Many are purely original ideas of our own or of other people (see extra credits section). You may find a list of advancements here.

All five of the tabs in vanilla advancements have had many more advancements added to expand upon what was already there, and many new advancement tabs have been added for more specific categories.

- Item rewards given via functions.
A feature that can be turned on and off, item rewards give you a little extra incentive or reward to completing many of the advancements.
- Full translation support.
All advancements are fully translatable using the BACAP Language Resource Pack - currently Russian, Japanese, Chinese, French, German, Spanish, Pirate Speak and Lolcat languages are supported. You can help us translate - more details are below.
1) Unzip the compressed folder that you downloaded.
2) Copy the folder labeled "bac_advancements". Paste it into the following folder directory in the world you want to install them in: /datapacks.
3) Go into the world. A message should pop up saying you are using BlazeandCave's advancements pack, but if it doesn't, instead open up your advancements menu. The Beginning tab should be unlocked.
Nether Update Beta Build:
1.10 Beta Build 3 - a beta build for Minecraft 1.16 snapshot 20w13a or later - is available now, which currently contains 87 more advancements (for a total of 818 advancements in the datapack). Many are related to the new features added in the Nether Update.
Warning: The current beta build is functionally incomplete. While many new advancements are included and fully functional, they do not (yet) work with the advancements scoreboard, milestone advancements, or have any reward functions. That will come in a beta build closer to 1.16's release.
Download 1.10 Beta Build 3 here!
You can still download the current version for 1.15 in the Download Mirror.
Using the advancement scoreboard:
Completing each advancement triggers a function that adds one to a scoreboard, so it counts how many advancements each player on a world has obtained.
You can get the scoreboard to show up on the sidebar using the following command:
/scoreboard objectives setdisplay sidebar bac_advancements
Or on the player list that shows up when you press tab:
/scoreboard objectives setdisplay list bac_advancements
Please note that due to the way advancements and functions work, if a non-opped player gets an advancement they may not actually trigger any function rewards, so the scoreboard may not count for non-opped players on a server. However, you can fix this using the following command, which runs a special function that updates the scores for every player currently online.
Toggling reward functions:
Reward functions give you item or experience rewards upon completing some advancements. By default they are turned off. To turn them on enter the following command:
/scoreboard players set reward bac_settings 1
To turn them off enter this command:
/scoreboard players set reward bac_settings 0
You can set the advancements scoreboard to automatically update using this command:
/scoreboard players set adv_score bac_settings X
Where X is how often in seconds you want it to be updated. This setting is recommended for servers where the scoreboard won't update for non-opped players, and it is recommended that X is set to a high number for servers that are laggy or have a lot of people (e.g. 300 for 5 minutes).
X is set to 0 by default, which will cause it to only update from the functions (recommended for singleplayer or servers where everyone is opped)
You can also set the milestone advancements to automatically update in the same manner as the advancements scoreboard using the command:
/scoreboard players set checking bac_settings X
Again, X is set to 0 by default, which will cause it to only update from the functions (again, recommended for singleplayer or servers where everyone is opped)
Using the Language Resource Pack:
BlazeandCave's Advancements Pack has support for translation into other languages through use of the BACAP Language Resource Pack, which can be downloaded here.
The Language Pack is a resource pack that, instead of changing textures, adds more to language files to be used by the advancements pack.It is installed just like any other resource pack.When using it, you may choose any language that the Advancement Pack supports and it will change the names and descriptions of all of the advancements into that language.The following languages are supported, and we hope to add more in the future:
- Russian (By SoSeDiK) (Fully translated)
- Chinese (Simplified) (By Remilias_Scarlet and EddieT) (Fully translated)
- French (By Personnedu59) (Only translated up to 1.8)
- German (By PuddingPapst) (Only translated up to 1.8)
- Japanese (By Atmosphere Tile) (Only translated up to 1.6)
- Español (By Parritoso) (Only translated up to 1.3)

If you want to help us translate, you can get the base language file, which is an empty language file, which comes with the latest version of the BACAP Language Resource Pack, translate it, then send it back to us in a private message. You will be credited.
If you are running a server, please note in the description that it supports translation using the BACAP Language Pack, and provide a link to the Planet Minecraft page.
Updating to newer versions:
The Advancements Pack will be updated for later Minecraft versions and snapshots to add more advancements or fix bugs.
In order to update, simply delete the "bac_advancements" folder from your world, then copy and paste the new folder in. Please note that when you re-enter your world some or all of the advancements you have already obtained you may need to obtain again if certain advancements get shifted between tabs in an update.
