Smithed imposes conventions for pack creators to follow allowing for a compatible pack ecosystem. Many of these conventions are required for packs to be submitted to the Smithed ecosystem. They allow for pack interoperability both within and without the ecosystem (i.e. they are designed to work in normal worlds).


How to name your tags, scores, and more!

Pack IDs

Extra metadata to include in your pack.mcmeta

CMD ID Prefixing

What numbers to choose for the CustomModelData field on items for custom models

Vanilla Overrides

How to properly override vanilla assets to be Weld Compatible

Tag Specification

A set of custom tags to respect while interacting with blocks, entities, and items


Many of these ideas were curated and refined from the Minecraft Datapack Discord Server. The current set of conventions were completely created from scratch from the learnings of this project.
