This is the second VOAT (Variations on a Theme) pack I'm releasing, where I take a theme I like of something already in the game, and expand it massively. This pack's theme is Masks.
The VOAT - MASKS datapack adds in 87 new masks to minecraft, obtainable through villager trades using a new set of 6 wooden masks. Aside from the 6 wooden masks, every single mask is based off of a pre-existing mob in the game, and can be worn on the players head, put in an item frame, or put on any mob that is able to wear a helmet.
This is an alternative to Heads; while less decorative, these masks have proper 3D models, 2 of which have animated textures, and have quite a bit of an interesting flare because of that compared to the uniform & inanimate playerhead item. Put them on your villagers to make for a more unique village, place them on your armourstands for general home decor, or mount them above your fireplace like you hunted them yourself. This pack is perfect especially for players who are tired of being constrained to having the same shape player model as everyone else, and just want a simple change to their appearance without anything overpowered or modded occuring.
To get yourself started, you'll want to enchant yourself a pair of fortune shears. The level of fortune determines the % chance that a wooden mask drops. To acquire a wooden mask, simply break stripped wood blocks with your fortune shears.
Upon retrieval of a wooden mask, find any villager, and use a dispenser to put the mask on the villager. This will open up 1 of 9 sets of trades, depending on these 9 conditions:
- If the Villager is in the Nether, it will become the Nether Mask Salesman.
- If the Villager is in the End, it will become the End Mask Salesman.
- If the Villager is a Cartographer, it will become the Travelling Mask Salesman.
- If using an Oak Mask, the Villager will become the Oak Mask Salesman.
- If using a Birch Mask, the Villager will become the Birch Mask Salesman.
- If using a Spruce Mask, the Villager will become the Spruce Mask Salesman.
- If using a Jungle Mask, the Villager will become the Jungle Mask Salesman.
- If using an Acacia Mask, the Villager will become the Acacia Mask Salesman.
- If using a Dark Oak Mask, the Villager will become the Dark Oak Mask Salesman.
Each Mask Salesman sells a different set of Masks. Each [Wood] Mask Salesman requires their corresponding mask type as well as 4 emeralds for each Mask trade.
A word of warning: The masks themselves are technically carved pumpkins. Attempting the right click function using a mask will place it as a carved pumpkin, and you will not be able to retrieve the mask. Unfortunately, there is no decent alternative or way around this, and this is simply the limitation put in place by the game as it is.
Download & Installation:
As the VOAT - MASKS pack is actually a datapack and resource pack, there are two files the user must download,
Once this has been finished, keep in mind that as a datapack, these masks show up per-world. If you’re running a single-player world or if the server you wish to host VOAT - MASKS on is Yours, you won’t have to worry one bit, but if you want to get these fruit on a server that belongs to someone else, you won’t be able to without asking the owners/managers of that server. However, if you have access to the files of your single-player world / multi-player server, follow this simple installation process:
Select the world you wish to install the datapack in.
Drop “resources.zip” into .minecraft/saves/[YOUR WORLD NAME]/
Go to .minecraft/saves/[YOUR WORLD NAME]/datapacks
If the folder “datapacks” does not exist, create one.
Drop “VOAT_FRUIT.zip” into .minecraft/saves/[YOUR WORLD NAME]/datapacks/
And that’s the entire process! If you’re running a server, you may need to do a restart, but otherwise everything should be ready to go.
