                    Seasons for Survival Minecraft

                    The 4 Seasons:
                    With inspiration from Don't Starve, the seasons are recreated and will cycle naturally every 20 days (which makes for a 80 days year), each with their own specificity:
                    • Autumn/Fall: The most calm season of the four. Nothing special really happens to give you time to prepare for the next ones. Leaves fall from trees, the temperature only gets a little cold during the night, and no real change to the environment happens. Rain may start to fall, but you can protect yourself from it with a leather helmet.​
                    • Winter: The cold season, and the first one where there is a threat to your health: the temperature drops low enough for you to feel the effects, and even more during the night. Snow is constantly falling, covering the world in a nice white coat, as water freezes and small flowers disappear to protect themselves. Skeletons outside of caves will become a rare sight as they will be replaced by Strays under the effect of the cold. All crops will stop to grow due to the rough conditions. A blizzard may start causing snow to pile up, so beware of that for the duration of the season!​
                    • Spring: Another quite calm season. The temperature is a little high and may lead you to be careful while transporting flammable items in your inventory. Rain will fall more often, as well as thunderstorms will happen for the first time, and flowers will bloom back out where the sunlight can touch a patch of grass. And flowers won't be the only ones to bloom, as everything will grow in average twice as fast during this season compared to Autumn!​
                    • Summer: The other extreme season, this time with the heat, but still with a threat to your health if you are not careful. The heat will stay during the night, although not as prominent. Zombies outside of caves will transform into Husks under the heat. Heatwaves may happen, where the temperature skyrockets once again and the grass starts to smolder back to dirt, that may even become sterile. Wildfires will appear but will hopefully be put out by the important thunderstorm that follows, during which lightning will strike quite often, before returning to the usual clear weather.​

                    Temperature and Wetness:
                    Two new mechanics have been added with this datapack: temperature and wetness.
                    • Temperature: It is what you expect. Keep it around the green and everything will be fine. The UI will show you your current feeling of temperature (rather coarse) as well as your feeling of heat (the change of temperature, again rather coarse). Hiding in a cave (below y = 40) will protect you from the ambient heat that changes with the seasons, but only in the Overworld.
                    • Wetness: It's quite a side mechanic. It will increase as you expect, while standing under rain without protection or staying underwater too long. It will cool you down quite fast if you're not careful, and may even result in having your tools slip out of your own hands.
                    Dimensions:
                    Of course, the other dimensions aren't set aside. They are not affected by seasons, but that doesn't mean they have their own quirks.
                    • The Nether: It's really hot in there. So hot in fact that your temperature will increase around twice as fast as in the Overworld, and that's ignoring the melting pools of lava and pockets of glowstone and magma blocks everywhere. Better bring some ice with you if you don't want to be burned to a crisp by just standing there. Be also wary that the extreme heat can also pass through the portal.
                    • The End: Pretty much the same deal, except it's really cold. The void isn't forgiving and will turn you to ice while fighting the Dragon if you do not pay attention to your feeling. And again, this extreme cold can pass through the portal.
                    Side Notes:
                    A huge thanks again to the Phoenix SC and Datapack Center communities who gave me ideas to add to this project. Feel free to send me feedback on how I could improve this project or for new ideas to add.
                    • This Datapack is in theory multiplayer-compatible, although no testing has been realized to ensure either the functionality or the performance. The MSPT (ms per tick, the time it takes for the game to calculate a game tick, should generally be under 50 ms for 20 ticks a second) was increased by 10 to 15 ms during testing and optimization is again a top priority.
                    • There is a lot to this datapack: interactions with items, armors, blocks, mechanics, etc... and it's all up to you to discover them! If you want to, I'll add a list of all interactions currently in the project on a separate file for those who like to know how everything works exactly.
                    • There is now an option menu: to access it, simply run the /function seasons:options command. Don't forget to click [​Done] once you are finished!

                    Download Link:
                    You may have noticed that the download link redirects to The Datapack Center. The reason why I did this is because it allows me to update both of these sites at the same time, and because I find the update system there better.

                    4 Update Logs

                    2.0 Released: A Cool Place Update : 08/28/2020 10:57:16 amAug 28th

                    The datapack is now fully adapted to the new Nether and the 1.16 update. This does mean that it is now highly incompatible with 1.14 and 1.15 versions of the game, hence the new major version number. Bugs that were reported (death husk and strays despawning) have been fixed and full nether biomes compatibility has been implemented, with certain biomes being cooler and more habitable than others

                    How can I possibly turn off all that raining in autumn and spring and also get rid of the thunderstorms in summer? They burnt the whole server.

                    You can disable weather effects (meaning the weather affecting you, and wetness in general) in the Advanced Options. For disabling the weather cycle, however, nothing has been made for that yet

                    Hello,
                    I have a quick question. When I load up the world with the datapack installed, nothing happens. All I have is a temperature meter.. Is there any way to fix this, or do I have to wait a long time for something to happen? Or just what season does it spawn you in in the first place? Oh, and also, I keep getting gunpowder in my inventory.. How do I fix this? Oh! and one more thing! How do I use the calendar?

