Welcome to the first in the Survival Enhancement Project series!
This series adds or changes various aspects of Survival gameplay that I felt were lacking or underutilised. These changes have been made with balanced gameplay in mind while also keeping everything as "vanilla" as feasible.

SEP #1 Renewables focuses on correcting the existing blocks and items that are finite or unnecessarily difficult to obtain.
The current version is designed for Singleplayer Minecraft 1.19.2. Multiplayer is untested!!

Add the .zip file to ".minecraft\saves\<Name of Save File>\datapacks" folder. It is safe to add this datapack to an existing world and requires no initialising.


In game run: /function sep_1:uninstall. This just removes scoreboards.
Then delete datapack from ".minecraft\saves\<Name of Save File>\datapacks".

A quick suggestion, making that guardians, instead of getting struck by lighting, the entity gets in a certain condition to transform into a elder, like dropping a mending book on a guardian ( it will get wiser and it can repair itself, so living longer) and after that the guardian will wait 10 min to transform into a elder guardian

I like the idea of putting the guardians on a timer until they transform. Dropping an item could definitely be a way, not sure about Mending though. A guardian reading a book to become wiser is funny mental picture indeed. Perhaps throwing some kind of food item instead?

A couple other possibilities come to mind:
- Guardians that go close to a conduit get converted. Keeps within the theme of the sea.
- Hitting one with a spectral/tipped arrow. Not sure what effect would be good and I don't have a good justification for this one other than I basically never use these items.
