Data packs are files that contain data used to modify the game. Unlike Resource Packs, which only affect the client, data packs are server-side, and data packs installed on a server/world will apply to any players connecting to it. Data packs can be used to modify advancements, recipes, structures, biomes, and more, with many of the mod's features being customizable via data packs as well. Data packs do not exist in Minecraft 1.7.10, so are only available for the Renewed version of the mod. For more information, see The Minecraft Wiki. There is also a list of template data packs compiled by Mevans to demonstrate some of the mod's custom data pack systems, found here.
Listed below are all the current data packs available for the mod:
This datapack adds a configurable compass that can track up to 50 players or entities. The compass points at the nearest tracked entity, and can be configured to track entities through dimensions. While not an explicitly lotr mod data pack, the pack does add support for the Middle-earth dimension.
