlimeling91 11/09/2021 1:38:39 pmNov 9th, 2021

Haven't been working on this pack at all since V2.0 came out, and also got covid recently so this update will only include 1 Origin into the roster and will be the final update to the pack.
Honestly this has been my most popular pack so far but I'm doing other things outside of this pack as of now and motivation is getting lower with this pack.

Basically, I'll be bug fixing and adding 1 origin in V3.0 and adding descriptions for the V2.0 and V3.0 origins on the page.
Keep an eye out!

Nope. Only if you have it on a Java server with a GeyserMC plugin (a plugin that allows bedrock players join a Java server). This project seems dead anyways. It's a shame. I used this datapack a lot on my SMP and since 1.18 came out, it completely broke. :(
