                    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, as well as whether it drops an elytra when killed by a player who has killed the Ender Dragon, in the config file ("data\phantom_menace\functions\config.mcfunction") in the data pack zip file.

                    Hi. I'm having this issue in my world. I can't sleep since the 3-4 night and the phantom menace is configured to spawn in between night 24-32 I think. What can I do? iit's a little bit anoying. I'm playing with Fabric 1.16.4. Or how can I disable the insomnia meanwhile? Thanks

                    Sorry, I can't support modded environments. Have you tried it on a vanilla server instead?

                    Not yet. I'm planning to add this to a future Fabric server, but maybe in midgame to prevent the insomnia from the beggining :s

                    So you're saying the phantom menace still spawns correctly after the few days you're unable to sleep, but that the first appearance on your server is earlier than you'd like?

                    No. I'm not playing in a server at the moment, but I want to use your data pack in a future 1.17 modded server. My problem is, the Phantom Menace is configured to make its first appearance between night 24-31, but I have insomnia since day 3, so I'm forced to be playing all the time because I can't sleep, I can't skip the night and makes it a little bit tedious to play. I don't know if there's a command to disable or configure insomnia.

                    I still love your datapack btw ♥

                    I've made some changes and tested them in a new world, and I wasn't prevented from sleeping until the safe period had expired (some 24 days later). Please try out the latest release and let me know if it fixes the problem you've been encountering.

                    Ah okay, now I understand. Thanks for explaining it to me, I'll look into fixing it. Just a note though; this data pack hasn't been updated to 1.17 yet, so there's no guarantee it'll work correctly outside it's listed compatible versions.

                    You could reskin the boss with Optifine installed, but I'm not sure if the data pack would work as intended if it was on a modded instance of Minecraft. Sadly, there's no easy way to reskin individual mobs with data packs or resource packs in Java yet.

                    Is the message that prevents you from sleeping something related to a "Sinister night" by any chance?
                    I have several data packs in a 2-person server and I've had that message appear a lot of times, but nor the Menace nor regular Phantoms seem to appear

                    Also, what is the output of the command /gamerule doInsomnia

                    Sorry for the late response. It's Vanilla 1.16.1, and it says doInsomnia is set to true.
                    I did summon the Menace manually and there hasn't been a single sinister night since we beat it. Haven't launched the firework to reactivate the menace yet.

                    Edit: Btw the only other datapack that I have that affects Phantoms is VanillaTweaks' bigger phantoms v1.1.0.

                    Hey, I tried putting the tomes on an item, and it doesn't let you add both enchantments. Don't know how to fix that, but maybe it could drop an item with both the enchantments instead?

                    Tetrajak
                    Minecraft is hardcoded to prevent incompatible enchantments from being applied from books to items. The tomes are meant as curiosities, more than having a practical use, however, you can still use them to enchant, and there are two versions of each one such that you can still get both enchantments from the Menace (e.g. one book with Mending, Infinity, and another with Infinity, Mending)

                    Is the head and banner supposed to be a 100% drop? Cause I killed it twice and only got the tomb and potion. Also maybe make it drop a phantom egg, the reason could be because its the mother of all phantoms.

                    Currently it drops a set of banners and a head, so you can mount it as a trophy on your wall, a long duration night vision potion, some phantom membrane, and the conditional elytra mentioned in the description. I'm open to suggestions though; what do you think it should drop?

                    Something like "Forbidden tome" could be intresting (enchanted book with two uncompatible enchantments, with one of them being on max level, like fire protection 4 and protection 2 etc.) though it should be very rare

                    I'm using it on my realm and there have been three nights so far where it won't let us sleep because of something sinister, but the phantom menace hasn't appeared yet. Is this intentional, or am I just missing something?

                    That is indeed intentional. It won't let you sleep until a naturally spawned phantom has been converted into a menace, which is usually 3 nights if you're sleeping every night.

                    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.
