Vanilla Hammers and Excavators

is a simple datapack that tries to be minimalistic as to fit into the vanilla gameplay.

  • Hammers are basically pickaxes, but they mine a 3x3 area in the direction you're looking and work on stone-like blocks.
  • Excavators, same thing, basically shovels, but they work on dirt-like blocks.
  • They come in all the material types from wood to netherite.
  • They are crafted using a smithing table by combining a pickaxe/shovel and some blocks of wood (bark blocks), stone (furnaces), iron, gold, diamond or netherite by throwing them all on top of it. NOTE: You must drop the items on the top of the smithing table (because Mojang still has no proper support for NBT crafting or similar)
  • Compatible with Enchantments and does not replace any vanilla features
  • Warden drops Resonance Core at 50% rate which can be used to get rid of the Mining Fatigue debuff.
  • Translation is semi-supported, you can translate the lang/en_us.json file in the resourcepack to your own language. Send me a message if you want to share the translations :)
If you need more info, check out the video for more details like install instructions and how to craft the tools.

Compatibility shows 1.15-1.19. Note that you need to download different packs for those older versions (you can find them on my YT channel)

Oh it should have.

Either way, have a version for 1.19 now, which also fixes some bugs.

Hi, i was wondering if there is any easy way to add blocks to the list of breakable blocks, for example making it work when breaking a blackstone block

Yes as a matter of fact:

Go to: AgentM HMEX Data Pack\data\hms\tags\blocks\mineable

There should be "excavator.json" and "hammer.json" where you can add blocks you want to mine as well using the hammer.

(Unfortunately however you must also edit some files in AgentM HMEX Data Pack\data\hms\functions\target because of limitations with matching blocks and items, you should be able to figure it out (duplicate a line and adapt it))

hello. would it be possible to edit the mining area's as the hammers as they get better? i.e, iron 3x3, gold 5x5, diamond 7x7, etc? if so, where would i be able to change that within the datapack folder? thank you

Yeah. This is a cool idea, but I think it would get really overpowered.

I added an upgrade to remove the mining fatigue completely though which makes the hammers blazing fast and instant mine with haste II Eff V for things like stone
