"On that day in 1961, Russian cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin became the first human in space,
making a 108-minute orbital flight in his Vostok 1 spacecraft."

"One small step for [​a] man, one giant leap for mankind." ~ Neil Armstrong

Humanity has always dreamed of traversing the universe in search of unknown planets and moons. And now, this is to some extent possible in vanilla Minecraft! I present to you my datapack:

"The Expansion"

The Expansion adds 8 new space dimensions(with more being added in the future):
- Space
- The Moon
- Mars
- Venus
- Mercury
- The Asteroid Belt
- Jupiter
- Europa

... and a whole load of other features!

Getting started:
Throw a book on top of a smithing table to obtain the "Guide to Space Travel". This guide will explain everything else.

Other Information:
- The datapack is multiplayer compatible.
- That being said, the datapack doesn't work on Spigot/Paper and Minecraft Realms because it utilizes the 'experimental' custom dimension features!!!
- The datapack is only compatible with 1.17.

- Keep in mind that this datapack in in beta, some bugs may arise and some features may not be finished.

Don't forget to download and enable the resource pack!
CreditTo my friend Quercus for designing and building the majority of the structures, to WilliamWythers for creating Europa, to Tristan_Arthur for building some structures, to my friends for helping me with loot tables, to Galacticraft for being an inspiration.

That was a bug in a previous version. Please download the newest version ;)
(swapping the wings in the crafting also works(I am dumb) but I recommend downloading the newest version anyway since it has some more fixes)

San Holo is found in the Millennim Falcon on The Moon. The Falcon is quite a rare structure because it only generates in moon craters. The craters are surrounded by crater edges and are deeper and flatter than the normal terrain of The Moon.

A tip: Use the Moon Buggy to search for the Millennium Falcon. The buggy is very fast and provides oxygen.
If you are still unable to find it you can run the command '/locate village' while on the moon. This will show you the location of the nearest Millennium Falcon.

Good luck!

Most likely not in the near future, if even ever. The gas giants are basically empty worlds with a lot of fog, so adding multiple of them wouldn't really add a lot of content besides possible structures. I would rather spend my time on other new mechanics and/or items. I do want to add Pluto and some more moons!
