Is it or would it be possible to turn Xaero's Minimap into a datapack? I havn't a clue what the limitations are for datapacks, but would love to see it as a datapack.

Don’t think so?

Plain and simple: no.

A datapack is nothing more but a collection of vanilla options such as specific advancements, functions (which are basically collections of vanilla commands), structures, and so on. They can somewhat enhance the game, but they cannot change it in drastic ways such as with mini maps.

Basically: a datapack can only do whatever you can do in-game as well, nothing more.

really? that seems odd, would have thought it wouldn't be anymore impossible than something like Furniture Datapack

That is what I'd call a hoax. It's not a real datapack but a resource pack (which changes the look of existing blocks) and which got somewhat combined with a datapack. I'm not even convinced that it works, but I'm not really interested in trying.

Bottom line though: all the datapack section does is set up some functions (vanilla commands to run) and some recipes. Recipes which use existing blocks:


{
"type": "crafting_shapeless",
"ingredients": [
{
"item": "minecraft:crafting_table"
}
],
"result": {
"item": "minecraft:structure_void"
}
}

No more, and no less.

But this does not compare at all to setting up a minimap. Minimaps are a completely different ballgame.

fair enough, don't know enough about coding to know what's what. Perhaps some clever person could use the in game map system to affect something similar. Was just curios if it were posible, i'd quite like to have a minimap in game.
