To Install: 

Simply add this .zip file to any world save folder, datapacks subfolder, and reload the world.


This datapack has two options;

1) you can spawn in TroyBoy777's museum and interact with the Curator, who will display the items you turn in...  use wooden planks in a crafting table, in an H pattern to spawn 

Or, 2) you can summon only the Curator and build your own museum! ... use wooden planks in a crafting table, in a C pattern to spawn


Option 1 - Prebuilt Museum


Option 2 - Curator only


HCM Season 5 Rules:

0) Create your world in HARDCORE mode - you can use any seed/settings you like!

1) No taking items from Minecraft generated chests and gardens (ie dungeons, villages, temples, etc.) - this is enforced by the datapack, chests will be generated empty

2) No trading with villagers or other Minecraft entities - villager trades will be disabled by the datapack

3) You cannot spend the night in a building that was generated by the game - this should be self-enforced by players

4) No sleeping in beds* - this is enforced by the datapack

* New Rule: To avoid phantoms, you can turn them off as an option when you create the new world or if you use the pre-built museum there is a button inside.  Else, you are allowed to sleep every 3 days.
