Redstone Barrel - A barrel which automatically catches fish for you!

8 pm EST - September 4th: Fixed a bug cause a redstone barrel returns back to a normal barrel if they get broken

This small Data Pack adds a redstone barrel which automatically catch fish for you! (It can also catch junks or treasures, too).
To craft a redstone barrel, you need a normal barrel in the center and 8 redstones around it.
To use a redstone barrel, place it in the water.

The speed of a redstone barrel depends on blocks around it.
It requires water interact with it to work.
It reaches the maximum speed if 4 blocks interact with it are water.
(Only count water in the same y level)

Before successfully catching a fish, the redstone barrel will display some bubbles particle around it. When it successfully catches the fish, it will play a sound like a normal fishing rod catches a fish.

Hope you have fun with this Data Pack :)

I orginally made this Data Pack works for Minecraft 1.14. However, I believe this Data Pack will still work in newer versions. The game might tell you this Data Pack is made for an older version but that's just because of the pack.mcmeta file, it won't affect at all.
CompatibilityMinecraft 1.14
toMinecraft 1.18

Hi! does this datapack insert fishing loot into a barrel or drop specific items into the barrel? I'm interested in using this pack alongside s pack that modifies fishing loot with the intent to have the new fishing loot appear in the barrel

Sorry for late reply, I was so busy these days
The data pack uses the minecraft:gameplay/fishing loot table, therefore you can change that loot table if you want!

Awesome datapack idea. My problem is I make the redstone barrel, and it works fine for a day or two, but then it just quits working altogether.

hmm that's a weird bug, I'd never seen that bug. Can you send me your map or can you make a video about this bug and send me a link?

I think that after a while the rod that he uses to fish breaks and that is why the barrel stops working
