This isn't a boss battle. It's a rivalry. The Pig King is here.
This datapack adds a new hostile to your world: The Pig King. You will meet anarchy.

To start the mayhem, kill a pig (or pig-like monster) and make sure you've slept in a bed at night.
Then, prepare yourself for his arrival when you least expect it. Good luck. 😈

Extended Information
The Pig King is a scaling mob that seeks to emulate intense vanilla PVP combat.

- begins stalking player(s) responsible for killing any pig (or pig-like) mobs
- equips according to current player(s) base-game advancement progression
- rapidly change equipment to assault the player in close or ranged combat
- consumes items and food to gain an edge and replenish health while fighting
- breaks doors and trapdoors impeding movement to the targetted player
- revives undead pig-likes, rallies wild wolves, and stuns iron golems
- never really dies, even if you beat him, he'll be back again sooner or later
- hides (despawns) and prepares for another ambush when player(s) exit range
- takes 10 - 20 minutes to spawn when he first notices a player or if defeated
- takes between 30 minutes and 2 hours to respawn if he defeats you
you'll need to sleep in a bed first, too (he's not that much of a monster)
† will equip according to the player he's spawned at

† you can hit stunned golems to wake them up when The Pig King isn't around

The Pig King doesn't care about your wealth or wares, all he wants is respect.

- The Pig King is not a boss and will consistently appear and fight a player.
- Just like players in the game, he will continue to respawn.
- He will not interact with anyone who hasn't killed a pig-like mob.
- He will only spawn on overworld animal mobs or piglins
- Doing the 'atonement' ritual will clean the player until they kill another pig

Optional Resources!
The resource packs for Techno Crowns and Pig Style Piglins have been consolidated into a single pack for this release, but their usage is completely optional.

Installation is easy!
Just drag and drop the datapack zip file into your world's datapacks folder.
An uninstall function is also supplied
/function _tpk:uninstall
Optimized for servers!
This datapack was designed to minimally affect overall game/server performance.
All clients observe the same behavior on servers using GeyserMC.

For hosts using PaperMC, make sure to enable in the paper-world-defaults.yml file
allow-non-player-entities-on-scoreboards: true

For Technoblade
I'd actually been thinking of doing something like this for a little while now. I started watching Technoblade after his iconic and unforgettable premiere on Minecraft Monday. The idea slowly took shape of bringing his likeness into the game: a chaotic neutral character that meets you on equal terms and still manages to best you.

Well, that and subtle hints of anarchy.

This one's for you, "Dave." Rest easy, Pig King.

Bug fixes, advancements, and more : by deeveesss 08/03/2022 12:28:53 amAug 3rd

  • Major Changes: Added more advancements and a small "atonement" ritual. Modularized and broke down text from The Pig King to add variation to messages later (also useful for translation) under the "snark" functions folder
  • Refined spawn targetting and removed target mob predicate.
  • Fixed cooldown bug when The Pig King kills players and no more qualified players are in range (now takes longer as intended to respawn)
There were a good bit of refactors and additions made with this release. You can check out the changes on GitHub.

Is there any way you can make it so the pack works with the essentials plugin?

After some testing it seems that Essentials isn't interfering with the datapack, but rather the way Spigot/Paper itself handles loot generation (which is used to seed RNG values at spawn and to determine spawn times). I'll implement a fix tonight that uses a different source for randomness.

8 hours later: Tada! Updated and tested working on Spigot and Paper in current release. No observed issues with EssentialsX plugins.

It is a good MOD. But Someone published your MOD without your permission:

猪王 - Technoblade 致敬 (The Pig King - A Technoblade Tribute)

is that lawful?

It looks like that user translated the body of text for my Pig King datapack and included links to the source material, so it's fine. Thanks for looking out, though! (As a small side note, my datapacks are distributed under the Creative Commons ShareAlike license, so as long as people give credit to the source material they're free to re-use it in any way they want)

I noticed that the poster seemed to have some translation issues with some of the text; they're more than welcome to message me if they'd like to clear up the language on it, and I appreciate them taking the time to translate it for the Chinese MC community.
