Required Resource Pack

Entirely a vanilla Minecraft Data Pack for Minecraft 1.20+

No longer overwrites vanilla loot tables. New items are now injected into existing loot.

Enables the crafting of ruby-encrusted diamond items, which renders the items indestructible, and enables the various tools to vein-mine logs and ores.

Allows Rubycraft items to be smithed into unbreakable Rubycraft netherite items!

In order to see the custom ruby items, you'll need to also install the accompanying resource pack (updated to v5.0 12Jan20).

How does one acquire rubies, you may ask? Rubies are found in various loots within chests, which encourages exploration to collect the rare rubies! Loot tables also have the luck factor enabled on them, so not just fishing has luck.

The rubies are modeled after the old-school ruby texture from Minecraft's alpha and beta days. Emeralds were originally planned to be rubies, but the ruby was not implemented, yet the ruby texture lingered on in Minecraft as an unused texture for years. I've resurrected the long-lost ruby, and gave it some animation to boot.

If you enjoy this datapack, please give it some love with diamonds and favorites >^_^<

Hi, I can craft the armour, but I can't put it on. I was able to put on the helmet though after it mysteriously turned into a different ruby helmet with a different texture. Is this intentional, and i have to do something, or a bug?

Hey, awesome data pack! I have a few questions:
  1. Do the enchants on a tool remain after the conversion to ruby?
  2. You can enchant a ruby tool?
A suggestion: make ruby tools look different, like red, using the resource pack. If you want I can help you with the textures

1. No.
2. Yes

Your suggestion... already there... you must have missed the resource pack that makes the ruby items red.

A bit of an issue I'm having since running the datapack:

The datapack is great, and I used it on a single survival save for a while. However, recently I started playing in a separate minecraft version, with forge, so I can play with mods. I even have a separate game folder for the version, and I am not playing with Rubycraft in the world folder. Yet for some reason, even when I start entirely new worlds, "rubies" (which just show up for me as renamed command blocks of course) continue spawning in loot chests in dungeons and other such structures. I've looked through all the files in both my regular minecraft folder and my modded minecraft folder, through the save files and even carefully going through everything in NBT Explorer. I'm extremely confused, as it seems somehow the datapack modified core game files? It's only that singular aspect of the datapack remains also. Just the command blocks spawning in chests, there isn't any other remnants of the datapack behind.

So yeah, any idea what's going on and how I could fix this? :p

A data pack can’t modify core files. Somewhere you must be running one of my datapacks with loot tables in them. Look in all your datapack minecraft-folder loot tables.
