Soul Orbs is a data pack that adds an item to capture mobs and summon them back anywhere you want.
Captured mobs will display the information about them on the item, hidden information included.
It also adds many advancements that rewards the player with various items and experience.

1) Choose your world in game > Edit > Open World Folder
2) Open datapacks folder in the opened window.
3) Copy the downloaded data pack file (soul-orbs-v1-10.zip) into this folder.
4) Join the world and run /reload command.
5) Enjoy!

• Current version is for Minecraft 1.19. For previous versions, see Older Versions section below.

• It is recommended to use the data pack with the attached resource pack. The data pack will still work without the resource pack. However, the items added by the data pack will look different from what it is supposed to.

How to obtain Soul Orb
1) Place down 5 redstone blocks as shown as in the video below.
2) Put water at the center of the blocks.
3) Throw an Eye of Ender into the water to convert into Soul Orb.

How to use Soul Orb
• Simply right click with an empty Soul Orb while looking at the mob you want to capture.
• Right click again to release. Releasing a mob will break the orb by default.

• If you can't capture a mob because of right click interaction, step back few blocks and try again. Orb capture distance is farther than player reach range.

You cannot change the base item. The game needs to check player right click in some way.

You cannot capture a player and summon them back. Players are not regular entities, they are "players".

It does not work with modded mobs, but you can make them work by adding them manually if you have basic data pack knowledge.
