This datapack requires a rework to be updated to 1.20+
This is no longer a high priority project, and I may not get to it any time soon.

Want to be able to throw your swords or axes like tridents? Now you can.

Created by: PvPqnda

For Minecraft 1.17 - 1.19

Datapack Features:

• This datapack allows any sword or axe to be thrown at mobs or blocks!
The weapon will drop back as an item once it hits something!
Supports item NBT data!

• To throw a sword or axe, simply drop it while holding it!

• Thrown weapons damage mobs and players, break glass, cut grass, and more!

• Thrown swords enchanted with fire aspect will still respectively catch
whatever mob it hits on fire!

• Thrown weapons still lose durability upon landing!

• There are 6 customizable settings to access using the command: "/function throwableswords:admin_info"
(Only players with operator permissions can access this page)

• Anyone is able to view how many weapons they've thrown, and what settings
are enabled/disabled by typing: "/trigger ThrowableSwords"
(Can be enabled/disabled in the admin info page)

Survival & Multiplayer friendly

Is it possible to make additional modded weapons compatible with this?

Not exactly; I'd have to implement them myself.

What do you mean by this? Like clicking the sword while it's being thrown at you to grab it mid-air?

I'm afraid I won't be doing that since it's vanilla minecraft for some mobs to be able to pick up dropped weapons and armor.
