Minecraft But Villagers Get Attracted By Emeralds Data Pack (1.19.2, 1.18.2) brings you a new mechanic that is very helpful while playing Minecraft! That is by adding a new “attraction” for villagers so that you can easily lure them into a place you want and start trading items with them, provide a safe place, convenience for moving,…! Two survival-friendly ways to easily relocate your villagers. No more long temporary minecart tracks or troubles with boats on land! Enjoy playing this data pack!


  • Introduce two modes to move villagers: the Follow mode or the Pickup mode.
  • If you want to exclude specific villagers from this attractive mechanic, you can add those entities the tag “pk_vfpl_exclude”.
  • Villagers with the data {NoAI:1b} will also be ignored by this mechanic.

Follow Mode:

The Follow mode is the one by default. If you have switched to the Pickup mode and want to get it back, you can still toggle it using the command:

    • function pk_vfpl:commands/mode_set_follow

How it works:

  • Hold an emerald blocks in main hand or off hand to make the villagers and wandering traders follow you instantly.
  • Those entities will be attracted in a radius of 10 blocks around the player, until it doesn’t hold the emerald block anymore, or go too far from them (more than 10 blocks away).
  • You can easily add or remove items that attract villagers in the item’s tag located in “data/pk_vfpl/tags/items/follow_mode_attractive.json“.

Pickup Mode:

The Pickup mode is an alternative mode if you find that the Follow mode is to “free” to use (thanks to Blockimendious for the idea).
You can switch to this mode using the command:

    • function pk_vfpl:commands/mode_set_pickup

How it works:

  • Like Piglins with golden items, villagers and wandering traders will rush towards emeralds being on the ground in a radius of 10 blocks, and will eventually pick them up. In this way, you can set up a track of emeralds to attract them.
  • When a villager pick an emerald, it will admire its catch during two seconds before getting back to its business or searching another emerald around.
  • If you drop a stack of several emeralds (more than one emerald) the villagers will only pick them up one by one, waiting two seconds before picking up the next one. So don’t worry if you missed and drop a full stack of emeralds at once!
