Music Capsules - Throwing the beats !

Current progress : [--9/12------------------]

Music Capsules is a 1.13 + data pack that adds a new use to music discs ! Replaced by coloured capsules, you can now throw them with a redstone torch to activate them and enjoy buffs as long as you hear the song! These vary according to the music, and will last only the time of the song.
Comes with fancy 3d models and particle effects > [ streamable.com/hktof ]

Usage - click to reveal
Step 1 : Find / Craft / Drop a capsule
You can find them in villages, dungeons, mineshafts and strongholds. You can also use the crafting recipes below to craft them, and they still drop from creepers as usual when killed by a skeleton..
Step 2 : Activate it !
To activate the capsule, simply drop it on the floor with a redstone torch. You'll be able to pick up again the torch.

Update 5 - New moves ? : 09/29/2018 1:12:52 amSep 29th, 2018

Added 3 new Capsules ! Not generated in the world, you'll have to craft them for now, or drop them from a creeper (I'll change all the loot table soon, but now I'm focusing on adding content). You can now enjoy more agressive electronic beats, or symply relax with some choir singing.

- White Capsule (music_disc_strad)
- Black Capsule (music_disc_stal)
- Orange Capsule (music_disc_mall)

Little detail, have you noticed that, for the first time, the Orange Capsule doesn't match the original disc's color :D ? It's simply because there isn't many colors left, and I couldn't have more blue or green capsules !

Great and intuitive idea! I have never seen any mod or datapack that adds uses for the music discs. Good job!

Amazing pack! one issue i have with it is that when you kill creepers with a skelly, they drop records. i assume this still happens with the capsules. And if they drop the capsules they will immediately activate. I was thinking you might use some other sort of activation like an item you have to put it in, or an item that has to be dropped with it on the ground.



I've fixed this issue by requiring a redstone block to be dropped next to the music capsule to activate it.

This makes record farms usable to farm them

I also fixed an issue whare when you activate a capsule, any other capsule of the same color on the ground will be deleted.

Hey Dvdcd,
Thanks for your work, i'm happy that you took the time to check it out and even modify it !
About what you said, I tried to change the creeper's loot table but this behaviour seems hardcoded; the alternative you created seems like a good way around and I may reuse it, if you agree.
Then the las issue you mentionned isn't really one, it's totally intended as to avoid people spamming a song, but I'll rework it soon as it is not practical at all.
But again, thanks for your work, I'll credit you in the next update even if I don't reuse your commands.

Sure! you can use my commands if you want, and i'm not too fussed about being credited. As i'm sure you can see, the only files modified for the redstone block activation thing is the main capsule activation function.

This is amazing looking my friend. I look forward to the updates and I certainly will be using this. <3 Would you link images or anything once I do?

Hello, for the images it really depends of what you want to do ? I already have some but if you have something better why not ! Regarding the updates, it will be slower now that I'm back to studies, but don't worry - now that the core is done I can add new capsules easily. AND I've got some further plans but let's nor reveal them for now ^^

Just offering mate! Was so very tired, I meant like photos, not link. xD Regardless take your all the time in the world. Studies come first, I'm just glad to have stumbled across such a cool concept. :D
