    Really Simple Loot Table Modifier for Wither Skeletons pertaining to Skull drop chances.

    I made this about a year ago for a server I was running at the time.

    After answering a question on r/admincraft, I decided to upload it to PlanetMinecraft for ease of access.

    Original Loot Tables for Skulls are:

    2.5% with no Looting
    3.5% with Looting I
    4.5% with Looting II
    5.5% with Looting III

    New Loot Tables for Skulls are:

    5% with no Looting
    10% with Looting I
    15% with Looting II
    20% with Looting III

    The Loot Table can be easily modified by digging into the datapack itself.

    To do so, open the datapack and go to the following directory:

    "data -> minecraft -> loot_tables -> entities"

    Open the wither_skeleton.json in notepad.

    Scroll down until you see the section for "wither_skeleton_skull"

    In that next section you'll see the "conditions".

    "chance"; 0.05 means there's now a 5% chance of dropping a skull without Looting

    "looting_multiplier"; 0.05 means each level of Looting increases the chance by 5%.

    For example, changing "chance"; 0.05 to 1.00 means a skeleton will drop a skull every time it's killed by a player.

    Personally, I found this re-balancing of 5,10,15,20 to be a little overpowered. I might suggest just re-balancing the looting multiplier to give a result of:

    2.5, 7.5, 12.5, and 17.5

    Even that might be a little overpowered.

    Final word of warning if you're managing a server, do yourself a favor and make people kill the wither in the bedrock under the dragon portal. I had one get loose in the nether and it was a mess.
