Wearable Backpacks Mod is a Minecraft mod which adds backpacks. It continues the legacy of BetterStorage’s backpacks and brings it a beautifully designed and balanced alternative backpack option unlike any others.
What’s so great?
- There can be only one.
Where other mods store the contents of a backpack on the item itself, Wearable Backpacks Mod doesn’t. When a backpack is equipped, its contents are actually kept with the player itself. This also means that it is impossible to carry around multiple backpacks that contain items.
- Armor up, or storage up?
With the default settings, backpacks will function as armor, taking up the chest armor equipment slot like leather armor and protecting from damage. This way is that you have to choose between more protection or more storage. This is fully configurable, though, you don’t like it.
- Play with friends, share backpacks!
Having a backpack on your back looks cool and all, if only you could do something with that beauty. Lucky you! Other players (hopefully without ill intentions) can open your backpack and borrow a pick and some torches on a mining trip. This only works as long as your back is facing towards them, though.
- Dying is FUN!
Are you sick of losing all your valuables when you make a small little misstep into the nearest pool of lava? Don’t worry! The items inside your backpack will be mostly safe. While the backpack itself is not immune to explosions or being broken by other players, it will gently place itself down near your point of failure and be ready to be retrieved.
- Dyeing is fun~!
Backpacks can be colored using Minecraft’s fantastic dyeing system. Unlike some silly mods that only allow the 16 base colors, with our pretties, you can mix and match your dyes to customize them in any way you like.
- Configuration Nation
One aim of Wearable Backpacks Mod is to be incredibly configurable, allowing backpacks to be balanced, whether they are used in a personal hand-picked pack, a huge kitchen sink modpack or a deadly hardcore-massacre-of-doom experience with sprinkles on top.
Think of Wearable Backpacks as portable, wearable chests. After you have crafted one, you simply place it on the ground and fill it with whatever you would like to take with you. Next, you sneak and break the backpack to equip it. You will notice that equipping is faster than breaking.
Now that the backpack is where it belongs (your back), you can unequip it again by sneaking and right-clicking the ground with an empty hand (specifically, the top of a solid block).
