This datapack will make wandering trades announce their presence once to nearby players in the chat after they spawned. They shoot out a few fireworks above them and glow for 10 seconds after spawning. There is a total of 10 different messages they can say. The trades are not altered. The current version is v4 for Minecraft 1.20.4 all the way down to 1.17.


Drop the .zip file into the datapacks folder inside your world save file. If the world is already running, enter /reload into the chat. That's it!

This datapack should be compatible with other wandering trader modifying datapacks.

Does it work on a multiplayer server?
Yes, it does. Announcements will be made to all players within a radius of 256 blocks.

Just out of curiosity, do the fireworks he shoots make damage? Because my wandering traders always spawn like on a cave with roof.

Sir, it also works in 1.16.5
may I repost your datapack on this forum ? It is one of largest Minecraft forums in China, without your approval, I will not distribute your datapack in any form or provide any file downloads to anyone, I will only direct download links to the ones you provide me, of course, if you dont specify, I will include a link to this page in the description

Of course, Im glad to help

I noticed your message today due to my busy schedule

Just a quick update to prevent any long absences from my end

The post I shared gathered around two hundred views in the last two weeks

While this might seem a bit low, its quite common given the smaller user base for datapacks compared to resourcepacks and mods

This is especially true in our Minecraft community in China, where the usage of wandering traders isnt very high

I anticipate your datapack will primarily attract players of skyblock without water or lava (like myself), as well as those with specific needs, such as players using modpacks that alter wandering trader trades

Consequently, it wont immediately gain significant attention. I truly appreciate the quality of your datapack. Prior to discovering it, I attempted to create my own, but it was rudimentary and had numerous issues

Once I wrap up my current tasks, I'll explore additional avenues to promote it. As we agreed before, I‘ll use the link you’ve provided here and refrain from distributing the files m
