I'm working in a lab right now and we are trying to analyze interactions between people. Because of COVID we are limited to minecraft in order to simulate interaction and facilitate the lab safely.
Part of the problem is that we can't track people's location or what resources they interact with. If anyone has any ideas or possible codes for add-ons that could be used on a realms server that would be fantastic!
We need to be able to pull data from minecraft so that we can analyze any patterns of movement or interaction with building during different tasks.
To download the other ones you need to make a folder in the versions folder for minecraft and put the client and JSON file for the versions in there. They all need to be named the same aside from file extensions. Once you do that, you will be able to choose that version when making a new profile with the minecraft launcher.
That is why I think it is possible to potentially extract those statistics, but they are just the total statistics for a given world. Because I will be running numerous trials with lots of different participants it would become a lot to try and track in-between all of the different parts of the experiment.
Minecraft Realms has add-ons so I think the most plausible way to do it would be to write an add-on that could extract that data, but I am not sure how tot do that.
