About the Pack

  Vanilla Expansion aims to add new quality-of-life features to the game while maintaining the vanilla survival feel. This datapack adds several different features including recipes, improved mob loot, additional game mechanics, and more. A full list of the modifications can be found below.

  • EXP Orbs draw near to the closest player, enabling them to move through smaller openings.
  • Shulkers will always drop 2x Shulker Shell (this does not change with Looting).
  • Bats will occasionally drop 1x-3x Rotten Flesh when killed.
  • Crop items will now plant themselves if dropped on farmland.
  • Saplings will now plant themselves after three minutes if dropped in a valid spot.
  • Concrete Powder can be converted into concrete by tossing it into a water-filled cauldron.
  • Crafting recipes containing Cobblestone can now use almost any type of stone.
  • Stonecutters can now cut all variants of wood (overworld and nether).

Is there a way I can get this without woodcutting (I’m using charm) and on 1.16.5? Thanks!
