Stream Status

This is a basic minecraft datapack, allowing players to indicate if they are recording or not. It also updates based on if a player is AFK or not. As another feature, it displays coloured names based on which dimension the player is in.

Use the command `/trigger recording` for the red dot, and `/trigger afk` for the gray dot. Note that the AFK dot will appear automatically after 5 minutes of no activity.


Stream Status Minecraft Data Pack

Please note that this datapack uses teams to allocate status. If you wish to use other teams, you will need to temporarily remove this datapack since minecraft currently only allows one team per player.

Installation / Removal
To install the datapack, simply drag the downloaded zip file into the datapack folder of your world.

To uninstall, type /function stream_status:uninstall. This will remove all teams, scoreboard values, and tags related to the datapack. Then remove the zip file from the datapacks folder and reload the world.

Check out my GitHub page BVengo/stream-status for other datapack versions.

1.19 v1.1 : by BVengo 07/30/2022 3:38:33 amJul 30th, 2022

This is an overhaul of the mod because I wanted to simplify its usage and give it more of a sleek look.
  • Beforehand you could set yourself as recording, available, unavailable. However, so many options made it a bit confusing to use. Now, there is only a recording or afk option.
  • The status is displayed as a dot beside the player name (instead of the name colour or ugly [AFK] prefix)
  • Name colours are now based on the dimension the player is in.

Please note that this datapack is built specifically for my server PandaCraft, so I apologise if these changes negatively impacts anyone.

I'm afraid not. I may consider adding a function for that in the future, however I won't make any promises since this datapack is primarily set up for my server needs (and I have other projects I'm presently focused on).

Hi there, glad you enjoy the pack! Sorry about the late response, I've been pretty busy lately.

Although I'd love to cater for everyone, unfortunately I can't implement this feature into the datapack. It's been set up specifically for my server and so any changes have to be additions rather than changes to existing functionality.

Sorry for the inconvenience!

You know How to connect this datapack with plugin TAB by Neznamy? (white nicknames in tab instead of custom ones)

Unfortunately not. If this datapack doesn't work for the non-custom names, then I suspect that the plugin either uses teams itself, or visually overrides datapacks anyway.

It'd take quite a bit of effort to set up a server with the TAB plugin myself just to work out compatibility issues, and last I saw it isn't even free anymore :)

Hello, I have such a dilemma, is it possible to somehow remove the trigger notifications ?.
When I activate the trigger for writing, in addition to the datapack text (it doesn’t bother me), the white command itself from the console bothers me

Unfortunately not - that's a built in part of Minecraft. I wish it were possible too!

You can disable ALL command output with the gamerule sendCommandFeedback, but it's rare that anyone actually wants that.

Hi, I installed your datapack, I turn it on, everything seems to work, writes that the recording starts, etc., but there is no recording point and afc. And also, the color does not change when you enter another world, what could be the problem?

For some reason, now the color of the name does not sell, although all plugins and datapacks are turned off.

I dont even have biome locations displayed on my server. I write /locate structure anceint _city - (similarity) and nothing happens when I enter, what could be the problem?

Hi there,

Below are some various things that could be causing your issues.

Datapack Interference
The datapack uses teams to allocate names and the dot suffixes. Is there another datapack or mod that you're using which also uses teams that may interfere with it? If not, continue on through my long reply :)

Something to also note: if you disable this datapack without doing the proper uninstall, then you'll still be on one of the teams that the datapack created (hence your name colour sticking after turning off plugins and datapacks).

I would recommend trying to reinstall the datapack in case you have an old or broken version. Use the following steps, because not uninstalling it properly will mean any current issues you have will remain.

1. Re-enable the datapack and then uninstall it properly using /function stream_status:uninstall
2. Log out, delete the datapack from your datapack folders, and replace it with the latest version.
3. Log back in and it should be fixed.

Language Issues
I haven't tested this datapack with languages other than English - US. If your team colours are working after reinstalling but you still don't see the symbols, then that implies that the ● symbol isn't actually in the character set of your selected language.

To change the symbols used, they can be adjusted in the datapack file /data/stream_status/functions/load.mcfunction. You'll see a lot of lines with team modify <team> prefix [...] - just change all occurrences of ● to the symbol or text that you want.

Biome / Locate Issues
This particular issue can't have anything to do with my datapack at all so I'll make a (hopefully) helpful query but I won't be continuing to assist with the problem. Are you sure you're on 1.19+ (or 1.18+ if using the older version)? Ancient cities were only added in the latest version of minecraft, and similarly /locate was only just changed to start working for biomes. In earlier versions, /locatebiome was used.

I hope you manage to sort out your problems!
