Increase your storage and share storage spaces with your friends in this well-made portable storage mod called Wearable Backpacks!
What is the Mod About?
Created by PuppetzMedia and his team, this mod adds portable, placeable backpacks that are both unique and charming. Unlike similar mods, you can only have one bag in your inventory, and wearing the gear occupies the armor slot. The backpack can be dyed and accessed by other players even while you’re still wearing it – just like in real life! The mod is also highly configurable.
Should You Install it?
The mod is pretty lovely, well-made, and well-balanced. We highly recommend this mod even over other similar mods simply because it is more charming and balanced.
There can be only one: Where other mods store the contents of a backpack on the item itself, WB doesn’t. When a backpack is equipped, its contents are kept with the player. This also means it’s 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, protecting from as well as taking damage just like leather armor. This way, you have to choose between more protection or more storage. This is fully configurable, in case you don’t like it.
Play with friends, share backpacks: Having a backpack on your back looks cool and all, but if only you could do something with that beauty. Well, 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 toward them, though.
Dying is FUN: 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, after death, it will gently place itself down near your point of failure, ready to be retrieved.
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 WB is to be incredibly configurable, allowing backpacks to be balanced, whether they’re 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 backpacks as portable, wearable chests. After you’ve crafted one, simply place it on the ground and fill it with whatever you want. Next, sneak and break the backpack to equip it. You’ll 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).
