After being teased on r/Minecraft about a week ago, Prime's Survival Tweaks is finally up for download! PST is a pack designed to fix the currently broken system of progression in Minecraft. In vanilla, a players simply makes a wooden pickaxe, upgrades to a stone one, and has full iron gear by possibly the first night; after this, it's just a grind until they get diamond gear and that's it. PTS aims to remedy this through custom crafting recipes, functions, loot tables and more, which all provide a more concrete path for the player to follow; along with some other survival-based tweaks to help balance the game. Make no mistake, PTS is a difficult pack and as such is aimed at more veteran players who wish to spice things up a bit, it will not be everyone's cup of tea.
As a final note, the pack is currently only compatible with the 1.14 snapshots and I don't plan on backporting it to 1.13 any time soon. Additionally, it is already clear that crafting in Minecraft will get a major overhaul with the addition of all the new crafting blocks in 1.14, although as of now we do not know how, as none of the blocks have functionality. Depending on the use of these blocks, a re-balance of the crafting recipes in PTS could be required, however I guess we will just have to wait and see.
