TRUE SURVIVALTrue Survival Mode VERSION 3.0 IS HERE Minecraft Data Pack
The True Survival Mode datapack aims to do a few things:

1) Emphasize the survival aspects of Minecraft without detracting from its more creative features.

2) Fill the holes in features that Mojang has left behind.

3) Make Minecraft a heart-pounding experience that alludes to Minecraft's versions of old.

True Survival Mode VERSION 3.0 IS HERE Minecraft Data Pack
True Survival Mode features a complete rework of the healing, hunger, and lighting systems, in addition to many difficulty tweaks, quality of life changes, and all new mechanics!
You'll see things like campfires that heal you, skeletons that can switch weapons, a reworked Ender Dragon fight, and much more!

True Survival Version 3.0 has 90+ lag-efficient features and is looking to get even more!

True Survival comes with its own custom resource pack! However, unlike most datapacks, this resource pack is completely OPTIONAL. The gameplay and immersive experience will not be dampered by choosing not to download it. (But it is highly recommended!)

To download this resource pack, visit this link here.

Full feature list found here:

For more details on the specific features, check out my other datapacks! A lot of them have been combined to create TRUE SURVIVAL.

This pack is for 1.16.5! Here's a link on how to properly install just in case.


If you can see the custom advancements in the advancements tab, then everything is probably just fine! Also, fair warning: some server plugins are incompatible with datapacks.

Soorry, It's me again, having the problem I wrote just below. Unhapilly so, replacing the files didn't work, this time.
The minecraft version is 21w08b . The datapacks I have are treecapitator-v2-6-2, Pig Litters Version 0.1, Magnet Datapack, leash-villager-v0.1.0, lavasponge and Infinite Trades.

Ahhh, that'll do it. Version 2.3.3 of True Survival is not compatible with 1.17. There's an updated loot table format among other things that will disable datapack functionality when trying to load it outside of 1.16.

Thank you for your answer.
Apologies, but I don't fully understand. I player with the datapack on this world for a few days without having any issues with the campfire regen, and all the other features seem to be working fine (as far as I can tell. I plan on starting kelp and honey farms for the healing salves).
I think I understand that there may be some imcomtibility here, but also seems to not be fully incompatible, since it worked before O.o .

Edit: Tried it out real quick, and seems like the drop items to create such item do not work. Guess I still find it weird that it was working before, and there is some stuff that does work (iron nugget drops, recipes, the such). Guess I'll have to wait for the next version.

I was playing normally and all of a sudden, thrown logs to the regular campfire don't trigger hp regen.
I tried reloading the datapack, dying, and restarting the game.
Edit: Sorry, I redownloaded the datapack, and replaced the one I had. Find it kinda weird, though :/ .

I was playing around in the files, and made the healing salve use apples instead so they could be stackable. Well, I quickly found that because of how the pack treats salves, it'll consume whatever amount I put into my offhand at a time. Honestly, a price I'm willing to pay to give my poor inventory a break 😂
