What is HeartCore?

HeartCore is a multiplayer-friendly semi-hardcore datapack designed to provide a fair experience between Hard and Hardcore difficulties. In HeartCore, each player has three lives, and lose 4 hearts with each life lost. However, by crafting an advanced golden apple referred to as a 'HeartCore', a player can regain a lost life. For recipes of each of the stages of a HeartCore, any player can use the /trigger info command in game. Players are set into spectator upon their third, and final, death.

To reset someone's lives, an operator can use the command: /scoreboard players set [​username] hardcore_deaths -1
Crafting Recipes
For item recipes in the pack, visit this link:



place a copy of HeartCore_datapack.zip into the datapacks folder in your world, and place a copy of HeartCore_textures.zip in your resource packs folder and enable it.

If you are using this on a server, make sure the resource-pack line in server.properties looks like this:


Additionally on servers, make sure HeartCore_datapack.zip is enabled by going in game on your server and typing /datapack enable "HeartCore_datapack.zip"

How did you use custom items in recipes?

Essentially, I have an invisible advancement that will empty your inventory of debug sticks and gives you the item. It is rewarded when you make the recipe, so that I can essentially run a mcfunction file whenever a user crafts a recipe.

Feel free to reuse any of my code in a datapack of your own if you want to!

Thanks for the compliment! I agree, it's not the most original datapack. I made this for an SMP I'm running at first, but thought I might as well put it online if anyone ever wanted it. I hope you don't mind. :D

Ehh if I'm being honest with myself, I'm just unhappy with the algorithm. All the attention goes to people who spam the site with low-effort tripe – not you, to be clear.

I, on the other hand, have worked hard on my data pack for two years now, but unless I find an excuse to update it (not easy given how simple it is) I get no attention from the algorithm. So it always stings a little to see similar data packs get free visibility just because they are new

Jealousy isn't any good for a person, though. Sucks to suck I guess! Have a good one

Man, that really does suck. If I ever get a chance, I'll be sure to recommend your datapack.
