This datapack adds shooting stars into Minecraft!

Every time you go near a shooting star, you will get 5 experience levels, so it just adds a bit of extra content!

The shooting stars have a chance to spawn on a player every so often, so just be patient!

Or if you want to summon it with a command: scoreboard players set @a hazz.events.timer 23999

(If you are wondering, the shooting stars look like a ball of white particles!)

Please Enjoy!

Got a video of what it looks like? I am trying to find a BOTW-like shooting star effect that can only happen at night, has a horizontal arc (like how thrown snowballs or thrown enderpearls have) rather than just dropping straight down like a rock, and maybe have some reward for going to them if they crash land.

The reason I want a mod like that is because I'm looking to make the night sky more interesting to look at and to give players a reason to not skip the night/reward them more for braving the night. This datapack seems the closest to what I am after, but if doesn't have a horizontal arc, it might fail in the purpose I need it for (to make the night look pretty and such).

Update: yup, nope, tested it out; sorry but not what I was looking for, thanks anyways

Was looking for something more like this where its something you can see happening in the distance: https://www.reddit.com/r/MinecraftCommands/comments/u8ximl/my_magic_datapack_is_going_well_falling_stars/ but that one is tied to a whole magic datapack rather than just be a shooting star alone.

could there be a little sound effect thrown in there to let you know a star is falling. Love the utilization of particles looks great.

So is the event per player or is it a general world timer based event? I’m also learning to make datapacks so I’m just trying to understand how it works

i cant 100% remember, but im 99% sure its world timer based. it works by having a dummy scoreboard go up by 1 every tick, and once it reaches 24000 it chooses a random player and summons a shooting star on them :)
