Did you ever miss a pet that was very dear to you
and for some reason decided to walk into a lava pit?

Now you can enjoy your pets a little longer with Pet Heaven!
If one of your pets dies, you can still see them roam around and enjoy life as a ghost while you sneak.
You can give deceased pets a rose (poppy) to make them ascent and leave with a big golden firework blast
or give them a Totem of Undying to flash them back into existance with full health!
To give a pet one of these items, you need to drop it at their feet and wait for them to pick it up.

Never lose a pet again!

  • Works after taming any tameable mob or giving any mob a nametag.
  • Includes death simulation of a pet, even though the pet doesn't die or get replaced.
    • Smoke Particles
    • Death Loot Table will be dropped on the ground
    • Death message in your current language
  • Show deceased pets while sneaking, using teams from the /team command. If you are already in a team, a red error message will pop up above your hotbar. (Might happen if you combine this datapack with other datapacks)
    • Deceased pets are shown as ghosts, or in other words: Semi-Transparent/Translucent
    • Ghosts will get a yellow nametag surrounded by white crosses.
  • Ghosts will not deal/take damage, show being on fire, make any sound or push/be pushed by any other mob.
  • Giving ghosts a rose (poppy) will make them ascent and leave the world with a nice firework blast.
  • Giving ghosts a Totem of Undying will flash them back into existance with full health. Also the using the totem required simulated special effects.
    • Green and yellow particles
    • A flash particle
    • Respawn message in your current language
    • Totem of undying usage sound is played

Known Issues
  • Optifine might struggle to render ghosts or not render them at all. One user reported updating to the latest snapshot of optifine resolved the issue.
  • This datapack causes all undead mobs (the ones that take damage when given instant health potion) to die if they get given a nametag.

Ray_Savage made a review of this datapack. Near the end he talks about having a ghost army of wolves, but ghosts don't do damage to anything. So even though the haunted cow gets red flashes and starts to flee, he does not take damage. Mobs might be haunted, but not hunted by your ghost army of wolves =)

skunkmunkee also made a review and discovered that ghost creepers can still blow up. I could go and fix this, but it seems fun to leave that in. A nametag for a single invisible creeper is kinda expensive anyways.

Did you make a review of any of my datapacks? Send me a DM!

Install Instructions
This is a datapack, it can easily be used in any world or server without any difficulties.
Simply drop the downloaded zip file in the "datapacks" folder of your world save (<world>/datapacks).
Then open your world and do

In case the datapack doesn't automatically get enabled, run:
/datapack enable "file/[​datapack folder name]"

I encountered a bug! What do I do now?

I test all my creations, but bugs happen no matter how long you test something. Whenever someone experiences a bug, I do my best to fix the issue. You can help me by providing any useful information. You can never give me enough information, but please send it in a DM instead of placing it in the comments. You can still place a one-liner in the comments stating the issue to make the community aware, but that alone isn't enough to help me fix the issue.
  • Checklist: Are you using the right version? Did you do /reload after dropping the datapack in? After /reload, does the datapack show up green in /datapack list?
  • What is the issue? Does the datapack not seem to be working at all or is there a specific feature you are having issues with?
  • What happened? Please give me all the steps needed to reproduce the issue. The faster I can experience it, the faster I can solve it.
  • What did you expect to happen instead? This helps me understand your point of view and determine if the issue described is actually the issue I need to fix. The bug you are experiencing could just be a side effect of something else that doesn't behave as expected.

1.16 Bug Fix : by Bertiecrafter 11/18/2020 2:11:09 pmNov 18th, 2020

With 1.16, the Owner tag I used to distinguish pets is now also used for many projectiles and a couple other things. A blacklist tag got added to prevent false positives, but if an out of place "........ died" message pops up in chat against all odds, let me know.

The data pack was made to support all kinds of pets, so in theory yes. But the data pack is quite old (1.16) so there is no guarantee it works in higher versions.
