Here is a link to the wiki which has a more information and examples on datapack support. An example datapack can be downloaded from the wiki or the "Additional Files" section of Forge downloads.


The config file for this mod gives modpack creators plenty of control over the mod. Customizable options include special item abilities, potion effects and enchantments, mob spawn chances/biomes, mob special attacks, and structure generation chances/biomes.

Mysterious Box:

The mysterious box uses .mcfunction files to decide what happens when they're opened. This means a datapack can add .mcfunction files and they will be used as well. The files must be located at "data/[namespace]/functions/mysterious_box/[function_name].mcfunction". See the wiki for details.


The songs that can be played on a panflute or lyre are loaded through datapacks. Users can add their own songs in a JSON format and save it as "data/[namespace]/songs/[song_name].json". The JSON file must specify a name and credits (or translation keys), the interval between each beat, the total number of beats, and one or two arrays of notes to play (from 0-24 where 0 means "no note"). See the wiki for details.


The quests that are found in chests or given by Centaurs can use a custom data pack. Users can add their own quests in a JSON format and save it as "data/[namespace]/quests/[quest_name].json". The JSON file must specify the description and components (or translation keys). See the wiki for details.
