Do you often wander around your Minecraft world, alone? Do you wish that you could have a pet Roomba with none of the functionality of an actual Roomba? Do you wish you had friends, but social interaction worries you and you can't force yourself to be outgoing?

What a coincidence, so do I, and I've found just the product for you. For the low low price of $0.00, you can fill that void in your heart with your very own SpazBot!

That's right, call now and you can own the critically acclaimed SpazBot, for free! SpazBot has received at least 25 fake internet points, but he's ready to receive your heart. Just look at these shining reviews!

"I mean, he doesn't really do much" -A Fool
"You did very good hunny" -My mom
" " -A mute guy that I met on the street (He was pretty cool)
"He's just an armor stand on top of an invisible wolf, though" - Someone who is technically correct
"Why are you writing this?" -Me
"Clever One, Ain't ya?" -Cthulu
"I like his little face" -My one friend

Call now and temporarily fill that void in your heart with a virtual robot that is incapable of love, but definitely capable of being loved.


I should probably actually explain what this datapack is :p
I was bored one day and I thought it'd be fun to make a little robot that follows you around. Jump cut to 6 hours later, and here he is! SpazBot! You install him just like you do for other datapacks: just unzip the downloaded file and then dump the folder inside into your datapacks folder and hit reload.

How to summon SpazBot
Type /function spazbot:give_spazbot to summon a player head. Just toss this on the ground and he'll spring to life after a couple of seconds.
The system only allows one SpazBot at a time, and he tames himself to the nearest player.


I might do more stuff with him, but for now, he's pretty much completed
I got the head from https://minecraft-heads.com/


Huh, this is the first project I've ever posted, I should post more of my stuff



EDIT:
Hey guys. Just so you know, Spazbot now works on 1.16! Wooh! The previous versions are available under the Alternate Download URL section

I've finally started work on a version 2! Expect big things in small, friend-sized packages
Creditu/Eredun and u/A_Wild_Noob_appeared for figured out how to tame a wolf to the nearest player with commands. They did good.

Update #1 : 10/31/2019 12:56:06 amOct 31st, 2019

Hey y'all, I made a new SpazBot datapack where the name has been changed to SpudzBot. I prefer SpazBot, but certain people might not like that name, so I threw together a datapack with a more g-rated name. Anyways, SpudzBot will be under the alternative downloads

Credit to user lumpenrose for the name and idea.

Spazbot also seems to have forgotten how to teleport, so this update fixes that too.


One last thing! Donate to #teamtrees! I'm a broke college student and I still was able to toss 20 bucks at 'em. What's your excuse?

I think so. From what I've heard about 1.15, it didn't change any commands.

Even if he broke, fear not friend, for if 1.15 breaks Spazbot, I shall fix him. He is my son

Hey this is a great pack and I've already had a lot of fun with it, it's nice having a cute bot buddy to bring on adventures! However, would you consider adding a command to locate Spaz/Spudz and/or display their coords? (I know you can easily summon them again if they disappear or "die" but I actually left the little dude at home and got lost (I couldn't just die to tp back, it's in a new world and I didn't set my spawn yet :())

Hmm, I think I could do that. I'm actually thinking about making a Spazbot 2.0 version, I'll look into adding this feature to it.

there it says that the spaz bot is just an armor stand in top of an invisible dog

does that mean the dog attacks mobs and can die?

so this explains absolutely nothing about the data pack. the only thing i can gather from your description is: it's a bot, it follows you around... is that literally it? it seems to be a running problem with posts of data packs (not explaining literally anything about it, i mean) people just kinda go: i made a data pack, i call it this, and yup that's it. nope not gonna tell you about it, but you should totally download it...

That's because that is literally it. He's a little follower. It's a small data pack that I made while working on larger projects.

Hey there! Sorry for the late reply, I got kinda burnt out about Minecraft and haven't been on in a while.
Rest assured, SpazBot does work on the latest version.

Usually, this error is given when he hasn't been installed correctly. My guess is that the data pack folder hasn't been unzipped but it could be any number of things. I've redone the installation directions so that it's easier to install for people who may be new to datapacks.

Usually, this error is given when he hasn't been installed correctly. My guess is that the data pack folder hasn't been unzipped but it could be any number of things. Since two separate people have had this issue, I've decided to redo the installation directions so that it's easier to install for people who may be new to datapacks.

Positives: Cool mod, friendly fellow who will help fight enemies when im recovering with my trusty mooshroom soup behind a corner.



negatives: has a slur as its name (spaz), and cannot change it's name to a more appropriate name. Would really prefer "Spudzbot" because the trail he leaves behind looks like scrubbing bubble spuds when he moves.



B mod



edit: He crashes the game when he tries to enter the nether

Hey man, I can see how people might not want to be walking around with a bot named SpazBot, so I quickly threw together a new datapack with the name SpudzBot.

Making his name customizable is probably doable but outside of my abilities at the moment, so this is the next best thing.

Anyways, here is the Spudzpack download link. Enjoy :D

Just commenting to say yes, good Sir/Madam. You should post many more stuffs. I enjoy the read (as I'm sure many others do).



Of course, I also enjoy spazzing out with SpazBot. I do have a request, though. Could there be a way to find or otherwise earn this imaginary companion (other than making the effort to imagine I did something to earn it in the first place)? I feel cheaty just summoning a friend. I want to do something of wide renown that makes SpazBot think (in the loosest sense of the word) "Yay, Player1. I choose YOU to fixate my everlasting fealty upon." Even just a simple thing like dungeon loot or a crafting recipe that uses a wither skull on top of a comparator. Preferably some kind of achievement reward. Just some way I can feel that I earned the companionship.



Only in this way can I ever fill the hole that was first bored into me to make room for countless childhood participation trophies which were then seared red-hot and molten by the relentless pounding of cold, hard rejection. Having SpazBot "like" me on command is just one more participation trophy to add to the painful, misshapen mass weighing me down where my heart ought to be.



Bring meaning to our broken existence, o' Minaro_. You are the chosen one.

Well, I gotta say I love this comment :D

I'm gonna add this to the list of things planned for SpazBot 2.0, right now he's more of a proof of concept
I'm thinking about making a custom dungeon where Spazzy is the reward when you beat it

Currently, I'm putting him in my new datapack, just because I can. After that's done, I'm gonna come back to Spazzy and make him better

This datapack is really fun to use!

Thanks for making it so when the SpazBot dies it drops the head on the ground so you can re-summon it!

Well, I can certainly give it a shot, but no guarantees. It's a bit outside of my skill range.

I'm currently working on a rather large project right now, so it'll have to wait until that's done.

It does work.

You have to do /function spazbot:give_spazbot

Then you have to drop the head on the ground and it should be summoned after a few seconds.
