This 1.16 datapack adds Potato blocks to the game!





How does the datapack work?

    - A Potato block is actually a retextured brown concrete powder.
    - To create a potato block, drop a stack of 64 potatoes onto the ground.
    - They will clump into a Potato block.

    - The Potato block has gravity like sand.
    - Potato blocks act like a real pile of potatoes by spreading out randomly. However this only occurs when a stack of potatoes clump.

    - When broken, it drops 64 potatoes.





    Frequently asked questions:

    - Why did you make this?
      For fun.

    - Do you have to store the Potato blocks in a silo?
      No, it just sounded cool.

    - Is this datapack laggy?
      Not at all. Well, maybe if you made a giant potato block pile 250 blocks tall and clumped a stack of potatoes at the top you might get a lag spike. I haven't tested this.

    - Since Potato blocks are just retextured brown concrete powder, can't you craft Potato blocks with the brown concrete powder recipe?
      Yeah, but this is just a fun little datapack so I don't think its a big issue.

    - Do the Potato blocks turn into brown concrete when contacting water?
      Yes they do. I might retexture brown concrete into rotten/wet potatoes.

    - Is this multiplayer compatible?
      Yes.




    How to download:

    - Download the .zip file
    - Drop the file into .minecraft/saves/YOUR_WORLD_NAME/datapacks
    - In the world, type /reload

    - Alternatively, you can add this datapack during world creation. If so, just move it in and you're all set!

      If you want to get the potatoes back, just mine it

      Yes, I think I can make it work with apples/carrots easily. Making the texture will be the hardest part.

      Love the idea! How about making the same thing but with other crops, like wheat or carrots?
