When you see a regular zombie while playing Minecraft, you probably think nothing of it.
But when you see one of these zombies...
You'll run.
This datapack completely changes the spawning mechanic for mobs.
No more non-zombie hostile mobs in the overworld.
Most hostile mobs will now spawn as zombies.
All zombies will spawn with more health, more attack damage, and faster speed.
But it doesn't end there.
There is a chance that pigs, cows, sheep, chickens, or even horses will spawn as zombified variants.
Zombies are very weak to fire!
They will die very quickly if on fire.
All zombies will also leave a trail of fire when they are on fire.
Don't die.
Because dying will infect you with the zombie virus.
As a zombie you are slightly stronger and zombies will no longer attack you.
However you have slowness, mining fatigue 2, and constant hunger.
So you want to cure yourself fast.

But rumor has it that some zombies have even tried to cure themselves.
So they might have a special item on them when they die.
Regular Zombie
-Regular Zombie
Stalker Zombie
-Is faster but has less health.
Nurse Zombie
-Drops gunpowder.
(When you have Gamingbarn's Guns installed they will drop various medical items.) (Even cures.)
Psychopath Zombie
-Wields a special sword that it can drop on death.
-Because it has a sword it does more damage.
Soldier Zombie
-Has resistance 1.
(When you have Gamingbarn's Guns installed they will drop more ammo)
Scorched Zombie
-Is immune to fire.
(When you have Gamingbarn's Guns installed they will drop more ammo.)
Swarm Zombie
-If you find one, there is always more nearby.
Spider Zombie
-Spawns from cave spider spawners.
-Drops spiders eyes.
Builder Zombie
-Will place blocks on the ground level around itself
Miner Zombie
-Will break blocks near itself (note: will only break simple blocks like wood and cobblestone)

One more thing to mention.
When a zombie is hurt by you,
All nearby zombies will come to its aid.
This datapack also has some commands players with OP can run
Run the following commands to turn off/on player infections. (This is on by default)
/function config:infection_off/function config:infection_onRun the following commands to turn off/on zombie animals. (This is on by default)
/function config:animal_zombies_off/function config:animal_zombies_onRun the following commands to turn off/on zombie builders/miners. (This is on by default)
/function config:special_zombies_off
/function config:special_zombies_on
Run the following command to summon any of the custom zombies (Change [ZOMBIE] with the type of zombie)

/function summon:[ZOMBIE]-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The books that zombies drop can be scrapped in the crafting grid for 3 rabbit hides.

Update V1.6 : by Gamingbarn 03/04/2022 6:07:17 pmMar 4th

Added commands to summon zombies
Makes it easier to study zombies
Spider Zombies can no longer turn into miner or builder zombies
Doesn't make sense when a spider spawner spawns builder zombies
Changed name of Roaming Zombie to Stalker Zombie
Roaming zombie just didn't make a whole lot of sense
Changed name of Zombie Killer to Psychopath Zombie
Fits better, with the bloody hockey mask and all
When zombies are on fire, they will leave a trail of fire behind them
Beware the scorched zombie >:)
Written books can be scraped in the crafting grid for 3 rabbit hides
Finally, a use for those hundreds of tattered books in your chests
Nerfed ammo drops of zombies
With the new magazine system ammo drops were WAY to op
Made nurse zombie head more zombie-like
It felt to cartoonish compared to the other zombie heads
Removed guns as a possible drop option from soldier zombies
This was seen as too op, it might come back later
In their place, they now drop even more ammo
Added new soldier zombie varient
Spices up gameplay a bit
Enderman now spawn in the end and nether again
The end was pure chaos when it was all zombies

I suppose I could, but why? It is for 1.16 and it lacks almost every feature that exists currently? Heck, even the name was different.

Is it possible to make a version that doesn't ban other hostile mobs from spawning

No, the datapack relies on overriding the spawning of natural monsters to dictate whether the zombie should be a nurse, stalker, etc.
