I have a private Survival Minecraft server my friends and I are looking to start up again but we all agree that we don't want to spend a large amount of time mining and gathering materials because of time restraints.
Is there a way to decrease the durability of all blocks by a certain factor and/or increase the effectiveness of tools and save those changes as server-wide configuration? The idea would be to speed up all mining (say 1.3x or 1.5x faster) with any tool. I don't want to run commands to give enchanted diamond tools to players, I just want all blocks to break faster.
I saw a YouTube video a while ago that showcased a JSON style config for changing world generation and biome data. Is there a similar system for configuring tools and blocks that I can apply to my server?
