Hermitcraft Season 8 has just ended today, and I wanted to make a datapack as a tribute to the season, and what better way to do it then with the cousins of the big moon?

This datapack currently adds 3 new nighttime events, and one specifically as a reference to Hermitcrafts end. The moon events are listed below

  • Hightide Moon - Acts almost just like the Big Moon in Hermitcraft, 'appearing' to be sucking up blocks and players without actually griefing
  • Starlight Moon - Fills the air with glimmering light, and occassionally comets will rain down with some XP!
  • Blood Moon - Mobs during this night event will gain +50% more health, but their loots will be increased too!


/scoreboard players set moon_bloodmoon moon_count 1

/scoreboard players set moon_starlight moon_count 1
/scoreboard players set moon_hightide moon_count 1

Keep in mind it must be nighttime in game for these commands to actually manually start one of these night events. They will automatically end when it turns day.


Downloading a datapack is simple:

1. Open your minecraft's saves folder %AppData% > .minecraft > saves > yourworld
2. Drag the datapack zip into the datapacks folder in the selected world
3. Do not unzip it. Once its in the folder, type /reload in your game chat and the datapack should load!

This datapack will work on existing servers, just make sure you add the datapack in when your server is offline. I also highly recommend making a backup just in case!

Hope you like this pack! I know its alot smaller than what I usually do but I thought it would be nice to make some kinda tribute to this hermitcraft season. I might update this pack in the future with more moon events, who knows (;

For those asking for 1.19, good news! It's still compatible for 1.19.2.

A great extension! We loved it on our old 1.18.2 and miss it a lot on the 1.19.2 server. We would love to see it again!

How did you get those effects for the starlight moon? They look so good!

Gorgeous datapack! Nice work. Would it be possible to make the moon look red during the blood moon?

Hi! Could you possibly provide me with some information of how to add effects to the hightide moon? Im trying to add jump boost 2-3 and random levitation.

Is there a way to make it pick up different blocks when the hightide moon happens?
