created by: r4isen1920

pack version: v4.1

Hardcore Gamemode

Hard difficulty only

  • More aggressive hostile mobs
  • Ranged hostile mobs has higher accuracy 
  • Iron Golems deal massive damage to players
  • You easily get hunger, more food is needed
  • etc.

Spectator Mode

  • Hardcore mode is dependent to the world's host; while connected players have their own independent life.
  • You only have one life, and you'll respawn only as a spectator.
  • If you want to be able to fly in Spectator Mode, you can optionally enable Education Edition:

Enabling the Add-On

To enable and experience Hardcore mode, do the following steps:

  1. Download the Add-on from the link below
  2. Enable Education Edition (optional)
  3. Apply both Resource Pack & Behavior Pack in a new or existing world
  4. Open or Create the world. It should automatically be active.

Realms Compatibility Information

The following are my requirements for this add-on to work on Realms:

  • Version Required: 1.16 atleast. This version also fixes the bugs regarding running commands using animation controllers on Realms.
  • Experimental Gameplay: Not needed. So it works on Realms.
  • Education Edition: You may not be able to enable this feature. Features such as being able to fly in Spectator Mode will not be possible on Realms.

Select version for changelog:

  • Updated download links. (A A A A A A A A)


  • Make sure to delete the old version first, before installing or importing the pack!

Recommended 1+ GB of free memory (RAM).

I havent tried it yet but pls just pls make it for 1.18 Edit: im going to use it for my yt i wont say what it is but im just going to say i have an addon is that ok?
es una buena app
I play Minecraft
Good idea love the fact I can use it on a realm BUTTTT if the host dies everyone dies is pretty stupid especially when playing on a R E A L M. Also the fact that I can’t respawn people if they die to a glitch or bug which Bedrock is known for is also really stupid.
I still am trying to figure out how to download it.
