This data pack adds a new boss monster; the Phantom Menace. The Menace is a larger than usual phantom, with a few tricks up its sleeve. The Menace will appear after a semi-random number of nights, if there are any other phantoms around, and will prevent you from sleeping when it is close to appearing.

You can fight it for rewards, or run from it. Escaping from it will allow you to sleep at night again, and delay its reappearance until another semi-random number of nights have passed. Killing it will give you some loot and experience points, as well as preventing phantom spawning except on full moons.

After you've killed the Menace, you can get phantoms to spawn every night again by renaming a firework "Menace" and using it. This will also cause the Menace to reappear eventually.

If you kill the Ender Dragon (after installing this data pack), every Menace you kill after that will drop an Elytra.

You can change how often the Menace appears by altering the maximum and minimum safe nights between appearances in the config file ("data\phantom_menace\functions\config.mcfunction") in the data pack zip file.

More information about data packs and how to use them can be found on the official Minecraft Wiki.

It should be compatible with any multiplayer sleep data pack or plugin.

loot is only a handfull of regular mob drops, so really only usefull for an easy way to get elytra without exploring the end

I'm open to suggestions; what sort of loot do you think the Menace should drop?

When I load this pack into a game, and do "/reload", no confirmation text comes up saying this data pack is active, however when I use "/datapack list enabled" it shows up as being active. Is there supposed to be no confirmation text or is this a glitch on my part?

Confirmation text is something some pack developers add manually. I have not added any confirmation text to any of my data packs, as I find such features to be annoying, and, as you say, there is the "/datapack list enabled" command that can tell you what packs are installed.
