    As to your more strong arguments AnDragon11, I agree that in the end it's just human nature to click on what catches your eye and that a lot of times effort will be overshadowed by appeal, although I do believe there's a fair share of users who look for more than just the first flashy thing they see. Well done.

    I believe you're wrong in calling out all users to be as simple minded as you described yourself to be. While effort does not always guarantee reward, (applies to the real world as well), if you direct effort towards the right direction such as the packs Hashs mentioned, you'll be rewarded. Same as real life; obviously people who do cheap things and, mind my language, "cheat the system" will sometimes move to the top, but so will those that demonstrate effort in their work.

    Your argument that "you can put 100 hours into a pack with thousands of changes but that still doesn't mean that another pack that makes a slight adjustment to the main game won't get more downloads" has warrant obviously. Not everyone's looking for a mod like datapack. But not everyone's looking for a slight adjustment either "since it all comes down to what people want to see" like you said. Thus, if you show effort and make something different; people will want different things obviously but that doesn't mean they all want the first thing they see on the shelf. A more aware PMC user would look at alternatives first before choosing a datapack to their liking. Those that you described to be like yourself, ("I'm looking a for a datapack and I search for that, I'm going to see the one that looks the best and download it") either don't have time or aren't very aware, in both cases they're missing out although the former is obviously less on the fault of the user.

    Another wild guess is that those users you describe to be like yourself are typically young users that don't know any better, in which case there's nothing we can do I suppose. In the end, AnDragon's arguments are really valid, and I'm really agreeing with that statement at the end, "Some people may not like 40 dimensions, yet they will love to have simple recipes added."
    Much like what I said above, it's all about what people want, but unlike what you claim, effort does not have "very little to do" with the pack's success. Even some of the users in this comments section have commented regarding their struggles with finding the right pack, demonstrating that users don't just jump to the first thing they see.

    It's always fascinating talking to interesting people like you, chazym. If you have discord, I'd love to talk it out with you.

    This is kinda facts; one of the only other places is Curseforge but that's mainly used for mods and has a much more strict process than PMC which is meant to be a more friendly place for us content creators.

    I make quality of life datapacks, not cheaty ones. I honestly think the ones I have made (along with my mods) are fair and balanced and I agree with what you said entirely.
    There's a difference between simple and cheaty too.

    Diamond just feels the most rewarding because the other ores help you get up to that. Other than that, coal is very useful for fuel and torches still and emeralds are just so rare that it's nice to find.

    Not the first of it's kind (voxel game) but was a unique one in terms of freedom. It's still widely supported, and the community is actually really friendly (as we can see on this very website). User freedom is not just limited to your worlds, but the game itself as it's one of the easiest games to modify out there (and one of the most fun games to make mods with). You can level entire chunks if you want to. You can make friends if you want to. You can rip their textures, make a melon a diamond block, and put it back into the game and play like that if you want to.

    I will concede that a lot of us stopped playing for a few years mid/late 2010's because there was a sudden decrease in updates and such and other games quickly took over, however it is nice to see the community thriving. One can argue that it never really "died", just vanished when the world needed it the most but returned a 100 years later in an iceberg- oh wait

    Just saying, but you should do some background research on how companies work, and then some on Mojang and Microsoft itself and how integrated one is in the other now.
