Upgrade your game with these working security cameras offering a lot of functions!

This datapack offers:

+Realistic looking security cameras you can control while being in camera mode

+Rarely any influence on perfomance, very efficiently programmed

+Easy to install/delete, no knowledge needed -> controls are intuitive

+Multiplayer friendly, but limited to one player in camera mode

+When somebody is in camera mode, this person is represented by a villager whose name is the name of the current player (Picture 8). When the villager dies, the player in camera mode dies, so you can not "hide" in camera mode. You can see the current health of the villager through the bossbar on the top of the screen (Picture 6/7)

+Crafting recipes (Picture 9/10) -> You can also use this datapack in survival

+To remove a camera/cam base destroy the block the camera/cam base is placed on

+Only one cam base is allowed

+Most importantly: DO NOT PLAY IN PEACEFUL

+ .....

Toggable Modes
+Night Vision mode (example in picture 6) -> Lets you see in the dark
+Entity detection -> players close to the camera base are getting notified when a camera has detected an entity (example in picture 7)
+Self turning mode -> the camera turns in an 90° angle, which is very nice in camera mode to get an overview over a huge area and looks very "alive" for other players
+Automatically changing mode -> changes to next camera every few seconds, so you can lean back but have an eye on everything :D

+ /tag @p add cam -> Enables you to use the cameras
+ /trigger camHelp-> Help page
+ /trigger cam [​ID]-> When in camera mode, you will go to the camera with the typed ID (very useful in combination with entity detection!)
+ /trigger camItems -> Gives you the items, creative mode only
+ /function cam:cam_install-> installs the datapack, Cheats/OP needed!
+ /function cam:cam_uninstall-> deletes the datapack, Cheats/OP needed!

This datapack offers tons of features! This list is not complete at all, so download the datapack now and try all the amazing features! :)

hi so for the most part it works great, i added the tag and i can access the cams and use them. except that sometimes it kills me with the death message "user was too focused on using security cameras" and i don't know what to do. the villager didn't die, that's for certain

edit: also the /trigger cam [​ID] doesn't work and certain cams don't show up, i can view cam 10 and 12 but 11 doesn't show and sometimes it blocks entirely. cams in the nether also don't seem to be working sadly

I have a realm for me and my friends and we usually max out at 3 players at once, sometimes 4. After I installed this datapack the server started lagging even if there was no one using the cameras. So if I'm right that means that the cameras are still being processed even if they aren't in use. Can you fix that if possible??
But it's a great datapack and I really like it! (:

When I click "Start" it says "You cannot trigger this objective yet."
Seems like a great pack, but doesn't work for me.