                    If you have the temperature meter, then it's working
                    You start in Autumn (leaves are falling from trees)
                    Gunpowder represent ashes dropped by flammable objects that burn in your inventory when you're too hot
                    To use the calendar, simply place it inside an item frame

                    The only problem is that it rains and storms far too much during spring and that's not customizable.

                    Hi, I created an account just to say i really love this datapack it just makes survival minecraft that much more interesting and difficult, i like how i normally get to full iron in the first day but with this datapack, i only got there after 10 days or so (mostly because I didnt know about the leather cap and froze to death at night and rain).
                    One thing u could perhaps change even though its not a big deal is how easily u freeze to death, maybe nerf that a bit.
                    But overall super awesome, this datapack is sooo underrated!

                    So this looks amazing but for some reason when I download it and put it into the datapack folder it will not work. I even go to type in ./function seasons:options into the chat and nothing. It says an unnatural function and I'm even on version 1.6, If you could help that would be amazing!

                    That's honestly really weird, I don't know what may be causing that since the majority seems to have no problems :/
                    Try and enable the console in the launcher settings (they are called logs), and try to look for errors that may be the cause of the datapack not loading

                    There is small bug: MC version: 1.16.3.
                    When there is a snow on Trees, leaves wont fall :(

                    If you sleep, it does not calculate correct days, e.g If there is 3 days till next season, if you sleep, there will be still 3 days

                    I just remembered something: in the options, you can reduce the weather multiplication. This will decrease the amount of snow that is generated as well as other block-based season effects, like flower blooming, ice forming, etc... Decreasing it below 1 won't turn them off

                    Snow will not melt in cold biomes, such as mountains or taigas

                    I have this issue that only happens when i have the seasons datapack enabled, basically my character will randomly drop items in my hotbar. I don't know how this happens, I've done everything to fix it but I've been able to solo out the issue in only occurring when the datapack is enabled. Any help? Its unusable because i drop whatever I'm holding all the time at random points. Thanks.

                    It's a feature, it happens when your wetness is really high, basically your tools slip out of your hands because of the water
                    You can turn off wetness in the advanced options by doing /functions seasons:options and clicking on Advanced Options ^^

                    Hey Codex, I'm trying to make a Datapack Modpack and I really like your pack but I also want to use Climate and Temperature because it adds biome relative temperature. Do you know if these two packs would work together? It looks discontinued so if it wouldn't work, it would be cool if you could add an update that has this feature.


                    Your pack seems to be geared towards gameplay in the plains biome (and the like) but know in a dessert seems kinda weird. (side note: I haven't played with the pack for the 6 hours required to get to winter season so maybe snow isn't a thing in the desert.)


                    Thank you for making such a great pack and i look forward to seeing what else you have in store for us.

                    EDIT: I just thought of another suggestion, in the options function, allow the player to set where the temperature is shown. I have some data packs that also use the subtitles so maybe giving the option to show as a boss bar?

                    The boss bar idea was made into a real thing by someone else for an older version, so I'll probably update it for the 1.16.
                    It is highly unlikely that my datapack would work in tandem with that other one, as they were developed by two different persons and I have used conventions to specifically avoid those kinds of collisions

                    Biome-based temperature already is a feature in this pack, if you go in a desert you'll heat up regardless of season temperature, and vice versa in taigas or mountains ^^
                    As for using subtitles, that most likely requires a language pack, which is something I'm not used to for the time being

                    Hi! Seriously, just awesome datapack! You did a very great job on it, but I still have question about temperature system... Is there any chance to create system that counts heat in the buildings? 3-4 ovens should be able to make house warm, but I still have to stand right next to them, that's the thing... You probably use armor stands for a lot of stuff, so it could be laggy, but if you could implement heat spreading system, that could be nice! Also, can you add hot breathing particles when it's winter and you under the sky?

                    Well, the problem with this kind of thing is fuzziness. What counts as a building? What counts as closed? What is too big? How much should it spread? All of that has to be strictly determined before putting it into code

                    And obviously, the second problem is performance, since that would require a lot of marker entities to determine the space it should be affecting, which at beast would cause intense lag when you place a heat-making block, and at worst would make that lag permanent
                    I got some suggestions on how to make a better heating system, and I'll be experimenting with a few things (namely raycasting around the player so that the "heat bubble" can be a bit larger and block sensitive)

                    As for the breathing particle, sure! I had the idea to implement them at some point but I didn't really come around to make them, so I'll see what I can do to replicate that without it obstructing your entire view

                    Cool, can't wait for new updates! Also, I heard a lot about how difficult to implement snow in all biomes, so your mod is already wonderful!

                    Did it happen on its own, or did it trigger when you tried to craft one of them?

                    On it's own, as soon as I load the datapack.

                    Do you have other datapacks installed? In particular, ones that interact with recipes? the way this works is that it detects when you get the recipe for either of the items through an advancement, so if another datapack is tampering with advancements, or with recipes, that can be the cause of the problem
