A Nether Life


This data pack allows players to start their game in the Nether instead of the Overworld, and supplies all the resources needed to do so. It also tweaks the drop rates of various new blocks from the 1.16 snapshots to be more in line with other parts of Minecraft, such as foliage blocks requiring shears to harvest and fungi occasionally dropping from their respective Wart blocks similar to leaves dropping from saplings.
