Travelers grants you (and your vehicle) move speed on dirt_path and polished blocks! It also automatically generates grass paths where you and your friends walk the most.


  • Grant some speed on dirt_path and polished blocks.
  • Hide polished_blocks underground (at player y-2) and getthe speed effect as well.
  • Use vehicles on path to get the speed as well.
  • Speed boost on path (from +10% to +200%).
  • Auto path generation on grass_block (after 5 steps on the block). (should be disabled on large server)
  • Auto path renew : go back to grass if players no longer use this path.
  • Auto path overload : if too many players, path may turn into dirt (after 25 steps on the block).

Options (Patreon feature)

To adjust options to your needs, use:
/function fktvl:options/get
Add your blocks to the Path System
You can add your blocks to the path-list in the file datapacks/Travelers/data/fktvl/tags/blocks/custom_path.json

1. Replace, add or duplicate the line "minecraft:dirt_path" by your desire block. Exemple : "minecraft:podzol"
2. Save the file, and use /reload in game.

If it no longer works :
- Make sure to use real block names (any mistake will break the datapack).
- Take care or the "," punctuation between lines, and not at the last line.
- Save again, reload again.
Issue / Bug
Dirth_path VS grass_block
When destroying a generated dirth_path, wait for fiew 10 seconds before placing a grass_block, otherwise it will be replaced by the dirth_path again.

Thanks for your feed back, this issue should be fixed now!

It was, indeed, the auto path generator detecting a path that has not been walked enougth, and so it reboot it as a grass path.

Does it works on other mobs? Like the villagers, would their steps generate the paths?
And will the original paths in villages renew into grass block?

Hi Eugene2000,
Other entities do not produce paths, this features would be to heavy for servers.
Original paths are permanent and won't dispawn on walk.

(Note that, placing a dirt_path on a previous grass_block may update the block. To fix that, break the grass_block and wait 10s before placing the dirt_path)

Thank you for replying!!
What will happen when a block updates? The path_block I put will renew to a grass_block?

And I was going to ask that, what if I use shovel to turn the grass to path? Will it be permanent too?

If you use a shovel, yes, the dirt path will be permanent. Like any other natural dirt path.

The logic start when a player walk on a grass block. This block is now under the datapack's control, counting the steps and updating the block if required. If you want to change this controled block, it's ok, the datapack will leave this block if it's not a dirt path or a grass block. The exception comes if you want to turn it back into grass block or dirt path: in this case the datapack won't understand it has to leave the block ^^

So, break the block, wait 10 seconds (max check loop duration), then place your block!
