Check out TRUE SURVIVAL if you haven't already! It contains features like the Strider Jockey, reworked mobs, bosses, progression, and more!

This is a True Survival module. What is that?
True Survival is a comprehensive datapack containing many features like this datapack's and more. You can install True Survival modules like this one if you only want certain True Survival features instead of the complete True Survival experience.

Introducing the Strider Jockey!

The Strider Jockey is a unique wandering trader that spawns in the lava lakes of the Nether. He'll spawn riding a strider and will be waiting to give you a variety of unique trades that will assist you in your nether adventures.

(Much like my spelunker and voyager traders, the Strider Jockey uses other mobs as a piggyback for its spawning algorithm. After 50 striders spawn over lava, the 50th strider will be replaced with a jockey!)

This is the last of my wandering trader series but one of the first releases of mini datapacks pulled straight from True Survival Version 1.0!

Loved bumping into this guy. A bit rarer than the spelunker so when I came back with my loot to trade in he was long gone. Alas.

I don't know if anyone else has noticed this, but twice now I've died on a strider because a jockey spawns into my saddle and spatially displaces me(I die to falling through the world according to the game).

OMG! I know that's bad for both you, cause you lost items, and me cause i coded the dang thing, but i audibly laughed reading this. (thanks for letting me know, ill look into a fix)

Heh, ya know it wasn't amusing at the time, but after the fact it is pretty funny. Also, the second time was supposed to just be a test then I forgot it could happen and died, so really that one was on me. Great mutations of the wandering trader though, I love all three.

Is this compatible with the Vanilla Tweaks wandering trades?

Hmm it should be? This one spawns in all new traders separate from the spawning algorithm of the vanilla one. From what I understand, there should be no issues. (Though I haven't really tested very much)

Awesome dude! Really cool idea for a datapack. Love how you repurpose the wandering trader which doesnt get enough love imo. Also really like the survival-friendly aspects of the pack.

Can't wait to see more of these!
