Cave-ier Spiders [Datapack]

552 Downloads Last Updated: Aug 11, 2020 Game Version: 1.17.1   +5

This pack will not be updated past 1.17. Mojang broke the system is uses and has directly refused to fix it. I apologize for the inconvenience.
This datapack makes cave spiders spawn in caves instead of normal spiders. Perfect for anyone who wants a little more challenge while caving. Due to how the datapack functions, player-made underground areas (including mines) will be safe from this change.

To use this in your world, you need to drop the downloaded .zip file into your world's datapacks folder. You can find this in the following directory:

/.minecraft/saves/<world save>/datapacks

The "<world save>" is whatever your world's file is named.

There is no need to unzip or unpackage anything.

Installing Updates:

Delete the old version of the pack and paste in the new one. Do not reload the world (either by rejoining or typing /reload) before pasting in the new version. Simply pasting without deleting can cause issues with files not being properly removed, replaced, or renamed.
