Expanded Advancement and Recipe Pack

This is a datapack that adds a plethora of advancements and recipes for your survival world. It is currently updated for 1.13.2 and there is a beta for 1.14 Pre-Release 3.

Spanish version of the pack is available for "platypack19w03c", Italian is available for "platypack1.13.2 V2" and the 1.14 snapshots. Chinese is available for "platypack1.13.2", German and Portuguese versions are available for "platypack1.13 V2" and Russian is available for "platypack1.13" under the "Files" page. Click the respective file. The download is toward the bottom, under the changelog. Translation credits can be found below. Many thanks to the translators!

If you want to use this datapack for anything other than a singleplayer world, read the spoiler at the bottom of the page.


This pack contains 303 advancements and 13 tabs (356 advancements and 14 tabs in the beta). They consist of Vanilla's existing advancements, brand new advancements, remakes of old achievements, and achievements exclusive to Bedrock/Console versions of the game.

Some advancements were taken from another pack. Credit and a link to the pack can be found below. Many thanks for these creators for helping make this pack what it is!

Basic info about the different tabs can be found here.


Click here to see a table of all the recipes I have added or tweaked. All the recipes have in-game unlocks, just like the Vanilla recipes. Do not bother asking for permission to edit/comment on the spreadsheet. You have no reason to and your request will not be granted.

If you wish to play the pack with just the advancements, a version without recipes is available for download under the "Files" tab. Click the most recent file and scroll down to the bottom. Under the changelog should be the download.

There is a second sheet for beta versions.


To use this in your world, you need to drop the downloaded .zip file into your world's datapacks folder. You can find this in the following directory:

/.minecraft/saves/<world save>/datapacks

The "<world save>" is whatever your world's file is named.

There is no need to unzip or unpackage anything.

Documentation and Other Projects by Me

My projects:

More Dragon-Proof Blocks is a pack that increases the number of blocks the Ender Dragon doesn't destroy.

Silk Touch-less Campfires is a pack that makes it so campfires will drop themselves when mined, even without silk touch.


There are a lot of tags in this pack that are used internally. All the custom tags are used somewhere in the pack. Click here to see a spreadsheet documenting the tags, what they contain, and where they are used. These are only used in beta versions currently.

Changes to Vanilla advancements:

The document can be found here. Only for 1.14 betas.
