Welcome to the next True Survival core datapack!

REM sleep is an attempt to rebalance the bed in Minecraft! Beds are incredibly OP, being able to skip the night and all danger for only 3 wool and 3 wood. This connects the bed to other mechanics like hunger without being too oppressive or rewarding.

- Sleeping will give you absorption for 3 minutes!
- Sleeping will give you a potent hunger effect upon waking up to day!
- Integrated to include multiplayer sleep!

The hunger effect will be more detrimental depending on the kind of food you're using. If you're living on steak, and eat right before bed, you likely won't lose any hunger points at all. If you're living day to day on raw potatoes, you will take a large chunk of hunger damage. This is meant to reward the player for upgrading and farming better kinds of foods like baked potatoes, cooked beef, or golden carrots, while still adding a cost for using the bed!

Finally someone who sees the problem that beds are too good and takes off nearly every single survival aspect of the game

Should sleeping also restore some amount of health, since wounds would logically heal while you are resting? Maybe 4 hearts (8 health) through an instant healing II effect applied? This would also play into another reason why you get the hunger effect, as it would cost hunger to heal yourself.

Additionally, this also shouldn't invalidate the campfire healing of the core True Survival pack as you can only use beds once per night and only in the overworld. I imagine it would mostly be used while resting at your overworld base between adventures or when taking the risk of exploring while bringing a bed with you to reset the time at the sacrifice of your spawn point (unless you're playing in hardcore mode).

Glad you like the pack!

I have considered giving regen/instant health from the sleeping, but in the end I decided not to. I felt it did in fact invalidate the campfire. Potion effects in survival minecraft are a rare occurrence. I didn't want to duplicate similar effects that would make you use one over the other especially with such core tools like the bed and the what I made the campfire into. While, yes, the campfire would still be the primary tool to heal, the feeling of the campfire would be less special.

Eh, I suppose that's fair. It is your pack after all. And it does already give the absorption effect instead.

I suppose if you ever did change your mind it would have to be something smaller like a 2 heart instant health 1 effect, that way the effect was split between a tiny heal from resting and the "well rested" absorption effect to make it still useful to those who are sleeping at full health.

Anyway, thank you for responding and what you're doing with these packs!
