This Datapack adds two main things: a Camera Mode and a Coordinate Management Overhaul! (Make sure to click that Diamond if you like this so others can see & use it!)

The Camera Mode acts very similar to having a Camera Account. When you enter Camera Mode you are put into Spectator mode and the Datapack saves your location. Then, when you leave Camera Mode you are put back where you were when you entered and placed back into Survival Mode!

To Enter Camera Mode:
Simply type /function camncoords:entercam in your chat! You should then be placed in Camera Mode, and a message will pop up that only you can see saying "You Are Now in Camera Mode. (Click to End)

To Leave Camera Mode:
Click the message saying you are in Camera Mode to end. As a backup (in case the message has been lost in chat or you disconnected and reconnected while in Camera Mode) you can just type /function camncoords:z_exit_cam

The Coordinate Management part comes in two functions: Show Coords and Store Coords!

Show Coords
By typing /function camncoords:showcoords in the chat you will be able to send your current coordinates to the chat in a clean, non-cluttering way! You will see a message that says "[​player name]'s Coordinates (Hover)", and anyone can hover over it to see the coordinates you were at upon typing the command. You can use this to send coordinates to friends on the server without worrying about cluttering the chat with a bunch of numbers. The rest of the server will thank you! You can also use this function to save your current location in the chat for yourself, so that you may come right back if you found a cool area, but need to go grab gear.

Store Coords
And lastly, you can type /function camncoords:storecoords in your chat to access your stored sets of coordinates! Each person gets three, and they start blank. You can click on any of the slots to store your current coordinates in it, and then the next time you type the command it will show the stored coords in that slot! You can re-click on an already stored slot to override the currently held coordinates with new ones. There is also an undo function in case you mis-click when saving coordinates. Just click on the "saved" message and it'll undo the override!

And that about does it! I have some videos showing these function on my TikTok: ZylVoices. Look them up if you would like a visual demonstration!

ALSO I highly recommend disable command feedback on your server when you implement this datapack, or any server, really. It keeps the chat clean when admins have to do things such as TP, spawn mobs, etc. When you run these functions in chat you will get messages telling you that "# commands were run" in chat, which will really clutter things up. Disabling command feedback will make this way better, and you can always turn it back on when you need it! Just type /gamerule sendCommandFeedback false in your chat to disable this!

If you use this datapack and like it, let me know! If you find any bugs, please report them to me as soon as possible so I can squash them!

There is no required resource pack for this datapack.

Happy Crafting!
