Pack Requirements
Depends on a Resource Pack
Project Resource Pack

Also available on Planet Minecraft. Previously known as Nether Survival.

This data pack makes little changes to the Nether that makes you more able to survive there. This pack is intended to be played with the following setup:
  • Survival mode. Cheats on, or temporarily open the game to LAN with cheats on.
  • Run this command:/datapack disable vanilla
Players who are in Survival or Adventure mode should automatically be teleported to the Nether, even upon dying re-spawning.

Visit the Netherbound Wiki for crafting recipes and other info.

Version 3.0 is here with tons of new decorative blocks and a new mob to use for farming fungi and foliage, as well as fixing a bunch of bugs and making the pack compatible with the latest snapshot!

Update: 3.1 has been added and fixes respawning and Gold Ore not smelting.

Update: 3.2 has been added and fixes an issue where Wasps would always spawn but never despawn, filling the world with infinite Wasps. Hijacks have also been modified to be less intensive and/or destructive, only emitting particles and creating Cobwebs when there is a player nearby. And lastly, Nether Portals have been disabled. Trying to go through one will damage you! The Resource Pack has also been updated to version 3.2!

Known Bugs
  • Nether spawning platform has a chance to not generate air, spawning players inside the terrain. I don't know what causes this, but it seems to work fine so long as it's not trying to generate the platform upon loading the world. Try running the /datapack disable vanilla command after you've generated the world for the first time without saving and quitting at all?
  • Ender Chests drop Obsidian instead of Chiseled Quartz Blocks.
  • Soul Fire cannot be lit on Soul Sand or Soul Soil
  • Respawn Anchors cannot be crafted and do not drop anything when broken.
Planned Additions or Changes
  • A way to obtain TNT.
  • Fully implemented Cockatrices.
  • A new area to explore?

Latest reviews

This pack is hard to get started with as there is no wiki or tutorials that iv'e found, but it is very satisfying to figure out how to progress. I suggest skimming the features to at least give yourself some goal, like find structures in the Soul Sand Valley biome. There is also some nice features missing, like being able to move your spawnpoint to a base you made, though I expect these problems to be later fixed somehow. Other than that the amount of new blocks, new recipes, and new mobs all make force me to relearn the ways of playing Minecraft, something which I haven't done in years. Now granted mods / modpacks can give you the same experience and better, though I find datapacks very easy to install and play quickly, unlike mods. I highly suggest anyone to play this datapack, though be warned, it is pretty damn difficult.
Note: There is in fact a wiki, and in version 3.2 you can use vanilla Respawn Anchors to move your spawnpoint (this review was written in 3.1 when Respawn Anchors weren't available).
