Vanilla Parity / Ver. 1.5.3

For Minecraft 1.17

Vanilla Parity is a data pack designed to resolve some of the parity issues between Minecraft Java and Minecraft Bedrock, where features exist in one edition of the game and not in the other. A list can be found here.

Disclaimer: Not all features in the issue list are implemented in the data pack. Some features are either hard-coded, inefficient to implement, or missing. This data pack has not been tested for multiplayer, so let me know if there are any bugs that involve multiplayer.

Vanilla Parity Repository
The Vanilla Parity Repository contains alternate versions for the Vanilla Parity Data Pack, including beta builds and the revoked version. The beta builds are experimental and less stable than the full release, so expect things to not work as intended. The Revoked Edition removes the extra Bedrock advancements that were in the original. This is so that you can enjoy your world with other data packs without the advancments cluttering everthing up. The Revoked Edition is linked to the latest original version.

1. Not all achievements are implemented. Some are too difficult to detect while other's aren't efficient to implement.
2. See Raid wave spawning
3. When a player goes through a nether portal, a marker will be summoned and check within a 3x4x7 area (underneath the center of where the player is standing and rotated accordingly from the direction of the nether portal itself) Each horizontal layer must consist of at least 10 of any block, but not more than 4 of either magma blocks or lava. These conditons are checked to determine if the nether portal the player is in a considered "safe" area. If the condition has been met for the top-most layer, the platform won't generate. If the conditions haven't been met for any of the layers, the platform will generate to where the portal has been located.

Francielly - thanks for allowing me to use Snowy++ for the data pack.

Will vine grow on oak trees or is that impossible?

I don't know what the purpose of enchanted_item.json is, or how important it is; but it makes the game unplayable for me. All it seems to do is apply the NBT tag HasBeenEnchanted: 1b to every item in your inventory every time you interact with, use or move an enchanted item around in your inventory. This might be fine if it didn't have the added side effect of making them unstackable with items that don't yet have the NBT tag, causing your inventory to fill up very quickly with stacks of one item when mining with enchanted tools.

Other than this the datapack is great and I'll be using it in all of my worlds from now on, just with enchanted_item.json removed for now (which I hope doesn't break the pack).

The enchanted_item.json modifier is only used to sure that the advancement "Disenchanted" works. This issue is due to a small oversight, but it will be fixed as soon as I can.

Hello, is the tick function bug people were discussing below fixed? I would like to use this pack but I'm afraid it'll break my other packs. Thanks!

It should be fixed now. I would suggest making a backup of your world before using that pack. If the problem is still there, then please let me know

Needs an update. Your tick function tag is broken, which makes this datapack break itself and every other datapack installed.
