I'll jump straight into the point, this data pack tweaks some combat mechanics, and adds some custom weapons!

Armour Debufs
Most high-grade armour sets make you a bit slower.
  • Iron Armour gives -5% speed per piece
  • Diamond Armour gives -4% speed per piece
  • Golden Armour gives -6% speed per piece
  • Netherite Armour gives -6% speed per piece

Chainmail armour is the highest-grade armour without debufs

Chainmail Armour Crafting
Chainmail armour can now be crafted with a combination of chains and iron nuggets. The exact recipes are unlocked when the player obtains chains

A new kind of weapon! Available in iron, golden, diamond, and netherite variants! This is a very slow weapon, but is stronger than an axe (unenchanted netherite warhammers deal 12 damage)

The crafting recipe for a warhammer is basically a cross between an axe and a pickaxe. Netherite warhammers are created by upgrading diamond warhammers (put the smithing output in the hotbar to update it)

Warhammers can get all the enchantments that a sword can, and have another unique enchantment (elaborated on later)

Warhammers also have a special ability - Attacking something with a warhammer will 'pierce' its armour, meaning that for the next 5 seconds, the target will only have 50% of its armour points. This also works on players.

Another new weapon, the shortsword is very fast but also very weak. The crafting shape is 1 material above 1 stick (like a shortened sword shape). Netherite shortswords can be obtained by upgrading diamond ones.

New Enchantments
There is currently 1 new enchantment:


Application -
To get on a book with bludgeoning, throw a block of obsidian and a book above an enchantment table while level 30 or higher. To upgrade a book to level 2, throw the level 1 book above an enchantment table and throw a block of obsidian on it while level 30 or higher. To apply on warhammer, hold the book in your offhand and the warhammer in mainhand. Then, update your inventory (by moving around any of the items in your inventory). Important - Once a warhammer is given Bludgeoning I, it cannot be upgraded to level 2 or removed.

Usage - When you strike with a warhammer that has bludgeoning, it will result in a powerful attack that deals splash damage and stuns mobs in the area of effect, giving slowness and nausea for a short while. This ability has a 10 second cooldown (attacking before the cooldown ends does not affect the cooldown}. However, this will also hurt the user a bit.

I might do this in the next update, but I might not.

I didn't add them because it doesn't really make sense to make specialized weapons out of stone, and I had plans to overhaul smithing or weapon crafting.

Planned Feature Addition - Crouch-Abilities
Crouching will activate abilities depending on the weapon in your mainhand - this is intended to add more variety and strategy to combat. Each weapon's ability is designed to enhance the strengths of the weapon. Features will probably be added the coming weekend.

Shortsword - Targeted Hits
for the chinks in the opponent's armour - Reduces attack damage, but
has a chance to deal extra damage which will ignore armour (does not
ignore the Protection enchantment)

Sword - Parrying
incoming attacks - Makes attacks deal no damage (can still deal
knockback) but also gives armour, armour toughness and knockback
resistance bonus

Axe - Heavy Strike
the axe for a powerful blow - Charges a Heavy Strike attack (after
fully charged it depletes similarly to horse jump bar), which heavily
increases attack damage

Warhammer - Armour Crushing
for the opponent's armour to crush it - Reduces attack damage, but
deals extra damage to the opponent's armour (ignoring the Unbreaking

I didnt understand how to apply bludgeoning to the warhammer....i've tried to drop my random item and pick it up while holding warhammer and enchanted book on my offhand, then i move my other item using "E" button. Maybe showcase it and give tutorial?

Riiiight it's very confusing lol

I don't make videos tho

Did you manage to get the enchanted book?

Once you get the book, hold it in your offhand and warhammer in mainhand, then repeatedly switch the offhand and mainhand slots (I think the default key is 'f'?)

(i'll change the application method next weekend)

Ahh i see, i tought i must drop any item in my inventory. Yes, i got the enchanted book with no problem with that method

By the way, its good and simple datapack but change my combat experience. And can i change a bit the shortsword? I want to edit the texture for more recognizeable and change the attack speed for spam clicking. Its for multiplayer with my friends and my single player world. I will not reupload this without you permission

Sorry for my bad english, its not my native languange
Thank you so much, keep it up and have a nice day sir!
